Still Saturday - Waiting

"Thou art the Lord who slept upon the pillow,
 Thou art the Lord who soothed the furious sea,
 What matter beating wind and tossing billow
 If only we are in the boat with Thee?

 Hold us in quiet through the age-long minute
 While Thou art silent, and the wind is shrill:
 Can the boat sink while Thou, dear Lord, art in it?
 Can the heart faint that waiteth on Thy will?"

Amy Carmichael

Joining the others at Sandy's today:

Blessings dear friends,

"In the boat with Thee."
This. Exactly. Thank you, Linda.

This is beautiful, Linda.

Dear Linda
Those age-long minutes sometimes make us just as afraid as the disciples! But even then we can only call out to our Lord, knowing that He always hears!
Much love XX
