Poet’s Corener: Nestled in the Arms of God

Nestled In the Arms of God

By Bonnie Marie Playle, Soldotna

It’s comforting to know whether it be human or animal,

that God is always near.

It doesn’t matter if we’re conscious of His presence or not,

with God we have nothing to fear.

If we’re young or old, rich or poor

it doesn’t matter, in Gods’ eye all is the same,

even in the animals, the biggest, meanest He can tame.

When I have loss, heartache or pain,

I’m nestled in the arms of God and kept safe and sane.

I’ve lost multiple family members, friends and pets galore,

thru it all God nestled me, it was never a chore.

I’ve had several dogs and cats in my life, most of which have passed.

There is no need for my feelings to be masked; they’re nestled in the arms of God.

To be nestled in the arms of God, what a beautiful place to be.

To think I’m all important to Him, yes ME.
