Lord I lie tonight in the cold
unable to wrap myself in the cover of Your Grace.

The pain like snowflakes blanket me in a storm
that has no end.

Trouble tarries in this chill;
memories gust a relentless assault
sending the lack of warmth even deeper.

Like frozen rain stinging into the face of today
yesterday sleets downward.

Tomorrow too is frozen, its promises trapped
by lips unspeaking.

Shivering against the cold shakes loose
any hope of heavenly focus.

Lord in this night I lay, too cold
to pray...

Oh baby...
I know the kind
of quilt that is needed...
But I know I can't get it to you
soon enough...

As long as the Lord understands, I can take the cold until it sees fit to go away...I just need to know its ok sometimes to shiver...
love you lady

Even the deaf could hear the heart behind this, my friend... and He's always listening, even when we can't voice our pleas.

The beauty of this is exceeded only by the pain that penned it... I shiver as I read.

"Tomorrow too is frozen, its promises trapped
by lips unspeaking."   You write of pain so well.  I wish you relief...

Though temporarily, tomorrow seems frozen and it's promises trapped, those promises will become warm again.

This was just one of the most beautiful prayers I have read! From your heart to His.

Deeply deeply touching.

With this much sincerity I am sure you are not going to be sleeping without a hand resting on our shoulder.  Beautiful prayer, and yes, sometimes we do need to know that is okay to shiver.
