"Bars"

Dear Lord, with a heavy heart I
get down on my knees to pray-
You know how much I miss my son
since he went away.
He has lost his freedom, Lord, for
the things that he has done-
But he's still my shining star,
He's still my loving son.

When the darkness comes and invades
his soul at night-
And when the bars are closed behind
him an locked up tight-
Send an angel to him , Lord,
Let him know she's there.
Oh Lord, please hear my cry- hear
this Mothers prayer.

Oh Lord, how I miss him...for he's
still my little boy-
Outside in his sandbox playing with
a tinker toy-
He's still the child I tucked in at
nite and read stories too-
He's still the teenager that took care
of me when I had the flu.

Dear Lord , have your angel protect him
through the nite-
And let her still be with him come
the morning light.
I'm giving you my son Lord, mold him
with your care-
Let him know that in his heart-
Mother's always there!

WELL, I thought if I was going to CRY, then I needed a few MOM's to join me!

I try to send my Guardian Angel everynight to watch over my son while he is in Prison!

I think it is working!

Hey I have been using that verse since my son when in Praise God I am not alone The lord works in misterious ways. He uses inmates time for his glory that is a time when they turn to him. So let's keep them all lifted high and let God do the rest beatiful Poem..


Hebrew 13:3
