It Only Takes A Minute.....

It's been a rough week and a half for me and my family. Many family members have come up with different health problems. This has caused much anxiety and I would humbly ask for your prayers this week.

To aid in ridding myself of the anxiety and to help remind myself where my strength lies, I've written this poem. Thanks for stopping by and visiting... Kitty

It Only Takes A Minute

It only takes a minute, to brush your teeth and go
Into the world, drive to the job, running to and fro
It seems a must that we just trust we’ll get it all just right
But something says, did I forget? It’s edged just out of sight.

It seems there’s days when troubles rise, it’s all out of control
When peace within seems lost, there’s nothing to console
Where is the thing that kept me sane, the thread I thought was there
Oh did it break, where did it go? Does no one out there care?

“Be Still My Child” a voice I hear, so small I hardly heard
What was that sound, soft on the wind, the calling of a bird?
Again I hear, “Be Still Your Heart, Have Faith, Just Trust In Me”
“Ah yes”, I say, “What’s wrong with me?” I need to let it be.

You see my friend, I only need to put my faith “In Him”
With troubled life and all the strife, it isn’t just a whim.
He is the thread that still is there, my pain has blinded me.
For Christ the King, my Lord of Lords has died to set me free.

So when you feel that feeling rise, that life you can’t control
Things get rough, you just can’t bear, the hurting of your soul.
It only takes a minute to just say a little prayer
Just give to “HIM”, all your hurt, “He” is the one that cares.


  1. What a beautiful poem Kitty. You and your family are in my prayers, I hope your family's health problems heal quickly xo

  2. Sorry you are going through a difficult time.
    What a beautiful poem!

  3. Mom, your poem is beautiful. I hope you are feeling a little better and it sure does seem like our family is getting downpoured with things right now. We will make it through, love you, Heather

  4. Kitty, you and Heather share many talents. We know where she gets hers, my sweet lady! She is a prize for sure.

    Yes, the dust will be bad and I'll be impatient while it's being done but the end result will be so worth it. I'll have more hanging space for my eye candy!!!

    Thank you for visiting with me and looking at the delightful little bags I make. I just gotta have fun and keep busy for an "old lady'!! LOL


  5. Sorry to hear of difficult times right now, but your poem is beautiful!! Take care of yourself and those you love!

  6. Hi Kitty,
    Sorry to hear that times are rough for you and the ones close to you. But I think it's so good that you have put your sorrow into a poem. Out of something bad something beautiful arises. I like that.
    Warm wishes to you and everybody around you, I will be thinking of you, hugs LiLi

  10. Amen Sweet Friend, and SO true. I love that everything, no matter how small or insignificant or big and powerful is in His glorious hands. Prayers lifted for you Kitty. :)


  11. Wonderful Kitty. God builds and molds us in so many ways. To everything there is a seson. Some seasons are easier to go thru than others. But rest assured, being the divine creator is not a part time job. God is alive and working with us, through us and for us in every season. You and your family are on my prayer list. A shout from me to heaven on behalf of all of you.
    Hang in there der

  12. Kitty... I will keep you and your family in my prayers.... We all have our times we need to draw strength from others... Hope you receive a outpouring of strength and support from other caring about what you and your family are enduring....
