Contemplative Corner – “Divine Parent”

You carefully take us by the hand
And guide us on our way each day,
Watching over us diligently,
Nudging us on with encouragement.
You give us wings of freedom
While keeping us close to your heart.
You comfort us when we are hurt
And cheer us on when we succeed.
You correct us when we do wrong
And relish us always as your own.
-Edward Hays
