We would like to share one of Connie's poems.
God's hands are reaching out
To those sunk deep in sin
He loves the ones who've scorned His name
And bids them "Come To Me"
Embracing all who on Him call, He giveth victory
He left hand bids all sinners
Wandering in the cold
"Come Unto Me, I'll set you free"
And make you fully whole
His right hand renders justice
For all His Chosen Ones
He loves us now, He'll love us when
Our earthly race is done
So place your life now in God's Hands
And let Him lead you on
He knows, He cares, He understands
And soon He'll say, "Well done"
Lift up your hands and praise His name
For He is worthy now
You cannot see what is to come
The why, the when, or how.
