I Am No Sailor

Vast, vast is the ocean
Swelling is the tide
On the edge of this boat
I eagerly search for a sign
Show Yourself, O Mighty One
My only quest is You
I wait, wait, watching
For You to tell me what to do

Silent, silent I wonder
How do I use these tools
You know I am no sailor
I feel lost amid the hues
Relentless questions batter me
Like waves upon the sand
I watch, watch, intently
For Your strong, guiding hand

Pulling, ever pulling
Is the current strong
Still, I keep a steady course
Don’t let the wait be long
Show me a direction
And I will go with glee
I dare not trust my own heart
No, I will wait for Thee

Shining, blinding is the sea
Upon which I sail
Be ever close to me
Come what stormy gale
I can’t see what lies ahead
I depend on You to guide
Breathing, breathing deeply
I rest - You are by my side

hey by the way, do you have a button for your blog? I have you listed on my blogroll but can't seem to find a button to put with it!?

Jonathan & Ashley Slater said...

Hey Jennifer--- to make a blog button you simply need to upload your photo to something like photobucket... then that should give you a direct link code... I copied the coding below but it wouldn't let me post it so you need to delete all of the *asterisks!

so all you would need to do is add your blog url and the direct link code where I put it below. Then you can add it to a html widget! And that is it!! If you have any questions, just let me know!

<*a href="YOUR URL HERE" target="_blank"*><*img src="COPY AND PASTE DIRECT LINK FROM PHOTOBUCKET HERE"/>*
<*a href="YOUR URL HERE"* target="_blank"*><*img src="COPY AND PASTE DIRECT LINK CODE FROM PHOTOBUCKET HERE"/*><*/a><*/text*area*>
