Follow Me


Follow Me

Follow me, little one –

I will not lead you astray.

Follow me, innocent one –

I’ll follow you someday.

While you are young

And growing more each day,

Let me guide your footsteps

In a safe and thoughtful way.

When you face some crossroads

And wonder where to turn,

Let me help you choose, and

Let me help you learn.

Soon enough you’ll find me

Needing help, seeking your advice.

But for now, follow me, my love –

Your company feels so nice!

    Jan, after one of those “I can’t sleep nights”, I tried your idea and dragged out of bed and worked with a psalm and then checked your blog. Even shared it on Facebook! Still hope for this old dog I guess.

    Thank you and enjoy your time with family:)

    • Thank you for checking my blog. I hope you found some inspiration, maybe a few chuckles, and some food for thought… and then had a good night’s sleep. God bless you! ❤ Happy New Year!! ❤

  6. Jan, you did a lovely job putting together today’s message. You and I love the same pictures from Bob’s and my trip up the Madison Range and yes, that first one is a keeper. I took some photography classes here in town last year and learned the most about composition and “filling the frame” from the renowned Gerry Mooney. Gerry is a photo-journalist and tries to tell stories with one shot…like the one of the sign and the elevation…

    I-Phone 6 is the phone I used for these shots and it did a great job.

    Praise God for His glory in creation and may we all be the stewards He calls us to be!

    • Ah, I see the evidence of your classes with Gerry. I have taken a class from him, too. But my iPhone6 doesn’t take the same kinds of photos yours does! 🙂 It has to do with your artist’s eye! And your answer to that call to stewardship!


  7. So much love, Jan. I have a question for you. =) My mom calls her twin sister every morning at ten and every night at seven. They have been best friends for 82 years. My aunt was my lifelong correspondent. For about a year now, her body has been weakening but her spirit is so bright. Mom spends at least 30 minutes 2x a day with her sister, reading her uplifting things, telling her news of the family. If it’s okay with you, Jan, I’d love to start sending your poems to my mom so she can read them to my aunt. I wrote a little about their story here: https://www.kindspring.org/my/feed/index.php?sid=207601 With smiles and gratitude, ♥. Niki

    Thank you for all your wonderful comments Jan. I am so happy our Bob is doing better. Cleve keeps having trouble with his breathing and lungs still. We are keeping the faith and keeping our chins up. Wishing for a better, healthy new year. Love what you are doing to your floors. I bet their is a lot of history and stories coming from those old boards… good bones for a new beginning in your home. love you two. Please take care and I think of you often. Much love and hugs to you both. Tell my Bob to keep his powder day, as John Wayne would say….lol

  10. Lovely photos and poem, Jan! You have reminded me of the wonderful days spent in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia! The deer there are very tame. 🙂

  11. It is so important to have parental guidance in the younger years, as your poem so beautifully expresses.
