I posted this poem last year but in light of the daily death tolls drubbing on our minds; I thought that maybe this little verse will help as you face yours.
Two Men in Two Storms
Two men went down to the sea one day
Paul in chains and Jonah running away
“I need to lie down” was all Jonah could say
So he slept through the storm
When he should have prayed
But prisoner Paul cried to God in his boat
Till an angel came down with a message of hope
Then with joy he encouraged his friends
Saying Jesus would keep them all safe in the end
It took a big fish to get Jonah to go
Tell others of mercy and God’s love for the world
But our friend Saint Paul shows us the right way
That when God sends the storm we must trust and obey!
