My Journey to God

Look Up Child

Look up my child. Let me see your smile.
Put away the phone. Walk with me awhile.
Tell me what is happening, no distractions, no ring tone,
just a quiet conversation, you and me, alone.
Please don’t shut me out, say everything is fine.
I want to know what’s going on. What is on your mind?
Bring me anything, your questions and your doubts.
I will try to guide you as you figure this life out.
Share with me your dreams, your hopes, your goals and plans.
I will cheer you on. I am your biggest fan.
I will always be there, just a call away.
Simply whisper “Our Father” and then begin to pray.
