Donna is a lifelong poet and writer, she shares her love of God, and in helping others draw from His strength to get past life's struggles..
We Do Not Walk Alone
She awoke in the early morning getting ready for her daily run
She looked at all the beauty around her as she shields her eyes from the sun
Her heart is full of love to give, yet, she realizes she has given all she can
So she hides her heart, holds it close, then she tries to love once again
She runs through the tall grass, spinning and twirling all the while
The cool breeze blows through her hair, the daffodils make her smile
She dances towards the sun in delight as it sets past the meadow
Dancing beside her now was a very tall young fellow
He took her hand and said let's go, so they ran over towards the light
She was reluctant yet spellbound by His beauty that was set before her eyes
He knew she had taken this journey alone, searching for joy and peace
She never knew how to trust in herself, or how to reach for her own dreams
She bowed her head, turned to where the waterfalls kiss the morning dew
She loved the serenity, the feeling of his heart that beat ever so true
She always tried to believe in herself, to never let herself down and then
Life is a puzzle and sometimes we get lost then we have to learn to love again
What a lovely day this turned out to be, for she finally realized her dreams
He touched her soul, carried her heart and gave her love and peace
They danced their way to the distant light that shone in the brightest skies
For she was never alone her entire life for Jesus was always by her side...
"Let me paint you a picture - a picture with words"
Thank you Lord for the gift of writing poetry!

I'm sorry it took me so long to get this notification, there are forces at work to keep me from communicating on HubPages, many notices are not arriving in my emails and, had they not been attempting to keep me from my the0natureboy page I would not have found this notice.
In answer to your question, "Those who are babes in Christ, as I am, been saved since 2012, searching for God to show more of himself and less of me, the person but show me more of his will in my life. Is that the same thing as missing something in spirit?" I think so. Because we "woman (woven from man)" only have either our Femininity or Masculinity (Yin Yang) functioning in us we continually have a longing for something. Once we began to integrate them within ourselves "understanding" becomes our search but our parental, religious, school and other instructions sources taught us "dos and don'ts" rather than to explore both sides of everything to discover the "straight way with the narrow gate' Jesus spoke of and "middle path" from the Buddha. When you explore both sides we find there is a time for both, neither is always the correct one. That is what the Born Again's longing is for discovering and is why Genesis 2:24 say we are to leave parents, that includes the instructing us in "there's right and wrong."
I hope your New Year bring you to the opening of your understanding life's purpose is to know cause, effects and consequences. Peace!!

Such a beautiful well written poem Donna.
Donna Rayne (author) from Greenwood, In on December 22, 2019:
Thank you, Elijah, I never thought of it that way and it makes a lot of sense. Those who are babes in Christ, as I am, been saved since 2012, searching for God to show more of himself and less of me, the person but show me more of his will in my life. Is that the same thing as missing something in spirit?
Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington, DC USA on December 22, 2019:
That is very true, Donna, however, when we understand the broader meaning of Genesis 2:23 other than how most people believe it we should see how every physical longing is for something spiritual. After all Paul said "the invisible tings made are clearly seen by the things made" and that is why what's physically missing out of your lives represent something spiritual. So, when one finds themselves missing for something they should turn to spirit and inquire what is it I am missing out of my being.
Donna Rayne (author) from Greenwood, In on December 21, 2019:
Thank you so much, Elijah! I appreciate your kind words! Jesus saves the lost who don't even know they are lost but searching for something they know that is missing in their lives. And once WE find him (because he was always there) that void is filled with his love and our mortal lives will never be the same!
Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington, DC USA on December 21, 2019:
Donna, what a beautiful poem telling of your experience with finding the true love we all seek but few find it.
There is the hidden message many may not see in your words, "look for love within and not without mod ourselves", but that is the Christ message. That is why his primary teaching is we must shed all attachments to external things, ESPECIALLY FAMILY, for they are the things that keeps us from finding the love of life.
Thanks for sharing it.

Thank you so much, Dora! Thank you for reading!
Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on December 20, 2019:
What an encouraging message! This is an experience I covet for myself. Your last verse is a beautiful climax. Really good poetry!
Donna Rayne (author) from Greenwood, In on December 14, 2019:
Thank you, Brenda, I wrote this poem to show how Jesus' love is so pure and I drew a picture of a whispering, loving love that one seeks from a man or woman, leaves you dreamy and then... you discover it was Jesus all along... God is good!

Thank you very much, Lorna!

Beautiful and spiritual with a wonderful last verse. Lovely.
BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on December 13, 2019:
Wow! I had to read this again after I got to the ending to discover it was Jesus.
