A Time to Uplift


I am reminded of a girl who once prayed for me


She use the word uplift.  Lift her up, Lord!


And that’s what I needed. Don’t we all?


To be lifted UP

                     and not let down


Unless we must receive some sad news that only the one who lifts us up could impart charitably.


These are the ones, The Charitable Ones, who know how to gently




        Feet first

   On level ground


And wait…      with us


Until the time for lifting has come again.
