Second love

years have passed swiftly
my mind, my heart distracted
months of preparation
for the mission field
then the years of serving

my pen ran dry

with Jesus as my first love
writing was my second
and in pursuing the work of One
in a new and foreign way
I have lost the other

I know I can have both
for He tells me, over and again
the He provides the words
if only I will share them

as we begin preparations to come back 
to the life we had forever placed behind us
may I find the path to return
to my life of words

sharing His heart and mine

My heart is overflowing with a good theme;
I recite my composition concerning the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
