"Here I am, Lord, I come to do Your will."





























By Laurel Ann Dukart, member Court Marquette #677, Grand Forks, ND 

 



Division IV, Poetry, Third Place Winner


"Here I am, Lord, I come to do Your will."


Here I am, Lord, down here! It's me,

The Catholic Daughter with the wrinkled and age-spotted hands.


I want to do Your will, Lord,

But at my age how can I fit into Your plans?


I can pray, I can bake,

I can love, that's a start!


I offer to you arthritic hands, blurred vision, 

And my arrhythmic but Adoring Heart!


By Susan Waldon,, Member Court Sacred Heart, 1908 Harvey, ND   

 



Division x, Poetry, Third Place Winner


"Here I am, Lord, I come to do Your will."


The March for Life

Thirty hour bus ride

Walking through puddles and snow

But all I feel is joy in my heart'What netter way to do Go's will

Than to march for His creation

Each person marching for a cause bigger than himself

Giving a voice to the voiceless


By Susan Waldon,, Court Marquette #677, Grand Forks, ND
