Bill Bowles: I Think I Know Myself

By Bill Bowles

I think I know myself fairly well,
Though probably not so well or fairly.
At least sometimes surely and hopefully.
I believe often I am who I want to be
A caring, compassionate, good willing
Disciple of Jesus, the Son of God, Savior
Of the World, friend of all the human race!
And as our Lord Jesus teaches us;
we are to love the Lord our God with
All of mind, heart, soul and strength.
I live by commitment, daily prayers
and promises, and actions with the
Holy Spirit’s guidance, nudges, promptings
Recognizing I must be open, attentive,
And always willing to learn good graces
From every human being whether they
Know they are blessings to others or not.
