Psalm 73:23-24                    English Standard Version (ESV)

 Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
    you hold my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will receive me to glory.

                   Emmanuel

He is with me yet.
The Word and the Way always,
He is with me!
Cause me to hear your loving-kindness this morning,
Cause me to feel your love all day,
Cause me to know trust.
I lift my soul to your Spirit.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
