  1. heard this quote this morning and it inspired this poem:
    The Ash Heap
    Danette Kettwich 11/15/2011

    Sitting amongst the ash heap
    Lord I find you there
    Disaster all around me
    I have hope in earnest prayer

    Sitting amongst the ash heap
    I find strength in you
    No matter what becomes
    I know you will see me through

    When I’ve lost it all in life
    Ashes in my hair
    I’m closer to the ground
    And I know I find you there

    Lord, If this is what it takes
    For my heart to seize
    Permit the trials come
    Lead me down onto my knees

  2. I forgot to add a verse to the above…

    The Ash Heap

    Sitting amongst the ash heap
    Lord I find you there
    Disaster all around me
    I have hope in earnest prayer

    Sitting amongst the ash heap
    I find strength in you
    No matter what becomes
    I know you will see me through

    When I’ve lost it all in life
    I can start anew
    Not in my own power
    It’s all in what You will do!

    Sitting on the ground broken
    Ashes in my hair
    I’m closer to the ground
    And I know I find you there

    Lord, If this is what it takes
    For my heart to seize
    Permit the trials come
    Lead me down onto my knees
