Broken Dreams

I've read this poem on a few blogs, most recently on We Are All Mothers. I find myself reading it a lot more lately, several times in a row, and it's been on my mind constantly. I just love it.


As children bring their
broken toys
with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken
dreams to God, because
He was my friend.
But then, instead of
leaving Him,
in peace, to work alone;
I hung around and
tried to help,
with ways that were my own.
At last, I snatched them
back and cried,"How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said,
"What could I do?
You never did let go."

it is so hard to let our baby dreams go, but i feel like after much fighting and foot stomping on my part, i am almost there. it is so scary and sad sometimes, but i feel like i am at the end of my rope trying to resolve them myself. (HUG)

Just found your blog...I love that poem! So true...it is so hard for us to "let go". Gods ways are not our ways and that can be tough sometimes.

That is a great poem. Makes me do a lot of self-analyzing.

I'm glad I read this. I haven't been on this same road as long as you, but I'm looking forward to 2011 being better than our 2010. Love your song of the moment. Gives hope.
