Give me the lowest place: not that I dare
Ask for that lowest place, but Thou hast died
That I might live and share
Thy glory by Thy side.
Give me the lowest place: or if for me
That lowest place too high, make one more low
Where I may sit and see
My God and love Thee so.

Wow…this is strong. Don’t know that I’ve ever prayed like that….very convicting!
My mother was an English Professer, but after she retired she was happy to fold towels and sell lunch tickets at a nursing home — every Friday for several years. For Mom, service was service. Then she lived at this nursing home during her last illness. Her service was honored and she was in a familiar place.
Thank you for your thoughts. Blessings to you and yours.
So much in so few words –
Hi RuthAnn, So true. How wonderful to simply share God’s love…
