We had an enjoyable afternoon, reading the work we had done at home, completing an exercise (writing a piece using words of only one syllable, not as easy at it sounds) and making plans for the future.
The pieces we had written entitled ‘Myself’ produced deep theological work as well as amusing ones, poetry as well as prose. This is Sheila Clarke’s contribution, one which is worthy of being reproduced here :-
May I introduce myself to you?
Not with a multitude of words, only a few.
My name is Sheila Clarke, to Carlisle
Christian Fellowship I go.
I worship Almighty God, whose loving
care in abundance I do know.
Through my Saviour, Jesus, I know the
full joy of all sins forgiven.
I am loved and accepted by God, am on
my way to his home in heaven.
I’m travelling on the journey of life,
which one day will end,
then eternity in heaven with the Lord
Jesus Christ I’ll spend.
