Its My Turn – BG Jenkins

Here is my take this week and it’s not one of the writing prompts.  Honestly it came from thinking of you and Cathy, as well as some of my prayer sisters who help me through…and how all of you have.  Thank you.  Your post was so touching that I thought about not putting this in here and waiting longer.  BG Jenkins


It’s My Turn


Its My Turn - BG Jenkins

When someone comes with deep concerns-

A health issue, troubles to burn,

An ax to grind, or things to learn…

Just be there.


Sometimes your friend will talk it through,

Sometimes, they need a word or two.

Sometimes, you’ll look for other clues…

Just listen.


And when you speak, speak words of love,

Sometimes, they’ve borne more than enough.

Sometimes, the things in life are tough…

Be gentle.


And if the tears, or outbursts come

Just give a hug, and guard your tongue.

We’ve all had days to come undone…



You’ll never know when your turn’s near

For wanting hope, for dousing fears,

Or needed prayers for God to hear…

Be ready.


These friends of ours are precious gems,

Through loss and gain, through thick and thin;

Our God appointed loving friends…

Be thankful.


And when it’s over, said and done-

We’re grateful for these kindred ones

Who’ll walk with us for years to come…

Our blessings.


It’s my turn now, as you can see,

To offer hope, serenity;

I pray I do it graciously…

Like you have.
