DON’T WORRY: A POEM
BY: TAMMY FROST
Good morning campbellsworld visitors.
The following note and poem from children’s author Tammy Frost is a great way to begin our new column, ‘Saturday Surprise’ I hope you find it as helpful as did I. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that can bring peace to our soul.
Be sure to keep reading after the poem to learn of Tammy and her work.
I wrote this poem at a time when I was worried about many issues in my life. It gave me pause, when
the poem came to me. I have to stop and remember to listen to the small still voice of God. I hope you
enjoy it and find peace in its words.
Don’t live your life in a flurry.
Don’t slip and slide in the muddy slurry.
Don’t run and scurry.
Don’t whimper and worry.
Ask, and God will help in a hurry.
