The Door of Grace

by Michelle Miziolek
(Richmond Hill)

My old life is over but have a new start
A horse named Grace with such love in her heart
Kids off to College and so much more
But this little white mare has opened a door

I go to see her as much as I can
Groom, tack up and ride as you see it's his plan
God closed one door but he opened another
Entered not knowing what I was about to discover

I tell her my stories as I see to her needs
Tales of injustice and how my heart bleeds
Once on her back this all disappears
My worries, my sadness and all of my fears

She stands very still if my tears start to flow
Then she lets out a sigh and my face has a glow
I let her feel my heart beating with brush in my hand
She must know for quietly in her stall she will stand

So fitting a name for a little horse who saved
Just waiting for me the path had been paved
If your reading this now don't give up on your hopes
Lift your eyes up to Heaven, God will show you the ropes.
