When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

The Holy Ghost

Happy Birthday to my sweet grand-daughter Lillabeth Ann.  This is a poem that I wrote for her to mark her very special eighth birthday.  In our religion, there is just something so special about being old enough to be baptized as Jesus was.  She is growing into quite a beautiful young lady.  I couldn't be prouder of this wonderful girl.

The Holy Ghost
By Patricia A Pitterle

The Holy Ghost speaks softly
His is a quiet voice
With gentle, inner promptings
He helps you make your choice.

If you’re deciding something
Is wrong or right to do
Just listen to His still small voice
He will guide you through.

He whispers with his spirit
Right into you heart
You’ll have a warm soft feeling
You’ll know right where to start.

So as you learn to listen
And feel His gentle touch,
He will bear sweet testimony
That you are loved so much.

He’ll guide you in your choices,
In all you do and say
If you will just remember him
And don’t forget to pray.

Let comfort guide your actions
Be honest in your heart
The Lord will love and bless you
As you seek to do your part.


  1. Such a beautiful tribute to your granddaughter! I love your poem...and you're right...She is a beautiful young lady!
    Happy Birthday Lillabeth!

  2. You REALLY need to publish a book of your poetry, Mrs. Honestly. Beautiful. What a special thing for a young girl to have...

  3. LOVE your poem! Happy birthday to your sweet granddaughter!!! Such a special age. Congratulations to her too.

  4. I wish I'd had a grandmother around when I was growing up. Mine had all passed by the time I was old enough to remember anything. Fortunately, my children have grandparents and great grandparents around and your post reminded me of why I'm so grateful they are in my children's lives.
