About the Writer:
Sherrill Schlimpert

An ordinary suburban girl with an extraordinary passion for seeking the Lord’s will in her life, Sherrill is more than a poet. She is a retired elementary school teacher, mother of two grown children, and wife for over 31 years. One dreary morning's drive awakened her passion for writing prayer-poetry as God greeted her with a spectacular sunrise. Her flow of words and faith has filled two self-published books so far.


A Daily Thanks

By Sherrill Schlimpert

From Cream for Your Coffee…Sherrill's Book of Poetry


Lord, fill me with Your Spirit

That soars on wings of grace.

Help me to walk always in thankfulness.

Lord, may I recognize Your face.


Don’t let me miss the sunshine

On a day that You have kissed.

And even on days of winter

Help me not to have missed


The ways that You speak to our hearts

In blessings we come to expect,

Our food, our family, the flowers, the trees,

Let me thank You with all respect.


Help my heart stay in tune with Yours

As I encounter come what may,

But don’t let me look past my blessings,

That You send me day after day.
