A Thread of Mercy

In honor of Phyllis Walker

By Larissa Maxwell

A thread of mercy found its way in a dark world,

A strand of compassion extended to women in need,

Her disposition was so gentle,

Her empathy so real.


A thread of mercy wove its way through grief and pain,

A cord of hope reached out to those who had lost their grasp,

She gave only what she had,

The unfailing love of a Savior.


A thread of mercy brought a silent revolution,

A gossamer string of forgiveness, grace, and love,

She ministered well,

She heeded His call.

Dear Phyllis, you loved so well.
