JUDGEMENT DAY ( 2014 ) 2014/04/06

I wish I had a quiet space

To patch my dreams and to replace

The worn out parts of shattered hope

That need research new ways to cope.

I’d like to think that there remains

A wistful thought which still contains

The wisdom that God’s left behind

For those of us who are not blind.

The special traits that used to be

A part of our resiliency

Have faded into lost success

And only add to our distress.

The times we knew, forever gone

Like dinosaur or mastodon

Can it be true, we’ve lost our way

Is this to be our judgement day ?

The saddest day I do recall

It came about late in the fall

I was a child that long ago

What caused it all I do not know.

The day was calm the air was sweet

With burning leaves along the street

The Yuletide was not far away

My thoughts ran wild for Christmas Day.

I had a friend ( she used to be )

She shared with me in secrecy

And told me Santa was a fake

I thought my heart would surely break.

Now that I’m old I comprehend

My world did not come to an end

But rather know when I am sad

I search for reasons to be glad.

We need to fill our lives with glee

Remembering that laughter’s free !








HAPPINESS ( 2014 )

Good morning world, I know your face

I hear your sounds, it’s quite a race

The nimble are just that and quick

It’s time to take your place and pick

Some goal you have decided on

An aim to base your life upon.

How marvelous the chance exists

You can succeed if will persists

I wish you luck and so much more

That is what love and friends are for !

TODAY I awakened with a hymn echoing in my head, ” Faith of our fathers, living still, In spite of dungeon, fire and sword;  O how our hearts beat high with joy, Whenever we hear that glorious Word !”  Wow, 3500 years of history crammed into one verse, and nothing has changed !  Is this possible ? And still the promise calls and the hymns ring out their joyous song.  ” Faith of our fathers, holy faith !  We will be true to thee till death. ”  My hispanic friends speak reverently of “los ultimos tiempos “.  Is there no path left to create a better world ?  I am saddened by man’s inhumanity to man, I am crushed by the anger and the ignorance of mankind.  I am brought to my knees in supplication, will you help me in my quest ?  I know it’s time !  How about it ?        Sincerely,                                Claire B.

Of all the gifts that God has given

And all the goals for which I’ve striven

The one I’ve chosen above the rest

That seems to me the ultimate test

Is the courage needed to be strong

To accept the guilt when I am wrong,

To love my God with all of my might

On the coldest morn or darkest night,

Follow His words wherever they lead

And volunteer when there is a need

Walk with Him whether it’s night or day

Pray for His blessings along the way !



I LOVE YOU ( 2014 ) 2014/04/02

The Ides of March have come and gone

Tis strange how phrases linger on

“I will return” impresses me

It had to do with liberty !

Words may convey the sentiment

That many heroes olden meant

And bring to us their magic power

Recalling glory’s finest hour.

But most of all I’d like to hear

Three little words upon my ear

Please take your pick, there are a few

My choice begins with “I love you” .


LOVE IS ALL ( 2014 ) 2014/04/01

Love cannot last for but a day

It does not happen quite that way

For love is meant to stay and stay.

Man will be faithless by design

Too shallow and prone to malign

With sentiment and thought unkind.

While God’s love is example set

And leaves us nothing to regret

It is the most to give and get.

So I shall always pray to be

Within that circle loved and free

To worship Him who’s there for me !
