A peaceful calm invades the gloom

Now struggling to control the room

Today I can’t pursue a thought 

That is uncouth or seems untaught !

My day is much too important 

To entertain sounds dissonant

I’m looking forward to a true

Enjoyment of all I might do.

My life is full of joy and care

Because I’m sure that God is there !

Where sounds of silence fill the air

And winds of time do memory spare

The depth of emptiness will stare

Into a crowd that does not care !

The tiny child is full of grace

Such sweetness and quite fair of face

This peaceful babe that cuddles so

Does warm the heart with inner glow !

I never thought that I would be

Enchanted by each small baby,

How wonderful that God does show

To all the way our love should grow !

Our heroes bold, those men of yore

Brave soldiers who did wage the war

They fought and died to make us free

And won for us our liberty !

They’d come from every walk of life

And served us well in times of strife

They sacrificed both lives and land

To save us from the tyrant’s hand !

These battles waged within the past

We’d hoped would be our very last

Now seems we’ve made a grave mistake

And find our world facing heartache

What shall we do, where will we turn

Who’ll save us now the beast’s returned ?

 

THE ARK ( 2014 ) 2014/07/27

Old Noah was an honest man

Who followed God’s exact command

It made no sense to build that boat

No one was sure if it would float !

Then after all those tedious years

Rife with derision, jokes and jeers

The day arrived to pack the space

With creatures from just everyplace !

Now if you thought the ark a chore

To fill it would take so much more

Corralling that exotic strife

Would be the effort of his life !

But Noah’s band stuck to their gun

They needed food for everyone,

Almost five thousand years ago

As Genesis has told us so,

His years nine-hundred-fifty were

Thank God for him, our forefather !

 

 

COURAGE ( 2014 ) 2014/07/26

I want to know about my dreams

And if they fit into life’s schemes,

How are they meant to pave the way

To help me breach the last relay?

The vigil bell rings loud and clear 

Declaring one sojourner here

The task is hard, perhaps too long

To reach God’s ears by evensong !

I’ve cast my lot upon the wind 

Forgive me Lord, I know I’ve sinned

There is no time to come again

My visit soon must meet its end !

My life has been a series of

Moments inspired by God and love

Pain and grief weigh-in second best

While peace and joy exceed the rest !

If I could wish one thing for you

To truly last your whole life through

It would be that you’ll find the one

Who’ll be your stars and moon and sun !

Lifetime partners with needs divers

Our God has shown us, verse by verse

This destiny designed for us

With Him it will be glorious !
