EXCUSE ME but have you been searching for the rainbow ? Did you know that Methuselah of Genesis fame lived 969 years and was the grandfather of Noah, known for his construction of the Ark ? Wow, a mouthful ! God introduced the rainbow as a reminder to all that He would honor His vow to never again flood the world in perpetuity ! I learned that when I was but a small girl and since then each rainbow I have seen reinforces my belief. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our leaders could instill in us that kind of trust ? Oh how I wish ! Remember Daniel 2 and his feet of clay, well welcome to reality ! Clay just reminds me of a lot of mud ! How about you ?
I’ve loved the water all my life
The sounds of water soothe my strife
A river, stream or peaceful lake
Will always be my piece of cake.
The waterfalls take special place
They paste a smile upon my face
Seawater laps in quiet ways
And brings great peace into my days.
But best of all those waves that shout
And call my name invite me out
Oh what I’d give for just once more
To laze upon the ocean’s shore !
I’M NOT LOST ( 2015 ) 2015/07/30
I have trod a perilous path in my search for the Lord
And have paid a precious price much more than I could afford
I left my old world behind in search of His peace and grace
Knowing well in advance that I can never see His face.
Now the love of the Lord is beside me where ere I go
And the moments that He guides me are what I’ve come to know
The road is longer than I thought, much greater is its cost
It doesn’t matter what it takes without Him I am lost !
ROCKY ROAD ( 2015 ) 2015/07/29
Sometimes the road is rocky, sometimes it’s dusty too
Sometimes it’s filled with traffic, sometimes there’s but a few
Along life’s road there’s trouble perhaps no happy end
This is no simple matter for each must find a friend
With all the grit and dirt, the rocks, pebbles and each stone
God never meant for us that we travel on alone !
RUNAWAY ( 2015 ) 2015/07/28
Oh Cinderella are you still there
Is that you hiding beneath the stair
I’m sorry if your life went awry
I know you’ll give it another try
There’s a lesson I have learned from you
To myself I shall remain true blue.
And when my back is against the wall
I won’t be shy I will make that call
One-eight-hundred fairy A-I-D
Won’t you please come and help set me free
I’ve been a grownup for far too long
It’s time I chose to just tag-along !
AT HIS FEET ( 2015 ) 2015/07/27
My heart is full, my mind is clear
I want to shout to those who’ll hear
There is a God who watches all
He is the power that makes the call.
The sun, the moon, the stars that glow
They are all part of His great show
The wind, the air, the planets too
Are part of His vast retinue.
There is no deed that goes unseen
Though it be ugly or obscene
He notes each act of kindness shown
And from which tree each leaf has blown.
This universe may never know
The depths to which His powers go
There is no wisdom so complete
That does not tremble at His feet !
PERFORMANCE ( 2015 ) 2015/07/26
Oh blessed Lord I cannot bear
The madness of this world we share
Please help us through these times of need
To vanquish those who will not heed.
Grant us the strength to stand up tall
Declare our choice before the fall
His time is near, He’ll not be late
This world is all His vast estate.
Who are we, only passersby
And on His care we all rely
Please help us Lord to do our best
We know that You’ll perform the rest !
