The men who died on that first day,

Our heroes who did lead the way

They won the field in spite of fear,

Though lack of powder cost them dear.

Those patriots did do their best

And tried to scatter all the rest,

It took five years to end that war

So many lives and too much more.

Now once again we face a fight

To conquer dark, embrace the light,

As evil does lay siege our door

And aims to crush us evermore !


YOUR VOICE ( 2015 )

There is this message I’d like to send

Across the land to both foe and friend

There is a God and He loves us all

Size matters not, whether great or small

He doesn’t care if we’re fat or thin

It’s the condition our heart is in.

It has to do with the way we think

Are we satisfied or on the brink

It’s the simple things that rate us all

Not the obvious, like short and tall.

It’s the kindness and the depth of love

It’s the hopes that we are dreaming of

It’s the job we do from day to day

To comport ourselves in every way.

There’s a world out there waiting for us

To join our God in His grand chorus

Won’t you stand up now and make a choice

And pledge to Him the power of your voice !

Oh blessed Lord how the heart does sing

With all the bliss of remembering

The sweetest song of each nesting bird

That even angels in heaven heard,

As the hopeful times of yesterday

Merge hearts that are free to laugh and play

Ere the dark descends from up above

To scatter dreams of remembered love !

When the battle’s over and the fighting done

With God’s will the healing process has begun !


THE LIGHT OF WISDOM ( 2015 ) 2015/11/27

There is a light that burns so bright

Its luminescence floods the night

It is the light that knowledge brings

Into our lives where freedom rings.

The song we hear is incomplete

Its notes sing out both clear and sweet

All promising that we shall learn

How to address one great concern.

Our safety lies within that glow

Where wisdom’s power does constant grow

Else who is left to keep the lights

Forever burning through our nights ?



THANKSGIVING DAY ( 2015 ) 2015/11/26

While winter winds do snow and blow

And springtime rains make all things grow

While summer sun warms all we’ve got

And autumn crops do fill the pot

We need to say our thanks once more

Before we exit life’s back door.

How marvelous our God must be

He did all this for you and me

There is no way we can repay

What He has done in one short day !


ONE SMALL PRAYER ( 2015 ) 2015/11/25

There is a garden in the mist

Where hopes and dreams by chance exist

Just close your eyes and be prepared

Perhaps one day you’ll visit there

And if you do, remember me

Say one small prayer in memory !
