There is no way I can explain

The value of the sun or rain

Or birds that span this vast terrain

Like herds that roam life’s wild domain,

Or early dawn and morning dew

Like twilight’s glow before curfew

While oceans, lakes and rivers too

Are full of life that’s out of view.

Too much for us to understand

That exists under God’s command.

We need to learn what has been planned

So we know how to take a stand !

 

HIS BUGLES CALL ( 2018 ) 2018/06/22

” I am a man beyond reproach

And proud to say God is my coach “.

Perhaps these words were said aloud

To Pharoah and his hostile crowd

When Moses stood before the throne

And pled the case for the Lord’s own,

His people and all they possessed

Escaped into the wilderness.

While we who now observe these days

Hold fast remembering God’s ways

The Lord protects us one and all

Until that day His bugles call !

Noisy little housewren, tan, grey and ever small

Early morning serenade is my wake up call

Upon my jaded ears your song doth sweetly fall

Oh tiny messenger, great joys you share with all !

Today is such a lovely day

So full of Spring in every way

My mind is clear, the air has bounce

I need embrace it every ounce !

The buds are blooming everywhere

Their fragrance permeates the air

Oh what a joy our God does bring

To each of us with newborn spring !

Praise God above for only He

Does have the power to set us free

In every storm He is the Port

That we must seek if we are caught.

Without His love we are remiss

His Word brings us eternal bliss

There is this path that does unwind

That only God can help us find !

 

IT’S PARADISE ( 2018 ) 2018/06/18

There is this stairway that I know

I’m not quite sure where it does go

I only know that one day all

Must make that choice their final call

And exit with one thought in mind

It’s Paradise we hope to find !

 

GOD BLESS !

To all the men we have adored

Our fathers, sons and blessed Lord

The uncles all who spared us space

And grandpapas that kissed each face

Who filled in for each missing dad

In every empty place we had.

This  family of kindly men

Who came to bat, again, again

And never once did let us down

Changing to laughter every frown

Whoever dreamt that we might find

Some other men to be this kind

Hard to accept as truth maybe

Love’s more than just paternity !
