The  steeple bells do  loudly ring

As  old familiar  words we sing

To  praise our Lord and  those  above

With  boundless  sounds  of our true  love

Accept  this gift from  us below

It  is the way  our faith we show !

 

 

 

IT’S POLITICS ( 2020 )

Some  days may start with  smiles and grin

Before  life’s  problems  do begin

Somehow  we never  seem to know

Which  way each  season’s  wind will  blow.

We  take our chances,  pray a lot

Make  do the best with what we’ve got

Remember  how the people care

The  kindest are more  prone to share.

Today  the nation’s  full of fools

Believing  they make up  the rules

And  follow any path  they choose

Without  a threat of  win or lose.

How  sad that  we are come to this

Peace  destroyed by a ” Judas ” kiss !

Oh little lamb so pure and sweet

I  lay my life  here at  your  feet

If  I should  die before  I wake

I  beg  You Lord,  my soul  please take

For  it  is Yours  and all  I  own

Wherein  the seeds of love  are sown

And  so  my  heart  is  witness to

This  simple  gift  I offer You !

 

AMEN.

 

AFTER EACH FALL ( 2020 ) 2020/01/18

When  I  was sweet sixteen,  long time ago

The  world was all  mine to worship and grow

I  promised me that I’d try hard to  be

The  bestest girl  that anyone could see.

I’d  make  my mark with the greatest of ease

Doing  whatever it would take  to please

Now  life has come and gone with  fewer dreams

Leaving  me falling  apart at the seams.

I’m  sure that the Lord  will always be there

To  buck up my shoulders,  teach me to care

While  I’ve  discovered after  beaucoup  years

To  make peace with  myself,  dry up my tears

Cause  it’s not the results  that count at all

It’s  whether you rise up  after each fall !

 

 

TAKE CARE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/17

The  breaking dawn  moves  through the trees

Snowflakes  do fly on chilling  breeze

It’s  time to bundle up  today

And  find a place  that’s warm to stay.

The winter winds  are brash and buff

And  all  made of  God’s icy stuff

The  season has  turned rough and cold

As  each day  chances  to grow old.

We  all need keep our  feet quite dry

If  we are hoping  to get by

Each  day does  bare it’s  hoary breath

Take  care,  none dare to challenge death !

 

MAKE A CHOICE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/16

The  heart gets worn and  tired too

As  through our  lives  we’ve much to do

When  shall we find  one day to spare

How  can we make  the time to care ?

We  know that  God is on our side

That’s  brought about  through love  not pride

Lord  help us please  to understand

Show  us our pleasure  second-hand.

Grant  us the power to  make our choice

To use  our heads,  our hearts,  our voice

How  wonderful that it would  be

To  share in God’s  posterity !

 

 

 

 

LITANY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/15

A  tiny bit of heaven grows

In  secret places no one knows

Sometimes  a corner near a hedge

Or closeby at the garden’s edge

Under  a pine tree  by the fence

With smell of violets intense.

Around  a tree stump you can see

Peat  moss plays host to wild daisy

The  dandelions tramp all about

While peonies  their color flout,

Oh  such a sight for all to see

And  witness as God’s litany !
