UNFLINCHING LOVE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/31

When  I was young and full of vim

That  was the time  I first knew Him

It  changed my life  that  very day

For  I began to walk  His way.

How  simple it was,  I did find

As  He brought me  such peace of mind

A  strength  I gathered from above

And  power of  His unflinching love !

 

 

WALK GOD’S WAY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/30

Oh  blessed Lord,  I am so sad that I

One  day will soon be forced  to bid goodbye

And  so to leave here with one fond farewell

Hence to the world our sad,  sad story tell.

While  all the dreams  one dares to dream are due

We’re  not without the help and  care from You

We  beg of You to trust each in this way

Thus  join our hands and walk  God’s path today !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HIS WILL ( 2020 ) 2020/01/29

The times  are come,  the words  are said

The  hope for peace  too soon is dead

The  evil that controls  this earth

Is  fighting now  for all it’s worth.

The  life we know  from birth to grave

A  gift  from God,  our souls to save

He  does not fail,  not ever still

For  in the end,  all do His will  !

Oh  little  Lamb,  I suffer so

Please  tell me when it’s time to go

What  I have done my whole  life through

I  pray has been enough  for you.

Remember  me aft I am gone

And know  that You  have been  the One

Who’s  kept me on  Your righteous path

And  brought me all the love I hath !

 

 

HIS POWER ( 2020 ) 2020/01/27

The  world  we’ve  known waits outside  the door

Where  it may be what  we’re  praying for

A  kindly  word or  a tender  heart

To  grace  the day with a healthy start.

Outside  the door  where true life exists

Common  sense should  forever persist

For  each needs  the strength to  carry on,

Passion  to follow when hope is gone,

Then  reach for the sky  to touch a cloud

Praising  the Lord and  his power aloud !

 

 

 

 

TO SHARE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/26

Let’s  raise our hopes for time  to come

And  praise the Lord  for all  He’s done

Thank  God above for  all His  care

And  willingness  for us  to share.

I’d  like to think  that God  is near

To  stifle  every  single  fear

And  keep us all upon our  toes

Doing the best  that each one  knows !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

RELEASE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/25

I  hear the words  ringing in my ear

So  soft and sweet and quite  full of cheer

A  great big smile  and a happy face

One  heart  full of love  none may  erase

God  bless us all and bring  each one peace

And  from life’s  burdens  help  grant release

We  need  assistance to keep us free

Please  lead us dear Lord  to  liberty !

 

 

RELY ON GOD ( 2020 ) 2020/01/24

Sometimes  the ones we love the best

Are  those who put us to the  test

They  try our  patience or our  purse

We’re  never sure  which is the worst.

We  carry on  with fingers crossed

And  pray our purpose won’t  be lost

No  matter how hard it all seems

Rely  on God to save our dreams !

 

END TIME GOALS ( 2020 ) 2020/01/23

We do not know through all these years

A time so full of angst and fears

Is this the war from days of old

That ages have this story told

The one the prophets have declared

For which we now must be prepared.

Whomever dreamt that we would be

Faced by this great calamity,

May God have mercy on our souls

Help us secure our end time goals !

Oh,  for the days that  were and  are no more

And  those paths  that lead us to heaven’s  door

May  God be there  to greet each  as we come

With  an open heart  and the word welcome !

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 !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HARMONY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/14

Trust  is the factor we each need

If  we’re  expecting to succeed

As  it’s required  to understand

We  clasp our hands  across the land

For we  can’t  work together if

Between  us still exists some  rift

Let’s  try once more,  learn to agree

Achieving  perfect  harmony !

 

 

IT’S MAGIC ( 2020 ) 2020/01/13

The  earth is full of  rocks and stones

Of  valleys,  caves,   forgotten bones

The  lakes, the oceans  that  astound

Hillsides  and mountains  all around.

The  wind,  the surf,  the morning  breeze

That  ripples  cross  rivers and seas

This  paradise  of God’s  invent

Are  visions of His heaven sent !

 

 

 

 

 

ITS COST ( 2020 ) 2020/01/12

How  many mountains  have I climbed

When  life was young and  so inclined

There  were such hopes  those years did hold

Excitement  strong and  action bold.

The  times have shown  all that has changed

As  deeds have  consequence long-ranged

A  lesson learned  must not be lost

Each  chance we take  does have its cost !

 

ASPIRATIONS ( 2020 ) 2020/01/11

Now  I’ve loved God  my whole life through

Without  my faith what  would I do ?

The  sum of all the good  one does

And   past visions of what once was

Are  the reasons to  carry on

When  it appears  all hope is gone

Let’s  take a chance  with  one last try

Before time  fades into  goodbye !

 

WITH CHARITY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/10

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 7:27 am

This  silence that I  share is free

It  spreads its veil of  peace o’er me

And  quiets all  the disarray

That  one encounters day by day.

How  little do we know  of life

That  is content  and without strife

Contentment  is a foreign  thing

That  in our lives  has been missing.

Oh  Lord above do hear  this plea

Help  each to live with  charity !

 

 

 

 

BUNDLED UP ( 2020 ) 2020/01/09

Here  I am bundled  up to the chin

While  the north wind  struggles to slip in

The  air is so cold,  it feels  like ice

Thank  God my boots  are so warm and nice.

I’m  not too fond  of old winter’s  chill

And  admit  it brings me  little thrill

I  pray we’ll  make it  straight  through to  spring

When  the world  around begins  to sing

And  all of life  does  rebirth anew

With  both  heart and soul  and  voices too

Let  us take  our  joy  where e’er  we may

And  live to  complain  another day !

 

 

SANCTITY ( 2020 ) 2020/01/08

Millions  of dreams have  gone astray

Because  of wars we  fight each day

When  does  it end,  shall we survive

What  must we do  to keep alive ?

So  many  innocents to  save

By  heroes who have  filled each grave

And  what of all  the families

Left  behind with  but memories ?

Of  fathers,  sons and daughters  too

Who  gave themselves  in lieu of you

Bless  them all  and promise to be

Defenders  of their  sanctity !

 

 

SAFE PLACE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/07

My  words are so piled up inside

I  cannot find  a place to hide

Sometimes  I think  I will explode

If  I should drop this  heavy load.

But  who am I to judgement  make

About  what will or will  not break

How’d  I manage to live  so long

Without  the lyrics of  the song ?

This  God  I love does  understand

And  led me thus far by the hand

He’s  taught me all the rules  I know

My  true Rock and Safe  Place to go !

 

 

SECOND HAND ( 2020 ) 2020/01/06

This  heart of mine could use a rest

It’s  tired of being second best

No  matter what I say or do

The  verdict is it’s up to you.

I’d  like to  believe  life is fair

And second chances are not rare

But  you and I,  we live with facts

We’ve done the job,  performed the acts.

Too sad to think ’twas not enough

To keep one’s head when going’s rough

Throughout  my life  I tried  so hard

To  keep my actions  close to God !

 

 

 

FACE OUR FEARS ( 2020 ) 2020/01/05

The  days keep folding  into night

Obscuring  everything in  sight

Each  dawn awaits  the fading dark

Like  spring anticipates  the lark

For winter  comes but once  the year

To  bring us all its  Christmas  cheer

Lets  face our fears  and try to fly

On wings of hope  ere we shall die  !

 

EARN HIS TRUST ( 2020 ) 2020/01/04

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 12:10 am

Turn  on the lights,  the dark is here

It  is that dismal  time of year

After  the harvest  and the fall

Winter  becomes  the king of all.

Since  we are captive  to its power

Day  after day,  and hour by hour

To  learn the lesson  is a must

If  we are e’er  to earn His trust  !
