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 !

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 !
