On a lonely road in an empty place

When the bugle calls and a trumpet plays

And the wild wind blows o’er deserted plain

It stirs an old heart to revive again !

This earth is full of mirth and joy

That visits every girl and boy

Who’ve known about the treasures of

Our Lord’s unfettered vows of love.

We are His children who’ve been taught

To follow in the path He’s wrought

He won’t desert or leave us cold

We are included in His fold !

 

 

 

SIMPLE PLEASURE ( 2017 ) 2017/12/09

The simplest pleasures that I will miss

Are an unexpected sticky kiss,

Tiny fingers pulling at my hair

And  peek-a-boos meant for two to share.

There is so much joy small children bring

Into each day of just plain living

Their hopes and fears or their smiles and tears

Gifting our lives with surprise and cheers !

A little love, a little care

A smile or two for all to share

A kindly word, a firm handshake

A promise that we’ll not forsake

An open heart with willing hands

To aid our friends in foreign lands,

Respect for freedom’s rule of law

With truth for all forever more !

Hooray, hooray,  I’m home today

This time let’s pray I’m here to stay

The road is long, the hill is steep

And I’ve a rendez-vous to keep.

I’m old and worn on my last leg,

Far too tired to try to beg

I’ve kept my eye upon the ball

Waiting to hear His final call.

The day is here, it’s on its way

But time and place no one can say

I thank you Lord for being there

Reminding me how much You care !

 

 

 

 

GO BACK AGAIN ( 2017 ) 2017/06/30

We found our faith, both strong and mild

When most believed in the Christ Child

We sang His hymns and spread His prayer

Because we knew that He was there

Life seemed to be quite simple then

I wish we could go back again !

 

 

 

TENDERFOOT WINGS ( 2017 ) 2017/03/30

Seems the Lord we love has made it clear

There’s no just cause left for us to fear

We must follow His law and believe

In all the blessings we may receive.

The commandments were written in stone

By His finger for Moses alone

And this is what we’ve been meant to learn

Before our tenderfoot wings are earned !
