Dear Lord, I’m glad that you are there

To hear my ever constant prayer

My mother told me long ago

That when I asked, take care to know

Because You answer each request

With what You deem to be the best

The answer will be “yes” or “no”,

“Wait for a little while or so”

“Or give us something else instead”

That covers everything she said !

 

AMEN !

 

 

 

 

HIS LAST CALL ( 2019 ) 2019/01/10

There’s a layer of frost upon the ground

A more glistening sight can ne’er be found

See how the light and the shadows collect

Mother Nature’s efforts, I do suspect.

There’s the feeling of snow now in the air

To promise us all it soon will be there

Oh for those days when the time used to be

We were all young and our freedom was free.

When life was a joy and so full of zest

Before we’d begun our own lifetime’s quest

As dew on the rose accompanied dawn

The birds begin singing come early morn.

God was right there when we opened our eyes

Depend upon Him, He offers the prize

For life without faith is no life at all

I’d rather be dust than miss His last call !

The willows in the wood reach the ground

Stretching their branches down all around

The stars in the sky shimmer and shine

With greetings they bring to yours and mine.

This year’s ending with no alarm

Leaving us with past wealth and old charm

Let’s look ahead to days that soon come

Sharing with others a bit and some

Forgiving all our errors and sins

How wonderful each New Year begins !

 

 

NOT READY FOR GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/15

I feel the chill that’s in the air

The trees outside are stark and bare

There’s ne’er a plant that shall survive

Too cold last night to stay alive.

When morning calls what will we see

God’s version of tenacity,

A world reviving from cold’s blast

Whose entity doth last and last.

Through warm or cold and wet or dry

God’s plans’ not ready for goodbye

So loosen up, get on the track

It’s time to take His wisdom back !

 

A SIMPLE GOODBYE ( 2018 ) 2018/11/05

Like all the dreams you’ve ever dreamed

And all the plans you ever planned

Like the currents in the river

And all the ridges in the sand

One whisk of mighty ocean wave

That does quite often go astray

Maybe a mighty blast of wind

Stalls, waiting to come out and play

Like all the fishes in the sea

And all the birds that fly up high

The simple clasping of a hand

Accepts it’s time to say goodbye !

 

ROSE OF SHARON ( 2018 ) 2018/05/20

A rose once in a garden grew

Nurtured by love and morning dew

Its flower so sweet beyond compare

Which God and all the angels shared

A beauty rare enough indeed

To comfort all who have the need.

The Rose of Sharon was the name

And from the fields that’s where He came

A beauty which reflects today

In all we know, in every way

The strength and wisdom that survives

It’s how we know God’s still alive !

 

WAKEUP ( 2018 ) 2018/03/07

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 !
