Oh blessed Lord, accept my plea

Grant me the strength to set me free

Open my eyes that I may see

The love and care You’ve offered me.

I am Your servant meek and mild

Your aged and obedient child

I give to You all I possess

My dreams and hopes, my happiness !

I  am so glad  I can recall

The  bygone days  when I was small

I’d  sit upon  my nana’s  lap

All  snug and  warm in cozy wrap

And  get to  spend  much of my days

In  comfort  close under her gaze

For  all my life,  I’ll  never find

Another  who would  be so kind

Her  gentle ways  and crooked  smile

Made  early life  for me  worthwhile

Oh  for the  days when dreams  were new

And growing  up  seemed  over due

When  children’s  laughs were full of  glee

And  love was  still a  mystery.

The  Lord  Himself  is always there

He  heals  our wounds  and  hears our prayer

Bless  God for  all the  gifts  He gives

And  all  the sins which  He  forgives !

I know You Lord, You speak to me

With  every  measure  I can see

There from the treetops in the air

From rooftops, birds now perching there,

On  every branch in  every tree

Each bird sings his own song to me.

How beautiful  this  life does seem

With all God’s creatures in each scene !






THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER ( 2018 ) 2018/04/11

There is a tale through ages told

Of Midas and his touch of gold

But none compares with what we know

Happened to Jesus long ago.

There in a garden on a hill

On one dark night so sad and still

A troop of soldiers with their knives

Approached God’s twelve to seal their lives.

The battle raged among the few

The fighting fierce and overdue

Some ran away while others hid

It was the task Sanhedrin bid.

Two thousand years we’ve known the Word

Though truth is not all we have heard

The story thrives, it grows and grows

With fleeting time God’s blessing glows !

I’d like to believe that words live on

Long after both you and I have gone

I pray some of those words  we have said

May linger longer within our head

And beg God’s blessing will favor you

With  joy and hope and great passion true !


YULETIDE CHEERS ( 2017 ) 2017/06/06

How sweet it is to greet each day

To wake each morn in peace and pray,

We thank you Lord for one more chance

To fill our days with life’s romance.

Who can be sure which season’s best

The springtime is so full of zest

While summer grabs our fantasy

It’s packed with much frivolity.

The fall rocks with its sounds and song

Until brisk winter comes along

But most can’t wait till snow appears

When all are caught in Yuletide cheers !

The dawn has wakened with a grin

The sun’s warm rays beg “let me in”

Oh what a perfect start this is

The day is mine, the world is His !

A brand new day dawns bright and clear

What can there be for us to fear

As we are strong and know the truth

For  we have had the faith of Ruth.

“Whither thou goest, Naomi,”

Did save our faith and set us free

Who could have known so long ago

From these few words our blessings flow ?




DON’T COUNT ME OUT ( 2016 ) 2016/08/16

There is a place that I hold dear

A time I feel my God is near

In early morn when I arise

And daylight slowly fills the skies

Tis then my senses start to feel

And waken to a world that ‘s real.

Oh what a joy each day does bring

As blessings soon start happening

I close my eyes and say a prayer

And have no fear for God is there

While those around are full of doubt

I beg You Lord, don’t count me out !

The day is coming it’s almost here

Hold onto your hat, let out a cheer

Here comes the spring bearing a new year.

The sun is shining, we’re warming up

About to partake of springtime’s cup

Time to thank our Lord ere we do sup !

The rain that falls upon this place

The breeze that blows upon ones face

The leaves that flutter to the ground

The winds that rustle all around

The stars o’erhead that twinkle bright

The clouds that hustle day and night

The seas that play against the shore

The waves that feed the oceans roar

These things that keep our minds awake

Gods gifts that do our pleasures make !


BLESSINGS ( 2013 ) 2013/04/23


Oftimes when I am lying at my ease

Upon some chaise as quiet as you please

Along the sandy shore that comforts me

With warming winds beside the restless sea

I contemplate the peace that aging brings

While bearing wisdom on its learned wings.

Asleep beneath the stars and moon above

Under the spell of some enduring love

And there the beauty that I sought and knew

Still shimmered and spun the whole night through

While God Himself seemed to smile on us all

By spreading His blessings both large and small.
