In age one learns to appreciate

God’s sweet pleasures as they meet our gait,

What was, has faded into the past

Leaving remnants to soften the last.

As time alone fast winnows away

Visions return to lighten the day

Although the picture’s not always clear

Moments of clarity do appear.

God in His wisdom which we may share

Guarantees all the depth of His care !

You love me Lord, I’m sure of that

Without Your care my world is flat

For very long I was this child

Consumed by disposition mild,

I’d always been a fan robust

Where manners are thought of as must

And try so hard to save a place

Here in my heart for God’s sweet grace !

A glow of orange floods each room

To banish all life’s doom and gloom

The sun’s rays bouncing off the cots

If they are filled or they are not.

The morning stirs, the day begins

We cannot know who’ll lose, who wins,

The halls are quiet like a mouse

There are few sounds about the house.

I hear tip-toes along the hall

A squeaky wheel, a pregnant stall

The silence drowns my every thought

Too sad this spot where some are brought !

Oh Lamb of God, I come to Thee

The bastion of our liberty

I beg of You to set me free.

Untie my wings and let me fly

Into the reaches of the sky

Ere pride and love have passed me by !

WATCH MY BACK ( 2018 ) 2018/02/13

Sometimes the world seems quite enraged

While I am far from full engaged

With all the trappings we require

To feed our hearts smallest desire.

What’s happened to old fashioned ways

Like the joy of unfettered days

Help me please to stay on the track

I need some one to watch my back !

 

 

GOD’S LOVING CARE ( 2018 ) 2018/02/10

I’d like to think that freedom’s free

Available to all who see

This land of opportunity

I want to dream that freedom bides

Throughout this place and on all sides

Where tolerance and truth resides.

I must believe that faith is real

Not just an effort to conceal

Hypocrisy of what we feel

I need to trust God will be there

To see and hear our every prayer

And keep all in His loving care !

 

 

GREATER GOALS ( 2017 ) 2017/12/15

It takes a lot to be prepared

For tragedies our lives may share

As life at best is difficult

Depending on each small result.

Sometimes the luck is on our side

And we complete each task with pride

Though there are days of no avail

When good intents are bound to fail

Let’s hope  the latter are less few

We’ve greater goals left to pursue !
