Oh precious Lamb, You are so sweet

This world is kneeling at Your feet

You are the world’s bright shining Star

All that we hope and dream You are.

The times we knew are fading fast

Have we the stamina to last,

What must we do to prove to You,

Praise God and honor all You do !

A  little  bird there on the  wing

His pretty song did choose to sing

The notes did  travel on  the air

To lend the  hour a special  flair,

Oh  how I  wish  that  I could  be

So like  that bird,  joyous and free !

 

 

NO GUARANTEES ( 2019 ) 2019/09/06

There  are no  guarantees in life

For mother,  child,  husband  or wife,

We all  have travelled  on life’s road

Unburdened  or with heavy load

There is no  crowd to cheer us on

No magic  words to lean upon

No tragic curse that  we’re aware

Or law that says  what must be fair.

We understand that on each path

There can be times of  doubt or wrath

Yet often  seems so  very sweet

When hope and joy  with love compete

I do not  know  the  why of it

And pray  most times that we shall fit !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EVERY TURN ( 2019 ) 2019/09/02

Shimmering  stars are seen at night

Displaying  all their  brilliant light

Creating highways  in the sky

On  which explorers do  rely.

I wish  that we on earth  could know

The  magic that God’s sky does show

Of  life as is and  how we learn

To  choose our  path at every turn !

 

 

COME WHAT MAY ( 2019 ) 2019/08/10

Whatever war that has been fought

Tis one more lesson to be taught

For no one wins as each has lost

And every war does have great cost.

Sometimes it takes a lifetime long

To hear the ring of freedom’s song

There is a price that all must pay

To win the battle of the day.

Therefore when lives do meet their end

And each has chosen foe and friend

The choice one makes on that last day

Will stand forever,  come what may !

 

 

PROXIMITY ( 2019 ) 2019/05/23

I often think the Lord is there

In every garden that we share

With odors that o’ercome the air

And seize upon our senses rare.

A garden is this magic place

In which God lends to us the grace

That brings a smile to each one’s face

Engulfing us in His embrace.

I wish that I could always be

Involved with such an entity

Like plant or flower, vine and tree

Within our Lord’s proximity !

 

 

 

HIS WORLD DECOR ( 2019 ) 2019/04/26

Red, fuscia, purple, lime and green

These are the colors to be seen

With yellow, orange, pink, white, blue

To celebrate the springlike view,

Around the corners, every shade

And tint of green the Lord has made.

A myriad of colors bright

To lighten up each local sight

How did the Lord know long before

The beauty of His world decor ?

We thank You, Lord, for this Your gift

You sure know how to spirits lift !
