The thoughts that gather round my brain

I struggle hard to keep contained

Because I wish to use the best

To help me try to ace God’s test.

I see how this world writhes in pain

Without some effort, there’s no gain

If God inspires our every act

Perhaps we’ll learn to honor fact !

Oh how I wish that we could be

Like children once again born free

Beginning with good habits taught

And acts of kindness as we ought.

Let’s use our time to good deeds do

And mend our lives with loving glue

Teach able friends to heal the land

Love one another heart in hand !

I’ve tarried long on this troubled road

And carried much of it’s heavy load

I’ve pushed and pulled and shoved far too hard

And buried my dreams in God’s backyard.

But dreams are not what it’s all about

It’s the values we share without doubt

And the courage it takes to do right

Even when deeds are beyond all sight !

This lonely vigil we need keep

Ere we shall find eternal sleep,

God’s watchman waits for deeds to show

In which direction we each go.

And who is he, this chosen guard

Who watches those who’ve worked so hard

To reach the goal God has in mind

That we perchance may heaven find ?

I’ve often thought that people care

Too much about the clothes they wear

And worry over foolish things

Like perfume, body art and rings

While others take great time to choose

Whose signature is on their shoes.

Now when it comes to pick a car

Some folks take things a bit too far

A car’s a chassis on four wheels

In custom color that appeals

It takes us where we want to go

And really must not steal the show.

Tis better far that we agree

The gifts of God to all are free

It matters not how we are clad

But if our hearts are just and glad

To know at last each choice we make

Will please our God is no mistake !


WHEN E’ER HE ASKS ( 2015 ) 2015/06/09

Sometimes my heart seems to skip a beat

My throat goes tight, unsteady my feet

Searching for reasons what shall I find

Do deeds from the past enthrall my mind ?

Did I waste my time with selfish fun

Do I feel guilt for whatever’s been done,

Is there a rule I’ve refused to heed

Have I failed to help someone in need ?

Perhaps tis now time to readjust

Try to keep smiling, learn how to trust

Think happy thoughts, get on with God’s tasks

Be ready to help when e’er He asks !

I never cease to be amazed

By all the heroes we have raised

Both men and women young and old

The weak, the strong, the meek, the bold.

They come in every color known

And range from small to overgrown

What makes a hero who can say

But they were there to save the day.

They risked their lives to do a deed

To help another in dire need

God loves us all, good, bad or worst

Let’s hope our heroes will rank first !
