It doesn’t matter what you say

But what you do with every day

What kind of pattern’s left behind

What is it that you seek to find ?

How many burdens can you lift

How do you use your earthly gift,

What kind of friendship do you share

What will you do to show you care ?

 

 

THE IMPURE ( 2019 ) 2019/06/22

My heart is full, it overflows

Clear from my fingers to my toes

Devoid of malice, free of fear

Anticipating one more year.

I think of Noah and his clan

For this is how our lives began

His holy cause for one and all

Because he answered his God’s call.

I sometimes think we’ve lost our way

With Satan’s help from angels stray

Truth is that I cannot be sure

Who does embrace all these impure !

The world outside is dark and grim

I beg You Lord, please let me in

It matters not what I shall eat

Or whom it  is that I may meet.

Tis only in the shadow of

Your all consuming constant love

That all my hopes and dreams can be

Some part of life’s reality

I promise now that I will do

What e’er You wish that pleases You !

 

AMEN.

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 !

 

HEART IN HAND ( 2017 ) 2017/01/04

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 !

 

 

 

MORAL COMPASS ( 2016 ) 2016/03/21

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 !

 

THE WATCHMAN ( 2016 ) 2016/01/27

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 ?
