I hear the bells on Christmas Day

Their old famiiar carols play

And pray the Lord will understand

That soon His birthday is at hand.

It matters not what day that is

For all our days are truly His

The steeple bells ring sweet and clear

To celebrate the Christchild’s here !

 

 

HEAR MY PLEA ( 2018 ) 2018/10/24

I hear the whisp’ring of the shadows now

Assuring me twill come aright somehow

I could not bear to see that handsome face

Placed in a box in some secluded place

Of all the things he truly could not be

Confined to earth’s morose eternity,

So God above, who hears a mother’s plea,

Be kind to him and keep him close to Thee !

AMEN.

This child I held close to my breast

Has left me now to be at rest

His life  of pain at last set free

Upon God’s unrelenting sea.

This was his battle for too long

He tried so hard, he was so strong

But here we are, this is the end

I’ll miss you son, my life, my friend.

I doubt if we shall meet again

Another time, but where or when,

There’s none to know or even learn

Truth is, no one has e’er returned !

Whatever I am, dear Lord, I know

I owe it to You, You’ve made it so

You are the stars and the skies they’re in

With clouds above at Your every whim.

The rainbows we glimpse with color bright

A moon o’erhead on the starlit night

You are the dreams we are waiting for

The hopes and wishes and plans galore

That do fill our hearts and minds with glee

And create Your world this sight to see.

The birds and trees, the flowers that bloom

Assorted odors filling each room

The snow and rain, the wind as it blew

All of our treasures are gifts from You !

 

OUT OF CHAOS, ORDER.  AMEN.

It seems that life is whizzing by

With days so fast they seem to fly

While times their passage makes us cry

That’s when we must all bid goodbye !

The pages of the calendar do fly

Like storm tossed leaves across a windy sky

Days of our lives now swiftly pass us by

Their hours, minutes all whispering goodbye !

 

TELL ME WHY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/02

Why should I wish that life’s a blast

When any hour could be its last

Why should I dream or try to share

When no one’s left to love or care ?

Why do I hope the time has come

When all our troubles are undone

Why am I sure we’ll all be fine

If we’d but follow God’s design ?
