May  the gift of  giving be with us  each year

As  the sounds of Christmas  fall  upon our ear

May  the joy of  loving bring  each one  great cheer

While  true  faith in God  diminishes our  fear  !

I  stand by God  and all He means

He fills my heart  and all my  dreams

He  is  my Hero over all

I  answer  ever to  His call

It  matters not  where I shall go

For  I am  His till  end times show !

I’m sure there is so  much to say

To help us  all save  every day

With  plans in place to find a way

To thank the Lord without  delay !

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 !

 

 

 

 

SATAN’S MOB ( 2019 ) 2019/04/30

There is this silence that I hear

It rests so peaceful on my ear

My heart is quiet, all’s at rest

I find this part of day the best

The streets’ deserted, all is calm

Please welcome in the morning’s charm.

Another day, another chance

To perhaps take a second glance

Discover what the world needs now

Let’s do some good, some way, somehow

For if we don’t, who’ll fill the job

Some volunteer from Satan’s mob ?

 

 

 

 

 

THE JOY OF LOVE ( 2019 ) 2019/01/09

There is a joy that loving brings

With laughter and a smile that sings

A twinkle that does cause the eyes

To shine and light the darkest skies.

Keep positive in all you do

Remember lessons taught to you

Thank God each day for every gift

Beg Him to all your spirits lift

Take care you are divorced from spite

Continue prayers both day and night !

 

 

 

 

A GIFT FOR YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/11/22

Oh Lord, dear God, let not my weakness show

Oh Lord above, help all my strengths to grow

I’ve been Your servant for most of my life

Through pain and sorrow, abundance of strife.

You’ve taught me how to be humble and fair

To give all I’ve got and something to spare

The words in my mouth and deeds that I do

All of this my Lord, is a gift for You !

 

 

 

GOD’S ENTITY ( 2018 ) 2018/09/14

I see the rain now tumbling down

Like teardrops rushing to the ground

The Power it accompanies

Is Parent to all plants and trees.

How splendid is the light He brings

To all of this world’s living things

For even mountains rise with time

While valley levels will decline,

How wonderful it is to be

Creations of God’s Entity !

In memory of

All those we loved

Who died that day

So far away

When after all

We still recall

The price they paid

For bringing aid

And peace to those

Who never chose

To start this war

Whatever for !

 

MOST GRATEFULLY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/02

Oh how I wish that there might be

An angel watching over me

To keep my life safe from great harm

Or when I err, sound an alarm.

Perhaps an angel on standby

To comfort me if I should cry

Or if the night is extra bold,

Warm hands to shield me from the cold.

Perchance if I wish hard enough

The path ahead won’t be so rough,

Whatever help God offers me

I shall accept most gratefully !

 

 

I’M NINE ( 2017 ) 2017/10/07

Each day I wake, I thank the Lord

Because I find I’m still onboard

I’m not too sure if that’s a gift,

Until life’s haze begins to lift

I check to see if I’m all there

My fingers, toes, my face and hair

Both arms and legs are working fine

On a ten scale, I’d guess I’m nine !

 

 

GREEN GODDESS ( 2017 ) 2017/03/11

When I look out and see her there

Our Liberty with greenish hair

So grand and strong reminding me

We have remained land of the free

Far longer than two hundred years

Amidst hurrahs and raucous cheers.

 

But now we are put to the test

To do what we know to be best

Thus save our nation from distress

And for the rest our foes impress

Our job’s ongoing, working hard

Protect ourselves and thank our God !

 

SPECIAL FORCE ( 2016 ) 2017/01/20

Oh what a place this nation is

Full of vim, vigor, pep and whiz,

Like bottles of rare bubbly wine

From grapes of joy grown on the vine

Transformed to champagne in our lives

Granting all goodness that revives

Ask that one Special Force  above

To bless us with unending love !

 

 

THE LOSS ( 2016 ) 2016/06/11

I love You Lord, I know You see

That I have placed my faith in Thee

Though time has passed I feel the loss

And why You suffered on that cross !

I thank you Lord for all you’ve done

Not just for me but everyone

I’m grateful for Your help and care

And glad that You are always there.

I know You are the keeper of

My heart and mind from up above,

That all I have You’ve given me

And all I am belongs to Thee

 

 

 

EASTER SURPRISE ( 2016 ) 2016/03/22

The day is coming it’s almost here

Hold onto your hat, let out a cheer

Here comes the spring bearing a new year.

The sun is shining, we’re warming up

About to partake of springtime’s cup

Time to thank our Lord ere we do sup !

 

PLEASE GET ME THERE ( 2015 ) 2015/10/17

The air is brisk, the day commences

And energizes all my senses

Another chance with true hope in store

To reach the goal that I’m striving for.

I sure could use the Lord’s help and care,

If He doesn’t mind, to get me there !

 

I’M GRATEFUL ( 2015 ) 2015/10/08

I am a child of God, I am

Through all my years, He’s held my hand

I’ve treasured life, not all of it

Times were I searched through bit by bit.

There’s still much that I need to fix

The good, the bad and nature’s mix

I speak to Him, I’m sure He’s there

I’ve leaned on Him and sought His care.

One thought that must each life enhance

Be grateful for that second chance !

 

HEAVEN’S GATE ( 2015 ) 2015/07/16

Tags: , , , ,

I envy not your lives to come

Now that my own is almost done

I would not walk this way again

To feel the loss or hide the pain.

I thank our Lord my time has passed

I know not how my heart did last

And move to that which is beyond

Without a will to carry on.

Somewhere within this universe

Bide powers that are too perverse

They creep and crawl and lie in wait

To bar our way through heaven’s gate !

 

TOO GRAND ( 2015 ) 2015/05/27

Bright skies of blue with clouds of white

God’s perfect picture of delight

From azure blue to deep sea green

Painted waters lie in between

While flocks of birds fly overhead,

With sheer emotion left unsaid

True this must be a gift received

That’s far too grand to be believed

 

ONE BIG KISS ( 2015 ) 2015/01/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 1:09 am
Tags: , , ,

The raindrops trickle down the pane

Small rivulets of falling rain

They gather on the window sill

And tremble with a magic trill.

The song they sing is pitter-pat

Sometimes it’s sharp and sometimes flat

It flutters like a fairy’s wings

And to my heart a love song sings.

I’d like to know who thought of this

And give Him one enormous kiss!

 

IN ACCORD ( 2014 ) 2014/12/13

I dare not teach you how to live

Or how much of yourself to give

I only know what I’ve been taught

That self respect cannot be bought.

To feel so good and love the Lord

To follow Him with one accord

Accept that He is always near

I’m not afraid for He is here !

 

DEFENSE ( 2014 ) 2014/11/19

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:24 am
Tags: , ,

The demons that we cannot see

They’re our immortal enemy

They own the stage it is their act

I wish we’d get our mojo back !

But we must walk on tippy-toes

Because these devils are our foes

They’re bound to keep us on the fence

God is our help and true defense !

 

SIMPLE JOYS ( 2014 ) 2014/11/08

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 8:44 am

I try to keep myself quite occupied

And free from traits of vanity and pride

Preferring to embrace those simple joys

Of loving kindness, happiness and poise !

For in my life this is what I have found

Tis best to keep one’s feet upon the ground

Forsake the envy hiding in each heart

And grateful thank the Lord for His new start !

 

 

THE ARK ( 2014 ) 2014/07/27

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 9:56 am

Old Noah was an honest man

Who followed God’s exact command

It made no sense to build that boat

No one was sure if it would float !

Then after all those tedious years

Rife with derision, jokes and jeers

The day arrived to pack the space

With creatures from just everyplace !

Now if you thought the ark a chore

To fill it would take so much more

Corralling that exotic strife

Would be the effort of his life !

But Noah’s band stuck to their gun

They needed food for everyone,

Almost five thousand years ago

As Genesis has told us so,

His years nine-hundred-fifty were

Thank God for him, our forefather !

 

 

AN AMERICAN ( 2014 ) 2014/07/06

A lifetime promise I shall keep

To speak with God before I sleep

This vow I took when I was small

The reason now I don’t recall !

It had to do with truth and lies

Seeming foolish and being wise

I can’t be false while pledging true

I’m partial to red, white and blue !

About me here I spy the face

Of many that have earned disgrace

They have small faith in who we are

And won’t enhance our rising star !

 

 

SUNDAY MORN ( 2014 ) 2014/04/20

Good morning sun we meet again

One feels your warmth upon the pane

We hear the sounds of creatures small

As one by one they coo and call.

How strange it is to wake this way

And greet the world at start of day

With little thought upon the mind

About the futures we may find.

Tomorrow can be time suffice

To do the work and pay the price

Today’s the day to take awhile

And thank the Lord with one huge smile !

 

HANDLE WITH CARE ( 2014 ) 2014/02/13

Filed under: POEMS.....THOUGHTS.....MEMORIES — bogdanosclaire @ 5:19 pm
Tags: , , ,

Life has taught me so many things

To walk with God and sup with kings

To speak with angels and the saints

Enjoy the pictures nature paints,

To love myself and show respect

To souls who suffer from neglect,

To treasure peace and do my part

To heal lifes pain and ease the heart.

This precious gift I wish to share

Bears this label, “handle with care”

I pray I will not fail this cause

God help me please to tame my flaws !
