I’ve often thought how sad it is

To figure out what’s mine, what’s his

This world was not born yesterday

Nor will its strength fade fast away

But lingers long upon the mind

To seek the answer we need find.

Among those stars in distant sky

There bides a path that each must ply

And as the trail now waxes old

Before its impetus grows cold

Let’s bind our fears and make new friends

Learn how the final story ends !

My heart is torn, my values scorned

I’ve courage strong with hope reborn

Unsteady though it be,  I teach

Of this new world I hope to reach

What honors there that one may see

Without a  false humility ?

Point me the way to valor earn

Help me to find my great concern

Do as You will on heav’n and earth

Show me Lord how to use my worth !

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.

 

 

 

 

OUR BURDEN BEAR ( 2018 ) 2018/09/15

There is this part of me that cries

As tales of sadness doth arise

Or when someone has a great need

To find some peace or to succeed.

We’ll seek a measure to impart

Our loving help for ailing heart

Perhaps one moment to remind

Each other that we should be kind.

There are these special words we’ll keep

That as ye sow thus shall ye reap

Always remember He’ll be there

To help us each our burden bear !

My heart is heavy with the weight

That this world’s lost and in a state

Beyond its condemnation date

Perhaps, dear Lord it’s not too late !

The chance exists we may survive

And keep our hope and dreams alive

Your help and aid would earth revive

As mankind learns once more to thrive !

 

 

 

MAKE A CHOICE ( 2018 ) 2018/07/09

There is a choice that one must make

About the path that each shall take

And of the road that lies ahead

With twists and gaps and bumps instead.

Our trail through life is seldom smoothed

It’s crammed with ruts and slightly grooved

Where we who struggle on alone

Will stumble o’er both rock and stone.

Tis best remembering to swerve

When we approach curve uopn curve

This course we’ve taken is intense

But God’s our Help and our Defense !

 

FATHERS’ DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/17

To all the men we have adored

Our fathers, sons and blessed Lord

The uncles all who spared us space

And grandpapas that kissed each face

Who filled in for each missing dad

In every empty place we had.

This  family of kindly men

Who came to bat, again, again

And never once did let us down

Changing to laughter every frown

Whoever dreamt that we might find

Some other men to be this kind

Hard to accept as truth maybe

Love’s more than just paternity !
