I love you Mom, you’ll always be

My whole life through, a part of me.

All that I know and learned from you

Those lessons taught honest and true,

A kindly heart and pleasant way

The smile that starts and ends each day

A will to speak with joy and ease

The need to help, an aim to please.

These are the rules you set in place

I promise you, I will embrace !

 

 

 

 

THE FIRST STONE ( 2017 ) 2017/06/21

Now I have trudged this rocky path

With angry crowds so full of wrath

I really don’t know what to think

Seems sanity is on the brink

There’s not much left to make great sense

The climate has become intense.

Participants are so inclined

Pretending to be dumb and blind

But stop before one does the deed

The rule in hand all must concede

The Lord demands that he alone

Who sinless be, cast the first stone !

I’m told  that justice is quite blind

In all the truths that man does find

She is the judge who may deceive

But yet the one most will believe !

How sad that she must blinded be

Throughout the world’s vast infamy

Unfaithful to her name indeed

And traitor to her precious creed !

With all the nonsense we do see

We’re so thankful for our country

We have so much just look around

It is the finest to be found.

One nation of the brave and free

A bastion of our liberty

Which many now scheme to destroy

Whatever methods they’ll employ.

In truth our God is always there

To answer our unending prayer

And keep us safe no matter what

We pledge our lives and all we’ve got !

 

 

 

GET IT STRAIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/02/09

There is a joy that giving brings

Among all life’s vast happenings

Love of family and of faith

The need for God to keep us safe

In hope that we may overcome

The evil we’re escaping from.

The sense to know that God is there

To hear our every hope and prayer

Perhaps this time we’ll get it straight

And all wind up at Heaven’s Gate !

 

 

IT’S TIME ( 2017 ) 2017/02/07

I often think no matter what

That I will give all that I’ve got

And pray that I’m much better than

Some mediocre protest plan !

I’ll stand up for the land I love

Her people that I am proud of

Her flag and constitution too

The honor of red, white and blue

I sure hope most will join with me

To fight to keep our liberty !

EXCUSE ME but that’s my song they’re playing !  This morning at 5:58 AM, I was astounded by a tasteful display of the Star Spangled Banner, a beautiful panorama of Martin Luther King Jr., a montage of war memorials in D.C. and a moment of silence.  All of this on Fox Cable Network News TV as they commenced morning broadcasting.  I almost jolted out of bed however people my age never jolt anywhere at anytime !  I sat, I rose, I appreciated !  Well now here am I sharing this experience with my world at large, no basket over this light !  It’s like a reveille call.  I do not know if it qualifies, but I’m going to enjoy this show and thank the new incoming administration for reviving our waning patriotism !  Perhaps there is the hope that it is catching.  That would be heartening, thank you !  I already feel 10 pounds lighter, how about you ?     Sincerely,         Claire B.
