A  garden  is  that  special  place

Where hope and fear meet face to face

Where dreams are made or fall apart

And courage wins when tears depart.

An  island  in a  lifelong  storm

Where each must to their strength perform

A  place of peace  where God resides

And  answers  prayers and love  provides !

Oh little  birds you crowd my door

What is  it you  are waiting for

A bit of bread or  cracker crumbs

That from my kitchen table comes

Leftovers  from a  berry  tart

I meant for you right from the start ?

I want to  share my feast with you

The way most thoughtful persons do

The Lord above has taught us this

Some joys in life we must not miss.

Perhaps one  day when I am old

And all my senses have grown cold

You’ll sing to me your old time song

Reminding  me that I belonged !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AN EMPTY CHAIR ( 2019 ) 2019/06/14

Each time that I sit down to eat

I notice there’s an unfilled seat

It’s been like that for quite awhile

I don’t feel ready yet to smile.

I wish your laugh and wisdom’s word

Were still the pleasantries I’d heard

For times have changed, you’re gone away

I miss you more, day after day !

Who’d ever guess that I should be

Alone at last upon life’s sea,

I never thought that I would share

My dinners with an empty chair !

 

 

GOD’S OPEN DOOR ( 2019 ) 2019/06/13

The sun  comes  peeping o’er the hill

The day is white and  bright and still

Each  morn brings  us another day

Another chance to  thank  and pray.

How  wonderful God’s plan has been

Allowing  all  to  scurry in

We  don’t need any special gift

To help us  smile  or  spirits lift

He’s always there with open door

How can we  ask for any more ?

 

 

 

 

THE PROPER PATH ( 2019 ) 2019/06/11

Oh little lamb you are so sweet

God loves to smell your roasting meat

He’s rather fond of incense too

With scents of flowers red, pink, white, blue

And all the candles that we light

To chase  the darkness of the night.

How  simple  it can  be to show

The proper path  that we must go !

 

 

 

 

GROW WINGS AND FLY ( 2019 ) 2019/06/09

Oh how I wish that we may speak

If I were strong  and not so weak

And had a chance to beg the Lord

That we  might be of one accord

Thus sleep with God and bird, may I

Perhaps one day grow wings and fly ?

 

 

 

SEEKING COMFORT ( 2019 ) 2019/06/08

We love You Lord,  and  beg of You

Give each the strength to see life through,

This  dearth of help that now may be

The  darkest  night we’ll ever see,

Or longest  day we’ll ever know

As in our lives  will  sadness grow.

Because of You,  we’ve traveled  far

To reach the Comfort  that You are !

 

AMEN.
