Too many dreams have gone astray

Or run aground along the way

Too many hopes have disappeared

In clouds of rising silent fear

Think positive in all you do

Your endless faith will see you through !

Tis Sunday morn a day of rest

Enjoy the day and dream your best

Pick up the pieces if you care

And be assured that He is there !

There’s a layer of frost upon the ground

A more glistening sight can ne’er be found

See how the light and the shadows collect

Mother Nature’s efforts, I do suspect.

There’s the feeling of snow now in the air

To promise us all it soon will be there

Oh for those days when the time used to be

We were all young and our freedom was free.

When life was a joy and so full of zest

Before we’d begun our own lifetime’s quest

As dew on the rose accompanied dawn

The birds begin singing come early morn.

God was right there when we opened our eyes

Depend upon Him, He offers the prize

For life without faith is no life at all

I’d rather be dust than miss His last call !

 

 

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 !

 

 

 

 

LIVE LONG TOO ( 2019 ) 2019/01/08

There is an oak outside my door

That stretches up ten stories more

There is no way that I can see

The sidewalk to the left of me.

This ancient tree is truly old

Devoid of nicks and is not bald

Her branches spread this way and that

She wears them like a giant hat .

And when it rains the ground is dry

Because her leaves are piled so high

Oft do I think, about those trees

That gently sway into the breeze

I’d like to know what I can do

To be that free and live long too !

 

 

 

 

I’LL VISIT AGAIN ( 2019 ) 2019/01/07

Well my dear, I saw an old friend today

With her soft pink skin and her hair of gray

Her eyes so clear framed by those gentle curls

She must have been the prettiest of girls.

As we sat there together I could see

That she struggled hard to remember me

She was a stranger that I knew so well

There’s no point to the oldtime tales retell.

I’m sorry that my dear friend has moved on

But I’ll visit again ere we’re both gone !

 

TO ROSA,  GOD BLESS !

I hear sweet music in the air

That’s offered up to God in prayer

It sounds so full of faith and awe

That is what hymnals are meant for.

We praise our Lord, call on His name

Help us remember why He came

Show us how to aid in His work

And help our neighbors, never shirk.

Let’s make this earth a better place

In which to raise the human race

Depend on Him, He’s always there

To ease our pain and wonders share !
