The  heart gets worn and  tired too

As  through our  lives  we’ve much to do

When  shall we find  one day to spare

How  can we make  the time to care ?

We  know that  God is on our side

That’s  brought about  through love  not pride

Lord  help us please  to understand

Show  us our pleasure  second-hand.

Grant  us the power to  make our choice

To use  our heads,  our hearts,  our voice

How  wonderful that it would  be

To  share in God’s  posterity !

The  earth is full of  rocks and stones

Of  valleys,  caves,   forgotten bones

The  lakes, the oceans  that  astound

Hillsides  and mountains  all around.

The  wind,  the surf,  the morning  breeze

That  ripples  cross  rivers and seas

This  paradise  of God’s  invent

Are  visions of His heaven sent !

 

 

 

 

 

SAFE PLACE ( 2020 ) 2020/01/07

My  words are so piled up inside

I  cannot find  a place to hide

Sometimes  I think  I will explode

If  I should drop this  heavy load.

But  who am I to judgement  make

About  what will or will  not break

How’d  I manage to live  so long

Without  the lyrics of  the song ?

This  God  I love does  understand

And  led me thus far by the hand

He’s  taught me all the rules  I know

My  true Rock and Safe  Place to go !

 

 

SECOND HAND ( 2020 ) 2020/01/06

This  heart of mine could use a rest

It’s  tired of being second best

No  matter what I say or do

The  verdict is it’s up to you.

I’d  like to  believe  life is fair

And second chances are not rare

But  you and I,  we live with facts

We’ve done the job,  performed the acts.

Too sad to think ’twas not enough

To keep one’s head when going’s rough

Throughout  my life  I tried  so hard

To  keep my actions  close to God !

 

 

 

FACE OUR FEARS ( 2020 ) 2020/01/05

The  days keep folding  into night

Obscuring  everything in  sight

Each  dawn awaits  the fading dark

Like  spring anticipates  the lark

For winter  comes but once  the year

To  bring us all its  Christmas  cheer

Lets  face our fears  and try to fly

On wings of hope  ere we shall die  !

 

GOD’S VARIETY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/29

The  pages of my date book fly

Reminding  me life’s  passing by

Day dawns  and rushes off I  know

While  I am not  quite set to go.

Oh  how I wish that  I could be

A  child once more beguiled  and free

Who  loves all God’s  variety

And every gift He  offers me !

The cattle low, the rooster crows

Tis quite early in the morning

The trees will bend, the wind it blows

Another day soon is dawning.

The squirrels hustle in the trees

Their booty they are defending

While pigeons roosting mongst the leaves

All their messages are sending !
