Well here we are, believing what

With all this detail we have got ?

There are too many who will say

There is no God, not here today.

 

I can’t recall who said it first

But I am sure their bubble’s burst.

Just look around what do you see

A world that needs God’s charity !

The wind, it whips around the bend

How long before the winter’s end

The snow, the sleet, the icy road

That soon becomes a heavy load

But when the elements do flee

The spring arrives to comfort me.

I’d like to greet another day

With fragrant blossoms on the way

There is a line I can’t ignore

I’ve heard so many times before

If winter comes, it’s true you’ll find

That spring is never far behind !

The simplest pleasures that I will miss

Are an unexpected sticky kiss,

Tiny fingers pulling at my hair

And  peek-a-boos meant for two to share.

There is so much joy small children bring

Into each day of just plain living

Their hopes and fears or their smiles and tears

Gifting our lives with surprise and cheers !

 

 

 

 

EVERYTHING ( 2017 ) 2017/12/07

There is a song lives in my heart

I don’t know how it got its start

But I adore its every word

The sweetest sounds I’ve ever heard.

It fills my mind and brings me peace

And from life’s sadness grants release

It raises hopes where none survived

And helps laughter to be revived.

How wonderful the Lord loves all

Who stand in line to wait His call

He is the Master and the King

Son of the God of everything !

 

 

I HATE WAR ( 2017 ) 2017/12/04

How I hate war, oh Lord, how I hate war

What is the point, what’s it intended for

Where is the end, tell me what shall we do

How can we comprehend life’s carry through ?

I see those faces that once were unlined

But now to agony are thus confined

I hear the rasping sound of raling breath

The gasping halt that’s prone to preface death

Be gone this hate, the anger too, I say

Please Lord we beg of You show us the way !

It does seem odd that you and I

Are simply strangers passing by

We’ve spent our days upon God’s earth

Testing our values and their worth.

We’ve come this far to validate

The things we love and some we hate

Our time is brief and waning fast

Tis now each move may be our last.

Oh Lord we’re grateful that You’ve heard

And need the courage of Your word !

Live each day as if it were your last

Reminisce about those lifetimes past

And feel the warmth of love’s gentle kiss

Do  not complain of the things you’ve missed.

Wish to all their impossible dream

Of unending love and joy supreme

Have trust in God follow in His way

Keep faith in your heart day after day !
