Oh how my love plays tricks on me

And gathers up my sympathy

My eyes are full of sweet surprise

With all the joy of each sunrise

Observe God’s will with constant heart

Stay true to values from the start

Believe in your own destiny

Keep faith alive and courage free

Always remember God is there

To save us whether foul or fair !

There  she is  our Lady Liberty

Symbol  of this  safe home of the  free

She’s  the  grandest of all  that we sight

There in the Harbor  each day and night.

She  spurs us on  to do greater things

Like  prayers we say  and hymns  we  sing

We’ll  join our hearts  and hands together

Through  pleasant days  or stormy weather.

Let’s  ask our  God  to protect us all

In  case old Satan  decides to call  !

When  I was small  and but  a child

I  spoke in manner  sweet and mild

Twas  not a time  of angry ways

For  kindness  dwelt  in all our days.

We  spared each other  any pain

Determined  to help  and explain

Our  words displayed  the constant grace

Of  honesty  while face to face.

How  clever that  our role should be

To  echo  God’s integrity

And  live with  honor  all our days

To  seek God’s  love and sing  His Praise  !

My  dearest child,  I miss your voice

I  know there is no other choice

In  times as these  we need be strong

To  caution’s  cause we must belong

Be  kind to those  who’ve  tried so hard

To  keep the faith  and walk  with God

Remember  always to be fair

That  of  God’s bounty  all may share

Please  grant us peace  day after day

Help  each to follow  in His way  !

 

AMEN.

I  am so glad  I can recall

The  bygone days  when I was small

I’d  sit upon  my nana’s  lap

All  snug and  warm in cozy wrap

And  get to  spend  much of my days

In  comfort  close under her gaze

For  all my life,  I’ll  never find

Another  who would  be so kind

Her  gentle ways  and crooked  smile

Made  early life  for me  worthwhile

 

 

PRECIOUS DAY ( 2020 ) 2020/02/20

Seems  today’s  life  has its ups  and downs

In  this world  that’s  full of  smiles and frowns

With  its portion of  both  laughs and tears

Enough  to last  us a  dozen  years.

Thus  we come and  go  and only find

The  path we have chosen  will unwind

So  we’ll take our  chances  come what may

And  praise our  Lord  for each precious day !

Lord  save us from  old Satan’s  might

And  guide us through each lonesome night

Protect  us as we wend our  way

From  morning’s light till end of day

Forsake  us not,  we do believe,

We’re  grateful  for gifts we receive.

Lord,  how much longer  must we wait

To  greet  You at God’s  Golden Gate ?
