Let’s thank the Lord for many things

Like sun and rain and April springs

Including all the birds that sing

And trees that host most everything,

The fields and valleys lush with life

Trails cut through forests like a knife

A night time sky that glows so bright

With stars and comets in their flight,

We thank You Lord for all these things

And all the joy Your loving brings !

Can you hear the tumult of the wind

It whines aloud  that it be let in

The shutters tremble, the shingles roar

Can you feel the rattlng of the door ?

The mighty wind blows so fierce and loud

Where it gets caught bullying each cloud

Why won’t it move in a calmer way

And save its power for another day ?

I’m peering through a veil of white

That is this early morning’s sight

Watching the snowflakes filter down

In pirouettes close to the ground

They flutter, dance and swirl about

Their silent beauty spinning out !

What is it that I see out there

All those rough cracks in earth so bare,

They seem to spread across the ground

New fresh roots waiting to be found.

There is this light green piercing through

Can it be that springtime is due,

What is it we are noticing

Why, first sign of an early spring !

 

 

 

SHARE SUN AND MOON ( 2017 ) 2017/02/03

I have traveled over mountains where the missionaries trod

As they brought to all the natives many messages from God

I have crossed the mighty rivers where they struggled for their lives

To ford the very waters in which the power of God survives

I have listened to the wind as it has played its mournful tune

And I thank the distant stars that we each share the sun and moon !

The wind it whistles round the bend

And seems to whine “I’m here again”

It travels on to conquer more

With hoary breath and gusty roar

Oh, hear the sound and noisy shout

I sure get tired of striking out !

The frothy foam that caps the waves

And dredges sand from seashell graves

That long have hidden from our sight

Choose now to face the morn’s veiled light.

The ocean creatures deeper go

Escaping nature’s undertow

While seagulls frantic overhead

Search for a perch that’s safe instead !

Both you and I must reach for breath

As all the air seems sucked to death

The wind whips round with heightened speed

Oh grant us Lord, the strength we need !
