I’ve heard the stories told by men

Of events took place way back when

Catastrophes of world wide note

About which men of science wrote

Sagas of danger we have heard

Chock full of facts in every word.

They spin tales of this our Lord’s  earth

In detail and for all its worth

Assured that God creates it all

Through summer, winter, spring or fall

I find in this no mystery

Just part of His Divinity !




A PRAYER OR TWO ( 2018 ) 2018/01/18

The storms of winter blow wet and wild

Enough to threaten both man and child

With the fury of weather’s power

Enough to caution both day and hour.

God’s creatures must hide or run away

As these conditions seem here to stay

There appears to be little to do

But sit back and say a prayer or two !

The sky is grey, the weather’s drear

Last days of summertime are here

The air is heavy, full of scent

I wonder where the sunshine went ?

Let’s sing a song of sweet goodbye

Take a deep breath and heave a sigh

The day’s arrived to pack away

Those remnants of our yesterday

I cannot promise I’ll be here

To celebrate, same time next year !

Sometimes I find I cannot speak

My voice grows thin, my limbs are weak

The spirit wanes, my hope grows dim

All I can do is wait for Him !


BLESSING FLOWS ( 2017 ) 2017/05/20

There is this thought that life is sweet

That happiness makes all complete

That beauty pledges joy unbound

And wealth does penury confound.

However there’s much more to bliss

Than finance or sweet passion’s kiss

A heart that feels, a mind that knows

A God  from whom all blessing flows !



TAKE CAUTION ( 2016 ) 2016/10/05

At times life hangs upon a thread

Or teeters on a word unsaid

Tense moments caught before a scene

Or shouted words just too obscene,

Who knows what happens in a flash

Or what may cause a fatal crash ?

Tis smart to always take great care

Be conscious of what, when or where

For life comes with no guarantee

Take time to think, wait, watch and see !


RENDEZ-VOUS ( 2016 ) For my friend Alison 2016/09/22

There is a garden in the sky

I’m sure of that, I’ll tell you why

For heaven is His special place

That mystifies the human race.

Just picture all the pleasures there

God stores His treasures with great care

He tends to all His flocks with love

And grants us peace here and above.

I know that one day you and I

Will rendez-vous somewhere up high

For all I’ll ever want to do

Is hear you laugh and be with you !
