My heart is in the heavens, knocking at His door

I pray that God will hear me as He did before

And when my life is done and I have been set free

I pray that He will find a corner just for me!

At times I find myself uptight

Caught in a terror of the night

I cannot rest or close my eyes

Recapturing sweet sleep’s reprise.

The angels have deserted me

My world is wrapt in apathy

There is no answer to be found

Help me to turn the mood around !

At times I find I’m in a bind

That life has been unfair, unkind

I’m hopeful as new days unwind

There is some justice left to find !

EXCUSE ME but I have just returned home from another one of my medical adventures which are becoming more frequent as time passes.  I am impelled to applaud many of the professionals who take their ER duty to the Nth degree !  There’s Danielle who daily travels from south Jersey to Hoboken regardless of traffic or weather.  Or Joy, who moves around helping the patients attached to varied drips or machines reach the facilities or get a food tray or liquids, or Ado as he endlessly smiles and tends the infirm.  And Frank who constantly manoeuvers the beds from one area to another during his shift, never making a sound !  When you have at last secured your bed space in the proper department, with the helping angels, nurses, aides like Marichelle, Maria, Michele, Kathy, Paolo and many others with their stream of endless care.  We even experienced a real fire emergency on the 2nd day ! There are myriads of other workers, laundry, cleaning, maintenance like Carmen or Billy on their toes and alert.  And the doctors, Simon, Orbelyan, Lim or  Krish on the floor moving from room to room.  There are nurse managers like IJ overseeing procedures and needs.  But my favorite is the Chaplain Marjorie who has words to bring peace to all, group prayer, sing-a-long hymns.  She is the soft spoken disciple of God who utters kind words of comfort and reason !  God bless all and thank you for being there !      Sincerely,      Claire B.

The fog creeps in so silently

It slowly rises from the sea

The air is still with ne’er a breeze

There is no rustle in the trees.

I feel a chill upon my skin

What kind of chaos are we in

I cannot see in front of me

When will our world be trouble free ?

 

GOD’S TRUE LOVE ( 2017 ) 2017/07/08

I wish I were a child again

Returning to remember when

Those days gone by that I recall

When I was young and oh so small.

I never questioned for one time

That I was in some unsafe clime

I wish that I could do the same

For all those children I can’t name

Who need to seek the safety of

A world chock full of God’s true love !

It seems to me we need employ

The safest way to display joy

On our great nation’s holiday

From all of us Happy Birthday !
