FIND SOME HAPPY END ( 2019 ) 2019/02/02

Have we remembered to say “Thank You”

For all of the kindness that You do

And for the blessings that we receive

Like words of wisdom which we believe.

At times this old world is harsh and crude

And by action, arrogant and rude

Somehow folks assume they make the rules

While the balance of us are all fools.

How sad to think that this is the way

That most of our world reacts today

Let us pray that God does comprehend

And helps us to find some happy end !

When is the moment we shall know

Our race is run it’s time to go

How can we learn if we are done

Seems we have barely just begun ?

Perhaps tis best to trust our fate

No matter what, it’s not too late

Our faith in God is not misplaced

We live within His world and space

Let’s trust in God and thank Him still

He is our Purpose and our Will !

The morning mist has melted away

Seems God’s sun has decided to stay

Looks like we’re in for a blessed day

With time to enjoy, give thanks and pray !

To all my friends and those I love

I don’t know what we’re thinking of

But I am guessing holidays

With thanks to God whom we all praise

For all the joys the season brings

And all the songs the angels sing !

To all my friends across the miles

You must believe my dearest wish

To one day see all of your smiles

And possibly to share a kiss.

Now since that act can never be

Perhaps you all may grant me this

Accept the thanks from me to thee

Please know you fill my life with bliss !

The day is coming it’s almost here

Hold onto your hat, let out a cheer

Here comes the spring bearing a new year.

The sun is shining, we’re warming up

About to partake of springtime’s cup

Time to thank our Lord ere we do sup !

While winter winds do snow and blow

And springtime rains make all things grow

While summer sun warms all we’ve got

And autumn crops do fill the pot

We need to say our thanks once more

Before we exit life’s back door.

How marvelous our God must be

He did all this for you and me

There is no way we can repay

What He has done in one short day !

Oh tiny one how sweet you are

You glow and shine, you’re mommy’s star

Oh little angel here on earth

There is no price could buy your worth !

Our God in heaven up above

Gifted each with unblemished love

There are so many ways to show

True love for Him as each does grow.

Remember how to thankful be

And grateful that His love is free !

EXCUSE me, have you noticed the motto on Canadian car plates, JE REVIENS ? I was reminded of same as the local ambulance returned me on a bodyboard to a familiar hospital about two months ago. Even the blaring siren did not interrupt my reverie ! Perhaps I was in a state of shock, lying there flat on my back in the middle of Washington Street across from City Hall at lunchtime in 26 degree weather. Imagine that ?  I think the cold dulled all sensations !  Due to local construction there was a delay in the arrival of EMS. Between police, medics, onlookers, strangers and new friends, I toughed it out, not easy at 84 !  Thank you Martha for staying with me the entire time, I never saw your face but if we should passagain please tap me on the shoulder and introduce yourself.  Well here I am, eyesight recovering and assorted parts of my limbs slowly returning to varying degrees of normalcy thanks to docs, treatments and rehab in that order !  As I was rolled into the ER that day, I saw my retired doctor and longtime friend, Y.Y. Lee, fresh from his condo in Miami visiting the facility’s staff, how great !  We go back almost 40 years, that’s some history ! There was Jennifer, Dan, Genesis, Lena, Vince and Dr. Safran and not one broken bone, a blessing !  For me this has been a time of miracles, thanks to my Pentecostal angels Ralph and Rosie, their congregations and many prayers along with all the others who have kept me in their daily thoughts and deeds !  With kudos to 7th floor rehab, Anna, Missy and the rest.  God bless you all. I can still laugh at myself in spite of my frailties !   Sincerely,                Claire B.

The God I know is just and fair

Enfolding us in loving care

He’s kind and good and always there

Accepting of our smallest prayer !

Have you heard the angels sing

Their voices bear angelic ring

I know their choir is ultrafine

The chills run up and down my spine

I wish that I might join their ranks

So I could share my grateful thanks !

Thank you Lord for another day

The wind is cool the sky is gray

But if we wait a little while

The morning sun begins to smile.

Such joy to wake this way each morn

Why should I feel lost or forlorn ?

My heart is full my mind is clear

My love of God defeats my fear

I am so glad that I can see

God’s gracious care that comforts me !
