DO YOUR BEST ( 2017 ) 2017/06/18

The lonely heart doth patient wait

For those who file past heaven’s gate

There is no cause to cry aloud

For who will hear in such a crowd.

The constant vigil all must wage

Before each earns space on life’s stage

The issue is just do your best

And pray that God supplies the rest !

 

THIS OR THAT ( 2017 ) 2017/06/03

There’s often a thought that I have had

That life’s not clearly all good or bad

And sometimes trauma gets in the way

Like visions we’ve had that go astray.

Tis foolish to think we’re of one mind

For this world consists of every kind

The short and tall or the lean and fat

Those who prefer either this or that,

Only time will tell where all this ends

We can be enemies or make friends !

 

MY LIFES LENGTH ( 2017 )

Be still my heart, I hear your beat

And from my forehead to my feet

The numbness reaches to my toes

Tis strange the way  this feeling grows.

At times my heart seems in my throat

I think that I could almost float

The fear it rises, comes and goes

When will this end, nobody knows.

But God’s here standing by my side

He holds my hand, He is my ride

I know that He is still my strength

However long be my lifes length !

 

 

A PRECIOUS GIFT ( 2017 ) 2017/05/22

A precious gift we each receive

Which all are anxious to believe

A God who’s there to see us through

In all the deeds that we shall do.

We thus are meant to comprehend

That life continues without end

So we must learn that day by day

There is a role that all will play.

Its parts are varied one by one

The task ahead begs to be done

To see  each other as a friend

And pray for peace until the end !

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 !

 

LISTEN TO HEAR ( 2017 ) 2017/05/16

We’ve already spent far too much time

With foolish dreams verging on sublime

Tis the moment now to change our ways

Reach out to seek more productive days

For the sand is slipping by too fast

Through an opening in life’s hour glass.

God’s bugle speaks with a mighty sound

It shakes the trees and rattles the ground

The tremors are felt around the world

As heaven’s power to earth is hurled

His day is coming, it’s close and near

Lift up your eyes, then listen to hear !

EXCUSE ME but Pinot Grigio and I shall have to postpone our nightly reunion for a few days as I am once again reluctantly detained on 4 North, guest at my favorite Hoboken University Medical Center A/K/A St. Mary’s ! And there I was, full of self congratulatory expressions that I had made it to Mother’s Day without having a stroke in 2017 !  Hence I’m writing to you from my bed in # 418, minus my wonderful view of the Park and the grounds of Our Lady of Grace to the north, as I am on the opposite side of this wing !  After MRIs, Cathscan, Ultrasound, et cetera, I have a positive attitude that I shall once again return to Rehab, hahaha !  Guess that my actual certificate of Graduation in 2016 ( on parchment ) is no longer valid ?  The face of Hoboken certainly has changed these last few years, wonder what Frank would think of his hometown today ?  Looking forward to posting this ASAP and marveling at the expediency of Wi-Fi .  We all need to take a deep breath and another look to understand and appreciate the wonder of this new world in which we exist, and thank our Lord for His love and tolerance of our human faults. Amen ! Sincerely,    Claire B.
