HIS LAST CALL ( 2019 ) 2019/01/10

There’s a layer of frost upon the ground

A more glistening sight can ne’er be found

See how the light and the shadows collect

Mother Nature’s efforts, I do suspect.

There’s the feeling of snow now in the air

To promise us all it soon will be there

Oh for those days when the time used to be

We were all young and our freedom was free.

When life was a joy and so full of zest

Before we’d begun our own lifetime’s quest

As dew on the rose accompanied dawn

The birds begin singing come early morn.

God was right there when we opened our eyes

Depend upon Him, He offers the prize

For life without faith is no life at all

I’d rather be dust than miss His last call !

 

 

AND WONDERS SHARE ( 2019 ) 2019/01/05

I hear sweet music in the air

That’s offered up to God in prayer

It sounds so full of faith and awe

That is what hymnals are meant for.

We praise our Lord, call on His name

Help us remember why He came

Show us how to aid in His work

And help our neighbors, never shirk.

Let’s make this earth a better place

In which to raise the human race

Depend on Him, He’s always there

To ease our pain and wonders share !

 

THE LIGHT OF GOD ( 2018 ) 2018/12/21

There is a light from up above

That glows with God’s unending love

And smiles upon we here below

Who daily dream and pray and grow.

It emanates from moon and stars

From sun to sun clear out to Mars

And finally as life’s end nears

We are all forced to face our fears.

That special light moves within reach

Of principles our Lord did teach

Stretch out to grab that blessed light

And clutch it close til last goodnight !

 

MY FRONT DOOR ( 2018 ) 2018/12/19

Well, here it is, the early morn

Where shades of night melt into dawn

As shadows pale then disappear

Into the light now grown more near.

When I was young I found that joy

So vital to each girl and boy

My heart grew wings, I learned to fly

To heights that reached beyond the sky.

How little did I know back then

It never would return again

And wishes I’d been hoping for

All failed to knock at my front door !

 

 

REAL LIFE IS HARD ( 2018 ) 2018/12/10

My life moves on, I’m still alive

And plan to think, react and thrive

I’m no fading bud on the vine

Nor am I some sweet valentine !

What e’er I am, there’s no mistake

I’m flexible, I will not break

The power in me comes from my God

Whose taught me this,  real life is hard !

 

HONEST JUSTICE ( 2018 ) 2018/10/06

My passion lies askew and lost

To honesty, there is great cost

I am not sure I have that strength

Since my time is not of great length.

For presently, my age it shows

Although not yet in deep repose

However soon the shadows fall

When I receive that final call.

Upon whose shoulders it will be

I’ll place my cloak of destiny

Who has the will to carry on

This war I chose to fully don ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

BRAVE EACH DAY ( 2018 ) 2018/10/04

Help me, oh Lord teach me to pray

Grant me the strength to brave each  day

Help me to be true to my word

Grant me the favor to be heard !
