Each day that I do read God’s Law

I gain so much, far more and more

And as each word comes clear to me

I search for greater clarity.

Now I’ve been at this since I’m small

And barely have a grasp at all

Yet every day I comprehend

To God’s advice, there is no end !

 

 

NOT WITH FEAR ( 2019 ) 2019/01/31

Now I have lived so many years

Years filled with hope and thick with tears

Times when I thought that I was done

And others that were full of fun.

I’ve known the wars and tragedy

And lost those who were dear to me

I left my heart on foreign shore

For those that I shall see no more.

Sometimes  I’ve wondered how I could

Because my heart’s not made of wood

My thanks to God, I’ve come this far

I’m battle weary but unscarred.

I sense that I’ve withstood the test

And hope I’ve given all my best

The end for sure draws ever near

I face my God but not with fear !

 

AMEN.

 

 

 

 

WE CANNOT MEND ( 2019 ) 2019/01/28

Of all our days now passing by

That bring us closer to the end

With standards that our faith apply

To witness and to be a friend,

This is the method each must try

To God above, a message send .

What ere Your will, we shall rely

Upon You Lord, we all depend

For all are Yours and as we cry

Without Your love, we cannot mend !

 

 

 

OUR COMMON CAUSE ( 2019 ) 2019/01/22

Each day I wake and thank the Lord

And pray we are of one accord

I beg we have but this defence

Our world is ripe with common sense.

Tis sad that we have yet to learn

Of all God’s blessings each may earn

It is not wishing makes it so

But how we act and think and grow.

If I should pass this way once more

And chance to knock upon the door

Perhaps you’ll welcome me because

It’s now we must serve common cause !

 

WORDS OF WISDOM ( 2019 ) 2019/01/18

What is it that I want to say

What act of wisdom to display

What golden thought may I impart

To let you know what’s in my heart ?

For I am old, beyond most fear

My day of judgement soon draws near

The only message that I know

Is fear your God and love Him so !

 

 

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 !
