God Bless Our Children

    Monday, August 30, 2010, 9:02 AM [General]

    Dear Heavenly Father,

    Be with our children so special and dear

    Hold them close so they know you’re near

    Be with each, be with all

    Help them get up when they fall

    Refresh their thoughts and minds anew

    Guide them each day as they look to you

    Put a fire within their hearts

    So from your way they never part

    When the storms come and the winds blow

    Shore up their foundation so they will know

    Their Rock is firm, steady and strong

    And unto you they will always belong

    Tick Tock...Tick Tock

    Monday, August 30, 2010, 8:47 AM [General]

    Tick tock…tick tock

    Time keeps ticking on the clock

    Hearts on earth thump to the beat

    To and fro go busy feet

     

    Off to work, the daily grind

     Many distractions fill the mind

    Pleasure, excitement, food and fun

    Why! There’s enough for everyone

     

    We hurry, scurry, we toil and build

    Yet the emptiness within is never filled

    We dig and search, we seek and look

    We read and study many a book

     

    We fall in love, our hearts entwined

    Raise a family, wine and dine

    Hold our grandchildren in our arms

    Delighting in all of their little charms

     

    Tick tock…tick tock, time surely flies away

    Life’s so sweet, too short they say

    We grow old too soon, sad but true

    And years gone past we cannot renew

     

    The great beyond has a way of beckoning

    As we draw closer to the day of reckoning

    Take stock now, reach for the sky!

    No time for sorrow, do not cry

     

    God is near and to Him let’s draw

    He melts hearts - his love to thaw

    He gives hope where once was none

    He has the answers! Face the sun!

     

    Feel the warmth and light He brings!

    Pray and worship – hearts now sing!

    Christ has triumphed, there is much in store!

    Time with him is forevermore!

    A Sacred Summit

    Monday, August 30, 2010, 8:42 AM [General]

    Heaven – sure it’s up there, while hell’s down here

    God knows on earth there’s much to fear

    There is greed and killing, hate and war

    And death continues knocking at the door

     

    “Imagine” unifies us as we sing for peace

    Soldiers fight and die for killing to cease 

    We drown our worries, we try to hide

    From everything happening in and outside

     

    Where can we go - how do we escape

    From dark and dangerous landscape?

    The world - a hospital full of sick and their woes

    With no power of themselves to fight off their foes

     

    Though hell might be here, rejoice! Heaven is too!

    And not so far away like I once knew

    I’ve found an escape where I truly belong

    For reassurance and peace all day long

     

    Each morning a treasure lies waiting for me

    So I awake joyful and rise eagerly

    A book I can open and read with delight

    About the God of superb love, beauty and might

     

    It is at this sacred summit I can view eternity

    And spend time with Heaven here close to me

    The view is glorious, the cares are few

    Time has erased pain and all is new

     

    Here my life is not a story just about me

    Each of us fit into His grand story perfectly

    Knowing earth and its troubles are under His control

    Brings peace to my mind and rest to my soul

     

    I dwell here mornings with light beaming in

    Far removed from this world and the ways of sin

    My mind is transformed and my heart does swell

    It is here in God’s storybook that I am refreshed so well

    Foundations

    Monday, August 30, 2010, 8:36 AM [General]

    Our wonderful home on Mother Earth

    We live, we touch, we see, we feel

    A natural journey since our birth

    From her springs our every meal

     

    Eons past, words of power spoken

    Into existence Earth became

    Serving us as a grandeur token

    For faith in the power of God’s name

     

    Mother Earth, our visible foundation

    Yet there is another we cannot see

    The rock of our salvation strong

    Designed to set human spirits free

     

    God exists, our heavenly Father cares

    Of this truth like a handle take hold

    Never let go, put your trust in Him

    He will enclose you within His fold

     

    Life is worth living! Yes, indeed!

    We are loved by Him who counts!

    Jump in, get wet, drink abundantly!

    The Rock of Ages shares His fount!

     

    The unseen city a foundation firm

    Ever more real than Mother Earth

    A heavenly city designed by God

    From which springs our eternal birth!

    ALWAYS LOOKING UP

    Sunday, August 29, 2010, 3:57 PM [General]

    Each day I must come to grips

    With me, myself and I

    For I am just a nobody

    And so many are better than I

     

    This stick figure made of dust

    Who dreams of better days

    As night closes in and all is dark

     I loathe my selfish ways

     

    If I could pull this old heart out

    And replace it with the best

    A true heart with not a blemish

    Oh to be so perfectly dressed!

     

    Then I wouldn’t have one regret

    Or hurt those so very dear

    But here I sit in the pit again

    Tormented with guilt and fear

     

    I can’t believe that I’m allowed

    To walk upon this earth

    To feel the warmth of the sun

    And breathe sweet air since birth

     

    Amazed and thankful for each day

    As morning light sheds abroad

    Another chance to begin anew

    Another twenty-four hours from God

     

    My only hope is Christ alone

    Oh to be so delivered from myself!

    That’s why I must believe in Him

    Or completely hang it up on the shelf

     

    So I get down on my knees each day

    This nobody I call me

    And hope and pray to God up there

    For the mercy to be set free
