God blesses me with new life
through the gift of each new day;
it is up to me to acknowledge him
by faith and to choose to enjoy each
day with a sprint of thankful and
anticipation in my footsteps
as I travel along life’s
Let me hear again your sweet voice
and the subtle sound of your gentle laughter.
Oh, to again see your smiling face would
fill my heart with awe and wonder.
And to once more take a quiet stroll
together along the old field road
while enjoying the quietness of the eve
as blows a soft summer breeze.
Oh, to also sit quietly by your side
while the day peacefully transforms to night.
Soaking in the warmth of your love
as tender moments silently slip by.
How I wish I would have known
that was the last time we would speak on the phone
Chatting away below that silent, watchful moon;
How I regret hanging up too soon.
The only comfort I now have is
a picture in my heart and soul
of you living a wondrous life
tending to the Lord’s beautiful garden
in the realms of God’s heavenly kingdom.
Happy Mother’s Day
to you, Mom,
living in glory and splendor of Heaven
Arrival of fluttering and twittering birds
Blue jays, robins and flocks of Canadian geese.
Choir of joyful honks, tweets, and staccato chirps
Descending and floating on a gentle, warm breeze.
Ever minute leaflets and sporadic
Foliage of soft lemon green.
Grass blades sprout and appear;
Hope takes silent wing
Infiltering the warmer air.
Jagged tree limbs gently swish and sway in
Kindred orchestrated choreography.
Long slender branches in dancing display;
Moving, waving rhythmically.
New aromas permeate the wafting wind;
Over the fields and upon the meadows
Purple and white lilac blossoms
Quietly add their sweet-scented seasoning.
Red tulips; also, white, orange, pink and yellow
Softly paint the land in a colorful rainbow.
Tender green clover and dandelions sprout
Underneath the warm rays of a sunbeam.
Vivid blue, the sky illuminates its hue
While ushering in with joyful
Year’s new season of Spring;
Zippered between the start of summer and
Winter’s reluctant and blustery end.
(Paraphrase of Psalms 23)
Jesus is my Keeper; I’ll be content
as He leads me day by day
to pleasant places
to be renewed in him
along life’s pathway.
Although I often stumble through
many trials and snares,
I’ll not be dismayed
by the evil doer
as Jesus calms my fears.
How my Lord continues to
keep sustaining me
with daily showers of his
blessings with love,
mercy, and peace.
Now I know that without a doubt,
His goodness will stay with me
all the days of my
until heaven’s gates I see.
Walk in the firmness of faith
And not in nagging doubt;
Walk in unwavering belief
That Jesus is Lord and King.
Walk in steadfast hope
Even while climbing a slippery slope
Of troubles and tribulations
Through this earthly life’s
Wilderness and desert lands.
Walk in trust and confidence
Knowing that all the Lord’s
Plans will ultimately prevail
And that his unfathomable
Ocean of love will never fail.
His never-ending love which can
Reach the furthest star and
Touch the bottom of the deepest sea.
And fill all the voids of earth and space;
The boundaries of his love,
No one can perceive.
Walk in sheer delight
Of God’s revealing light;
A beacon leading us the way
To the road he has prepared today.
Yes, walk in faith never doubting
That God of heaven is holy and supreme.
And that his son, Jesus is indeed
Lord, Savior and king
Who will reign for all
Walk in faith.
Sun shines in regal
warm splendor; hopeful now for
exit of winter.
