JAR… a poem of faith

red and white labeled jar on brown wooden table

Blinking up at the stars I see

What is right in front of me

A billion reasons like grains of sand

Painted by the Father’s hand

Reflected in the perfect light

Though I may doubt He got it right

Make no mistake of who you are

God dipped you from His favorite jar

GRACIOUSLY… a poem of faith

man kneeling down near shore

If I step out upon the grasses

In the memories of my life

Will I be filled with awed expressions

Or subdued by ills and strife

Will the corners of my lips be turned

Into an upward smile of grace

Or strangled on the bile of sadness

Knowing how I’ve wasted in this place

And when I wake up from this dream

Upon my knees I know I’ll fall

Because my God has blessed this soul

Beyond mere memories

Beyond the wall

So here and now I praise the works in me

That He did give so graciously

And thank Him each and every day

For teaching me the only way

HANDED DOWN… a love poem

woman wearing green top holding hand

If you walk and hold my hand

If you put on this wedding band

If you will love me for all life

I’ll pledge the same to you, my wife

And when our children are all grown

Yes, with families of their own

I hope they look at us and say

Please let us turn out the same way

It all started with a kiss

We’ll look back and reminisce

And cherish every single time

Our hearts beat in the same rhyme

Grandbabies falling fast asleep

Upon our laps all in a heap

With hugs and kisses we let go

God had a plan and made it so

Just hold on tight girl while we fly

Exploring mysteries of life

And know it started with our love

Handed down from up above

AGING… a poem of life and faith

This is a picture of my grandfather on my mother’s side…

Callused and worn

Broken and cracked

Wrinkled and withering

Down in the back

Can’t see a thing

Without the aid of some specs

What did you say

My hearing’s a wreck

And yet I still smile

Every single day

God gave me this time

I’ll not waste it away

Do I consider myself lucky

No, that’s not the test

Someone faithful like me

Knows they are blessed

A WALK ON THE BEACH… a love poem of faith

view of seashore sunset

The sand was soft and cool beneath my feet

A light gulf breeze blew upon my skin

Her hand was firmly grasped in mine

As we walked and talked in the gentle wind

A beautiful sunrise was a promise from God

As the horizon grew orange with a heavenly glow

She bent her head slightly to rest upon my arm

And my heart skipped a beat at the love that it showed

How many more times will we experience this high

So simple, as a walk upon the sand

Embracing the love, I have in my heart

Truly a blessing, from God’s own hand

SAY GOODBYE… a poem

person crying beside bed

I didn’t get to say goodbye

I didn’t get to hold your hand

I didn’t get to see your face

Just one more time

Before my end

And you know I’ll be waiting

Here on the other side

God still has big plans for you

Yes, it’s okay to cry

I hope that you were proud of me

I hope my memories make you smile

I hope you never lose your faith

Sometimes it’s tempting

Just for awhile

And as you travel through your life

Please, always understand

We are temporary dwellers

Just dreamers in a fairyland

INSIDE THE PALE… a poem of faith

Aurora phenomenon

Be who you are

The power is inside

Reach for the stars

Have faith and not pride

Give voice to the voice

That resides in your heart

The words that you say

Can mend a soul torn apart

Speak kindness and love

And lead the right way

Smile and laugh often

Everyday

Time will soon come

And your ship will sail

Stay true in your faith

Live inside the pale

THOUGHTS OF COMFORT IN FAITH…

blue red and yellow abstract painting

If I fall, I know the kiss of a thousand angel’s wings will catch me and set me upon the solid ground with a reassurance that can only come from God. If I lose a friend, my heart may break, but time will heal the heart and soul as our paths have been forever laid out before us in the book of life. We may not know what is written on those pages until we have ventured beyond them, but if we have faith in God, then it really doesn’t matter. Have faith and be well my friends!

MY FOREVER…

Girl Sitting On A Tissue Roll, Cat

I found myself wondering among silver moons and broken stars. Here, is where I happened upon a hollow of stardust swept in by a nearby celestial body that was too bright for my eyes. Momentarily blinded, I knelt and splashed the stardust onto my face and eyelids. A technecolor rainbow of light streaked across the horizon of my soul as I jumped up to my feet and blindly ran. I discovered that gaining any type of purchase upon the billowing soft pillows of a cloud is fruitless at best. Therefore, I gave in and sat down upon that very cloud, and with my face held in my hands, I wept. As the tears slid down my cheeks, I could taste the sweetest saltiness of gratitude from my heart as I came to realize I had nowhere left to run, because my days of running were over, and my time for eternal life had begun! Silly me… What little faith I truly had even in the end…

WHO WILL CARRY THE LIGHT… a Christian poem

black and red sports bike

When the wind stops blowing

And darkness fills the air

Who will carry the light

***

When your heart is broken

And your way is lost

Who will carry the light

***

When your anchor loses purchase

And your mooring is gone

Who will carry the light

***

When your father has passed

And your mother is estranged

Who will carry the light

***

When you drop to your knees

And you pray straight from your heart

Jesus will carry the light
