A Poem of Life and Love

Updated: Jul 1, 2023

Life and love are the theme of my heart A season for change, a season to start Where would I be without Your guiding star? You show me life, you show me love, who You are

As days draw on and times grow cold, As men grow weary and bones grow old, Still You are my eternal refuge I find comfort in Your wings

You take me on Your shoulders and we fly Fly, fly, fly… ‘Til soaring we are roaring beyond the highest height And on and on in awe of Your creation I ride

The greens of the trees, The whites of the skies, The blue glistening of the morning dew, Drawn by Your omniscient eyes

All Your works inspire in me desire to do well To be creative, to be brave, To take on the challenge of each coming day

May my life be like a rainbow in Your eternal sky Ever beckoning attention, telling of Your life

Rejoice, O heavens! Rejoice, O seas! The Lord of glory has come to thee And Jesus is His name Forever may He be the joyful song that I proclaim

In night and day, in spring and fall, His love is yet the greatest of all

The world tries, the world lies, The world wears a good disguise, But all its tricks shall fail All its pleasures shall pass

Yet in eternity God’s love for me Will ever shine through It’s not my fault; He’s to blame He gave me love; my only say Was saying, “Yes, Lord, yes. “Thank You for Your gift.”

Now night is nigh, and day shall dawn And every dawn, I shall awake And whether I wake on earth or Heaven, My destiny is sure

For Jesus died and paid the price Yet lives that I may live And trusting true, I was made new Now His life I can give

To share His love, to share His life, To be His beloved, to be His delight, Is indeed a blessed plight Despite the strife, despite the pain Despite desire for worldly gain I know my God is for me

So living like He lived I may truly live And loving like He loved I may truly love

Each day I begin again A new venture into this adventure of life in Christ What surprises await me? What joys? What trials lurking? What temptations deployed?

Never shall I know, but one thing I see: I know my God, and He knows me That’s enough, and far above ‘Cause He’s my source of life and love

Life thoughts after watching “The Song”

From a journal entry on August 28, 2016, Sunday, after watching the movie, “The Song,” about King Solomon’s life in a modern portrayal. I look back on the simple days, Before “cool” things or trying t


Oh, how I miss, on most days, the chance to think! To sit in silent reflection, To ponder the infinite cosmos of whim, and fancy, and fact. To laugh at the odds of inconceivable chance, To let my min

Desperate for Restoration

Desperate times call for desperate measures, And hardly a time have I known more desperate than this. Desperately I want to see your life restored – A friend so loved, now so lost; A breaking, raging
