Today,

An extra day,

What shall I do with it?

Making a special memory

To look

Back on

If I am blessed to be alive

Four years from now, if not,

Then it’s for my

Family.

Walking in Faith

Brown leaf cracked

Is a burden wearing you down,

Like a heavy gown,

A weighted cloak or heavy yoke?

Are you being oppressed,

Or being tried to be blessed?

Is it just a test,

Or the enemy’s cruel jest?

Time and faith will tell,

If it’s from heaven or hell.

A Golden Rose

Gold Rose

This little flower wasn’t in the garden of a queen,

Or even in a place where it might be seen,

Yet it was beautifully dressed,

Looking it’s best, as if blessed,

Bringing joy where it dwelt,

Sharing fragrance with any who smelt.

Oh that I, daily might try, to be

An affinity, in similarity.

My Granddaughter with diploma, rain,and rainbow

This rainbow

Given to me

By Lord God

Just before

I received

My award

Of Mac High’s

Diploma

Syllabic Verse

This really happened at my Granddaughter’s High School Graduation! It was pouring rain almost thru the whole ceremony, we all got drenched, and then…just before her name got called to go up for her diploma the rain stopped and this beautiful Double Rainbow came out with the sun shining thru the clouds! So awesome!

What is HOPE?

Hope Advent Candle

Hope is a Promise,

Hold fast to it without wavering.

Hope is Living, through God’s

Mercy in Christ’s resurrection.

Hope is Grace and God.

Hope’s in you and me.

Hope is an Anchor,

That’s sure and steadfast-cling to it.

Hope is ours for the Future.
