Focus on Now

“Thoughts” journal cover

The past,

And the future.

The two thieves of our thoughts,

That rob today of its potential

For good.

365 Gifts of Time

Once again we say

Goodbye to another year lived

We look back at days

The precious jewels of time

They live in our mind

Shining, jaded, memories

Remain, we reflect

Upon the good and bad days

Gone forever from us

One Heart

In a world of hurt

One heart among many

Can bring souls comfort

One heart that’s surrendered

Completely to God’s will

As I continue to read the true story of Katie Davis Majors heart’s commitment to God and His will, I am amazed at what God has done through her for the people in Uganda.

I recommend reading her book “Kisses for Katie”. It’s a great testimony of what God can accomplish through one heart that’s totally surrendered to Him.

Blessings and Sorrows

As blessings come

So do many sorrows

All have some

Present, or tomorrows

Like a beating drum

Life constantly harrows

As blessings come

So do many sorrows

Keep the faith to overcome

And stand strong in all the morrows

Rhyme

Inspired by:–Don Moen–“Be It Onto Me” song lyrics:

You promised to carry our sorrows
Lord, we believe it’s true
You promised unending tomorrows
Lord we receive them from you
