Every October 29 is National Cat Day
I met a guy named George today,
Quite a character was he.
97 years old,
And still full of glee!
He came into the room singing,
Every song mentioned he did know.
Verse by verse he’d sing them out,
He really stole the show!
Our Dance Team came prepared,
Joy and happiness to bring.
Yet it was we who were blessed,
As we listened to George sing.
George showed forth a true joy,
That only faith in God can bring,
As he smiled and encouraged all,
To just open up and sing!

Another day past
The leaves continue to fall
Life seems to become more dear
As each day comes to a close

My mind is racing
Thoughts are swirling in my head
Like leaves in the wind
I hear the sound of your voice
Suddenly all becomes calm

Death visited last night
It took the body of someone I knew
His earthly tent is now empty
But his spirit lives someplace new
There’s a heavenly mansion above
That Jesus prepared and took him to
Where he’ll dwell forever in peace
Because he believed what was true
We all can join him there
And have our mansion too
We just need to believe and receive
What Jesus did for me and you

In memory of Herman (Rock) Kunneman, a brother in Christ, and former brother-in-law on earth.
In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. –Jesus (John 14:2,3)
For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. (2 Corinthians 5:1)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 )
Brain is on standby
Can’t think of a thing to write
Senryu and goodnight

I’m not dressing up for Halloween
I don’t want to be the Red Queen
Or a Mermaid in a suit of green
No Rock Stars or Pirates mean
In no costume will I be seen
For I have no inner fantasy
To be anyone else other than me
And whether or not you agree
I like who I turned out to be
So on October 31st I’ll just be me
