Who Will Catch Me When I Fall

Golden Leaf, quote by John Burroughs

Like a fading leaf

I wonder as I age

And detach from life

On my aged tree

Just what the end will be

I am trusting and

Praying that God’s angels

Catch me when I fall

Asleep on this earth

And like the wind

Gently take me up

To my eternal home

Where I will live on

In the God’s presence

On His Tree of Life

Good Deeds

Daisy, flower, hand
Taking time to show you care

Offering up a sincere prayer, 

Meeting a strangers need,

Doing a small kindly deed,

Sometimes means a whole lot more

Than lots of money given to the poor

Do something small for the least 

Let God multiply it into a feast

Job’s Question



What is “the thing”?

What is the “that” in you

Which is so big it causes such

Great Fear?

Wonder if someday it suddenly

Becomes real and comes?

What will you do?


Or Pray?

What will you do?

Will you fight or just freeze?

Will you crumble in trepidation?

I know

What i would do because it’s come.

And I am trusting God

To remove it

From me.

Double Butterfly Cinquain

Job 3:25–“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”

Keep Looking Up

“Everything happens for a reason”

Is what mother used to always say

“Today troubles may visit you”

“But tomorrow’s a new day”

” Always keep looking up”

“God will make a way”

“This too shall pass”

“Don’t dismay”

“Just trust,

N’ pray”
