Hopeless to Hope

The scene is set. The curtain up.

Your happy eyes now looking up.

You have no cares, your life is pat

There is no problem. You hang your hat.

The curtain down, the play is done.

And now the crying has begun.

No one understands, you think

And into darkness now you sink.

But, dearest heart, before you die

Open your heart for one last try

And cry out for the God loving you

The One who made you before the blue.

Pray, dear heart, you’ve naught to lose.

In doing so, you just may lose

The hopelessness and darkness too

For light is what He is for you.

There is another better way

And you will make it through this day.

And then the next and light invades

And soon your heart restored will praise!❤

Hope After Loss

The loss happens first

It is deep and ugly and painful

Darkest moment of my life was the loss

The pain of losing him who loved me

I still miss him, still love him, still have the loss.

A year later, I still have the loss the same as the day I lost him.

I still cannot say his name without crying.

And yet as a Christian I have a hope,

The hope of reunion in heaven.

The hope that there is more than now

And Jesus comes for us soon.

And I wait and hope to see him again

And before that happy reunion, I hold my Jesus.

As He is in my heart, he is in my heart

But Jesus wins. He always wins.

My precious Savior is my first hope.

And I love Jesus deepest and will see you again after.❤❤❤   ❤ 

Envisioning Heaven

When the day is hard and long

Escape with your mind

To a world that can’t be found

Unless your spirit finds it.

And think with me a place

Full of beauty, color rich

Where evil no longer resides

And no pain, no tears, no wretch.

And I can envision this

For it comes from pages bright

The text of ancient past

That is my sword and light.

And I know this full well

My Savior waits for me

Loved me enough to die

And rose to set us free.

And I can endure so much

With patient joy and peace

For soon awaits our world,

Our perfect jubilee.

Smile On

There is joy in your soul in your spirit and mind

And the crushing blow comes in the day or the night

And you have to decide how you handle the pain

If you keep joy alive or you fall under the drain

And you think, should you let them steal all your joy?

Should you allow them the sick pleasure and be their new toy?

Oh no, do not give them the evil satisfaction

You keep on your joy and decide to smile on.❤

Smile On

Delightful Days Off

So pleased to stay home all day today!

A day off makes the heart all glad

And blissful car washing and play

We cleaned and rested, watched a movie.

Oh the delight of such a day

For family time without a care

And tying quilt while talking to loves

Thank you, Lord, for such a delightful day!❤
