Memorial Day Blessings

May those we’ve lost be not forgot.

May those who served be blessed.

For service us was serving God

And they took eternal rest.

For when we give our lives for friends

We show what Jesus did for us

So may the families left behind

Find comfort, hope and rest.❤

Jesus is Near, a Poem of Comfort

When bad things happen, Jesus is Near.

He is ever a prayer call away.

He cares every moment and loves to the stars

And always can comfort and stay.

When good things happen, Jesus is near.

He celebrates life with us.

For His love is for better or even for worse.

And He makes glad hearts joyfully trust.

When nothing happens, Jesus is Near

For every disappointment or rejection.

He comes to us even when nobody else does

And will comfort even the loneliest soul.❤❤❤

As I Wash the Clothes Again

As I wash the clothes again

Thr mundane repetition

Not some great humanitarian feat

For any but who wears them.

And it dawns on me the import

Of what it is I’m doing.

I am washing clothes of Jesus

It is Jesus I am serving.❤

Ode to Health!

How amazing to be healthy, the body again strong.

God’s healing is a smile and a blessing and a song.

Ode to health and wellness in this body of mine,

To not be devastated by congestion, pain and tired.

So thank you, God, for good health, all good comes from You.

And may I never take for granted, my body was made for You.❤

Little Bird

Little bird in the tree, are you looking at me?

Or are you finding a path to fly by?

Should you take off in flight or jump from branch high

And come to the ground for some feed?

Little bird, way up high in the branch, wonder why

There is never a worm in the air?

You have to fly down to the dangerous ground 

To eat that plump worm that is there.

Little bird, it is tempting to swoop down to eat some worm soup

But trouble is there from the cat on the stair. And it is smarter to be thin and up there.❤
