Life and Love

Life is for the learning
but too often we stumble
Love is for the simple of heart
and the humble
Of both, we can share
with neighbour and friend
and give freely to those
who don't understand
Because it is not our life
and love we share
It is given by the Father
so we may care

And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
Titus 3:14

A Prayer For You

May your life reflect Christ's Love
May your treasures be stored above
May Jesus Christ be all you need
then you will have perfect joy indeed
May you be courageous and endure till the end
so we'll be together in the Promised Land

Seek the Lord and His strength, seek His face continually. 1 Chronicles 16:11
Real Love

Love is something you cannot feel
although it is so very real
Love is something you cannot teach
but it's sure able to reach
Love is nowhere in this world for sale
when God given, will never grow stale
It only can be found
where Jesus is around

But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Psalms 97:10


Reflecting on your life
brings one thing to mind;
a beautiful baby boy
just one of a kind
a teenager lad
as wild as can be
wandering the woods
crossing the rough sea
a young groom
holding his bride tenderly
a father of four
filled with glee
a greying man
who from this world does flee
It's all the same person
how can it be

Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God. Joshua 23:11

To A Friend

Though the future may at times look dim
you can have "Light", because of Him
If your mind appears to be in gloom
you still can choose salvation or doom
Either one, can be the choice you make
please, decide wisely, for your own sake

Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. Proverbs 4:14,15


It is not easy to see this world go all to pieces
as you walk with Him, from this stress He releases
Although the world's future does not look that bright
a new heaven 'n earth awaits them, who're in the Light
So remember that my prayer for you will always be
to be strong in Him and not to flee

Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Proverbs 3:25,26
Deeds, Not Only Words

I don't know what to write to you
because words will fade away
They often lose their meaning
or change from day to day

So, what I think I'll try to do
to keep my love for you
is not with promises or fancy words
but to take each day anew

I know, I need God's help in this
so I can do it right
to show my deeds, not only words
to make our love grow tight

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

Thinking About You

Sometimes it's hard to know what to say
although there is much in my heart today
In years gone by, I have shown you the chart
now it is up to you to do your part

Many times unto the Lord I've cried
that you may see Jesus crucified
that you may give your life to Him
before it's too late and the lights grow dim

Time goes fast and years fly by
don't waste your life, is my cry
Friends all may come and go
and you're old before you know

Your strength and beauty will disappear
there's no hope outside of Christ, I fear
So what will you have left at the end
if Jesus is not holding your hand?

Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto My knowledge.
For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.
Proverbs 22:17,18

Another Year

May you feel, through this coming year
Jesus' presence very near
that in all the decisions you have to make
the wisdom of the Lord will overtake
and in all things you do or say
Jesus will be glorified, I pray

Wisdom rests in the heart of him who has understanding. Proverbs 14:33a

Reflecting On Our Lives

The years flew by, while time was our teacher
I became mother and you were the preacher
There were days, that we did a lot of things wrong
for we were not perfect and didn't control the tongue

Together, we shared our joy and our sorrow
all what is left now is called "tomorrow"
Sometimes, I feel like doing it all over again
but those years we'll never regain

For past sorrow we don't have to mourn
to carry our burdens, Jesus was born
We better lift up our heads and just go on
flying higher and higher, till our time is gone

It's hard to put my thoughts on paper
because what lives in one's soul is like a vapor
It comes up and disappears just as fast
to catch the right words, is quite a task
Please, be so kind not to complain
for I've no more words for the refrain

For with Thee is the fountain of life: in Thy light shall we see light. Psalms 36:9

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. Psalm 27:14
Glorify Him

Now sing a song, to praise His Name
'cause we're so mighty glad He came
He took our sins, He carried our share
He set us free and taught us His prayer
Fly as a free bird and let your light shine bright
so man will recognize the Lord and glorify His Might

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is Thy name in all the earth! Psalm 8:9

The Real Challenge

When you're young, the challenge life may bring
seems to be exciting, for one thing
You'll meet new people and go places
you'll run short on time and phrases

For all the things, you see and hear
are so prominent for eye and ear
When you're older, you'll take a different view
at the fun you did have and foolishness you did do

The episodes mankind goes through
suppose to teach us something new;
when time goes by, these things will pass away
only what has been done for Jesus, will stay

Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. Proverbs 4:26,27

His Gift Of Life

How wonderful is His Love
and how thankful can we be
He is blessing us from above
with His goodness for you and me

Therefore let us sing unto our King
with a new song in our heart
For life eternal He does bring
to us, who don't deserve this part

Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD. Psalm 107:43
