Whether Alive Or Dead

The water in your well is sweet
Your life bread is nourishing
For those who hunger for you
They shall not be left unfilled

For to daily drink of your fullness
And to eat of your living bread
Is to accept your nurturing grace
In an everlasting bond of unity

Your words are daily bread to my spirit
And faith is the living water of your well
Your word is essential to those who choose
To receive its kiss upon their hungry lips

I shall always have a deep need of You
Whether alive in this world or the next
Or while dancing in the golden streets
Of your eternal heavenly paradise

For You, Lord are the one good reason
That I shall always be alive and free
For your word’s touch of grace has
Given me Your lasting kiss of life.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Zephaniah 3:17
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty
one who will save; he will rejoice over you
with gladness; he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

Never Again Crushed Or Broken

Tags

, , , , , , ,

The day when I lost all my possessions
There was something special I found to stay
Crushed in spirit without anything worldly
Before I could kneel on my knees to pray

Your Spirit touched my heart deep within
Chasing the clouds of needless sorrows away
It was at that very moment You reminded me
Where my faith should always stay each day

Your arms have always embraced me tightly
Each new morning of life holding me close
Always letting me know in my trying times
I was one of many whom You loved the most

Letting me know You saw my daily struggles
Seeing how the enemy in my life was at play
Reassuring me not to worry about tomorrow
For in my life, he would not have his way

You lifted me making me stand strong in faith
As from Your lips, these sweet words were spoken
I am the good shepherd who will always be with you
And in My embrace, you’ll not be lost or broken.

(December 1976)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 34:4
I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.

2 Corinthians 4: 16-18
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self
is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed
day by day. For this light momentary affliction
is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory
beyond all comparison, as we look not to the
things that are seen but to the things that are
unseen. For the things that are seen are transient,
but the things that are unseen are eternal.

You Lord Are My Needed Light

Tags

, , , ,

You are the needed light in my world
You are my needed spiritual joy
You are the strength I desire daily
The heavenly bliss I seek to enjoy

I am always in need of your spirit
The genuine wisdom he brings my way
So I may grow stronger in my faith
As I seek to serve you more each day

My life happily receives your blessings
Since I chose to walk your pathway
I will always seek to serve you, Lord,
With psalms glorifying you with praise

And I pray each day many come to know
The inner peace I never seek to let go
For each day I will embrace happily
The living word which allows me to grow

…stronger in your grace and love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2 Peter 3:18

But grow in the grace and knowledge
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now and forever!
Amen.

When I need happiness in my life
All I desire is to see your smile
Each time I embrace its beauty
In my mind, I feel very worthwhile

In my heart, I am easily inspired
By the serenity, you bring each day
Finding with you sharing my life
I’m very blessed to have it stay

You know my heart loves no other
And I never want it any other way
Because with your love in my life
It will always remain a lovely day

There’s not another treasure like you
With whom I will always want to be
Not a valued treasure found in my life
As my gem who shares her love with me.

“Happy 60th Birthday, Deborah Ann”

Close To Me Always

Tags

, , , , ,

A kind sweet word eludes
me now, a simple harmony…

A sweet, kind love which
I know is mine, I desire
Now with me

I long to see those lovely
brown eyes full of the
golden sunshine from above

How much I miss their tender
glow but even more, I miss
her endearing love

My heart knows what can
happen each day, what her
soft touch in my life can
do

When it is accompanied by
a tender kiss which only
comes, from a selfless love
like you

I’m moved daily by your
endearing love, also
the warm embrace to me
you always bring…

I find myself easily inspired
in my heart by the melodic
rhapsody which causes my soul
to sing

And kind sweet words freely
dance from my lips while sweet
praises seek ways to escape

As the sweet love whom I
know is mine alone happily
returns home to my loving
embrace.

The Smile My Heart Does Know

Tags

, , , ,

The morning sun
has no brightness
the midnight star
has no glow

And a falling star
has no radiance
as the smile that
my heart does know

And the summer has
no real beauty
and the winter no
loveliness one can
see

And the spring has
no lovely flowers
that can compare to
the likes of thee

And the sunset
shall be a memory
and the red rose a
thought that fades

And paradise shall
be lost forever
the day you pass
away…

For the morning sun
has no brightness
and the midnight sun
no glow

And a falling star
has no radiance as
the smile my heart
alone does know.

A Certain Love

Tags

, , , , ,

Only in Your presence
Can I find the joy
Which my heart needs

Only when walking
Beside You can I truly
Find what brings me peace

Only by sharing my
Quiet moments with You
Will I know what it is
I should do

And only in the love
You give my Lord,
Will I find a love
That‘s always true.

never changing, so our love should be the same,’

Special Moments

Tags

, , , , ,

There are moments which are very special
The kind another can never take away
The moments are so wonderfully beautiful
Creating a love’s hunger seeking to stay

Filling a heart with a special blossoming
Whose lovely consuming fragrance stays
No matter whether you are close to me
Or the times my love you are far away

The moments spent with you are precious
Treasured gems which each day inspire
They always touch my heart deep within
Bringing to life each day loves lasting fire

I find in my life it always stays that way
Each moment I dream of your lovely eyes
I know with your love’s lasting embrace
From my life, you’ll never say goodbye.

We learn daily from your word,
as we seek to learn your ways.
We live for the promised chance,
to see many more brighter days.

We love you Lord with our all,
as we daily seek to do your will.
We are not afraid to fall down,
for your love, we will still feel.

We want to be the bright lights,
that brings happiness to one’s heart.
We never want to hinder another,
causing their body to fall apart.

We seek only to daily edify,
making strong the young in faith.
So when we journey on to glory,
someone behind can take our place.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand
forever.

Matt: 5:16
In the same way, let your good deeds
shine out for all to see, so that
everyone will praise your heavenly
Father.

You Are, All That I Need, All My Heart And Soul, Blessings

Tags

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
YOU ARE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My love you are a God of
Great mercy, a Lord of
Great love, a King of great charity

You were before all
Thoughts were conceived
Of the dream Gods of men

You were when the universe knew
No sin and all did praise
And glorify your name

You were, the life of all that was
And your life was of the Son,
And the Son was of your life

The Spirit was of you Lord,
For He is your power
And the power of the Son

Woe be to him that dares to
Separate by mouth with blasphemous words,
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

For how can the one who
Has no knowledge,
Speak on He who has all knowledge?

How can he that is with sin
Disregard He that is without sin
As not being a reality?

How can he that can only create
Things corruptible, which do not last,
Destroy that which was created
By an unblemished God, and not suffer
The wrath of his anger

Because of his corruption
He will die…unless he calls
Upon the Lord Jesus Christ
To intercede for him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All THAT I NEED
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On You, Lord I shall depend
All of the night and
All of the day and
You shall be my only Lord

Your strong right arm
I shall always rely upon
To protect me from the
Sharp arrows of the enemy

Your living word shall be
My only shield against his
Frontal attacks and the power
In your name, yes, the power
In your name will protect me
From the rear

And your love shall be my hedge
From evil and none shall
Overcome or trample the hedge

For who is mightier than you?

On you my heart will always depend
For a spiritual life so rich and
Abundant, for all that I am, my life
Is only in your hands to give me
“All That I Need.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All MY HEART AND SOUL
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Your hand, dear Lord, is always upon
Me like a ray of sunlight parting the
The clouds to find a small flower on
The earth

You have found me Lord, and
There is nowhere that I may be
Where you Lord cannot always
Find me

For as the rains that fall,
Finding the smallest essences
Of life, my Lord, you have
Always found me

You have touched me with your
Word, for there is a certain
Beauty and wholesomeness to
Be found in your word

For you have ordained your word
To live forever, and never will
It come to an end, for your word
Is eternal.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BLESSINGS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You have made my life to be
Full of Your daily blessings

And it is so wonderful to know
That my life is in your hands

For my faith and trust are in that
Promise that you delivered to me
Within your words, and I know you will
Never leave me, I know you
Will never leave me alone

And I thank You Lord for your eternal
Love, and also your everlasting kindness

So I pray Oh Lord, never please depart from
My side, and always lead me daily in Your
Awesome ways.
