FIRST DAY OF SPRING

It is the first day of spring,

You would not think it,

As you look around,

when your eyes get focused,

You see two feet of snow,

lying on the ground.

The snow is falling,

Falling so hard today,

There is no school,

So all the children are home today.

I want to trade some of this snow,

I would even give it away,

For some green grass,

leaves and beautiful flowers,

Bright sunshine to warm the day,

But God knows the big picture,

He sent the snow today,

So let’s bow our hearts,

And lift our hands,

Say thank you Father,

For blessing us today. ~ Winston Staples

The Clouds

THE CLOUDS
Our lives are like the clouds,
little vapors in the sky,
we hang around awhile,
then we say goodbye.
Our lives are like the clouds,
sometimes all fluffy and white,
some times we have our trials,
like the black clouds at night.
Our lives are like the clouds,
being driven by the wind,
sometimes we are tossed to and fro,
as we fall into sin.
Our lives are like the clouds,
that are controlled by God’s hand,
when we put our trust in Him,
He will guide us across this land.
Our lives are like the clouds,
all beautiful and bright,
floating around the sun,
as it sets at night.
Our lives are like the clouds,
little vapors in the sky,
we hang around awhile,
then we say goodbye.

Peaceful Night

moon1

The night is cold,

the night is clear;

I can see so many stars,

twinkling stars from here.

The moon is bright,

and the shadows,

of the trees are everywhere,

the birds are in the evergreens,

finding shelter there.

God’s creation is good,

God’s creation is right,

Thank you Father,

for this beautiful night.

Psalm 31:1-3: In thee O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me In thy righteousness.

Colossians 3:16: Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow.  ~Dan Rather

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.  ~C.S. Lewis

The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.  ~John F. Kennedy

Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if you have to dig a little.  ~Tori Amos

The Move

Many times,

I have moved in my life,

since I have met my dear wife.

We have moved,

from here to there,

and back again,

each time making friends.

There is a move,

I am waiting for,

to settle there,

and move no more,

to meet my loved ones,

in a place,

with no sorrow, no pain or cares.

Heaven, will be this home,

where we will no longer,

no longer roam.
