The Big Tree!

spring_flowers_cupcakes-754734

I remember the big tree,

standing tall and firm,

in the large field,

across the road from me.

Many a branch has blown,

blown in the wind,

causing a whistling sound,

like the sea shells from the sea.

MY OLD SWING

 

My old swing,
sits beneath,
a large old pine;
a good place to sit,
swing back and forth,
my back toward the South,
my face toward the North.
My old swing is,
a great spot to think,
a great place to pray,
write things down,
sometimes in the evening,
sometimes at mid-day.
My old swing is,
a great place to thank God,
as I count the blessings,
He  sends my way.
I thank You,
for my old swing,
where I can meditate,
on Your words night and day.

PATHS

O, path,
so narrow,
and so steep,
many times up you,
I would creep,
carrying a pail,
large pail of water,
on you trail,
trail of ice,
to slip and fall,
would not be nice.
In life,
there are many,
paths one can take,
but two main,
paths we face.
One wide,
travelled by sinful man,
whose number is,
six, six, six;
One narrow,
travelled by Saints,
onward and upward,
to Heaven,
to be present,
with God,
whose number is,
seven, seven, seven.

THE PATH!

The Path!
When a little lad,
I remember,
a str aight path,
over the hill,
leading to our spring,
where I watched dad,
carry a water pail, 
he just filled.
When a little lad,
I remember,
a winding path,
across a large field,
leading us to church,
to read and pray,
for our souls,
to be filled.

MINDFUL GEARS

Some minds are stuck in neutral,
some minds are stuck in reverse,
some minds full speed ahead,
some minds on good things,
some minds need to be fed.
Some minds think positive,
while others seem to dread;
My mind is focused on Jesus,
the Good Shepherd,
who guards His sheep,
and keeps them spiritually fed.
So keep your mind in forward,
looking straight ahead,
and He will guide you,
onward toward Heaven,
there forever to live,
never more to dread.

JUST THINKING!

Sitting here,
just thinking,
how a few years back,
a lady in our church fellowship,
always wanted to sing,
her favorite hymn,  
"The Old Account".
Another favorite,
we would sing,
"God Leads His Dear Children".
Just thinking about the day,
I settled my sin account,
away back in the fall,
in year of 1958.
The Holy Spirit,
entered my being,
and has been leading,
me along life's trail,
each step a little closer,
to seeing my Lord in Heaven.
Yes, He leads His dear,
children along,
because the old account,
was settled long ago.

A WRITING!

Eternal life the best gift ever given!

I don’t get out,

much anymore,

my legs are weak,

my hips so sore.

I stumble, I fall,

if I don’t,

use two canes,

or hold onto  the wall.

I sit and look out,

out the big window

and out the door,

and wish I could,

walk and run,

like I did before.

I still can see,

I still can hear,

and I still can taste

the things God created,

for us to enjoy;

especially His greatest gift,

the gift of eternal life,

through Jesus, His Son,

This one thing is sure,

we can enjoy His creation,

not just now,

but forevermore!
