HERE I AM!

cropped-bald_eagle_in_flight_alaska.jpg

Here I am Jesus,

reading your word,

Guided by the Holy Spirit

to learn the greatest,

greatest story heard.

Here I am,

waiting for You,

to come,

to take me home,

to live with You,

and the Saints waiting,

for me to come.

Here I am,

praying for others,

to see their need,

and call upon Your name,

and be saved;

Their blessing from You,

they can claim.

Here I am,

are the words You say,

inviting the lost souls,

to come to You today!

Life’s Roads

Roads: Some roads are long and narrow,some roads have hills dangerously steep, some roads are short and wide, some roads have valleys very deep. All roads have a beginning, all roads have an end; but all roads are not our friend. The Bible speaks of two roads, one narrow and one wide, the wide one leads to destruction, and on this road, everyone’s journey begins. The other road, the straight and narrow, this road is where God wants you to be, this road is entered by knowing Jesus, our one true guide you see. This road leads to Heaven, with Jesus on our side, when we reach Heaven, with God we will abide.

SETTING SAIL!

Setting Sail: Life is like a voyage, sailing across the sea, setting our sails, to find breezes to set us free. as we set sail, we find the sailing may be rough, the waves roaring high, visibility mighty tough. We discover it is so hard, to be captain of our ship, when we have an enemy, seeking to make us slip. When our lives, like the ships, face tempest and despair, we need to seek a harbor, and find shelter there. In this voyage, we have a choice, who will captain our ship, Jesus, who wants to save us; Satan who wants us scuttle our ship. So dear soul, who will your captain be; Satan who keeps you in bondage, or Jesus who will set you free?

WHERE THE RED PINE GROW!

Hiking_Trail_1

There is a place,

about a mile away,

where I would go,

and spend hours every day.

I got on the old bike,

an old four wheeler,

on  it I would go,

to my quiet place,

where the red pine grow.

Some days I would see,

a doe in the grove,

if slowly I drove.

At the right time,

late in the day;

I would stop,

and watch the beaver play.

Most of the time,

their play for me,

was work to them,

while they swam;

they quickly repaired the dam.

In the branches of the pine,

the blue jays cried,

and the squirrels played,

with the gentle breeze,

the red pine trees swayed.

It became my favorite

quiet place to go,

to meditate on God’s word,

to keep my outlook on life,

going straight as a sword.

Just Looking!

Just looking,

my eyes focused,

on the trees,

colored trees,

blowing and swaying,

back and forth,

in the North wind,

telling me;

it will soon,

soon snow again.

Just looking,

looking over the hill,

at evergreens and hardwoods,

stately on both it’s sides;

telling me,

I am growing older,

with each tick,

and each tock,

as the hands of time,

quickly slip bye!

Mother’s Grave

I went to mom’s grave today,

There since 1991,

Her body has peacefully laid;

I went to mom’s grave today,

I know her spirit,

sweet spirit is not there,

Her spirit is in the arms,

precious arms of Jesus;

She will always be safe there!

Soaring!

Soon, I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

flying without wings,

caught up in the air,

to meet the Lord of Lords

and the King of Kings.

Soon, I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

I know why,

but I don’t know when,

when I return,

I will be in New Jerusalem.

Soon I will be leaving,

without a jet plane,

flying without wings,

to meet in the air,

my Lord of Lords,

and King of Kings!
