Life Goes On and On

Shore_sun_sand Public Doman

 

That old picture of you

I keep near 

I keep close in my heart 

I did from the very start

You had to go away

But I want one more day

To have you, to stay

Life goes on and on

The tide

Rushes in 

Rushes out

No doubt

Your smile pulsates my heart

The sun blasts its toasty breath

Warmth within and without

I kneel to pick up tiny bits of sand

 And life goes on and on

The tide 

Rushes in 

Rushes out

The tide

Will not take my love for you

I gather pieces

In the palm of my hand

 Clench my fist and hold on as tight as I can

Bare-footed you stand there

I taste the salt in the air

Kiss you on your damp neck and twirl a piece of your beautiful hair

The cool sand squishes between our toes

Racing the water to see who will cover the holes

The tide 

Rushes in

Rushes out

And life goes on 

The sun is setting now 

No doubt

You turn and smile and grab my hand

The tide 

Rushes in

Rushes out

And life goes on and on 

LORD I Believe In You

LORD I BELIEVE IN YOU

 Open Link Above – Song By Crystal Lewis

You Are There

My eyes can’t see you

But I can

We are never far apart

For you live within my heart

Today

And every day

No day is the same

Yet you never change

You are the same

Yesterday

Today

And forever

The lion roars and seeks to devour

But you came to give life and live within

Until the end

Thank you

For loving me

For never giving up even when I do

No one can take my joy away

Thank you

For you live within my heart

And you LORD will forever stay

Life is Life New Book

Life is Life

 

I have not been able to blog as often as I would like to lately because I have been busy trying to put together a new book I am working on entitled – “Life is Life“.  Life is in constant pursuit of us, never the same from one day to the next. This is an inspirational collection of stories and poems that will lift you up and encourage you on your ever shifting journey.  They will inspire you and strengthen you as you read of some of the hard times as well as the good times in life.

Your faith will be bolstered as you read of these stories of divine intervention, letters from heaven, and answered prayers.  Life propels us forward from the day we are born and every day we have an opportunity in the midst of chaos to grasp on to hope and hold on as tight as we can.  Every day is an opportunity to learn something amazing and life-changing from the greatest teacher in the world called Life.

I am hoping to have this as an e-book first on Amazon for pre-order by the beginning of next week, and then at Barnes & Noble and other stores thereafter.

Treadmill of Life

Treadmill of Life

It started way back when.

When I moved out on my own and started my own life away from my parents.

The world showed me this thing and said “Here, hop on and just start walking.”

As you go along you’ll learn it has different speeds.

You don’t get to choose them though, because you see; they choose you.

Sometimes you’ll have to run fast.

Sometimes you’ll have to run slow.

Sometimes you’ll get to just jog.

Keep moving, and placing one foot in front of the other; and one day this road will end.

I asked if this thing had a power switch to turn it off and they told me that it didn’t need one. 

They said it was powered by Got-to. “Got-to I asked?”  “Yes”, they said – “Got-to keep moving which is produced by the creator.” “Only the creator of this thing knows when the road will end.

“When you have been on this thing long enough it will stop on its own.”, they said. “So just keep moving like everyone else and do the best you can along the way.”

Finally Home

Heaven

 

Don’t be troubled

Don’t be afraid

I know it’s hard right now

But I’m working on a new home for you

It will have everything just the way you like it

I can’t wait to show you where you’ll stay

But more important than that

I’ll be with you forever!

Happiness

Happiness

Happiness

Happiness is something we create in our mind.  

It’s not something we search for and so seldom find.

It’s just waking up and beginning the day, by counting our blessings and kneeling to pray.

It’s giving up thoughts that breed discontent, and accepting what comes as a gift heaven sent.

It’s giving up wishing for things we have not, and making the best of whatever we’ve got.

It’s knowing that life’s a responsibility for us, and pursuing our tasks without fret, fume, or fuss.

For it’s by completing what GOD gives us to do that we find real contentment and happiness too.
