A Better Country

May it be we are strangers
And pilgrims in this earth-

Even though this world is
Where we were given birth.

We seek a better country-
One free of sin and stains.

One full of joys forever.
One free of tears and pains.

One free of doubts and fears.
One full of love and praise.

One we can learn ever, and only
About God all of our days.

Laying treasures in this earth
When they have no eternal worth
Won't guarantee eternal mirth.

But wish for death to quickly come
Because life is so often glum
Ought not be so sought by some.

Let me not in these ways to sink,
But in your ways only to think-
For life here's gone in but a blink.


One day I'll go to sleep,
And hopefully you'll take
My soul to be with you
And I'll be wide awake
And sitting at your feet,
When you gently explain
Those dark dreary things
You promised would be plain.

"For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." 1 Corinthians 13:12

Old poem

Seek His counsel, not mine;
With thy Beloved, dine.
Lay thy burdens at His feet,
Come before His mercy seat.

Remember, I am but a man
Though I want to lend a hand
My help when thou art in pain
Is try as I wilt - in vain.

I cannot guide thee as He will
He who said, "Peace be still."
He who loves thee perfectly,
He who gave thee eyes to see.
He who has not failed thee yet,
He who spared thee from the net.

Seek His counsel, not mine.
With thy blest Beloved, dine.
Lay thy burdens at His feet,
Come before His mercy seat.

The Best and Right Way

It's so easy to love
Those who are nice.
But loving enemies
Comes with a price;
A price that must be paid
If we wish to belong
To Him who forgives
Each and every wrong.
Love our enemies-
Evil, with good repay.
Follow Christ's footsteps.
It is the best and right way.
Matthew 5:43-48Collapse )1 Peter 2:21-23Collapse )

I'd like some company,
But who will visit me?
Everyone's busy - or far.
That is plain to see.

And then I remember
You are always here.
May it truly be that
To me you are dear.

Your Word is always waiting
And willing to be read.
Teach me about You, Lord.
Such precious things You've said.

You're the Friend of friends
Who sticks closer than a brother.
You're the one true Friend
Who loves like no other.

Your company is precious;
I don't invite it enough.
Please teach me to love
You-to loathe earthly stuff.

Rainbow Acrostic

Red, orange, yellow, green, and blue!
Amazing, always in that order, & then
Indigo, violet-always, too!
Never failing to be a delight-an absolutely
Beautiful, breathtaking sight.
O-colorful reminder after the rain-our
World won't be immersed in water again.

Bye, bye, Mittens-
Hello, Spring!
Here's hoping for
More colorful things!

Former firm beliefs

such strict strategies should


make all mankind squirm.

almost ashamed to admit
former beliefs far less firm.

Edith and Carl Acrostics

  Every second Saturday
Darling times were had
In this sweet lady's home -
These memories make us glad.
  Hats, and scarves, and mittens,
        she hoped we'd learn to make,
              and though I had taken
             a 2 decade long break, and
          she's been gone awhile,
       her time was all worthwhile.
  Cookies were always ready,
And her husband drove us there.
  Really precious memories
    LouLou, Rene and I share.

"A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a Friend that sticketh closer than a brother." Proverbs 18:24
