An Angel

Last night as I lay in my bed
An angel appeared and said
Your life will soon end
I am sent as a friend
To a new kingdom soon you will be led

Say goodbye to all those you hold dear
Tell all they must not shed a tear
For your passing will be
Liberating and free
With my lead you will not have fear

In life you have suffered too much
Soon you will walk without need of a crutch
In the kingdom to come
You won’t limp you will run
With the help of the lords gentle touch

So I wait for the day to draw nigh
Though I know lots of people will cry
With happiness in my heart
I will gladly depart
Heavens waiting there for me to try

The angel at last has drawn near
He offers a new life so clear
With a silent prayer 
I climb the golden stair
Halleluiah the angels all cheer

Falling Down- Trochee

Every time I take a step,
I end up falling down.
Legs flying throw the air,
Making me look like a clown.

Though if I jump up in the sky,
Holding a simple prayer in my mind.
I fly....
Only to land on my behind!:-)

May I humbly say a word
Why you make my life so hard
Though I pray for your mercy
Never you send returns I see
Is it not quite unfair my Lord

A Prayer

It hurts if canker cuts a rose
Or the moon behind  cloud's kerchief goes'
We are that sensitive.
Therefore o God why give
Any pretty girl a runny nose?

Beautiful Linda became a nun,
prayed in the Chapel forgiving John
who swore her faithfulness
with very solemn words...
she did not know that he was a con!

Raining Cats and Dogs

This past week it was raining cats and dogs,
prayed about it to not get so annoyed,
one car totaled other in infirmary,
husband tomorrow having triple bypass surgery,
Meow, Arf, Splat go land some more in the bog.

			When you’re sucker-punched with frustration	
			and can’t find a cause for elation,
			when you’re unsuccessful
			and life’s super stressful,
			you surely will feel perturbation.

			When you face severe provocation
			and fear that there’s no mitigation
			for hard knocks life’s sending;
			you’re breaking, not bending.
			You seek means of self-preservation.

			You may sometimes feel the temptation
			to cave to complete trepidation.
			Don’t yield, I beseech you.
			The light may soon reach you
			if your mindset’s not resignation.


			When life is a race I’m not winning,
			my foundation needs underpinning.
			Time spent softly praying
			does help heal my fraying
			nerves—fragile from all that head-spinning!

My Boss Prayer

My Boss never forces me what to do,
gave me free will so I can choose,
paradise permit,
or cease to exist,
He by my side I have nothing to lose,

He's always around when I backslide,
knows when I'm sinful and full of pride,
sin disrupts,
He never gives up,
Jesus by my side till the day I die.

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble~
