THANKSGIVING

THANKSGIVING

We’ll be spending our Thanksgiving
By driving over to Grandma’s house
Not a soul will go hungry
Not even a little mouse

She started preparing
On the night before
If there was anything missing
She sent Grandpa to the store

Everything must be perfect
On this day you see
For it isn’t very often
That we gather as a family

After a long trip we arrive there
The first thing we do is turn on the TV
To watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade
There are marching bands and floats to see

Before we begin eating
We hold hands and pray
Thank you Lord for the blessings
That you have given us this day

And we also pray for a special blessing for
The men and women who protect our liberty
Please God keep them safe from harm
They understand that freedom isn’t free

Then Grandpa says let’s eat I’m starving
The first thing on the menu is soup in a cup
In the background we listen to Holiday music
This always helps us to keep our spirits up

Uncle Charlie carves the turkey and
Asks if we want dark meat or white
And even with this many people
There will be plenty to take home tonight

Pass the gravy and the rolls please
The peas and sweet potatoes too
The cornbread stuffing is delicious
And may I have some apple cidar too

When we finish the main course
The women will help to put things away
While the men go and watch a football game
Actually there are several to watch on TV today

Once everything else has been cleaned up
Grandma serves coffee and pumpkin pie
All of a sudden it feels like we’re stuffed
For some strange reason we wonder why

Before we head back to our homes
There are still two things to be done
First we help set up the Christmas Tree
Then we join hands and thank the Holy One

Thank you Lord for the blessings of this special day
We ask for traveling mercies and Your Grace again
May all of our hearts be filled with Your goodness
And to this prayer all of Your children say AMEN

GOING HOME

GOING HOME

The Lord God above is my shepherd
He provides me with all that I need
Yet I do get impatient knowing it's wrong
For all that God does is only at His speed

Forgive me L-rd for the sin of impatience
I will serve and obey whenever You call
My life would be barren without knowing You
From Your Grace and Mercy I pray not to fall

My pen will glorify Messiah and tell about
How His blood paid for my transgressions
Through Yeshua I have eternal life in heaven with
An abundant storehouse of Spiritual possessions

When that glorious day does come to pass
And I am standing before Him face to face
I will bow before Him and express my gratitude
For allowing me to dwell in a much better place

THE NUMBER ONE PRIORY

THE NUMBER ONE PRIORY


God does works in many different ways
That you and I will never understand
But we know Him through the Holy Spirit and
We know that our future has been pre-planned

We also know that God's Son paid the ultimate price
So as Believers in Messiah our sins are washed away
It doesn't mean that we don't have to ask forgiveness
For sins that we commit or are not aware of each day

Don't judge others because we too will be judged
Avoid offensive things that we know are wrong
Our rabbi has minister on this so many many times
By act accordingly our faith will always stay strong

Stop making excuses for not coming to Shabbat services
Like it's too far or my Kids need to be driven to a game
We know that if we're too busy for God we're just too busy
When we think about it these excuses are really very lame

Serving God always should be
Our very first one priority
He controls every facet of our lives because
His Word is always will be the final authority

A good example about what I mean
Is at your daughter's ballet practice session
She takes a spill and is unable to dance at her recital
Don't you think God is trying to teach you a lesson

If your priorities had been in the right order
The Lord would surely have let you know
Her recital would have been a huge success 
Her performance the highlight of the show`

Or perhaps your son allowed the winning to score
I'm pretty sure that both of you would be very sad
If you had lined yourself up with the word of G-d
Instead his winning hit would have made you glad

By now I hope that I have gotten my point across
The order of life's priority is G-d family then you
Ask His forgiveness and He will see that you know
As a believer you know that it's the right thing to do

Back Home

I've been out of town visiting relatives off and on the past month.  I apologize for not posting any poems during that time.

Will try to post a poem weekly, mainly on Sunday.

Please continue to enjoy poems written by my husband, Joel Steinhauer, who went to be with the Lord last Thanksgiving.

GET YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE BACK AMERICA

GET YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE BACK AMERICA
If you watch TV for any length of time
You’ll see some plagiarism in the title
But it came from God’s Holy Spirit
To those sitting around being idle

I’m sure that this applies to much of the world
But Americans are the Lord’s Lat Stronghold
The Lord will bring the end time upon us sooner if
These ungodly situations should continue to unfold

Can I make you fathom this more clearly
God loves every person that He Created
It’s all the sinful things in your lifetime
That God our Father has always hated

The world we live in is controlled by satan but
He knows that the Lord is watching him as well
That’s why God wants you to walk in His Ways
The last place that He wants you to go is to hell

Father God wants you to get to know him better
Or even if you never knew the Lord before
That’s why I got this particular assignment
It’s just for you that He’s opening up the door

Get to know God by reading the complete bible
In the Book of Prophets it all leads to God’s Son
It takes you on an amazing journey that clearly shows
That messiah is a part of the Trilogy of the Holy One

The bible has all of the answers to any question that
You’ll ask throughout your entire life on earth
If you’re unable to find it just ask a Spiritual Leader
He will show you just how much God’s Word is worth

Lastly for a one way ticket to get into God’s kingdom
Confess your sins and accept the Lord as our Salvation
You’ll become a new creation that’s been born again 
I pray that God fills your life with joy and jubilation

Reunited Again

Reunited Again


That special time of the year has come again
When friends and classmates are reuniting
Each year we see new faces and old friends
At our age that truly has to be very exciting

Be sure to smile and say cheese for the camera
We don't want to ask, "Who was that old coot?"
When we look back at all of the pictures we took
We can say, "They really were one heck of a hoot!"

What about some who were here last year
It's something that each of us has thought of
Some couldn't come or are now with the L-rd
But we still have past memories of brotherly love

Only God knows how much time we have left
This is why I urge those that can to keep in touch
Fond memories of friendships may fade in time
But while we still have them mean so very much

HOW TO GET THERE FROM HERE

HOW TO GET THERE FROM HERE

Are you successful in the world we live
Or are you struggling or just getting by
Either way you need to take a step back and
Check your relationship with God Most High

If you're living day to day but
Your faith in Messiah is strong
This may be exactly where you need to be
And where the Lord wanted you all along

You know the riches of this world are only temporary 
Plant yourself solidly on the rock of o-d here on earth
The reward in heaven will be beyond your expectation
There is no way to measure what it is all truly worth

What about those people whose careers have been successful
Do they know the Lord and do they tithe one tenth of their pay
If not when their final judgement day comes from Messiah Yeshua
Heaven's gates will not open and their only recourse is the other way

Take heart because no matter what your station in life
It isn't too late to profess Yeshua as the King of Kings 
Who gave His life to absolve the sins of those that believes in him and
Then heaven's gates will open for you have earned your Angel wings
