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

I ASKED GOD


 I asked God to take away my pain.  God said, No
- It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
 *******
 I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No - Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.
 ******
 I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No
- Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't  granted, it is earned.
******
 I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No - I give you blessings.  Happiness is up to  you.
 ******
 I asked God to spare me pain. God said, No
 Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.
 ******
I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said, No
- You must grow on your own,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.
 ******
 I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. God said,  No
- I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

 I ask God to help me LOVE others,
as much as he loves me.

God said...
Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

LIFE’S CLOCK

LIFE’S CLOCK


The clock of life is wound but once
And no man has the power
To tell just where the hands will stop
At late or early hour
To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed
To lose one’s health is more
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
As no man can restore
The present only is our own
Life Love Toil with a will
Place no faith in tomorrow-for
The clock may then be still.

ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING

ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING

Do you know that you have an attitude
You might not realize it but we all do
Some may have attitudes of gratitude and
Others haughtiness which of these are you

If you are grateful you thank God every day
The haughty person isn’t nice to anyone at all
The grateful person looms large in God’s Eyes
If haughty He sees them as smaller than small

God always blesses those who show gratitude but
If a haughty person needs help He may look away
However that may not always be the case though
For God sees there is hope in some that may stray

This is where God begins to work His miracles
Putting someone with a sweet spirit in their lives
More flies are caught with honey than vinegar
And their attitude is changed so that it thrives

It isn’t any different in so many other aspects of life
It pits good versus evil which is God versus the devil
No matter how hard he may try to be God he can’t because
God is omnipotent so satan will never achieve the same level

THE LAMB OF GOD

THE LAMB OF GOD

I saw a picture in the paper of
Two soldier in the war against Sadam
In the upper left hand corner
Facing opposite was a lamb

Now you can view this photo
Anyway that you choose
As for me I see it is a sign
Of a war that we won't lose

I see the lamb as the Lamb of God
Who is protecting them from the rear
They may not see him as they face the front
But I think they know that they need not fear

God walks with them all the way
And yet many of them will fall
And though you may grieve for those who die
Understand that they have gotten a higher call

Pray to God for the troops safe return
To this great land where freedom rings
And also pray in the Spirit for our enemies
To be saved and witness to the King of Kings

SEASONS

SEASONS

The seasons come upon us
Each one seems to be unique
In each one the weather changes
Day by day and week by week

The first one that we see is Spring
And the pleasantness of what it brings
The grass turns green and flowers bloom
This is the time when the robin sings

Then comes Summer and the heat
A great time for swimming in the pool
If the air conditioning breaks go buy a fan
There's more than one way to keep cool

Next comes the season of Autumn
It is also called fall if you please
When all the leaves get raked into piles
And scatter all over at the slightest breeze

The last one that comes is the Winter
And depending on where you reside
It's either too hot or much too cold but
The temperature is much better inside

The seasons are a never ending cycle
Perhaps you may sit and ponder why
Then another month has come and gone
And another year has gone passing by
