God has the Answers

I search the sunrise, I search the sunset, Seeking answers, which forever seem to elude me. At the dawn of day, I arise and I pray, That the Father up above, Will help me find the answers The answers to the questions in my mind. At the sinking of the sun, And the rising of the moon, I am still no closer to an answer, And I am still searching for the truth. But in the twilight of my deep despair, A little voice whispers, Believe in God and trust in him, For He has all the answers.

Morning Blessings

Sweet Release

Dear Lord I thank Thee for this day

And for Thy tender care

I come to Thee on bended knee

And call to Thee in prayer.

Dear Lord I thank Thee for this day

And for my gracious friends;

I look around at those I love

With joy that never ends.

Dear Lord I thank Thee for this day;

Come fill me with Thy peace;

Oh, hold me in Thy gentle hand,

And grant me sweet release.

Refugee Crisis

As we go about enjoying this beautiful and peaceful Sunday let us keep those fleeing for their lives in our thoughts. Today I learned that another boat with immigrant sunk off the Greek Island of Lesbos. Fourteen people are feared dead including a five year-old child. Let’s say a word of prayer for them. So much turmoil in the world…if only we as humans had the capacity to love one another, what a difference it would make.

I Knelt to Pray

I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.

So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
And jumped up off my knees.
My duty toward God was now done
My soul could rest at ease.

All day long I had no time
To spread a word of cheer.
No time to speak of God to friends,
They’d laugh at me I’d fear.

No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time the time to die.
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God held a book;
It was the book of life.

God looked into his book and said
“Your name I cannot find.
I once was going to write it down…
But never found the time”
