Football Anyone?

Football Anyone?

Cowboys and the Packers-

It’s football, not a fight;

Dear friends are sitting together

To make America right.

Both have different views

About how our nation should be-

Each stand for what they believe in:

To keep America free.

Yet what is freedom really?

To force our views on others?

To truly go against what we want …

And hate our sisters and brothers?

Hate is such a strong word-

But isn’t that what we do?

We look past the beliefs,

And hate people for points of view.

Couldn’t we instead be like Jesus,

And listen to their heart…

And make America great again

With a brand new start?

Begin with a game of football-

Or something that fancies your delight;

Become friends sitting together

To make America right.

Eyes Of The Storm

Cut From The Same Cloth

Ανατολή ηλίου (Sunrise)

Ανατολή ηλίου (Sunrise)

Here I lie in the darkness

But I am not afraid;

A mighty peace fills me;

God is in this place.

Here I lie in the darkness

Time says please be still;

Yet my mind is racing-

What’s my Father’s will?

Here I lie in the darkness

Nothing can I see;

Except the dreams that inspire

Jesus set me free!

Here I lie in the darkness

Reminded of my past;

From the moment of birth,

To the very last.

Here I lie in the darkness

Reminded of God’s Truth

That brings sweet Victory;

Now What am I going to do?

Here I lie in the darkness

Watching the Morning slice with Light

Reminding me it’s time to get up

And walk The Path that’s Right

Bags and Burns …S’up?

A Generational Treasure

Tick-Tock, Will It Stop?

Tick-Tock, Will It Stop?

Moments away before we turn a new year;

Walking with hope, ignoring our fear.

Will anything change? That’s up to me-

To make the right choices on how to be free.

I could easily sit in my pjs all day

ordering out; having my way…

as time leaks past… waiting for none-

everyone changes… but I am just one.

I’m safe with the choices that I make;

here in my pjs, there’s no give and take…

but what if I lived through another heartbeat;

Would I be happy? Would I be me?

What would I do? What choices surround?

Would I be lost? Could I be found?

Who would I follow? Who would I teach?

What are the tools with the world I would reach?

My blood would stay red; and as long as I have breath,

what good’s pajamas as long as there’s death?

Is it really freedom in my pjs I ignore,

life around the world, just outside my front door?

Moments away before we turn a new year;

walking with hope, ignoring our fear;

may I open my eyes and open my heart;

live like my Savior from the very start!

Jesus, help me improve lives… starting with mine;

I have to hurry up now before there’s no time.

Unchained Promise 

Unchained Promise 
Stand tall, shoulders back;

But I want to fall in your arms-

Growing up is quite remarkable!

But not without your sweet charms.
As a child, I held you close-

To scare the shadows away;

Stand tall shoulders back-

Never any room to play.
Teddy, I want to hold you close again;

To help me hold my shoulders back-

For the days I must stand tall;

When the shadows try to attack.
But I must keep you there, 

If i will ever grow up;

Never will I forget or leave you…

Knowing you’re mine is always enough.

Be Punctual 

Be Punctual
Questions swarm around my head

Staring at my sentence.

I am in a jam for what I said,

Now I feel repentant.

Will this period ever pass?

“I’m sorry!” I exclaim-

What can I do to make this right?

How can I clear my name?

Ellipses won’t save me –

They’re just a bunch of periods

Taking up time and space!

This is quote, “serious.”

Help me to make my mark, 

To turn another page-

Before I find the hyphen 

Within my old age.

Down For The Count!

Down For The Count!

Throbbing head from a fall

Because I couldn’t keep silent.

They were getting on my nerves…

Yeah, now I must repent!

But I’m in pain, I cannot move;

They hit me pretty hard!

Revenge is quite painful –

I shouldn’t have played that card!

What’s this? Ice called “grace”…

I’m to apply it to the pain?

Created to bring healing

All in Jesus’ Name.

Oh, how forgiven I am

Because God first loved me!

Grace to bring my swelling pride down

Just so I can see.

Perhaps I will share His grace

Then maybe my plank will go away

And I can see The Path to walk;

But before I make a move, first I will pray.
