Dear Lord

photo-1474505249622-84b542980263Every time I think you’re missing in action, you show me you’re always near.

You’ve been there through every laughter

You’ve been there through every tear

You’ve been there through my pain in the darkness

You’ve been there even when it rains

You’ve been there when my world was crumbling

You’ve been there through my saddest moments

You’ve been there through my mistakes and failures

You’ve been there when I felt so alone

You’ve been there when I suffered loss

You’ve been there when I searched for life’s meaning

You’ve been there when I was looking for love

You’ve also been there in my happiest moments

And you will still be there even after I’m gone

You turn my darkness into daylight and I can see more clearly your hands is in everythingYour love is eternal…..

 

THANK YOU LORD…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laughing Clown


A clown sits comfortably on my desk.
It’s a constant reminder to
Laugh, smile and jest.
Life can be daunting and take you through loops.
Have fun, play hooky,
Do something different..Oops!!
Take some time to relax your mind.
Smile daily, laugh often
It will ease life’s grind.
Don’t take life too seriously,
We all know daily experiences
can appear so mysteriously.
Joking is all part of the fun
Laughing  and playing
Especially when you’re always on the run.
Free time can relieve the stress
When you’re always thinking
And not living your best.
Laughing is contagious it changes your mood
Relax, be happy it’s for your own good.

We Were Never Promised a Bed of Roses

rose-73388_640

God never promised

Life would be a bed of roses

Filled with sweet aromas

Like the gentleness of a flower

Blowing gently in the summer wind

Trials like thorns and thistles

Show up unexpectedly

Choking out life

Leaving one breathless

Aroused by the darkness which

Quenches the spirit

Uncertainty rushes in

Entangled in a web of confusion

Then light beats out the darkness

And we are reminded

Endurance gives us strength

As we persevere through hardship

Faith in God

Drowns out the darkness

Our senses are stimulated knowing

That better days lies ahead.

 

 

 

 

Impressions about real birds on a wire

birds-on-a-wire-3670268_1280

Birds on a wire,

Sitting in the most unusual place

Hardly a sound uttered,

When they disappear without a trace

Silently peaking at the scene below

In amazement I wonder,

What are they thinking

As they see people run to and fro.

Like an old motion film reel,

Wound on a plastic core

On a projector repeating a movie,

We love and adore

People’s lives are in motion day after day

Real birds on a wire

If they were able to talk,

What would they say?

Looking at human beings progression

As watchers witnessing,

Man’s behavior and daily obsessions

Sometimes I wonder,

What are they thinking?

As they look towards the ground

Is this life, Is this living?

Content with their lives as they

Sit high on a line,

I actually believe they’re doing just fine.

Silence

Silence can be found in so many ways

Be silent, be still get caught in a daze

The mind is searching, go deeper inside

Overwhelmed by thoughts

So vast and so wide

Do you need to know why?

Silence requires you spend time alone

Focus more on the unknown

Let your mind travel in unusual places

Experiencing life and leaving no traces

Be silent! Be still

All you need is your will

Tune out the world as you go to that place

Breathe slowly as you enter that space

The mind streaming thoughts in this altered reality

No rhyme or reason, just acting randomly

Ignore the noise

Which may break your concentration

Cell phones can definitely ruin your mind’s conversations

Be silent, be still

Think deep in your head

It only takes time

You’ll never know what lies ahead.

The Crazies

You see them at work day after day

you try to avoid them,

Somehow they get in your way.

A ball of confusion

Don’t be under the illusion

They’ll ever change

Their ego has a wide range.

Making life at work so unbearable

Your relationship is irreparable.

To the point you want out

Because you just want to shout

But the wrong words may get in the way.

It’s a pity right now you’ll have to stay.

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Responsibility holds the key

You’re all bottled up inside.

One day I hope that you can flee

From the crazies that like to bother thee.
