The Torch Shall Never Be Extinguished

I shall never forget this great president

Lines by Linda

The tears of a nation unleashed across the United States,
Fifty years ago, in an evil act of hate.
John F.Kennedy assassinated in Dallas as tears wouldn’t go away,
Middle aged Americans know where they were that day.
He was a dreamer, a man of faith in his country and each man, woman, and child,
The words, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what can you do for your country.”
The invitation  for people to help others all across the earth
His legacy and torch we carry on within our hearts at each day’s birth.
We thank you for sharing Him with us, Lord, are we ready to serve?
May the torch of his life never be extinguished, as we carry forth the light.
May the light of his life keep each generation burning bright.

Falling, but always looking up!

Falling down and landing hard with a creak and a yell,
loving husband picking me up after I fell,
No broken bones, just deep bruises and ligaments to heal,
No longer thinking walking is just an ordinary deal.
A walker, a jump, a skip and a hop,
An everyday effort that just won’t stop.
I feel like a baby learning how to walk,
Now it is time to practice until without fault.
I know what it’s like to be down and low.
I”ll just keep looking up and soon going with the flow.

Climbing the Ladder

English: Jacob's Ladder

Starting at the bottom, looking up,
I climb each day, rung by rung,
Not worrying about the yesterdays gone,
Forever living each day, counting each one,
The longer I climb, a fear grips my heart,
What if I fall? How much farther can I climb?
Finally, I stand on the very top, what do I see
All the Glory that God promised for me.
So climb your ladder, believe in Him,
Life without end,
Are you ready to climb your ladder, my friend?

In Memory of Vera Saunders

In memory of Vera Saunders,
91 years of a life she led the way,
raising her sons and daughter day by day
Adding new daughter-in-law and a son in law were sources of joy
Then welcoming granddaughters and grandsons, to always enjoy,
an ever growing growing chain of grandchildren were a bright spots as well
God knew what she was given and to others stories she would tell.
His outstretched arms now hold you forever close.
His love and compassion reached down
to soothe your suffering wiping away panic and fear, We praise God for your victory!
Waiting to meet you and live with you in heaven together, where we will always be!
