A Drive through the Clouds

angelOne foggy December night when Angel and her family came back for a stay
We had reservations to eat a meal as a family gathering as one,
But never imagined that the fog made distance so far away.
We had Ethan, Owen, and Lily buckled all in for a night of family fun.
Mile after mile the fog became thicker and almost like driving in a dream,
When our grandchildren, explained that is exciting, and thrilling it seems.
Throughout the chatter, I shared that God was in that cloud and right in our van,
so we proclaimed like the 3 wise men we would complete the journey to the end. Lily took my hand to say, “I’ll be your angel to help you cross the street.
After the meal with everyone there and eating and our memories complete.
I went to pay for our meal and did not see the step and fell to the floor,
Hoping no one noticed, I hopped back up, ashamed to have been a sight,
But many people were there to make sure I was really all right.
Returning to the table my grandchildren naturally had to have a smile,
To see that their grandma has to fall for them once in a while.

The Winding Path

Grass Pathway

The pathways of our lives
curve along each mile,
finding bumps and detours
we continue changing speeds
we know a destination
that meanders here and there,
for we press on
until there comes that time when we blurt out,
“We are finally there!”
Only to find that drive is within us
to carry us farther and farther,
even after our footsteps end,
that legacy is left for our children
and the winding pathway continues,
forever, in lives we touched,
its winding pathway never ends.

The Obstacle Course

It seems like time life is so complex and any which way we turn

We find life’s hurdles are blocking the race we hope to win,

For what snags and traps are not anything you did to earn,

Rather, it is a chance God gives an internal candle within us to burn.

A horrible disease, a job loss, stress, that just does not quit,

God has his shadow shining brightly to let the race be won.

With his grace and your faith, God is on top of it.

God’s healing is forever and His will for you is done.

My thoughts are forever holding with your hands joined with mine,

That God will meet your every need from all that he will provide,

For my love for you is as countless as the stars above that shine,

Praise Jesus that nothing can stop your healing God has testified!

Dance with joy, shout out His Holy name and lift your hands up above

Forever By you are standing your family and friends united together,

God will shelter you, and shield you, you are under His wings of love,

So stay strong and know you are blessed through any kind of weather.

May You find the peace once again that God made complete,

Each of you are pieces of God’s puzzle for you as a family,

So keep smiling, and lean on him, with anything you may meet.

Rest assured that you are His blessing through all eternity.
