At The End of The Day

river-boat

 

At the end of the day,

when skies are dark,

in the quiet of night,

as silence fills the air;

before dreams

are deep as the ocean,

forgotten at dawn;

let’s remember,

let’s give thanks

to our Father, God;

always watching over us,

night and day –

never slumbering,

never sleeping;

always listening

for our prayer;

always being there,

our burdens to bear,

His love to share.

Thank You, Lord

for Your tender care

always

When The Sun Shines

falls-beauty

When the sun shines
it beautifies,
refreshing our eyes.

Like a gentle tide,
memories flow
of precious days gone by,
the growing years,
loved ones, special places,
precious moments,
different faces.

Joyful sounds abound as
children play, their day
full of new discoveries.

Hearts are cheered
and smiles appear
as grey gives way
to azure skies above
and all around us
glistens.

Love blossoms,
two hearts share;
fragrant scents
fill the air.

Radiant rays
beam through lofty
forests.

Warm crimson sunsets
close glorious days;
twilight haze
paves the way
for starlit skies.

Thank you
dear Lord
for the beautiful
gift of gold!

for the eyes to behold the sun:…”

A Day Is Coming

sunrise..


A day is coming, take heart, dear friend
A day when trouble at last shall end
When Christ shall gather together His own
To be with Him ever in heaven’s sweet home

 When sorrowful tears He will wipe all away
When pain shall cease in that endless day
When loved ones again will see one another
Fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers

 Aunts and uncles, daughters and sons
Grands and greats, everyone!
Where there will no more be clouds of the night
Where Christ, the heavenly Lamb, is the light

 Where joy and gladness forever will reign
When Jesus our Saviour shall come back again
Keep walking with Jesus and never give in
Each day, He’ll give you the grace to win

 That day is coming. Look up and be strong
Hold on to the end, for it won’t be long!
