Tenderly

anniversary art beautiful birthday

Dearest Jesus:

Tenderly, You look into my eyes
Lovingly, You help me to arise
And when I hear the words You speak to me
You banish all my fears and I am free

In all my yesterdays, I’ve seen Your hand
And all along, You’ve helped me Lord to stand
Lord, I can face each day because of You
Propelled by love that’s faithful, kind and true

When burdens weighed me down and heavy loads
You gave me grace and strength along the road
You bid me hand them all to You in prayer
What peace I felt when, at last, I left them there

Thresholds

To simply make light of another one’s plight
Is like leaving them out in the rain
But from 0-10, we’re told to say “When”
So the doctor can find the pain
~
While one may get by, another may cry
Not everyone is the same
The soul is a place where we all need grace
Again and again and again
~
One soul may carry a load today
And then shed that load tomorrow
But what of the one who beneath the same
Also carries a load of sorrow
~
Some may be feeble, some may be strong
Some may be slow, or may speed
God knows how much each person can bear
And can help at our point of need
~
He knows our fears .. He bottles our tears
And encourages us to be strong
Forever to put our trust in Him
Believing it won’t be long
~
So whatever it is, whether great or small
Let’s listen with hearts of love
For “Blessed are the merciful” Jesus said
For they’ll have the same from above

One person’s sufferings may look light to another, and in their eyes be minimised,
but who knows the whole picture? Only God.
He knows the capacity ~ because He made the container.
He offers hope to help us cope.

Blessings and love to All!

Again and Again

Who wants to be a candle,
that shines in a lowly place?
Who wants to be in the shadows,
where nobody knows your face?
Ploughing behind the scenes –

and sowing seeds of love?
Such a heart is precious
to our heavenly Father above.

 Who will keep on giving
their best for no return,
to help someone keep living,
though long-lost love they yearn?
There are so many people

who may have been ignored,
who need to know that they are loved –
it’s precious to our Lord.

 While stars on high above us
in celestial realms do glow,
remember, it’s because of
dark surroundings that they show.
Now every soul is precious –

and needs to know we care.
When seeds of love have blown their way,
they’ll spread them everywhere.

 So let us not be weary
in doing well, dear friends.
The season yet will come if we
hold steadfast to the end.
As blossoms follow sunshine

and also showers of rain,
we’ll reap if we keep sowing
seeds of love – again and again.

Make A Difference


Let’s make a difference

by things that we say;
help brighten the day,
along our life’s way.

Let’s make a difference
by showing we care,
by just being there
when emotions are bare.

Let’s make a difference
by staying a while,
by sharing a smile,
going that extra mile.

Let’s make a difference
by sharing God’s peace
that brings a release;
help worries to cease.

Let’s make a difference,
it may strike a chord,
bring untold reward
and praise to our Lord.

Let’s make a difference
along our life’s way.
“Lord help us, we pray
to start from today”.
