There’s a path that is right,
And one that is wrong.
We can follow our Lord
And enjoy His song
Or go our own way
And reap a sad end.
There’s always a choice
Just round the bend.
Let’s make our choices
For His glory, not ours,
For if we don’t do that,
There’s one who devours.
So, steadfast, immovable,
Let us always be,
Following Him together,
The Sunny Spot
I took this journey in my mind,
Relaxing along the way.
I found a sunny place to stop.
Why a tear fell, I cannot say.
The sun was shining, warming me
As I stood by the cedar tree
In the yard in front of the house,
With my swing by the side of me.
I saw the fence, the porch, the door.
I could envision the whole scene,
But I saw no one else around.
What could this mean?
I recalled how Dad worked on the farm…
Mother’s cinnamon rolls baking,
But I stood there all alone,
Enjoying warmth, but somehow aching.
Christmas All Year
I am so glad I can celebrate Christmas every day of the year,
For I know the Lord of it and hold Him very dear.
He’s in my heart and is my friend from day to day.
He knows all about me, not just what I think and say.
He gives me purpose and direction, guiding me by His Word.
He’s the most important message I have ever heard.
The bells of Christmas ring in my heart with joy.
The carols of His birth are words I often employ.
Every tree I see is a Christmas tree recognizing His birth.
And every beauty I see, a decoration here on earth.
When I see every dancing leaf glistening in the fall,
I recognize the Master Who has created them all.
Each morsel I partake is a special festive treat —
A gift from my Father above, given for me to eat.
Every provision for each day is a specially wrapped gift.
He, when I might be feeling down, does my head uplift.
All through the year I can have His joy and peace.
It’s Jesus Who gives me them and causes anxiety to cease.
I rejoice that I can celebrate Christmas with no respect of season,
For Christ is with me every day — that is my reason!
You’re the best friend
I’ve ever had.
You lift my chin
When I feel sad.
You give to me
The things I need.
You are my friend,
The best indeed!
When I feel shakyAnd want a hug,When all the world hasPulled out the rug,When I am lonely,Needing someone to care,My precious SaviorIs always there.
