The Best Gift We Receive

First, we receive and accept it
It is wrapped beautiful and tight
We begin to wonder about it.

Slowly we begin to peer in and look
Then we begin to see and understand
We feel happiness and excitement.

We acknowledge and thank the Giver
For the most wonderful gift of love
One where memories still remain.

People Have Fled Syria

I know how you feel-

You feared for your own lives
You face suffering and pain
You are abandoned and scared
You are hungry, thirsty and cold
You are discouraged and sad
You feel neglected and unloved
You are desperate and cry
You are worried and helpless
You are sick and weakened

God didn’t want this; the
Fault of people did this.

Inspired of the people who had
To flee due to human error.

An Evergreen Marriage

Maybe we should think of marriage
Like the evergreen tree.

Decorate it each year with faith,
Hope, peace, love, and trust.

Be creative and keep it fresh, give
It water, and it should take root and
Continue to grow through the years.

It will weather the storm a few times
During the year; but with nurture,
It will gain continued strength.

Inspired of a faith-filled,
Loving marriage

Does the Sun Set in the West and Rise in the East?

Jesus Christ is the light of the world,
And He was born in the eastern world;
A savior to all of mankind.  God had
Chosen this certain place; in the east.

We were to follow this certain star into
The evening sky; because the sun reads
Only time, not the land location. The star
Had shown brightness that evening night.

Jesus brings us PEACE in the darkest days
And nights.  A comfort within our souls; we
Are in the likeness of Him.  And His teachings
Live on throughout the west and the east.

Remember that the light of the sun rises in the
Eastern horizon, reaches high above at noon;
And by evening it sets in the western horizon.
We all must share in the light of Jesus Christ.

(My Christmas greetings to the world; 2013)
