Aging Gracefully

Aging Gracefully I feel the aches and pains in places I never thought I had, And now I hear the title Grandpa more than I hear - Dad; My hair that once was thick and wavy has mostly waved goodbye, And I notice now that I can’t see very well out of either eye; And when folks talk I catch myself sayin...

Settling Accounts, All Accounts Settled

Settling Accounts? Or, All Accounts Settled? “I’ll get you back,” the young boy shouted as his classmate ran away, “This fight ain’t been settled yet, and there’ll be another day”; His classmate stood at a good safe distance, sticking out his tongue, And the fight became a war of words between two b...

Counting Our Day, or Making Them Count

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom -Psalm 90:12 Counting our days, or making our days count? Yes, we spend our years as a tale that is told, As is recorded by the Psalmist of old; And if we have lived to be threescore and ten, What have we done? And where have w...

Echoes of Calvary

Echoes of Calvary - The Cries from The Cross Hearing the Gospel story told, to the renewed heart, never grows old, How one Man was willing to suffer such loss; Dying for sinners, enduring the Cross, We cannot measure the pain He endured for sinners like me and you, Crying Father forgive them, for th...

The Old Man with Alzsheimers

The Old Man with Alzheimers The elderly gentleman was walking quite slowly up an old dirt road one day, When he sat down to rest his tired old feet, and saw a young boy at play; He watched the boy quietly for a little while, remembering his own boyhood years, He recalled all the bruises and skinning...

My Favorite Season

My Favorite Season? After a life of six decades, and two more years beside, It seems the seasons pass so quickly, they almost collide; I ask myself, Is the time really flying, or am I just getting slow? Or are the answers to those questions something I don’t want to know? My favorite season? Now let...

The Good Old Days

The Good Old Days How sweet and precious are the memories I have of long ago, When everything seemed so much simpler, and time passed kind of slow; Back in those quiet and peaceful hills where every day was filled, With praying hearts and working hands, as the fruitful land was tilled; Where hope an...

When I am Gone

When I am Gone There is a Book that I have read, and cherished for many years, It speaks of life, and warns of death, It speaks of pain and tears; The Book tells us that our days are numbered, and even the hairs or our head, It tells of a coming Day of Judgment, a Day that so many men dread; It tell...
