Angels All Around You

Post by B.J.Morbitzer » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:28 pm

~Angels All Around You~



Have you ever met a person
Who fulfilled you deep inside,
Someone whose never failed you
And stands right at your side.

Someone who gives all they have
And brings sunshine all around,
Always smiling and laughing,
Never seeming down.

Have you ever watched a sunset
Across the ocean shore,
And been filled with love and peace,
Never needing more.

Have you ever listened to the wind
Blowing restless through the night,
And heard angel's whispers helping you
To see when you've lost sight?

Have you heard a song that moves you
And sets your soul free,
And makes you forget your anger
And makes you feel happy?

Have you ever given to someone
When you didn't have it to spare,
And feel so worthy inside,
That you didn't have a care?

Heavenly creatures surround you,
So listen closely to what they say,
They'll bring you all of life's riches,
As they guide you along your way!

Little Eyes Upon You

Post by B.J.Morbitzer » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:31 pm

~Little Eyes Upon You~


There are little eyes upon you
And they're watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly take
In every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
To do anything you do;
And a little boy who's dreaming
Of the day he'll be like you.

You're the little fellow's idol,
You're the wisest of the wise.
In his little mind about you
No suspicions ever rise.

He believes in you devoutly,
Holds all you say and do;
He will say and do,in your way
When he's grown up just like you.

There's a wide-eyed little fellow
Who believes you're always right;
His eyes are always opened,
And he watches day and night.

You are setting an example
Every day in all you do;
For the little boy who's waiting
To grow up to be like you.

I Will Follow Jesus

Post by B.J.Morbitzer » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:35 pm

~I WILL FOLLOW JESUS~


You ask why I follow my Jesus
Why I love Him the way I do
When the world's turned away from His teachings
And the people who serve Him are few.


It's not the rewards I'm after
Or gifts that I hope to receive
It's the Presence that calls for commitment
It's the Spirit I trust and believe.


The Lord doesn't shelter His faithful
Or spare them all suffering and pain
Like everyone else I have burdens
And walk through my share of rain
Yet He gives me a plan and a purpose.


And that joy only Christians have known
I never know what comes tomorrow
But I do know I'm never alone.
It's the love always there when you need it
It's the words that redeem and inspire
It's the longing to ever be with Him
That burns in my heart like a fire.


So you ask why I love my Lord Jesus?
Well, friend, that's so easy to see
But the one thing that fills me with wonder is
Why Jesus loves someone like me~

Challenged

Post by B.J.Morbitzer » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:48 pm

Challenged


Some say I am disabled,
But you know that isn't true.
I simply have a challenge
A little different from you.

My slight inconvenience has taught me things
They could not know.
Each obstacle is a victory,
Enabling me to grow.

I'm not really any different.
I cry. I laugh.
I don't want to be treated
As if I'm not a person anymore.

Out of good intentions,
People are afraid to let me try.
But sometimes I have to fall,
And sometimes I need to cry.

God gives me the strength and dignity
And the courage to be all I can be.
For He doesn't see me as disabled,
He just sees me as me.

So Little Time

Post by B.J.Morbitzer » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:55 pm

~So Little Time~

So little time to say things
You would really like to say.
Before you even find the words,
The time just slips away.

So little time to do the things
You feel that you must do.
So treasure, like the purest gold,
The time God's given you.

So little time to dream your dreams
For youth has passed its prime;
And all too soon you realize,
That there's so little time.

So little time to reach the height
To which you've bound to climb;
For swiftly pass the years,
And there's so little time.

So little time to pass regrets;
And less, to make amends.
Yet God can heal the deepest wounds
In chosen, cherished friends.

So little time to share God's love
And beauty here on Earth;
And know, before His endless time,
Their meaning and true worth.

Oh, yes, there is so little time
To seek the hidden door
That opens up to heaven's time
Where time's forever more.

May You Always Have An Angel

Post by B.J.Morbitzer » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:58 pm

~May You Always Have An Angel~

May you always have an angel by your side
Watching out for you in all the things you do,
Reminding you to keep believing in brighter days and
Finding ways for your wishes
And dreams to take you to beautiful places;
Giving you hope that is as certain as the sun,
Giving you strength of serenity as your guide.
May you always have love and comfort and courage.
And may you always have an angel by your side.

May you always have an angel by your side.
Someone there to catch you if you fall,
Encouraging your dreams,
Inspiring your happiness,
Holding your hand and helping you through it all.
In all of our days past or present,
Our lives are always changing;
Tears come along as well as a smile
Along the roads you travel.
May the miles be a thousand more lovely than lonely.
May they give you the kind of gifts that never ever end;
Someone wonderful to love
And a dear friend in whom to confide.
May you always have rainbows
After each and every storm;
May you have hopes and dreams
To keep you warm and cozy,
And may you always have an angel by your side.

Sometimes People Come Into Your Life

Post by B.J.Morbitzer » Sun Mar 11, 2012 7:05 pm

~Sometimes People Come Into Your Life~

Sometimes people come into your life and you know
Right away that they were meant to be there, to serve
Some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help
You figure out who you are or who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be – a roommate, a
Neighbor, a professor , a friend, a lover, or even a
Complete stranger – but when you lock eyes with them,
You know at that very moment they will affect your
Life in some profound way.

Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible,
Painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you
Find that without overcoming those obstacles you would
Have never realized your potential, strength,
Willpower, or heart

Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness,
And sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of
Your soul, Without these small tests, whatever they
May be, life would be like a smoothly paved straight
Flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and
Comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life, and the
Success and downfalls you experience, help to create
Who you are and who you become. Even the bad
Experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are
Sometimes the most important ones.

If someone loves you, give love back to them in
Whatever way you can, not only because they love you,
But because in a way, they are teaching you to love
And how to open your heart and eyes to things.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your
Heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn
About trust and the importance of being cautious to
Whom you open your heart.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take
From those moments everything that you possibly can
For you may never be able to experience it again. Talk
To people that you have never talked to before, and
Listen to what they have to say.

Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your
Sights high. Hold your head up because you have every
Right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and
Believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in
Yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in
You.

You can make anything you wish of your life. Create
Your own life and then go out and live it with
Absolutely no regrets.

And if you love someone tell them, for you never know
What tomorrow may have in store.

Learn a lesson in life each day that you live! Today
is the tomorrow you were worried about yesterday. Was
it worth it?

~A SOLDIERS PRAYER~


Look God: I have never spoken to you,
But now I want to say,
"How do you do."

You see God,
They told me you did not exist;
And, like a fool,
I believed all of this.

Last night from a shell hole
I saw your sky;
I figured right then
They had told me a lie.
Had I taken the time
To see the things you made,


I wonder, God,
If you would shake my hand;
Somehow, I feel
That you will understand.
Strange, I had to come
To this hellish place
Before I had time to see your face.

Well, I guess there isn't
Much more to say,
But I am sure glad, God,
I met you today.

I guess the zero hour
Will soon be here,
But I am not afraid
Since I know you are near.

The signal - well, God,
I will have to go;
I love you lots,
This I want you to know.

Looks like this will be
A horrible fire fight;
Who knows, I may come
To your house tonight.

Though I wasn't friendly
With you before,
I wonder, God,
If you would wait at the door.

Look, I am crying,
Me shedding tears!
I wish I had known you
These many years.

Well, I have to go now, God.
Goodbye
Strange, since I met you,
I am not afraid to die.
