never give up

We cannot choose what life gives us , but we can
Choose how to live our lives.
We can choose spiritual or material.
Choosing material we have to cheat , lie , and connive
To achieve our goals,
Choosing spiritual we leave everything in the hands of GOD
But we tend to forget that GOD said : “help yourself
And I will help you “
So why not get the best of both worlds and set your goals in life
And strive to achieve them with the help of the LORD.
Tell him your goal for the day and ask him to help you attain it.
“ NEVER GIVE UP “ on yourself and definitely never
Give up on GOD.
Everything comes in his time , not ours.
Success is a slow painful learning experience , so you can know
What to do when a particular situation arises.
We can achieve the material things without having to cheat ,
Lie and connive and hurting people along the way so you
Can have some better days.
We have to be thankful for the basic things in life , such as Health
Which is the most important of all , because we then get bitter and angry
With everything .as long as we have a roof over our heads , clothes on our backs
And food to eat and water to drink .
We’ll be fine , it just takes a little time.
Just remember “ NEVER GIVE UP “ and maybe share our good fortune with others.

the search

I did some soul searching the other day

And I asked GOD to come my way.
I asked him to harden my heart
Because these emotions were tearing me apart.

Every time I see or read about a child abused
I want to jump on them, but it’s of no use.
It seems that at times the law is on their side
And it just makes me want to cry.

So many injustices that I see, but no one
There to help, except maybe you and me.
If we could find a way to save all
these little angels that GOD has given
And to make life worth living.

To give hope to the children of the world
Is something that many of us struggle to see
But we know “ that will never be”.

So if we could save just a few
of these boys and girls
It may be the start of a brand new world.

If we could make a global holiday
Called “save a child today”.
Which is just a thought until
There’s a better way.
If each county and town in every country
could adopt one child
Then there lives would be worth while.

But I guess it’s not really that I want
My heart hardened
but just a solution
To a crisis that this world refuses to see

a fathers torment

·
A Fathers Torment
We hide in the shadows in obscurity
We are the fathers of the children that you see
Women are the life line, that we all know.
Since the beginning of conception and
Throughout our lives, we have to thank them
For becoming our mothers and our wives.
Men plant the seed, but on the woman’s
tube the children do feed.
Without the female there is no life
So as men we have to think twice.
At times though, we feel empty and forgotten
For all that we do in a child’s life.
When we play games with them, teach them
And give them moral support
It is something that is given, not something that is bought.
We will go back into the shadows when our hearts
Are about to burst, and this is what makes the pain so much worse.
They say that a man is not supposed to cry
But you and I know that’s an old fashioned lie.
We bleed, we cry, we feel heartache too
We are human, this is what we do.
Any man can be a father, but every man can not be a dad.
And I look upon that, and it makes me very sad.
This child has our blood and we helped to give it life
But there is no credit given to the husband, ” just the wife“.
We may be just the father, but we share in their lives too.
All we ask is recognition of the things that we do.
I recall at your birth, when I walked into the delivery room
Your eyes called me, like a mystical, magical tune.
Your eyes searched me out like a rooster for the rising sun
And looking in your eyes, I knew you was the one.
This is a fathers torment that I guess we all go through.
But without your love and dependence, what am I going to do.
I love you more than you’ll ever know
Look in my eyes, and there it will show.
And to your mother she must know:
The key number in this world is TWO, without me there is no you.

give me their strength

every day i pray to GOD to heal this affliction that i have
and i know there are so many people in much , much worse
condition than i .
but like most every day i get up and try-
( help yourself and i will help you )
and i know that much is true.
help me GOD as i struggle in this life , to try to be
a good man , a father , and a husband to my wife.
by thinking and writing i ease my pain
and since i’ve been doing this , my life has never
been the same.
i cannot help others if i cannot help myself
and on my problems i cannot dwell.
i’ve seen and read stories of people who have overcome
some with lost legs and have now begun to run.
hundreds of thousands of stories of people
who have been blessed , after being put through
a long and rigerous test.
GOD clear and strenghten my mind so that i can do the same
and write your poetry and praise and sing your name.
i may not have a physical disability the same as them
but i have so many words to write which never seem to end.
the stories are the stories that i write about who can
continue to get up and shout
” my GOD is my spirit and i will overcome
there are so many things that i’ve yet to be done.”
and with strength in their bones and love in their hearts
they finish what they did start.

what is a daughter

 

What is a daughter to me ?

I’ll tell you in one word “ LIFE “

Without someone’s daughter there

Would be no man !

!Why is it so difficult to understand !

It wouldn’t matter if they are straight or gay

God made us different in so many ways

She can cook , clean, take care of a house

Of that we have no doubt.

She becomes your soul mate , a wife , a lover and

Like her there is no other.

Then she gets pregnant and brings, new life

Into this world – and it matters not if it’s a boy or girl.

A mothers love will become endless , and there are

Np boundaries to the extent that they will go ,to protect them

this I know !

She is life in every form and not one to be scorned

They can be the Moodiest creatures on this earth

Especially after giving birth.

No matter who s daughter she may be

Her love is shown naturally.

JESUS i come to you

Jesus I come to you with my heart in my hand
Jesus I come to you because you understand
My heart is crying and broken in two and
I don’t know just what to do.
The world is changing and mankind has lost
Its feelings of love.
All they think of is the love of money and what it could bring
And they don’t care about any other thing.
They have lost compassion for their fellow man
And greed and hunger is their plan.
slavery has existed since the beginning of time
And rapes of children you will find.
Innocent animals are being slaughtered every day , some for food and many for pay.
No longer can you tell who your enemy is for they are
In civilian disguise and hide in their lies.
Why is it that man wants to seek power and try to be like you
If they had your powers , they still wouldn’t know what to do !
They would have to go into the hearts of man -and seek the love and compassion that “they could never understand.”
JESUS I come to you
As I had done since my birth , for you are my GOD
And have given my life worth.

the preacher girl

she was a little girl about seven or eight
Had a dream but couldn’t wait.
Said she been dreaming of this since she was two
And knew just what she had to do.
She felt the LORD in her soul –that to preach she was told.
She told her preacher what she felt inside
And it was something that she could not hide.
She would preach the gospel while in school
While other kids thought her “the fool “.
The preacher seeing the pain in her face said:
“You can preach in my place “.
He set up his pulpit with a wooden stand
So she could grab the mic with one hand.
When the congregation gathered to their dismay
She grabbed the mic and started to pray.
The sermon she gave left the people in awe
This had never been done before.
They all stood up and started to sing
Because the feelings this girl did bring.
The” hallelujah s “and” praise the Lord”
Was being sung like never before, as they walked out the doors.
She is just a little girl – but JESUS CHRIST filled her world.

a parents love

If you’re not a parent then you don’t know
The aches and pains that do not show.
When we see our child sick in bed
And so many thoughts go through your head.
When your child is in the hospital with 103
And by their side is where you want to be.

Recalling the first time that they ride a bike
And they fall and scrape their knee
And it seems they cry endlessly.

When you play with their imaginary friends
And it seems like it will never end.
then they go to pre-k
and for hours They have to stay.
Then they go to kindergarten and they
Meet children their same age
And it becomes fun and games.
Soon they’re out of elementary
And go to junior high
And then the aches and pains
Really begin to fly.
They already experienced their
First kiss, and possibly a sexual
Affair, and with you they will not share.
Soon it’s high school and college to follow
And you don’t see them for quite a while.
Then you get a call that they’re engaged
And you know your life has changed.
Then comes a marriage and a family
And a grandparent you will be.
But as a parent our love will never
Grow old, and this is something
That you are now told.
We are your parents and we will
Always be, we’ll love you now
And thru eternity.

ANGELS : do you believe

(10/3/14)

It was the first thing put on GODS list
So why do we question if angels exist?
They are his soldiers the guardians of earth
They have been here since humanities birth,
And since the world began giving GOD a helping hand.
Like everything in life it is a chain of command
That all of us should understand.
Not all who perish get their wings
You had to accomplish certain things
Trying to keep the commandments of GOD
No matter how difficult, no matter how hard.
Then there are the earthly angels who are always by your side
These are your teachers, they are your guides.
You’ve heard the expression “an angel was watching over you “
That is so very true.
They are with you until when the LORD decides
This is the last moment of your time.
If you still don’t believe in angels then that’s a shame
Because in their book they have your name!
Just like SANTA with his naughty and nice
This is the one who will take you to paradise.
Maybe we’ll meet on the other side
And you will tell me how you changed your mind.

from our father

He was sent to us from our father on high
To spill his blood for you and I.
MARY was chosen as the only one
To carry his begotten son.
Then he revealed to MARY and JOSEPH his intent
That this child would be heaven sent.
GOD’s angels spoke to each one
And told them what would be done.
From the moment that he was conceived
GOD’s steps he would achieve.
He started preaching at a very young age
The synagogues were his stage.
The rabbi s all stood in awe, as his words
Echoed throughout the floor.
A rabbi asked: how can he know as much as us, unless
In him the lord put his trust?
The road was paved as to what steps he would take
And the trials that he would pass, from the first to the last.
His miraculous feats became renowned
As the word spread from town to town.
From the blind to see, the deaf to hear
The mute to talk, and his walking on water
Changing water to wine – all of these were miracles divine.
The biggest miracle is yet to come
When GOD again will send down his son.
Nations will collapse and evil will fall
As the good will conquer all.
