"A Perfect Day"

Friday had been the saddest day
That my young life had ever known
The loneliness that my heart felt
Just would not leave me alone

The clouds that filled the afternoon
With their darkness and their dread
Left remorseful feelings alive inside
Along with feelings that seemed so dead

On Saturday when I did awaken
My world was much worse it seemed
For the gloom and darkness it embraced
Left my mind aloof in sad daydreams

Of what my eyes had seen to transpire
On that dark, cold Friday afternoon
I only prayed and hope what was written
Would come to fruition so very soon

As the last twenty four hours ticked away
The hope in my heart did begin to rise
For it began to beat so steady again
Waiting for the prophesied moment to arrive

But many in the room praying around me
Saw their faith begin to slip and fade
Not believing that what was happening
Would be much more than just another day

My heart awaiting the time to come closer
Anticipating the joy it would soon receive
Felt the rhythms of the approaching moment
For deep within it never failed to believe

I heard the most beautiful melodies
Embracing me from within His tomb
And upon hearing the hearty voices of angels
I knew that He would be rising soon

And the last twenty four hours did finally end
Sweeping my sadness and loneliness away
Replacing it with pure joy, and happiness
For He rose from the grave on a perfect day

"Food For Thought"

When we begin our day we can change its complexion if we feed our spirits the word of the living God! I usually start my day with a Psalm.  Today is the 15th so it is Psalm 15 and i will also read Proverbs chapter 15.  I will read them when i rise and before i lay down to rest!  After the 30th or 31st day, with The book of Psalms i would continue for example if the month has 31 days i will start the new month with the 32nd Psalm and continue on for the next few months until i have read them all and then i would start anew.  With the book of proverbs i will go back to the first each month!  Reading the Psalms of David and the Wisdom of Solomon, you will find nothing has changed in the world and it will make you reflect on change in yourself and make wisdom and understanding your brother or sister!

Psalm 15  (NIV-2011)

LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
who may live on your Holy mountain?

The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is rightous,
who speaks the truth from the heart;
whose tongue utters no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the LORD;
and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.

I Always Shared Your Love

I saw openings in the sky above me
And within I saw a tranquil sea
I couldn’t believe its heavenly beauty
I wondered why it was happening to me

To describe what I saw would be useless
For it was far beyond my mind’s words
And I was left utterly speechless
By the melodies my ears had heard

I was lifted by My God’s Spirit
Far away into heavenly skies
I tasted of the paradise promised
And its overwhelming natural high

I found myself drowning in His tranquil sea
Eating the ecstasies of His paradise above
And I knew at that moment as never before
That I was always a part of His tender love

"My One True Love"

My heart does deeply long for you
When it finds you are not close by
I Search the world around me
And even heavenly skies so high

For moments shared with your loving touch
That you often place deep inside
Can make lonely times pass by quickly
Making a once sad heart to come alive

Though some may think I am very weak
As I do seek your love everyday
But to me your love is so valuable
A true treasure I want always to stay

Without its sweet loving essence
And the rich joy it does bring inside
The moments I find would be so lonely
If my one true love is not by my side.

Your song of life
does touch my heart,
as Your word caresses
my ears…

And my doubts have
now been gently
erased,  as have so
many of my fears

And the melody
that accompanies
them, does make
a home deep within
my soul…

For Your melody
brings my face
to smile,  and I
want this to continue so

For I know it has the
nourishment, the
food for thought
that I do need

And I praise You
Lord, my Father
in heaven, with
song unto your name

For You took the
time to bless me,
so cannot I also do
the same

Lifting up a sweet song
with joyous praise,
embracing the living
power in Your sweet
