WHAT IF TODAY WAS YOUR LAST DAY? WOULD YOU BE A BETTER PERSON?

If we all tried to live like every day was our last day, would the world be a better place? Just a thought!

LAST DAY

Last Day!

If this was your last day on earth
How would you want to live?
Would you stop taking all you could
And only try to give?

If this was your last day on earth
Would you forgive your foes?
Would you drop meanness from your heart
And see how far love goes?

If this was your last day on earth
Do you think you would speak?
Would you help others who are down
And save them from their weak?

If this was your last day on earth
Would you make your wrongs right?
Would you let other people know
That love is God’s true light?

This could be your last day on earth
So why waste it on hate?
Do good and when you’re called above
You’ll find an opened gate!

LET THE SEASON BEGIN!

This time of year is magical. It gives us hope and renews our faith. However, for some, it also brings on a deep inner sadness. I think that most of us experience the highs and lows of the holiday season. I also think that for some, the sadness is overwhelming. It is important for us to be aware of those around us and to try and reach out to help those in need. It is just as important to be aware of how you are feeling, and if you need help, let those around you know. After all, we are in this together and together, we can do anything.

Stockings & Bows

As we begin to decorate
Hang stockings and red bows,
Please keep in mind that many folks
Are dealing with some lows!

Though Christmastime is filled with joy
It’s also filled with tears,
For in our mind, it brings about
The changes of past years!

The couple you saw buying toys
Two children by their side,
Are barely hanging on right now
Last year, their baby died!

The man who asked you for some help
So he can make ends meet,
Does not want presents for his kids
He just wants them to eat!

The woman you saw in the store
Whose actions made you mad,
Is dealing with her husband’s death
And kids, that have no dad!

The family who sat down to eat
And chose to say a prayer,
Now fill a plate with memories
To set by grandma’s chair!

The child you saw throw a fit
And thought, “He is not right,”
Is dealing with his first real loss
His puppy died last night!

So as we start to decorate
Hang stockings and red bows,
We need to say a loving prayer
To help folks through their lows!

For Christmas is a wondrous time
That’s filled with love and light,
A time to honor His great gift
And do all that is right!

With joyous hope and Yuletide cheer
Let this great season start,
But keep in mind that some folks need
A blessing from our heart!

My Angel Dad!

My dad died when I was nineteen. His death almost destroyed me. However, as the years went by, I realized how blessed I was, and still am, because my dad is my Guardian Angel. He watches over me and protects me. There have been instances in my life that I could feel his presence, of this I am sure. These words came from my heart because of my Angel dad. In my heart, he has spoken these words to me.

ME & DAD

When Heaven Called

When Heaven called to take me home
You cried sweet tears for me,
I was so sick, without a cure
So He helped set me free!

Though life was short, it was quite sweet
And yes, some times were bad,
But better times meant so much more
Because I lived some sad!

I know my death has caused you grief
But please just think of this,
When you arrive at Heaven’s door
I’ll greet you with a kiss!

For now you have to keep the faith
And know within your heart,
That even though you can’t see me
We’re never far apart!

With angel wings my soul flies high
I keep watch over you,
And deep within your loving heart
You know this to be true!

You’re never far away from me
I’m with you when you cry,
And when you go to sleep at night
I wipe your teardrops dry!

On certain days you feel a sense
A warmth just known by few,
It’s something that is Heaven sent
A hug from me to you!

When Heaven called to take me home
Please know the time was right,
At peace, I went to be with Him
My darkness turned to light!
