Childhood


Just a little wooden hut
Where for hours it seemed,
Laid on its corrugated roof,
I read, and dreamed my dreams.
It was for me
My special place
As though suspended
In time and space.
Over the blacksmith scrap heap,
Alongside the churchyard fence,
I could climb quietly up into
My little world of pretence.

A solitary child,
Mainly by choice,
I lay there secretly
Not making any noise.
I could listen to the sounds
Of any usual day
Feel secure as I pretended
I was alone and far away.
For long special hours
Nobody knew where I´d been
And then I got careless,
Made a noise, and was seen.

After that discovery
It was never quite the same
And I soon stopped playing
My special little game.
A lesson we all learn
As we all have to move on
But we keep the memories
Of the childhood that´s gone.
More than seventy years later
I´m pleased to say
In spite of a changing world
My little hut still stands today

That One Constant


As we recite the book rehearsing it pages. We reflect upon the vissisitudes of our lives and how much has changed throughout the ages. That one constant remains unchanged illuminating the way. Laa E*laaha illalah Muhammad dur Rasullulah.

Holy Spirit


Come Holy Spirit come whisper to me
Come Holy Spirit your fire we need

Come Spirit flow like a rushing wind
The blood of Christ is flowing for our brokeness and sin

Come the river of life is flowing like the rivers
come dear Spiirt as we draw nither

Come dear Jesus and rain over us your flock
our confident Savior and too our rock

The Holy Spirit is coming into this place
touching all of the human race

Come sweet Spirit with your awesome power
setting us free and helping the needy this hour

So we thank the Holy Spirit for teaching
for His compassion is ever reaching

Flow Christ flow as we flow into your streams
thank you also for entering our dreams!

21/1/2022

Love Michelle Lee Carter

Reaching Forward


Let those of us who are mature,
Anything you think otherwise;
God will reveal what is obscure,
That will open up our eyes.

Only let us hold what is true,
Whereto of that we have attained;
Let us walk the same we construe,
In the wisdom we have obtained.

Join in by imitating me,
And keep your eyes on those who walk;
As an example as you see,
Listen carefully how to talk.

Many of whom have often told,
And now tell you even with tears;
Walking with the cross as so bold,
That our enemy has fears.

Enemies of the cross of Christ,
As their end will be destruction;
Because their god has been enticed,
By their lusts of a seduction.

For they glory is in their shame,
With their minds set on earthly things;
Their lifestyle is set on fame,
And as to what a pleasure brings.

Citizenship is in Heaven,
From it we await a Savior;
For what the Father has given,
As He looks on us with favor.

Christ will transform our vile,
Lowly body to glorious;
For a spiritual lifestyle,
Knowing He will be victorious.

Still Alone Without You


I long to see your face again
to hear you whisper in my ear.
I long to walk along the creek
Knowing that it's you I seek.
My love for you is never ending
Love to Heaven I am sending.
My life goes on from day to day
Mundane and purposeless
Without your love to see me through
There is nothing I want to do.

I could just sit and stare for hours
Not a thought of man or flowers.
Just void and emptiness within
No heart to feel or thoughts to give
My life it died upon that day,
The day they took you far away.
I'm a lost soul, no one who cares
Or wonder why I'm sitting there.

No Direction


No Direction

We have lost our direction
truth always concealed
searching for answers…
never knowing what is real?
We are all being directed
by those claiming they know
but what is the real truth…?
from what seed does it grow?
So many are suffering
they have nowhere to turn
answers become questions
but still no one learns.
The whole world is crying
but still we hear lies
we pay our green taxes
yet still our bills rise?
There is no clear direction
the paths are well trod
now the whole world is talking
and all want to play God.
Where is the goodness
which gave humanity its name?
Where life had true virtues
and we understood life’s pain.
