Stay the course


Stay the course
because, if you fall, aside, and get out of step, you will have great remorse

Stay, the course, and stay on track
you gotta get your momentum,*motivation,*, and drive back

Maybe, your now, in a little lull
and your, not feeling so sharp, and are, kinda, dull

Just stay, patient, preservere,, and persist
make a plan, make a list

Just stay calm, focused, and on track
you will regain,, your momentum, and will get your motivation, right back

Stay the course
get back up,in the race, get back on your horse

When the going gets tough, the tough get a going
soon*, you *will* see, *your* progress* will* be *showing

So stay, the course, stay on the right track
there is a time, to rest, a, time to stand still, ,a time to move forward, and a time, to pick up the pace ,and *ATTACK

Misunderstood



Those of you with faith that is strong,
Must be patient when feeling weak;
So you do not start to go wrong,
By walking a dark path you seek.

Of ourselves we must not think,
We must think of others as well;
Offering someone else your drink,
Likewise a place for them to dwell.

We should all be showing concern,
By loving and showing you care
The more that you do, you will learn,
The more you are willing to share.

Be concerned about your neighbor,
Of his faith the good things to build;
Assisting him through his labor,
So leisure time is Spirit filled.

Only of Himself, Christ did not,
Think by putting just Himself first;
When a drink that anyone sought,
He gave them enough for their thirst.

Insults of those who will insult,
Causing to have fallen on Christ;
Shows hatred from verbal assault,
About what has been sacrificed.

All that was written long ago,
Was written onto us to teach;
To have the confidence to show,
To many others that we reach.

Encouragement and endurance,
Will be allowing you to live;
In harmony with confidence,
That enables you to forgive.

In harmony with each other,
As an ambassador for Christ;
Showing love to one another,
And willing to be sacrificed.

You will be having the same goal,
As you praise God our Father;
Letting His Spirit cleanse the soul,
As you laud Christ our Brother.

SNOW FELL OFTEN


Snow fell often, in those long ago days;
days of my youth, in the city by the river.
How enchanting the hours of a young heart,
the years when life held only magic and mystery.
We danced among the silvery flakes as lovers
with all abandon to reason and practicality.
Created angels in the soft powdery wonder,
wallowed in the cold hush of winter´s spirit´

warmed our hearts by the fires of affection,
cuddled closely, sharing our hopes and dreams.
And spoke amid the crackling fingers of the fire,
of love, life, and the pursuit of things beyond us.
We were children, dreamers still believing, lost
in the magical realm of winter´s gray kingdom.
Little princes and maidens, lost in wonder.

Years gone by, and it seems the snow no longer
falls as often as it once did, in the city by the river.
Now, a thousand memories past, here in the
warm winter days of these lone star realities,
my heart longs for the days of cold mystery,
nights watching stars reflected in icicles.
Snow fell often, in days of youth and promise,
in the city by the river, in the magic of winter.

´ Richard Keith Carlton

A PERFECT DAY


THE WARMING SUN. A HINT, SEA BREEZE. THE RYTHUM OF THE WAVES. SANDPIPER'S SING. AND DANCE ABOUT, PLAYING IN THE WATER. THE UMBRELLA'S SHADE. AN ICE COLD DRINK. YES, A PERFECT DAY.

CHOOSE WISELY




CHOOSE WISELY

She won`t be anyone`s fool
She`ll not be used as a tool,
The number three just isn`t fair
There`s only room for you and her.

You are just living a lie
What you`ve done makes her cry,
Your love she`s not prepared to share
Otherwise for you she cannot care.

`I Love You` should be said to one
If not, then she will be gone,
You must choose which road you take
Hope you don`t make another mistake.

Riddle of water


Riddle of the water
It swept away my friends young daughter
In a Flood that flashed as they do upon the plains
Riddle of water
Don't take away there daughter
She is there precious love
For life so precious should not go
Riddle of water
Please release her in Gods hands
Jesus I prey
That the riddle does not take there faith
Just one spring could cause such strife
And death is not the hope that we share
Riddle of water
The tide has washed her back to shore
And sad stories like this
Hold the faith that help will find them
And then there found when they were lost for a short while
The riddle of water is over and the family jumps for joy
For the daughters is found
Thank you Jesus for the sound

PAIN ON THE MOVE



First it was in the knees
Appointment for double knee surgery
standing on sidelines on crutches
Grandson went off tackle and I ran
86 yards down the sideline
with him waving touchdown signal
Double knee surgery canceled
Left the crutches on the sideline
Now that is a plus for exercise
Then the pain went from thigh to knee
Most of the pain being Arthritis
You need to be scheduled for Hip surgery
Found more arthritis further searching
Doc said it appears it is lower back Vertebrae were pointing out spikes So tomorrow scheduled for spinal shot
The shot in the belly for Cancer was female hormones
I am still waking up with hot flashes
Now they want to inject steroids
Avoid walking take up swimming
My stroke has become that of a beached whale
I think they are getting closer to my backside
I'm afraid to have a bowel movement
I'm thinking they think me a pain in the butt
Let you know how it all comes out
But if they start talking lobotomy
I'm taking up the offer of going swimming
If I don't drown it's back to upping the Tylenol
Can the fall I took when my leg gave out
and I passed out eliminate exercise helping?
I refuse to use old age and use a walker
I may start training for the decathlon
Tommorow is today looking for a spine to tap
