STARTING OVER

 

I feel the tension mounting,
 every second of every day.
The stress overwhelms me,
and nothing goes my way.
I lost my favorite job,
and my options are very few.
I lost my best friend,
what am I going to do?
Starting over was never easy, 
it never was meant to be.
It's always a time of learning,
and not a time of harmony.
My bills keep piling,
and all my cupboards are bare.
I reached out to others,
but no one really cares.
I lost another car,
and all my possessions too.
Here I am starting over,
at the age of sixty-two
Starting over was never easy,
it never was meant to be.
It's always a time of learning,
and not a time of harmony.
So I fix my eyes on Jesus,
I know he's always near.
He can take away my sorrows,
and cast away my fears.
I place my hope in Jesus,
even when life looks grim.
He promised to help me,
I know I can trust him.

For all the cards and gifts, that came my way.

For all the times you called, you brighten my day.

For all the laughs, chats and the times we prayed.

For all those times we shared back then.

THANKS FOR BEING MY FRIEND

For all the home cooked meals you shared.

For all the notes you wrote, to say you cared.

For all the kindness and compassion you've shown.

For all the times you made me feel right at home.

For all those times we shared back then.

THANKS FOR BEING MY FRIEND

For all the holidays, anniversaries and birthdays too.

For all the trips to church, I was always with you.

For all the doctor visits, dining and shopping at a store.

The times we put up a Christmas tree and so much more.

For all those times we shared back then.

THANKS FOR BEING MY FRIEND.

I WILL REMEMBER YOU

 

So many days have come and gone.
But the memories of you is still strong.
From the first day when we just met.
To the last day I will never forget.
You're the most caring person I ever knew.
I will remember you.
I look through the photographs and see.
How wonderful it use to be.
All the things we use to do.
All the places we went to.
Our love for each other grew.
I will remember you.
Day and night I see your face.
Moments of love you can't erase.
We became best friends.
Our love seem to have no end.
Until God called you home. 
I will remember you.

OUR AWESOME GOD

 

God filled the darkness with a starry light.
He created the stars to glow at night.
He created the sun and the day had begun.
He created the earth to orbit the sun.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

It was almighty God who created the land.
He filled it with trees, flowers and sand.
He filled the earth with plenty of water.
And all the fish he created right after.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

It was almighty God who created the sky.
He filled it with all kinds of birds to fly.
He created all the animals one by one.
God saw it was good, but he wasn't done.
Till God said let us make ourselves a man.
He created all of us according to his plan.
How did God create this beautiful sight?

When almighty God spoke, this all came to be.
By his own words, he created this beauty.
So take a moment and look around and see.
OUR AWESOME GOD created it for you and me.

GOD'S OWN WORDS

 

I stand on the promises of your spoken word.
Etched in my mind are the bible verses I've heard.
I know in my heart that you hear my prayer.
I believe you love me and you'll always be there.
I study the very words that you promised to do.
I know and believe that your words is always true.
So I can read the bible in times of uncertainty.
Because the author is God and he is trustworthy.

PLAY IT FOR CJ

 

All the times you helped me.

All the times you shared.

All the things you did for me.

You showed you really cared.

My times with you I treasure,

more precious than real gold.

Those times we prayed together,

those memories I'll always hold.

My times with you were splendid,

I thank God every day.

Those memories keep me going,

they'll never fade away.

My times with you were special,

we were happy as can be.

Those times we ate together,

and also watched TV.

My times with you have ended,

it's so hard to say goodbye.

Till we meet again in heaven,

those memories will never die.

WE BELIEVE

 

There is hope, there is joy,
there's a reason to live.
There is love, there is peace,
that only he can give.
We have faith, we proclaim,
that Jesus is the one.
We are glad, we rejoice,
for the things he has done.
He's the best, he's the greatest,
he's the only one we need.
He is Jesus, he is Lord,
that's what we believe.
We will serve, we will worship,
we will thank the Lord every day.
We will sing, we will shout,
we will praise his holy name.
We will reach, we will teach,
we will preach the word of God.
That's our goal, that's our life,
that's the best thing we got.

 CJ


My heart aches every time I see.

The empty chair near the TV.

My best friend suddenly passed away.

Part of me died and I'm left astray.

I miss CJ, she was my best friend.

We had great times till the end.

I know God will call me home too.

Till we meet again, CJ, I LOVE YOU!

THE INNER LIGHT

 

There are four candles burning,

with a message for you to see.

You can learn the truth,

what life was meant to be.

The first candle proclaimed,

I am JOY that you need today.

But no one cares to listen,

so my flame has gone away.

The second candle was next,

I am PEACE to bring you harmony.

But they chose to hate instead,

so my flame has gone out of me.

The third candle said I am LOVE,

for those who are torn apart.

But they chose to ignore me,

I can no longer warm the heart.

I stood there in disbelief,

and wonder what this is about.

I didn't understand,

why the three flames would go out.

The fourth candle said there's time,

while my candle has some light.

I am HOPE that still flickers,

you can use me tonight.

So I took the candle of HOPE,

to light the other three.

The message was clear,

there's still hope inside of me.

When I lit each candle,

of JOY, PEACE, and LOVE.

I can get all three,

when I pray to GOD above.

A NEW BEGINNING

 

   There is a book titled, "THE BOOK OF LIFE"
Inside this book you'll find,
every word we said.
No matter if the words we speak are good or bad, 
 we cannot change it or erase it.
But as long as we are still alive,
the story isn't over.
There is a new chapter today.
It's a chapter titled, A NEW BEGINNING"
We start on a new page in our life.
There is a empty space,
that needs to be filled.
This page is reserved for you.
Will you join me in this next chapter?
Let's start by using words,
about love and forgiveness.
Let's show everyone,
 we are a loving and caring people.
Let's proclaim today 
we love God and we love others.
