Seventh day in the Octave of Christmas, December 31 – Reading

"If I Should not Wake Up in the Morning"


~In Dedication to my sister, Sharon, who died on 23 March, of this year, after a
long battle, with cancer. Though the disease conquered her body, it could never
conquer her incredibly Brave and Beautiful Spirit.
On Christmas Day, of this year,
her husband, David, completed his earthly Journey,
joining his wife, and long-time companion, of many years.
May God comfort those who mourn...
~We Remember Sharon and David...We Remember!

<<+>>
 
~If I should not wake up in the morning
Remember that I love you.
 
As the Morning Sun
Streams through the window
I will be in every ray.

As you walk along an empty beach
With seemingly just the sound 
Of the Surf for company
It will be saying;
"I am here."

In the Midst of the greatest Storm
With a Hurricane Force wind blowing
It will be shouting;
"I am with you, Always.

In the Darkness of the Night
When you are sleeping
And your slumber is disturbed
By a sound, that you are not sure
That you really did hear
It is only me Whispering-
That I am Near.

Remember this,
If I should not wake up one morning.

"Envoy"

Go, little book,
out of the house and into the world,

carriage made of paper rolling toward town
bearing a single passenger
beyond the reach of this jittery pen
and far from the desk and the nosy gooseneck lamp.

it is time to decamp,
put on the jacket and venture outside,
time to be regarded by other eyes,
bound to be held in foreign hands.

so off you go, infants of the brain,
with a wave and some bits of fatherly advice:

stay out as late as you like,
don't bother to call or write,
and talk to as many strangers as you can.

"Waterfall"


~I've known rivers
 ancient as the world and older than the flow of blood in human veins.
My Soul has grown deep like the Rivers.
~Langston Hughes


       Going beyond fear begins when we examine our fear; our anxiety, nervousness, concern, and restlessness.  If we look into our fear, if we look beneath the veneer, the first thing we find is sadness, beneath the nervousness.  Nervousness is cranking up, vibrating all the time.  When we slow down, when we relax with our fear, we find sadness, which is calm and gentle. Sadness hits you in the Heart, and your body produces a Tear.  Before you cry, there is a feeling  in your chest and then, after that, you produce tears in your eyes. You are about to produce Rain or a Waterfall in your eyes and you feel sad and lonely and perhaps romantic at the same time.  That is the first tip of fearlessness, and the first sign of real warriorship.  You might think that, when you experience fearlessness, you will hear the opening to Beethoven's Fifth Symphony or see a great explosion in the sky, but it doesn't happen that way. Discovering fearlessness comes from working with the Softness of the human Heart.

" How Deep the Father's Love for Us"



~How deep the Father's Love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.

How great the Pain of searing Loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many Souls to Glory.

Behold the man upon a Cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His Dying breath has brought me Life
I know that it is Finished.

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His Death and Resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward?
I can not give an answer
But this I know with all my Heart
His wounds have paid my ransom.

~Yes, this I know with all my Heart...
His wounds have paid my ransom.

"Friends"



~They

Laughed a little harder,

They cried a little softer,

They lived a little stronger,

Because they stood together...

Friends.
