Merry Christmas (1984)

That time of year
Has come to all.
To have some cheer,
And a time to recall.
To remember the birth
Of God’s only Son.
He came to the earth
As the only perfect one.
Jesus was His name,
And the star was bright.
With no warmth of a flame,
He was born at midnight.
They all went to see
And give gifts to Him.
They left so quietly,
With nothing in return to them.
For they felt the love
He had to share.
He came from above,
Where they all care.
And I know I do
Without any kind of fear
Because I love You.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

God Leads the Way

Journeys can be so long, so enduring,
taking turns and continuing on.
Spirits can become so weary.
Strength can seem to be gone.
Paths appear all along the way.
The signs are tangled in brush.
The briers, thorns, and thistles
are each so lush.
Yet somehow God allows the soul
to sense that discreet sign
that clearly defines God’s direction.
He is able to lead the blind.God
Strengthening that weary soul,
He embraces them so dear.
Peace floods the barren soul
with assurance God is here.
Walking along with Him
the journey continues on
with God leading the way
to His only begotten Son.
