Loving good wishes are given to you
For many blessings in all you do.
May God’s love graciously on you pour,
Bringing you joy and so much more.
May you find contentment in the life you live,
Receive all the gifts God has to give,
And the love that’s abundantly offered to you,
Remember to offer to others too!

If everyone in the world
Could be more loving and caring,
There would be less selfishness
And more generosity and sharing.
If we could see God’s love
When we look at someone’s face,
There would be less judgment and hatred
And more of God’s mercy and grace.
If love could be our focus
And play a much greater part,
This would be a much better world
Where God shines in every heart.

Song of Christmas
The song of Christmas is a song of joy,
Filled with delight for each girl and boy,
A song of happiness filling the heart,
A joy in which all long to have a part.
The song of Christmas is a song of love,
Revealed when God sent his Son from above,
A love to be shared with family and friend,
A song of love that will never end.
The song of Christmas is a song of hope,
Of light for those who in darkness grope,
A hope for the end of grief and despair,
A song of mercy beyond compare.
The song of Christmas is a song of peace,
For selfishness, hatred and war to cease,
A peace that only Jesus could bring,
A peace that gives us a new song to sing.

With a heart that overflows
I give thanks, Lord, today
for the many blessings
you have sent my way.
Without you I am nothing.
I can’t make it on my own,
and I’m forever grateful
for the love that you have shown.
I thank you for your love
and the gift of your dear Son,
for your boundless grace and mercy
and all that you have done.
To you I give all glory
for all of life’s good things
and for the special joy
that loving you brings.

In autumn the leaves start changing
to colors rich and bright,
and soon they all
will begin to fall,
creating an artistic sight.
The green that in summer was seen
on the branches of every tree
has now turned to gold
and reds quite bold;
this change is delightful to see.
The exquisite beauty of nature
when leaves begin to die,
as vibrant shades abound,
covering the ground,
leads us to wonder why.
Why such a glorious tribute
to what is almost past?
Crackling leaves drying
in this season of dying;
their splendor cannot last.
Changes come into each life
in what has happened before.
Though all things must end,
on God you can depend
to bring beauty to life once more.

As the summer days start to fade away
It causes me to remember
Though summer’s song won’t be here for long,
What a lovely month is September!
In the glow of sunset I will not forget
The joys of the summer soon past,
And the sweet memory, time with family
Is something that’s sure to last.
Now that summer’s heat makes a slow retreat
As the month of September goes by,
I fondly recall how much I love fall
With a pleasure that I won’t deny.

When our way seems smooth
and the day is bright,
it’s easy to have faith
in God’s love and light.
But when the way grows rough
and the light is dim,
it’s much harder to keep
our faith in Him.
We need to remember
to focus our eyes
on the light of God’s love
and the ultimate prize.
As we travel through life’s obstacles
and every roadblock,
we can cling with assurance
to our faithful, strong Rock.
It is in our weakness
that God’s strength is most revealed,
and in times of danger
when He is our sure, strong shield.
As we release our fears
and seek God’s blessing from above,
we discover the great mercy
and fullness of God’s love.

God is the food for our spirits
On which we were created to feed.
As our souls are fed, we are lovingly led
As God supplies every need.
We won’t find peace apart from God
Because it is simply not there.
When we turn from sin and search for Him
We’ll discover His peace everywhere.
If we search for happiness elsewhere,
We’ll discover it is hard to find.
For a happier life freed from stress and strife
Only God offers true peace of mind.

Happy memories flit through my mind
Of people and places in the past,
And contemplating them I find
That time has sped by entirely too fast!
Little things that I can recall,
Memories that are precious and dear,
Events that may seem large or small
Are sometimes fuzzy while others are clear.
Memories linger of special faces,
Sweet recollections I’ve often sought
Of loving smiles and tender embraces,
Pleasant remembrances filling each thought.
Each little joy and every sorrow
Will soon be only a memory,
But by making the most of today and tomorrow
Those memories will be the best they can be!

In honor of April as National Poetry Month, Earth Day and the release of my new book about seasons, A Symphony of Seasons, I'd like to share this poem with you. Please click on the title link to read more about it and another excerpt, "Like Flowers in the Spring." Enjoy the beauty of spring, each of the seasons, music, and be blessed!
In spring the resurrection from winter’s cold tomb
Brings new life once again as flowers start to bloom.
All creation sings a joyous song of spring
As renewal of life brings fresh life to everything.
The earth’s crust is cracked by a hidden power,
And what emerges is a stem, leaf and flower.
The icy grave of winter where no life can be seen
Transforms into a vibrant, living carpet of green.
Fresh hope arrives with the springtime air
So our lives that once had seemed lifeless and bare,
Like the earth to which fresh life returns,
Can find the renewal for which the soul yearns.
Spring’s resurrection coincides with Easter too –
All life that has ended God is able to renew.
Christ conquered death, there’s no longer separation,
And we can join in singing the song of creation.
