Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,

Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.�

The Simplicity of Love

Love is a pain that will not stray
. I live in a day that will not end,
The life of a friend is taken away
.I live in doubt of a lot of things
but yet I know I will send.
The love of my life my everlasting light
I would give my life for her someday
I love her dearly to fear the day she might
To love her more is life no more
to this I say even if I stray
My sister is my joy, to God I plea
Do not take this gentle soul away.
Her life like mine a second a day to this God, I agree
Do not tempt me to take action I live to disobey.
If you know me stay away from my joy of everyday
If you tempt me hear keep away or you will pay.

The Deadly Tongue

Tongues rattle, like the chains across
a fallow'd grave yard, saying nothing,
meaning nothing. Sitting in Earth's
hallow, listening to the expression
less, pretentious accents, flowing
without wisdom. Slighting the lover.
How to free the pain, to restore life
unto the softly spoken lyric. Ah, can
this be the true secret of the never
ending, flowing nature of happiness

Above The Stars

Above the stars, there is
a place where no man lives.
A place that only God knows
. A place where some people
think we go after death, but
how do we know if this is true
Some philosophers try to tell
of a place in between Heaven
and Hell, but to tell you the
truth, there is not, never has
been and never will be, such a
place. Study the word of God,
and you will see, that in death,
there is no in between

In Time Of Great Thanks

In this time of great thanks, do we
think of the right person? When we
tell someone thank you, do we really
mean it, or are we just saying it, so
we don't hurt their feelings? Even in
times of great depression, people buy
things they know they can't afford,
but some people do this out of pure
kindness. So, the next time you can't
afford to buy something, that someone
really wants, just think of Jesus, and
what He would tell you to do, then pray,
and if it is something you can do, then
give with love, as Jesus gives to us
so lovingly

You cared for me when times
got bad, and even when you were
mad. You told me to treat people
right, and not to hug to tight. You
said you will never stop caring, or
stop me from being daring. You
loved me with all your heart, even
when I was a Little tart. So that is
why I love you much, because of your
gentle touch. Thanks Mom.

Power Of The Enemies Savage Beast

Morning has arrived, another day
of long lost forbidden thoughts,
tearing at the soul.
Again we see the savage beasts, running
thru our streets, threatning all who
dare look their way.
And we the young, watch the destruction
of our schools, the quiet solitude
of study, diminish.
\These enemies, with gun in hand, the
slightest, word, blink or action, may
send them in a rage.
\How to mend these violent acts, is there
an explanation for this plague, or must
we wait, til' this earth is dust again.

The Difference

I got up early one morning and rushed
right into the day. I had so much to
accomplish, that I didn't have time to
play. Problems just tumbled about me
and heavier came each task;
Why doesn't God help me? I wondered,
He said, But you didn't ask
. I wanted to see joy and beauty, but
the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why God didn't show me,
He said, But you didn't seek.
I tried to come into God's presence:
I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
My child, you didn't knock.
I woke up early this morning and
paused before ent'ring the day,
realizing, that I had to take
Time to Pray.
