inspiration

WILL YOUR ANCHOR HOLD?

Folder: 
OLDIE MOLDIE



will your anchor hold?

can it stand the test

of the rising tides?

never to drift

even when tempest rave

and the wild winds blow

is it safely moored

to remain firm

steadfast

in the storm of life?

How To Inspire Someone, Because I Did!!

I have never had the honor to help someone,

But I guess that I'm the one.

I actually have helped someone,

Through hard times,

By being a witness!



By being a witness,

You should just tell someone about God once.

And I promise you,

It will help.

Just be happy everyday,

And they will want to be just like you!!



That is how I inspired someone,

That person is special to me.

She should know that she would be,

With me always.



The person knows who she is,

Her name is Sadie.

Now Sadie you inspired me to be,

Something that I have never thought of.



That's how to inspire someone, because I did!!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is dedicated to Sadie, she is so specail to me.  I guess that everyone should be inspired, but I give all the thanks to God, for helping me to do that, and helping me be happy everyday, guess that is who I owe it all to, Thanks Sadie, love you lots, Sammy

WORDS OF A POET

They set your head reeling

With fanfare and feeling

They make you so

Giddy and gay

They bowl you right over

With heartaches so sober

You hide from the light

Of the day



Be they blessings or curses

Remember these verses

The words to this

Musical score

They hurt or they heal

But the lessons are real

And echo the truth

To the core

PIECES OF WISDOM

Wishes stand multiples

Pride stands alone and sad

Peace is for us to spread it

Love is for us to share.



Pain and sorrows are to transform us

Hopes are to bring us along more dreams

Faith is to keep us always together

Dreams are to bring us pieces of joy.



Wisdom is to make us better people

Peace is to fill us with inner glow

Truth is to bring us more light

Love is to give us the real joy.



Only God can transform us and give us life!

HEREAFTER

HEREAFTER WHERE ONCE

THERE WAS ONLY DEATH,

SOMEONE SPECIAL CAME

AND DIE FOR YOU AND ME.



HE WALKED THE DESERT,

AND ON THIS EARTH,

AND HE NEVER SINNED,

SINCE HE WAS THE SON OF GOD.



AND SO HE DIED

FOR YOU AND ME,

BUT LEFT US HIS SALVATION,

AND TO FOLLOW IN HIS FOOTSTEPS.



AS HE WENT BACK TO GOD

HIS FATHER,

FROM WHERE HE ONCE

HE ALSO CAME.



AND FOREVER SINCE THEN,

WE GOT A CHANCE,

TO LIVE IN HEAVEN WITH HIM

FOREVERMORE,



AND NEVER FROM THERE,

WE SHALL RETURN!

GOD SMILES

SUNRISE COMES OUT OF SUDDEN,

AND WITH IT DEPARTS THE NIGHT

AND I SEE YOUR SMILE AGAIN

WHEN I COME OUT AND SEE THE SUN.



THE WATER, THE WAVES AT SEA

BRINGS FORWARD THE LIGHT AROUND,

AND I SEE ALL THE LITTLE CHILDREN

AND HIM THAT SMILES KIND.



FLOWERS BLOOM EVERYWHERE UNDER

THE SUNSHINE,

AND WITH THEIR BEAUTY GRACE THE

EYES,

AND I SEE AGAIN THE GRIN

AND HIM JUST SMILES KIND.



RAIN POURS OUT TO MY DELIGHT,

AND RAINBOWS REFLECTING COLORS RIGHT

ACROSS THE BLUEST SKY,

AND I SEE AGAIN THAT GRIN,

AND HIM JUST SMILES KIND.



SUDDENLY THE NIGHT GOES AWAY,

DRAGGING WITH IT THE LAST FADING

LIGHTS,

AND BRINGS FORWARD THE HAPPY SUN

THAT GOES ON KISSING GOOD BYE,

THE NIGHT AWAY,

AND I SEE AGAIN THAT GRIN,

AND HIM STILL SMILES KIND.



THE MISTERIOUS MOON AND THE SILVERED

STARS,

WITH THE SUN AND HIS GOLDEN CROWN

THEY ALL DANCE AROUND AND PLAY TRIBUTE,

TO THEIR CREATOR, GOD.



AND I SEE  AGAIN THAT GRIN,

AND HIM JUST SMILES KIND,

AND I SEE  THEN  ANOTHER DAY,

AND  I SMILE BACK TO GOD!

HE DIED FOR US

YESTERDAY TO  TEARS,

I WAS SO MOVED,

WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT

JESUS CHRIST, DIED FOR YOU

AND ME TOO.



YESTERDAY TO TEARS I WAS

SO MOVED,

WHEN JESUS MY SAVIOR,

I REMEMBER, CAME TO SHED

HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD,

FOR YOU AND ME.



YESTERDAY TO TEARS I WAS

SO MOVED,

WHEN I RECALLED  SO WELL

THAT JESUS MY SAVIOR,

CAME TO GIVE US ALL,

HIS LIGHT  AND BRAND NEW

LIFE.



YESTERDAY TO TEARS,

I WAS SO MOVED,

BECAUSE I KNOW VERY WELL,

THAT JESUS MY SAVIOR AND KING,

LOVES THIS WORLD SO MUCH, AND

YOU AND ME,



THAT HE DIED FOR US,

SO WE COULD ALL FOREVER LIVE

ONE DAY WITH HIM,

AND ENJOY ALL THE REWARDS OF HEAVEN.

THE LAST SONG

Straight from Santa Cruz, just two dudes,

playing their music, changing the moods.

I loved each and every song they sang,

had to have a CD so we could hear the whole she-bang.



They sang about Aunt Lucy a 3 million year old hominid,

and like them I have to thank her for what she did.

For with out her we might not have all the afterthoughts,

and my god what would I do with out the shoes store bought.



Baseball Game is not what you would think,

it is all about just how we can go in just a blink.

So when you think things are stacked against you,

back up and knock one way out in the sky so blue.



3 Words made me think of things in my past,

the stalker that I am finally free from at last.

Just could not tell me when we were a couple way back then,

now he lives with that each and everyday,sometimes you just can't win.



But I have to say that my favorite was about a dog,

that lives in a one room house,this had a nice dialogue.

Was just the funniest thing I have heard in a while,

I tell you these boys have a real cool style.



But the song that got to me, was the very last song.

They sang it acappella, it was so sad, don't get me wrong.

It was a great thing to end the show with, sold us on a CD,

they signed with no problem, they are talented I know you would agree.



To end the show with a song about Vietnam, that was a tear jerker,

sent to fight a war still not understood. And do we still remember?

A Wall of names is all that is left of this horrible thing,

in my mind I will hear this song, the sounds of war will ring.








Author's Notes/Comments: 

this is about a couple of guys that I went to hear tonight at Barnes and Noble... they were great... their music was just awesome.... hope that I get the chance to hear them again...

thank you Geoffrey Rutledge and John Tindel for a most enjoyable evening.... may god bless you

Contradictions of the Soul

Why does the human heart wander?



Why does it bounce from one to another?



If you can't make up your mind then why try?



Do you have a mind?







Does the heart have a mind of its own?



It must because it certainly doesn't listen to the one it's connected to,



Although it should. The mind knows better,



Keeps you from fickle and frattle and makes sense of things.





So why won't the heart listen?



Because it knows the mind wants it to listen,



Knows the mind knows better....and is jealous.





A jealous heart only does you no good.



So why jealous heart should you wander?



And the heart answers, "The same reason as you."
