Christmas Bells #4 . . . . A Christmas Star!






A bright Christmas star
sits high on a tree
shining its light
for the whole world to see

reminding us all
of a night long ago
when a star in the sky
guided wise men below

to a small town stable
where a gift from above
was born on that night
to bring the world love.

The light from the star
shone down on a child
asleep in the manger
so meek and so mild.

Shepherds and wise men
who came to draw near
then spread the good news
that the savior is here.

Now the Christmas tree star
still leads us today
to the birth of a miracle
that first Christmas day.

Every good and perfect gift is from above



“Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly
lights, who does not change like shifting shadows”


~ Bible(James 1:17).

One Easter Day, when sap was stirring twigs to the core;


I watched a blackbird on a budding sycamore
One Easter Day, when sap was stirring twigs to the core;
I saw his tongue, and crocus-coloured bill
Parting and closing as he turned his trill;
Then he flew down, seized on a stem of hay,
And upped to where his building scheme was under way,
As if so sure a nest was never shaped on spray.

Lenten Thoughts #3





“Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world,
what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”

Sunday reflection . . . .You have searched me, Lord

You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

– Psalm 139
