Increase Love’s True Grit

Be the best you can be;
It’s all you can do;
Put yourself in ,
Another one’s shoes.

Re step your reasons,
Your where and your why;
Only then will you begin to
Grow wings and fly;

Pain is a process,
Letdown a game,
For inside each one of us,
We’re all made the same.

Once we embrace this,
And dance through our trials,
Life will have meaning,
We’ll endure it with smiles.

Heartbreak is a part of
This challenge and course,
If we clear all our hurdles,
We’ll break every curse.

So next time a crisis,
Of loss and grief hit,
Don’t believe the illusion,
Increase love’s true grit.

Dedicated to my daughter Celby.  May we live by her example of love and light.

 

Life’s Meaning

 

I have felt pressure,
I have known pain;

The darkening sun,
The advancement of rain;

Meaning of Life

 

The drops of doubt,
The sting of fear;

The awful regrets,
The loss of ones dear;

And I have wondered,
The reasons why;

The pangs of pain sting,
And the woes of hearts cry;

But then I remembered,
The awakening within;

The dawning of love,
The forgiveness of sin;

And I came to accept,
And to understand;

That all of our days,
Are held in God’s hands;

The good and the bad,
The struggles, the strife;

Are all building blocks,
A composite of life;

For it is the passions,
The pains, the chagrin;

That have made me seek light,
To find hope once again!
