May Days

Oh, how I love May
Isn't it a sweet month?
The earth is unfolding in it's
Beautiful green finery

And Flowers are blooming at
Mother Natures Throne 
My heart sings with joy for May
I have so many dreams and aspirations for the coming months.
As a child I remember the celebration of May
May Day. . .we danced and sang and braided the May Pole,
Do you remember the May Pole?
Next weekend we celebrate Mother's Day
I think it is appropriate that Mother's Day should come in May
With the renewing of the Springtime birth of the Earth
What better time to celebrate Motherhood.
The most tender of callings, the most cherished of life work
The crowing nobility of Womanhood is
Beautiful, Beautiful May Days. . .God bless you!

A Time For Every Season

There is a time for every season under heaven.  
My heart is full of sadness tonight.  
One event two people.
The cycle of life.
My friend is experiencing the worst 
Night mare a parent could experience.
The lose of a child. An adult child.
My heart aches for her as I have witnessed her
Suffering and her pain.
With my deep faith in God, I still tremble when
Something like this happens.  Oh, why, oh why?
But, I know that the great God of this Universe
Knows the "whys". . .He know ALL.
And He know her broken heart, he will heal
He will mend. There is no question about that.

A Great-Grandpa is dying. . His journey is complete
His loss will be profound, and he will be missed.
Tears are shed, good-byes are said.
At the edge of his night the beauty of death is evident.
A long life. . .A loving family. . Dear friends.
All part of the journey of Life.

So at the end of the day and in the quiet of my home.
I bow my head, and ask for mercy and love.
I thankfully ask the Lord for His tender mercies to be
Upon me and my family.  
May His strength be my mantle.
May I firmly stand on His sure foundation.
May I trust in His wisdom and 
May I know that He Is God.

If I had never suffered pain and heartache 
How could I know of His tender love
And His Power to Heal and Make whole again.
