As the sun sets behind the hills,
The silhouette of shadows begins to die;
Events of the day rush to my mind –
As faded moment of life drifts on by.
I just started the day, and now it’s gone!
Answers I need, but how can I find out?
To those that think they will live forever,
Someday reality will replace your doubt!
On the front porch – as the night calls,
Death patiently awaits its turn –
So I ask myself, “What is life all about?”
Is it only love that a heart must yearn –
Dear Lord! My troubled spirit is now well,
The scent of honeysuckles I love to smell!

Outside my window the sunlight dances
As the clouds pass by with mere glances;
For some reason I awoke at 5 A.M.
Whispers from God – it had to be Him!
“Life, it’s like a vapor in a moment of time,”
Yesterday are only memories that come to mind;
So I thought, troubles one should never dread,
Only the devil puts things like that in my head!
Life is like a spring of water that is so sweet –
Along with success we have to know defeat!
Life is not always lived on meadows of green,
And we should never let others steal our dream!
So I look at the sunlight through my window,
My spirit knows truth – that’s not an ‘innuendo!’

If the world should end today –
It’s the Lord I shall praise!
Not the things that rust and fade,
Nor foolish men lost in a haze!
Foolishness is gone in a moment
Like a frost on a winter’s day –
So, why listen to man’s nonsense
Or the satanic things they say?
Live life, don’t get lost in a maze,
And remember this thought today:
“God is the keeper of your soul,”
And foolish men desire no praise!
Know truth endures on life’s stage –
Only God knows the end of the age!

September! Now let summer wind down.
The geese prepare their journey soon
As I sit by the river’s edge. They don’t
Know I’m watching and wondering how
They know its time. My eyes trace the
Water as it makes it way to the sea. A deer
Is standing in the shadows, and I think
It is not me that you have to be afraid of.
September! A transformation of seasons,
A peaceful time
To remember the true meaning of life
And to realize why we are on this planet.
A time to renew one’s mind, and reflect
On how quickly time slips away.
O my enter voice what are you saying to
Me, have I forgotten how to live.
The leaves are beginning to turn brown,
And the air has a slight chill. The sun
Cast shadows upon the water, and the
Geese could care less of my troubled spirit.
O September! It’s love I need, I remember!

There are heartaches upon the path of life,
They are like leaves blowing in the wind;
Time makes no excuses for failure!
There will always be heartaches in this life,
And the fact that we are here brings strife!
So is it simply truth that we are seeking
To find wisdom, and to have understanding,
But understanding is hard to find –
We wonder why these thoughts come to mind.
Sometimes we just drift through this life
Like the leaves that are directed by the wind –
The wind blows, and it seems to be no end
Life! It’s only – make believe.
There are disappointments that come in life,
They are hidden like a summer breeze,
And they are as sad as a cloudy day!
But life goes on like a winding river drifting;
And yet, it’s one’s attitude that can be uplifting –
We know in our heart of times of gladness,
And we know there are moments of sadness;
And the hurts and troubles life leaves!
And we know, “In times of uncertainties there
Is a glimmer of hope that others do care?”
So we owe it all to God for this gift of life –
It’s not man, but to God we have to please,
Life! It’s not – just make believe.

The feel of velvet
The touch of satin
The glitter of gold,
But only a heart truly knows,
And stored in your mind –
The truth of secrets in your eyes
That you are trying to hide,
But in your eyes it shows!
Deception will be known –
Like the clouds that hide the sunshine,
With time they will dissipate…
And only the light you will find;
Lying in the face of truth is wrong;
It leaves your soul filled with fear,
And in the darkness you stand alone,
And the devil himself is lurking near!
The joy in truth you will find,
But in this day and age it’s rare;
To your heart you need to be kind –
Then secrets in your eyes you can share!

O how I have heard the cries of My children,
And Egypt, you will set my people free!
My prophecy shall be fulfilled as it is written:
“Pharaoh that he send the children of Israel
Out of his land and the Egyptians will give
Israel all their wealth to get rid of them.”
So shall it be in latter days before God’s return,
The meek, for they shall inherit the earth;
Wealth will increasingly find and overtake us,
For the purpose is to establish God’s covenant.
Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with
The first fruits of all thine increase. Thou hast
Caused men to ride over our heads, we went
Through fire and through water, but thou
Broughtest us out into a wealthy place. Behold,
God has allowed the wicked to accumulate all
Kinds of treasures for His use in the last days.
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming
Of the Lord, the husbandman waiteth for the
Precious fruit of the earth, until he receive the
Early and latter rain, outpouring of God’s
Spirit is for the harvest of souls into the body
Of Christ and of God. Be ye also patient, establish
Your hearts, for the coming of the Lord draweth
Nigh to restore the wealth into the hands of
God’s people. Amen
