Fun Loving Grandmas
Hey, Barbara! Remember the time —

I’m sure you know this has to rhyme –

Remember the day little Josh came along?

We were on our way to work, doing nothing wrong.

When you got the call, I put the car in high gear.

We flew down I-20 like we had no fear.

I’m not sure if you prayed that we met no disaster.

Or, if you were thinking, “Can’t we go any faster?!”

We made it to Hendrick, no troopers in sight

And there you met little sunshine and light.

I’m sure God rode with us on that crazy day.

He kept us safe in His own divine way.

He watches us still ‘cause He knows who we are –

Fun loving grandmas behind the wheel of a car.

Through Jesus’ Eyes

I wish that you could know me,
See into my soul.
I know that I’m not worthy,
But Jesus makes me whole.

He gives me hope when I’m afraid.
He lifts me when I’m down.
He sends me joy and a smile
To replace an ugly frown.

He runs to meet me every time
I call upon his name.
He lets me know that I don’t need
Riches, clout or fame.

I guess I’m really special
‘Cause Jesus tells me so.
He wants to spend some time with me
And always lets me know.

He wraps his arms around me
And holds me really tight.
He warms my heart and gives me rest
On a cold and lonely night.

He walks with me along the way
And never leaves my side.
He forgives me when I cannot see
Through all my foolish pride.

If only you could see me
The way my Jesus does,
We’d be friends forever
With forgiveness, faith and love.

Sunset Cranes

Ageless Dreams
To my fellow cancer survivors and all who support them

Threadbare carpet,
Worn woven shades,
Days gone by,
Memories of parades –

Towels with raw edges,
A sofa sunken deep,
An old, old freezer,
Bought when food was cheap.

Dresses out of style,
Shoes with signs of wear,
Hats in a pile
No longer cover lack of hair.

Some things wear out.
Don’t stand the test of time.
But my dreams are ageless
And live on in my rhyme.
