Trees in the Forest

Trees in the Forest

 

The trees in the forest that are big and tall
are the trees I envy most of all.
But just because I’m very small….I’m still a tree.

I’ll grow big and tall, someday,
and see the world in a different way
and spread my branches far up in the blue.

To you who helped me grow so tall,
gave me sight, to see the small;
gave me strength to stretch up through it all.

And I will look upon them low
and try to tell them what I know
and hope they learn what’s best of what they see.

See the pretty flowers on the road below?
See the weeds that beside them grow?
They will blossom too, another day.

God, Keep Us Always

This is actually a song I wrote for my first daughter, Amy’s, wedding.

Our second daughter, Betsy  – who is a lovely singer having sung plays in Chicago for a couple of years, up in Montana and in Denver  –  was originally going to sing it,

but…. she came down with a very sore throat and that left Dad – me –  to sing it at the wedding…

..double-duty for me…..walking Amy down the aisle ….after singing her wedding song……she probably thought she was going to be the more nervous that day.  haha.

GOD, Keep Us Always

GOD
we pray that your love keeps us always,
always and blessed by your love.
GOD
we pray that your love keeps us always,
with blessings each day from above.

When roads become rocky and life seems to stir.
When visions are fuzzy and life’s all a blur.
We pray your love keeps us and guides us along
with beautiful flowers and birds in sweet song.

GOD
we pray that your love keeps us always,
always and blessed by your love.
GOD
we pray that your love keeps us always,
with blessings each day from above.

When dreams turn to wishes and heartaches do burn.
When roads become narrow, don’t know where to turn.
We pray your love keeps us and guides us along
With beautiful flowers and birds in sweet song.

GOD
we pray that your love keeps us always,
always and blessed by your love.
GOD
we pray that your love keeps us always,
always…..in love.

DandYlions

To some a weed, dandelions to many are a thing of beauty.  The view is in the beholder.

DandYlions

Dandelions give us beauty
even though they are a weed.
And while flourishing is their duty,
Dandelions give us beauty.
And as bad weather makes some moody,
to some, it is a need.
Dandelions give us beauty
even though they are a weed.
