Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village though;

He will not see me stopping here

To watch his woods fill up with snow.

Nearer, My God, To Thee

img_0441

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me.

Still all my song shall be,

Nearer, my God, to Thee;

Nearer, my God to Thee, nearer to Thee.

Leisure

img_2657

What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs

And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,

Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,

Streams full of stars, like stars at night.

No time to turn at Beauties glance,

And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can

Enrich the smile hers eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

Talent

Use what talents you possess.  The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.

Gather Wildflowers

img_0315

Gather wildflowers, drink moonlight, thank the stars, remember to dream, to laugh, to sing and most of all…pretend you have wings and use them.

Love

img_0281

O Love that wilt not let me go,

I rest my weary soul on thee;

I give Thee back the life I owe,

that in Thine ocean depths its flow

may richer, fuller be.

O Light that follow’st all my way,

I yield my flick’ring torch to Thee;

my heart restores its borrowed ray,

that in Thy sunshine’s blaze

its day may brighter, fairer be.

The Future

Remember the past, but do not dwell there.  Face the future where all our hopes stand.
