Back to School

Where did the summer go?  It is now back to school for all these precious children.  This is a good time to especially pray for the children in your life.  I know that is just what I plan to do.

Below is a poem I wrote for a dear, classy lady who was 95 and passed away a few years ago. I also have shared a poem that I had written for the Carter County Christian Women’s Retreat a few years ago in August. Lastly, I have shared a poem that is a little about going back to school.

Hazel

You’re such a special person
To everyone you know.
You spread such love and kindness
Everywhere you go.

Your embroidery is stunning.
Your quilting is an art.
You give so much to others,
And it comes straight from your heart.

Your attitude is always good
No matter come what may.
You always give encouragement
To brighten up our days.

God gave us a special gift,
And we all love you so.
He made you an angel on earth
Who blesses everyone you know.

Does the World Know I’m a Christian?

Does the world know I’m a Christian
When they see me on the street?
Do I think of others,
Or do I only think of me?
Does the world know I’m a Christian
When I’m driving down the road?
Am I rude to other drivers,
And those who drive too slow?
Does the world know I’m a Christian
When at work the day is long?
Am I easy to forgive
Those who do me wrong?

Does the world know I’m a Christian
In my family life each day?
Do I cause hate and turmoil
When I don’t get my way?
Someone may be on the verge
Of coming to the Lord.
If they see that I’m no different,
They may forever close the door.
Non-Christians may be watching
To see a difference in what we do;
So always think before you act,
They may be watching you!

BACK TO SCHOOL

It’s back to school for all the kids.
Summer has gone so fast.
And now they must get ready,
So they won’t be left behind in class.
They must get pens and pencils
And paper on which to write.
Maybe a brand new notebook
And clothes that aren’t too tight.
We also need to be prepared
In the Christian lives we live.
We need to daily grow in Christ
And happily learn to give.
We need to read our Bibles
And study every day,
Letting our God speak to us.
Through His word He shows the way.
We need to keep on praying,
Knowing God knows what is best.
Having faith that can move mountains
And a peace that gives us rest.
We are to be clothed in righteousness
And praise His holy name.
Showing others the love of God,
And that it always stays the same.
We can learn a lesson
From these children that we love.
We need to be prepared to learn
From the great Teacher up above.
