Thanksgiving Praise


Thanksgiving Praise

“Beautiful dew filled,

Field chilled,

Hallelujah we praise You

Thanksgiving morning!”

“I will praise the Name of God with a song,

And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30 (ESV)


“First cup of coffee;

Grab the camera and go.

My cup overflows with Your bounty;

Your Light points the way I should flow.”

Horizon Bound


“The moon will disappoint you,

Shining orb within your view.

Up to see its’ brightness,

Amidst cold morning dew.

Slowly it settles,

Inch by inch,

Unto the ground.

Slipping to the distance wonders,

Horizon settled,

Glory bound.”



“He alone stretches out the heavens

and treads on the waves of the sea.

He makes the stars: the Bear, Orion, the Pleiades,

and the constellations of the southern sky.


He does great and unsearchable things,


Wonders without number.

If He passes by me,

I wouldn’t see Him;

If He goes right by,

I wouldn’t recognize Him.”

Job 9:9-11 (HCSB)

“Around three in the morning, He came toward them walking on the sea

And wanted to pass by them.

When they saw Him walking on the sea…they cried out…

He spoke with them and said,

“Have courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

Mark 6:48-50 (HCSB)

America – My Father’s Pride

My Father’s pride.

Oh, how he loved to serve by your side.

Fathers, Sons, and Daughters too,

Laid their lives down to fight for you.


If truth be told, they’d tell you so,

If called to arms, they’d willingly go.


The proud, the strong, integrity bound,

In serving you,

America was found.”

Beautiful View


“Out of the ashes,

We gathered despised.

Never again to believe the lies.

Blessed is the view our

Forefathers knew.

Strength and Victory

Belong only to You!”

“Blessed is the Nation whose God is the LORD.” Psalm 33:12


Let us not be divided.


For we are Americans!

Cast Your Vote American


“To Vote or not?” I can hear them say.

How can you not cast your vote today?


Our Forefathers laid their lives full down.

Cold and hungry Valley Forge found.

Fort McHenry and Francis Scott Key,

Star Spangled Banner his eyes did see.


Oh beautiful waves of grain,

The right to VOTE came with pain.

Whether the Vote is red or blue,

Step up and embrace her,

American’s died for you.”

Washington Rain

Washington Rain
Washington Rain

Rain continues here this morning at my house in the middle of the heartland. Thoughts of tomorrow and our Country fill my mind. I pray you are blessed with a re-post of a poem from a trip to Washington, D.C.

Washington Rain

“Washington in the rain;

I would not refrain,

nor be hesitant to do.


The City of White,

a magnificent sight;

she shows off her

red, white and blue.


The Monuments too,

reflecting their view,

are seen all around;

their the talk of the town!


Sunshine or rain,

the message the same;


May God bless you!”
