Opened Heaven’s Door

 

“A friend loves at all times.” Proverbs 17:17

Miss Cheryl and I never exchanged a harsh word between us.

Oh yes, she would “line” me out a time or two,

“Now, Miss Denise”,

But never in anger or a cruel word on her tongue;

Always with kindness and love.

 

I will miss you greatly my friend. From my heart to yours,

 

Opened Heaven’s Door

“She felt deeply for her students, and

Considered each her “dear”.

Listening to their stories;

Counseling them with her ear;

Open to their heartaches,

As she gathered each one near.

 

But Heaven gained a Daughter,

Faithful to the Son.

I know she heard Him say to her,

“Well done My faithful servant, your job on earth is done.”

 

Oh, the Joy ahead, and the Peace to Hope for more.

When Jesus called her to Himself, and

Opened heaven’s door.”

 

In memory and honor of my friend and co-worker during our “season’ of Elementary school together.

Christmas Prelude – To Ponder More

dsc_0061webtreebetter

In my house abundance

Of all the “things” we “feel” will make it right,

Would we,

“With loss in heart”,

 Feel the same on Christmas night?

This caused my heart to ponder more.

For those depressed with grief, wax sore.

Can I understand their suffering?

Extend a hand to make a mend?

With nothing more than pen in hand,

I share the Gift of the Son of man.

The following to come are a few poems written in this “season”

Dedicated to those who are grieving and broken hearted.

“The Merry Christmas song draws near.

Many sorrows await with tears.

Broken hearts of love depart.

Disappointments plague the start.

But measure not the day ahead.

Looking past the fear and dread.

Keep thine eyes upon the Bright.

For darkness cannot exist where there is

Light!”

“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying,

“I AM the Light of the world.

He who follows me shall not walk in darkness,

but have the Light of life.” John 8:12 (ESV)

 

“God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5 (ESV)
