TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

GOD GIVES THE VERY BEST GIFTS AT CHRISTMAS

Poetdoug's Blog

On the lst Day of Christmas, Jesus gave to me

Not a partridge—but salvation full and free.

On the 2nd Day of Christmas Jesus gave to me

—-The Dove of the Holy Spirit cheerfully.

On the 3rd Day of Christmas Jesus gave to me

—Trinity peace in my heart to last eternally.

On the 4th Day of Christmas–not 4 birds calling

—But love for the lost from Heaven falling.

On the 5th Day of Christmas–He gave golden rings

—True Joy encircling my soul the Savior brings.

On the 6th Day of Christmas–not 6 geese a-laying

But power from above to keep me from a-straying.

On the 7th Day of Christmas–no 7 swimming swans

But living Fountain Spring water—for everyone.

On the 8th Day of Christmas no milking madis appeared

But God’s milk of kindness washed away all my fears.

On the 9th Day of Christmas the Savior gave to me

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS

Happy Birthday Family Christmas Tree—40 years old this Christmas

THE FAMILY TREE

I am part of a great growing family

I’m marvelously memorable you see;

I’m the centerpiece of every December–

Folks come from far and near to see me.

I was brought home when the baby was born

They gave me the top spot in the room–

They made me feel both loved and needed

—And cheerily cherished too.

Through many years they have love me

Treasuring my green snow-flocked arms;

Although I may not grow fragrant fresh fir

–Their cozy Christmas lights keep me warm.

Their children gave me hand-made crafts

I’ve watched them grow taller each year;

Yes, I’m the faithful Family Christmas Tree

—But true love brings me back each year!

P.S. Our 6 foot snow flocked artificial Christmas tree was purchased when our son Richard was born (and he’s just…

I No Longer Worry about Worry!

NOW IS THE TIME TO BE HAPPY

Poetdoug's Blog

—Now is the Time to be Happy!

Tranquil Scene

HASTY HEARTS

Slow down my Hasty Heart

Slow down and in Him wait;

God often lingers long–

But He never comes too late.

Slow down my worrying Heart

And travel on in calm peace;

Conform your will unto His—

And your soul shall have a feast.

Slow down my HastyN Heart

God guides the future as the past;

Let nothing shake your confidence

—All shall be bright at last!

A LABOR DAY PSALM

HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND–THANK GOD FOR YOUR JOB!

Poetdoug's Blog

The Lord is my Emloyer

I shall not want—

Each morning I report for duty

And offer Him daily praise.

He leads me into paths of purity

And though I walk thru the shadow of debt

He generously provides for me

That where He is, I shall be too.

His bountiful benefits are boundless

His rare Health-care plan divine.

His Retirement Plan is our of this world

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

All the days of my laboring life—

And I shall willingly work for Him forever.

Amen.

A SOLDIER IS A TRUE PATRIOT

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR SOLDIERS

Poetdoug's Blog

A Soldier is a true PATRIOT

Ring

Ring!Ring!

“Who is it ” the voice bravely answers

“Mom–It’s Me

I’m Coming Home”

A Soldier’s phone call changes everything.

Months

Far away at Battle

Would she ever see “Soldier boy” again?

Fighting–

For our Nation’s Freedom

A brave Soldier’s call changes everything!

Home

He’s coming HOME!

As Mom begins to prepare the ‘fatted calf” feast

Ring!Ring!

Mom, I’m Coming HOME”

A Soldier’s phone call changes everything!

A PRAYER OF BLESSING FOR THE NEW PRINCE

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS TO BABY PRINCE GEORGE

Poetdoug's Blog

The Royal Family of Great Britain is often a subject of controversy.

But then I fell in love with the photos of the new Baby Prince George and wrote and mailed to them this “PRAYER FOR THE PRINCE”:

To the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

We offer this sincere prime Princely Prayer

Bless O Lord, His Royal Highness Kingly child

May your grace and mercy meet him everywhere.

Bless His Highness’ hands to become a Blessing

To the weary masses of this hurting world–

Bless his dear feet to follow Peace

As his country’s great banners are unfurled.

Bless his Kingly heart to honor fresh freedoms

Bless his awesome eyes to follow suit;

Bless his honest lips to encourage others

As world peace he perennially pursues.

Bless O Lord this outstanding Royal Family

Keep them always close unto Thee–

May Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge

Thy faithful, bountiful Blessings…
