These Summer Days

These summer days
They slip away
Before you know it
Fall leaves arrayed
Beneath our feet
The earth grows cold
And here comes winter
Ever bold
‘Tis the truth
Since times old
Seasons change
There’s sun
There’s snow

But God’s love won’t let us go
These winter days
Burst into spring
And once again we’ll learn to sing
These summer days
Aren’t here to stay
So cherish them in every way
For the gift they are
Today

Stop.

Sunrise
Sunset
Restless sleep
Get up
Check your phone
Short prayer
Busy day
A quick hug
Distracted listening
Lack of vision
Days blur together
What is tomorrow?
It is today
Where are we going?

Stop.

Run to a quiet place
Sit
Rest
Let Him come
In His time
Changing your heart
Thunder rolls
Music plays
Your heart sings along
Dancing in the rain
Joy through the pain
Faith, hope, and love remain

Rhyme

Cherished

I love you more than words can say
You’ve touched my heart in so many ways
Each day you’re learning something new
And so often I find I learn from you
How to trust
How to love

How to make others smile
And though I only hold your hand for a while
I hold you in my heart forever
Cherishing these times together
Each day is a gift that God keeps on giving
Bringing a deeper meaning for living

Prayer, Rhyme

For the Land

When will the shadows turn to light
When will Zion be a delight?

When will her children walk in peace
When will violence leave her streets
When will the tears cease?

On You we wait
Like watchmen pray
Oh, defend this city

By Your great Name

Please send from above
Oh, heavenly Dove

And heal the Land
That You love
