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

Today is a Promise

Today is a promise to tomorrow
A dream
A commitment
An adventure to follow

With God as the compass
And love as the guide
You’ll climb every mountain
And cross rivers wide

No journey is easy
But no words can explain
The joy & the beauty
That sings in the rain

Sunshine will brighten
Hearts held by grace
And hope gives strength
Day by day

It’s a heritage you’re forming
A home established forever
Built by the One
Who brought you
Together

–For Silas & Abigail LaGoy.  Yahweh bless you more than you can dream!

Not Forgotten

Let’s pause to remember
Let’s acknowledge what is true

For every life is precious
A gift from above
Let’s not forget
Let’s stand for honesty
For love
For freedom
For those who have no voice
For the unborn
For the slave
For the unknown and ignored
Let’s stand for hope
For justice
For grace
Let’s walk humbly
Bravely
Toward the God of our redemption
Toward the hope of tomorrow
Let’s not forget
Let’s change the future
