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

A Reason for Life

When you collapse in bed after another hard day
And you wake up to see the sun’s ablaze
When you stare at the stars
Like glitter tossed across the dark sky
And you realize that there’s more to life
Than meets the eye
A deeper love holding hearts together
A higher power keeping the earth in motion
When you read His Words
Black on white
And it bursts as color
In your soul so bright
Suddenly there’s a reason for life

Faith, Hope, & Love

Faith is like breathing
The fresh open air
It’s reality
It’s life
Hope is like spring
It never fails to come
And remind us that 
Winter doesn’t last forever
Summer is just around the corner
So keep on breathing
Faith will lead you
And never forget to stop
And smell the spring flowers
That blossom for a moment
But His words last forever
And His love w
ill carry us
Through the dark days
Bringing us joy
Like sun in the rain
