THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLAG

It's the most Beautiful
Flag
In The World,
And When I see
It all Unfurled
I ask The ...
Father
To It richly
Bless
In all of It's
True Strength and Loveliness.
May It Stand For
All Goodness
And Courage ~
All Strength and
Devotion
And Love
And May It's
Pride
And It's Glory
Forever
Be Centered
In Our Great
God
Above!

The Flag looked
So Bright
Against the
Dark of The
Day,
It's The Most Beautiful
Flag
In The World
And When I see
It all Unfurled...
I ask The
Father
To it Richly Bless
In all of It's
True Strength and
Loveliness.


OUR COLORS

I Was Glad When I Saw
Our Colors Waving
Joyously in the Morning's Brisk
Air
And I thought, "I Have
Never Seen Anything That is
Quite so Fair."
I feel a thrill
That is Mighty
When I see
Our Colors
Waving Out There...
And My Heart fills
With deep
Thanks giving For
Our Troops as I lift Them
Heavenward
In Prayer..

MY SUNSHINE

Dear Lord, You are
My Sunshine,
And My Happiness.
Because of You
I can forget
All My Troubles
And Stress!

Because of
You The Sun
Shines into
My Life...
So that I can
Help Lift
From Others
Their burdens
And strife.

May You
Give Me Your
Riches
Of Heavenly
Love.
So I can
Convey To Others
Your Wondrous Grace
From Above.

You are My
Sunshine,
Dear Lord,
And My
Happiness!
Because of
YOU
I can forget
All My
Troubles
And Stress.





LITTLE GOODY TWO RED SHOES

Little goody Two Red
Shoes,
How did you happen
To Your two New
Red Shoes lose?
Did You just store them
Away?
Your Two Red Shoes
Thinking You Would come
Back again and get
Your Goody Two Red
Shoes?
It Might seem funny
To Some...
But Me it does not
Amuse.
For I loved seeing
You Wear
Your shiny little
Red Shoes.
If You find
Your Goody
Two Red Shoes,
Will You be
Careful
Not to Them
Again Lose?
I Want to
See You
Wearing Them
With Your
Red Plaid
Dress.
Then All the
People
You see
Will
Greatly
Impress.

( A poem to baby Grace)



I LIKE THE RAIN

I Like The Rain...
Seeing Children
Scurrying
And People
Hurrying...
Umbrellas
Tilted to keep
Out the shower
And Rain Coming
Faster Hour
By Hour.
I Like Air
That smells
Moist,
Heavenly
Sweet
And Water
Oozing
At My Plastic - shod
Feet.
I Can Almost See
The Flowers
Grow!
The Green Lace
Trees
Have a Special
Glow.
Drops sparkle
Like Diamonds
On The
Window Panes
Do You Like
It
When It
Rains?
