Moonlight so beauteous in the night sky;
Shimmering loveliness in a lonely one’s eyes.
Fog and cloud strive to cover and hide,
But they cannot blind these memories of mine.
I will remember, both in heart and in mind;
Through sorrow and gladness, from time unto time.
Wait for the shadows to pass on by;
Love today’s gift, these treasures from Christ.
Greater love hath no man than to lay down his life;
From groom unto bride, husband and wife… I wish you a loving… Happy Valentine’s.
Moonlight so beauteous in the night sky;
Taxes are coming up. We all dread them. This year I was going to file my own taxes with my Dad’s help. So I get all my tax info together and give it to him. He was not quite ready, so he set it in a pile on the kitchen counter.
A couple of days went by, and there was some apparent misinformation. He thought I was going to take care of the pile, and I thought he was going to take care of the pile. Neither of us did anything with it, and it soon vanished!
Once I knew it was missing, I panicked. I searched my room three times, completely disassembling it. We checked every pile in the house, from school books to magazines to junk drawers. We got really desperate and went through the entire week’s garbage (gross). We found clues that led us to believe they were in the house somewhere. My greatest fear was that my tax information had been used as fire-starter.
We had just about given up the hunt (my family had been scouring the couch cushions and bedrooms), when my Mom finally suggested I look in one last place: her cook book. She mentioned that she occasionally closed it up without looking to see if something had become part of the overflowing binder full of recipes.
My dad started going through the cook book while I looked in the last, remote areas of the house where no one ever ventures. Just as I had given up, Dad exclaimed that he had found it!
Just as my mother had said, it was tucked inside her cook book on the very LAST page.
So remember, if you ever lose important paperwork or homework, check the cook book.
Join me in my picture frames,
With family and friends.
Some, I hardly know their names,
But the memories never end.
Some, reminders of golden days;
Others dark and dreary.
Though life is like repeating waves,
God remains so steady.
I look at many and remember
Mistakes I made in plenty;
Friendships won, and so treasured,
Then lost and feeling empty.
From young to old, I wonder at
This life I have been given.
Picture of us on the wall that
Show me I’m forgiven.
Fun in life that makes me laugh
And bonds us all together,
Starts a friendship that will last
No matter the trial or error.
Join us in our picture frame;
We’d love to have you here.
No matter age, race, or name,
Come join us, all that hear.
PS-The answer to Riddle #4 is “the sun.”
She sleeps so fair,
And only God can wake her.
Except where shadows linger.
Once, maybe twice,
As she rises and sets;
Sleeping, doth rise,
Awake, she goes to bed.
Bright and cheery,
She starts her day in light;
Red and misty,
She leaves in red, gold, sight.
I’m sorry it’s been so long. As school progresses, it may get much worse. Also, I am starting to save up for a camera again, so I can start photographing some adventures for you.
My eyelids flutter as I resist
The urge and want to sleep.
The night time calls and does not desist;
My thoughts start to merge with dreams.
I wander down a narrow path
That has no seeming end.
A ship with sails of the past
Passed me like a friend.
A rope was lowered down the side
For me to grab I supposed.
I took hold and was drawn up right
To the deck of who knows.
There was no crew or captain there,
On that great and dreamy ship.
It took me far from anywhere,
To a place where memories fled.
As the breeze filled the sails with
Hopes and wishes and dreams,
I laughed and cried and felt bereft
As they floated away from me.
The ship took me places I’d never been
Where even my imagination gaped.
My heart beat fast at what was seen,
Extremes of both love and hate.
Oh roller coaster ride of my life,
Stop at once. I beg you, have mercy.
Tired, frail, and broken am I;
So please, take me back in a hurry.
The ship does not alter its course or route
One second of a single degree.
How do I end this nightmare right now
And put an end to this, my suffering?
A bright light blinds me in my fears
As the ship is suddenly gone!
I found that, on the path, I appeared;
So thankful that it was done.
As my dreams and thoughts divide,
My eyes open to day,
I thank Christ for saving my life
When I was drifting away.
I lay in bed and hear refrains,
Of raindrops hitting the window pane.
Phantom noises playing games,
Drops of sweat, tears, and pain.
The sun lay low so far away,
Night ‘ere waits for break of day.
Shadows full of mean, cold rain,
That fell before, and continue today.
Darkness sits outside this place,
There it waits for unlucky prey.
With every evil eagerly in wait,
I hope in Jesus Christ and pray.
