I Choose

Yes, I have walked through the valley of the shadow of death.
And, I have known evil.
But, I choose not to do that any longer.

I have faced demons that had the same faces of the ones I love.
I have battled the devil in the form of those who “cared”.
And, I choose to forgive….and go on.

I have faced evil in the form of my own addictions and desires…
I have battled myself and lost….
I have chosen to up my odds,
I have chosen to raise the bar and
I have chosen to Believe.

To Believe in a power higher than myself…
Call it what you wish…
I call Him, Father…
I call Him, Brother and
I call Him, my Savior.

And, now …
When I walk through the valley of the shadow of death …
I  fear no evil.

Happy Times

Happy times
Happy times
Though it be cloudy and rainin'
I got me some happy times.

I got a Lord to turn to
A Savior who cares
Family that loves me
and friends who share

Happy times
Happy times
Say it with me....
I got me some
Happy times.

My Wish...

I wish the world could see itself as I see it
The mountains with their fearsome splendor
The prairies and their colors bright
The ocean with its waves crashing and
Its beaches…sometimes black and oft times white.

I wish the world could see it as I see it.
The grass so green and vibrant in its glory
The clouds transforming in the sky
The river flowing ever onward
Its water crashing from the falls overhead… so high.

I wish the world could be seen as I see it
Not as it is sometimes
With destruction
 War … tearing it apart
 And its people committing
