Survival Power



Our bodies are made of clay,
And molded for us to obey;
Yet we have searched for a treasure,
That will be giving us pleasure.

For we also have to hold dear,
Within our hearts to hold near;
Which is giving us the Good News,
Along with our right to choose.

This shows the superior might,
If you enter into the light;
That is belonging unto God,
If we truly honor and laud.

In many ways we are troubled,
Crushing blows when they are doubled;
Frustrated but not to give up,
Taste not the poison from the cup.

We are tormented but not forsook,
By all ridicule that we took;
Through the years of our belief,
Never seeing any relief.

We were captured but not yet killed,
All because the Lord has instilled;
Perseverance unto each breath,
That we carry until our death.

For we carry the death of Christ,
And the way He was sacrificed;
So the life of Jesus is shown,
In our hearts upon His throne.

And we are alive for His sake,
Our clay is molded to make;
And show our mortal nature,
Transformed into a new creature.

So death is at work deep within,
Because the temptation of sin;
But life also at work in you,
If your survival remains true.

A GRATEFUL HEART IS A HAPPY HEART!


A GRATEFUL HEART IS A HAPPY HEART! judylea 3*30*15
.AND IT SHOWS LOVE!

I met a family once that helped me to remember where I came from. They didn't seem
to notice how one served the other and didn't seem grateful or moved by it. The husband
was not loving at all except to the pets, especially his dog. It was sweet how loving he was
to his dog. I couldn't help but think it would be so nice if he would talk to his wife that way.
He treated his dog how he needed to treat his wife and he talked to his wife like sheh was a dog.
It was very sad. The family wasn't saying thank you or showing any appreciation or love to one
another. I knew they were on the Lords heart and He wanted me to pray for them. (There was
something good there for they opened their home to almost a stranger and gave one of God's
children much more than a drink of water.)

It also made me take inventory of my grateful barometer and made me stop and recognize
that I use to be that way too. Well my parents taught me manners and to say please and
thank you; and I am so grateful for that! But how often is there a blessings and kindness
from others that I have overlooked and taken for granted. It could have helped
me feel joy and the others feel loved and appreciated when I noticed.

It is so easy to love those who love us and to recognize ones who go out of their way * (well
not always. because it is so easy to get caught up in self and in this society that caters to this
sickness.) So, how much more difficult is it to help people feel, accepted and appreciated
right where they are when they are wounded, hurting and mean. They may even be
showing love their way and it doesnt look like love to me. They may have just shown a precious
act of kindness that came from all they could offer in their heart. This makes me think of a
precious act of love in a drawing my child did for me and I threw it away.twice.after he took
it out of the garbage can again. Just because I was thinking more about my desk looking in order
than being conscious about my childs heart; Oh what that must have done to that precious heart.
It truly takes effort to meditate on loving and noticing love in others.

If a feeling follows thoughts and we are meditating on something rather than how we can
allow the Holy Spirit to guide us in showing love (through motives, thoughts, actions,
and looking for all to be grateful for in God and others) how miserable we will be. But
if I am on a constant voyage to show love to God and others in serving and appreciating them;
then my thoughts are focussed on something that can only bring about feelings of joy and love.

It takes a constant conscience effort to practice seeing the love in others (even when they can't
see it themselves.) It is a choice to try and notice when someone else is serving or commending
or showing affection (giving in their way) The act of acceptance and appreciation for another
right where they are helps them feel loved. This choice and action may change the course of
their day for the good and they may pass on a smile to another * starting "a love cycle".

I learned that forgiveness is equivalent to love, but noticing love and having a grateful heart
passes on Christ's love too. It creates the atmosphere of love. God inhabits the praises of His
people and He loves a grateful heart. I have wondered how many times I have over looked
kindnesses or love in others while caught up in my own wounds and how often I had
not noticed answered prayer and a beautiful gift of sunshine from my God. As a mom several
times I said, Lord now I know how you must feel sometimes. The joy of a child is precious but
the self centered and immaturity at times can cause frustration and induces a since of feeling
totally unappreciated and loved. Thankfully God kept loving me when I was ungrateful and continued
to teach me and guide me in teaching my children.

Thank you Lord for your beauty and grace. Forgive me for all the times I didn't notice or appreciate
all your gifts. Please allow me to see every beautiful gift from you and from others. Help me show
appreciation and love for everyone you place in my path. You are an amazing God who turns hearts
of stone to hearts of flesh. Thank you for who you are and who you place in my life as my teachers.
Thankyou for showing me that a grateful heart is a happy heart.

SMILE (Poem by Judylea)

Turned up corners from her lips
Heart attached soul strings
Warmth and love envelops it
Contagious touch it brings

She smiled at the agitated man
Who softened with a smile
Who passed it on to a lonely heart
Who's no longer lonely now

JudyLea Copyright 2003

Note: Thank you to those of you who have smiled at me and upon
me at times that it may have been least desirable for you to do so.
Love does heal and change attitudes doesn't it? Thank you!
1 CORINTHIANS 13:8
GRATEFUL FOR MY TEACHERS (Poem by judylea)

I can only see in others
The traits I myself possess
My children, friends and brothers
Their my teachers.they're my test

If I do not like who someone is
The finger points back at me
I'm not at peace with that part of myself
That part.I don't want to see

I then ask my God for courage
To face my darker side
Become aware, repent and share
No longer run or hide

I'm forever grateful for this insight I'm aware
It will forever change my life
So with others I want to share

We can only see in others
Traits we ourselves possess
Our children, friends and brothers
They're our teachers.they're our test

JudyLea copyright 2003

"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" Matthew 7:1*3


THREE WORDS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE (Poem by Judylea)

(Try this experiment)

All day*long
With each thought
Action, word and song*
say:
Thank you Lord

When you catch your mood shifting
Judging or blaming
Stop resisting
and say:
Thank you Lord

When you feel a loss or hurt arise
Release your tears
Look to the skies
and say:
Thank You Lord

When finances are low
And your bills are due
Have faith your Father will care for you
and say:
Thank You Lord

Even if there's little
Joyfully give some away
Your God will repay You
It will be easy to say:
Thank you Lord

Seek the good in everyone
When another wrongs you
Imitate Gods Son
and say:
Thank you Lord

Look for the lesson
The blessing in everything
Consider it a joy for all it will bring
and say:
Thank you Lord

In every circumstance
At every moment
at every glance
Say:
Thank You Lord

Practise this mental habit all day for 30 days
.Watch your world change.
And your heart naturally Praise
You'll SING*OUT. THANK YOU LORD!

~Spring Into Easter Dream~´


Dedicated in part
to a certain poet from the heart,
is this rainbowy enuff todo
for you know who?!?!

I'm a little chickadee
sharing an Easter Fantasy,
sunshine and rainbows and dreams oh my
lighting up a blackened sky
sunshine and rainbows and dreams oh my
lighting up a blackened sky
sunshine and rainbows and dreams oh my
lighting up a blackened sky.

I remember back in school
that time of year was so cool,
getting baby chicks all different colored fur
they would Spring thru the house at Easter!
Then I grew up and became that chick all aglow
hopping a ride on the Angelic Rainbow,
that feeling was Magic to be
a black bird no more cause of My Faron Lee!
But He didn't merely walk He flew my way
in the sunshine we'd sing and sway,
now than sun has gone black
what was physically mine I so want back!
In dreams it's there and never gone
every single day from dusk till dawn,
no need for the easter bunny
cause I had My Sir Honey!
Quite the treasure worth more than gold
the sweetest confection broke the mold,
In Dream In Dreams To HappiLee Fly
no need no need for eyes that cry!
She walked and sang in the sun
envied so by everyone,
she is me dreaming now and crying every single day
waiting for that sunshiny rainbow to come back in play!
SALLY

A bird that laid the golden egg not a goose
for a feathered rainbow is on the loose.

My Love there's nothing well about this seperation
High Above tho we'll meet again soon In Heaven.

On this earth I no longer have a place
just taking up empty space,
On this earth I no longer have a voice
just crying out sorrow my only choice!
On this earth but long to go
Just Beyond The Rainbow,
On this earth so all alone
just waiting to fly away home!
Everything's falling apart Dear Lord Dear Friends
as long as I'm stuck here how I survive it depends,
I need help in so many ways
and for that me and every friend prays,
Thank You Thank You Thank You
Keep Praying Please Do
Thank You Thank You Thank You
Keep Praying Please Do
Thank You Thank You Thank You
Keep Praying Please Do!
UR such a PALLY to~RALLY~FOR~SALLY

Looked out this morning no sun so wrong
turned on some music to start my day,
I lost myself in a familiar song
{ I closed my eyes and the magic sway }
It's more than a feeling
when I hear that old song we used to play,
more than a feeling I begin dreaming
more than a feeling
cause I see Faron Lee walk my way
I see My Faron Lee walk my way!
( the moon with its stars Heavenly Body got nothin on Faron Lee * *
Says His 4ever Sweetie ME

Farewell Winter


Winter I bid you farewell
With you I shall no longer dwell
Signs of you leaving
Winter my heart has been grieving
Green grass will sprout and grow
Flowers will bloom and put on their show
Birds, their lovely songs will sing
Butterflies will flutter and welcome Spring
God knows when its time for each season
Some things we just don't know the reason
As my heart deeply grieves
Trees will bud leaves
Beauty of Spring will surround me
I will escape with the breeze; feeling free
I will plant a special tree
A tree for him and me
On a warm Spring night
I will release all fright
Looking up at the lighted sky
I'll gently let him go and simply ask why?

´March 29, 2015 Janet Irene Griffin

Author's note: To my dear loving husband:
I miss your music that filled the air. Our dance will continue on forever!

NO MAIL TODAY




NO MAIL TODAY

There once was a man
Who said `yes I can,
I can write to you
If you want me to`.

But I stand and stare
My mail box is bare,
Where has my mail gone?
Maybe there was none!

Tomorrow I`ll see
Maybe there`ll be three,
Then there could be none
Where has my mail gone?

D`you think he forgot?
I surely hope not
Oh! Where is my mail?
It`s slow like a snail.

Could be a post strike!
Oh! What am I like?
Maybe that`s the cause
I`m clutching at straws.

I`ll just wait and see
If there`s mail for me
It could come in bulk!
If not, then I`ll sulk.

God's Great Masterpiece


When God created mothers
He made them stronger than all others
(Including fathers, uncles, nephews and brothers).

He gave all mothers nerves of steel
To cope with young kids who squeal
And older ones who argue a great deal.

He gave each mother a heart of gold
Containing great love untold,
Never to be bought or sold.

And He also made sure
That a mother's touch could cure
All cuts and abrasions, whether large or obscure.

And then, as if to disarm
Our fear and alarm,
God Gave all mothers a homely, earthly charm.

We take mothers for granted, when really we shouldn't;
And to manage without them we know we just couldn't.
I hate to admit all this, but then, what man wouldn't?!
