Can I catch my wandering thoughts
As I gaze into the sky
Looking for a little glimpse
Of an angel passing by?

How far away is Heaven?
How busy are they there?
Does my Mother know I’m looking up
And know how much I care?

Will she come back when You do Lord
When You fly down from the sky?
Will she look like she always did
With her smile and teary eyes?

She was not young, though pretty
And You took away her pain
I never wanted her to die
But she had much more to gain.

I want her to be proud of me
So one day, will she know
That You are now my Saviour
And I do love You so?

Use By Date.

We will never reach our ‘use by’ date
In the service of our Lord
But one day He will call us Home
To our last and great reward.

I don’t think when that day does come
I’ll say, “Not yet, not yet”!
For I am ready now dear Lord
Though family may fret.

Is this how prisoners feel the day
Its gates are opened wide
They now can have a brand new start
Though many run and hide.

I’m free to roam most anywhere
Since no-one needs me now
But where is ‘anywhere’, my Lord?
My hands still need a plough.

A purpose and a goal I need
But You must set the pace
I tend to rush round here, then there,
Till I tire of the race.

I know a goal that I could set
And You will help me Lord
I want to know You more and more
And love You as I ought.

The Lord Is The One Who Holds His Hand. Ps 37.24

The Lord is the One Who holds your hand
You could be the happiest in the land
Every tomorrow is a fresh new page
That God has granted you despite your age.

Praise Him as soon as you open your eyes
He never disappoints and He loves to surprise
Treasure His Words in the depths of your soul
They will heal and guide you and keep your spirit whole.

Wait on God, His timing will be right
Walk close to Him Don’t let Him out of sight
Delight in Him as He delights in you
Trust in the Father as He leads you through.

Wyn Barratt.
