Now is the Time

Now is the time
America is the place
To lift up our eyes
And lead the human race

…With the constitution in our arms
We must combine for the right
Protect the family from harm
And restore morals and might

Let’s bring America back
Sovereign and strong
With our vote let’s attack
All that has gone wrong

Dependency’s a drug
Entitlement’s corrupt
Let’s stand up, show up
And declare: WE’VE HAD ENOUGH

For prosperity’s sake
Let’s restore order
We’ve coalitions to make
To defend each border

We’ll not give up lightly
For strength, let’s unite and pray
Unto God Almighty
He will light the way

Against the background
Of a gloomy picture
A distraught man found
He’d no hope for his future

Blown by pollution
A paper danced by
It was the constitution
He heard claps midst an outcry

As behind him, he saw
Presidents of the past
Some came to console
Others came to gloat at the trash

George Washington, alone
Quickly reached low
“What have you now done?”
He wanted to know

The President, then smug
Looked far far away
Power, his drug
He’d gotten his way

The man… he must look up
Time is of the essence
He must say, “Enough!”
And reclaim man’s existence

Freedom has a cost
Faith is required
All is not lost
Under God, he’ll be inspired

Charity is our love for the Lord
Shown through our acts of service
Patience, compassion, and understanding opens the door
To living close to Him with truth, light, and purpose

Charity is also the Lord’s love for us
As He ever shows us forgiveness, mercy, and grace
He waits at the door that prayer opens, thus
That He fill our minds and hearts with pure love’s embrace

pondering charity and the Lord standing at the door
what opens the door?
who enters?
what happens?
How can I do this?

Prayer is the invite
That opens the door
Unto truth and light
Come of the Savior

Let us test and try Him
And listen for His answer
Then feel our minds brighten
As to our hearts He enters

“Charity is our love for the Lord, shown through our acts of service, patience, compassion, and understanding for one another….Charity is also the Lord’s love for us, shown through His acts of service, patience, compassion, and understanding.”

Choosing Charity: That Good Part
Ensign, November 2003,

“I challenge each of you to go to your homes and apartments, to kneel before the Lord and ask, to test and try Him, and to listen for His answer. I bear witness that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true; that prayer is a reliable means of communicating with our Heavenly Father; that even with innumerable questions that are unanswered and perhaps unanswerable in this life, we can know He lives and loves us and knows us. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.”

Adoption and Abortion


The best story that I know
Is of my adoption
As a babe within me began to grow
I took the better option

It’s about making an ugly thing beautiful
About making a wrong thing right
Turning a mistake into a miracle
Giving a child to a couple otherwise denied

2000 posts!

I never thought I’d see this day
Surely God has led me this long way
Giving me the words to write
Filling my mind with truth and light

I am grateful truly to share
All the feelings that come with care
Won’t you suggest a poem or pass one along
For when I feel the need, the Spirit is strong

This is a great land

Remember always

For freedom we stand

And God lights our way

That being said

We have a lot to do

To stay brightly led

We must be righteous too

The love of God…He came to offer
As in the flesh, He gave succor
Healing those who had the faith
Yes, and then sealed His blood to all He sayeth

I saw Angela Johnson’s sculptures at the visitors center in Oakland. The blind came touched them and saw the Lord through these scultpings. What a blessing-what a gift.
