Lessons

Time, it cannot melt the truth
Or wax itself unkind
I felt the rain
But don’t regret
The love, it left behind
The long long road
Lit up with strength
Where God’s sweet Glory
Bound in length
With needles hidden
Healed the pain
Where all one’s pride
Must learn to die
With stupefying fights all fixed
Where pity pays no mind to mix
Love’s labor changes lies for truth
One of loves greatest lessons
To be learned

All God’s Dreams

All God’s dreams

Keep all your dreams
God has planned for you
But don’t let the world
Overshadow the view

With a heavenly mind
God’s wisdom abounds
Your feet firmly planted
Upon stable ground …

With Humble discernment
Remember your roots
Your faith in the good Lord
Will bear good fruits

Meditate long
God’s word, His truth
Come to Him as a child
As heard in your youth

Trusting in Jesus
He’s right there for you
Giving all to the Savior
Your dreams will come true

Echoes of God’s Love

In God’s window of my dreams
Bright yellow sunshine is in store
All the dolphins dancing round
Are breaking through the golden doors

Old familiar whistle calls
Speak of rest, on shining shores
Echoes heard by loyal chums
With kettles, bowls, drums galore

A victory song inside my heart
God’s glory belows through the gate
I am surely satisfied
When I learn to live and wait

A Sons Love of His Mother


I found this beautiful card tucked inside a box secured.
A card, with a beautiful poem on it
It reads something like this, through the mist.

I’m going to love you forever
Can you handle that?”

From your Son Daniel

I had remembered these precious words; but to find them was so very special

The note reads on …

Graceful mind of servants fill the head
Of the hallowed halls of Griswold
Glass and carpet meld to form this simple manor
Of blues and wood
Where love and family live
In a harmonious timely routine
That always changes
The great does leave her mornings
To support her blooming children
She Honors them within their individual minds
Because her tasks are each fulfilled
Without any of the other knowing
And she rarely asks for any help from the busy kin she rears
Respect permeates the soul of this humble fortress
And she’ll never worry about the loss of any good thing
Because her prayers are longing and sincere
The God of Abraham honors her faithful service …
Her family loves her

Daniel Robert Griswold

Healing Place

“Call unto me and I will answer thee
And show thee great and mighty things
Which thou knowest not”
Jeremiah 33:3

Someone’s’ crying on their pillow
Someone’s praying unbeknownst
Holding each tear in a jar
And counting them like stars

When pressures are a many
Festering a stye
Come closer to the Savior
Let him wash it from your eye

Oh the worry’s that we carry
Till to Him we cry
God is waiting patiently
To heal what goes awry

He knows each hair upon your head
Made you for His own
Count it joy to learn dear friend
You are not alone

God is able, let Him touch you
He’s at your beckon call
To bind up all the broken places
Pour His love and mend us all

Have a beautiful day, friend

Lord, Your My Everything

My Lord You part the waters
My Lord You calm the sea
Lord You are my everything
Have domininion over me

Lord You are my comfort
Lord You are all I seek
Lord You have the answers
When everything looks bleak

You Lead me on in power
My heart heaped up and free
Lifted far from all my efforts …
Reign fully over …. me …

Mirrored Love

“By day The Lord directs His love
At night His song is with me
A Prayer to the God of my life”
Psalm 42-8 Holy Bible

A morning Hymn

Each morn I look to Gods sweet face
My heart to Him I vow
My life to Him for each new day
I leave to Him the how

I’m safe, I trust in His control
My sufferings understood
Reaching out to Jesus hand
Past hardships for my good

By night I rest … on soft sweet cloud
Upon His loving word
In His blood that cleanses all my stains
Let it rain …
Lord
Let it rain …

Prayers go up and time goes by
Tears roll down from up above
Meet golden nuggets of our faith
Infinite His breaking love

It took years, to assuage
all the fears that held me down
Let it rain, within my heart
I’ve let it go … to Jesus now

And if you’ve just begun, to feel
The real you is revealed
His all sustaining mirrored love
Healing you and me

Wisdom Whispers

As I walked the field, behind my house
I saw it yesterday
Great swellings, from the earth below
Where tiny mice had played

Peeked and reared their little heads
Twasn’t squeaks, I heard that day
More like roaring lions cries
Voiced past all reasons way

A great big sign, upon the land
Fed mounts, with lifted lung
Then fell and crumbled up
From where, they once had hung

All the buffers, quelled expanse
Along the throats canals
Dissipating pockets closed
For higher rational

Humbled by a void of care
Wisdom whispered clear
A belly full, from long ago
Much ado, of nothing there

Swellings from the earth below
Within our hearts, we bear
In quietness, we then, are built
God’s loving earthenware

Kelly Sampson Griswold

A New Way

This is mercy
To love your enemy as yourself
To be kind to those who are hurting
To think of them as future friends
Where forgiveness reigns
and all can mend.
How will they know
Till you extend the ways of love
in turn
To break chains of yesterday
Resisting the urge to hurt back
With knee jerks under leaves of grass
Instead, apologizing for your own wrong
Depriving the blunder of it’s sting
For God is love inside the slight
Liberating us in His song of peace
Sailing off a unified flight

Kelly S. Griswold

Love Thy Neighbor

I stood up tall today
relied on God’s strength
With the use of the pulley
Lifted my weight

In a Christlike way
set into action
Strength of my faith
Thwarted a faction

Loved my dear neighbor
As it were myself
In humility shored
Shielded in stealth

In more ways than one
Walked away in wealth
Walked away in silence
Walked away In health

Kelly Sampson Griswold
