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

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

You Are My Song

Thank You for the new day Lord;
for Your love and sunshine that warms our face.

“For The Lord is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.”
Psalms 84:11

The sun is a light that shines outwardly through the trees with it’s rays to reveal what is going on everywhere. It is a guide for our path. His shield of light is our protection from the darkness and the darts of this world, that wish to destroy.
We shine the light that we have received from Him, Jesus; whose love lives within our heart. We shine it outwardly to others. I humbly worship You in the sunshine Lord, and even more so, in the shade. It is in the heavy times that we see the most through You. We receive Your great wisdom.

Thank You for loving me Lord, in my lowly state and shining Your light in me so that I can sing of your greatness out to others.
“You are loved by an awesome and mighty God who is your light and strength”

Have a super day k
