Treasure Island

Lauren B Called

Christmas


It was a beautiful winter day
Snow flakes gently floating down
Used to cook for the rich
Now my kids benefit from it now
unmatched silverware
Our laughs hard to contain
My daughters fiancé gets serious
And bows his head to pray
We have more than we could ever need
Good health and joy in hearts
Remembering those who can't be here
Thanking Him for carrying us so far
Chairs that are stuck down low
Another on a hobbit bench
Funny the eccentricity of it all
A humble home as this
But there's no shortage of happy
We all are working toward big goals
Can't imagine how arriving will be
When the path there is so enjoyable
But we're not working for the man
It is to His glory above
As long as we rely on Him
We are held up by His love
2046 years ago
Lowly shepherds entrusted
Our loving Father chose the hearts
For the greatest gift there ever was

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
