Life is like a Game

I've been thinking of the movie "Facing the Giants".
The man, a high school football coach,
had not had a winning season in 7 years. He was
discouraged. When he came home, his car died in
the driveway.

He sat down at the table and started to eat. It was
a sandwich. His wife said the stove doesn't work.
Not only that, the drier wasn't working either. As
he sat there, he put his hands through his hair and
said and I'm going bald.

Do you ever feel like that? Everything is going wrong.
It could be compared to a game of football. You get
tackled a lot before you reach the goal line. You
sometimes think you're not going to be able to get back
into the game.

Other times you feel like you have been penalized. The
flag's been thrown down. Go back 10 yards. You wonder
what you've done that you're having all these problems.

Then there are those wonderful days when you reach the
goal line and feel like everyone in the stands are cheering
for you.

Precious Gems

Precious gems so rare,

There's naught to compare.

Why did you choose upon me to shine

Your friendship so fine?

Your cheerleading style

Saw me through many a trial.

You led me to a higher plane

And helped me sing a lovely refrain.

Even a language barrier

Couldn't keep us from being together.

To another country we'd flown.

You made me part of your home.

You were like a gentle breeze,

Even getting down on your knees

Making pleas for me to the Father above

Showing me your loyalty and love.

Friends, old and new

How could I do without you?

You're love is a refreshing stream.

Our friendship, I highly esteem.

Neglecting my Blog

I've been having so much fun on Fanstory creating stories about Fischer and Two Bear. Then there's Esther Sue, Tessa Turtle and Pete, the guard dog and their adventures. What will they be doing next? It's such fun to work on these stories for my grandchildren. Next Fischer is going to be pretending to be a pirate and then one of the doodle boppers. I have a cute picture of Esther looking up heavenward. There may be a story of Esther praying.

It seems that some of my poems about God have been the best received. So, I hope to write
more. Fanstory is a great place to share stories about God and people read them and review them. Some even seem encouraged. There are some doubters, but they at least read and maybe
reflect some.

So, if you don't notice any poems or stories here, I'll be on Fanstory.
