Put on a Happy Face

Smile and put on your happy face.

Don’t you dare complain or grumble.

Positive thoughts you must embrace;

though in life you take a tumble.

At times on your face there’s a frown,

when heartache comes and you are sad.

But then you should turn it around.

Use your smile to make others glad.

A smile is great to give away.

When someone’s down it gives them cheer.

How many can you give today?

It can remove despair and drear.

A smile another’s life can touch

by making them their pain forget.

It really doesn’t cost you much,

but what a big return you get.

Recognize Your Blessings

Recognize each blessing God gives,

then name it to make it more real.

By these gifts you know your God lives;

then at mention of His name, kneel.

Let your mouth pour forth His praise

as gratitude flows in your heart.

Show Him honor all of your days

and never from His ways depart.

These blessings show your God is near.

He’ll never leave or forsake you.

So remember and never fear

all problems He will get you through.

I'm His Dad

His hand is small when held in mine.

I can’t believe he’ll soon be nine.

His eyes full of trust looked at me.

His loving dad I’ll always be.

I want to teach him right from wrong

and give him his very own song.

A song that’s just written for him

filling his young life to the brim.

To my son I will make this vow

to train him to live his best now.

By walking with him every day,

teaching him how to love and pray.

Our Journey

There’s a journey we all go through
A rendezvous
It will not wait
We can’t be late

There’s no one who can take our place
Thank God for grace
He’s by our side
Strength to provide

Our God is with us all the way
Both night and day
We’ll win this race
And see God’s face

My Heart's Reply

I walked outside while it was night
Before the morning light
Delighting in the starry sky
Praise was my heart’s reply

God sent a rushing mighty wind
My heartsickness to end
A song poured from within my soul
God sent peace to console

He made clear His presence to me
Doubts from my heart did flee
What a glorious God is He
His wondrous love for me I see
