Into The Final Stretch

Into The Final Stretch
By S.A. Blakley

Into the final stretch, Making a stand, still
Not compromising, Want to do God’s will

Turning away more, Getting mind off things
Hoping God will come, With joy, I’ll sing

Don’t plan to turn back , What once was of old
Believing the good, Coming to behold

Pressing on in life, Moving on the track
Into the final stretch, Don’t want to look back

With Pure Affection

O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

In Righteousness And Peace

Lord God Almighty, in whose Name the founders of this country won liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations then unborn: Grant that we and all the people of this land may have grace to maintain our liberties in righteousness and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Looking All Around

Looking All Around
By S. A. Blakley

Looking all around, Viewing what can see
Beautiful insight, Oh how can this be?

Amazed in knowing, God’s beauty surrounds
Everything herein, God’s mercy abounds

The horizon stands, Yet, beyond our sight
Wonder, what’s ahead? Moving toward His Light

Salvation He brings, To all comes will see
Looking all around, Beauty, let it be

Trying To Get With It

Greeting to you! Happy 2nd Half of 2015 and the 3rd quarter. I’ve been on my journey searching for my family history. I’m trying to get with it.

I haven’t been journaling much here. I’m on my other sites. I’m on twitter about every day. It’s not like a blog. But, like sharing things.

I hope all is coming along with you. I can’t believe that the 4th of July is just about here. I’ve been hearing the noise. LOUD too.

I think I can survive this 4th. I didn’t go out last year. And I don’t think I will this year. No. I’m not getting old. Wise is more of the word. LOL

May we learn to do what we can. May the Lord keep us in tune with His Spirit. May we all enjoy the things that we love to do. Amen.

Happy 4th U.S.A. Be Safe@
Thanks for reading,
Susan

At Closure At Rest

At Closure At Rest
By S.A. Blakley

At closure, at rest, Shaking off the dust
Cease thinking of past, Moving on, a must

Dealt with the pain, Can’t say any more
Allow God to heal, Don’t open up sore

So let the Lord guide, You on through the end
Keep pressing forward, Faith soar into wind

God is guiding you, Be calm and relax
At closure at rest, Making an impact

Step Out In The Faith

Step Out In The Faith
By S.A. Blakley

Stepped out in the faith, Not knowing what’s next
Holding on keep up, Get into context

Each month by payments, And can’t miss a beat
Have to have income, In order to meet

The needs of life’s must, In dong God’s will
Have to keep moving, To pay all the bills

Believing the best, In all that to come
Step out in the faith, Not thinking it’s dumb
