Our Little Lizard Friend

Our little lizard friend 
Sits on our old chair
Soaking up the sunshine
Living rent free without care

On his sunroom throne He perches
Thinking He is in control
And believes that He is master
 Of all he sees below

How little does he realize
That we watch him all day long
Hoping he stays safe from birds
And the black snake in the lawn

And our friend is a reminder
That God watches us each day
Welcoming us into His home
To forever freely stay

The lizard you can take in your hands,
    yet it is in kings’ palaces.
Proverbs 30:28 ESV

When Cicadas Sing

In the quiet of the dawn
When cicadas start to sing
And our children are still dreaming
And the mockingbird takes wing

Then comes the Savior calling
Come away and rest with me
Find the strength to face the day
And in troubles you will see

That the battle is not won
By great power or good plans
But when each day begins with prayer 
Then God’s grace will make you stand!

And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: 
for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
Mark 6:31 KJV

Safely Home!

Some fellows hit those Home Runs
Some doubles or Sac-Fly's
But not so many can steal home
As to the plate they slide

Stealing home base is no cinch
Nor for the faint of heart
They must tag up before they try
To get their running start

And with us it is the same
If we want to move ahead
Before God will allow advance
We must go back instead

To tag up with who we've been
And where we have gone wrong
Only then by His own grace
Can we run safely home!
