Words of Wisdom (Happy Father’s Day)


in your effort
every hard put effort
your heart is seen
your heart is known

and the struggling will lighten
there will come joy with your juggling

keep the faith
in the darkness
keep the faith
-in your willingness…

the Lord is there
He is with you
the Lord is there
He’s telling you

with your every effort
your heart is seen

in all your juggling
your heart is seen

in all your struggling
the Lord He sees

there is an answer there for you…


your faith must be stronger than mine
i have prayed – and i know
i trust

you will worry yourself to death
praying and then spending the day in torment
your faith – you must listen to it

is that enough preaching from me for the moment?

my faith tells me to sit up and raise my head
go about the day and let it go
give it up to God

and your faith
must be stronger
than mine…


if in life you’re juggling
in life you’re struggling

don’t give up
keep daring
-greet everyone and smile

the Lord loves you today
He loves you beyond your death
in our humanity He is there

with your struggling
with your juggling

everyday on the hour
fighting in our demanding
not knowing the hour
-when will be the answer

don’t give up
keep on daring
every hour on the hour
trust in adoration and the hours

with your struggling
with your juggling

don’t give up
-greet everyone with a smile

every visit on the hour
with your struggling

…..with your juggling
