The power of Prayer

is the fastest thing on Earth..
It reaches God before you even say it.

"Every second of every day is God's gift to us.  Enjoy the present"


"Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let There Be Peace on Earth
The peace that was meant to be

With God as our Father
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.

With ev'ry step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment and live
Each moment in peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me"

Vince Gill's  song from 1993

COVID-19

 

We’ve been instructed to “shelter in place,”

“Wash your hands,” and “cover your face.”

We must stay inside away from our friends

‘Til the threat of this deadly virus ends.

 

The coronavirus is what it’s called.

Schools are closed and some businesses stalled.

People are hoarding things from the store

For fear they won’t be allowed to get more.

 

Doctors and nurses must tend to the ill

Until they too become sick, while fearing they will.

“Social distancing” are the words of the day.

People must stay six feet away.

 

TV and internet constantly inform us all.

And Zoom is a way friends can join in one call.

Musicians are offering free concerts on air.

What a soothing way to share comfort and care!

 

Individuals and companies are now making masks.

People help neighbors with everyday tasks.

Car companies make ventilators to help meet the demand.

More are needed in hospitals all over the land.

 

Scientists work on vaccines to keep people well.

If they’re successful only time can tell.

There is no cure yet to help us live.

We must follow advice that the experts give.

 

Many people will die.  It’s just a fact, 

But there are guidelines that we all must enact;

“Stay at home, wash your hands, and shield your face!”

Trust the world will survive through God’s good grace.
