The Sweetest Kiss

HEAVEN IN A CHILD

I caught a glimpse of Heaven today
When a little child of three
Danced around my flower beds
With a look of blissful glee

I heard a bit of Heaven today
When she giggled while at play
Sounds I’ll carry in my heart
Forever and a day

I felt a bit of Heaven today
When she wooed me with her charms . . .
The sweetest kiss upon my cheek
And a hug from little arms

There’s Heaven in a little child
And you can see it, too
Just watch them with an open heart
That’s all you need to do

               Choices

No one knows what each day holds

      It could be our last

The day that we must answer

      For actions of the past

 

If we could just see ahead

      Might not we change our way

Or set a different course to take

      And toe the line today

 

Would we abstain from sinful ways

      And honor Him above

Would we attempt to do our best

      And prove to Him, our love

 

Will we try His loving patience

       Because it does not wane   

Do we really think our erring ways

       Do not cause Him pain

 

We are His children, that is true

      And we should heed His rules

For the Heaven He has promised us

      Excludes all sinful fools

 

And when we’re gone, it’s much too late

      To say, “I will obey”

So live today as though ‘twas last

      And mend your erring way

          HEAVEN

 

In Heaven there is no sorrow.

No pain nor grief to bear.

You’ll dwell in joyful love and peace,

Joined by your loved ones there.

  HOME AT LAST

 (For Robbie )

                 

The Heavenly Gates were open

          An Angel looked and smiled

For coming up the Golden Path

          Was a sweet innocent child

 

Heaven’s radiance seemed to beckon

          So the child entered in

The Angels plucked their harp strings

          And sang a lovely hymn

 

With tears of pain he brought from earth

          Still damp upon his face

The child stood in wonder

          When he saw the Throne of Grace

 

And then his face brightened

          As he ran to the Throne

Where in the Savior’s arms he felt

          The greatest love known

 

Then all his anguish vanished

          Through Heaven’s tender care

He knew Heaven was really home

          And he’d be happy there.
