for New Years

I've no to do list Spirit because whatever You'd ask of me is all I have to accomplish. My date book is full because all my days I've booked with You Father. What would Jesus do I ask you? Spend eternity with Me! All I have I offer Mary. She is the only way to her Christ Child. Whom, is the only Way, to the Father, Jesus. All my achievements all the time Mary gives to the Son. With the Spirit, 3 in 1, hers to offer to God, not holding back, I rest peacefully O Raboni.
How can I rest when Joseph was such a provider; I have a honey do list - the length. The agenda is booked solid with a World in sore need of the Good Physician. St. Joseph, Mary's Most Chaste Spouse: see this sexuality taught in N. America would destroy the Holy Family, the Infant is not wanted, the aged just let go, the poor are not welcome in the Kingdom, we do not seek the lost along the Way. St. Joseph pray to the Lord for us, for our dying Canada. Build again.

In Your Barnyard - Christmas

When; if I were an ox
- and all I have to share
is my food trough, except
for some straw, crude and bare.

My dumb owner; of my stall,
He's no other friend with me,
The rest of his rooms are full:
He sent away a needy couple early.

Now him, wild, invites them in,
Tonight, I've a mule companion,
Mary, her betrothed, a baby Jesus,
New, here I may give my manger.

As she wraps her newborn,
In swaddling, Christ, in stillness,
Lets the ass' and my thoughts, heard.
Hers' a gift, planned to end illness.

For there, we hear of angels,
Tell these shepherds of peace, good news,
Good will, this Lord, Saviour brings,
With lambs, rams, and into my shed, ewes.

Now my shelter would be full.
Donkey says we've no lack of friends.
The family stays for, its, their ritual,
And there's more, it's before my story ends.

Into the stable stroll camels.
Theirs, mandarins with three gifts -
Before the Infant-King, Priest and human sacrifice -
We all bow, low, kneel and with me worships

My Creator, God and true friend
Who accepts mine, with, He's to sacrifice
Heaven and Life, completes my barn,
Completes my lack, thus shall suffice.

With you I've shared my story,
With Mule I shared my hay;
I share my life with this babe of glory,
Jesus will share His with all come His Way.

Mary was humble and lowly.
The Kings bowed and prayed.
Joseph and the shepherds became holy
Like the Babe they worshipped in my stead.

My owner eventually prospered;
Became kind and generous to all,
For by show of care for Jesus:
They are blessed, when you regard my stall.

2 short pieces from before this Presentation of Mary '16

Thank You Jesus:
-for the cross, Yours forever; mine for now
-for the Eucharist for eternity; for me here
-for where I am presently; for where You are, everywhere
-for my eternal destiny; for coming to us from there
-for meeting my need, for sending me to meet others'
-for the Church, my family and Your family, mankind
-for the Sabbath, for rest, and Salvation for us lost
-for holiness, Holy Lord, Holy saints, Holy Souls.

Lord you hung upon a tree
Did it for the likes of me
Help me to hold you in highest regard
As my saviour your child guard

Mary you saw your son dead
A crown of thorn on his head
Help me to make a spouse my God
As you took the Spirit Lord

Joseph you look down from High
Like a parent you must sign
Grant us grace the we might be
A child of God Eucharisticly
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost

Marian thought

If (some of my own words) from 6th Sept. '16
If Jesus is "the Bright and Morning Star " ; then Mary must be the first star we see tonight.
If Jesus is the only way to the Father: Mary is the only way to Jesus I'd want to go.
If Jesus is the answer, then Mary is the question.
If Jesus is my all in all, Mary is the Mother of all.
If Jesus is Raboni ; then Mary is Instructress.
If Jesus is my Master: Mary my Mistress.
If Jesus is Lord, then Mary is my Lady.
If Jesus is my brother, Mary my sister.
If Jesus is the Prince of Peace, then Mary is Queen of Reconciliation.
If Jesus saves: Mary rejoices in Heaven.
If Jesus sets the captive free, then Mary love surrounds.
If Jesus is Wonderful, Counselor, Mary powerful aid.
Where there is Jesus, there there is Mary.
When there is Mary then there is Jesus.
What is so close a friend? Who is Christ but Mary's own dear Son?
Whom would our Queen serve but Jesus, Amen!

After some time ...

I'm going to see - the woman at the well:
Discuss my hypocrisy with Nicodemus Pharisee,
See all we had to sell; with the rich rule.
I'm going to be - at a wedding feast:
With the apostle Matthew, and little Zacchaeus;
The wine will be in plenty.
I'm goin to get at hug - from my Mother Mary -
And my own dear mum:
Mention my own small way, with St. Therese;
Sing this song with St. Cecilia.
I'm not going - to miss the mark:
King David as friend,
Like Elisha, in a whirlwind;
I'm going to talk with my Maker.
I'm going to walk - with my Master:
Blaze on, with Spirit;
I'm on my Way to Heave.
This story - is never ending:
Heroes, martyrs, saints and sinners forgiven;
By grace we're all taken to Heaven -
Disciples up to Mercy:
Prophet's, priests and kings;
Never ending Glory!
Are you coming - with me?
There are many:
 I'd like you to get to know, witness;
About Jesus testify.

New Years

Awaken in me dear Lord
A new hope in the New year
Give me a peace a midst change
Your constant peace so dear

Help me to chart a way
Which You are the One to light
As You speak through Holy Word
We thankful are made bright

Each day awake with You
A new day regard the true Amen
Sixteen years have come and gone
Since I first sang this song
My millennium project give up smoking
A success no joking

I offer Jesus my suffering
Now my Saviour is buffering
Pain from guilt here set free
Penitent ransomed daily me

God of mercy Your tenderness surrounds
Peaceful bliss is todays sound
