Lord, Shine Your Face on Me

Thy Mercy by Daniel Hicks free photo #1859

Lord, may Your face shine,
upon my hurting heart today
for I am just too weary . . .
to face another dreary day.

Cause Your ears to hear,
the supplications of my prayer
for I so need to know
that for me ~ You still care.

Cause Your eyes to see,
the broken wing of this sparrow
for I need Your love to flow
thick throughout my marrow.

Cause Your mouth to bless,
the tenderness of my soul
for I so want once again
to be complete and whole.

Lord, make Your face shine,
upon my hurting heart today
heal me for ~  forgiveness sake
and wash my tears away!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 31:16
New King James Version
“Make Your face shine upon Your servant;
Save me for Your mercies’ sake.”


Oh, These Twilight Years . . .

Conversations by Laurie  Cosgrove free photo #4047

Twilight, twilight years,
oh, Dear Lord you know my fears
please forgive vanities tears
in these twilight years. . .

Brunette hair turning gray,
getting thinner every day
even with all the goop and spray
it goes its own crazy, wild way.

In these twilight years . . .

Arms that once were firm and thin,
now have flabby, wiggle skin
a face once with a velvety grin
now has a hairy upper lip and chin.

In these twilight years. . .

Eyesight going faint and dim,
cataracts make things look too grim
can no longer see the baskets rim
when I go to the old folk’s gym.

In these twilight years . . .

Oh Lord, please give me the grace,
to accept the changes I must face
time is now on its final race
I don’t know how to beat its pace.

In these twilight years. . .

Hearing is no longer at its peak,
everything sounds a little weak
I shout and yell when I speak
sounding like a shrieking geek.

In these twilight years . . .

Forgetting my children’s name,
they make fun of me like it’s a game
but the truth is I feel so lame
they don’t even look the same.

In these twilight years . . .

Where’s it, where’s it, where is it,
I can’t remember where I put it
hunting till I lose both my mind and wit
I search till dawn before I finally quit.

In these twilight years . . .

There’s plenty more to my tale,
but, I choose not to tell
except, I also lost my sense of smell
and my feet and ankles sometimes swell

but, then I don’t want to dwell

On these twilight years. . .
