I Challenge You This Valentine's Day


I Challenge You This  Valentine's Day
We have this day called Valentine's Day
To honor  those we love
It's easy to remember them
Our soul's light as a dove

Were Love abounds and Angels sing
Emotions tender strong
We share our inner feelings
Showing loved ones they belong

We spread our wings as if to fly
And gently wrap them round
Embracing our very breath
As loved ones make hearts pound

If we could open our mind and soul
We'd find there's more to see
So many lonely people
Needing a hand from you and me

I challenge you this Valentine's Day
It's a perfect day to start
show the world compassion
Spreading Love from Heart to Heart

Giving a piece of  pocket and soul
Your spirit it will lift
Share your Love and Hope
Make this your new Valentine's gift

Give of yourself to people today
And you will find the key
A Heart that overflows
Will find Love that will always be

Happy Valentine's Day to One and All!
I wish you all Life's Best
A heart that's filled with Love
May you and yours be  Blessed

IT'S IN THE GENTLE CALLING

IT'S IN THE GENTLE CALLING


Softly speaks the wonder of the evening sky
Listen to the sound, its' soft and cooing sigh
Evening racing day and day saying good bye
It's in this gentle calling we hear the evening cry

The message that she brings is one of mother's Love
The beating of her heart soft as a flying dove
The sight the sound the feel, is all encompassing of
A heart, a mind and soul, speaking softly from above


Now before you turn and go, listen softly to the call
The whisper's  meant for you, from Forever and the All
The time we have between the dawn and evening's fall
Is our time to live in Love, standing strong and tall

Don't look back to long you see, for its ahead we laud
It's not the road behind us that can trip us as we trod
On this road we travel, we're troubled or we're awed
So listen gently to the voice and hear the words of God


Then follow in the footsteps as you walk into the night
For God so loved the world, he gave Eternal Light
And even in the darkness, you'll have unending sight
Hand in hand you'll travel, with courage and with might

It's in this gentle calling we  live out each new day
Listen, heaven whispers, there's so much more to say
Evening falls, we bow our heads, say "Thank You" as we pray
For in the sounds of silence, we hear "Love: it is The Way"
