Ain't it kind of funny? How time slips away....

Good Afternoon my dear friends and followers!  Such a long time since I last posted.  Life is what happens while a person is making plans.....  So much to appreciate, so little time.

I thought it was a moment that had passed
  But it was half a year or more.
How time has flown since we visited last
  Since you came and knocked upon my door.

I look for you from my window, 
  Hoping to see you on the path,
With your smiling face as you walk
  And your soothing voice as we talk.

The memories are fond and sweet
  Our visits were to me a great treat.
A wonderful respite added to my day
  Even with rain or skies of gray,
You lit up my life, made my day.

So come again, will you not?
  We will have tea and talk a lot.
Because no time passes between 
  Two friends, we just take up 
Where we left off again....

Good Morning God

I awoke so full of love and so inspired as the sunshine filled my humble home and my heart with God's abiding love....

Good Mornin' Lord

   (c)Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

I rose this morn to greet the day
I prayed to God to show me the way
His love a lamp unto my feet
His Son lighting my heart with love
His Sun shining down from above
How blessed I am, How sweet His love.

He gives me a song in my heart each day
He fills my soul with joy as I pray
He shows Himself in every bird and flower
My joy renews hour by hour
Because of His sweet love that saved me.

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





    Thank you so much for coming and com again soon!

Loss of a Friend...




A beautiful heart stopped beating
While God held it in the palm of His hand
We weep for you, Carol, because we are left behind.
But you are now with God and with that thought
We find...Peace.
I will always see your beautiful smile
I never saw you any other way.
And though I will miss the beauty
of all the love you shared,
I know you are now still in His hand
~ in peace.

Saturday Chores

Saturday Chores
        by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart























Saturday again, oh me oh my

The laundry is piled right to the sky
I don't know where it all comes from
We're just two of us but it's quite a sum!
Sort and pile, three today!
I should have done it sooner
As now I have to pay!

Into the dryer one by one
And then it's folding,
That's no fun!
And in between I write these lines,
And peer out the window at beautiful pines
With Sunlight all around me.

Again I'll vow to do some laundry mid-week
And again I will probably instead, seek
Crocheting, drawing, blogging and such
And that is how I end up with so much
Laundry on Saturday Morning!

Easter Song

When the children were young, I wrote a song for Easter.  I was very filled with the spirit and love of the Lord and just wrote what I felt.  I am sorry you cannot hear the music to the words, maybe someday I will make a recording to attach...

This is my Lord
   ♫      ©Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart
This is my Lord,
He died for me
Upon the cross
Now I am free.

I see the blood
I feel the pain
Now blood is wine
And bread is He.

This is my Lord
How can it be?
My Lord has Risen
For you and me. ♫

From my Christian heart to yours.

KINDNESS



Whose heart is hurting today, who can you comfort?  When you give, you receive and kindness is rewarded.







KINDNESS   
           by Kerrie O’Hearn Marquart     3/09/14 

Kindness is its own reward, this I know ‘tis true
For when I show kindness to others, 
It makes my heart swell with joy
As Lord, I feel filled with You.

There are those who need comfort
And we may be the only one 
Who can comfort them this day.
You never know what your Hug can do
When given in a Jesus way.

Sadness is a lonely place when one feels alone
But sharing the burden with others
Lessens the heaviness they hold
Be Christian sisters and brothers
Welcome them into the fold.

A heart may be hurting, 
A tear may be ready to spill
But you can make a difference
If only, only you will.
Bless you for your kindnesses
For God loves a cheerful giver ~still.

                          2 Corinthians 9

Remembering
     by Kerrie O’Hearn Marquart

Valentine’s Day and I am remembering
Sitting by the fire on the shore
The Lake so quiet except for gentle 
  Lapping at the rocky shore.

You and I so in love 
Your arm around my shoulder
How wonderful we made memories
I could enjoy now that I am much older.
  Now that you are gone….

Tears sting my eyes but you were so sweet
And when we married
My life was complete
  For I loved you more than life.

I remember walking in snow, 
Your hand completely covering mine
To keep mine from the getting cold.
  We were enraptured.

There could never be another for me
God chose you especially for me
A precious gift from up above
And now you dwell in His sweet Love
  Still watching over me.

At least I have Sweet memories
Of you and youth and Love.
Even though I cannot see
 You dwelling now above.

I look forward to meeting you by the gate
When I am enfolded in God’s love and Grace
To dwell with you once more.
  In the clouds forever up above.
