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.

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

           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.

The first and last oil painting by my Bill  Fall of 2012

     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.

Silent footsteps....

         By Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

I walk along this lonely path of life
Your foot falls silent here.
But loving you was wonderful and 
I wouldn't have missed a year!

Memories crowd my mind and heart
So many I am blessed!
Our love did not stop when losing you
It just grew stronger and became a greater part
Of all that I am today.

Two years have passed since you left me here
All alone and feeling blue
But my belief is strong that we shall meet 
In God's heaven and I will again be joined with you.

♥ ♥♥♥♥♥♥

                                  by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart

When first I fold my hands in prayer,
All those far away are present here.
If not in sight, they are in my heart
God unites us in every part
  Together on this day.

Another Thanksgiving memory
With family, a gift from God to me
I will look back on this day, 
  and smile at what was your way
To make me laugh in times past.

The warmth of candles, oven and love
Filling the kitchen, my heart and some~
Left over to spill on days ahead
I'll remember all as I break my bread
On ordinary days.

All God's love from up above
As the Egret flies and Mallards come
Visiting the bank in Autumn sun,
Gracing my world with the Holy One.

Thanking you for every tiny thing
You have ever given to me
For without you Lord and my memories,
Where would this soul be?



     by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart 11/24/2010

Good night burning embers in the sky
Good night Mallards floating by
Good night silhouetted trees against the sky
Good night to all the birds that fly
Silently above the clouds to find
Their roosting place that will be kind
      Until the morning light...
