Farewell To Payne Stewart (In Memorial)

Golf is a game of the heart,
With a love that’s meant to last,
This brings to mind Payne Stewart,
A class act for sure has passed.

Flying high in the wild blue yonder,
Above the masses below,
Payne and those who were with him,
Why did they have to go?

He was more than just the clothes,
This loving husband and father of two,
That’s the number of U.S. Opens won,
Why? What did he do?

A champion of the greens,
A master when buried in the sand,
On his way to the TPC,
The Lord had other plans.

Faith vs. Doubt

Feed your faith and starve your doubt,
Confess the Lord Jesus with your mouth,
Praise His holy name with a shout,
Drive the demons of the devil out.

First and foremost read the word,
Speak it aloud to be sure it’s heard,
Don’t be like Peter starting to cuss & swear,
Tell the world you know Jesus is there.

Doubt is deceitful and doubt is doom,
Doubt is defeated and doubt is gloom,
Faith is victory and faith is success,
Faith is the word and it brings out the best.

Imagine the Colts or Steelers being 0 & 16,
Is it sinking in now, understand what I mean?
How about the New York Yankees at 0 & 162?
What other way can I make it clearer to you?

Les Paul (In Memorial) 1915-2009

This looks like just another ho-hum year but wait,
6/9/15 has produced a talent, unparalleled & great,
How come? Many births this month and year so far,
Delivered today was the father of the electric guitar.

Big band, jazz, rhythm & blues, classical, rock & roll,
6 strings was never before blessed with so much soul,
Oh yeah, with music so unique and full of life that’s all,
Simply a sound unlike any other thanks Mr. Les Paul.

A guitar is the heartbeat, oh yeah, leader of the band,
Rhythm, orchestra, gently cradled by woman or man,
Showcased in front, Hendrix, Clapton, Vaughn, King,
Ellis in the background, Rait and others make it sing.

Benson, Montgomery, where to begin, where to stop?
Cray, Perry, Prince, Slash & Van Halen, made it pop,
All the way to 94 even Les himself could carry a tune,
His passing only means showtime is now on the moon.

Sweet Inspiration (cover of Sweet Sensation by S. Mills)

Something strange came over me,
Cause I never felt this way,
There’s no place I’d rather be,
Than here with You to stay.

Can’t explain,
What your love has done for me, (love has done for me)
Keeps me warm and satisfied,
Jesus you make me see.

Sweet Inspiration, (by His stripes)
Calvary, my salvation,
Sweet inspiration, (by His stripes)
It’s a heavenly, love salvation.

Though my feet are on the ground,
My mind is in the sky,
Such a thrill, this ecstasy,
Jesus you're the reason why.

Abraham or Thomas?

Abraham or Thomas, two opposing views,
In kingdom principles, which one are you?
Hailing from Missouri, the show me state?
Or, is there sincerity walking only by faith?

There is such a thing as the Faith Hall of Fame,
Moses, Joshua, Caleb are just a few of the names,
Numbers chapter 13, to believe God ten did refuse,
And they caused the death of over 2 million Jews.

Is your faith like Abraham, trusting in God’s word?
Thomas had to see first, not believing what he heard,
Which will the Lord honor, as the other is cast aside,
1 is besieged by truth,1 is plagued with foolish pride.

So, whose name is mentioned most in bible scripture?
Between them, tell me the one that’s a positive picture?
Stop for a minute in your life, taking a good look around,
Abraham or Thomas, where are you likely to be found?

Because I Could Not Stop For Death

Do you remember that chilly, bright October day?
When youthful love argued over what I dare say,
Was an endless, emotional, scornful kind of song,
Started at midnight, carried it to the break of dawn.

Do you remember my insistence of your infidelity,
Interfering with the river of life’s flowing harmony,
You & not me fighting over my engagement day,
Ha, you left on your own I did not send you away.

I remember what I said, quivering voice stressed,
I only gave our relationship nothing but the best,
Selfishly you return to destroy peace I’ve earned,
It’s certainly obvious there’s still lots to be learned.

And even though it is your consumer given right,
No one exit’s the Air Bus 20,000 feet in mid-flight,
Jump I did because the turbulence made me sick,
Go to the pet shop & purchase a dog to do tricks.

Chick-Fil-A vs. Chicago

With all the violence going on in the world there is one controversy,
And it is not about an Alderman's or Chicago Mayor's idiosyncrasy,
It has to do with all pertinent things notwithstanding, a Chick-Fill-A,
The denial of opening an eatery because of what the owner had to say.

Mind you, this is Chicago where gang violence is on par with Iraq,
Going to public school is like Afghanistan as you might come back,
Certified dead, not from RPG's or IED's but from gunshot wounds,
7 year-old Heaven Sutton killed selling lemonade was way too soon.

Rham Emanuel lashed out at thugs responsible, "Who raised you? "
Well, actually Mr. Mayor, the exact same question is proposed too,
For your agreeing with Alderman Proco "Joe" Moreno on this ban,
As company President Dan Cathy agrees with God & not with man.

'Chick-Fil-A values are not Chicago values, ' this mayor has said,
I should hope so, imagine eating chicken fingers ending up dead,
While drug transactions, car jacking & all felonies continue to rise,
I've never heard of death by gunshot for not turning over your fries.

God Will Provide A Way Through Faith

God will provide a way through faith,
To all those who sincerely believe,
In the almighty name of Christ Jesus,
As His children we are destined to receive.

Life is full of tests,
Given and graded every day,
Not only by what you do,
Also by what we say.

Jesus is our teacher,
The outline is very clear,
Follow His program closely,
There’s never a reason for fear.

Report cards will be given,
The final grade is on Judgment Day,
There is no need for Cliff’s notes,
Teacher has clearly shown the way.

Zilch + Nothing = Zero

What if Christ Jesus had not paid,
Tell me who would ever be saved?
There’s no more 10% on lay-a-way,
Payment in full must be made today.

He didn’t pay a little now, a little later,
It would not have made Him our Savior,
We no longer have such a thing as C.O.D.,
What other than the blood could set us free?

In a war some soldiers sacrifice their lives,
Made hero’s by those who couldn’t get by,
What about one who did it for all mankind?
A greater love than this we will never find.

It is a word thrown about lightly you know,
A 100 yard interception doesn’t make a hero,
Cops, fire fighters, it’s life or death everyday,
Whether your burned to a crisp or blown away.

Christian Poetry II

Christian Poetry is a very funny thing,
You never know what is going to be liked,
Should I leave it like this or make a change?
That’s wrong, on second thought it does sound right,

Religion is an especially touchy subject,
With so many different spiritual & academic views,
Over a hundred worship sites in Cleveland alone,
Then there are God’s chosen people, AKA the Jews.

Jesus was, no not really, had a child, and say’s who?
Mary Magdalene is not whom He was married to,
Made millions of bucks from the movie and book,
Do I really need to take a second look?

Of course I don’t because that’s not my faith,
I refuse to stand in line and wait,
To see a flick I know to be totally untrue,
If you want to believe that stuff it's up to you.
