May God Grant You, Friend, Eternity

May God Grant You ,Friend, Eternity

God grant you , friend ,happiness,

Such a great joyous life of living,

Not happiness just for thyself alone,

For it stems from a life of giving.

By just giving one a tender smile

When a smile will bring some cheer

To a lonely heart or to a lost soul,

Or to someone so near and dear.

Speak a kind word if words are due

Offer them a gift of faith and love.

Just offer a love to your fellowmen

And faith to the Father up Above.

May God grant you , friend ,wisdom,

All through your life that lies ahead.

Never trample a poor outcast soul

For you know he suffered and bled.

Just offer to him of your great wisdom,

Give him the Word he needs to hear.

You know without God He's a lost child,

And to the Father he is so very dear..

And always remember this ,my friend,

Wherever you should happen to be,

This love will span the nationwide,

Or it will cross over the deepest sea.

It will live through the age of Time,

And those years pass by so rapidly.

We know if we live this faith and love,

Our God will be with us friend ,Eternally!

This is another one on of my old ones,

Written Jan. 1959, I am going to try to

mix and match them some ,I have

oldies here that have never been used.

If they don't go over very well I will just

come back to my late poems .When I am

gone I don't think there will be anyone to

take them over ,I wish all of you the very

best always, It seems like I know you all,

Clara

That is brilliant, Clara! Just brilliant!

"This love will span the nationwide,Or it will cross over the deepest sea."

First in Jerusalem, then Judea, then to the very ends of the earth.

I add a comment I made to a response to one of my Hubs:

His love is always ours through His sacrifice. His gift of life is ours to magnify. His gift of the companionship of the Holy Ghost is ours when and while we live righteously so we may follow its promptings. That togetherness (with the Holy Ghost) is one we must honor each day, each moment, even in our choice of surroundings.

Old or new, the Word of God is fresh as ever, and will remain so. You write a good message, Clara.

Take all of your poems, or writings and put them in a folder somewhere safe, and you never know who will read them on down the line. Like I said, the message does not get old.

Lovely hub. Wish I could meet you. Ann

Hello Ann. so glad to hear from you ,I would love to meet you,too,who knows ,maybe someday it will happen. I have notebooks , folder and tablets with poems in them. When I first came on here I was afraid that maybe no one would be interested in the poems .I am really amazed at some of the nice comments and fan mail that I have been getting,I never expected these poems to go to so many places as they are I have plenty more to put on here,and God still gives me more ,I guess I had better get to bed thanks for your nice comments ,love, clara
