Rosary Defined

Rosary Defined

The rosary may be just a chaplet of beads,
Its meaning is clearly seen,
Every bead is a hymn of praise
To the Mother of God – our Queen.
.
The 5 Joyful Mysteries tell a tale,
Of a virgin so meek and mild,
Her happiness in bearing a son
And watching him grow from a child.
.
The 5 Sorrowful Mysteries that follow,
Speak of Mary’s anguish & pain,
Her beloved son was crucified,
So that heaven mankind would gain.
.
The 5 Glorious Mysteries proclaim to the world,
That Mary was crowned a Queen,
By God the Father in heaven,
The world bows its head in esteem.
.
So, when you say the Rosary,
You are greeting a lady of grace,
You are praising her son, Lord Jesus,
Who redeemed the whole human race.
.

Poem : Still He Walked

Jesus on way to Calvary

He could hear the crowds screaming “crucify” “crucify”…
He could hear the hatred in their voices,
These were his chosen people.
He loved them,
And they were going to crucify him.
He was beaten, bleeding and weakened… his heart was broken,
But still He walked.

He could see the crowd as he came from the palace.
He knew each of the faces so well.
He had created them.
He knew every smile, laugh, and shed tear,
But now they were contorted with rage and anger…his heart broke,
But still He walked.

Was he scared?
You and I would have been
So his humanness would have mandated that he was. He felt alone.
His disciples had left, denied, and even betrayed him.
He searched the crowd for a loving face and he saw very few.
Then he turned his eyes to the only one that mattered
And he knew that he would never be alone.
He looked back at the crowd, at the people who were spitting
At him, throwing rocks at him and mocking him and he knew
That because of him, they would never be alone.
So for them, He walked.

The sounds of the hammer striking the spikes echoed through
The crowd. The sounds of his cries echoed even louder,
The cheers of the crowd, as his hands and feet
Were nailed to the cross, intensified with each blow.
Loudest of all was the still small voice inside his
Heart that whispered “I am with you, my son”,
And God’s heart broke.
He had let his son walk.

Jesus could have asked God to end his suffering,
But instead he asked God to forgive.
Not to forgive him, but to forgive the ones who were persecuting him.
As he hung on that cross, dying an unimaginable death,
He looked out and saw, not only the faces in the crowd,
But also, the face of every person yet to be,
And his heart filled with love.
As his body was dying, his heart was alive.
Alive with the limitless, unconditional love he feels for each of us.
That is why He walked.

When I forget how much My God loves me,
I remember his walk.
When I wonder if I can be forgiven,
I remember his walk.
When I need reminded of how to live like Christ,
I think of his walk.
And to show him how much I love him,
I wake up each morning, turn my eyes to him,
And I walk.

Let Me Be Your Vessel Lord

Grace like rain

To grow in God’s grace and knowledge
spend time each day in His Word;
To think we can grasp it all on our own
without doubt can be totally absurd!

We must have His words of wisdom
to daily mature in Him;
Each day will take us to a new level
and in that we can surely win!

To have His grace and knowledge
must be our greatest goal;
Walking out into the dark to reach
that precious one Lost soul.

We may be just a vessel
Made of simply clay;
But he can mold and shape us
in His own perfect way!

My Prayer today is simple
I choose to take up my sword !!
and I say one thing with all my heart
Today!!!

Let Me Be Your Vessel Lord
Today!!!
Let Me Be Your Vessel Lord
