Granddaughter, Hope, and our great-grandson, Xander. Precious!

Lion-Hearted


21369C58-2D9E-492C-A7FE-9F8C7E7A2A5E

Inside a limited MS body

Lived a Lion-Hearted soul.

When words refused to form

Her smile spoke bright and whole.

Her spirit never faltered

Though her limbs could not obey.

She left behind her courage

When she joined her Lord that day.

She was an inspiration

With her never-ending love.

Now Lion-hearted Karen

Is with her Lord above.

But she hasn’t really left us;

She lives on in everyone

Who had the joy of knowing her.

Oh, she’s dancing with the Son!

God Bless

Karen Claassen

– a true Lion of God!

Perfect Mother’s Day


It wasn’t breakfast

Of eggs and bacon

Served with a smile

While I lie in bed.

It wasn’t brunch

Of eggs benedict

On homemade muffins

With honey and caviar.

It wasn’t dinner

At the Ritz

With choice of menu

And diamond surprises.

It was beautiful roses

Selected with love

From CostCo

And a special card.

It was a warm hug

And a good morning kiss

Delivered from my

Life-long best friend.

It is the best present

A mom can ever receive:

Precious and sincere words

With appreciation from a grateful heart.

Perfect Mother’s Day indeed!

Mother-in-Love

My angel of a daughter

lives in Switzerland.

We had the privilege

of spending three weeks

with her and family

and staying with Denise,

our daughter’s “Mother-in-Love.”

When we arrived

at her lovely maison

in the city of Sierre, Valais,

this angel welcomed us.

Back home after our

memorable, amazing visit

the angel sits in my sanctuary

as a constant reminder

of Denise and her angelic

love  –  and our dear DeDe –

nestled in the faraway Alps.

Oh, that every mother-in-law

might be lovingly known as

an angelic Mother-in-Love!

Unwrap the Beauty


Foggy morning

Drizzly day

Tomorrow sun

Will come our way.

Trees are thirsty

Flowers bloom

Drinking deeply

In rainy gloom.

Like the flowers

I, too, drink

Living waters from

God’s endless sink.

Daily thirsting

Drinking my fill

Living appreciably

In His Will.

Content to listen

Intent to grow

Letting His grace

And His love flow.

Foggy morning

Come what may

I’ll find beauty

In this day.

Raise my spirits

Lift my voice

Sing with the birds

Joy’s my choice.

Enjoy this day

Clouds will lift

Unwrap the beauty

Today’s a gift!

Find the Beauty


Foggy morning

Drizzly day

Tomorrow sun

Will come our way.

Trees are thirsty

Flowers bloom

Drinking deeply

In the gloom.

Like the flowers

I, too, drink

Living water from

God’s endless sink.

Daily thirsting

Drinking my fill

Living appreciably

In His Will.

Content to listen

Intent to grow

Letting His love

And His grace flow.

Foggy morning

Come what may

I’ll find beauty

In this day.

So whatever

Your day may bring

Look for beauty

Hear birds sing.

Raise your spirits

Smile and lift

Your voice, too.

Today’s a gift.

Unwrap it!

Never Hopeless


FBEFC345-D6B3-4192-8599-F23160B688F9

Stuck in Paris

Doesn’t sound bad?

Headed to see

The family we had

in Sierre, Switzerland.

 

Air France strike

Cancelled flight.

Trip to Geneva

Out of sight.

Seemed hopeless.

 

Pray and ask for prayer.

Intervention immediate.

God sent Angel Valerie

From heaven expedient.

Booked on next flight.

 

Flight was overbooked

But two seats were found.

We weren’t stuck in Paris

Waiting on the ground.

Never feel hopeless!

 

God is good

All the time.

All the time

God is good.

Amen?
