Infinite Mercy by Eva Ruby Austin

              As I rise from my bed each morning
                To begin the chores of the day
              I thank the Lord for His goodness
                 With my lips I silently pray,
              I pray that He'll guide my footsteps,
                 That I may not falter or fall;
              That I may be true and faithful
                  And loving to one and all.
               My God is One who will answer
                   With what is best for me.
               He knows the path that I follow,
                  And the pitfalls I cannot see.
               I'll trust Him for the future,
               I'll trust Him to endless day;
               For He in his infinite Mercy
                 Will pilot me all the way.

In Memory of Mom by Eleanor Lambert - Bermuda

In Memory of Mom

It's hard to believe 24 years have gone by,
Since our precious Mom went to her home on high.

To be with her Saviour, she served and loved,
To the home prepared for her in Heaven above.

Since  Dad left before her, children grown and left home,
She found herself most of the time very much alone.

Her family phoned or visited as often as we could,
Even her eldest daughter had to fly and fly she would.

A joy to be with her, playing games or browsing stores,
And when all alone she wrote great poetry by the score.

Many things had happened since she was called away,
Lots of things to share with her had she been left to stay.

Every day at different times memories come our way,
Though absent she is missed, loved, dear, every day.
