Oklahoma City

Poem By Susan Rickerl

Astonished by the act today
of careless, reckless souls
Destroying families ties in a minute
of not knowing why.
Across the land the news was heard
of the bombs in Oklahoma City
How could this be? We ask ourselves
in the land we call the free.
The nation in frustration,
poured out their generosity
Through their love and prayers,
and all the volunteers
came forth without hesitation.
Together we stand
against the impurities of man
to protect the innocence of our land.
For with God’s protective arms
it will shield us from the storms,
of the creatures who crawl with an evil scorn.

Vision Of Tomorrow

He walks on three legs,
and has the vision of tomorrow
A solitude no other man can experience.
Knowing of what will be, and the desire to change what is

Heavenly Father

You are so powerful and you love unconditionally
that you guide us with your hand
and lend us not into temptation
which help us to be strong mentally.
