people may judge by only your cover.
when you open up they will discover
what's misunderstood becomes apparent:
the chatter about you was quite errant.

their misbeliefs should not be your problem;
stay kind, committed and free to blossom.
no matter what they do or say, dont doubt
your worth or beauty for truth will win out.

your cover may be worn, torn to tatters;
keep shining! for it's God's love that matters!

things sometimes will go wrong
and the road may seem long;
the income may get low
and the bills start to grow;
you need to smile and sigh.
'cause life may seem awry.
step back, rest, but don't quit!
regroup and recommit.
the method for success
is to halt the excess;
make ev'ry moment count;
living is paramount.

there was a man, I called you brother.
good times, bad times...there won't be another.
we shared a last name, house and secrets
a gift from God and now with Jesus.
a built-in relative i didn't choose.
told me like it was; never wanted to see me lose.
made me laugh, made me cry.
asked me tough questions and not happy til he knew why.
didn't all ways see eye to eye
and that's what families do.
can't imagine what life would've been like without you.
positive, warmhearted, devout, strong-willed
almost describes your worth.
won't ever be replaced by anything on this earth.
if God would bring you back again for one more hour or day,
I'd express all my thoughts and have many things to say.

rest in peace.

No jewel shined any brighter than the dazzling Christmas star.
It glowed so radiantly it was seen both near and far.
A beacon to the Christ child as He laid on a bed of hay.
It told to the entire world a King was born that day.
Oh heavenly star keep twinkling - grant us peace and faith and love.
Keep our prayers forever turning to the Lord up above.
T'is the season of caring and warmth and good cheer.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

dear julia,

you have slipped the soured bonds of earth
and will dance in the skies smiling.
upwards you'll climb to heaven's girth
through sun-split clouds and cosmic bling.

you'll do many things not dreamed of:
soaring high in the sunlit sky,
racing the wind to the moon above,
rising up where no eagles fly.

escalating with ease and grace,
all this wandering won't seem odd
while passing through this divine space.
reach out! and touch the face of God!

i'll be looking up at the stars for you with
     a heart full of love.
you are now at peace, forever, safely home
     in heaven above.
let the wind lift your spirit and take you away
     to the arms of the Savior to hold you this day.
rest in peace.
