Update to my home Church 'Family' 12/2012

Though miles have come between us
By choice, I must concur,
‘Tis great to hear what’s happening
To our ‘family’ over there.

It helps when I am pondering
Of days, seems long ago,
The people I grew up with,
The folk I got to know.

You think of time as motionless,
That all things stay the same,
Reality soon kicks into gear,
We cannot, that, proclaim.

O’er nine years since we left you,
Six, since we first returned,
Fond memories of o’er forty years,
In my heart, have been burned.

Those cannot be deleted,
I wouldn’t want to try,
You’ll be part of our ‘family’
Until the day I die.

Even THEN, we’ll be united
In that gathering up above,
When things will NOT be changing,
We all will know true love.

Things haven’t changed extensively
From last update you read,
Still caring for my clients,
To earn my daily bread.

I always have liked singing,
And hence, I must declare,
I’ve joined the Police Chorus,
A year now, I’ve been there,

It’s fun, when we are traveling
In uniform, to sing,
See someone drive, on mobile phone,
It’s not the legal thing.

One ‘toot’ and they look over,
The Police badge, they do see,
Quite quickly they hang up their call,
See ‘power’, but see not me.

The internet is priceless
It keeps us on a limb
What would have taken weeks to learn
We hear in just a whim.

Though we cannot be o’er there,
We’ll have to cut our losses,
And aye give thanks for having you,
As ‘family’, love, the Rosses.

October 26th 1974 - 2014

Back in the days when love was still 'amour',
In a time when faithfulness was something to allure,
Love between two adults did blossom strong and true,
Leading to a partnership between the two of you.
Soon Miss Leduchowsky to Mrs. Stubbs was changed,
Hence some vows were witnessed, a banquet was arranged,
After time together, a family you became,
Raising four fine children, an honour to your name,
Overcoming trials, you've lasted ages long,
Now four decades later, your love is still as strong.

He did it for me

He did it for you,
He did it for me,
Came down from on high,
To die on a tree.

He bore all my burden
In tense agony,
Took all of my guilt,
Though sinless was He.

Took ALL of my guilt,
For He could foresee
Each time I'd rebel
And not bend the knee.

His love is so fervent,
I know you'll agree,
His promise is true,
You can guarantee.

He came, not in fury
To judge, but to plea,
His life, our redemption,
He saved one like me.

So thank you  my Jesus
Your love set me free,
And how can I show it?
Just live true to thee.

So let us remember
The cross at Calvary,
He did it for you,
He did it for me.
