THE OLD WEATHERED VIRGIN STATUE

Posted on by Donna Sue

      The weathered old Virgin statue, Next to the garden stairs, Stands in silent witness to So many whispered prayers. Wrapped up in frozen stillness As sleet is raining down, Icicles form around her like An icy winter gown.  The arctic winds and frigid cold, The worst this year has seen, Blast frosty […]

HER CHRISTMAS SOLDIER

Posted on by Donna Sue

    Alone again at Christmas Her soldier gone to war She feels the sting of helpless tears Just like she did before. She wonders where he’s at tonight In bunk or sandy hole Just wishing she could hold him tight To warm her aching soul. While the Christmas lights are blinking Her thoughts are […]

O LITTLE BOY OF BETHLEHEM

Posted on by Donna Sue

    O littl boy of Bethlehem Asleep in Mary’s arms Tonight you sleep the sleep of peace No fear this night of harm   Wrapped up in love with Mother’s kiss Her lips upon your brow Your new bright eyes look trustingly As shepherds stoop to bow.   O Child of Love and Prince […]

THE CERAMIC NATIVITY SET

Posted on by Donna Sue

                        In the darkness of the closet Where no one else could see, There sat a hidden manger scene My Mom had given me. On the shelf above the linens Pushed back and out of sight, So I wouldn’t have to look at it […]

IT IS CHRISTMAS TIME WITHOUT YOU

Posted on by Donna Sue

It is Christmas time without you, And I fear the silent nights, The decorated Christmas trees, Yards filled with Christmas lights.   This holiday I face alone, The first without you here. I could never have imagined, You gone this time last year.   Stacks of Christmas cards unopened, Pretty presents yet to give, All […]

I HAVE BEEN HERE FOR A LONG TIME!

Posted on by Donna Sue

I have been here for a long time, As you can surely see. All friends and family dead and gone, None left to pray for me. If only I had known in life, What waited past death’s door, I would have sacrificed and prayed, More than I had before. I did just what I had […]

I’M WAITING HERE FOR YOU

Posted on by Donna Sue

Caught up in life and troubled thoughts, I could not see the faces, Of people whom I bumped into, Like I was running races. With things to do, deadlines to meet, I didn’t need distractions, Or condemnation for my haste, And thoughtless, selfish actions. Then in my ear I heard a shout, A voice out […]

OUR LADY OF FATIMA, A PEACE PLAN

Posted on by Donna Sue

(Our Lady of Fatima Shrine, Bison, Oklahoma) ***** ***** ***** ***** So many years have come and gone, Since they knelt at Mary’s feet, Three children born of peasant folk, Who tended to their sheep. Some prophecies have passed their time, But there’s a few that thrive. Our Lady’s promises of peace, When will that […]

SAINT MONICA, PLEASE PRAY FOR ME

Posted on by Donna Sue

      My tears were falling once again As I bowed my head to pray. It wasn’t for the first time that I ran to church today.   In the coolness of the chapel, I sank down to my knees, Where pain and disappointment seemed To all but smother me.   My husband and […]
