Everyday Can Be A Struggle ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Everyday can be a struggle,
when from God’s Word we stray
every hour is more miserable
when we don’t trust and  pray.

Everything will look impossible,
when His hope is not there
every problem looks bleaker
when we don’t believe He cares.

Every worry seems unbearable,
when His mercy we don’t claim
every care is more insufferable
when we don’t call upon His name.

Every mountain seems higher,
when we climb it all alone
every valley is a little deeper
when we wander off on our own.

Everyone who goes about,
doing whatever it is they will . . .
will never know the kind of peace
that only God can instill!


Psalm 46:1

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.”

Stand Fast ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Stand fast,
stay firm
be strong
don’t squirm.

Hold on,
cling tight
be ready
for a fight.

Be watchful,
stay sober
be alert
not a dozer.

Remain fixed,
stand sound
until the end
hold ground.

Stand firm,
hold on
be strong
in God’s Son!


1 Corinthians 16:13

Watch ye, stand fast
in the faith, quit you
like men, be strong.

You and I – #Romantic #LovePoetry


You and I


Sweet Entanglement of Blissful Sighs,

You Whisper to my Heart in

Songs only my Spirit knows;

Lover of my Every Whim,

ArchAngel of my Passion and Truest

Minister of my every Dream,

Reach, Sweetest Darling, with Your

Exquisite Hands,

Touch this Love that sends deepest Shivers

Through the very Essence of me;

For All I am,

All I could ever Be,

All I shall ever aspire to become

Already Knows you;

Your most Handsome details,

Your guileless Gaze Whispering

Of All You are,

All You could ever Be,

All you Shall Ever Aspire to Become;

Desire Unified,

Love Eternal,

Most Beguiling Kiss and Enamored Sigh;

Each Second,

Each Heartbeat,


And I

Gypsy Road Trip

McD Perry Mr. C at the height of his career.

Small towns love their heroes, especially when they’re a big star like Perry Como. Canonsburg, PA has never forgotten Perry Como, although the younger generation might not be familiar with his name.

Como statue This statue of Perry Como can be found at City Hall in Canonsburg.

   At the center of town in front of their City Hall, you’ll find a statue of Perry Como. When it was placed there it sang 24/7 but now it just sings sporadically. Como is dressed casually in his traditional style with slacks and sweater. Just down the street, you’ll find a two million dollar McDonald’s packed with memorabilia from locals who went on to stardom.

   Coming from a large family of ten children, Como was the first to be born in America to his immigrant parents, Pietro and Lucia Como.  He never spoke English until…
