  1. That Word Cheerfulness
    by William Makepeace Thackeray


    What indeed does not that word cheerfulness imply?
    It means a contented spirit;
    it means a pure heart;
    it means a kind, loving disposition;
    it means humility and charity;
    it means a generous appreciation of others,
    and a modest opinion of self.

    by taking one step after another

    Margaret E. Bruner

  22. Genius I Met
    Poet: Jaymac, 1988


    Genius I met the other day
    He looked at me and walked away
    What did he see, thought I with frown,
    Fellow genius or happy clown?
    I laughed, then, at my own self-folly
    (And safe beneath my humour's brolly)
    I walked with lightsome feet grown free
    By the happy clown I strive to be!

    Each day will set its proper task.

  28. How Sweet To Hear
    Poet: John McLeod, 1989


    How sweet to hear in evening's hush
    A song-thrush caroling its joy,
    When sunset paints its carmine blush
    And day's dull straws no more employ
    The mind, and as one's rest draws near
    A few quiet moments linger yet
    To count rich memories so dear . . .
    The love of Life one can't forget!

  30. The Power Of Little Things
    Poet: Francis Ridley Havergal


    The memory of a kindly word for long gone by,
    The fragrance of a fading flower sent lovingly,
    The gleaming of a sudden smile or sudden tear.
    The warm pressure of the hand. the tone of cheer.

    The note that only bears a verse from God’s own Word: —
    Such tiny things we hardly count as ministry.
    The givers deeming they have shown scant sympathy;
    But when the heart is overwrought. oh, who can tell

    The power of such tiny things to make it well!

  32. One Can Make A Poem . . .
    Poet: Jaymac, 1990


    One can make a poem out of anything,
    Once when I was little (before I was big that is),
    (Well I really wasn't that little, - but what I
    mean is, before I really was as big as I am now)...
    Well anyway, before I was big
    I wrote a little poem about what it would be like
    To be big.
    As it turned out the little poem became a very big poem
    Just like this one!

    "Cheer up! Cheer up!" is his song.

  35. Every Year
    Poet: Albert G. Pike


    The truer life draws nigher
    Every year.
    And its morning star climbs higher
    Every year.
    Earth's hold on us grows slighter,
    And the heavy burdens lighter,
    And the dawn immortal brighter
    Every year.

    Over the livelong day.

  41. The Kingdom of Doubt
    John F Zurn, 2019


    Doubt is a worry
    that winds up the mind

    Doubt knows the what if
    But can’t solve the why

    Doubt feels the pressure
    To stand and be heard

    Doubt is the person
    Who won’t say a word

    Doubt feels uncertain
    In moments of peace

    Doubt finds the problems
    In all that he seeks

    Doubt causes anguish
    If life turns to gloom

    Doubt needs to give up
    Before fear consumes

    Doubt fills the prophet
    Who speaks without truth

    Doubt heeds the warnings
    Of those without proof

    Doubt is the kingdom
    Of what might have been

    Doubt can’t be open
    When love comes again
