A Real Change

When I moved from Massachusetts to good old Iowa

The acclimatization was a breeze

Had I come from warmer homelands like Texas or LA

I’m sure I’d hear more chatter in my teethe

Climate changes can be hard when moving from your home

The outer forces can be hard to make 

But when our inner climate needs to have an overhaul

There’s a person who will all your troubles take

Come to Jesus for a real change when your life is running wild

Confess to Him how your life’s out of place

Trust Him and His word then take the time to hear His voice

He will give to you amazing grace

A Real Change

Fall of Colors

Forty short years ago I moved to Iowa
Flatland met me with corn grown tall
Storms of summer cold of winter
Harvest time takes over fall

One thing I missed from dear old Mass
Was the woodlands deep and wide
In fall the colors were so bright
That’s when homesick still abides

I came out here to seek the Lord
Best decision I ever made
I could not see the forest for the trees
When it came to life back then

Now life is so much clearer
My purpose is renewed
If you need something more from life
Just look to Christ our Lord
