A CORDUROY SKIRT & JACKET

A  CORDUROY SKIRT AND JACKET

(sing to THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

A corduroy jacket

And skirt are going to be

The next sewing project

My love does, you see…

She’ll make it from material

That cost a lot of “dough”

But I do like the pattern

And will love her in it so!

Oh, the patterned blue fabric,

A fancy corduroy…

Is worth the glow in her eyes

When I paid for this joy;

She’ll have her new sewing machine

Which I guess I’ll set up too,

And help her with the making of

Until the set is through!

We can’t afford to hire help

Except for a tip or two,

This pattern cost a lot to get

But she’s not feeling blue…

Except to say my illness brought

Her project to a halt,

Just taking over for her love

She did not find me fault.

My BLUE SAPPHIRE OF JOHNSBURG (see Archives!)

Is the best one for me,

She takes up the slack I bore

And responsibility…

The least I can do for my love

Is allow a corduroy bolt,

To help her smile a good long while

And scamper like a colt!  😀

BLESSED AND ADORED…by Carl Gooch

BLESSED AND ADORED…by Carl Gooch

Winter’s chill has come and past,

Memories linger of its frigid blast…

Strong winds howled with bitter groans

That left sore muscles and aching bones.

In my struggles He helps me grow,

That every part of me will know…

Whether in harsh days or in fair

I call on my Lord and He is there!

A gentle breeze flows on a warm day,

Soft cottony clouds float past my way…

I am truly blessed and adored

As I rest in the arms of my Lord.

He is there in every season,

Grants me life and gives it reason…

Christ is the source of strength and love:

He is my Savior, the Way to heaven above!
