Time to Honor

A time to honor,
Veterans tried and true.
For all who fought,
for the red, white, and blue.

A time to remember,
a time to care.
A time to thank God,
we came home from there.

War just goes on and on,
I wonder if it will ever cease.
And all our soldiers be safe and sound,
and the world would be at peace.

But peace can only come for man,
when we let God be in control.
And blend our heart and mind on him,
and His angels on patrol.

God, the only true and lasting One,
Who is never wrong in anything.
He is perfection, love and peace,
after all, He is God and King.

Someone to Love

Do you have a friend,
who is always there?
To pick you up,
and show their care?

Each and every day,
throughout the coming year.
To never leave or forsake,
but hold you ever near.

Sticking closer than a brother,
to hold your hand in all you do.
To pick you up when feeling down,
to hold your heart when you feel blue.

To keep your mind in times,
when it seems ready to burst.
To give you living water,
in the times of your thirst.

I only know one,
who could fulfill this task.
And it doesn’t take much,
all you need to do is ask.

He knows all about you,
from beginning to end.
He is your Creator,
even your best friend.

Call His name and He will answer,
He’ll make crooked places straight.
He’ll change your life,
and make it great.

Just call His name, it’s Jesus,
and He wants to be your friend.
He’ll guide you along life’s path,
holding you from beginning to end.

By my grandson, Eric Greco.


It was an average day,
also somewhat fun.
Anticipation was everywhere,
as the World Trade Center was almost done.

People went to work,
kids went out to play.
But soon enough, in time,
there would be nothing to say.

Planes were flying undetected,
known location was none.
Eventually we all would know,
because people began to run.

A plane had hit the North Tower,
so now a plane was found.
But people knew it was no accident,
another plane was inbound.

BOOM!!! went the second plane,
both hit within the hour.
Fear was widely spread around,
it wasn’t just the towers.

An explosion at a government base,
a portion of it was gone.
The government went to DEFCON 3,
the plane had hit the Pentagon.

The South Tower was the second hit,
the North Tower was the first.
What happened next was unbelievable,
it was just the worst.

The South Tower had given way,
could not support the weight.
It collapsed and killed so many people,
they had no escape.

Next was the North to collapse that day,
could not deny it’s fate.
More people died and could not stop,
the group called Al-Qaeda’s hate.

One more plane was set to hit,
the location was unclear.
The plane never hit and here is why,
these people saved many tears.

The passengers knew what was going on,
react was what they would do.
Calling their families and saying good-bye,
these heroes saved me and you.

All of the heroes stormed the cockpit,
hijackers were revealed.
Many tried but could not control,
the plane crashed in a field.

So this I tell you, again and again,
don’t cry and do not let,
the sadness overtake your body,
please NEVER FORGET.

Who is Grandma?

God leads her wisdom,
impressed by God’s heavenly kingdom.
On the path of righteousness,
she offers you nothing less.

Reliable to the very end,
she is our greatest friend.
Always available for every need,
she prays and follows God’s lead.

Attentive to God’s still small voice,
wants always your best choice.
She listens with a caring ear,
always trying to erase all fear.

Negative only when needed,
keeping you from becoming wearied.
Support in everything you do,
she loves and cares so much for you.

Diligent, rigorous, in all her tasks,
passing on from God what she asks.
She is careful about how valuable you are,
her grandchildren are set at a higher bar.

Merciful because God is mercy and love,
and all good things come from above.
She cares for each and every one,
she calls all His daughter and son.

Adorable as grandma with child by her side,
she’s proud in Whom they all abide.
So give to grandma all that’s due,
for all the prayers she offered for you.

Memorial Day: The Last Monday in May

A day of tribute, honor, & prayer,
to all those who left something there.
Not only those who gave it all,
but also those who saw one fall.

Those who were there and lost a friend,
have a memory that will never end.
Not only today, but everyday,
they take time to stop and pray.

War is tragedy that you can’t explain,
nobody knows who is to blame.
The price we pay is way too high,
especially when we say good-bye.

Nobody in war ever dies alone,
on the field, or here at home.
The military knocks at your door,
“I’m sorry, another casualty of war.”

What will ever pay the cost,
for the family that has suffered loss.
When all is given for this nation,
will a medal or citation.

The scars of war are not on the skin,
instead, the heart buried deep within.
Nothing anyone wants to talks about,
never able to pour it out.

We’re never the same as before,
for war cripples our very core.
We may come back in on piece,
but our memories will never cease.

So, for this Monday in the month of May,
take time to reflect and time to pray.
Remembering those who answered freedom’s call,
all gave some, some gave all.

Yet, in the midst of all this despair,
when the world is so unfair.
I find hope for life in only One,
and that is God’s very Son.

He’s the One who cares for me,
without Him, I wouldn’t be.
There’s nothing greater than His Grace,
He’s always there, whatever I face.

So trust Him in all you do,
He will always see you through.
He’ll never allow what you can’t bear,
He’ll shelter you in His Loving Care.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day,
straight from my heart.
May the days be many,
we will never part.

I could never thank you,
for all that you do.
But I can pray that God,
will truly bless you.

Make your days bright,
and full with the Son.
As you walk in the fullness,
of the Holy One.

May He always hold you,
so close and so dear.
That you feel His safety,
and never fear.

My love for you,
will never compare.
To the love of Jesus,
that His love for you, I share.

So happy Valentine’s Day,
straight from my heart.
May the days be many,
we will never part.

God is Able

Each and every year,
has hopes and aspirations.
And a wish for peace,
among all the nations.

Newly elected officials,
give promises of change.
But working on their own,
success would be very strange.

But we cannot put our trust in man,
they all work for their own plan.
They look for glory of the world,
but not through God and His vision for man.

The world will never see eye to eye,
and establish a lasting peace.
‘Cause man is a flaw, in himself,
and that will never cease.

But in this country, there is a chance,
for life to be a little different.
We have a chance to rediscover our roots,
let life settle down and be less turbulent.

With God, all things are possible,
life can take a turn for the better.
If we put our trust in God,
and support a Christian leader.

So you need to decide,
about how you want life to be.
You can remain in bondage,
or you can truly live free.

God is waiting,
the choice is yours to make.
His promises are “yea” and “amen,”
choose right, and we’ll enter His gate.
