All about my family !

“The Family Tree And Me”

My mom, Virginia Catherine Waltrip such a beauty to see
Then she met James Edward Hicks a wedding was to be
I believe I can name all of the children so okay let’s try
This is the way the kids came along, you know I would not lie

First there was Marilyn Virginia named after our mom
She was a twin and the most beautiful girl at the prom
She’s such a petite little thing but don’t you mess with her
She’s tough on the outside you won’t find one any sweet-er

Then there was Carolyn Edwina yes the other twin
Tickle under her chin to get her to give a big ole grin
She was named after James Edward, her dear ole dad
She died at seventeen that made all us so very sad

Then along came Wathena Jeannine oh what a name
Big brown eyes and beauty is her claim to fame
She has many talents and even very smart too
Jeannie, you always make me so very proud of you

Next was James Edward Jr, they finally got their boy
He was so handsome and cool oh what a great joy
He likes to play golf almost any day of the week
And oh that man’s a looker what a great physique

Then along came another girl her name Patricia Ann
She is very strong willed, I think I can, I think I can
She is such a happy girl and a beauty to behold
She is also such a kid, she will never never grow old

Charles Wayne was next in line such a ladies man
Bring on the girls come on try to tame him if you can
He has the cutest little nose and mesmerizing smile
Be careful girls, give him an inch and he will take a mile

Then the next sensation his name was Wesley Earl
He said there’s not a female alive who wouldn’t be his girl
He was so cool and so groovy with those long sideburns
He’s Elvis ! He dances, He wiggles and he turns

And then of course there is me my name is Trina Kay
How do you talk about yourself, I don’t know what to say
I always thought myself to be a chubby little nerd
But now I think I’m pretty cool but tell me what you’ve heard

Time again to have some twins, the boy was Richard Lee
He always took the blame for things he said it must be me
He was so cute his hair so thick, I think I hate his guts
He always loved cats and dogs and sometimes even mutts

The other twin was a little girl beautiful Rhonda Lou
She was the nicer of the twins, Mother vowed it true
She left this world to go to heaven when she was only five
I know she lives with Jesus and her soul is still alive

And the last of this group her name is Cheryle Lynn
She’s such an individual she could have never been a twin
She’s the baby of this family but does not like it said
She’s the youngest of the beauties now her ego has been fed

Now it is up to us the children to carry on the family tree
I have done my part a little girl and that’s enough for me
A beautiful little blonde her name is Kimberly Gean
I love her so much even though sometimes she can be mean

So all you nieces and nephews continue on this family tree
Bring all those beautiful babies around to visit with me
We may not be the perfect family but boy I sure am proud
That when we all get together we really are a crowd

Dedicated to the memory of James and Catherine Hicks

Anyone else have a prayer box ? Share your comments

  • Posted on July 6, 2016 at 2:42 PM

“THE PRAYER BOX”

I have a prayer box it sounds like it would be square right?
Well my prayer box is round with a lid that fits tight
I put all my secret prayer requests in that one little box
Praying over it daily sometimes in my jammies and socks

I write them down and fold up the paper all nice and neat
Stick them in the box no one sees I am very discreet
The box holds my special requests for myself and others
For my friends and family, all my sisters and brothers

When I put them in the box I know that God sees
He hears my prayers and answers for these special needs
Some days I put more in the box than I can take out
But each one will be answered in time I have no doubt

On the days that I remove a paper with a request written down
I am so happy and cry tears of joy and may even jump around
For to be removed from the box means the answer has come
Not always the way I wanted it but God’s will has been done

For we see things from the human and sometimes selfish side
Where we must put our faith in God’s wisdom and in Him abide
He will answer all prayers of a righteous man prayed in faith
Give your burdens to Him and just sit back and patiently wait

For today I just removed a special request from that old box
I put that paper in the trash and weighted it down with rocks
It will not be coming back out to bother me any more
For God took care of another one I am keeping the score

I love my special round box all decorated on the outside you see
No one knows what is in that special box but my Lord and me
OOPS I have let the secret out for anyone who may visit my website
But the secret requests are still secret so it will be alright !

By Trina K Kiser

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped; therefore

my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.

Happy July 4th Let’s let some fireworks !

  • Posted on July 4, 2016 at 9:09 AM

“FIREWORKS DAY”

Here it is time again to celebrate our country
We will be looking for just the right spot to see
The beautiful fireworks spectacular in the sky
I am always in awe of the different colors oh my

We will feed on the foods known for this date
Then we can’t believe how much we just ate
So we will run it all off playing baseball you know
Winding down the picnics in time for the show

Together with our loved ones oh what a day
Getting together forgetting our differences anyway
Remembering our favorite fourths of the past
Hoping the fireworks will start in the dark sky at last

During the big show we watch without making a sound
Except for some oooooohs and aaaaaawhs will abound
I know I am amazed with each and every sight
The colors exploding into the sky of the night

The heartfelt thanks I feel is not just for the lights
But for the soldiers fighting today for our rights
To live in a free democracy and do what we please
So let’s pray for the soldiers and all of their needs

There will be so many of our own that will not get to see
The beautiful fireworks show that is so soon to be
For they have died for our freedom to do this tonight
How do we thank them for giving us this right

If you know a family whose loved ones that have fought
Please give that family a big hug for me and you ought
To cry with them and help them through their big loss
For they are the ones who have paid this big cost

So as we watch the big show on this fourth of July
And we see all the colors in this big beautiful night sky
Don’t forget the reason we can do all of this today
Thank God for all the soldiers tonight when we pray !

By Trina K Kiser

Memorial Day is fast approaching, please remember your loved ones and all military, and God we thank you for each and every one !

“For Just A Moment ”

A moment is only sixty seconds in length on any given day
But today on Memorial Day it is bigger than that I say
At 3:00 pm the nation stopped whatever they were doing
YES they stopped whatever it was they were ensuing

In just one moment millions of minds came together
Not to think of the economy or even the rainy weather
It was so awesome I cannot explain how it made me feel
The tears in every American’s eye that were so very real

The soldiers of every branch of our military that has died
Fighting the war on freedom for this nation that we abide
I cannot imagine what it’s like to get that knock on your door
These families that have lost their loved ones and what for

Yet we all stood together to embrace each and every one
To thank each soldier and family for what they have done
My family has had military members but all have come home
Home to their families when the wars they were in were done

There are so many that were not afforded that moment in time
To hug their family member at the end of the long military line
They lost their loved ones so mine could have the freedom to live
They lost the best soldiers that have given all they had to give

I say let’s all pray for them each and every day of the year
Give them all a big ole hug let’s get our hearts and minds in gear
These families need us every day to carry on with their lives
The lost sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, husbands and wives

I am proud to live in a nation that will never forget these brave ones
Each and every war we have lost soldiers but wars we have won
May every day that we wake up with the freedom to do as we please
Let us pray to our Lord and thank him for them as we go to our knees

Thank You EACH and EVERY SOLDIER for my freedom !

How do you expect to spend your Retirement ?

  • Posted on September 1, 2014 at 2:23 PM

” Are You Ready For Retirement “

You think you are ready for retirement from this life you say,
Well let’s look at all the things that need to be done along the way.
Let’s see have you saved enough money to make it through in this life,
Without the steady income from your job that is so filled with strife.

Have you got all those bills paid off that you have owed for so long,
The credit cards, the car loans and of course that home that you own.
What about the insurance that you will need to carry to get by everyday,
That will go on in life even with the help of medicare but, oh by the way.

You know that retirement means going from one stage of life to the next,
It is a very big step and takes a lot of planning along the way at best.
What will you do if catastrophe occurs and you do not know what to do,
Who will take care of all your things, your spouse and of course of you.

Now, wouldn’t it be nice if all those things were taken care of all done,
You would have a mansion on streets of gold with not a care. no not one.
You would have eternity to be retired and spend all the day praising GOD,
A life of forever never ending and living on a brand new earth how odd.

There would be no ill health to worry about no not one ache or pain,
No worry of where will the next meal come from or no financial gain.
Or who will take care of the family when you are long gone from here,
For you will be living with your Heavenly Father in heaven so dear.

No you will not need a dime in your pocket to get by up in that place,
All you will need is the Good Lord’s beautiful, loving and saving grace.
For He has made a way to have the ultimate retirement for all men,
Yes, it is as simple as believing in Jesus that He came to die for our sin.

Will you please join Jesus in the ultimate retirement dream home above,
It is so easy and will not cost you a dime all you need is Jesus’s love.
It is simple just believe in your heart, confess with your mouth of your sin
And believe that Jesus died for our sin on that old cross and arose again.

Yes He did on the third day He arose again just as God had said he would,
Oh My it is so hard to believe that Jesus has loved us so much and so good.
Won’t cost you a thing, Jesus paid the ultimate price that we could not pay.
Please come reserve your beautiful eternal home with Jesus in heaven today !

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

JOHN 3:16

“It’s Twelve O’Clock, Do you Know Where Your Saviour Is ?”

It’s one o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He at Bethelehem is that where He lives
Mary and Joseph were to comfort Him at birth
They came to town to pay taxes on their net worth

It’s two o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He at the temple is that where He lives
He began preaching and teaching at twelve years old
He knew the truth of God’s kingdom must be told

It’s three o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He down at the river is that where He lives
He gathered up disciples from there on the banks
To be fishers of men including men of all ranks

It’s four o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He there on the mountain is that where He lives
He taught all the multitude the way to live good
What they should not do and then what they should

It’s five o’clock, do you know where your Savior is?
Is He out on the open seas is that where He lives
His disciples were afraid as He lay down to sleep
He calmed the storm for their safety to keep

It’s six o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He in the small towns is that where He lives
Performing miracles so that all man would believe
He came from heaven is that so hard to perceive
(con’t)

(con’t )
It’s seven o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He at Jerusalem is that where He lives
He rode into town knowing what’s to take place
Teaching His disciples to live by God’s grace

It’s eight o’clock, do you kow where your Saviour is?
Is He at Gethsemane is that where He lives
He prayed to His Father take this cup from me
But if it is your will then it surely must be

It’s nine o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He at Calvary is that where He lives
He died on that cross so that we may be spared
I wonder if there was anyone there who cared

It’s ten o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He there in the tomb is that where He lives
After three days He rose again just as He said
Yes they could not keep Him there He is not dead

It’s eleven o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He in the churches is that where He lives
He still saves souls through us and our preachers
He still guides the children through Sunday School teachers

It’s twelve o’clock, do you know where your Saviour is?
Is He in Heaven with God is that where He lives
He’s at His right hand and was there from the start
But most of all I know my Saviour lives in my heart !

“The Artist”

With a loving hand He paints the colors of the Spring
The rain will fall and the beautiful flowers it will bring
The sky He will paint a very pale shade of blue
And from the highest mountain, Oh what a view

The colors will come out, the Easter Lillies too
The roses of pink, red and even violets blue
Carnations of every color, even peach if you please
Then He’ll paint the redbird singing in the breeze

He will paint the Summer with the trees of forest green
The most beautiful lakes of cystal blue I’ve ever seen
Then He’ll paint the most colorful butterflies on earth
No telling what this artist’s talent could be worth

Maybe He will even paint children playing in the field
The farmer’s market where the yellow corn will be revealed
Then He’ll paint the oranges hanging high upon the tree
What a breathtaking scene for all of us to see

Then will come the Fall with His Autumn colors bright
Orange, brown, gold and burgundy, O what a sight
With His brush He’ll draw the clear dew upon the pumpkin
That’s the time I most enjoy being just a country bumpkin

Then He’ll probably draw a nice cool breeze into the air
From His palette maybe a coat of many colors we could wear
He’ll paint a harvest sunset stretching far across the range
A warning to all of us that the weather soon will change

I wish the Autumn would last forever if it only could
But wait, I see Him painting men gathering in firewood
Now He is painting quilts for to place upon the bed
He’s painting for the rough Winter that lies just ahead

Next He paints a Winter scene full of sparkling snow
Icicles hanging from the house to give the night a glow
The Creator of all this art is such a mystery to me
If you know, won’t you tell me, who could this artist be?

by Trina K Kiser
Thank You GOD for the beauty of your creation!!!

Easter is coming up. May God Bless All Of You at Easter and may we always remember why we have Easter!

“WHERE WERE YOU WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS”

Where were you when JESUS died on that old rugged cross?
Were you there watching Him suffer and be tortured at death?
Were you even in existence back then at all or do you know?
Were you there when he was paying the price for your soul?

Where were you when JESUS died on that old rugged cross?
Were you there yelling for them to crucify HIM! Crucify HIM!
Were you there to back HIM up as the one and only CHRIST?
Were you there involved in the mob without thinking twice?

Where were you when JESUS died on that old rugged cross?
Were you there when he saved the criminal beside him from hell?
Were you there to give HIM a drink when he needed it most?
Were you there when He said it is finished and gave up the ghost?

Where were you when JESUS died on that old rugged cross?
Were you there as part of the crowd who will not mourn HIS loss?
Were you there to see the disciple that betrayed my LORD there?
Were you there as the soldier pierced HIS side with the spear?

Where were you when JESUS died on that old rugged cross?
Were you there with his Mother Mary as she buried her Son?
Were you there as they parted and cast lots for his clothes?
Were you there as he suffered the PAIN like none of us knows?

Where were you when JESUS died on that old rugged cross?
Were you there as HE was raised from the dead just as GOD said?
Were you there as HE appeared to the disciples to show that HE Lives?
Were you there as HE was RISEN up into heaven, eternal life to give?

Where were you when JESUS died on that old rugged cross?
We were all right there with JESUS, and it should break all our hearts
HE was thinking of every single one of us, YES we were ALL on HIS mind
As He died there on that old rugged cross, to save all of mankind !!

by Trina K Kiser

THANK YOU DEAR JESUS FOR ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH YOUR LIFE, DEATH AND RESURRECTION !!

These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee. As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth. I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
John 17:1-4

Happy New Year 2014!! Would like to share a recipe with you, enjoy it !!

  • Posted on January 2, 2014 at 1:59 PM

 

“The Recipe”

A cup full of innocence when He was born as a babe
He came from heaven to earth so people could be saved.

A cup and a half full of learning as a child in the temple
He was not rich, He was born into a family plain and simple.

A heaping tablespoon of teaching the disciples what to do
So they in turn could teach the same principles to me and you.

A pound or so of miracles so that the unbelievers would believe
And would then be accepting of Jesus and salvation receive.

A ton of humility, He lived as a common man and never was proud
He never bragged on Himself or would stand out in a crowd.

A bag full of understanding since He came to earth as a man
He lived among us just as GOD had made it up in HIS plan.

A truckload full of protection from that ole satan’s evil hand
With Him on our side we can have victory for sure we can.

A heart full of love for all man, He had died on the cross to save
Then rose again on the third day from that old musty grave.

Enough blood shed to cover the earth and wash us all clean
When satan tries to harm us He will be there to intervene.

A golden crown full of royalty for HE is the King of Kings
HE deserves the golden crown and the adoration that it brings!

Jesus adds the Light which is the most important part I see
A river of living water flowing from Jesus’ heart to you and me

Put all these ingredients together, mix well and then take it all in
You will have JESUS CHRIST, the ONE who paid for our sin!

JESUS IS THE RECIPE FOR SALVATION !
