Night Falls on My Old Kentucky Home

Night falls on my old Kentucky home. 
Shades of pink and purple stretch across the horizon,
the sound of katydid and crickets are interupted
by honking geese. 
Children are laughing in the nearby churchyard,
 reminding me that life goes on. 
Somewhere in the world tonight, people are fighting,
some are cheating, some lying;
but, here in our backyard, all is well,
and God is still the God of our lives. 
We talk about the sky, being the same sky over all the earth,
the sun, the moon, and stars, as well. 
We all breathe the same air.  We are all in this together. 
So why do some want to hurt one another? 
It won't always be like that. 
One day peace, love, and Holiness will reign. 
Until then we pray for God's Blessings upon you.  


  1. Thanks Trisha for your concern, thoughts and prayers.
    We have not had any problems in our part of London, they are in the areas where there is mass immigration but glad of your prayers for my country at this time.

    We were able to see the smoke rising over some of North London from our back bedroom though.
    Blessings to you.

  2. That was so true & beautiful. Did you write that? Thank you for sharing. ((hugs))
