Reminiscing through the old photo book
Almost hard to believe how people change
Isn't it quite amazing how we all looked?
Most of us do look a bit strange
Grandma looked so young then
I was almost three
Mama was gorgeous you'd call her a ten
And Grandma meant everything to me
Cousins, Aunts and Uncles in faded pictures
Back in time of stricter manners, and morals
Of black and white appeared to be caricatures
With similar ideals and goals
Older colored pictures have yellowed
Colored photos were a new invention
Although the people have mellowed
A marvel that brought so much attention
Copies of birth announcements now aged
Time passes so swiftly
Many now grown and engaged
Others are in college currently
Yet others have enlisted to serve and protect
We pray our Lord guides us in these difficult times
These years are so different as we reflect
So many memories as we gaze at the photos in frames
We cherish our age and all that we faced
We thank you Lord for all of life's treasures
Times are most precious and we embrace
Happy we took time to enjoy simple pleasures.
Joyce Ann Geyer
To you, Oh Lord, I lift up my soul.
I trust in you, my God.
