Two Poems by Brian Mulligan
The power of Prayer... by Brian Mulligan
Who can we turn to when the load seems too heavy to bear?
Who else but Jesus. He understands, He cares.
"Come to me all who are burdened and I will give you rest."
our trials and tribulations are all part of the test
Have complete faith and don't worry about things that may never be.
Enjoy the beauty of nature, the sun the land, the sea.
The Father will look after us as He does the birds of the air
and everything is made possible with the power of prayer.
Autumn Leaves... by Brian Mulligan
Autumn leaves, red yellow and brown,
Gradually carpeting the ground.
They are falling now like snowflakes
Gently scattering in the breeze.
It's my favourite time of year
How I love those autumn trees
If God creates such beauty
For the human eye to see,
What wonders Heaven will reveal
For you and me.
Brian Mulligan passed away in Brisbane on 16th June 2007. He was a member of Vinnies when he and wife Veronica lived here and worked at the Vinnies shop.
ROSE AT YOUR FEET
Mystical Lady veiled in white
Pristine and calm like a fresh spring day
Stay in my life and protect me from storms
FAITH AND HOPE
Finding a reason is never easy
Accepting life`s mysteries, even harder.
We can only trust and hope that our
experiences are part of a master plan.
It`s sad that our gaining of faith gets
it`s biggest increase when we face death.
Perhaps this is, in itself, a reason.
Physical strength cannot compare with
that of faith and love.
So hold on to your trust and hope.
Above all, hold on to each other
For it is here you will find
Relief from suffering.
GOES ON IN GOD GOES ON HERE
and friends rise today above the pineapples
