Run to Family

Run to Family

When we stare,
Men to care,
Enemies are nowhere,
This is our sweet home
Where disappointments are rare,
Faces welcome with cheer,
Throughout the year love bombs explode here,
Without any fear, we run to be inside this sphere,
The walls of the house utter words of inspiration,
All feel at ease with every breath of respiration,
With talk, play, freedom and wisdom,
Hearts rule, minds move in our family kingdom,
A place for everyday stories, written in language of emotions
The challenges of life dissolve with definite solutions
A soothing family melody is the rescue remedy,
To cure all the unwanted worldly misery,
We look forward to create moments, not years,
Run to synthesize smiles, not tears,

Never wished for heaven to come down,
Instead at home created one of our own,
Family is a precious gift for life long,
A pleasure nest where we all finally belong.

    Beautiful poem also following divine message on how communists in the west trying to destroy the family to John Leary dated Friday, December 30, 2016: (Feast of the Holy Family) ...... Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing the greatest example to follow in My Holy Family of Me, My Blessed Mother, and St. Joseph. Your society today is destroying the family which should be the basic unit for bringing up children in love. You have listened and tolerated the devil’s call for same sex marriage, divorce, and couples living together in fornication without marriage. You know it is a mortal sin against the Sixth Commandment to commit homosexual acts and for having sex outside of true marriage in fornication. Yet by society tolerating these sinful actions with no shame, you are accepting the tearing down of marriage as an institution. If you wanted to destroy America in its love of God, love of country, and love of family, like the communists planned, you would destroy the family. The communists have planned to use sex exploitation in pornography, hard rock music, liberal teaching without God in the colleges, and drugs to destroy your country. You are seeing it happen before your eyes. Your country needs a spiritual renewal to put Me back into your society by coming to church every week, repenting of your sins, and praying more. You need to see sin and call it for what it is, without any ‘political correctness’. By restoring your morals, you can save America. If you do not change, America will leave the face of the earth as you know it.” Ref:
