Lovely Poem:

I dreamed that I prayed to Jehovah on high

Complained of my troubles and started to cry.

I said to Jehovah, I can't take it anymore!

Please bring it real soon, your great day of war!

I endure every day at the end of my rope,

I just do not see any way I can cope.

I face constant pressure each day without doubt.

With all of my problems there's just no way out.

He patiently listened as if on bended knee,

I griped and complained about what bothered me.

His loving concern as I emptied my head

Made me feel so secure in his love when He said:

I understand just what you're going through,

This time of the end makes it harder for you.

But you see, I too have been waiting so long,

And I must make sure my people are strong.

Since the very first couple, Adam and Eve,

My heart many times had been made to grieve.

Though I sent my son down to earth just to die,

Most people rejected what his life could buy.

I've been pushed aside by all those I love

For other false gods they have put high above.

They even say I don't exist or am dead,

That life just evolved from the monkey instead.

I surely don't want you to suffer or cry,

I'll give you my strength on which to rely.

You need to endure but please do not doubt,

If it gets too tough, I will provide the way out.

The new world is near so endure to the end,

For I am Jehovah and I am your friend.

The life that's ahead is worth oh so much more

You'll take such delight in what I have in store.

Just think what it will be like in paradise,

Why even the dead from the tombs will arise!

You'll feel so much better and have joy each day,

Your memories of troubles will soon pass away.

These promises given will surely come true,

And it won't be long before all becomes new.

So please be determined endure to the end,

For I am Jehovah your savior your friend.

When someone is right by, you know they're your friend,
Like a lioness protecting her cub.
You know it's not going to be the end,
Just like a strong, never-ending club.
When in desperate need for a giant smile,
Friendship may be the best route to go on,
Like a rider going on a mile.
And when someone that you love is gone,
Like a lonely duckling to his mother,
You have a buddy's shoulder to cry on,
And a friend to me is like a brother.
There at all times, just like a loving mom,
As long as you have someone there for you
Then you should always be there for them too.

God's Rainbow

The falling rain dissolves into mist
and the thunder begins to die,
as the sporadic lightning fades
an arch of color pours from the sky.

Rainbows appear after mighty storms
when things look their worst.
Just when the sky is darkest gray,
out of Heaven does a rainbow burst.

God first sent the rainbow to Noah
as a sign that His word is true.
The rainbow's eternal message
still speaks to me and you.

The rainbow is a sign of God's promise
that He will guide us through any storm,
That He will ease all our troubles,
No matter what their form.

When you feel battered by life's storms
and you are filled with doubt and dismay,
just remember God's rainbow is coming,
For it's blessing you have only to pray.

The Seasons Of Life
Through the different seasons
In life that we go through
God still walks there with us
Through good and bad times too

We don't need to stop
And ponder why we're here
We just need to trust in God
That He won't leave us there

It is but for a season
That we are in this place
We need not sit and question it
Just receive His loving grace

Don't look around at others
They can't give you what you need
Just turn your eyes heavenward
And put your trust in thee

Hard times that you're facing
The Lord will see you through
To bring you to a better place
That He has planned for you

We may only call on Him
When going through bad times
But when things are going well
He's seldom on our minds

For even in the good times
We still need to look to Him
So we don't become complacent
And let our love grow dim

So trust Him in the times ahead
Even when you do not know
That He is there beside you
For He does love you so.

A Wife’s Poem.

He didn’t like the curry
And he didn’t like my cake.
He said my biscuits were too hard…
Not like his mother used to make.

I didn’t prepare the coffee right
He didn’t like the stew,
I didn’t mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.

I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue.
Isn’t there anything I could do
To match his mother’s shoe ?

Then I smiled as I saw light
One thing I could definitely do
I turned around
And slapped him tight….
Like his mother used to do.

Roads are traveled 
Dirt or graveled
Twisting, turning
Direction yearning
Sometimes leading
Sometimes follow
Over hills and
Through the hollow
Sometimes barely
See the path
Check the compass
Do the math
Take a wrong turn
Re-adjust
To make it through
This is a must
But its your choice
Which road to take
Or you can sit
And no choice make
I choose the narrow 
Some choose the wide
And others.. they
Just want to hide 
But either way 
Just 'round the bend
All
Roads
End.  

 

What's at the end of YOUR road?

The blows were dealt
The sorrows felt
The past is far behind me

Yes still the scars
The dings and mars
Rise up and sometimes find me

A sleepless night
A dreamful fright
A memory forgotten

Will find me still
Will bind me still
The stench of it is rotten

So here i sit
By night phone lit
Recording words so sadly

But this I know
I did my best
Though others it hurt badly

But God forgives
And i try too
And pray for peace and healing

And one day hope
I will not wake
To thoughts that send me reeling.

Streaming tears

gone are fears

I know what to expect 

miss them so

but I well know

their mem'ry He'll protect

He'll keep it safe

He won't forget

their "faithful to the end"

and one day soon

I'll hear their voices

right around the bend 

they'll wake from sleep

and it will be

the best they ever had. 

They'll see my face

I made it too!!

won't  they be

ever glad :)

what could have been

what should have been

rarely is what is

 

what sight i had

what might i had

would always slowly fizz

 

i lost my head 

i made my bed

with this in mind i live

 

i lost it then

i gain it now

the power He can give

 

my life i give

my soul will live 

within His loving hands

 

renew my vow

from this day now

my future with Him lands

 

so if you read

please take my lead

and you will not regret

 

just take His hand

His purpose grand 

He will not you forget

 

It will be soon

morn night or noon

though day we do not know

 

but nothing lost

can pay the cost

if time can't make us grow

 

so keep in mind

and you will find

it's right around the bend

 

His promise grand

The promised land

and life without an end.

If we are to be pawns

in a game

of life

and death

I prefer 

to be

on the side

of truth

of good

of life.

If we are to be pawns

of angels

and demons

and gods

and desires,

I choose light

over dark

pure

over filth

i choose knowledge

over ignorance

kindness 

over apathy

I choose love

over hate.

If we are to be pawns

I give myself

to the One

who designed

and created

all things.

I chose my side

what's yours?

Strong love

forged over time

cracked 

and mended

bent

and unbended

flowing 

like water

stronger than

steel

bond

unimagined

this thing

we feel

time healing

errors

smoothing

edges

softening words

pulling down

hedges

together 

stronger

alone

no longer

you and I

one.

My brothers:
Not my blood, my brothers,
That, like my blood, are part of me;
So much so that even when apart from me,
Their love flows through my veins,
And it isn't that I'm loved more than my brother,
It is that the treasure of my brothers' love
Is astonishing;
Through storms and cells and pains,
Through fear, through doubt, through chains,
They love me, die for me, live for me;
And through the imperfections that crack a crystal's beauty
Is seen a gem impeccable within;
Which through misunderstandings and errors is pure:
It's the love they feel for me, for one another, for Jehovah;
That when we are reminded of our need,
We shed our judgements and our greed,
And we hold our hands out to our brothers,
And we pull together through the storm,
In an embrace that cannot break,
Held together by a love so warm
A love bound by triple chords

 

- Yours truly

*The Mirror*

(Edmund Burke 1729-1797,
Irish Philosopher)

I look in the mirror
And what do I see
A strange looking person
That cannot be me.

For, I am much younger
And not nearly so fat
As that face in the mirror
I am looking at.

Oh, where are the mirrors
That I used to know
Like the ones which were
Made thirty years ago

Now all things have changed
And I'm sure you'll agree
Mirrors are not as good
As they used to be.

So never be concerned,
If wrinkles/ extra flab appear
For one thing I've learned
Which is very clear,

Should your complexion
Be less than perfection,
It is really the mirror
That needs correction.

I too have a poem called "the mirror".

 

 open my eyes

and look in the mirror

and tell me what i see

who is that woman

standing there

looking back at me

i've felt her pain

her secrets kept

i've even cried her tears

but yet she hides

her heart from me

through all our common years

at times i'm close

to knowing her

i look into her eyes

the clearest blue i've

ever seen

but its a good disguise

she's not sure

bout who she is

or who she wants to be

as silent tears

roll down her face

she wipes them on my sleeve

and then she turns

to walk away

but turns and says to me

just be patient

you'll be fine .....and i know

so will she

Reflections of a Feisty Feline

He matches my sparring—blow for blow.

My every move—how can he know?

A courageous opponent I can’t stare down.

He’s always gone when I race around.

Unless he slows down some I fear

I’ll never catch that kitten in the mirror.

I'v done a couple; 

 

stainedversion_by_eccentricmatthew-dazhl 

 

 

Text version as it may be hard to read in places in the picture;

 

" I admire all your crafts, Jehovah
When I look to every appealing thing in sight
When I feel every appealing thing within

I look upon the physical beauty of a woman, and I praise the artistry of your hand
I feel emotional warmth and inner awe of her, I praise your gift of love
I touch her smooth skin, I praise your present of texture 

The grass, the soft pillow
The waterfalls, the streams
Taste and smell

I watch in joy as an animal humorously acts
I feel the bliss of enveloping it into my arms
 
My physical feelings, your textures 
My emotions, your relationships
My eyes, your crafts

Your ingeniousness, wisdom and love abound in every living breath, every active thought 
Without you no one pleasurable thing would ever be, every day we take you for granted

Even the living bliss of the wicked and blasphemous, they themselves could not experience without your works

The people blindly take comfort in denial of your existence, to free themselves of all responsibility
Irony abounds for the very sensations and temporary comforts they gain, all would not be felt if not for the initial works of your hands

They say it is freedom to escape and deny service to you 
But what selfishness churns inside them, they do not even consider

The founder and creator of bliss, emotion and enjoyment is you 
You created all of our joys, and remove all of our perils

What right is it of ours to deny you, in order to selfishly gain the very things created by you
It is the same to eat one's food, but to fire the cook in the foolish hope of gaining more of it

They deny you, only to sate their own comforts in which if not for you, they would not even know
They have arrogantly become thieves of the very works of your hand

I see and thank you for your works, Jehovah
Eternally I am your servant "

A beautiful poem, worth reading over and over, even if a repeat...

*THE WORLD IS MINE*
by *Joy Lovelet Crawford*

Today, upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman
and wished I were as beautiful.
When suddenly she rose to leave,
I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and used a crutch.
But as she passed, she passed a smile.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two legs; the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some candy.
The lad who sold it had such charm.
I talked with him, he seemed so glad.
If I were late, it'd do no harm.
And as I left, he said to me,
"I thank you, you've been so kind.
It's nice to talk with folks like you.
You see," he said, "I'm blind."
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two eyes; the world is mine.

Later while walking down the street,
I saw a child I knew.
He stood and watched the others play,
but he did not know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then I said,
Why don't you join them dear?"
He looked ahead without a word.
I forgot, he couldn't hear.
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two ears; the world is mine.

With feet to take me where I'd go,
With eyes to see the sunset's glow,
With ears to hear what I'd know,
Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.
I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine.


_If this poem makes you feel thankful, just forward it to your friends. After all, it's just a simple reminder that we have so much to be thankful for! Give the gift of love. It never comes back empty!_

I have been truly blessed with some very beautiful people in my life. And this comes as a token of thanks!

It is not real, but a reel
I'm adrift at sea where I see a sea
I know I do not see the sea, but this sea makes the sea look like a real sea

It's a surreal sea, so not a real sea
Not a real sea, so also not a real see 
But for a surreal sea, it sure does look surreal

 

 

Wordplay on anxiety, in how we pay more attention to negative fantasy as opposed to reality. We know these thoughts are not real but we get stuck in fearing them as if they were.
