I awoke this morning with these words in my head, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish” ( John 3:16 ).  Wow !  For those of us who are parents this is some wake-up call, but for those who have only one child,  what a sacrifice !  This unseen being or power that masquerades in many forms to many peoples for many centuries must really like us, you think ?  Frankly, I can’t begin to imagine that kind of love, I’m not even capable of it.  How about you ?  Is that why love has such power, not to be confused with lust ?  The Bible is full of stories of love, when did we lose the true meaning ?  Perhaps we should consider the story of David and Bathsheba, now that was lust !  Just look at the results, the baby died and the wisest man who lived, his brother Solomon, left    us reams of prayers and wisdom and a civilization that perished.  But love, like that of Jacob and Rachel endures forever.  I think that is God’s love for us and passes all understanding !  I’m sure His promises are eternal and I’m willing to spin the wheel with God, no matter where the chips may fall.  Will you join me ?  It is truly the lack of love destroying this old world today and it’s time we got our act together !               Sincerely,                                        Claire B.


CONSTANT ( 2014 )

I thought one day I would be old

I knew sometimes I’d feel the cold

I never thought I’d be alone

With no one here to call my own

Though all of this is now the fact

I have survived with faith intact.

The constant loss I could not bear

Would be the absence of all prayer

But if I cannot speak a word

I have no doubt my thoughts are heard !
