There is a God, I know it’s true

I’d really like to share with you

However that is not my choice

Each must decide with their own voice.

I cannot but supply the facts

Depends on you how one reacts

There is a book, you know which one

It’s older than the Sugar Plum.

This book was writ on parchment roll

And wound up in clay jars of scroll

Hidden away two thousand years

Written by scores of ancient seers.

It is the world’s most famous book

Perhaps one day, you’ll take a look !

 

SPREAD HIS WORDS ( 2017 ) 2017/07/10

I’ve lately come to understand

That memories are ever grand

But only last a lifetime long

And to our history belong.

While  words we place upon a page

Remain forever throughout age

With many lasting years and years

To heal our wounds, allay our fears.

We would not know about God’s word

If all those crowds had only heard

And scribes had then not set it down

For men to spread His words around !

There is this book we all know well

That has so many tales to tell

It’s been around thousands of years

Chock full of joy, promises, tears

They’ve not forgot one single thing

Bout love and lust of prince or king.

It speaks of fear, hate, jealousy

And those who can’t or will not see

Of wisemen, prophets, soldiers too

With visions of our dreams come truth

Life history since time’s begun

There’s nothing new under our sun !

 

OUT OF PAIN ( 2016 ) 2016/06/30

Now Moses was a Hebrew lad

So long ago in Egypt land

Twas quite a temper that he had

And such great strength within his hand.

 

One day a soldier in the field

Assigned to watch the slaves at work

Did beat a slave and would not yield

Because he thought the man did shirk.

 

When Moses struck him to the ground

This was a crime, the soldier died

In fear he ran not to be found

To Sinai, forty years did hide.

 

Then through the Burning Bush of Flame

That’s how God called him home again

He donned the role of Bible fame

To lead his people out of pain !

In God’s Eden one peaceful morn

Was the first time a lie was born

As Satan turned from good to bad

And ruined the paradise they had !

Sly Satan spoke strong words to Eve,

His purpose meaning to deceive

He answered her as she asked why

“I tell you that you will not die !”

“Come eat of this forbidden tree

That opens eyes so you can see

The difference of wrong and right

And what is wise here in God’s sight.”

Oh foolish child you could not know

How perils of your act would grow !

EXCUSE ME but have you been searching for the rainbow ?  Did you know that Methuselah of Genesis fame lived 969 years and was the grandfather of Noah, known for his construction of the Ark ?  Wow, a mouthful !  God introduced the rainbow as a reminder to all that He would honor His vow to never again flood the world in perpetuity !  I learned that when I was but a small girl and since then each rainbow I have seen reinforces my belief.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our leaders could instill in us that kind of trust ?  Oh how I wish !  Remember Daniel 2 and his feet of clay, well welcome to reality !  Clay just reminds me of a lot of mud !  How about you ?

The poet paints a picture but not with paint and brush

His words create the image there’s music in his touch

Each has his own conception there are no two the same

Tis an old profession and Shakepeare’s favorite game.

Some think the words are foolish and pale in empty air

Please remember David and his Psalms we all still share

His words were so profound they will live forever here

They brought us close to God they will never disappear !
