Death comes to all
 Separation of our spirit
 From the flesh
 Instituted by our fall
 From His grace
 Turned out of a 
 And away from 
 His face
 However, God
 Still desires
 Into His kingdom
 To come
 His planet
 Even now awash in 
 His love
 But there will 
 Be a day
 Christ did say
 When He returns
 To light the way
 To His 
 New Earth
 A separation
 Will occur
 The Sheep,
 Those he will keep
 In His love 
 But with a Holy shout
 The goats
 Will be thrown out
 Into the darkness
 Where satan awaits
 Between the fiery gates
 It is your choice
 To either praise, worship
 & rejoice
 In your
 Creator/Father/ God
 Do it now,
 While among the living
 do the giving,
 do not be 
 caught unaware
 do not miss
 your share
 of His Paradise
 Choose to go the
 Right way
 In this you do have
 The final say
 Do not reject
 Your God
 He never rejects
 Any feeble start
 Do not harden
 Your heart

 Divisions, divisions
 In a Sea
 Of Faces
 Never meant
 To be
 We were
 Meant to be
 All one
 The One,
 Father, Spirit
 Holy Son
 Joined together
 In the perfect dance
 In one glance
 You can see
 This world’s
 Ultimate Unity!
 So, it does 
 Not make sense
 For God’s family
 To be so divided
 For this there 
 Stands no defense
 A church, family
 divided only
 Hurts itself
 Taking away
 Not adding
 Leaving all
 of the
 Love, Joy
 the Peace
 Steals the 
 Meant for us
 So, Holy Family
 God’s one true
 Tear down the 
 Those horrible
 Never meant 
 To be
 And we will 
 See. . . 

Ephesians 4:3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.

1 Corinthians 1:12-13 What I mean is this: One of you says, I follow Paul; another, I follow Apollos; another, I follow Cephas; still another, I follow Christ. Is Christ divided?

 I feel like
 I feel like
 A leaf,
 A snowflake
 Life goes by so fast
 Like peering in a looking glass
 Then you step away
 What was it that you, God,
 Had in mind
 When you first thought of
 Was it to rhyme a line
 So they perhaps might
 Your Face?
 Better, clearer,
 Clearer, clearer
 So they might
 Draw nearer,
 Nearer, nearer
 To You?
 Never will I know
 All answers
 This side of the grave
 Questions will there
 Always be
 As on I in frailness go.

My Existence

 My heart beats
 My lungs breathe
 I can laugh,
 Savor the day
 I exist
 My thoughts are 
 My own
 In my head 
 They have found
 A home
 Within to rest
 Put me to the test
 Will I or won’t I
 Do this or that
 I can hear these,
 My thoughts
 For you see
 This is the real
 You and me
 A living breathing
 Spirit, soul
 Only temporarily,
 For now
 Attached to this
 mortal shell
 Given a chance
 to grow
 Get to know
 The One who runs
 The universe
 And beyond,
 With His Son
 For one day He 
 Has promised 
 He will come
 This living,
 breathing Son
 Shining in all His splendor
 This wonderful Giver
 Of our Life
 This gift of
 Our Existence!

My Debts

 My Debts
 Up to my eyeballs in debt
 I sigh I moan
 I truly, deeply regret
 What I have done
 To myself
 No one else to blame
 Oh, the embarrassing shame!
 Oh, what I cannot claim
 Of wisdom
 Loud commercials
 Made it seem so real
 Oh, their endless appeal
 So, I got sucked in 
 By the alluring din
 Of a greedy world
 So now I am an endless slave
 This I can mostly certainly say
 Onward I go 
 Trying to show
 A new confidence
 I slug away
 Each morning, new day
 At the mountainous debt
 Trying to correct
 This wreck
 I’ve made of my life
 I know it will end
 And I will never, ever,
 Ever again spend
 Myself into this death march
 toward another fresh & open 
 financial grave 

Probably not such a good poem for this time of year, right before the biggest gift giving holiday, but still timely I hope. Remember it’s only one day out of the year. Remember God loves you and wants only the best for you and your family. Have a blessed and peace filled day!
