Jesus or Disney World? Disney World That land of endless delights, Thrills and joy! Where nothing bad Or sad ever happens Your next adventure awaits Between its hallowed gates But wait Don’t look too closely You’ll see its flaws Don’t take time to stop or pause They’re only whirling machines Even though they May glisten & gleam It’s all a sham A tall tale, a false dream Wait for the real thing To which to cling Jesus wants to give you Something honest, rock solid, So Beautiful Mere words do not suffice To describe the heights Of His eternity's delights Perfection’s Love, Contentment, Joy, Peace, Glories that await Between His Majesty’s Golden Gates Always & forever at His Right Hand

Not a Bad Way to Start the Day
Just wanted to show all the lush greenness along our walking greenway for one last time before it starts to fade. One of our neighbors on the greenway has a beautiful backyard with a pond which has a huge water fountain in the middle. Looking at all that natural beauty so early in the morning is not a bad way to start my day. However, it is getting drier here, and fall is starting so some of the plants are just beginning to wilt and leaves turn brown. I complain about the heat but then miss it when the winter’s cold hits. I hope everyone has a good day and Praise God for His goodness!
Not all Angels Play the Harp!
Not All Angels Play The Harp Standing tall, You soar nobility on display I, in my feeble clay, Watching Wishing To be as loyal as you Fierce, strong Following your leader Into battle Wherever He leads There is an enemy To vanquish Be made to bleed Today, Many are there to save So onward the battle rages Swords, blades glistening Flash in the light As your strong arms raise A new trail is blazed to lead humanity back home Souls to be saved Nations to be raised To live on higher levels To defeat demons, a devil Hell-bent on man’s destruction So forget the peaceful harps Those white fleecy clouds Today, the battle sounds Beneath Christ’s golden crown And mightily you fight on!
Reach for the Deep
Reach for the Deep (not the shallows) Inside each soul Lie such uncharted depths Deep, Sometimes still Sometimes they flow Quickly, rapidly Furiously But nevertheless Permanently present Reach for those depths Within Waiting to be known Discovered Desiring, needing to be filled That burning hunger Unfulfilled, unsatiated Except by life’s truths Raise your eyes Toward heavenly skies Answers can be shown Just waiting to flow, Covering each, every Truly seeking heart Deeper levels to life Can and will start Only God can fill Your empty depths!
I’ve just had a stressful two weeks. I was just getting ready to try and distribute my book, WHEN HEAVEN SIGHS, on other sites besides only Amazon when all of a sudden my memory stick just broke. I had everything on it including the book and the sequel to it. It was totally my fault. I take full responsibility for not backing up the two books on any other place so I lost the only digital copy I had of either. (small scream)
Then of all things my computer crashed. I got the BSOD, the blue screen of death. I lost family photos, some digital art work, poems, a lot of stuff. Coincidence or maybe demonic involvement. Don’t know for sure. But anyway, I have finally gotten back up and running with a newer computer and reestablished some app’s. I know it’s not the worst thing that can happen to a person. I have had cancer two times and am so far doing well, but still it was several years worth of work. God has provided again a way through. Hope everyone has a really great day and stay safe!
I managed to get a couple of shots of the beautiful, white crepe myrtles before the heavy rain knocked off their blooms. Hope you enjoy. Below is a poem for Saturday.
Purity White, Gleaming, dazzling As the sun blazes Giving out life Yet even brighter Your precious face Beams Without boundaries Knowing no limits Your Love lifts each & All Upward to share in The glory of life Originally intended Oh, Lord Jesus Send your glorious Pure White Love, Eternity’s Purity, My way, each & Every day Offset satan’s darkness We wait with eager hearts For your glorious return!!
