A Big Deal To an orphan such As I One of the biggest deals I can spy Is For someone to desire Cannot lift them higher Than to want to be My parent And that is exactly What God, the Holy Lord Creator Wants to be For each & everyone You are able to see Wants to be your Father Daddy, Papa Wants every soul to gather Under His wings forever For all of eternity No small trickle Wave after wave rushing Toward you pushing Torrential flood Of perfection’s love So step into the flow Take the time to Get to know The One & Only God Who loves you the most It’s the biggest, best deal This world will ever see!
Today We Want I want, you want We all want Those words ring Truer than any other Taunt We all need & we all have wants Even as Christians We all want To: Get to heaven Live in God’s presence Forever For anyone there will be Nothing better For although God’s Forgiveness, Grace Is given so freely Still, it is not given Cheaply The cost was Christ’s Blood & life Given in extreme pain & strife Grace is, was not then Nor is now cheap It may cost you everything Maybe even your very life But Is it not worth that To live in His forever light? So do not let us, Christians of today, Let mans’ world over us Hold its complete sway And tell us we may live However we wish And still receive that Most precious of gifts Because God does expect That most costly of words, OBEDIENCE!
Driving in Cars Going Nowhere People everywhere Driving in cars going Nowhere Racing, rushing, Careening, screaming ‘Get out of my way I have a very busy day Going nowhere’. Sure, we have duties Other people to take care of Obligations done out of love But the rest, well. . . Sometimes just a mess Going nowhere Not always in cars Sometimes in planes Or a lonely solitary train But Have we lost the will To just be still Instead of always Going nowhere? Do we forget we each Come to the same place At the foot of death’s gate With no choices left Must we end life with Only regrets From always seeking The nowhere? We end up at the foot Of God’s throne Coming from childhood Or when we’re grown To be given either His light Or a forever darkest night Must we always roam Toward that nowhere So just STOP Learn how to choose So a much better eternity’s home You do not have to lose!
Never Going Never is A powerful word Unending As a circle Always there Like infinity’s Space, Eternity’s face Today I think It is so sad So very sad Most people Do not know The facts of life That will make them The most glad The happiest Information For any creature Living in this, Most beloved Of God’s Creation, Who & what you are. And so they live Not looking up At their home Instead, they roam Aimlessly Missing the blessings Falling out of an Overflowing cup Held in God’s Gracious hand Flowing with things Meant only for His man To bear his image His likeness As only we can We, humans, are After all Made of the Same eternal spirit Have a powerful call On each of our lives To bond, relate In intimacy with His eternal face Each of us, On the face of this planet Is an eternal living soul NEVER GOING TO CEASE TO EXIST Even after you desist, No longer live In this most frail, Human shell

I was trying to catch the last of this summer’s wildflowers on our greenway system down by the river. The drier season of Fall has set in so the flowers are starting to fade away, but there’s always next Spring! I hope you have a blessed and good Saturday.
