I am blessed enough to live in an area of the world where we have all four seasons. The first blushes of autumn are just beginning with a few reds, oranges and golds in the tree leaves. I hope everyone can enjoy their autumn. Have a great day. Praise God!

First Blushes

First blushes
Are like
First loves
Are 
Exciting
Tingling from your
Nose to your toes

Like a drug of
Exhilaration
So are nature’s
First blushes
As season’s change
Just a first glimpse
Introduction,
Anticipation
Of something
Beautiful yet
To come

So as autumn’s
First colors
Come out to play
They remind that
Life is here to stay
This is a whispered
Promise
Of even more joy
On the way

But why or 
Maybe,
Perhaps
Autumn dies in 
Such fiery glories
Of raging oranges, reds
& golds
Because it will be
God’s fiery intense love
That ends all the struggles
For man’s eternal soul
ushering out everything old

So, as angels begin to 
Sing
Of approaches of winter
Their voices remind us
Another re-creation
Awaits from God
Re-created New World,
End of all pain, strife
Suffering
As we look into the face
Of our Resurrected King
He announces the return
Of mankind’s new Spring!

Maybe Your Last Chance

Maybe Your Last Chance

Written within the world’s 
Greatest Book
Are words of Life & Glory
Everyone should take a 
Good hard long look
Read of the complete & 
Honest truth of Man’s story
Words that explain our Existence

But unfortunately
There is a dark side to
All of this light
Because try as hard as 
We can with all of our might
Never can we save ourselves

We are not capable of 
Pulling ourselves out 
Of our depravity
We cannot be our own god
If that is the role you seek
For that designation
We are much, much too weak

It took God’s own act of kindness
To pull us out of all the darkness
From a golden throne of glory
Christ died alone in agony, sweat & blood
To change the outcome of our eternal story

So today while you can take
One more breath
& your heart still beats
Do not let your ancient enemy
Steal, defeat or cheat
You out of your one last chance

While for you it is still Today
Begin a complete fresh new start
This Moment give Him your whole heart
None of us knows how many more 
Of our heart beats are left
Death awaits at every step
& after that,
THERE ARE NO MORE SECOND CHANCES
THERE WILL BE NO BACKWARD GLANCES

Crisis

Spiritual or physical
The word still means
The same
In a dictionary it is
Given a name
Of

Critical turning point
Catastrophe
Impending disaster
Possible undesirable outcome

Is it just me
Or
Does it seem to be
Across the world
Getting worse?

I know in this country
I live in
There seems to be a rising of
What used to be called
Sin

Self-centeredness
Increasing
Respect for the home,
Families,
Decreasing

Unending lust for
Money, possessions
Some used for good
But also without discretion

To build up or 
To utterly destroy
Forgetting to remember
Evil can also be found 
Inside of toys

So do not let your
Days be wasted
Remember words of old
In God’s timeless Book
Are told

And perhaps
These Crises we’ve created
Maybe, just may be, 
But only with God’s help, abated

Purity

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!!

Praise God and have a great day!

Entertainers!!

Entertainers

Don’t just waste my time
And yours
Please I adjure
I desperately need the truth
For of my life 
That will be its root 

Rebuke my sin
How else will I 
Be allowed to win
Paradise!
I need sound advice
Teaching
From you pastors
Of today

I don’t want for you
To entertain me
Make me happy
I need to learn how
To be holy
For clearly
That is the only way
That I may be saved
From hell

You have been given 
The world’s greatest opportunity
You’ve been given the
Chance to help others see
The living Christ
Before they die
Without a second chance to try
And follow Him

For after death 
There are no more second chances
So tell us the whole truth
Of Christ
Before we die
Don’t water it down
Sugar coat it
For I seek a golden crown
Only He can give!




Upside Down or Right Side Up!

Upside Down or Right Side Up?

A world in chaos
Lacking a clear direction
Things, ideas, get tossed aside
Each day, let go
Doesn’t this show
A world in confusion
Upside down?

Where Up is Down
& Down is Up
Restless words 
Tossed about on 
Distressed waves 
Of anxious noise
Peace on some days
Seems almost unheard

But someone stands
Knocking
On everyone’s heart
Longing to be allowed to impart
His Peace-filled Spirit 

Bring about a new day
Create within us a new way
To live
Trying Himself to give
To His world a new direction
Turn it Right Side Up
Where Up is truly Up
& Down is truly Down

So do not be afraid
To go against the grain
Of a lost, bewildered world
And for yourself & others gain
A better sense of how to live
Where confusion does not reign
Under this, His One Holy Name,
Christ Jesus!
