Don’t Blame God I fuss, I cuss, I spit, I hiss I extend my claws Without a pause I’ll let you have it Then down I shrink After a moment to think Why did I do that? Lost control again I simply cannot win Control Over this lustful, errant Soul Of mine Maybe with more time? But no I know That will never happen Not in my day Will I ever have complete sway Who can I blame To mind comes the only name, Myself, me I am the only one I see Standing inside, beside me So do not blame God for Our destructive of life behavior Nor can you blame your neighbor He has his own evil to deal with God holds out his light Love, joy peace Always within your reach It is Your Choice So do not keep On blaming God For our compliance, our nod Toward the darkness
185,000 Very long ago On a righteous throne King Hezekiah Of Judah reigned He gave all his praise To the one true God And to only His Name But from the northeast Like a ravening beast Came an evil king, Sennacherib of Assyria Was his name For death & destruction Great was his fame In faith, King Hezekiah Prayed to the one true Lord of all Received an answer to His most earnest call Thru Isaiah the prophet God said, “He will not enter this city Or shoot an arrow here He will not come before it With shield. . .” Later that night In the darkest of lights God’s angel With a powerful roar Was sent to destroy 185,000, Warriors all, Strong & tall Died that night By God’s hand Jerusalem was saved Not one soul inside her walls Was sent to an early grave God will do the same For you, for us We just need to have Faith & learn to trust His ways Read, learn to look Inside that most Glorious book, Scriptures to help you Your enemies defeat & at your feet No matter what they are Doubt, fear, persecution Pain He will destroy Down they will all lay & in your time, your day 185,000 warriors For you, God will slay!
I got to ride my bike again today on a longer ride, almost ten miles. It’s my new hobby, and I love it! I am a 2X cancer survivor, and I’m grateful God lets me enjoy the bike riding. Each day feels like a gift to still be able to enjoy life with my family & friends. May God bless your day. Praise Him for his grace and mercy!!
Also I could not resist this photo of some beautiful, massive old sycamore trees at the water’s edge. In winter without the leaves, you can see their white bark even better. Have a good day!

Revelation 7:9-10 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water’, and ‘God will wipe away every tear from their eyes’.

In blindness & Stumbling, fumbling Is this not what We all seek? Seeking joy, peace, Fulfillment, Love We wander, fight Shove For our share Of this earth When all true life Flows freely from above.
