Not Just Candy on the Top Shining, glorious On top That bright red Cherry Gleaming, glistening On top of whipped crème A most delicious berry Just a nice add-on Makes it more enticing Milkshake underneath Solid, frothy Coming closer to being Desired But tis an unnecessary Thing Does not decrease Or increase The shake beneath Or detract from its Power To make us wish it To devour I sometimes think Of God & Christ We have made Like that cherry That piece on top of stuff A small enhancement, Merely a small piece Of fluff In comparison to That solid milkshake Rest of our lives Are we really going to Wait until our body dies To see reality, God’s importance, Why wait until that time Of crisis? Today, make God The solid majority Of your life Desire most The Lord Of all the angelic hosts The center of your being As ephemeral you become & more fleeting!
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!
Only true remorse
Causes the flower of God’s grace
to bloom more fully!
