Revolving

Revolving

Life is revolving
Circumstances Shifting, 
Always evolving
Which is okay
God did not mean for
Us to stay
Forever static

But what are we
To become?
Is there an answer 
To that as I run
My life’s race?
Just around what does 
My life revolve?

All existence
Revolves around
God the Son,
God the Father
God the Holy Spirit
Holding all of life
Every living thing
In their hands

Stars spin, 
Lives end & begin
Planets die off
All in tune to 
A universal melody
An eternal song
Chiming out the purity
Infinity’s bright light
In God’s love

So, join in the dance
Let Him also entrance
Your heart
Join the mighty crowds
That have been endowed
With His Grace, Mercy
Forgiveness
Let your life revolve
Around His!

Culture, Culture

Culture, Culture

Culture, culture
Ringing in my ear
It’s sometimes on a day
All I can hear
Floating through the air
On radio waves
Forcing into my mind
Everything it intends to say

TV, movies, books even
Magazines
It intrudes its way in
Trying to please
The lower side of me
But by grace, I have been allowed to see
Vanity, vanity, all its vanity

So I shake my head
Loosen its hold
Coiled around my mind
Step out of the endless line
Of those being controlled 
Selling out their very souls
To a world in love
With only its Self

Instead loosen that self 
To fall in love with
Someone else
A greater God awaits
Holding out hands
To raise you up, to abate
All the noise of a lost,
Sad, desperate world

To rejoin you to himself
He paid in His own Blood!
So do not let the noisy flood
Of a lost culture
Destroy your Joy-filled Hope
Of an eternal paradise insured
Thru faith in our Christ’s cross!!



Not Candy on The Top

 
 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!
  
  
  
  
   

Not Bad for an Older Lady!

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!
