Almost lost my grandson

bmicah

Please, please parents be very vigilant this summer with your little ones in the backyard swimming pools. My little grandson was in the small family swimming pool last Thursday and almost drowned. Horrible experience to try to revive your own grandson. We used the Heimlich maneuver and CPR to slowly bring him back. His lips were turning blue. Thought we had lost him, but Praise God! this week he is running around like nothing happened to him. We got to him just soon enough. So again, please be vigilant with your little ones around the water. I pray God blesses your summer.

Trumpets

 

Trumpets

Trumpets on a vine
Orange glory within green
Along a wooden fence line
Meant for all to see

Miniatures to be sure
In silence they are strung
Muted, without a cure
Simply for my eye’s joy
Have they all been hung

Imbued with intense color
Meant to capture our attention
Will we stop to hear their message
& its silent reminder not to shun?

Of a day in history’s future
Of a Lord returning in glory
Before He arrives to meet us
A trumpet’s loud call will sound
His story

Of majesty, purity, love
And judgement
All will bow, bend the knee
Every eye at last to see
This, His truest face of grace

I wonder,
Will these smaller trumpets
Be allowed at last to join
Their larger brother’s voice
To herald a new world
As all nature sings to rejoice

Longing

Longing

 

Longing

Weak and frail
My physical shell
How much longer
Must I down here roam
Longing for a perfected
home

Orphaned into the
Wild
Of a rough, unruly
Place
Longing for the face
Of love

Though not kept waiting
Long
Soon God sounded
His lovely celestial
song
Of love and delight

Within, I felt amidst
the dark
A light
Small at first but
Still given enough
strength
To fight

To rise
Above my darkened
Heart
That refuses to
Part
With its evil ways

Ancient foe, surely
He knows
He will not win
This battle within
& soon it will begin
The end of
His cruel hold

On our frail
World
From here into
Infinity’s dark
He will
be place, hurled
forever
no more damage
may he do
no more pain to
cause to you
& you & you

Rejoice the light
Arrives
In ever increasing
Tides
Allowed to ride
Will we be
Upon love’s shining
Crystal Seas

Is it Not?

Is it Not?

Is it not
To be read
A writer writes
Formed words
From thoughts
Within one’ head
Or heart

Others may read
Writers, I, must
Take great care
Walking in line
With you, Lord
Of this I have to
Stay aware

But still there
Is a joy
To express
This God may
Allow
But be careful.
In this can be
Great power

From a Spirit
So Ancient & Holy
Every moment
Remembering
In His Heart
His Creation
Loving us
Completely & purely.

Renewal’s Perfection

handworldart

Renewal’s Perfection

A lamb, slain
Bloodied by men
Lost in imperfection.
Once encased in
Flesh,
Now living in power

Desiring lusting
After us, humans,
The lost.
On a cruel hill
Of pain
Absorbed our darkness

Into Himself.

Abolished, destroyed
Hell’s hold
Over man forever
With

Grace, Mercy, Forgiveness.

The Father’s Power
On display in a weak,
Human-like face
Showing the glory of
True Grace.

He is coming back again
For all time and finally
recreating a dying, lost
World, sin-soaked

He will
Absorb
All our evil, darkness
And give us and this
Earth
His Blazing light
And living perfection.

We rest in the hands of the Living God, not Covid-19. Pray and Praise God. He says in Malachi Return to me and I will return to You. Praise God!!

Ownership?

In America we have become a nation of entitlement. People feel like they are entitled to everything the earth can produce, but the truth is we actually own nothing of this earth. We are just very temporarily using God’s property. God owns all of it for the ‘earth is the Lord’s and the fullness therein’. God owns every atom, molecule, square inch, every heartbeat, every breath on it because He made all of it and us. He owns us and can do with us whatever He desires. Fortunately for us, He is trying to love us into Paradise with Himself. John the Baptist said ‘He can raise up children of Abraham from the stones’. He is in control of everything.

Today women  in this country even think they’re entitled to kill their own unborn children while still in the womb, and so many of the ones we let live we don’t try to teach them about Christ, God and the Holy Spirit at all. No wonder they feel so lost. They have no moral compass by which to steer their lives. We don’t even try to hold our marriages together for the sake of our own little babies! Don’t think as a nation we will not have to answer for this before the Living God.

Our country is in trouble spiritually. We should all get down on our knees before the Living God, praise Him and beg for forgiveness. We are so blessed that He is the most loving, kindest and most forgiving Spirit in existence. Praise God!!

Beauty!!

beautyofGod_1

 

Beauty
Before beginnings
Of time, space, energy
Matter
Only heavenly ecstasies
Existed

Even so You decided
To create
Your own eternity
Written
In fleshly forms

After You spoke
Light appeared
Your breath touched the
Ground
Dust arose and we
Walked

Up, rise up
Live, enjoy my
Presence
Stay within my boundaries
Of love

Then time shattered
As we rejected You,
Rebelled,
Lost our place in
Your paradise
But

You were not finished
With us
You came, died
Took our place
On that cross
So a waiting universe,
holding its Breath,
could see
Your Beauty

May God Bless Your Day. Praise God!!

Daily Distractions

GodvsSatan

You have an ancient enemy, Satan, the devil, whatever word, both are the same. He is the father of all lies, and he wants to distract you, however he can, to take your attention off of your real created purpose which is to be in intimate fellowship with your beautiful, wonderful living Creator God. We are to be reflections of His beauty, love and glory to the rest of His creation. Focus. He will use anything, lust for money, love, ego, attention. Don’t let him deter or distract you. God wants to share all of His beauty with you and let you find Him and get to know Him. Praise God!!
