WHEN HEAVEN SIGHS Paperback & Ebook FREE on Kindle Unlimited https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08DWB7F39

On a steamy day in August, a young Bible student dies from the Ebola virus on a downtown sidewalk. Close to midnight on the same day, tires screech and a young girl screams as Father Tom McClarin plummets to his death from the roof of the cathedral where he serves. Both men’s destinies have been linked forever by their mutual belief in a mysterious document. What message could it hold to cause an unseen, powerful enemy to use everything within its influence to destroy its ancient text and anyone who has knowledge of it?

Dedicated detective Hayden Douglan and Samual Thomas, a local pastor, follow the clues piling up and conclude both deaths were homicides. Struggling to contain the virus and dodging death threats to their families, their faith and courage will be tested as the investigation leads from corruption in the highest levels of the police department and the religious community to a powerful mystic cloistered behind the walls of a historic monastery near Vienna, Austria.

A Puzzle

A Puzzle
(I do not understand)

It is a puzzle
I confess I do not understand
Why such a great &
Beautiful land
Would leave its heritage
Behind

As in Jeremiah
Before God destroyed
His people
‘Has a nation ever changed
Its gods?
(Yet they are not gods at all)
But my people have exchanged
Their Glorious God
For worthless idols’ Jeremiah 2:11
of expensive cars
large houses
endless hours of
pleasure seeking

and worst of all
money
When the decrees of
The Lord
Are sweeter than honey?
By them we will 
Be judged
Bear me no grudge
For these my words
But they are true

So I pray for a turning
Away 
From all these
Worthless idols
Of only clay
To the One True Lord
In whom is stored
Kept, prepared
For His true believers
Above endlessly blue skies
His unending Paradise!!

Loss

Loss


What is this sense of loss
Of a deep sadness,
Despair
Then I raise my head
To look at You
& You smile!
And my heart is even 
More beguiled
And enticed
To follow You

But I am stuck
On the other side of 
An uncrossable chasm
For I know on my own
I cannot 
Even begin to start
To conquer its deep gorges
A dark fog envelops 
My mind & heart

Then someone touches
Down with a hand
It is Your Son of Man
His blood paved the way
Because I was oh so lost
Until He reached across
So on this dark side
I need never stay
Alone, rejected digressing
From your eternal blessings

Christ is that bridge
That eternal ridge
Of hope & joy
For everyone to cross
Over into God’s love
You do not have to sit in
The darkness of eternal loss
But you must take that first step 
Reach for the outstretched hand
Of the undying Son of Man!

outside the church

Outside the Church

Four walls can a prison make
But prison bars confine
Limit access, restrict body & the mind
However, access to the Sublime
Was never meant to be denied
To anyone

Christ, God, Holy Spirit
Do not just exist, live
In a building one day a week
His name, face, presence
Everywhere we may seek

So His name do not speak
Only in a building
Say it out loud everywhere
Stores, neighbors, from your office chair
Say His name out loud
Be it to one person only
or in a denser crowd

Just say it with great joy
His name is oh so dearly needed
satan’s darkness it has the power to destroy
At one word, CHRIST,
The demons flee,
Fall & tremble on their knees

Carry Him out of that church building
Be His witness, messenger, everywhere
To others His great love, surpassing joy
You will be privileged to share 
Be His hands, His feet, His mouth, His heart
Give to others His glorious, new, fresh start

Summer Pics

I love the way the water catches the blues of the sky and the yellow and greens of the plants along our greenway walking trail. Today, I got really lucky and caught a female deer drinking at the edge of the river and then some full-grown turkeys in the wild grass. The largest looked like he would make a good Thanksgiving dinner as he was huge, almost as tall as my shoulder. Enjoy the pictures of the wild flowers and have a great day! Praise God for the beauty of His earth.
