Wise Men Still Seek Him Today

W-hen the fullness of time had come, Jesus was born behind an Inn in a cave-like stable.
I-n the Inn there was no room for the Son of God, no room for the Saviour of men.
S-tar was shining so bright above the stable for the shepherds to find their way to Him.
E-ven angels proclaimed His birth to those shepherds "Unto you is born this day."
 
M-anger is where Mary and Joseph first laid him.  It was filled with hay.
E-very animal there must have known that their Creator had come that day. 
N-o one knew the depth of love God had, to give His Son to dwell among men.
 
S-ame star guided three kings from the Orient, who studied the stars and heavens.
T-hese wise men from the East came saying "Where is He that is born King"
I-n their hands they brought him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrr.
L-ike these three wise men, wise men still seek him today! 
L-ove is the reason that God sent His only Begotton Son into the world to save us.
 
S-eeking for you and me, yes God was seeking for us because we had left Him.
E-veryone, yes, all we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone to his own way.
E-ach one has to make his on decision to follow Him or not to follow Him.
K-ing, born to be a King. King of the ages. King of the past. King of the future.

H-eaven, He came from Heaven to earth to show us the right way.
I-niquity, the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
M-elody, He gives us a sweet melody, we sing many songs of praise to Him.
 
T-ree, A Christmas tree, the love that Jesus had for us, to die on a tree.
O-nly one life and how soon it passes. Only in life can we accept His Love.
D-eliverance, He came from Heaven to preach deliverance to the captives.
A-cknowlege Him and accept Him. Behold now is the accepted time.
Y-ou, Yes, this Christmas Love was for You.  Will You accept this love?

For Brian Strands Christmas Love contest.

I Am Not Afraid

      On the day the Lord calls me home I will not be 
afraid as I know He loves us one and all and to this
earth we are only on loan
      We have spent all our lives here with family and 
friends and so we leave this earth to go home to be 
with our Lord and our family and friends who have
gone home to Heaven before us
       And so our lives go full circle as the Lord sent us 
down from Heaven to accomplish the things He wants 
us to do here on earth and as we complete this we will 
be called back home to heaven to live forevermore
       I am not afraid as I patiently wait for my call to 
enter the Kingdom Of Heaven where I will wait for my 
family and friends to come home and be with our Lord
forevermore.

Him

He knocks, but you do not answer the door for Him.
He wonders why you ignore Him 
and why you have turned your back on Him.
All he asks is that you believe in Him.
Accept Him.
Spend a little time with Him.
Have a daily talk with Him.
Is it too much to ask that you do well for Him? 
To walk right with Him? 
Have fellowship with Him? 
Let Him comfort and draw you near Him.
In your times of trials pray to Him.
He loves you dearly and would like to welcome you in Heaven with Him.

There is a place

There is a place you can go that is full of only love and Warmth .
you will be surrounded by a light that shines from the Heavens ,
Sprinkles of Silver and Gold. 

This place is filled with brilliant colors of Purple , vibrant Gold, all colors.
not one Color is less significant then another ,
for every color is equal here .

This place is surrounded by the beauty of different Flowers.
All flowers have significance here . No one Flower is better then another .
All Flowers are equal here .

It is important you know , you can cry here , and should cry as often as needed .
For  the tears will cleanse your Soul and give the Flowers water to grow.
No  one Tear is insignificant here , every tear has value and not one is better then another .

 money holds no value ,  Where you live , what you own,  has no significance here .

You will be surrounded by a beautiful light that shines from the Heavens .
A shining warm light will encircle you and allow nothing to hurt you . 
Hate will be shed at the door light a old jacket of no use. 

There is a place of beauty and  Worth.
This place will not be found on Earth .
It is a place where no one person is better then another .

I'm my Daddy Made Over

Dedicated to my Dad Jerry W. Niday 3/20/1952 - 6/18/2013


I am who I am because of him
He’s the reason for my son’s name
He gave me my courage & my strength
To stand tall even when standing wasn’t easy
Stand for the ones who can’t
To think and fend for myself
I’m my Daddy made over

Taught me to fight back 
To never back down
How to pick myself back up
When I’ve been knocked down
Fight for what I believe
I’m my Daddy made over

He gave me my stubbornness 
Gave me my pride
Gave me my temper
Taught me not to take crap
To speak my mind no matter who
Work for what I want
I’m my Daddy made over

How to keep my emotions in check
How to handle large amounts of pain
When in trouble he always had my back
He knew how my mind worked better than anyone
I got it from him
I’m my Daddy made over

Even though he’s gone
I’ll stand and continue on 
I may stumble I may fall 
May even get hurt along the way
But I’ll pick myself back up
I’ll dust myself off and stand tall
I’m honored and proud to say
I’m my Daddy made over

THE LAST DAYS

The days seem to go by so fast. there is a void in the air, the birds have lost their vibrant beat, the ocean has lost its luster, the soil feels solid and dry.
 
My soul feels as if it has left my body before my death, my dreams haunt my day, the tears stain my steps, my doctor says that it is depression, I say that it is reality, I am intoxicated by society,I am numb by perscriptions.
 
Why do I feel so isolated within myself? is there no one in my painfully tight shoes? can anyone understand my pain? can anyone melt in my sorrows? why am I this way? why is the world so cruel? why can't I be normal?
 
Wait! I am normal, what am I saying, I know now, the veil has been lifted, humanity is my enemy, the sins that drip from their sweat, the dread that follows their shadows, their souls of black, their intentions of greed pull a shade across their eyes.
 
They are destined for doom, they will not be saved, they will not find salvation, they belittle me, they curse me, they shame me, but they are right about one thing, I am different, unlike them, I will be saved in the last days.

I Do Believe

"I Do Believe" 

The purpose of LIFE is to {Living In Faith Ever} 
to enrich God within us 
to an optimum level 
so that We as Humans 
can be guided by God 
to fuel out brothers and sisters 
with the same driving force 
to connect with the living God, 
to His existence and 
to See the Invisible, 
Believe the Incredible, and 
to Receive the Impossible 
to our everlasting journey 
to Heaven.

The Hypocritical Christian

I am the hypocritical Christian.
I say I follow Christ,
But I'm still consumed by my demons.
I go to church on Sunday,
But I refuse to invite someone back.
I want to serve on mission,
But I'm too afraid to act.
They think I read The Bible,
But I just fall asleep in it.
They think I'm positivity and smiles,
But underneath I'm death and addictions.
They think I'm clean and pure,
But I'm broken and mistaken.
I say I'm not worthy of His love,
But Jesus will never let me be forsaken.
I pray long prayers,
But inside they're empty repetition.
It might look as if my faith is strong,
But my core is too easily shaken.
I say the things I'm supposed to say,
But don't follow His actions or obey.
I speak the truth the church wants to hear,
But deep inside on matters I don't know what to believe.
I walk in shame as if I'm not good enough
To be loved by God and saved through Christ,
But there is nothing I could ever do to earn His peace;
It's a free gift.
I accept;
Now forgiven, changed, and released.
Thank You God,
Thank You Jesus,
Thank You Holy Spirit!
In Jesus' Holy Name,
We pray,
Amen!

Lonely Dreams

I never knew following dreams could be this lonely,
But up on the hill, looking back, thank God I'm not the old me.
If the tears will fall, let them be;
I believe this is God's plan, follow your dreams.

Money

Money money, ringing in your tills,
Calling us to worship,
The hundred dollar bills.
Bend our knees in wonder,
Bow our heads in awe,
At the power of the liar,
Who now controls us all.
From the darkest deep caverns,
To the stars in the sky,
From the infinite universe,
To the strangers passing by.

From your inner most conviction,
To your laughing in the night,
From everything you 're  seeing,
To everything out of sight.

The new God has risen,
To claim the holy throne,
The one that we have emptied,
Our hearts all cold as stone.

The throne that we have emptied,
We killed the rightful king,
Sold his crown an sceptre,
Pawned his sacred  ring.

Raised his bleeding body,
Up on that bloody hill,
The silent lamb still bleeding,
As the money fills your tills.

I Will Lift Up My Eyes


I WILL LIFT UP MY EYES

I will lift up my eyes unto the hills
To the God of Heaven and seek His will

The Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
Has been my help before my birth

He never slumbers, nor does He sleep
I forever will be in His watchful keep

He is the shade on my right hand
Under His protection, I'll forever stand

I'm preserved from evil, He preserves my soul
I'll trust Him until His face I behold

My going out, and my coming in
Are preserved forever only by Him

One day I'll stand on Heaven's shore
To reign with Him forevermore

Heaven For A Poet

My own piece of heaven, a quiet little nook,
With only the finest parchment in a leather book,
A feather quill pen and an ocean of ink,
My thoughts would never stop to think,
Every single line I write would rhyme,
My poetry would be beautiful and sublime,
I'd be entertained daily, by Dr. Seuss,
And, put to sleep nightly, by Mother Goose,
Lessons from Byron, Shelley, Coleridge and Poe,
Teaching me every single thing that they know.

My own piece of heaven, will have to wait,
Until one day, when I must meet my fate,
So, for now I will have to be content,
With my own words that may be heaven sent,
Inspiration from my idols is all I need,
Writing poetry in a notebook from Mead,
With this cheap, plastic Bic pen,
And a dream to be, just like them.

Letter To The Lord

Dear Lord
I think Heaven is a price I can't afford
If such a place did exist
I would've hesitated before I wrote this
Since a kid I was never really into religion
So many to choose from how do I make a final decision
I rely on my own intuition
To make sense of this world with near perfect precision
I was taught to never believe without proof
So I never took time to go to church and confess sins in the booth
Speaking of church I never attend
It's more devils than angels in there I can't pretend
I'm a certified believer
My mom was caged by drug demons
I know it was you that freed her
Please dont be mad it's just my generosity
Multiplied by my curiosity
I admit when you let Tashawn die I looked to the sky with animosity
We celebrate Jesus' B-day on Dec 25th 
Mine on the 21st
The world will end on 12-21-2012
Now I feel the worst
Well that's what the Mayan civilization said
On my 22nd b-day the Earth shall be dead
Whether black or white 
I can still worship you right
You will bless my curses with all your might
I can't help but feel some things about religion isn't true
Is it true what they say about Heaven and Hell
How a casket is for "Rebirth"
A coccoon
Or shell
I think when we die Heaven is having dreams
So why every night in my sleep I scream
Is hell having nightmares
Who does the Devil think he scares
Is it true when a person dies
A person is born
You bring babies to this world
But leave families torn
Who did you bring here to replace Tashawn
My Aunt Beverly
You think so cleverly
What about Allison's baby Aaliyah
Taneka's grandfather
Richard Jr should've been dead
Yes my father
When he had that stroke
He should not have lived to see 50
Why did you choke
How did this Earth get made
Was the 7 day Creation a must
Or luckily the planet formed from cosmos and stardust
If you're the God of this planet what about Mars, Pluto, Saturn
My head is lighting up like a Jack-o-Lantern
In one dream I had I died on a crucifix
Die for everybody's sins
The idea is ludicrous
What's the relevations 
Of Revelations
My curiosity is typical
I wish I was mythical
Silly me
Like Moses I wish I could split the Red Sea
I wish we could talk 
That's why I don't pray
You may be busy with someone else's prayers anyway
Take a minute to talk to me and I shall kiss your gown's hem
We can sit in the middle of Bethlehem
Curiosity is a price everyone can afford
Sincerly Richard J C Keen
To You Lord

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

Enter a storybook tale
Where I can be 
The heroine you hail
Lucid dreams of soft reflection
A touch heated with lust and desired protection
A breathe a gasp as we succeed 
Join the fairytale with me
Valiant night within dark eyes
the right movement and I make them shine
like moonlight on the steamy hot spring
care to follow for a little dip with me
Trailing like the water at my fingertips
Grasp me around my hips
As close as the breeze on my skin 
Whisper lies as I let you in 
Lips mumbling up my thighs
bare heart exposed to the sky 
fire burning in my veins
Am I a mistress of this lust or simply a slave
Trembling with desire
Take me till we've lost count of the hours
enter this storybook tale
Where I can be the heroine you hail

The Spirit of Christmas, Dover, Arkansas

In our little Arkansas Dover town, we never clown around, about the sacrifice
Christmas is about Christ, and his great love, which suffices 

We live and let live, to our charities we give, for in heaven above
It's all about Love, refining one's self, to enjoy in Dove, who is love

We put down the mind of strife, we celebrate Christ's birth
The sacrifice, `tis about life, and knowing it’s worth

Increasing our unction, never to wane, the Lamb's fame
In public we still pray, at our functions we still say, “in the Name”

In celebration of Love's life, we give up, all of our means
No hazing, it's amazing, all over town, Nativity scenes

To suffices our worship, the special day is necessary
Signs of heaven, Love's leaven, the Babe, and mother Mary

The Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, some don't want to get even close, (or near)
For they fear, the special day of love's cheer, unto Christ, so dear

Have a very, very, merry, Christmas, Devonshire, to heaven for sure, and to all at Soup
Now year is close to over, don't be a rover, please visit Dover, “old Moses love scop”

God of Light

God of Light

I awaken 
In the dark of night,
And face my lord
The God of Light

Who guides me 
Thru the haze of pain,
And takes on him
My guilt and shame

My comfort 
As he takes my hand,
And shows me
How to rise and stand

Sinless, blameless
Once again,
Because He chose 
To call me friend

A wretched man
Though I may be,
He offers fellowship
To me

I lay no claim
To being just,
He gives me grace
In trade for trust

Impossible 
For any man,
Without the mercy
Of “I Am”

The song of God 
Is in my ear,
Calming each
And every fear

He sings 
His weary child to sleep
This loving shepherd
To his sheep

Protected from
All earthly harm
As I slumber 
In his arms

No longer frightened
By the night
My father
Is the God of Light

YOU BROKE ME

What makes me human is You
You who broke me and push me through
Yes,though You know I was not strong
You caused me to cry or so long
So many times I ask if You really exist
Though many times also You heard my pleas
I was so wrong to blame You for all my sadness
For truly it is You who brings gladness

So many times You tried to break me before
But I was so hard and rebelled more
Yet You never stopped breaking me
Coz You were concerned of what my future could be
You never wanted me to go the wrong way
That's why You wanted me to pray
So You could guide me everyday
Until into my bed i lay

From a frozen heart You broke me to become human
For my heart never melts though put under the sun
You changed my whole being
I was changed by the grace of Your loving
Because You care so much about me
You wanted me to live with you in heaven for eternity,
For the chance to be with You forever
YOU BROKE ME to become a person much better

Thank You Father or breaking me to a new person
I didn't understand at first for I didn't know the 
reason
Thank You for the tears that have poured out from
my eyes
Thank You for the sorrows that have made me cry
For now I know I'm a new being
Changed by the trials You have given.

The Easter Prayer of Thanks

The Easter Prayer of Thanks "2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow." Matt 28:2-3 NIV God, thank you for the gift of Easter; The sacrifice of your Son so treasured. To save our souls through your grace and mercy, That by heaven alone can be measured. Thank you for giving us hope; The hope of life after the grave. Winter dies and Spring comes to life— The resurrection of the saved! Your hand rules the universe With great glory and power. We give thanks for your love for us, And for every beautiful opening flower. We thank you for the birds That sing your praises every morn, And for the lofty mountains That with Winter's snow you adorn. Thank you for friends and family And the blessings that they bring, At this very special time— Christ's resurrection and the grandeur of Spring! Thank you for salvation Made possible by your love. Thank you that we have the hope of heaven— Easter's promise from above. May we all meet our Redeemer, As you come for us in the air, Because of Easter's hope of eternity, and the privilege of prayer! Amen Copyright © 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

Wisps

"Friend,
Mind wandering through misty woods.
You don't understand your purpose.
Friend,
I knew you too little,
Please do not shed your salty emotions,
Not out of anger, not out of sadness.
Friend,
You now lose your way so easily,
You sink, you burst, you burn inwardly.
You weep from frustrations, 
From the guilt of an honest smile,
From pains, that you forget for a moment,
That come swiftly back to haunt you of your loss.
I understand, dear friend.
You once had a light and the woods seek to snuff it out.
Do not fear, dear friend,
Friend follow me, as I once did you.
Friend, now you see?
Yes, you see,
The little wisps in the fog that guide us home."

He Loved You

He loved you too, you know
Loved you like his very own
In away you were
You came into his life as my friend
Through the years you grew to be my brother in arms 
Along the way you became the son he never had

He loved you as a friend
He loved you even more as a son
A son he never had
When things began to spiral out of control
You stayed when so many others ran away
You helped when I couldn’t

You meant a great deal to him
You never looked at him differently 
Nor did you treat him differently
You stood by his side
When he fell, you stood by his side and mine
You were willing to help me fight his battle for him 
You were there from the beginning 
You were there until the bitter end
Always remember my friend, my brother
He loved you more than you’ll ever know

Dedicated to close Family friend Rodney Howard. He loved my Daddy just as much as I did/do.

There is a Heaven to Gain and a Hell to Shun

The Scriptures teach that there is a Heaven to gain and a Hell to shun !

We Preachers need to pass the Word,
for there are far too Many which have never heard.

The world mocks and says "all my friends shall be there",
The Lord says that there shall be "no parties for them to share".

The rich man asked Abraham to send Lazarus,
The Lord sent Jesus the best He had for us.

Today we think that "the rich man and the wealthy" are truly blest,
The Bible teaches that for all eternity without Jesus they will have no rest...

The beggar Lazarus did not enter Heaven because he ate crumbs and dogs 
licked his soars nor because in this life he did suffer,
He entered paradise because he believed by faith what Moses and the Prophets 
had offered !

Miracles cannot save nor people rising from the dead will change the hearts of 
men,
It is the preaching of God's Word for faith in them to be heard the Spirit to 
convince them.

The heat truly is extreme, dark as sackcloth shall be the sight, Mankind shall 
scream:
No rest for them, their names forgotten, teeth shall they gnash, no room for them 
to even dream...

Will you use your "wealth and lend us your health",
To get the message out for now is the time to "SHOUT" !

God save us all and give us all angels wings:

Help us to bring plenty of persons with us to those gates of pearl,
For we know that Thou doth Love this World !

So Preachers preach and Teachers teach:

For there are many that if they were to die shall receive eternal pain...

For they were never told the message to God RUN !
Because there is a Heaven to gain and a Hell to SHUN !

(You never know it could be your family, friends or loved ones, if only we had 
shared)


by William Tell - (based on Luke 16:19-31)

We Lost More Than a Dad

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost half of how we came to be
We lost we four girls first love
We lost our Best Friend

We lost more than just a Dad that day
Our Mom lost her Soul Mate, Her other half 
Our children lost their Papaw
We lost our family’s foundation 
We lost the glue that held us together

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost the Strongest man we ever knew 
We lost the man we looked up too
We lost we four girls Teacher of many things

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We four girls lost our Hero
We lost some of our Light
We lost part of our Heart
We lost part of our Soul

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost some of our Courage
We lost some of our Strength
We lost some of our will to fight back
We lost some of our will to carry on
We four girls lost more than a Dad
We lost more than just a Dad that day

Mind and Sound

Only light can penetrate the 
darkness
that resides in the default state 
of mind
I descend from beta to delta 
through
binaural beats; instantly caught 
between frequencies beyond 
time 

I absorb amplitudes of acoustic 
energy
and I learn to just be earth 
Since I am the earth 
and because I am of
the one that is the source of its 
existence, 
I've owned the power of 
omnificence 

I realize now that I AM because
HE is since I am from that, a 
descendant 
Created in the image of a 
thought
and a feeling from the 
Universal Mind
I tune in to this vibration from 
rhythmic
pulse that manipulates 
subconscious minds

Immersed  between 4 and 7 
hertz;
brainwaves halt to a conscious 
sleep
All  chakras are aligned shining 
crown energy 
and now my consciousness 
begins to reap! 
and light begins to penetrate 
the harmonious beams
that were already there
constant and always there 

is now flooded with sound 
patterns
that force brainwaves to submit 
to power
of omnipresent sound that 
always was 
and always will be connected to 
the Source from which I came
so I extend exponentially 
beyond;
physical time and space

I long to embrace the intensity 
of gamma rays
I give way to the coded sounds 
that resonate from the inner 
core
and continue to connect 
through the binaural beats that 
-  
remind me of before

Always familiar but ignored
until found by gaining 
knowledge of self
I listen with the intent to excel 
while reaping an abundance of 
benefits and rewards
Listen!! 
It's already yours

Just reach out and grab it 
as long as intention and ego is 
checked
the universe will correspond 
accordingly
it will deliver a life to you divine 
and orderly
Just listen to the sounds that 
were there from before
They will guide to to the 
vibration from the core
and it will guide you to connect 
directly with the source

Grandfather

Here lies the best Grandfather,
One who was very considerate.
Remembering him as a child,
I would sit on his lap.
He was a rare person indeed.
He was a colonel in the Army.
Also superlative of a gentelman.
Here lies the best grandfather,
May he rest in peace.

The Morning Star

The Morning Star
By Nate Spears
                                
There’s clarity in the depths on my deepest thought
I’m never blind to a world of darkness
I’m challenged by whatever in time
Defeated by my ambition in others

Close to my last day
But far from my last night
And I’m light years away
From my very last fight
 
The actions of the man
Creates the path of his life
The absence of the man
Restrains his rights
The mentality of a man
Saves the day he's granted 
The intent of the man
Leads him the way the earth has planned it


 So feel my rose as it fades 
Feel my pedals bring a new days
As I sprout beyond the stars
To a galaxy that stands out
The route brings the creation to light
After the day 
After the night
After the darkness
After my arrival 
The morning is tainted
The day is seen in a human’s eye 
Sight has been sinful before and after
You and I
This is the heart filled reason
For the birth Christ.

The Autumn Affect

There's something unspecific about the autumn nights
A certain shade of color that uplifts my inner child's eyes
Beside a cashmere moon Venus and Jupiter shine bright
Complimented by a sea of blinking infinite twilight
The scent of burning oak lingers in the air from home made fires
Reminiscent of a time when this man was just a child
Careless and so free to dream and any dream to live
Like feathers floating across a field carried by the wind
As a gentle breeze blows through the leaves shivering delightful gloom
Unlike flowers of springtime the disheveled autumn vibrance bloom
Leaves crackle beneath my feet along the skeleton tree path
Where I try to find my peace or a song to make me laugh
The air is so much crisper and also soothing when I breathe it in
Underneath a starry sky and brighter constellations of Heaven
Amidst the trail I pass a lovely couple holding hands
While their children run aside frolicking in a playful dance
An old man and his wife admire the view from a wooden bench 
With smiles on their face as if nostalgia is still their closest friend
Its these specific autumn affects that bring me sorrows and joy
Reminding me of all theses things Ive wanted as a man since I was a little boy 
Its times like these that I wish I wasn't always so alone
Because I would light an fire with my family and call it home

DISTURBED CREATURE- Am I

A poem wrote by me, based on Person who is a deserving icon but still struggling hard with his career life and addressed as disturbed creature.

DISTURBED CREATURE--> Am I ??       BY Mrs.Madhavi Suyog Pagare

Am I so insane, Am I so mad,
Dramatic mood of mine is so die hard.
Destroyed my peace, Shattering my dreams,
People call me as disturbed creature.
As like mounting the pain, attenuating the drain!!

Digesting my feelings lying inside me,
Strangely nobody cared, call me sick.
Teasing me lavishly and my heart is pricked,
Hurted me like hell when addressed me as stupid.
As like showering rain, missing on the lane!!

Time lapse in journey of life,
Can hamper anybody on its path.
When I see innate reflex of mine,
I always use to brightly shine.
Though possessing every job attributes of mine,
I never thought the authorities will ditch and hamper my career line.
Falsely acting bloody swine, making my image as fade as wine.
As like affecting harmonious divine, my soul was, as is transparently pristine!!

Destroying me and testing my patience, Never wanna give up.
Transformed deviations, wanna rightly screw up.
I wanna raise up, I wanna shake up.
I wanna wake up, Tranquilize my mind.
Unzip the professional life compressed by the culprits.
Wanna explore myself, driving the motivated heights of journey.
Lastly waiting for the optimistic opportunity.
Cuffing the suspect ,I wanna rejoice by my pattern of life!!

When I Die

When my life has finally left me and my last breath has been shed
And the silver cord is broken and my bodies firmly dead
I shall hover near the body, download the scenes of this past life 
Noting all minutest details rolling backwards past my eyes

I’ll store these scenes ‘til later when I can take the time to learn 
What the lessons have to teach me and help me to discern
How I treated other people, made them happy, made them sad
Examine all my actions, both the good and the bad

Three days later I’ll lose interest as my focus moves away
From the world that I just left behind, there is no need to stay
For a lifetime in the life of man to God is just a day
And my soul as God on the wheel of life must move along its way

I’ll take the download with me as I move into first heaven
It’s the first stage in the afterlife, in number there are seven
Here I’ll see and feel the good things that to others I have brought
And revel in the feelings of the kindness that I wrought

I will store these in my seed atom so in future lives I’ll know
They’re the things that I must multiply for my souls’ conscience to grow
For the conscience is the souls’ voice that guides you day by day
That still small voice that warns you in what you do and say

When that’s done my view will shift then to the things that I did bad
To the hurt I did to people that left them feeling sad
I will feel their pain intensely, ten times worse when in this field
For I’ll be purely spirit now with no flesh for a shield

These painful lessons will imprint upon my seed atom as well
In some religions we are told our soul’s in everlasting hell
In the stages of the afterlife, this is your punishment in heaven
This is the third and the most painful of the total seven

The Grim Reaper now has visited with his scythe so I will know
Through natures Law of Consequence I will reap what I did sow
He has shown me all my misdeeds and caused me many tears
And this purgatorial experience may last for twenty years

When my suffering soul recovers and the pain has died away
And I’ve incorporated the lessons to never act this way
In future lives I’ll be a better man from these lessons I have learned
One step closer to perfection that my growing soul has earned

Now I can sleep, Oh peaceful sleep, a state of heavenly rest
I’ll dream the dreams I love in life, of things I love the best
All desires that my soul has yearned, not a thing I can’t create
In the Great Silence of the spirit world to help me concentrate

The colors are much brighter, the scent of flowers more sublime
The senses are much sharper, there is no sense of time
I will see all other people as pure souls just like me
And I’ll know we’re all evolving to the bliss of eternity

I will hear the mystic music of the planets as they pass
Like a thousand singing angels, heavenly peace has come at last
Every planet sings its own song, we’ve grown deaf to this below
But in this super consciousness we’re in the eternal flow

I’ll be with my friends and family and others whom I love
The ones who left before me and currently live above
There they wait with arms wide open and rejoice when I arrive
In the fourth stage where I now live, it’s utter joy to be alive

I’ve incorporated my lessons, I now recall my goal
And my mind begins to focus on further growth of my soul
I must make further preparations and my vision starts to clear
I feel I must keep moving forward for all my works done here

I now have gone through five and six, there is just one more 
In years it’s been from birth to birth one hundred forty four
The time has come to move along and leave this place called heaven
Prepare for life in the physical world, I move to number seven

My soul has gathered the material, I now know what I must do
To make some more improvements in the places I need to
I must take another body, I must live another life
To grow and liquidate more karma though it means more pain and strife

I build an archetype of the body that in future I will form
When embodiment is offered, and I can be reborn
I will see the opportunities and be able to discern
The ideal embodiment for me when the right egg meets the sperm

I will hover near the fetus, influencing where I can
And I’ll have the power to make it be a woman or a man
I will help to build the body to suit the lessons I must learn
To overcome more issues so more advancement I can earn

When baby takes its first breath and my soul is taken in
With the imprint of my seed atoms that it has brought within
Now the babys’ atoms resonate to my seeds vibration rate
Making it the perfect body for my soul to habituate

The new body will be my new home, I will live a life anew
Gain experience, learn more lessons, through the things that I will do
I’ll apply the added knowledge that I learned in this past life
More evolved than in the last one, and cause me less pain and strife

This will happen just as often as required by the soul
As it pushes ever onward, pushing ever t’ward its goal
Of complete re-integration back from whence it came
To the universal soul of life no matter what its name

Nature is not personal, it does not seek revenge
If we mess it up we have the chance to do it all again
We arrived here by this process, nothing’s changed it’s still the same
But our souls have evolved immensely since we stepped into the game

We started out as fallen angels with no experience on this plane
We’ve grown to this by coming back again and again
Though we cannot remember for each conscious mind has died
The feelings in the soul remained in our subconscious mind

And so this is the story of the cycle of the soul
As it struggles through evolution on its way toward the goal
It’s this way for all unfailing, from natures law there’s no relief
All living things go through it, no matter their belief

The Wedding

Sometimes things are up,
And sometimes they are down,
Sometimes black is white, 
And sometimes it is brown.
All the rivers flowing,
Back to the sacred sea,
All the monkeys climbing,
Up the very same tree.
You think you know a lot,
Think you know it all,
But the autumn leaves are falling,
At the north wind's lonely call.
The thinking of the meaning,
The reasons lost and gone,
At last the place is ready, 
A vacant holy throne.
The emptiness that fill you,
Fills you from inside,
Is the treasure you are holding,
The bridegroom's holy bride.
And now the north wind's blowing,
Blowing down the Way,
And now we sit here waiting,
For the bridegroom's wedding day.

Last Kiss

Open your eyes to the ever turning skies 
I want to here with me through the night 
My heart yearns into your soul 
Burning as if newly lit coal 
I bravely submerg the embers 
That the time I have can be spent with you 
And I remember each kiss every moment 
I was caught in your love that for just this day I remember 
So what happened was a chance for your love 
A time that I kept in a locket tied with a kiss 
 I wanted you to feel, to love, to slumber 
And to awake in my arms with that times kept bliss 
I lay silient in an umber

The Message

I'm not the greatest of all-times, but when I'm done, I'll be an all time great in this lifetime of mine Like the late great who came before my time I will breed a new lifeline, that will breathe life like march of dimes My story lines, will bring truth life; like troops who fight Overseas, for rights of those who believe that death is life Now that ain't right! As the rich is getting richer, eating fillet me-non, while we barely feeding our appetite Night after night Survival has waged a war that gave us no choice but to battle and fight Although, we'll be all right They say we a dying breed, but that ain't right Instead we're the light to a lying greed That will enlighten life to a brand new seed A man of God indeed Freed from the Son that bleeds Like the summer breeze He's the sum that equals the amount of air I breathe The air that please A satisfaction like the birds and the bees My word's words are the keys That will fornicate with the mind and give birth to a seed A seed of social change, that'll change our social economy So shall our comradery That will bring comfort to a struggling society A synonym...similar to a civilization seeking for unity Unifying the physics of theory That seeks to explain the synopsis of a dying philosophy Similar to the Cosby X-cept my scrip-tic will speak more about our reality Like life's calamity And everything else in life that's destroying us systematically However, I've discovered a system That can mathematically destroy ignorancy And turn our state of mind intellectually I elect that He (God) selects me to be And be that man who may lead this community So that they (My Peoples) may commute with me En-route to a destination, destine towards our destiny Like we were destine to be We were meant to be "Great" like the late great that came before we. Because we are... The reflection where perfection gave birth to the definition of greatness Where great means Competent, Skilled, Well Informed, and Tremendous Our potentials are endless And only we not even the enemy can put an end to this So it's time we put a stop to this The biggest enemy of self And that's envy and jelousness Cause after this is Heaven or Hell and that's all there is A promised made sealed with a kiss Knowing this Is the next best thing since "In the beginning" In the first chapter of the first verse in Genesis!

Face Of Night

When night face appears:

  Hades erupts with the 
hammer of death,stiring 
the waters.
Lemures dashing forth 
and back preying on 
wandering souls-tell-tale 
odor pervading the 
atmosphere.
Resistance is like chasing 
shadows.
Shackles of bondage 
looming,even the blue-
blooded under chains 
and fetters.
   Howling winds 
harmonize with howls of 
night marmosets- 
creatures of doom.
Splattered blood spread 
like cancer: a norm of the 
day.
Mountains of carcasses 
caressing the sky.
  The world becomes 
scene of blood bath,
carnages mounting, 
screams perforating the 
atmosphere.
   Long ago,a human 
phoenix lived and died-lo 
he lives!
(Carpe diem)! He offers 
hands of goodwill with 
beaming smiles.

Something is being said

Something is being said

across the whole world.

Something is being said

for all to hear.


Something is  being spoken

for us to be awoken,



Something is giving us life

to beat all this strife,



Something is being loving

to heal our pain and sorrow,



Someone has given us a new tomorrow,

Something is being said,



He is saying take His hand

He is saying forget the trials for they take you far,

Far into a land where life is left unknown,

He is saying, I am life,I am the true vine,



take my hand and we will live in eternity for all time,

for all days and you will learn my awesome ways.

The Duchess Of Paradise

She's highly sophisticated and full of undefiled wisdom
Yet a crowned Duchess in a paradise kingdom
Quite a beautiful angel flying with black wings
Covered in gold jewelry and precious things
She dresses like the women of ancient Egyptian class
Her wealth is generous and her money grows like grass
She loves orange scented candles with dark room flame  
She rules thirty legions of soldiers and Bune is her name
Her comely warrior voice can wake and relocate the dead
Her armies of soldiers gather around the cemetery
She is brave and deserves a princessly crown on her head
Her facility of speech and flair for words is legendary
A beautiful queen to be treated with respect and honor
Instead of blasphemy,wanton abuse and fictional horror

Bravery

It's not a lesson to be taught
Or a skill to be acquired
It's the nudge to move forward
Open when the time is right
It's the spirit inside
God leading on the way
On the journey to discover
He is all you need
It's the courage to let go
Say yes instead of no
Reveal what you've been holding back
As Jesus takes the wheel
It's the realization that it doesn't matter
What others think of you
God leads you where you're meant to be
Just allow you to be you
It's the standing up to fear
Proclaiming "fear's not gonna win!"
The battle has been fought too long
Time to let the stalemate end
It's the inspiration you've been holding
For others and for yourself
The light we've been dimming
Rather than shining on His behalf
It's the spontaneity in the decision
To follow His call all the way
Discovering peace in being you
Wide open as the perfect creation you are
The world out there is brutal
But there's a Holy Man holding out His Hand
His bravery now is all we have
But His bravery of love is all we need
May God bless you!

FOREVERMORE

When I hear your name
My heart beats faster than usual
It's not that I am ashame
But It's just your name is too special..

Can't control the feelings
When I am with you
Can't stop smiling
When you hold me like you do

When you hug me then
I feel like I'm in heaven
You are a blessing from above
And you are the reason why I loved

I'll promise to love you FOREVERMORE..
And I will cherish you until the end of my borrowed life
And I will keep our precious memories as long as
we see each other in our next life..

DON'T WORRY - YOU'RE COVERED

Copyright © 2013
07/27/2013

Politicians' greed seems to hover
  Over our lives, a simmering cover

Separation of Church and State?
  Satan planned mankind's fate

As in the days of Noah, sin did hover
  Over their land like locusts do cover

The faithful do not fret what is hovering
  By HIS Blood, the Lord is still covering

Our leaders refuse to make a deal
  When enthralled by Satan's Will

Politics, and selfish greed
  Failing our Nation's need

Obama-Care, a change that's fair
  Or, struggling against Satan's lair?

But, ye faithful remember the heavens hover
  Till horns blow clearing clouds that do cover.

A sunny afternoon

One sunny afternoon

I looked out of my window
It was a sunny afternoon
Behind me on the radio
The softness of a jazz tune
Played so sweetly in my ears
A lovely serenade
And then this sight did catch my gaze
And everything did fade

For there, before my spell bound eyes
I saw this wondrous scene
A mauve hibiscus lighted up
So lovely and serene
Did sparkle like a million gems
Among the mauves and greens
Oh what glory, oh what joy
I felt within this scene.

Oh life is sweet, and life is grand
When seen with heart, and eye
So when this image came to me
My eyes began to cry
As all  my wonder asked of me
Where does it all come from?
So much beauty in this world
It just goes on and on.

In God's Hands

  I am malleable in God’s hands, 
No one can shape me like He can, 
He never gives me anything that I can’t handle, 
He always knows what He is doing, 
No one can compare to Him, 
He is the father I never had, 
I can truly trust, love, and honor Him, 
Because He made me, 
He loves me, 
And I love Him, 
I will never be able to put my heart into someone else’s hands with such trust!
Because He is love! 
And I am His.

Questioning Life

Forget! Regret not, for it all has intention...
To attempt comprehension leads to double block wall.
In searching your question, much more loss is gotten, 
Confusion, dismay a deeper dug hole.
Infinitely seeking you strive for some meaning, 
the truth is quite simple you are not sole at all! 
Infusion connection the union eternal, 
Is easy to grasp when knowledge of whole,
is truly encountered from deep within query
The meaning the truth the love of it all...
Once trouble & strife and struggle are missing,
The clear light of being shows beauty once more.
Accept what is given agree to the treaty.
Fight not with your fears, and answer your call.
Find substance in living, step over delusions. 
Regardless of meaning, life’s radiance will soar.
So use this awareness these words and this practice,
Come forth tall and sturdy, head high and recall..
When sad and when empty in need of intention,
No doubts I plead! No need to explore!
Emotions you hold are sensed by your siblings,   
Your waves of sensation your truth and your soul... 
Are parts of us all, we are all together we are all but one!
In oneness we’re whole!

The Glass Goddess

All around me
Great cities made of sand.
Green sky scrapers poke through the ground 
To thrive in life’s strict conditions
And melt away with the tide…

Great houses made of cards
Form lines, and tightrope walk existence,
Knowing that any moment, the wrong brick may fall
And buckle our world to its knees
As Mother Earth shouts Jenga! from the sidelines.

So while were here
We dance with the Glass Goddess 
Poised miles above reality,
Leaping over the heavens on our domino stilts-

We floor it in the sky
Living death in the fast lane, 
Seizing the day
Because any moment 
We could disappear 
Into

Heaven or Hell

Like a ticking time bomb,
I stayed in my shell.
Waiting to get out of this Hell--
That was my life.
Feeling alone in every corner,
I stayed isolated waiting for a shoulder.
Hoping someone would reach out to me,
Thinking everyone else had the key.
Till I realized that I was the door,
And the key was in me.

That's when I looked up for the first time,
And realized that the only fault was mine.
For I created my own misery,
And blamed others for what I did to me.
I picked my head up and walked tall,
And that's when I saw them all...

Everyone was like me.
Or should I say how I used to be.
Heads down with hand in my pockets,
Waiting for someone to open them up like lockets.
Thinking they too were alone in their Hell,
And that's why I have this story to tell...

Life can be a lonely place,
Until you look up--
And see the world for what it is,
An empty cup.
Waiting for you  to fill it with everyone else,
Not to stand alone in it like it's a prison cell.
For what's in that cup can beautiful and pleasant,
And instead of being your Hell,
It can be your Heaven.

An Ode to LIFE Part 1

An Ode To LIFE


As I lay my head down and start to fall asleep I see myself being carried off to a place and time the place of our Lords birth in Bethlehem of Judea

As in the Bible tells the story of His life and how he lived and died in that human seance and rose on the day He told of

I do not remember being here but I remember the story I was taught so many years ago

As I walk through the streets of Bethlehem I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am learning the story they telling is true

The writer writes of a jealous King  and his way of dealing with his people and of Mary and Joseph who came to Bethlehem to have a child

The story tells of the three wise men  who saw a star in the north and heard of a child  who was born to be the King of the Jews  and come to see and bring Him gifts 

An  angel from the Heavens above came to Mary and Joseph in a dream and told them they had to leave Bethlehem or King Herod would have their son killed 

So they left Bethlehem and went to Egypt and there they lived until King Herod no longer ruled

As I follow along in my dream I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am puzzled by the fact I understand each

I don’t understand why I’m going through this time but I know I must continue on this journey 

As I am pulling through a time where I reach the place of Jesus’ in  Nazareth of Galilee

As I watched Him grow and work in His father's shop I could see the thing in Him that were with me

As I walk along the streets and look around I hear the people talk of a child that speaks of wondrous love that’s all forgiving and of a Father in Heaven that’s loving and true.

Will We Know Him

Will We Know Him?

Will we know Him if He stood in front of us?
If He walked by us on the street?
Will we know Him?
If we have a chance to meet Him in our  lifetime?
In that split second that we meet Him?
Our eyes met for the first time?
Will we know Him?
Yes reading the moment we stood side by side?
Our smiles are very clear
Our heart jumps around
Yes we do know Him?
That look, and that feeling
When we know we've found our home
Yes we do know Him
Yes we know what to say to Him
As we walk away together
Yes we know Him as He knows us His children
We are finally together

My Sins

My Sins – Zamreen Zarook

Oh God you are so gracious,
Am a guy who have done since in capacious,
At times I have being as a carnivorous,
But it charged ages to identify as dangerous.

Since are being committed behind the screen,
Even it started at my thirteen,
Mirrors used to say that I am evergreen,
Whereas my since were always unseen.

In enormous number I have executed,
But for every count, high privacy was aborted,
Simply because of your blessings we are bracketed,
If not, we are already being quoted.

Oh God, I understood your kindness,
Here after I won’t commit since in others absence,
However much chances I get to access,
I will always have heaven as my address.

View from Heaven

View from Heaven
Looking back now is to look with a view from heaven. When you see a rainbow it’s an angel looking down at you. A small portal has opened with a view. 
The view is most spectacular unlike anything I could describe or ever dreamt would be. The rainbow is a wonderful gift for mankind. It’s to remind all of God’s promise yes; however you see when there has been no rain, it’s me or the other angels gazing and smiling down upon you!
The beauty of the stars and moon up close; you could never imagine in your wildest dreams. In heaven it’s a different view, nothing compares; it’s not what one would expect at all. The sun and clouds are the most beautiful of all to me, absolutely perfect in every way; like lying on cotton candy that’s not sticky and having a warm feeling from head to toe.
The sights and comforts are such that once in heaven you’ll never want to leave! Sounds that are so entirely pleasing and smells that warm your senses, it’s just amazing being in heaven. So look into a rainbow for a glimpse of heaven. It’s me looking through the portal; lovingly remembering you!

Memories Linger

Memories Linger
	Soft and sweet, so little and tender,
I pray again someday we’ll meet.	
Memories that seem so far away, replay in my mind again today.
Giggles sound as your tender touch is felt!
	Then and there to here and now prayers form;
bringing memories back into sight.
Soft and sweet, my little angel plays. 
Breathe it in; smells' baby soft from memories past, 
unfold and bloom!	
Until we meet again, memories forever linger of my little angel.

God Almighty

When I came to you I was broken and frail~Half my mind gone in despair

 Feeling so Low~Like mud on the ground~Wondering if my Joy would ever

 be found~Fighting and resisting at the very Start~then slowly you entered my heart

 Quietly and gently working insid my soul knowing just what you were doing to help me glow

You broke into my soul where I had been suffering the most you cleansed me

and entered me showing me what I needed to see, working endlessley on my soul

you cleansed me and made me once again whole. God almighty you never cease to

amaze me always by my side even when I'm at my worst, loving me endleslly and uncondionally..

You have opened my heart to the beauty again, the beauty of the clouds the beauty of your creations'

The beauty of the rain, the beauty of the thunder, the beauty most of all of your people.

Opened and vunerable I am to you always. Enter me and have me do your will in my life

help me to always follow you in every aspect of my mind, body, and soul with every ounce of me

Silently by my side help guide me in my ways so I do your ways and your will dear god almighty

Walking together down this journey in life nothing can go wrong with you by my side

Hold me and love me in this I pray guide me down the right roads along my way

I want you by my side for the rest of my life, no more going alone on this journey

I need you Lord God ALmighty to guide me ,Love me. and Hold me through my good and bad times..!

Carry My INK FATHER

Thank you for your grace, your mercy and everlasting love Father. Thank
you for giving me the strength to endure another day. Forgive me
for my sins I've committed. I come to the
realization that day-to-day my eyes will
face temptations. I'm lured by the 
beauties of envy, greed, anger,
jealousy, lust and fornication.
Saved I am, though not
perfect; but with your
tools, I pray to
overcome my
sinful fixations.
Right over wrong
indeed I stand;
it's majority of the
wrong that over
powers the right in
most situations.
Understandably,
it's all apart of the
flesh's gravitation for
a craving appetite for 
sinful sensations. Spiritually,
I refuse to become stagnant; mimicking
the gestures of still waters while observing
nature's sin waltz about society in a circular
motion across the nation. Therefore, I will testify
and witness to the lost souls being an inspiration. And 
taking heed to the one and only literature as it's a form of migration. One
place to another place, from this place to a better place; my final destination...!

My Church Forgot Me But Jesus Found Me



My Church Forgot Me… But Jesus Found Me! My first visit to church… I pulled up in my car. I noticed a sign; “we welcome you as you are!” I thought; “how do I come, if I’m not who I am?” I walked to the front door, and shook the usher’s hand. I was later introduced as a visitation guest. The church seemed to rather “happy and blessed.” As many of the people prayed and sang some songs. I went each Sunday and seemed to get along. Something happened and I couldn’t make it on Sunday. Nor could I make to the classes each Wednesday. No one ever called to ask if I was doing o.k. I even left a message and asked the church to pray. As the weeks went by, it seemed like I was forgotten. My whole life came “crashing down,” and hit bottom. It was in these moments, I cried out in pain. Wondering if anyone in heaven knew my name. A close relationship with Christ began to grow. God reached down from heaven knew my name. A close relationship with Christ began to grow. He reached down from heaven and healed my soul! A relationship with Christ is the most important thing. God is bigger than any church and cam do anything! If a church has forgotten you, let me give you a reminder. Christ is all you’ll need! He’s your provider! He can do what no church could ever do! He’ll always be your friend, and will never leave you! By Jim Pemberton

I'm a Muslim I'm not a Terrorist

I am a Muslim, I’m not a “terrorist”.
How can I be a terrorist
when I’m against all kinds of injustice.

I’m against every act of sin and evil.
I hate all kinds of crime and even loathe
what Adolf did to the innocent Jewish people.

I hate what God hates; He (Allah) hates oppression.
I’m against stealing, against taking away
people’s loved ones and belongings for no reason.

I’m against suicide bombings,
against racism, against ignorance,
against self-harm and even derision.

What God hates I hate and God (Allah) hates
oppression. I hate it too when people fight
for foolish nationalistic reasons.

I’m a Muslim; I follow the true religion
of mercy from Allah the Most Merciful
Who simply wants us to answer His Call
to believe in Just One -Just One God of all.

So don’t call me a “terrorist” when I clearly
don’t have a ‘mass destruction’ weapon
and my goal in life is to
be with our God (Allah) in Heaven.

Porn No More

I've watched the war from behind closed doors;
Eyes too glued to close.
And now knowing what's in store, there's porn no more.
God's love is the only hope we know.
We are forgiven because of the love that is Jesus.
We are saved because of the love that is Jesus.
We give our lives to the Father for we are His children and He loves us.
We are loved!
No matter what we've done, we are loved!
Confess and ask for forgiveness;
This is such a beautiful gift!
Thank You God!
Thank You Jesus!
You forgive me!
You save me!
You change me!
I am changed!
I am new!
I am renewed!
I am forgiven!
I am saved!
I am changed!
There's porn no more
For God's hope is in store!
There's porn no more
For God's love is the hope of the world!

The Risk of Choice

And not have faith in all He wants us to see.
But I don't want to risk my life being saved
Because of a choice I was refusing to make.

Beyond the Frontier

Where am I? Why is it dark?
This isn’t what I had in mind when I left the park…
Why isn’t the wind whispering…the songbirds singing?
All I remember is a telephone ringing…
A scream and a crash and a pain in my side…
Is this what happens after one’s died?
I don’t feel like myself, I feel wild and free,
Yet I’m cold and alone, 'stead of filled with glee.

My whole life I’ve studied, and pondered, and prayed,
Trying to fathom what would happen this day
But now that it’s here, I’m beginning to fear
Maybe the afterlife’s not what it appears…
It’s certainly not what I’ve been told by my preacher
Or my parents or brother or best friend or teacher…
Is it a bad thing, or is it good?
Maybe it’s just not quite understood...

While I was on Earth, I just couldn’t wait
To meet good St. Peter at the heavenly gate
And ask him a question or query or two
“What was my purpose?” “What good did I do?”
“What’s it all for?” “How does it all flow?”
“Can I have one more body, one more try, one more go?”
But where is the angel? Where is the gate? And
If this is Hell, then where is Ol’ Satan?
Am I a lost soul? Am I forgotten?
Am I to be left here until I am rotten?

Lo and behold! what, now, can this be?
Is this a wonderful spiritual epiphany?
Is this the magical feeling all souls receive
When they leave Earth? Oh! was I that naïve?
How could I have not seen the realism?
Why was I consumed in man-made idealism?
This is more wondrous than all I was taught
Oh, all the times I argued and fought
With others, ‘bout how their views were asinine
Now I see, theirs were just as wrong as mine!
Little I thought was actually correct!
How, why, did I let others petty beliefs infect
My untouched, my pure, my virgin mind?
I regret all the hours I self-tortured to find
That compared to what I see now, I was empty and blind…

Wait - - What is this that I see?
What is this gateway that is revealed unto me?

Now a door is opened to my immortal soul
I am expected now to enter my life’s final goal…
I am scared, intimidated, but still I am glad…
For the truth I have just seen is anything but bad.
This is the end of my journey, I’ve nothing to fear,
For now I am going Beyond the Frontier.

My Lord

A coral bay, a sandy beach,
Not too far, within my reach.
Palm trees sway in a cool nights breeze,
Alone with my God, all at ease.

Time alone, time to wander,
God's creation, so much to ponder.
Look up, look up, into deep black skies,
See His creation before your eyes.

The planets, some you cannot see,
Uncountable stars  just for you and me.
The Heavens He made by His own hand,
It's where you will find His throne will stand.

Standing here, on a beach,so small,
Hard to believe I have worth at all.
His wisdom, His love, compassion and grace,
Are mine for the asking as I run the race.

My prayers are asked every night and day,
They go heaven bound, there is never delay.
He is never too busy to hear my plea,
He is always ready, just for me.

He gave me a gift, more precious than gold,
He gave me a wife to have and to hold.
He gave me our daughters to love and adore,
He gave me His love, I could ask for no more.

His love He poured out, more than I ever deserved,
For in those days, Him, I did not serve.
I never gave thought to church or to God,
I know now the wrong path that I trod.

Looking back to my lifes beginning,
I never gave thought to if I was sinning,
I struggled through life, like many folk did,
Not knowing, from Him, that nothing was hid.

My past is not shameful, except for the fact,
That love for the Lord was all that I lacked.
He is Alpha, Omega, He is love everlasting,
I now know His love, it comes without asking.

He is Alpha, Omega, beginning and end,
He is love everlasting on Him I depend.
He is my Father, to Him do I cleave,
He is God Almighty, in Him, I believe.

In the twilight of years and so many a tear,
He has waited so long for me to see clear.
I'm ever so happy that He didn't pass by,
I hope that He knows that I'm His 'til I die.

Then, when this life is o'er, my last breath is spent,
I pray to my Lord to be heaven sent.
For since I found Jesus and He rescued me,
I long to be with Him for eternity.

My telephone booth

Always a little leak,
Dripping in my roof.
As the thunder and the lighting,
Storm around my telephone booth.
The tidal wave is rising,
To drown the children a sleep,
As we hammer in the nails,
Through his bleeding wrists and feet.
Some talk of joy and wonder,
Some talk of better days,
But I try to tell you something,
That makes you shy away.

The humanity inside you,
The innocent lamb and dove,
Have been eaten by the humans,
Covered in *****and mud.

Your soul you held within you,
Your children that you loved,
Have been eaten by the humans,
Who drank the holy blood.

The holy and the sacred,
That once we beheld in awe,
Is now the dancing laughter ,
Of the drunkard and the whore.

Always a little leak,
Dripping through my roof,
As the fishes go on swimming,
Around my telephone booth.

The Harvest

I would that your need
be to find the path straight
that your hearts rise above
and be harvested in glory

I would that the seed
Which was planted with love
be fruitful by faith
and be harvested in glory

I would from the start
that your minds be the same
as the standard you were made by
and was worthy of me even then

I would that your innermost parts
do awake and remember my name
and the hope therein gave I
of glory that transforms the children of men

Whereby understood, when this truth be told
will the doors of my trapped unlock
For the day of my wrath is ever so near
and the time of the harvest of glory

Seek the sheep that are without the fold
for the shepherd soon comes for his flock
Seek the lost that his voice when they hear
may come in and be harvested in glory

For behold I give sight
when the hearts for old reins make amends
for I would that you yet see my face
and great be the harvest of glory

For my flames scorch the night
till they destroy its end
till my waters of Life flow with grace
and you that are mine shall be harvested in glory...


Matt 24:30-31:  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
                          and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the
                          Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great
                          glory. And he shall send his angels with a sound of a trumpet,
                          and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds,
                          from one end of heaven to the other

Armageddon

Flames roared through the nights sky. 
A glimpse of blue still protruded through the flames. 
The heat warmed the mortals below. 
They believed that this was a great night. 
The sky emulated a beautiful red color. 
The color was extraordinary with remnants of blue. 
They believed that they were all safe. 
They were not nearly as safe. 
They were witnessing Armageddon. 
The war between good and evil. 
For no one is safe until judgment day. 
That is the day when the sky will forever remain blue. 
The birds will sing a tune. 
The flowers will bloom. 
That will be the day. 
The day when we will all be ok.

Jesus Paid It All


Jesus’ death paid it all!
What have you given in return?
His death on the cross… 
Was from his love and concern!

His life for yours… On Calvary… 
 Has been paid.
His offer of eternal life,
 has been made!

Through God’s word,
 he’s been talking!
And stands at your hearts door… 
 patiently knocking!

Won’t you invite him in?  As your guest?
Then, your life will be totally blessed!

He can bring health and
 healing to your bones!
He can bring his love to
 your family and home!

“Come unto me.” Is the 
  the master’s call.
Won’t you come to him now?
  One and all?

He’s here right now! 
 In this very place…
And extends to you his 
mercy and grace.

Won’t you accept him today?
He loves you more than words can say!

For you will feel his presence in your life,

Central Park Looks Beautiful When You Are In Love

Central Park looks Beautiful When you’re In Love


Central Park without the gates of heaven screens;
     It’s heavenly, a poet daring to dream
  Harps and golden crowns of evenly bliss paradise

  Twilight, nylons and panels in the park;
  Where Lover dreams come true with sparks;

Behold the beauty, behold a lover.
Poetic, artistic, romantic, trees and sky liners 
Central Park the gates of heaven in clear view;

 It’s heavenly yet powerful; Poets dreams 
Cristal, Ruby, Diamond, Sapphire Pearl or gold
 Or just chilling its tares amongst the weeds
Strolling or experiencing it’s where lovers meet;
Colorful hot air balloons circle the park
 Bollywood again and again after dark

The good heart



Heaven and earth bares me a witness
Only heaven and earth bares me a witness
That righteousness is greatness


Kings and queen might be ignorant
But I careless
I am the son of God
The father of the fatherless


Cloth in apparel of faithfulness
Washed in the blood of  kindness
Only heaven and earth bares me a witness
For that is greatness



Let mankind deny me
But this does not change me
Ye men of vain imagination
Who do not like good direction



Why won’t you perish in your illusion?
You harden your heart
And will not listen to my instruction


Ye heart of fools
Who should be instructed with whips
You flattering lips
Your evil deeds will end soon



Like never before
Ye shall be no more
Surly the material you trust
Will not last
They will all go to the dust

Heaven on Earth

Like a ticking time bomb,
I stayed in my shell.
Waiting to get out of this hell that was my life.

Feeling alone in every corner,
I stayed isolated,
Waiting for a shoulder.
Hoping someone would reach out to me,
Thinking everyone else had the key.
Till I realized that I was the door,
And the key was in me.

And that's when I looked up for the first time,
And realized that the only fault was mine.
For I created my own misery,
And blamed others for what I did to me.

I picked my head up and walked tall,
And that's when I saw them all.
Everyone was like me,
Or should I say how I used to be.
Heads down with hands in their pockets,
Waiting for someone to open them up like lockets.
Thinking they to were alone in their hell--
And that's why I have this story to tell...

Life can be a lonely place,
Until you look up.
And see the world for what it is...
An empty cup.
Waiting for you to fill it with everyone else,
Not to stand alone in it like a prison cell.
For what's in that cup can be beautiful and pleasant,
And instead of being your hell--
It can be your heaven.

On the beauty of the river

On the beauty of the river

Oh, the beauty of that river!
It’s like I’ve never seen
Just looking from my chalet door
Oh, what a lovely scene
On this cool morn the silent river
Reflects the many hues
As the sun shines down on the Tingle threes
Creating wondrous views

No artist could have painted better
That river shines so bright
As sparling gems of wondrous power
Do give my eyes delight
And greens and blues, and misty hues
Shone out in mystic power
A magic glow within my heart
Does turn into a flower.

As little wrens of gentle blue
Do twitter in the grass
Two ducks sit down here by my feet
And as the moments pass
I thrill them with a simple tune
As that river flows on by
To touch my heart with a gentle tug
As soul, with joy does cry

Listen to the buzzing, in your ears,
Listen to the humming, of your fears,
Listen to the baby, crying inside,
Listen to the pleading, in your lover's eyes.
Listen to the music, you have never played,
Listen to the sinner, who's never been saved.
Listen to the empty, silence of your mind,
Listen to the whispers, of man kind.
Listen to the never, heard nor seen,
Listen to the listener, who has never been.
Listen to the monkey, you know you really are,
Listen to the wise man, who's never been that far.
Listen to the dying, crying man,
Listen to the bottle, buried in the sand.
Listen to meaning, you never really meant,
Listen to the letter, you never really sent.
Listen to the lovers, who loved another one,
Listen to the brothers, torturing their mum.
Listen to the noisy, who never say a thing,
Listen to the silent, crying deep within.
Listen to the never, ever really said,
Listen to the dead man, laying in his bed.
Listen to the flying, dying man,
Listen to the solid, only made of sand,
Listen to the night time, they told you that was day,
Listen to the meaning, they stole an took away.
Listen to the singer, who never made a sound,
Listen to the thunder, in the lightning cloud.
Listen to the voices, you never hear within,
Listen to the last train's whistle, whistling.

The Canvas of Night


The Canvas of Night


Stars like sprinkled sugar,
lay strewn across the canvas of night,


enthralled by the wonder of the cosmos,
my dreams take to the heavens in effervescent flight,


I bathe in the beauty, soaked in sublime delight,
absorbed in moments of bliss, transfixed by the serene sight.




Stars like sprinkled sugar,
lay strewn across the canvas of night,


and my being is infused with feelings of hope,


for even in darkness  I find the sprinkled sugar of hope's light.




note: special thanks to one of my heroes, the late Dr. Carl Sagan, for making science accessible to younger me, many, many moons ago.

Heaven's Doorway

I have vanished into portals of eternal light.lifted by pulchritudinous beams of mighty wisdom.Granted a wind lifted seat,made with yellow light.A cloud lifted palace, crowned by benign angels.With aggressively shimmering chips of gems ,stuck submissively and obedient  to their wings.Angels blowing a charmed horn, summoning the unknown. Before me, a carpet made of water and gold.A all powerful voice says,step forth.Come home.One of the few eternally blessed.Guardian angels with faces of light transported me beyond the invisible gates. I felt free.Free from burden. Free from pain. Free from breathing. Feeling whole and younger than before. I was taken for a tour,through heaven. Many were crowned with light. Many sat  on thrones. The floors was invisible. The atmosphere divine, with a sublime shine. Joyful sounds carried along the air, which I never inhaled. I looked at my chess and it shined with a mixture of hues. I was confused, resting my hand over this luminous light. Through my hand it still shined bright. In this palace there was no night. No fight. No blight. No freight. No malice in this holy. No envy. No greed. No negative bound entity's. All equally shining. Smiles are handed out more than food on earth. We are forever full here. No hunger in heaven.A place were people speak every language.More smiles adding to the ineffable decor. Amidst the almighty master we live forever more. Aloof I visualized my grandmother. She smiled at me. Her dress was maid of honeycomb and butterflies that still lived. She was crowned with lilies,rose peddles and electric. Her feet was  bare. She is sitting in a rocking chair. The last time she seen me, my face was full of tears,as I rubbed my nimble fingers on her pink tomb. She hovers from her rocking chair and said I am glad you could make it here. She says do you see how far prayer could get you. I said yes, I told you I would never forget you. Hugging my family members I never met on earth. Last but not least, I was hugged by my wife. We was bonded with eons of blinding light,enough to blind the humans sight. We are immortals drifting through sacred heavenly portals, reserved for married couples. We was surrounded by a red and pink mist, as she placed on my lips a heavenly and eternal kiss. Baby angels drew close playing the harp with holy tunes. A powerful voice said, love is heaven and heaven is in the two of you...enjoy eternal love....For you are eternally blessed......In heaven we drift.....

Gift Of Mortality

An earthly existence
A universe beyond my minds, comprehension
I die
I rise
Life lessons reviewed
Homeward bound
I am not lost, after all!
I am a willing participant
Serving, the Father, of all creation
His son combined, ‘producing life’ as we know it
Representing them, in everything I do
I am nothing, without Love!
My heart full of faith, loyal service I give
Learning how to unconditionally serve, as the Father unconditionally, loves me
Worshipping our Divine Creator’s existence
Choosing to live, moment to moment
Being as one with ‘Our Universal Father’
No physical permanency
My physicality, disappearing
My mortality existence, I let go of
Death temporary
My spirit alive!
Relief, Peace
‘I am only passing through!’
A unique, experience of mortality 
A gift, I am blessed to experience, to live!

Where Wild Violets Grow

Where Wild Violets Grow

Scribbling these verses,
caressing your bare back,
simple rhymes,
flowing from my fingertips.


Scribbling verses,
sprinkling odes to fragrant promises,
your smile lightens the burdens,
off my heavy heart.


Scribbling verses,
soaked in countless kisses,
the moonlight waltzing on your skin.


Scribbling verses,
feeling you,
your love never ceases to flow,


through the streams of my mind,
to a place of our own,
where wild violets grow

A LETTER FROM HEAVEN

A LETTER FROM HEAVEN


As I was mowing my grass  and thinking how beautiful it was today. 
All of a sudden I heard a voice say it is beautiful here too.
As I looked around I saw nothing, but with a familiar giggle she then said “hey I am talking to you”
Shirley talking to me that could not be.
She giggled again and said “yes it is true this a letter from heaven I am sending you.” 

Tell them I am sending a sign so they will know I am safe and happy.
They will have seen it already if not then soon.

What a beautiful site I have to view, fields of sunflowers all in bloom and roses of ever color hue.
Chuck and Mom and Daddy are here and the rest of the family too.
You should be my angel Debbie in her robe of white and eyes of blue.
Peace and love abound 
Jesus gave me passage safely through and now I am brand new.
I will be waiting for you here with my arms stretched out to embrace you but stay there awhile it isn’t time, your journey is not through.
Love and Peace I send to you. Kisses from heaven because I Love You.

The mustard seed

A mustard seed

Our savior told a story
In his usual way
He tried to make folk understand
As he did on many a day.
He said with voice all soft and calm
“What be it like? God’s heaven
What story can I use today
How can I tell you then?”

“It be like what happens then
When a mustard seed
Is planted there beneath the soil
It be so small indeed
“And yet” he said “once it be planted
So large the tree does grow
And spreads its branches all around
Gives shade where birds can go”

Our Lord, he used these stories
When he did talk to folk
And all that then could understand
They gained from words he spoke
He told folk naught without these stories
Yet to his twelve disciples
He explained then everything
To them he told it all.

what God called me to do

Lord you came from heaven to save us from hell,
Among us sinners you chose to dwell,
To give us eternal life you gave your own,
To glorify your father who’s on his throne,
You took the sin of the world upon your shoulder,
Yet our burning desire for you grew colder,
They spit on you, beat you and placed thorns upon your head,
Yet you still loved us when you were dead,
Your love is deeper than the ocean you yourself created,
Love so true because you did exactly what you stated,
Rose again on the third day with complete satisfactory,
You gave us salvation completely for free.


Just so you all know were living in the last days,
So I say to you my friend that you should change your bad ways,
When Jesus comes for the saints the wicked man stays,
Stuck here on earth to suffer through earth’s tribulation faze,
God changes anyone murders, thieves and gays,
If you want to get to heaven just do what the bible says!!!


Being afraid to say I’m a Christian is a thing of the past,
Because now I realize God’s love for me forever lasts,
Being a Christian doesn’t make me shrink or less of a man,
There for I don’t care what you think because I’m a part of Gods plan.
No I’m not perfect yes I do wrong but I know how to repent and keep my faith.
And I ask that you do the same and repent before it’s too late.

Vanity

Vanity Upon Vanity

Morning arrives...
Evening takes over
Can't the day stops changing?

Mother born you...
You gave birth to us
Where are your ancestors?

Graveyard here calls...
Your family now run
Why do they stop to love?

The Son

I was once kissed by the sun
Caressed in oils my breasts bathed free
like growth in my womb
kissing the moon
Capturing my true essence
unmasked, plain, pure

Naked in love my insecurities 
gave birth to my esteem
But then I became free 
from the taunting and ridicule of 
socieity's template of me
by adopting a new personality
One that reflects the real me

I like poetry I like to sing
I understand my spiritual need
I like love
I like the breeze
I like rhythm and passion
and long lasting nights of 
random acts of sensual moments that 
awaken parts of me previously repressed
The love I feel  is so unrest

I was once kissed by the sun
It's power gave me light and enabled my writing to become
spoken words
leaving footprints on the ink in my pen
Some of thoughts escaped through actions of sin
Unspoken words just thrown away 
Never spoken, or written again

Awakened by the sun 
all drenched in it's heat
Praising it's soure of power 
and embracing humility
Giving what I have to give
Learned to let go it's easier to forgive
We strive for riches but lest we forget
the richness of the sun
Each day be thankful for his son

Jesus Paid the Sacrifice

Jesus Paid The Sacrifice! Jesus sacrificed his life for you and me! So we can be with him for all eternity! His life for ours… a ransom was paid IN FULL, This is why I I love HIM so! Upon his head were placed the crown of thorns, Enduring so much shame and scorn. The blood from his body as it began to flow! The pain inside his body, Began to grow! The nails placed in his feet and hands, The pain he went through is hard to understand. His life for ours, is what he gave! His life for ours… Is what he did trade! By Jim Pemberton

Together we belong

When I found my true path 
I remember the many wounds
That healed in my heart
And all because I found you.
And in my dream, I could dance
Upon white cotton clouds
In heaven's romance.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.

Your love and warmth 
Help me get through the days
When heavy storms 
And rough trail threatens my faith
And I find that you've carried me all along
Until heaven becomes our home.


As I walked up my path
Found thorn filled, I found the truth,
That deepened the love in my heart
That brought me even closer to you.
And through the tears, in the sweet breeze
Of your loving embrace
I found grace.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.

Your love and warmth
Helps me get through the days
When heavy storms
And rough trail threatens my faith
And I find that you've carried me all along
Until heaven becomes our home.

And in my dream, I could dance
Upon white cotton clouds
In heaven's romance.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
And through the tears, in the sweet breeze
Of your loving embrace
I found grace.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
Together we are where we belong.

God's Way

I see rays of sunlight
beaming down from Heaven above,
I wonder if that's God's way
of showing His love?

I see a beautiful flower
washed in rain from Heaven above,
I wonder if that's God's way
of showing His love?

I see a towering tree
touching a cloud from Heaven above,
I wonder if that's God's way
of showing His love?

I see a tumbling waterfall
cascading down from Heaven above,
I wonder if that's God's way 
of showing His love?

I see the precious children
with innocence from Heaven above,
I wonder if that's God's way
of showing His love?

I see an embracing couple
smiling from Heaven above,
I wonder if that's God's way
of showing His love?

I see all God's creations
living from Heaven above,
I wonder if that's God's way 
of showing His love?

I see in the mirror
reflecting back from Heaven above,
I wonder if that's God's way
of showing me His love?

Sometimes

Sometimes there is silence,
Sometimes there are words,
Sometimes there is meaning,
Sometimes it's absurd.
Sometimes you are near me,
Sometimes you are far,
Sometimes there is darkness,
Sometimes guided by a star.
Sometimes we are up and 
Sometimes we are down,
Sometimes we are slaves,
That wear a holy crown.
Sometimes we are arrogant,
Sometimes we are proud,
Sometimes we are someone,
Lost in the faceless crowd.
Sometimes we are rich and 
Sometimes we are poor,
Sometimes we are angels,
Scratching at the door.
Sometimes I'm living and 
Sometimes I am dead,
Sometimes there is no thoughts
Turning in my head.
Sometimes looking forwards,
Sometimes looking back,
The circle still unbroken,
The train still on the track.
Sometimes we are caught and
Sometimes we are free,
But we always come back praying,
Under this olive tree.

What Do We Expect As We Seek to Remove God

What Do We Expect, As We Seek to Remove God? As so many people are seeking God’s removal… It’s like anything from him, we’ve given a refusal! Many have tried to ban just the reading of his word! There’s so much truth, just waiting to be heard! Many anti-God societies have quickly formed! Even the ten commandments, are often scorned! We’ve built large cities, many schools, and homes! But when it comes to God, we’ve often left him alone! One can try their best to push God back in the corner! But if you do, things in your life will get “warmer!” The pleasures and truth you seek, will come to an end! And then eternity without God, will just begin! You’ll wish you chose to live for God, that eventful day! You’ll wish that you took the time to study and pray! It’s the word of God that you need to study and read! God knows all about you! And knows your needs! He deserves all of your praise and full attention! We need to seek him, for much needed direction! Please come dear Lord, and cleanse us within! May we humbly confess our faults and sins! We need YOU much more, than words can say! Please be the God we serve! May we start TODAY! By Jim Pemberton

OF a Tree, Thee, and an Angel's Fee

Force feed me the taste of your skin

‘You will have to break my chastity belt wide open now
for I have sold myself into silent slavery to this ….our universal broken heart

even you will have to try hard……to save me now

I cannot recall your sounds…your hand motions 
as they devoured the subtle softness of me 
drew round my curvaceous places in curling ownership
intimacies’ sweetest embrace 

But too…you move to me 
with a ferocity that mowed the grass down  to a short golf course length 
from the living room table where you drew it happening… a hundred years ago

The length of your hair too has been a subject of much debate 
Love
that surging heavenly song...that told our story so well
 
like that movie from long ago about the girl who cut off and sold her hair to buy her love a golden watch fob and chain …the one who sold his golden watch to buy her a beautiful clip pin for her gorgeous long hair 
………………………………..you see how this goes …with true love

We cut off our noses and then turn backs on our faces 
and on each other on Facebook 

Itself the enemy…where only devils and the luckiest of angels spread


Tread on me beloved!
till I am awakened 
to our lips 
 which just now in writing I suddenly can feel meeting again

taste 
smell 
the salted brine of your pure water and sometimes beer soaked self

Is it me you feared 
as you said Good bye?

How little you know me 

like the formation of the first ever green tree grows up one limb at a time 
from a base long song of deep roots and strong center...so beautiful the Hosts stagger before its creation ….Halleluiah
The limbs sprouting forth like the wings bursting out of the flesh of the first angel 
who died in agony as they were formed….exploding from his shoulders
moving her hair aside as the arch of wing thrust like white tree limb from the goodness within
and the reincarnation of true kindness was born to the conscious of itself

so my love knows no limit 
my soul no separation
and my being no longing

Within

The joys of flesh, a smile to wreath the maid of morn
an inner world to project out, of holy chi we’re formed.

No need to cling like over ripe fruit to a heaven far above,
We we’re made of silver stardust and we were made from love.

Look not to moon or sun to see, look deep to questing heart,
hug the night with outstretched arms, the dark’s another part.

Gifted are we with all we need, this is no metaphor,
we have a heaven here on earth, yet still we ask for more.

Be not the spoiled and soiled child tired of his toys
mature, grow up, grow inward, see all your heavenly joys!

Sun and Moon

God is perfect in all things he creates
shining his love from the very first day
The sun and the moon he set up high 
they pour light to be our guide
Gods light he puts in my heart 
without him I wouldn't feel whole
When he returns all see his face gleam bright 
coming to carry us to our home on high
I can only imagine what heaven will be
the glorious colors, lights, and souls to meet
Sun and moon no more needed
The Almighty and Jesus Christ is the glow that will be

Soundless Sleep

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Will God accept me and want to keep?

Will my kingdom of glory have a warm soothing touch?
Will my body be cold, my spirit be hushed?

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Wil God accept me and want to keep?

Will Jesus be crying,begging for my salvation?
Will my heart have scorn and reject His invitation?

Will I enter gates of paradise onto God`s throne?
Wil I turn away shamefully and die alone?

Will my rest in heaven be a soundless sleep?
Will God accept me and want to keep?

Will I repent and cleanse my sinful being?
Will I continue to flee from "Gods presence" not seeing?

My God and savior awaits my final toll,
His patience caresses my newly saved soul.

My rest in heaven will not be a sound sleep.
My God will awake me.
My soul He shall keep.

Africa III

Heart pounding
Nervous feeling
Overwhelming
Deep breath to shake it
Cold chill slivers down fast

Beating against cage of heart
Cage of body
Cage of soul
Legs begging to run
Heart aching to be free
Truth to self 
aching to be seen

Sweet scent of dry savannah plains
Sharp smell of thorny veins
The aroma of Africa surrounds
Scents sights sounds 
In these home is found

Frustration mounts 
Captured leopard
Bound

Snarling at every motion made
Scared but defiant
Blinded by fear and rage

Paws long for endless journeys
On paths walked centuries ago
For elegance in element
A space all her own
Where earth still bleeds red on horizon
Morning and night
Continuing the endless fight

Fight for borderless freedom
Everlasting sight
The pale yellow green eyes
Dismays the truth inside
But tell the story
Of wild soul
Story to unfold

The Globe of Harmony

There's a planet I believe to be
The globe of harmony

It’s beyond our capability to explore
Vibrating deep in the Universe's core

The luminous colours and pulsating force
Keeps the Universe on steady course

By emitting an energy surge filled potion
Through the power of rhythmic motion

And with each wave of energy brings
The right balance to all things

There’s a planet I believe to be
A gift from the Almighty.

Treasures of your soul


Life is Harsh, Life is good
Only the few of the proud 
Those men that stand for a great nation
Their life at the stake
So rough and sharp
Every day is another challenge 
For them and for all
Freedom we all hope
But sometimes feel lost
Never give up that spark 
Hope don’t give it up for a price 
And when I see these great men and woman
Risk their life for a single child lost
With guns all around and wars of hate
I feel blessed as my country truly stands brave
A child is a gift of new life and hope
As I see the children in their arms saved at last
Only then will I ever know true courage
This is a path we should always cherish and follow
When the flame burns out nothing is left but stay strong
So please don’t shed a tear I am right here
By your side always and forever  
Our country stands not alone, but as one
Heart filled with love

All I Need Is You

I don't need any money,
I don't need fancy shoes.
I don't need to buy happiness, 
'Cause all I need is You.

I don't need expensive clothes,
I don't need things to choose.
I don't need five-star meals,
'Cause all I need is You.

I'm smiling here so wide;
I feel like I'm brand new.
Today is the start of something big
'Cause all I need is You.

My soul is eternally fulfilled;
My heart is being led through.
I don't need anything else,
'Cause all I need is You.

A blanket of stardust

                  A Blanket Of Stardust
A blanket of stardust sprinkles all over the frosted covered snow,
That seems to sparkle and give an enormous brightful glow.
The stardust sprinkles all over my smiling face,
As I look up to heaven that wonderful amazing place.
As I twirl and dance watching the stardust come alive,
I see the pixie's come down,as they arrive.
With little tiny wings that beat so fast,
They come from the future and the long forgotten  past.
A blanket of stardust that's what they are made of,
Sent from heaven,to spread the stardust with amazing love.
A blanket from heaven from god's healing hands,
To watch the sprinkles fall,as god commands.

I Rejoice In Knowing God

I Rejoice In Knowing God!

I will cry out to God with my voice!
I take safety in him and rejoice!
I shall seek him in the day of trouble!
He’ll pick me up, when I stumble!
I know that he listens, and is always there!
I shall seek each day, alone in prayer!
I shall remember the Lord’s faithful deeds!
He gives me strength, and meets my needs!
I meditate on his words, and wonders performed!
He picks me up, when I feel defeated and scorned!
He is God and shines with an awesome brightness!
He brings everlasting love, peace and kindness!
Behold!  He is God!  His power is demonstrated!
His beauty among the heavens, has been demonstrated!
He is God!  And shall forever reign supreme!
He is my God!  My righteousness and everything!

Life found in a Dream

Life found in a Dream 
Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
                                     This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. Many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasure that are a wonder to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you can find rest, for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago prepare The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all a long time ago and I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please live inside of me until the end. I sow the seeds and when the harvest comes you will know where it can from. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?

The Name Above Every Name

The Name Above Every Name “ 9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil 2:9-11 NIV Christ took the nature of a servant And was created in human likeness. He humbled himself before all; His obedience provided our righteousness. God exalted His humble Son And gave Him The Name Above Every Name. At this name every knee will bow, In heaven and on earth His praise proclaim. Every tongue will confess That Jesus Christ is Lord of all. He glorified the Father above And harkened death’s necessary call. He made us children of God; Changed from slaves to heirs instead. The Name Above Every Name— The lamb of sacrifice to wed. The Name Above Every Name Is upon the lips of His faithful servants, Not through force but love alone; The Holy Spirit's implants. We should be so grateful, That Christ died for us to be saved; That He rose again from death’s pit; Eternity on our hearts engraved. The Name Above Every Name Is to be glorified for all time. Let’s worship Christ and give him thanks, For His love so heavenly divine. Let us shine like stars in the evening sky, So that all who look up will see, The Name Above Every Name, To be worshiped for eternity!

The Silk Demon

These people make me sick 
These false prophets
These religious money pits 
These well dressed demons of deception 
Nothing but
Con artists
Liars 
Purveyors of pure sacrilege
Pretending to offer you salvation 
Offering you the comfort of the lord 
For a price 
Selling you a seat in heaven 
The more you pay the better your accommodations
Religious travel agents
Without their blessing 
You’re doomed to be left behind 
You wont get into heaven 
Without your donation 

I myself believe in religion 
Support all religions 
They may be different in their views and customs 
But the end goal is all the same 
Eternal peace 

But these people are different 
They to, 
Want peace… 
Your piece 
My piece 
And anyone else’s piece they can get 
Their goal is simple 

Fleece the flock 
Sell them promise 
Sell them an eternal ticket 
Guarantee them eternal bliss 
For a price 

Sell them anointed hankies
And blessed books 
Promise them wonderful lives
With their religious looks 

They are the one-armed bandits of the new age 
With a bible in one hand and a credit card machine in the other 

We take Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover  
But no checks please 
We need your “prayer” right now 
Not in 7-10 days 

These people make me sick 
There are so many of them 
Saying they represent God 

Flashing 800 numbers 
Requesting your “prayers” 
Which will only be “answered” 
As long as credit card is valid 

Are people that dumb?
I mean really that naïve?
Do they really believe? 
The cheap suits 
Silk ties 
And piss poor acting of sincerity and caring
Do they not see the obvious? 
Are they truly blind? 
Do they want to be spiritually slaughtered? 

Do they not remember the one very important rule?

You never have to pay to pray!

All God has ever asked of anyone is their faith 
Time, is your most valuable asset
It is what you have the least of in life 

And this is what you pay to God 
Your time devoted to him and your faith in him 

Wake up, before it’s to late 
You don’t have much time left 
Spend it wisely 
Spend it on God

The Heart Of The Ocean

Prime Mover

Like the seraphs whose wings unfold,
Christ's light and glory goes not untold;
as the love of his humble grace
moves inside me all time and space,

as the planets orbit heaven's sun
and encircle it one by one--
so, too, am I caught in his sway,
beloved of him from day to day.

Through hosts of astral dimension
God's angels fix their attention
with expectancy and burning pause
amidst the universe's First Cause.

He, the one true Incarnation  
that begets cosmic causation,
resolves the Infinite Regress
from the pre-Socratics' egress

with his omniscient wisdom
and the archives of his kingdom
where all can come and read and know
what miracles he'll yet bestow.

Juliet's Plea

~“Tis torture, and not mercy. Heaven is here
Where Juliet lives, and every cat and dog
And little mouse, every unworthy thing,
Live here in heaven and may look on her,
But Romeo may not."
- William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, 3.3

Juliet's Plea

Dost thou deem, heav'n only rises with the corpse
upon the last sweet breathe of virgin light
as face dost pale to pearl and roses leave my lips tonight
Romeo, my living eyes knew naught your purpose.

In sooth, I thought thee dead on that black night
and so, no other earthly joy could stay my heart
but heav'ns had we all, before this sorry plight
pray pardon love, I would nay have thee depart.

Abide, abide my love, my Romeo, alas...
by your leave, I hold St. Peter’s gate op’ for thee
And verily, I wait for time is naught in death 
and thee, my love, my Lord, are all to me. 

*Their love and their deaths were a scandel.

8:15 To Freedom

THE WINDS OF FREEDOM

Do you feel the winds of freedom blowing
Do you hear the whispers from heaven above
Do you see the wave of the Kingdom growing
Ready to pour out Fathers love
Do you know the chains have finally broken
That control is running out the door
The fulfillment of the promises spoken
Many things will happen that have not happened before
Hearts that were stone turning to flesh
Many more miracles will be seen
The door to heaven much wider open
Open far wider that it’s ever been
Glory pouring forth like liquid gold
The truth being spoken 
By those who are bold
Their mouths being filled 
By the Lion who roars
They’re on the mountain so high
 Where the eagles soar
Do you feel the winds of freedom blowing
Do you hear the whispers from heaven above
Do you see the wave of the Kingdom growing
Ready to pour out Fathers love

The Blinds and Pane

Through the dark still summer's night,
'bove waves of sea-green foam,
speeds a beam of dim moonlight
that's left its lunar home...
Easily it makes its way,
as nature was intending,
through Heaven's gate
its path is straight,
not circular or bending.
Between the stars, and fields of grain
it sets the world a glow,
as it slips between the blinds and pane
of a single house below...
It lands upon a snuggled pair,
for its path was true (and chosen).
A kiss they share, their bodies bare
they're lovers interwoven...

A New Dawn

A New Dawn in His Glory
  foretold in a biblical story

Coming for those preparing
  skyward we will be starring

Like descending parachutes
  sounds of trumpets and flutes

Captivating our hearts
  giving us a new start

A New Dawn is coming 
  listen, nature is humming

Idelology clashing blows
  a tale between 2 foes

Revelations foretold a day
  when more begin to pray

World events getting crazier
  humanity's future  hazier

Waiting on ONE to stop this mess
  or, were we just another lab test?

SECOND COMING

      SECOND COMING
Yours in the blood that set us free
we come in honor as it be
to bind in love straight from the lovers heart
the one called Christ the thief has torn apart,
and hoped that nevermore they'd see.

At mid of night when sings the song
about the right and of the wrong
we enter into dreams, and through your breast,
straight to your heart where life meets ev'ry test
and keeps you living faint and strong

and begs out for His loving hand
just as all time has ever planned
to Save each soul in Jesus for the day
His swift return will sweep us all away
where ev'ryone will understand.

Christ Stepped Down From His Heavenly Throne

Christ Stepped Down From His Heavenly Throne! Christ stepped down, from his heavenly throne. He came to earth… For 33 years, he called it his home! His mission had one purpose and desire in mind! He was to one day, be a sacrifice for mankind! He taught and gave us his words, powerfully spoken! He knew that one day, his body would be broken! He desired that all, would one day, come to know him! Because of his resurrection, all can receive him! He’s alive today! And reigns from heaven above! And desires to touch us, with his endless love! Won’t you humbly come, and accept what he’s given? And experience the power, of being forgiven! This can be your moment! This can be YOUR day! He loves you much more, than words can say! All honor and praise, to Christ Jesus, our king! You are our righteousness! Our everything! By Jim Pemberton

Life's Difficult Situations


Life can bring many difficult situations!
Often, there’s really no explanation!

No matter how smart or how wise,
Things can take us totally by surprise!

We can often find our life off course.
Many times, being driven by a “dark force.”

I know that it’s hard to know what to do.
Especially with what you
 may be going through!

I can’t think of all the right words to say…
To help you make it through another day!

But there’s someone, I can ask you to turn to!
He loves and is most concerned about you!

His name is Jesus!  The almighty God is he!
He’s committed to you now!  And for eternity!

He’s the one that you can trust and lean on!
And is someone that you can
 certainly depend on!

Won’t you give him an opportunity to help you?
He reaches out his hand!  Because he loves you!

He is the source with an eternal heavenly treasure!
He can completely fill you! 
 Beyond measure!

The decision is yours!  A choice to be made!
There’s nothing for Jesus what’s worth the “trade!”

He’s everything that any of us can ever think of!
And can do more for you!  Than you ever dreamed of!

He’s the alpha and omega!  The beginning and the end!
Won’t you allow him to be your
 savior and friend???

THE UNHOLY DEAD

   THE UNHOLY DEAD
He would take her to heaven if she chose to go
but her world's just a place for the dead,
if she had a solution he wanted to know,
in a while it would be in his head.

All her world is a place for the unholy dead
she might answer his question two times,
in a while he might see, but will lose it instead
holding out for an answer that rhymes.

she might answer his question, and answer it twice,
"yes I love you but don't want to go,"
so he holds out much longer because of the price
of the things that he never should know.

"Yes I love you but it's not time for me to leave,"
she has told him, but didn't explain,
"Love is something you never should know nor believe,
unless you are a sweet summer rain."

Yes she told him, but didn't tell all that she knows,
he can't see how she loves him so much,
like a sweet summer rain she appears and then goes
to the heaven he wants her to touch.

He can't see how she loves him, his heart is so blind,
nor that they are in heaven--but how?
And he wants so to touch her, and then he will find
they're together in heaven right now.

How they got to heaven, she said time and again,
"I have loved you much longer than me,"
and together in heaven, they see how love's been
for as long as a true love can be.

She has loved him much longer than sweet summer rain
and before she was ever a child,
for as long as a true love that's hard to explain,
from where-ever a true love is filed.

And before she was young, in her place of the dead,
they were younger than love ever knows,
and where-ever love is, in the heart or the head,
they've gone into where-ever love goes.

Beautiful Children

Singing around in love;
Smiles built from the ground.
Holding hands in the dance;
Laughing with brothers and sisters,
All in His Glorious Name.
Throughout His perfectly sculpted land:
Look around because this is it;
Look around because this is love;
Look around and know, understand, comprehend,
Rejoice because you are perfect;
You are God's beautiful children!

Resting Spirits

up on the hill where you can just about see heaven 
thats where a spirit goes when it's concious is guilty of sin 
the spirit rests till it's own will can see 
all things that were are and will ever be 

if I wait till the dawn rises the reflection will stare 
straight twords the soul untill God's will is there 
up twords the sunlight follows the brilliant suns glare 
back from the heavens with all new flare 

where there is an opalesence look to the new moon 
follow it's shadows in a monthly gracefull swoon 
peacefullness in it's patterns a place away from the suns doom 
Carry me there away from here resting in it's shadows 
here in my souls cocoon

A Sinner Like Me

I'm a mess.
I've ruined this body You've designed;
I've ruined this heart You've shined;
I've ruined this breath You've shared;
I've ruined this life You've cared.
I've demolished this freedom You've given,
Yet You give it to me again.
Time and time around I have failed You;
Weak and falling trying to please You.
Earning I cannot for this is a gift from You.
Please forgive me;
Please save me:
You've picked me up and brushed me off;
Thank You for redeeming me.
Thank You for redeeming a sinner like me.
I have fallen once again.
I'm a mess,
But You forgive me.
You save me
Time and time around,
Eternally,
You brush me off and pick me up.
Thank You for redeeming me.
Thank You for redeeming a sinner like me.

Leah's Angel

The stale and dusty, lead filled air
Began to stir in widening breaths.
Pinpoints of light, ionic particles charged with power,
Picked up momentum, as reality stretched.

Excitedly, they began to spin in quickening orbits
Leaving sparkling tactile meteor showers.
Then flashed a brilliant light, so pure and white, 
It tossed me, crumbled, to the quaking floor,
For seemingly raw and unconscious hours.

Dazed, and disorientated, I feared the worst.
Was Death about to open Its ever-ending door?
But, around me grew a radiant hum, louder still it rumbled,
Until at last I braved to slit my eyes
To see, if only for a moment, what marvelous
Spectral filled the space, causing my life to tumble,
Twixt heaven and earth, twixt heart and soul.

There, mighty, glorious, beautiful
Beyond words or understanding
Suspended in the ether between heaven and earth
Was an Angel of Light, illumined by immense beauty and power.
Hand outstretched, She beckoned me, to rise and closer come.

I dared not breathe or blink my eyes, lest She disappear from sight.
But more than sight, or sound, or touch
Her proof was in the mighty waves;
Waves of Energy, radiating frequencies so high, they lifted me to 
Resonance; enough to see Her shape, Her robe of light,
Her all knowing piercing eyes.

Then She spoke to me in pictures, revealing in simpicity the very foundations 
of the earth, the moon and stars, and far flung universes.
She shared the truth of Power and Light, comforting me with the mere slight
Movement of her illumined, translucent hand.
She dismissed the dense lie of my earthbound body, and commanded forth
My own radiant, pulsing Body of Light, too beautiful to comprehend.

Then a voice so powerful, so filled with Love and Grace, 
Neither male nor female, without form or face,
Spoke to me from all directions and all dimensions of space.
As if to confirm my personal divinity, It said, “You are immortal, eternal, and 
Nothing can truly hurt you.  Remember always Who You are.”

At once, I feared yet dared to see. 
I felt release, expansive joy sublime;  
For there was I, a matching Light, 
An entity of Divine Peace and Love;
My spirit one with Her grace and poise,
One with all creatures; as below so above.

Her mission now complete, 
Her image slowly faded into everyday surroundings,
Yet Her Presence lingered still; the energy of the space She filled
Still crackled with power and beauty; the very thought of Her still thrilled.

Am I Still Forgiven

I did it again; I need forgiven.
Will He still forgive me even though I've fallen before?
I've fallen into these same sins countless times before;
I still haven't learned my lesson.
I am an ignorant hypocrite.
Am I still forgiven?

I Stand, Alone



I stand, alone.

Scratching for my truths,
peeling away the veneer,

I stand, alone, before this
impregnable cliff so sheer.

Cocooned in my solitary shell,
wrenching a smile from a tear,

I stand, alone, a little odd,
and definitely quite queer.

I stand, alone.

Resplendant With Light

Resplendant With Light “4 You are glorious and more majestic than the everlasting mountains.5 Our boldest enemies have been plundered. They lie before us in the sleep of death. No warrior could lift a hand against us. 6 At the blast of your breath, O God of Jacob, their horses and chariots lay still. 7 No wonder you are greatly feared! Who can stand before you when your anger explodes? 8 From heaven you sentenced your enemies; the earth trembled and stood silent before you. 9 You stand up to judge those who do evil, O God, and to rescue the oppressed of the earth.” Psa 76:4-9 NLT You are Resplendant With Light; More majestic than mountains filled with game. Valiant men lie plundered everywhere; They sleep the last sleep judgment claims. Both horse and chariot lie totally still; All weapons of war at their side. From heaven you pronounced judgment— Fire and hail both deep and wide. You break the spirit of earth’s rulers, Who trusted in their own ways; Failed to heed your warnings; Puffed up with pride always. Struck down in a moment— Two hundred million or so. The greatest army ever seen; Gone like a puff of wind that did blow. In your hand is a cup of foaming wine; Mixed with spices set to kill; Drunk down quickly by the wicked Who lie so motionless and deathly still. You are the one who makes the earth quake And holds its pillars firm. The arrogant to boast no more; Rather now food for the wriggling worm. You are Resplendant With Light; Your majesty reigns on high. What is mere man in comparison? A blade of grass withers in the sun to die. Your enemies are gone in a moment; No power against your Resplendant Light. War against man’s Maker, Shows total ignorance and pride’s blindsight. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh And Blood

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood!

We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but powers in a high place!
It’s a battle that continues each day! It’s evil vs. God’s grace!

There are powers of good and evil fighting for you and me!
They’re fighting for where your soul will be for eternity!

The Bible clearly speaks of this, and makes it very clear!
This world, as we know it, shall one day disappear!

This battle is not ours, but a spiritual one that rages!
It’s been going on, since the beginning of the ages!

Satan has unleashed his evil demons to run “here and there.”
His ultimate goal is to see you dead! HE DOESN’T CARE!

Jesus came, to sacrifice his life, to purchase your soul!
He loves you so very much! More than you'll ever know!

If you see yourself “wrestling,”
 against another person…
Let this be a reminder to you! 
And an important lesson!

The truth of God’s word is relevant! 
May it speak to you today!
Where there is a spiritual battle… 
Christ has made a way!

He’s made a way to flee! And accept his salvation plan!
The best thing you can do,
 is to put you life in HIS hands!

Jesus is the best reason for you to accept him! 
Won’t you do it?
Through the struggles and battle of life… 
He will see you through it!

Please come Lord Jesus and touch us 
with your glory that shines!
For you have already won the battle!  And victory can be MINE!

The Padre Of Old St Anthony

There he stood in the 
garden,a gentle fellow 
with glowing gown; 
radiating glory.
  His countenance was

The Padre of old St

  As I approached him,he 
gave me a warm.
Then he told me why he 
came to the mission,the

  We knelt down to pray,I 
thanked the Lord for a 
man such as this.
   Then the chapel bells 
the rang,I heard a 
voice"child it is time."
   I looked,lo saw I a fiery 
figure beckoning him to

  He stood up and looked 
at me with tender love in 
his eyes.
   Then I knew this man 
was an Angel,the Padre 
of old St Anthony.
   With joyous heart,I left

The super artist

The super artist

With each, sweet, precious moment
There’s a different kind of show
As I sit and watch these Tingle trees
How they glisten, how they glow!
Soft branches dance on cooling breeze
Beyond the river shore
Reflecting colours on the rivers sheen
As it sparkles more and more.

Am I standing here in Heaven?
What be this wondrous bliss?
That comes from all this beauty?
I’m mesmerized by this
As the sun shines on those Tingle trees
And I watch this picture show
A feeling soft and beautiful
Within my heart does glow.

There has to be some power
In the heavens up above
Who keeps this sun a shining
He’s an artist filled with love
He has those special powers
To fill each soul with bliss
As his colours fill the Universe
When he the World does kiss.

On the Wings of an Eagle

If I had the wings of an eagle
I would soar to the heights of the sky,
To look down on the beauty of life itself
And the marvels of creation from on high.

I can imagine all that our Creator does see
As He watches from heaven above,
Every creature, every thing that He has made,
Every beauty, each thing how he must love.

If I had the wings of an eagle
I would soar to the heights of the sky,
To look down on the beauty of life itself
And the marvels of creation from on high.

Can you imagine what it would feel like
To soar through the clouds way up above,
To kiss the edge of Heaven itself,
And feel the touch of God's own love.

Oh, if I had the wings of an eagle
How I could feel so free from earth beneath.
To soar to the very heights of the sky,
And enjoy the quiet of the clouds soaring by.

If I had the wings of an eagle
I would soar to the heights of the sky,
To look down on the beauty of life itself
And the marvels of creation from on high.

Hidden

The innocent child still crying,
That you nailed up on your wall,
Her tears are freely flowing,
As the autumn leaves do fall.
The wind of time still blowing,
Across the lonely way,
As the soldiers march to battle,
On this bright and sunny day.
I couldn't get the words,
To leave my knotted throat,
I couldn't get my loved ones,
To leave the sinking boat.
I couldn't think the thoughts,
That could protect me from the light,
Couldn't see your beauty,
Hidden in my night.

And now the end is coming,
Riding on the wind,
To blow away illusions,
To blow up everything.

The riders horse is thunder,
The swords are flashing high,
As the angels of destruction 
Fall from the darken sky.

A million times I told you,
Whispered in your ear,
A million blessing hidden,
Behind the demons of your fears.

The innocent lamb is bleeding,
As the lightening flashes by,
The autumn leaves still falling,
From the sadness in your eye.

Sliding Down

I’m hoping for my dreams to become a reality
I’m hoping for a phase of gratitude
I’m rejecting my hopeless fate
I’m accepting your side of the story…but don’t intrude 

Unexpectedly, I believe in love in first sight
I grab the rope for extra support
It burns like a vertical line of fire
I’m unable to climb, but I seem too far from my desire 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down… 

I cherish you like my own belongings
I designed you on my bedroom wall
I have you displayed deep in my heart
Believe me – you’ll never split it apart 

Every day I long for your touch – you changed my life around
My heart is blazing like the zealous sun…I prize my freedom and progress
The world is spinning endlessly as I kneel upon my knees 
And I imagine the memories we share with each other 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down…

When I reflect upon the joyous times,
My heart never fails
To pound vigorously for you
I’m sliding down 
I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you 

I see the light in your eyes
I don’t see an insidious nature in you…
I wish I hadn't believed in the lies
I never felt like a hopeless victim until I gave in to the darkness 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down…

I’m glad I've met you in the first place
We’re a perfect match – 
Don’t deny it…you made me feel handsome
We’re on the road of victory
We’re making great progress
We’re hanging on the edge,
But we were rescued 
From sliding down…

At least we’re kept ourselves alive……

Contrast

Pharisee went into the Temple to pray
Sure of his goodness and love for God
He prayed confidently about his deeds
Fasting, tithing, praying, He did faithfully
 
This man was glad when the sinner came
Into the Temple with eyes downcast.
For it gave a perfect contrast to himself.
So he thanked God he wasn't like this sinner.
 
Sinner was bowed so very low before God.
"God have mercy on me a sinner." he whispered.
No list of good uttered, as he could see none.
Jesus said Sinner not Pharisee was justified.
 
Simon the Pharisee invited Jesus over to eat.
Simon didn't have servants wash Jesus feet
He didn't kiss Jesus or draw near for fear,
Fear of what others Pharisees would think.
 
In came a sinful woman with unkempt hair.
She wept at Jesus feet without looking up.
Carefully she wiped these feet with her hair.
Simon was now sure Jesus was no prophet
 
A prophet could surely tell she was a sinner.
How could he let her touch him that way?
Reading Simon's thoughts Jesus taught.
Using this contrast in real life as a lesson.
 
He asked Simon if there were two debts
One greater, one lesser and both forgiven.
Who would feel greater love and gratitude?
Simon replied, "The one whose debt was greater"
 
"Correct" said the One who would pay all debts.
Those who know their debt to God is great.
Are filled with greater love toward the Savior.
Simon showed he had little need for the Christ.
 
But to the woman. Jesus said, "You sins are forgiven."
"Go and sin no more." She stood free and esteemed
Precious are those who come humbly to the Lord
He will forgive and welcome them to His Family forever.
 
Humility. Pride. Contrast. Mixed in all of us.
People who come to God feeling worthless, Christ lifts up.
People striding in proudly, Jesus humbles to allow entry.
For the Lord's Kingdom's door is incredibly low.
So low that we enter only through true confession
From the heart to Jesus as Savior who humbled Himself
Coming down from glory to earth's mess to make a Way.
By humbling Himself on a Cross – Universe's God tortured.
 
Jesus contrast makes ours seem small – so why wait?
May we take the humble road to Life, risen Christ made.
Joining God's family of forgiven, freed, joyful sinners.
New life's contrast with old will grow as we follow Him.
 
By a thankful sinner now saint by Jesus' grace

One Thing

We can wake up,
And this all might be changed.
But one thing remains:
We are saved.

A Paean to God

That the brilliance of your majestic ways
and fire that burns from your white-hot eyes
may give their light to space of infinite size 
and shine on all Earth's creatures' love and praise;
that the mercy you give to him that prays
for pious ways to keep his lips from lies,
for faith and grace to remain pure and wise
may give heaven renewed glory and raise;
that the millennial Kingdom's earthly time
arrives after end times' brief, labor pangs
and saves God's children from sin's filthy grime,
so they that were tempted by Satan's gangs
will live on in glory and in their prime
once Christ removes the Serpent's deadly fangs!

The Last Hour of the Christ

I wear the crown of hatred
misunderstanding and despair upon my hair
upon my back a wooden cross I bare
I know not why I’m hated so
all the people seemed to love me just a week ago

my skin is cut from head to toe
from whips of leather by men who wish to see me die
I spoke the truth for all the people to understand
my words of truth where words to set man free
from degradation hate and hell to live in harmony
for the rest of history

I cured the sick and healed the blind
with the touch of my own hand
I’ve walked on water and walked on sand
to preach and bring my truth through out the land 

people came from all around 
and would sit for hours upon the ground
I once had twelve good men who followed me around
now there’s only eleven one man let me down

my words have been mistaken
my God he has forsaken 
for that my life they’re taken
I believe that I have failed 
as my hands and feet are nailed upon this wooden cross
as they raise me in the air
all their sins I know I must bare

I want to scream not fair not fair
I’m just a young man I only wanted to teach
there are so many more people that I wanted to reach
my age is only thirty three
I pray my God
that they the people will remember me

written by Dennis H. Davis 
This poem was written from the human aspect of Jesus Christ. I wrote this poem with no effort what so ever it was as though it was being told to me. I watched my hand move across the page with a purpose a message I believe Jesus wanted this poem written.

The Fourth Fable

 The Fourth Fable 
The Fourth Fable 
 
A Jesus Cowboy Song 
 
Eye am a strong man iff strength is not physical alone, 
but charachter and hope, love become my armour 
 my arm as gates once opened close now new ones open at a glance in poverty 
of riches poor people there in Heaven sing to Jesus as they wave branches from 
the richness of the trees beside the waters running in the trenches freely given 
overflowing when a little lamb just wants a drink of water another drink the water 
bubbles up so no one has to lift her she can reach the water carefully she drinks 
and then she sings…' 
'my holster is empty my life is complete my love is in Heaven 
eye have plenty to eat and to drink ' 
life is not meant to be a shoot em up rodeo 
life is not meant to be a shoot um up movie 
my life is in Heaven my holster is empty 
eye have LOVE'

Angels Without Wings

There are Angels in Heaven, that haven't any wings.
No miracles or visions or any of those things,
that Angels are said to do, to help us along.
But, these wingless Angels, they sing the sweetest songs.

As they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Fluffing the softest clouds, so as to lay their small heads to rest.
They cover them in quilts of love and tenderness.
You know these wingless Angels, are God's very best.

I know personally, four of the wingless Angels, who love their task.
I am sure they volunteered, without being asked.
Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, never needed wings,
for they were Angels while on this earth, their praises I sing.

As they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Fluff the softest clouds they find, when the babes need rest.
Covering them in quilts of love and tenderness.
Yes, I know these four wingless Angels, are God's very best.

The children flock around Grandpa, to hear his silly jokes.
Watch him make bubbles float and blow multi colored rings of smoke.
Grandma and Mom, make cookies and cake, fresh from the sun.
Making sure as to not run out, sharing with everyone.
Dad is making sure the piggy back rides, never stop.
He finds the best clouds around, to bounce atop.

At night, they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Gathering up the softest clouds, on which to rest.
They cover them in quilts of love and tenderness.
These four wingless Angels, are God's very best.

My Baby Angel

I'm sitting here thinking,
  thinking about the day.
The day my Lord Jesus Christ,
  carried my baby angel away.

Then I think my baby angel sings,
  no sorrow, only laughter and play.
While our Lord God Highest of High,
  The Almighty leads and lights the way.

Holding the hand of Jesus Christ,
  my baby angel walks golden streets.
I miss my little angel and one day,
  One day in glorious heaven we will meet.

A day I will praise and rejoice,
  My soul will see your face.
We'll be together forever and I'll never,
  again feel so out of place.

Our Divine Haven

This town was the place we used to call our haven 
You don’t remember which road we’ve driven on 
The stars were shining against your cherished soul 
You’re a part of my belongings 
You’re ascending above the ground 
The peace is still like hidden treasure – it’s bound to be found

I believe in you…I put my faith in you
After the miracles you’ve performed 
You don’t agree with what you truly are 
The sky is grieving 
You jump from puddle to puddle
You’re struggling to meet your destiny  
Even if your body is saturated in sweat
You must keep your head above the sea

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
I could tell you've been stressing out 
But rest your head on my shoulders and let loose your strain on me  

Each melody is an exquisite sound that bounces into our ears
Commotion and strife will cease and your heart will be free
We’ll flee  together…despite the unwholesome weather 
The voyage has just begun…hold my hand and we’ll rise like the sun
Trust me…we will be strengthened and well-equipped before we take that road of victory  

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
You’d rather be drifting away and never be seen again 
I wanna change your mind and erase your frown
Take your mind off of the distressful past
Let loose your strain on me  

Hey! I know you’re stronger than you realize
You’re not a failure – don’t be disheartened  
Don’t worry…you and I will earn our future prize 
This mess will clear up in a moment
Just stay by my side and never depart 
From the light… I promise that we’ll endure till the end
Just stay nearby and our hope won’t tear apart
We are willing to do anything to attain our wishes and delight  
Let’s take action and snatch our glory before our time is up 

Follow me and I’ll lead you to divine haven 
Forgive the past that embraces you with remorse and think upon our jubilant future
It’s tempting to just give up and turn around 
You've been trying to keep a steady pace 
But rest your head on my shoulders and let loose your strain on me

Let loose your stress on me…
Don’t be under pressure
Let me handle your anxiety…
Reach towards our divine haven
Do you need a helping hand? 

I wish you a carefree 
Future

Moment to Reflect

Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. Many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasure that are a wonder to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you can find rest, for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago prepare The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all a long time ago and I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please live inside of me until the end. I sow the seeds and when the harvest comes you will know where it can from. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?

An Astronaut

I think I was an astronaut
Aimed for the stars.
They fill me up;
They refuel my tank.
They enable me to believe,
Telling me to never give up
As they follow me all of my days.
If only we could see the beauty
That they truly are.
They shout out dreams
That we can reach so far.
Climb into the rocket
And liftoff!
On a journey to discover ourselves,
We are taught so much more,
Learning our goals are only a plan away.
Even thought we must return,
I know that I will be back.
I am an astronaut,
And we always reach for the stars.

What Have I Done For Jesus

What Have I Done For Jesus???

I’m trying to remember the things I’ve dreamed of…
There so much I haven’t done, that I can think of!
I’m trying to remember when I was just a young boy…
There were things in life that I really enjoyed!
But, as I grow older, and it’s all done and said…
I feel more aches and pains each time I get out of bed!

This old body of mine is growing very weary and old.
I don’t have a lot of time, as I have been told!
There’s one area in life, where I’ve fallen short of a goal…
I haven’t given God a chance to redeem my soul!
I suppose I’ve been too prideful and stubborn at best…
I need to give God my life, and let him take care of the rest!

Dear Jesus, I come to you now and confess my sinful ways!
I accept you as my Lord and savior, for the rest of my days!
Please come lord Jesus, and bring your healing deep within!
Cleanse and change me, and take away all of my sin!

You’re what I need!  And are truly my best friend!
How I love and appreciate you!  Again and again!

Communion

I long to write metaphors in shades mosaic 
Paint the peace that denies within 
In my mind harness liquid essence poetic
This conscience which now dances amidst a violent wind

I wish to empathize with the Monarch butterfly 
Landing quite inquisitive upon my limb 
Like it, withdraw from never asking why
Just to discover who I really am

Journey off from bustle to secret places
Where city sounds whisper so very dim
And words fall out of clouds picturesque 
It’s here; I know I can easily talk to Him

Form my thoughts, offer praising supplication
Let sail my soul upon His waters placid
Bringing back to life meanings of lost versification
Then my pen writes what afore could not be answered

And soon my pages fill as glaciers fall into warmer oceans
Overflow like the rivers do in rainstorms advent
Revealing purpose through myriad sacred revelations
Heaven’s door opens and I step through in… 
At peace evermore, I am

We have hope in Gloryland

Just the other day
a scene caught my eye
parents picking flowers for the grave of a child
tears filled my eyes as I realized 
this was the only gift for Christmas they could by

but we have hope in gloryland
someday we'll meet again
what a glad reunion that will be
no more pain and strife
or loss from this life
yes, we have hope 
over in glory land

I have a baby 
in heaven you see
and the angels are holding that baby for me
somedays I cry , then I stop and  realize
Heaven is just a sweeter place for me

I have family 
and loved ones 
waiting over there just for me
and I know they are sick no more
Then I start thanking Jesus 
for The Precious price He paid
thanks to Him I have heaven to look for.

With The Best Of Intentions And A Heart Of Grace


With the best of intentions and a heart of grace…
Christ died on a cross!  He took our place!

With the best of heaven close by his side…
Christ opened the door to heaven ever so wide!

With the best love that anyone could bring…
He took away our sin and “erased” everything!

With the best that his father could bring from above.
It was his gifts of mercy, 
grace and love!

With the “best” man could offer, he would still “fall short.”
God brought the gift of salvation,
 down into our “court.”

With hearts filled with wickedness and so much sin…
Through Christ’ shed blood... 
 We can be made “born again!”

With each day we have...  Christ is always here!
His commitment to us is everlasting and secure!

With every moment of the day 
 we have before us…
May we spend time with God…  
He’s always with us!

With what God has given to you….  
Won’t you come to him?
Through his son Jesus, 
your heavenly journey begins!

“I LOVE YOU!” Are the words God has written!
This can be the day your changed and forgiven!

Cold Freedom

Look outside the window and see the cold. 
Billions of flakes of snow blast into the air
the hills topped with shining light 
They fly away to another end of the frozen night. 
The sweet taste bites the tongue of the homeless man. 
It frees the chained and abused paved American land. 
No more cars on the street, 
replaced by the wonderful torrential sleet. 

Go outside, hands in the air, and feel the cold. 
Do not expect heaven to answer the call. 
The only answer is the cold night,
that is brought by the beautiful, moving flakes of light. 
The creeping numbness takes all feeling away
then there is no wrong or right anymore.
Smile! Congratulations! You are Free! 

Join me now, lift your earmuffs, let's hear the cold. 
All the soft steps of a billion flakes in the world. 
There are no more machines on the road. 
And no more yells or hustles and bustles
of a million people on the city streets. 
All the shops closed, the end of human greed. 
The slight creaking sound of boots on the ground
but this isn't an another invasion; this is peace.
In the cold, we hear the true sound of light,
removed from the solitude of warm crowded night.   

Smile, remove your scarf, and smell the cold. 
Realize that it is not as you were always told, 
dangerous and dark, a place to find death. 
Ah, the sweet scent of a warm fire.
A family and stranger alike seeking warmth. 
Our nostril's burned by ice, 
the world no longer stinking of vice. 

See the power of the cold? 
Able to unite people unlike any story told. 
Do we need God's device? When we can unite to combat ice? 
War, a dream in this wasteland of our hearts. 
The old is cleansed and reborn in the light filled night.
The time has come to freeze the apocalypse!
Look in the same window do not doubt what you see! 
Yes, it's true, it has entered your heart, we ARE the cold. 
Shining like a million morning stars, reborn a thousand fold!
People inside huddled, ignorant and blind. 
Outside the cold we do not mind. 
“Become what you ARE!”
Look outside and the chains fall!

The Romans Road To Heaven

In the Bible book of Romans there is a simple way
To know the way to heaven that you can know today.
The first truth we must realize is there’s not a righteous one;
In Romans three it’s stated—verse ten says, “There is none.”
We’re shown that we are sinners, as shown in chapter three;
Verse twenty-three says clearly it includes you and me.
Then we must know the sentence:  it’s a death that separates
Us from a home in heaven in an eternal state.
That passage there in Romans starts out in chapter six,
Verse twenty-three states clearly the penalty is fixed.
We see the reason for it in Romans chapter five:
Verse twelve says one man sinned then, now all who are alive
Have this sentence passed upon them, but now look at verse eight!
For Christ has paid the sentence, we can enter heaven’s gate!
As we go back and read it in chapter six again,
Verse twenty-three has good news of forgiveness from our sin!
We all have earned the wages of death to come some day,
But God’s love has provided eternal life this way:
His gift, Christ dying for us, we now by faith receive:
The act of Him receiving is simply to believe.
For chapter ten and verses ten through verse thirteen
Explain the simple process that can be clearly seen:
Confess now the Lord Jesus, with your heart now believe,
And call upon the Savior, this new life to receive!
Then we can know forever that we are justified,
Secure in Him forever who for us one day died.
See Romans five, verse one now; see Romans 8:1, too;
Then read the final verses to see this blessing true.
Start at verse twenty-nine there and see God’s wondrous love,
And how He has secured you that home in heaven above!
Yes, in this book of Romans a road God clearly shows
How we can go to heaven, and for sure it we can know!

Changing Directions

	I was driving on Confused Avenue, only to find a T section at the end of the Avenue, I had to turn left, turn right, or simply just turn around.
	I sat in my car, to read the street signs.  The street sign to the left was Hell Street, the sign to the right was Heaven Highway.
	Quite naturally, I turned right onto Heaven Highway.  I drove 10 miles only to find Heaven Highway was blocked, so I had no choice but to turn around.
	Instead of turning back on Confused Avenue, I decided to drive down Hell Street because I was curious about what I would find.  I drove 5 miles and didn’t like what I saw.  I tried to turn around, but, I realized I was trapped, so I continue driving on Hell Street, oh and to my surprise.
	As I drove, I past intersections titled Judgmental Court, Temptation Avenue, Backsliding Lane, Gossip Corner and Devil’s Plain.  I said to myself, these are the same streets I’ve traveled on before, no need to stop, I need to drive on. 
	I continue driving on Hell Street looking for a way to turn around, lo and behold, I saw a bright light shining in the middle of the road.
	I drove as close as I could to the bright light, I stopped the car and got out for a closer look.  I walked into the light and was greeted by a man who was kind and wise.
	I was so scared, but he assured me I would be fine.  He said I saw you driving on Heaven Highway….child, you can’t get to heaven driving that way.
	He said, In order to get to heaven you need to know about  Judgmental Court, Temptation Avenue, Backsliding Lane, Gossip Corner and Devil’s Plain.  
	I told the man I once lived on some of those streets, so I wanted to see where Heaven Highway would take me.  It was blocked, so I couldn’t drive through.
	He said Heaven Highway was blocked for a reason. You forgot to repent and ask the Father, through His Son Jesus, for forgiveness.
	I closed my eyes, feel to my knees and I started to pray, when I finished praying, I  opened my eyes, the man, and, the bright light had disappeared.
	I got back in my car and turned it around, that’s when I realized I had been driving on Heaven Highway the entire time.
	The Highway to Heaven is not a straight forward drive, there are so many detours along the way, that force many to turn their life around.

Come Up Higher

I write of a dream
Out of the body, alive in the spirit
It begin on a slipping bare field
Intriguingly, there is nothing to shield

A feeling of fear run through me
As the enemy approaches
A mass of fearful thoughts
As the foe runs across

Running, racing, gasping for breath
Climbing steeper slopes
Running endless races
Racing to dreadful places

For one glorious moment
It dawned on me I can fly
I can fly on wings of Angels?
Even on wings of archangels?

Then comes a voice…Echoing
Come on fly!...Come up higher!
In awe! My feet was high above the ground
This left the enemy confound

I begin to soar and to glide like an Eagle
High up am safe and secure!
High up I can reach for the stars!
High up I can reach for the mars!!

And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come Up Here [Higher]”. And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them [no more]. Revelation 11:12

The Dance

The Dance

My mother died some time ago
And God took her away,
To begin her dance with Jesus
That continues to this day

She wasn’t her old self that day,
Her memories had flown
He invited mom’s new self to dance,
And the Father took her home

Mom never was a dancer
That I ever heard her claim,
But the steps she does with Jesus
Would put Fred Astaire to shame

Perfect mind in perfect love,
With perfect memory,
As she whirls and twirls with The Lord of the Dance,
And waits with Him for me

My Brother’s up there with her,
I’m sure he cheers her on,
And does a jig or two himself
When Heaven plays the song

My other brother’s with me still,
And our sweet sister too,
The three of us with our dear dad,
Believe all this is true

Mom is up there dancing,
All over Canaan Land,
Perfect in the arms of Jesus,
As He strikes up the band

Christmas Tears In Heaven

Does Jesus cry in heaven because of what folks do
With parties held on Christmas with lots of Christmas brew?
Does Jesus cry on Christmas because the churches close,
They think that few will come there; some other place they chose?
Do angels cry there with Him because of few who sing
The songs with awe and wonder without loud drums and strings?
Do all the saints cry also because this sacred day
Is missing on the calendar in oh, so many ways?
No Christmas tears in heaven?  I wonder how could be
When Calvary’s tree’s forgotten, replaced by Christmas trees?
No room that night back yonder, no room for Him today--
It should bring sadness to us, but too many are astray.
They say that up in heaven no one’s supposed to cry,
But as I think about this, I have to wonder why.
Are there no tears in heaven because down here below
Folks desecrate our Savior with places that they go
On Christmas Day especially, when angels up above
Once sang a precious story about His wondrous love?
The Christmas tears in heaven may be shed after all
Because too many people no longer hear the call.
Too many think that Christmas is all of old Saint Nick,
The presents and the parties and reindeer paws that click.
It must not be Christ’s birthday; He gets few gifts that day,
But oh, the money spent then for another’s gift display!
We’re promised in the Bible that God will dry our tears,
But I wonder if in heaven that tears may still be here?
I hope that they aren’t crying because of what I do
On Christmas Day for Jesus or others all year through.
May Christmas tears in heaven be never shed for me;
I want to honor JESUS more than the gifts I see!
I want to make Him special, first in all I do and say,
So Christmas tears in heaven aren’t shed for me today!

Life in a Dream corrected

Moments to Reflect
Life found in a Dream 
Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. There are many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasures that are a wonders to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you will find rest and for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago and I prepared The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all to read a long time ago. I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it’s just not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please come and live inside of me until the end. I now sow the seeds and when the harvest comes the Lord will know if they landed on fertile ground. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?

God Wants You to Be With Him Forever



 God Wants You To Be With Him forever!

Heaven can one day be your

You can know for a certainty…
Where you’ll be spending eternity.

What true life is all about!

You can know
 the peace of God today!
Meditate on God’s word
 and what it has to say!

Why not give your heart to him?
And know what it means

And accept his heart-felt invitation?

You can know God’s

What are you waiting for?  
This could be YOUR hour!

Our Love Is Enough

We don't need to go out and party,
We don't need to drink,
We don't need to socialize,
We don't need to go shopping,
We don't need to spend money,
We don't need to go to a movie,
We don't need to watch sporting events,
We don't need to go out to eat,
Because we found love,
And our love is enough.

A Blessing

As the sun fades away into the horizon, 
For a split second, 
The world experiences a moment of darkness, 
But then the moon rises, 
With its magnificent glow, 
Blessing the Earth 
Once again with light, 
A blessing from the heavens 
That we tend to take for granted

God Is Awesome and His Beauty Displayed!

God is awesome and his beauty displayed!
He’s my protector!  I’ve no reason to be afraid!

God is wonderful!  And his glory never ends!
He is my Lord!  My provider and friend!

God is magnificent!  And his glory is real!
Behold the God of Abraham, Jacob and Israel!

God is omnipresent! 
 He’s wherever I go!
His son Jesus, has totally
 cleansed my soul!

He’s the reason that I am here today!
I love him much more, than words can say!

He’s the reason why I can face tomorrow!
He’s removed my pain, guilt and sorrow!

His word is my guiding light as I travel on.
It shows me what is right..  And what is wrong!

He put his love, like a shield around me!
I once was lost, but his spirit found me!

He’s given to me his faithfulness!  Forever true!
And spoke to me; “I’ll forever LOVE YOU!”

He’s my rock, my hope and salvation!
Through Jesus, there is no separation!

He can be your God too! 
 Why not come to him?
Through Jesus, is where
 a new life BEGINS!

SKIES FULL OF WONDERS

written 9th June 2013



See the sight of a full moon in the dark of night
 if done just right, it's a magical sight

Watch, as the sun descend's off the edge of the earth
 it's flame's extinguish, as if by the ocean's thirst

Look deep, into the sky at night
 you'll be "surprised by your delight

All of the heavens glory
 will return again, the next morning

So send a wish, upon your favourite star
 you'll never guess that your wish, went so far

So at the end of every busy daylight
 breathe in the gift, of heaven's blissful night 

I guarantee, it'll help you sleep peaceful and right
 well, into his new mornings delight

Port of Call

Port of Call


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

with the breath of the ocean a caressing balm,
soothing pained memories away,
to the swaying of a solitary palm.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

feeling the brushing away of all past turmoil,
on a quest for solace, ever so hard to find,
yet comforted by the crashing of the waves,
as the tide cleanses all pain,
and leaves despair far, far behind.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

drenched in a sea-breeze of mist,
that hushes the ache of bygone moons,
tasting the salty tang on my lips,
as the burnished sun,
over the distant horizon,
swoons,

and dips.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

searching, ever searching,
for a slice of solitude,
as memory bids a final adieu,
reaching under the sea so vast,
and seeking comfort in the depths,
while embracing,
the tomorrows to come,
wishing that they be true.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

seeing my truths drown,
as they slip beneath the turquoise waters,

feeling my heart ablaze,
with a passion that rarely falters.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

yet knowing that I am home at long last,
wishing the waves would wash away,
the defences that once stood,
like an impregnable wall.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

I have found, at long last,

my final port of call.

Space: The Starry Heaven

We live in a lonely universe. Observe earth from space and it is simply a vibrant celestial body, in miles and miles of emptiness. This poem emphasizes on the power of our imagination, in breathing life into this very nothingness.

Nebula's and galaxy's a plenty,
all perfectly align,
with such rhythmic precision,
and bow to the starry heaven.

they are perfectly radiant dreams,
of such gargantuan proportions,
of such admirable dispositions,
they gleam, they shine, they meet.

Such desirous temperaments,
never even try to swim,
in an ocean of a hundred universes,
but from where I stand, they do.

a million vantage points,
on a thousand scattered planets,
if such is the case than why,
am I not omnipresent?

Perhaps I am, from where I stand,
under this starless heaven,
eternal, horizon-less,
this lovely imagination.

She



A sweetly-scented, earthy rain-storm,
she came to me,

thunderously raging with raw emotion,
she came to me,

drenched in the essence of truth,
she came to me,

she touched a chord deep inside,
she strummed away all emptiness,

she came to me,

once...

she comes to me,

still...


a gentle presence filling my life,


she comes to me,


still,

a healing spirit soothing all inner strife.

This Nornalup

I stand there on this patio
And watch the river flow
As grey skies in the heavens
Do hide suns warming glow
Tall trees like giants on yonder shore
Stand as icons to the power
That made this earth so beautiful
With it’s trees, and clouds and flowers.

Five boats lie on the grassy bank
As they wait to ride the river
As motor boat comes speeding by
To my eyes it does deliver
A breath of action to the scene
So silent, soft and still
And everything feels wonderful
And wonderful I feel.

Some fishing folk fix up their boats
A day of sport they see
While me, I watch the river flow
The whole day, endlessly
As I ponder on the magnitude
And the power of this scene
In the loveliness of Nornalup
On this morning so serene.

A God of the Past and the Future

A God of the Past & the Future “1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” 5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Rev 21:1-5 NIV Although world history is taught As the history of civilizations, God is in control of the past and the future, As can be seen from Genesis to Revelation. God created this earth and the heavens, And will destroy it with fire as well. The earth and heavens will be made new, That’s what John the Revelator did tell. Human history had a definite beginning And faces a glorious future too. Of this we can be certain, Because God’s words are trustworthy and true. The Lord knows the end and has revealed it, To those who choose to seek. The old will give way to the new; The proud will give way to the humble and weak. History had its beginning, And will have its end as well. The prophets acted as historians, And the future so often did spell. God sustains all His creations By natural laws that are good, But some humans choose to ignore Him; Their self-sufficiency not understood. The rise and fall of kingdoms Is in God’s powerful hands. The great controversy between good and evil, Man only partly understands. God is A God of the Past and the Future; Time stands in between. Christ has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; Our stranded history will soon be nothing but a dream! Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2012 www.maureenlefanue.com

God Has Sent Jesus

God Has Sent Jesus!

God has given a wonderful gift!.  
Many haven't received it.
He loves us so much! 
 Many do not believe it.

He’s given us the gift of salvation.  
Many refuse it.
All that we hold on to.  
We shall one day lose it...

God gives to all, a joyous and 
brand new way of living!
Many are living a life
 that is not fulfilling.

Jesus...  His Son...  Is knocking 
at our heart's door.
Many have said; "Go away!"  
I don't want you anymore!"

God looks down from heaven,
 and what does he find?
The wickedness and
 sin there is in mankind.

Won't you accept this gift 
that he offers to you?
The choice is yours alone.  
What are you going to do?

He awaits your decision.  You need to 
make up your mind.
Now is the day of salvation. 
 Now is the accepted time!

Time is growing short.  
The hour's getting late.
Come to him now!  While there's
 still an open gate!

Gifted Believers

Gifted Believers “10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. ” 1 Peter 4:10-11 NIV The Holy Spirit calls us to ministry And equips us as well. He gives us gifts to witness And of God’s love to tell. He sends us out for ministry And equips us for each task. He is our Helper sent by Christ; All we need do is ask. Gifted Believers have a mission To teach, prophesy or heal; Will be given affirmation from fellow servants; Their gifts heaven desires to reveal. In the work of spreading the Gospel, Each believer must be involved. Nurturing is just as important, As preaching or administration problems solved. Spiritual gifts are distributed by the Holy Spirit, As he sees these gifts required. Self is not involved in the decision-making, And the choice cannot be aspired. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal, The gifts you have been given. He’ll equip you to use them To swell the courts of heaven. Gifted Believers are to spread the gospel; Depend upon the Holy Spirit; Be equipped by faith for the ministry— God’s power and glory to admit. The glorification of our Father And His amazing love Is what draws each stranger To desire a home in heaven above. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

Do You

Split decisions dance with time 
and as each one intertwines 
they align 
with the story of God’s design 
the medley of your memory trace 
promotes your enduring shape 
Like fossilized bones 
Or data lines on a disk 
Each encoding depicts history 
And how you created it 
If thoughts beget actions 
And actions engender waterfalls 
And integral 
Pieces of your life 
Then its up to you to conquer 
All your strife 
For no one else controls your destiny 
Your apex 
Or your valleys 
Crawl along slowly 
Or live for the day 
Its almost like Burger King 
You can have it your way 
Of course there are setbacks 
And complications 
But each one contains 
A valuable lesson 
To resolve to evolve and grow 
With grace 
Never forget to look to coach God 
To monitor your pace 
Prepare wisely and move along 
Just remember this isn’t a sprint 
It’s a marathon

Do You Blame Or Trust God


Do You Blame Or Trust God? Do you blame God for the trials you may face? Do you reject God’s mercy and grace? Perhaps you are in a most “difficult situation.” You can’t figure out a “reasonable explanation?” You may feel abandoned, alone and afraid. There may have been times when you prayed. You don’t know why this happening to you? You probably try your best in all that you do! But, it still things really haven’t worked out. And you often wonder what life is all about? Rather than blaming God… Why not trust him? He’s not your enemy! He wants you to know him! He’s not the blame for the sorrows of mankind! He’s always faithful, most loving and kind! He patiently waits for anyone to call on his name! With him in control… Things won’t be the same! He is here! Even if everyone else fails you! If you give him a chance! He wants to help you! Won’t you take the time, and invite him in? This is where a new opportunity can begin! His life for yours, is what he gives in exchange! He can help your situation to really change! He can change your life! And turn it around! And can put your life on a solid ground! By Jim Pemberton

There Is A Heaven There Is A Hell

There Is A Heaven... There Is A Hell… I met a person. As he spoke, I could tell. He’s quite happy. He doesn’t believe there a “hell.” He said; “much of what the Bible says has a new meaning. “God is a loving God,” is rather appealing. “God couldn’t condemn a person to an eternal fire.” “This isn’t his will…” “Nor his desire.” “The words of death or hell don’t mean what they say.” “Why should anyone believe that Jesus is the way?” Christ came so we can spend eternity with him. He became the ultimate sacrifice for our sin. It’s not God. But our sin, that’s caused a “separation.” But God has extended to all his gift of salvation. God’s warning is clear. And quite evident. The coming of Christ is very soon and imminent! The truth of God’s word is 100% certainty. And gives clear direction where you’ll spend eternity. Narrow is heaven’s road... Broad is the road to eternal destruction. Will you believe God’s word? Or live on a false assumption? All of heaven awaits for you to make a decision. Why not follow Christ? And make heaven your mission? Allow God to work in your life. Simply obey and believe. His abundance of life is for everyone to receive! By Jim Pemberton 09/09/11

Father song

Father song

Behold I have set my eyes upon you from eternities past to the dawn of time,
Set my eyes upon you with hope in mind
With glee and rapture, I beheld the beauty of your form,
A form that I fashioned with great expectation and delight,
I cradled you in my arms and watched you come alive,
With teardrops rain, in slow motion, in concert,
Like the first rays of sunshine over the horizon.
With it’s shimmering light reflected in billowing clouds of contrast,
A symphony of emotion drawn from the depths of My love,
We laughed and sang and ventured through wilderness together,
You were and always have been the focus of my gaze,
In spite of knowing you would turn from Me, in the twilight of our song,
Forgetting it was I that danced with you in delight at every new discovery,
I created you anyway, so you would live in a world enraptured by the absence of love, then you could truly choose Love in earnest,
My song has surrounded you always, calling you back to me,
And now you have, picked up the chorus
Join me now in ventures be,
The Fathers song sung over thee.

Why Do People Complain About God


Quite often, I hear many complaints
When it comes to Godly “restraints.”

Often, things of God are
called “bigotry.”
AS much of this nation indulges
In idolatry!

God?   Well, “we just don’t
need him!”
”Why should anyone ever believe him?”

Many churches provide
very little Godly direction.
They’re more concerned about
“getting people’s attention.”

No wonder why many don't 
know what to believe!.
Drugs and sex is what many
 want to achieve!

God is what is really what’s needed!
Without him, our life is
never completed!

Rather than complain…
We need to praise him!
One day…  We shall all
kneel down before him!

It’s only in Christ… 
We have purpose and hope!
Without him…  We’re on a
“slippery slope.”

Won’t you come and invite
the Lord Jesus in?
He’ll bless your life 
again and again!

He gives true life!  That’s everlasting!
It can be yours!  Just for the asking!

The words;  “I love you!”  
He’s always revealing!

There’s no end to HIS majesty!
 He rules SUPREME!
He is God.  Your provider… 
 He Is EVERYTHING!

There’s no end to the times he’s 
knocked at your heart’s door.
Why not invite him in??? 
What are you waiting for?

Why not accept this unlimited God
 who’s patient and kind?
Won’t you do this today? 
 Why there is still time?

Living Life True

My Father in Heaven I ask for your blessing.
Blessings to you my father in Heaven forever,
Yes, God and his son is whom I am addressing

I pray for others, my sins I continue to endeavor.
Delivering my best, I will always be a sinner.
My heart believes and my soul will not sever.

My faith, love is stronger then any beginner.
I thank you for all the blessings I receive.
I do not want to only thank you for dinner.

I want to take away pain of those who grieve.
I send blessings to those who have less then me.
I plea for a message for those thinking they achieve.

My heart and soul, I pray the truth to see.
My mind and actions I give wholly to you.
Everyday I promise to try for the success of thee.


Not for merely going to church of staffs hue,
However, for believing, loving, living life true.

Heaven Bound

Heaven Bound
Dr. James E. Martin
©March, 2013

Are you heaven bound?
This answer can surely be found. 
It is settled in God’s eternal Book,
If one should choose to look.

Can one really be sure?
Is this truth that obscure?
I settled this long ago
And this one truth I do know.

It is really simple you see
If you desire to be free.
In His Book you will find
Help for an unsettled mind.

Why do folks fail to inquire
About this ultimate desire?
It really should be finalized
And assurance of heaven realized.

On days like this

On days like this when I’m doused in grey
and I fear I’ll not see the sun;
I wish I could just secret myself away
until this dreary day be done.
Even the lake somehow seems sad
at this day’s imperfection.
I sit her disappointed and mad
for the lake has lost all its reflection.
No mountain top can be seen through the cloud,
there’s only a lone Sea gull high on the wing.
Today I do not know what will be allowed,
It is a most worrisome and troubling thing.
I sit here waiting for Heaven’s down pouring
With no hope of seeing the sun;
Off in the distance thunder is roaring,
Oh why can’t this dreary day be done?

All suddenly, a patch of blue pries open the sky,
then there’s a hint of blue peaking through.
I close my eyes and thankfully sigh
as the ceiling above me turns all blue.

Tonight heaven displays her sequined gown,
All my uncertainties have been erased.
Every star in heaven is shining down,
and each one my joyous eyes have traced.
A full moon arc across the shimmering night
and it sets my wondering mind to yearning.
It truly is a spectacular and glorious sight
to witness it in its constant turning.

I rise and bid farewell to today’s display,
I am truly a happy and contented soul.
Tomorrow I will not question the day,
I will sit, and once again play my role.

God Knew Me Before I Was Born

God Knew Me Before I Was Born! God knew me, before I existed! He was there, before my name was listed! Before I was born, he had a divine plan! He was there, before I reached out my hand! Before I knew who I even was, or my name… His life for mine, way why his son came! Before I could put on my shoes and clothes… He had called me! It was I… That he chose! Before I was old enough to make up my own mind… He was there waiting! So patient and kind! Before I became an adult… I refused to believe! Whatever God offered... I didn’t want to receive! Before too long… I had my own family and home. But then family left me... And I was alone! Before God… I came, and cried and repented! The inside of my mind felt confused and tormented! Before I really knew what was actually going on… God reached inside and forgave me of past wrongs! Before the next day was coming about… I found a new love and peace throughout! Before God, I know that he’s changed me! I have found a new life for eternity! Won’t you come before God and accept him too? You’ll never know what he can do for YOU! By Jim Pemberton

SOUL

Soul:
An ever-glowing spark of
Divinity
Exiled on the eerie planes of
Materiality
Searching incessantly the path
Of return 
To its celestial home!

My desicion was made. I wouldn't allow myself to be controlled. If that makes me a rebel, then let it be. I'm a Rebel. At least I can Make my own choices now. I can love and care about others.

When i hit, it felt like everybone in my wings had shattered. I had fallen. and It hurt so bad. but it was worth it.

True Love Given Reflections of Love

Moments to Reflect
True Love

As I look up into the night sky, oh what a beautiful sight the stars shining are so bright. I think about my Lord and my heart swells and fills with so much joy that the Father of all has created such wonders in the heavens above. So much beauty, so much love.
This cause me to reflect upon my existence on this earth, why was I given birth, what is my purpose on this earth? These questions laid profoundly on my mind and brought tear to my eyes.

I got down on my knees and ask my Lord please explain it to me. From my heart came pouring out all of my thoughts along with all of my doubts.
To my lord I did say, what is it that you want from me, for I do the things that I do not want to do, and the things that I want to do, I cannot seem to do, why am I such a fool I feel like am doom?

What is wrong seems so right and doing what is right is so hard for me to do, am hurting so deep within all I want is this pain to end.
My life is filled with so many ups and down I cannot keep my feet on solid ground. I feel like am on a roller coaster and it headed hell bounded. I pray that this is not my fate it‘s Heaven’s gate that I seek and I pray that it not too late.

Then as the tears began to fall and my heart started to break; all of a sudden I felt this warm embraces. I have never in life expected such love, such comfort, or joy, and then suddenly all my pain was gone and I heard the angels singing a wonderful song. In my mind eye I could see my Lord and savior sitting on His throne looking at me.

He smile and said to me; life is worth living and this is why it was given, trials and tribulation are just part of the deal and I know that this is a bitter pill.
It in your nature to sin my child but this you can end if you walk in the light and let me come in. My yoke is easy and I make your burdens light so just ask me to forgive you of your sins for with me in your comer this fight you will win. 

Then you will be heaven bound and sin will never be able to hold you down. The guide if you decide to be at my side is written in my living words. Read them and heed them and satan will frown and you will no longer be hell bound.
Then the Lord said to me, I tell you this my little lamb,  I Am who I Am and I came into this world a long time ago, my Father sent me to earth to show His child the way. 
I became a living sacrifice and paid a debt that was not mine; so that you might find a way back home and be by my side. Rejoice; rejoice all is not lost, for I have paid the cost.

If you think that the star in the heavens are a wonderful sight; you now see what I see when I created thee. My love has no boundaries, it all for the asking if you put your faith in me. 

Trust in me with all of your heart and in this you will find the ultimate peace of mind. 
Bless you my little lamb your time was well spent praying to upon your knees. The seed has been planted and I will harvest the crops and separate the wheat from the weeds and cast them they into the lake of fire where them will suffer for all eternity. 
Having faith in me is well founded, Heaven or hell which will it be? Loving Me will set you free and guarantee you life for all eternity. This is true love that comes only from ME

Blessings Of A Child

A daughter is a heavenly gift,
Sent from up above,
Full of enightment and joy,
And she will always remain,
Your little girl,
And as beautiful as a dove.

If your blessed with a boy,
He is a blessing from God,
To be as handsome as his father,
To remind you of the days,
So, hold him closely and teach him well,
That he will know your ways.

No matter which one you have,
Whether it be a boy or a girl,
They are both heavenly gifts,
From up above,
Which may seem like,
A test from time to time,
However, always try to,
Remember the main thing,
You were blessed,
With a precious gift from God.

Not everyone has this gift,
And they become very heartless in life,
From time to time,
Cause they are jealous,
Of the people who are blessed,
With this precious gift from God,
So, they become hatred,
From time to time,
Instead of admiring the precious gift,
Which is a greater time in life,
And that is their greatest test.

Sail On Sail On

Sail on sail on my little
Turtle dove

Sail on through the rays
Of heaven paradise

Before darkness fill the sky

And the bells began to ring

Your journey will be at an

You are the little turtle dove
Of heaven baby angel

Time for you to descend to your

There's A God Who Loves YOU

There’s A God Who Loves You! In spite of what the courts and what people tell you… There is a God, who’ll always love you! No matter how courts try their best to remove him… His son reaches out to you! And wants you to trust him! No matter what the sacrifice, or what the cost… His son died for you! On an old rugged cross! No matter what you’ve heard, or who you listened… There’s an everlasting life that you’re missin’! No matter how many times you’ve caused sin and shame… You can find 100 percent forgiveness in Jesus’ name! No matter how many times that people have failed you… There is a God in heaven, who will always love you! Won’t you take the time, with no more postponement? And seek forgiveness in his blood’s atonement? The time is now, the opportunity is certainly here! Wherever you may go… God is always near! By Jim Pemberton

Artistry In The Evening Sky

While driving down a country road one eve,
I took a look up in the western sky;
The sight I saw was awesome to receive
As God’s artwork there met my watching eye.
The sun was shining through the scattered clouds
And making stairways with its brilliant rays.
I’d love to climb one if I were allowed,
Ascending I would sing my Savior’s praise.
Then as I turned to go there from the west,
The eastern sky was blackened with the rain,
And as I drove into it I was blessed
To see a rainbow’s color once again.
So brilliant was it on its canvas dark;
A dimmer one accompanied at its side.
So awed was I at this sight to embark,
With joy in voice to heaven then I cried.
No way could evolution draw this art!
I thought as through the pouring rain I went;
I know God gave that picture in my heart
Of the majestic colors that He spent.
A stairway up to heaven in sun’s rays,
A rainbow arc of color there so bright,
And just the thoughts of giving God the praise—
What artristy in evening sky that night!

God Will Never Disappoint You


God Will Never Disappoint You!

There’s something I want to say!  
And to make a point!
Those who trust God…  
He will never disappoint!

You can trust him, even if problems
 surround you!
What God can do for you,
 just may astound you!

Look through the Bible, 
and the prophets of old.
God never let them down,
 as I’ve been told!

His son Jesus, seeks to give life
 with a true meaning!
His faithfulness in your life, 
you can be receiving!

God will never let you down,
 no matter what you face!
He can make everything beautiful! 
With his love and grace!

Won’t you give him a chance
 and trust him today?
Trusting his promises, 
and the words he has to say!

He’s someone who’ll be with you
until life’s very end!
You can always count on him,
 and call him; “friend!”

Engineering a Kingdom

He told the tales     with likes and similes
human character          dressed as grass and trees
the fragility of life         just like a mist
as touched by divine spark       like children kissed
 
He drew attention         to earths everlasting beauty
and loving kindnesses            as worthy over duty
painted pictures           that a child's mind could see
and of the qualities             that would last eternity
 
Those he drew       were woman child and man
in parallels explained       Gods everlasting plan
a future government          by Gods own plan designed
choosing those who               like his Son in mind
 
The currant rulers here             described as beast
devour and make suffer          great to least
he implicated leaders           intentions as the cause
as having violated            all of the natural laws
 
He pointed out the signs              to tell the time
how earth and heaven         his plans to realign
where peace on earth           in every nation he will gain
with truth and everlasting            life they will maintain
 
Surprise          a life in heaven was not the plan for man
but he put us on the earth in a garden         understand
he intends this projects finish                by his Son
with those he has redeemed           to be the ones "to get er done"
 
I must advise you         those in the grave are dead
they will remain there          until the Son has said
he who has the keys of death           has them in mind
to resurrect upon the earth           in a future time
 
While Christendom adopted the    ideology of hell
the Teacher of the Truth       in sleep of death did tell
he called his friend            who was dead and in a grave
forth the example     of what his future rule will pave
 
How can you not get it      the things he plans to do
to eliminate on earth suffering           and all life renew
oh Shang gri La and Paradise            He plans for thee
where Man will live in Love             and joy in harmony

The Awaiting Gates

Careful of the things you think, do, or say,
Study His word and give Him daily praise.
He will come quickly in the clouds one day,
Don't be left behind, don't be made stay.

Two gates ARE waiting in the everlasting end,
Those without His word awaiting is Hell fire, torment, and pain.
Ask for his mercy with his heart all can be mend,
Those who accept God there's a Heaven waiting words cant fully explain.

A supernatural God can make many wonderful things,
Walking on golden streets next to a crystal sea.
All around you voices, angels, even flowers sing,
So get God in your heart that's the heavens gate key.

AFTER BENEDICTION

AFTER BENEDICTION

After the Golden Rule was taught;
In spirit, the cleric’s tongue was caught.
Like a pregnant cloud
Ready to perch on the Y-shaped crowd:
“You are blessed by Jehovah El-shaddai.
In you, everything of hell-shall-die
in the name of Him that’s above all men.
And the church will say”, “Amen”

But after benediction,
I consider it a spur, an inspiration:
Which accounts for ninety percent;
The remaining ten: my effort and bent.
With mercy and deft, I’ll part heaven’s clime
To usher in my perpetual lustrous time

But after benediction,
With my earthly intuition,
I eagerly chase my transient fame.
I adapted to a new aim.
Being mindful of how poverty afflicts,
I’m tired of chanting the chorus of derelicts.

But after benediction,
I always have a fresh eternity revelation,
But sooner forget the Calvary cost:
Even the words from the mighty pen of Frost
About ‘The Road Not Taken’
Wherein my foundation was shaken

But after benediction,
In a storm of confusion,
I straddle on moral fence---
After life’s exploit, whose presence?
Which fort – light or dark?
Which angels – white or black?

Fill Us Again

These days we all are just a bit more wiery ,
Even on common ground we have become leary.
  Trust is much harder to come by  these days,
Losing our faith has made us lose our way.
  Kindness & compassion a thing of the past,
Because of this love and Joy can not last.
  Smiles and laughter a rare thing to see ,
How I miss the way it use to be.
  We have become helpless and tolerant to unjust,
As we watch our hopes and dreams turn to dust.
  Discouraging words is all I am hearing anymore,
A little kindness and support would help for sure.
  It's sad as I sit here and see how we have all changed,
What makes it worse is that we are the blame.
  How to fix all  this and get us heading straight,
There is a way but fear it might be to late.
  If only we would take more time to pray,
It wouldn't be long before we found  our way.
  Becoming cold and heartless is what I've always feared,
I pray for our Lord to take us all away from here.
  Fill our hearts with love and joy again ,
We will follow you Lord forever Amen.

Will God Accept Me


Will God Accept Me?

I had nothing to offer to God but a life of  shame.
I was embarrassed of the mention of my name

I had nothing to offer to God but “failure.”
I didn’t know if he listened to me prayer?

I had a life that was just falling apart.
I often cried from a wounded heart.

I began to blame myself for things going wrong.
I began to feel like I didn’t belong.

I’d begin each day with a lot of stress and tension.
I didn’t feel any kind of love or appreciation.

Many of my friends began to “leave me behind.”
There wasn’t a single “friend” I could find!

Just when everything was falling around me...
Jesus was there!  His love began to surround me!

“Lord, please help me!” Where the words spoken.
My life was coming apart!,   And was empty and broken!

Jesus reached down and took a hold of my hand!
And told me everything I went through...  He understands!

Day by day he brought to me a peace I never knew!
Putting my life back together was what he wanted to do!

As I read his word, his spirit renewed my mind.
A precious friend in HIM…  I was able to find!

He accepted me! And gave so much more!
He truly is what living my life is meant for!

He is and will always be the Lord for me!
And can do the same for you!  Most certainly!

If Christ Came Today

If Jesus came today...
Would you join him!
Or would your lifestyle
simply annoy him?

If he came...  Are you ready to go?
Is he the lord of your
heart and soul?

Would he find you looking
for his coming?
What kind of follower
have you been becoming?

Hopefully a follow of Jesus,
you’ve already decided!
A mansion for you, in heaven,
has been provided!

The king of kings and son
Of God is he!
And wants to take you!
For all eternity!

Won’t give him your faith
and trust in him?
Won’t you give him your heart?
And love him?

His coming could be today
or tomorroe!
You don’t want to be missed!
And be filled with sorrow!

Jesus is the gate to heaven above!
You can be filled right now!
With his mercy and love!

Won’t you join Jesus?
There’s alwaysl room!
He’s coming back!
And very soon!

God's Writing On the Wall



There was a city of Babylon whom
King Belshazzar ruled...
Till that one night, when he became “fooled.”

“Eat drink and be merry.”
Was the motto of the day!
But God had something else, he wanted to say! 

The finger of God reached down
And wrote on the wall!
The prophet of God told the king, 
his kingdom would fall!

The king panicked and later that night…
His kingdom fell…  Without a fight! 

May this be a lesson and a warning to us today!
We need to listen to God!
And what he has to say! 

Our country may “enjoy”  it’s wickedness and sin!
But one day soon!  It will
be coming to an end!

Won’t you allow the writing of God,
to touch your heart’s door?
It was for me and you, that our savior died for!

God loves you more, than you’ll ever know!
He came to earth to redeem your soul!

Seed of Birth

Moments to Reflect
Seed of Birth
After a summer shower I watch the wonders unfold Gods truth is being shown. His love for all shall be known to all who have eyes that can see. The miracle of life that is a delight to behold can be seen in a drop of rain on the end of a leaf. Sparkling like a diamond in the light, more precious than gold, a secret is told. The water of life, without it we cannot go on the earth would be has dry has a bone. A desert: a waste land as hot as Hades and not fit to be called home. The water of life He is known. 
The air so sweet and clean the breath of life He has been called. A blessing from the father it is a Gift given to us all. When the air can been seen it is unclean and in this state I call it satans breathe, oh so foul and within it only death can be found. 
Flower and trees, grass that is so green that there is not any artist in the world that could paint a more beautiful scene. Concrete streets and black top parking lots; progress is what it is called…maybe not. An eyesore, mans’ master piece his legacy, beauty it’s not. 
Like a spring rain or after a summer shower; new life does salvation brings. Like the morning dew shining like tiny jewels, in the sunshine they do glow.  Flowers blooming and life a renewing, with Jesus this is how salvation goes.
Rain can be seen as the world being baptized and cleansed, purifying it of mankind sins. This is a fresh beginning but it not at its end it only truth starts when you ask Jesus to come in.  
After a gentle rain shower our God reminds humanity of His power and His promise: rainbow in the sky a wonderful, magical miracle, truly a delightful sight. His signature written in the sky, proof that He tells no lies; never again with water will He end the world that has bought to Him so much pain. His tears of sadness, never again will the world end with rain. 
The evil one try his best with his temptation and his tests to cause us to die and never to rise; humanity he do hate want to take all with him into that fiery lake. These are the tools of his trade war and strife adding in a touch of worldly lust doing his best to kill our trust in the Lord who has given us so much. The spiritual war is what we are in do not fall for satan schemes. Heaven or hell which one will it be? Like the sun gives life to flower, the Son gives life to all who follows. He who is free is free in deed.
Christ the savior God did send, it shows us that satan cannot win. Like a summer day after a spring rain new life will begin. He will pardon us of all our sins but you must ask him to come in His forgiveness know no end. Open your heart and let Him in then and only then can you win. In Him salvation is guarantee and a new life can begin; so you must choose Heaven or hell where will you spend eternity in? 
God our Father gave His Son to the world so that we would have a path to the truth a light to shine in the darkest of time. Allow His attributes to shine forth you do not would to lose your soul. Before time ever begin He love us, will you not trust in Him sight unseen, the One who gives all life meaning?
All it takes is faith to bypass that fiery lake, because tomorrow is not promise and another sunshine you may not see. Time is on no one side, so do not go chasing rainbows you cannot fly. Keep what real in your mind the reality is sin must die. God give His Son to pay a price that He did not owe, the cost was high, but gift that is given for those who believe; is to be by His side, salvation is free are you ready to receive?
Summer shower and gentle breeze,
Golden flower and dew drops of leaves.
Soft green grass beneath your feet.
                    The only thing sweeter is than life is living with Jesus for all eternity.

Jesus Died for Everyone

Jesus Died For Everyone! Jesus died on the cross for you me! So we can be with him throughout eternity. His life for ours… A ransom was paid IN FULL! Through his shed blood, we’re made whole! Upon his head were placed the crown of thorns. Enduring so much ridicule and scorn. The blood from his body as it began to flow. His love for mankind clearly showed! Nails were placed through his feet and hands! The pain he went through, is hard to understand. His life for ours, is what he gave! A way to eternal life, in heaven, has been made! By Jim Pemberton

What If Christmas Never Came


 UNSUPPORTED CODE What If…   Christmas Never Came???

What if Christmas never happened?  
What if Christmas never came?
Things around here would be different! 
It wouldn’t be the same!

What if the baby Jesus was never born in a manger?
Mankind would be in serious trouble. We’d all be in danger!

If the baby Jesus wasn’t born.  There would be no nativity.
We wouldn’t be able to display this during our “festivity.”

It’s almost like this now! 
 It’s an “ever increasing business.”
It seems like nearly everyone wants
  “Christ out of Christmas!”

Why does it seem like Christmas is 
 losing it’s true meaning?
The very words; “Merry Christmas,” 
seem to be quickly disappearing!

Many say; “Happy Holiday.”  
They worry they may “offend.”
Having a “holiday” without Christ….  
Once again!

We need to put Jesus Christ back into 
our CHRISTmas season!
He is what Christmas is about!  HE is the very reason!

May we all take some time to rejoice in our savior’s birth.
May there be shouts of JOY!  From the corners of the earth!

Let’s not take Christ out of our joyous celebration!
We need him so much right now! 
 All over this great nation!

May we bring to him a heart of love
 for everything he’s done.
As we bring honor to Christ.  God’s precious son!

May we continually offer to him a heart filled with praise!
Not only at Christmas time…  But all of our days!

Humility

I find it odd that as soon as I asked for forgiveness for my sins
they all came back on me - tenfold.  My seemingly 'bad' luck was caused
only by what I did to others against the will of the Lord.
When I honestly repented for the wrongs I had done, 
I didn't ask for ev'rything to go haywire, but that's exactly what happened,
because I hadn't tried to rectify my behaviors.  I tried to run from them,
and act like I'd ne'er really done anything wrong.  I tried to shield myself
from them behind a wall of lies that only created more lies.
Instead of facing up to what I'd done, and try to fix it,
I thought it would all just go away because I wanted to turn my life around
and be a better person.  I realize now that by hiding behind the hand of the Lord
I only got slapped in the face even harder.  I showed no respect for the laws of God
or the land I live in, so I got blown apart by the bomb I lit so long ago.
It's time I stop running, and face up to what I've done.  Only if I'm willing to do this
will the Lord show mercy on me.  I must apologize, and pay the price -
even if in secret.  Only then will the landslide that I created rush into the sea,
and be squelched by my honesty.  Once I take this step, all will be well again,
and I will be able to live my life in peace, knowing that I have done all I can
to right my wrongs.  And, when I die, the gates of Heaven will open wide,
and accept me unflinchingly.  Then I'll truly know I've been forgiven.

May I Tell Others About Jesus

Jesus, Help Me to Tell Others About YOU!

Jesus, help me to tell others about you today.
Please help and give me the words to say.

The love you’ve given to me.  
You want me to share it!
The burden that I carry...  I alone cannot bear it!

I need your grace to help me to stay humble.
Especially when I begin to complain and grumble!

In this cruel and evil world, be my guiding light!
I know that with you, things will be alright.

You’ve given to me a love that can’t be contained.
May others know the beauty
 there is in your name!

May my heart be filled with a compassion for the lost.
May I not forget to keep my eyes on the cross!

Help me Lord to give others hope, when there is none.
A new person in Jesus, any person can become one!

You, sweet Jesus, are the reason that I’m here.
You bring a love to everyone that’s very sincere!

Thank you dear lord, for helping me!  I’m not strong!
You’ll be there with me, when things seem to go wrong.

I shall speak of your salvation and love wherever I go!
That your spirit, through me, will reach the lost souls!

I will share of this wonderful savior who is mine…
Now is the day of salvation!  Now is the time!

I Am Going Home

I’m looking for my home That’s where I wanna be It’s not a place that I own Nor that I can even see Home is where I’ve never been But I know that it’s there Something tells me from within It’s not a place around here In any house that I may live It’s never really home for me Just a storage room and a bed And a place for my company I’m getting closer to my home I can feel it in every day I guess I should’ve known This life vacation wouldn’t stay When I finally get home My days will be filled with time From the past my thoughts have grown Deep within my mind At home there will be peace And never will I need For the wanting will soon cease Without a thought of greed Yes, I’m going home I know the time is here Should I have to go alone I will certainly find myself there!

Divine Intervention

Divine Intervention, for me truly does exist.
 For I've been shown it in a true state of bliss.
As I jumped my mini bike off a small ledge,
 then to the handlebars, went my un-helmeted head.
I flipped over the handlebars landing in some sand,
 my friends told me the accident, truly was quite grand.
They carried me in the house and laid me in my bed,
 little did they know, that I soon would be dead.

Leaving my body in a tunnel made of light,
 to anyone who experiences this, it is truly out of sight.
Landing on a pathway, unsure of where to go.
 I took a good look around, even looked down at my toes.
Looking down a pathway, at a tree shimmering of gold,
 I then looked down at the grass to enjoy feeling it with my toes.
The weight of the world off my shoulders did fall,
 all the problems I had in life, I could no longer feel at all.

As a glowing being came up to me from behind,
 and said to me softly," Dan, it's not your time."
I said "No, I want to stay here with you in this blissful place!"
  Though I was unable to recognize the look of that persons face.
They said, "No, for you it is not your time."
 "To the earth you must return, until a future date and time."
Again, I said "No!" and then turned to run,
 though as they touched my shoulder, my time there was done.

As I was yelling "No!" back into my body I was thrown,
 then I sat straight up in my bed still yelling "No!"
With a sharp pounding pain that burst from my head,
 amazed at what just happened, I realized I was dead.
Then I went upstairs to see my friends all sitting around,
 and I told them I went to heaven, but I was then thrown back down.
I guess what a couple moments in heaven, back on earth was a couple hours.
And the distance you fall from, is taller than our tallest towers.

So I'll now let you decide, if this intervention was truly divine.
For me it was a life changing experience, I'll keep telling until the end of time.

THE UNWANTED CORNERSTONE

secrets of wisdom yet to be told,
the fruit of the spirit yet to be shown.
foundation on the brink of success,
fire of inspiration with no limit.
divine intervention with no discrimination,
understanding with divine deeper intentions.
showered by humility and true faith,
with no false pretense of twisted fate.
holding down every lesson,
no matter how it could be a thorn.
focus on a positive drive,
striving with no strife.
always thinking of other's before you,
always linked of trying to atone.
never missing what is important,
going back to first love of being a servant.
never wanting anything in return,
genuine surrendering yet to learn.
remembering Jesus as the only light that bends for us,
for forgiveness comes hand in hand with mercy and trust.
so was the cornerstone that lived to lift up...............

The Revelation

"I saw heaven standing open 
and there before me was a white horse…" 

Revelation 19:11 

I’ve talked to many a good man 
facing his own end 
And pretty much they all wonder 
about the same thing 
Will passing thru that final gate 
put an end to things we love 
Will we all hang up our cowboy rigging 
when we see the dove. 

And, well I’ve begun to wonder 
when I’m called before the throne 
And stand and face my deeds on earth 
and do my best to atone 
As I stand there in Stetson hat 
and rusty, bent spurs 
Will I be bunched with the righteous 
or will I be corralled with the curs. 

But, then I’m a wondering, 
what about my way of life? 
Will I still be a cowboy, 
will my way be filled with strife? 
Will I have to sell my saddle?   
Will I give up my puncher ways? 
If I can’t cowboy, 
how will I fill up my heavenly days? 

But, then I remember reading in Revelation, 
chapter 19, eleventh verse 
And my heart is filled with happiness, 
ain’t no reason now to curse. 
Cuz the good book tell us all, 
we’ll be cowboying up in paradise 
Riding herd for the real King Ranch, 
punching cows and doing right. 

Cus it’s written in the Bible, 
you all can now stay the course 
“I saw heaven standing open 
and there before me was a white horse” 
So, I’ll grab my old saddle 
and swing it up on that critter's back 
And ride that heavenly range forever, 
me, that white horse and my old kack.

Christ Wants to Be With Us


Christ Wants to Be With Us! In all of Christ’ glory and splendor… He died, that I may live with him forever! He came down and lived with sinful men… To one day be the sacrifice for sin! He came to earth… No matter the cost… He bled and died on the old rugged cross. He came to die for you and me! Only to cry; “father, why have you forsaken me?” He gave his life for mine! The price was paid! A way to heaven… Through him… Was made! He gave his life! What more could he give! He’s so patient and willing to forgive! He’s here! And is waiting for you! He offers salvation! What will you do? He shall always love us! Can’t you see? He wants to be with us! For eternity! By Jim Pemberton

Praises to HIM alone

To HIM alone be all praises 
HE is the HE who knows all 
I AM THAT I AM HE is called 
HE knows the beginning to the end 
HE knows the end from the beginning. 

How do I begin to thank You LORD? 
For all Your goodness in my life 
I am called blessed for You bless me 
I am victorious for You are my victory 
The things You do are marvellous. 

Who is like unto You Great ONE? 
When You Open no one can close 
When You Close no one dare open 
Your Yes comes without no to it 
In Your No one can attach yes. 

You are the BIGGEST when we talk size 
You are the WIDEST when space is the case 
The HIGHEST when we look at height 
You are truly an Immeasurable being 
You are truly an Incomparable being. 

To You I give all the GLORY
To You I give all the HONOUR 
To You I give all the ADORATION 
Nothing I give that will be enough 
For You OWN the whole world.

I Imagine Heaven

I imagine what heaven will be like.
I imagine skies so blue,
Glistening like diamonds set in the sky.
The sun shining so brightly,
Offering its warmth to me.
I imagine lush green meadows,
Whispering to me:
“Come, lay down, and rest awhile”
The trees, so large and so full of color,
Some offering luscious fruits,
I can see the flowers with all their hues,
Like precious jewels scattered everywhere.
Bursting with colors like an artistic canvas.
And their fragrance, overwhelms my senses,
Fills the air with their heavenly aroma.
Oh, I cannot leave out those beautiful animals.
They are so gentle, so marvelous.
I can lay with them and feed them.
I call to them and they come to play.
I imagine the waters,
Clear as crystals, fresh and sweet.
I imagine the streets will be of gold,
For my Father only gives the best.
What about the people?
I imagine Adam and Eve,
Noah and Jonah, and so many more,
Along with loved ones and dear ones,
At my home designed by my Father,
Sharing food, fun, love and laughter.
Most of all;
I imagine my Father and I,
Walking together in the garden.
His gentle face looks at me,
He holds my hand,
He gently speaks to me.
We sing songs together and laugh together.
My family comes to join us.
Wow, how very blessed I am.
Oh, how I imagine what heaven will be like.
He’s at the gate,
His angels surround Him,
His arms open wide,
He tells me,
Welcome home my Child.

Am I Concerned for the Lost

Am I Concerned for the Lost?

For the lost souls…
Am I concerned like I should be?
While many slip into eternity!

With each day that passes me by…
There’s another lost soul
That will die!

I’m too busy to give 
  my time to anyone.
I’ll never be able to reach everyone!

I’ve never led a person in
 the sinner’s prayer.
“Why should I waste my time?”
 “Why should I care?”

I know that Jesus wants
me to reach the lost...
But I’ve never thought about
what this would cost!

I know that Jesus
Is the atonement for sin!
And invites all, to be born again!

May I have a desire
 to reach the lost souls!
If one day, I plan to make
 heaven my goal!

With God’s help,
I pray there will be…
People in heaven, because of
HIM loving through me!

Goodbye to an Austin Angel

She was headed off to college at 18 years old,
News of the crash leaked out, and the mood turned cold.
She was the best person you could ever know,
When she danced with her team she put on a show.
Recently in Ohio, I found this rock,
With its angelic shape I found this cross-walk.
In the crosswalk I found my old best friend,
If only my heart could find a way to mend.
As a young country singer once sang, 
“18 years have come and gone,”
It’s hard at this point, it’s hard to move on,
I guess it’s time to move down the line,
I need a reassuring sign to ease my mind. 
Goodbye my friend, may heaven treat you well,
In the past, I will no longer dwell.
Hello my guardian angel, you are my eyes,
For you are with God, and He is wise.
Goodbye Tracie Lynn, you made people smile,
I’ll be there for you after a while.

HALLELUJAH I'm On the Winning Side

Hallelujah!  I’m on
 the winning side!
Jesus is victorious!  
And pushed back the evil tide!

Hallelujah!  Jesus has given
 me an assurance.
Living for him…  Is the best
 “life insurance!”

HIS policy is FREE!  It asks 
that you serve him!
Won’t you come?  
And take time to know him?

His eternal insurance is life
 that’s everlasting!
“Come follow me!” 
 Is what he’s asking!

I’m thankful to know of the choice
 I’ve made!
A way to eternity, through Christ,
 has been paid!

Calling

Calling

Father God is calling
He’s calling you by name,
He’s calling through confusion
And He’s calling through your pain

He’s calling through your loneliness
And through your sorrow too,
Father God is calling
He’s calling out to you

He calls through the destruction
He calls you through your shame,
His call cuts through the wreckage
And wipes out every stain

His call is not mistaken 
For any earthly sound,
And all the lost that heed the call
Will then become the found

For when the Father calls you
His call will not relent,
His call continues, tireless
He calls you to repent

God’s call brings down the mighty
God’s call lifts up the meek,
But do not be mistaken 
God’s call is never weak

His call lifts up the feeble arms
And strengthens trembling knees,
Turns cowards into mighty men
His call sets captives free

Now you don’t have to listen
It’s up to you to choose,
But turn your back – ignore His call,
You’re guaranteed to lose

God’s call can heal your sickness
His call can make you well,
He’s crying out to save you
From eternity in hell
This call can make you holy 
And lead you into grace,
He calls you to his throne room
And meets you face to face

Father God is calling
Through all that you’ve done wrong,
His call will break your aching heart
And place inside a song

His call can be a still, small voice
Or frighteningly loud,
God’s call lifts up the humble,
And humbles all the proud

Now what will your decision be?
What exactly will you do?
For Father God is calling,
He’s calling now for you.

BLACK MADONNA

   Do you know of the icon of "The Black Madonna"?
   She is the Patron of Poland to this day.
   It is not the icon I write about
   But, the young Maiden, Who is 'Queen of Heaven" today.

   Her name is Mary, the Virgin Mother of Christ
   Whose intercessions for us I seek each day.
   The turmoil in our world could perhaps be averted
   If we beseech Her help on our way.

   We know that She is not only an historical figure
   As we, so often think of Jesus Her Son.
   She is a living, gentle, caring person
   Amongst those, whose hearts She has won.

   She has shrines devoted to Her in many places
   Lourdes, Fatima, Chestochowa, and Medjugorjie too.
   Places where She has appeared to others
   That we may know that Her words are true.

   Although you may not be a believer
   One day, we shall find Her pleading our case.
   Before the Son She brought into this world
   That from us, He should not turn His face.

   I know that some, whose beliefs are far from mine
   May scoff and take offense at these words that I write.
   But for me to deny my own beliefs
   Could never my heart make right.

   So, today I write about this Eternal Woman
   To Whom my prayers each day include.
   For Her comforting spirit I pray for all
   Whether Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, or Hindu.

   My faith in Her is something that I must have
   To get me through the trials of each day.
   Though undeserving of Her love that I am
   For it, I quietly pray.

   I waned to write about Her strength, humility, and obedience
   And of Her acceptance when the Angel came to call.
   I often wish that I could be more like Her
   Instead of the person that I have been to all.

   She had the humility to be obedient
   And the strength to see it through.
   I am too proud and rarely listen
   Because of my weaknesses which are obvious to you.

   So, I now ask each one of you
   Of whatever belief you may be.
   To include a prayer to the Lord above
   For Her, to help strengthen me.

   If your words are clear and pure of heart
   Please think of me and pause...
   That they will be heard in Heaven above
   To benefit my soul's undeserving cause.

   Perhaps, one day I will find "The Black Madonna"
   Not as depicted, in Her shrine to see.
   But, in Her place in Heaven on high
   Where Her gentle love may one day comfort me.

Supreme Dream

I had a dream
It reigned supreme
of any dream I've had before
Bathed in light
and taking flight
I had flew to a distant shore

My wife was there
knelt down in prayer
and enveloped by a glow
I heard a voice
that said rejoice
The Lord God has saved her soul

She prays for you,
your children too;
and she has since she arrived
Release your guilt
that you have built
because God let you survive

God called her home
and now has shown
that she's in a better place
If you my friend
had met your end
This is not what you would face

If you could see
what hell will be
you would die while still in sleep
With just a glance
you lose the chance
to escape the fiery deep

When you awake
you must forsake
the sin you have always knew
Just like your wife
Give God your life
The life Jesus bought for you

When I awoke
my spirit broke
and I fell down to my knees
With sobbing prayer
I pleaded there
Lord forgive me please

Yes, I had a dream
It reigned supreme
of any dream I've had before
It saved my life
and I'll see my wife
Someday on that distant shore.

You're Important to God

You’re important to God!  And he knows it!
He wants to be with you!  His word shows it!

Your life belongs to God!  Yes it does!
He died for you!  It’s you that he loves!

Your life is precious of God!  Yes it is!
He wants to be with you, each day you live

Your life is just a heartbeat away!
From allowing God to change you today!

Your life is but a brief moment in time!
Won’t you take time for God?
  So merciful and kind!

Your life can be touched this very hour!
By God’s love and healing power!

Your life for his!  A choice can be made!
This is beautiful!  And worth the trade!

HIS life brings peace and hope within!
The beauty of him, forgiving your sin!

HIS life for yours, is what he gives in exchange!
You can find all you need, in HIS sweet name!

Am I Near Heaven

Am I Near Heaven.
A little boy and his went for a walk on Wednesday.
They came up on a big mountain that touch the sky.
The little boy said," we are going to climb up there today!"
                The dog barked.
They climbed for miles and miles. Up and up. Towards the sky
When they where almost to the top. He looked down to see the town.
As they climbed higher and higher the town became smaller and smaller.

When they got to the top. All they could see was clouds.
He could hear the birds below but no trees he could see.
He turn to his dog, a friend indeed, he asked with a look of need,"  Am
I near Heaven?"
   For just days ago his mother had died. and he wanted to be near..

WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?

I thought life was only 
bad and good moments 
that kept changing seats
I thought heaven was a metaphore 
and that happiness was made of 
some exceptional moments 
I thought we should fight for 
a better work, money, food, clothes 
and that silence could be respectful 
But bad moments are not bad 
when we decide for the good ones 
and heaven is to love and to be loved in return 
Happiness is how we feel 
when we are complete 
even when we are sad. 
We must fight for nothing but peace 
and silence is never, never, respectful 
Each word we don't say 
is a missed opportunity.

Jesus Extends A Heavenly Invitation

Jesus Extends A Heavenly Invitation!

Christ has made a way to heaven! You can be with him!
He's done all of this... So that you can know him!

He died on a cross.   A sacrifice has already been paid.
A way for you to be in heaven has been made!

The blood of Jesus is the ticket for a heavenly ride!
With Christ as the conductor, you’re on the winning side!

He is the only way there is!  On a heavenly route!
It’s only through his salvation!  This is what it’s about!

Please come now!  Won’t you accept the Lord’s invitation?
You can, at this moment, have a Holy Spirit visitation!

Time is running out!  Make your time well spent.
This is the time to come before Jesus and repent!

Your life, for his, is the best trade you’ll ever do!
You can be changed, and have your life renewed!

You’re trip to heaven can begin this very day!
Jesus has left his instructions.  Simply trust and obey!

An abundant life with Jesus can certainly begin.
By having a relationship and serving him!

A new life in heaven is available for you and me!
We can be with Christ! For all eternity!

Out of the Mist

Like a spirit bathed in a soft warm light 
You stepped out of the ethereal mist. 
Your beckoning smile 
I could not resist. 

Your presence was overwhelming, 
And engulfing my senses, 
Shattering my world 
And destroying my defenses 

You reached out your hand 
And as I held it in mine, 
I felt the power of your glory 
And knew the meaning of divine 

Your touch was so tender
 It made my heart weak, 
My body felt limp 
And I could not even speak 

You looked deep in my soul 
With eyes so calm and so clear, 
Searching for my truth 
And all I held dear. 

You found my very essence 
And the core of my existence 
And with unyielding trust 
I offered no resistance. 

I gave myself freely 
With faith and with love, 
For I knew in my heart 
You were a being from above.

A SOUL JOURNEYS HOME

Soaring through the galaxies my soul takes flight 
like a shooting star it explodes into  the air
Illuminating it like fireflies in the night
as  the knight of darkness recedes into despair.


Hypnotic sounds of swirling gases like  heavenly organs 
fail to placate the quivering of my soul
as Heaven bound it clings to the bell -like voices of angels
    guiding it home.

As a drowning man grasps at a straw my soul reaches out 
then close to the gates of Heaven is encircled in prisms of light .
Finally on a crimson tide it's borne away to Paradise.

Won't You come In Jesus' Name

Won’t you come in Jesus’ name?
And allow him to remove your shame?

Won’t you come and bow down before him?
And give him your praise? Worship and adore him?

Won’t you come?  Your name, he’s calling!
The time is now!  There’s no need for “stalling.”

Won’t you come, and let him refresh you!
He wants to change and really bless you!

By his blood, your sins can disappear!
His love for you is very evident and clear!

By his word, you can be made brand new!
You can be changed, and totally renewed!

By the time this day is over and ended…
Your life can be forgiven and “amended!”

By the time you may  feel like you’re alone…
Why not invite him to be the lord of your home!

By the time you think about how you’re living…
You can receive all, that God is giving!

Come one and all!  And sit at Jesus’ feet!
Only his love can make your life complete!

UNTITLED

When this here old life is finally over
and I am no longer part of this sinful world,
My Savior will gladly welcome me on over
to my heavenly home on the streets of gold.
While here on earth all the tears I have shed
along with my enemies scandalizing my name,
Once I am up in Heaven I will have no more to dread
because all of that will have changed.
My many loved ones that have gone on before me
will welcome me with open arms,
And all of the angels of Heaven will be joyously singing
and I will finally hear my Savior say: "My faithful servant, well done!"

My Shepherd

I was but a little lost sheep, 
who laid down by the river to sleep.
My Shepherd walked across the water, 
to rescue me for keeps.
He picked me up when I faltered
and washed my sins away.
He made me white as snow, 
with the blood he freely gave.
He is more precious than gold, 
for he died on the cross for my salvation, 
so that I may bow before God in humble adoration.

I SEE HEAVEN OVER THERE.


I see heaven over there
The lights of glory 
Do not despair
Tell my friends 
I’ll meet them there
I see heaven over there.


My daddy has gone to be with Jesus
Walking on streets of gold
Granddaddy is singing 
With the saints of old,
Jesus is still the son of God
God still holds us in his hands

I see heaven over there
The lights of glory 
Do not despair
Tell my friends 
I’ll meet them there
I see heaven over there.

Angels surround as on our journey we go.
Mothers and fathers praying for our children
Brothers and sisters traveling Gods way
Call on Jesus everyday
He is your friend 
Ask him to be your savior
So you too can see heaven over there


I see heaven over there
The lights of glory 
Do not despair
Tell my friends 
I’ll meet them there
I see heaven over there.

I know

We All Make Mistakes in Life
 this I've Come to Know
 but All the Mistakes I've Made
 Have Somehow Helped Me Grow.
 
 No One I Know Is Perfect
 I Happen to   Know this Too
 I Am Very Very Sorry
 I Am Not Perfect for You.
 
 I've Searched for Perfect All My Life
 for Someone Who Had All the Love
 I Found it Not Long Ago...
 It Came from up Above.
 
 When All the Earthly Things Are Gone
 and  I Have Nothing Left but My Soul
 I Will Bask in Heavens Light
 and this I Also Know.

The Visit

11:21 PM 9/27/01                         The Visit

I sit in splendor amongst the sun
Of an afternoon sky

Surrounded
I look below to see the stones
Skyward proud they stand

Some I know, most imagined
All the quieter now

Deer travel the fringes here
Off to the East a bit
Never to offend these resting souls
Passersby in life

In a moment of silence I sit......
Remembering 
How precious life can be

How voices no longer heard
Can resound within the soul
Lighten the sky in brilliance
Form clouds in shapes of love

Me in the afternoon sun
And you in my beating heart

A reflection of the day

When I Think of Heaven

When I Think Of Heaven…
I think of heaven and what a beautiful place it must be.
An opportunity to be with Jesus for all eternity!

I think of the billions that have gone on before me.
And realize that Christ has made a way for me!

Through Christ’ death on the cross, a way was made.
Because of his blood, the price was paid!

Jesus affirmed a life with him, through his resurrection!
Because of him, anyone’s life can be in a new direction!

HIS direction leads to a glorious gift of salvation.
He’s here now, and offers a heavenly invitation!

Whosoever will, let him come and receive life eternal!
Through Jesus, anyone can be written in heaven’s journal!

The promise of a mansion in heaven is for all to receive!
All can put their faith in Christ…  And simply believe!

Jesus loves us much more than we can ever know.
And has planned an eternal home, for the soul!

Blessed be HIS name!  For the new life he has given!
He offers to all mankind a NEW way of livin’!

Through Christ, the gates of heaven are open…
And through him, death’s grip has been broken!

Heaven is a wonderful place!  Please don’t miss out!
Read the Bible and find what it’s all about!

Dominion

Therein to link the world her seasons with our light distain
made plain the movement through them let her darkness there remain
towards the call of fellowship whose mastery is True
transformation is Just beginning whose personality is made New

Your hand Oh Lord upon them and clothe them as your own
instruction unto diligence till they all be grown
you lead them to the Father and so by him be known
opened minds to understanding all that you have shown

Lord you are and Master of Law and universe
upon the heavens and fields of earth there do you traverse
to collect the sacrifices that to your God do give
those who will lay down their lives so that others therein live

For what is Love but sacrifice so another can have joy
this is the requirement that Jesus disciples do employ
for him they are in service as the God of Loves envoy
those who gain the mastery will be like Jesus a viceroy

They've named them gods through history whose power has been nil
but Jesus demonstrated energy that is never standing still
to gods of gold of wood of stone to truth they draw not near
the requirement of the Love thy neighbor they do not hold dear

Those who pretend at reverence and ritual do fool
who worship not in spirit and truth who are but adversaries tool
upon them bind a heavy burden and stray from shining light
there guide them into a pit and grave of eternal night

For you have finely numbered those who be your own
those whose number can't be counted find the earth as home
and quoth the spirit against those that be gods named
who have fouled the Truth and the God of Heaven shamed

For God has changed from stone children to Abraham
the meek and the righteous ones to inherit the given land
like the rains of Truth from empyrean do fall
the seven spirits of the church have sent out the call

Jah did empty Heaven of the Bright and Morning Star
upon his wings did send the message to collect those near and far
For God himself did offer his own Son the sacrifice
to set us free from sin and guilt and embedded vice

For the fields are ripened and soon the sickle thrust
the angel who can read our hearts those corrupt or just
restless is the beast and his dominion over man
those who worship devils are marked in head and hand

again unable to post whole piece
to finish this ...www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=380015400980

No Fear

I do not shudder at the thought of my passing
For my Lord has promised me life everlasting
Death will seem to have fulfilled its endeavor
But instead, I'll be more alive than ever

I need not fear the icy kiss of death
At that moment when I take life's last breath
For the Lord Jesus Christ will usher me home
In His loving arms, I won't be alone

In those last final moments, He'll come to my side
And gently lead me to where I'll abide
Warmly embraced in His loving care
Forever and ever in Heaven so fair

Here's just a little glimpse of what Heaven is like
No sorrows, no tears, carefree as a tike
Pure joy and happiness that will never end
Wouldn't you like to have a part in this, my friend?

Do you have the same peace and assurance as I
To carry you through on the day that you die?
For the time will come,  just as sure as you were born
So it's crucial, today, to get right with the Lord

If you choose to reject Him, let this be your warning:
You choose an eternity of sorrow and mourning
An unending state of torturous dying
Apart from God's love, you'll be moaning and crying

He patiently waits, but please don't delay
Make your Creator also your Savior, today
Repent of your sins, His forgiveness you'll receive
Give Jesus your heart, trust and believe

He's our Mediator to God the Father
There's no other way, so don't even bother
Take no heed to false religions of today
For those counterfeit beliefs claim to show the way

But Jesus says He is the Life, the Way, the Truth
That He has risen from the dead is the living proof
So ask, and He'll be with you at your final breath
How wonderful it is to have no fear of death!

Won't You Come to God


Won’t you seek God with all of your heart? Getting on your knees in prayer is a good place to start! Come close to God and he'll come close to you. His word will be your guide in what you do. Hunger for his righteousness... and be filled! Drawing close to Jesus is what God has willed! He desires an intimate love... more than words can say! Come to him now... with no more delay! Trust him with all of your heart... not your own understanding. In everything...acknowledge him... and heed his commanding! Obey his command to serve with body, soul and mind. Everlasting peace and love you will surely find! His desire for you to know and love him is never ending. Come to him now... please... no more "pretending." Won’t you reach out today… and call on his name? His love for you is forever and will never change! Won’t you allow him to bring joy and pure delight? Please come to him now… Why not tonight?

Priceless Treasure

Priceless Treasure “44 The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” Matt 13:44 NIV God’s word in a priceless treasure When its wisdom is found But few bother to search And be taken to higher ground They follow the teachings of man Because that’s so easy Don’t ask the Holy Spirit Rather tend to seek the clergy. There’s nothing like a soul Whose honestly searching to find The truth of man’s existence And his future by God designed. To search the pages of God’s word Is to seek for Priceless Treasure That can be found therein In unequalled joy a measure. Heaven must be frustrated To see how casual we can be Not bother about our future So self-engrossed in this life’s flurry Did you know we’ve been given All the wisdom that we need To live a life of worth And to heaven can accede? If the kingdom of heaven Is like hidden treasure Why are we not all searching Diligently at any length and any measure? I guess it’s because we’re deluded To the seriousness of sin And think that regardless, We still have a chance, eternity to win. Copyright © 2009-2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

The Savior's Voice

My dear friend don’t you hear
The Savior’s voice who holds you dear
He’s calling you from heaven above
He sent his Spirit as a dove
To tell of judgment and convict of sin
And make a way to enter in
To his kingdom and his good graces
To sit in Christ in heavenly places
The door is open don’t delay
The time is now, today’s the day
God is love we can all agree
But there’s another side you need to see
A Day is coming called Judgment Day
When Heaven and earth will flee away
To the rocks and hills man will cry aloud
Fall on us and become our shroud
Every idle word you say
You’ll account for on Judgment Day
You must decide what you will do
The Savior’s voice is calling you.

The Invitation

Heaven or hell, which place will it be?
We were given a choice when He hung on sins tree.
Why do you linger brother of mine?
Your life could soon end without any sign. 

From dust you once came and shall return,
Don't chance your soul to forever burn.
The small voice you hear is calling to you,
Don't let this chance pass to start life anew.

Though your body will rest in a cold, dark grave,
 Your soul will live on so don't be Satan's slave.
The Devil will tell you that you've plenty of time,
But God said try the spirits and see which is mine.

While Christians are praying let Him come in,
There's rejoicing in heaven when one's born again.
There's a Heaven to gain and a hell to shun,
You can't get to the Father except through the Son.

Remembering Thee

The heaven and earth with all that is found in them.
I am ever so captivates by him
I thee freeborn wonder of thee mountain air
Saw that light of love so crystal clear
His head is purest of gold his hair is wavy
Ever so dark as a raven
His spirit within has beauty of the countryside.
Mixture of passion of pride
His heart is an open door of gold
With every delicacy of both new and old
As the rain and snow come down from heaven
My heart has gone out to him warmth his given.
I the free born wonder of thee mountain air
Has found the one my heart loves so dear
I held him my heart shouldn’t let him go
He’s my spirit of fountain youth to flow.
Without him my eyes over flows with tears
Time has drawn near
I have placed him like a seal over my heart to cherish
As for he has placed a veil over his heart to perish.
In his eyes a fire an eternal blazing flame.
Shinning ever brighter till the full light of day his soul is the same.
Our days are like a fleeting shadow he’s hiding under the flesh.
Experienced in battle made for himself the courage
Remembering thee time we have embraced
Every moment is carried in our souls leaving a blazing trace.
The heaven and earth with all that is found in them
I will always love him.

Apples Don't Fall Far From The Tree

I want to tell you of my second Love,
Of a churchs' impact from heaven above!
I'd grown up in such a small church.
Yet small groups can make for gossip, and worse.

Not so with Shiloh; it was heaven on earth...!
This icon of community flair was "golden mirth."
'Cause for too many years I'd been handicapped; 
Unfortunately, having wed a controlling rat.

Unworthy, I felt as if in a deep-dark pit.
Hardly would I look one in the eyes-, as I'd sit. 
Though Shiloh's heart and doors were always open,
With all people-types whose hearts were broken. 

Never had I been in a hospital that was a church.
Pure-love poured forth from this people's search.
Out of 2,000 members, one hundred "I fondly knew,"
Many of us would sit, visit, and have coffee too!

You could hear the sounds of prayer down the hall...
Sometimes there was dancing, and we had a ball...!
There, an amphitheatre of seats "led to the front."
When Pastor preached, some thought her too blunt.

You could see Shiloh believers all around town,
Wisdom's principles were of a prototype laid down.
It was great just to see them in the market places,
Healing light-&-love poured-forth from their faces!

Such longing I still have, to see my Pastoral mom, 
Indubitably, her prayers were "to keep me strong." 
Though, before any churches, she married Mr. Right. 
Later her David was born before tragedy's night.

A car accident took her beloved husband home...
For the year she was motionless, she felt so alone.
Her baby was spared, leaving her totally paralysed.
She was only-17, for that year she'd much to realize. 

Miraculously, God healed her and gave her a church.
Maybe she's the 1st. pastor to do so after a birth! 
With 25-revival churches, in all; she was going strong.
Father God has truly "blessed and kept her from wrong."

The Lord God, strong, almighty is in the midst of them.
Training victorious warriors "waging war against sin!" 
So believers went in with peace- and come out with joy!
This place was "so serene" there was no-need to be coy. 

Restoration is the message- for God restores all things.
I was once like a cripple, now I can stand and sing!
God's Dunamis power for wounded Pigeons, now like Doves,
Creates longing in me still, for such fellowship of love.
Such fond memories linger- as "I miss her still..."
Bless you, dear Violet, for caring; when I had no will.

BEAUTIES BY THE BABBLING BROOK and God's Angels Haiku

BEAUTIES BY THE BABBLING BROOK

They sat on the boulders
by the babbling brook
basking in God's brightness,
their bronze curly locks
bouncing as they giggled.

Their beauty was perfect 
in every way, including
the big beautiful bold eye
that graced each of them
centered in their foreheads.

They were giggling at me
because I balked at each
questioning my own sight;
could it be, I asked myself,
God made them one-eyed?

Their laughter mingled
with the songs of the brook
as I marveled at their beauty,
even though embarrassed
for having gawked at them so.

What could I say as I walked away?

(From a dream: Mar. 1, 2008)

[It should be noted that on the front page of The Komsomolskaya Pravda, the 
Russian Newspaper, it was reported on 2/22/2005, that a baby girl was born with 
one blue eye centered in her forehead. She died right after birth, only having 
taken one breath. I researched this, because I could not believe what I saw in 
this dream; also I worried that it would discredit my vision of Heaven. I hope to 
see these beauties again in Heaven when I get there. I'll want to be their friend 
and get to know them better.]

          “...there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no 
more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
                REV 21:4

 GOD'S ANGELS HAIKU

They are all over
fluttering up, down, here, there,
bringing messages.


“'He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his 
name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and 
before His angels.'”
               REV 3:5

These poems are the last 2 poems in my IN HEAVEN book, which is 165 pages 
long, and for which I'm seeking a publisher.

A Grown-Ups Prayer

Dear Father, can you spare an Angel to be with me today,
I am not a little child, I’m grown up in many-a-way.
I said I wouldn’t bug you, many years ago,
But my mind is set on that Angel I had wanted so.
I’m not that little child who just wanted to pretend,
I sometimes feel so lonely and need another friend.
Father, I have respect for you and love beyond compare,
But do you have an Angel, that with me you will share.
                       The Answer
My dear grown up child, my answer has to stand,
I will not send an Angel from the promised land.
My good Book I have sent you and music you can sing,
I will not single out just one, and give them everything.
But one thing I can promise, my Angel will visit you,
When your life is over, my Heaven will be in view.
So live your life for Jesus the way you aught to do,
For my Angels up in Heaven are certainly watching you.
                       The Reply
Thank you dear Father, this time I really understand,
I will not have an Angel till I go to the glory land.
I will strive to do what’s right and just be satisfied,
To live for you dear Father and the Lord who was crucified.
I will never plead with you for an Angel anymore,
I know they have to stay around Heaven’s golden door.
Thank you for your patience, you have been tolerant of me,
Father, hold your thought on my Angel, if it pleases Thee.

Evil Abound

Evil abound in the dark night air, 
The watcher is waiting, 
As you feel it’s blood thirsty stare.

Sweat starts to form 
On your brow and your cheek 
As fear grabs your voice 
So you can not even speak. 

Icy fingers of terror 
Run down your neck to your back, 
As you nervously anticipate 
The demons vicious attack 

Palm to your chest 
You feel your heart race 
As the blood starts to slowly 
Drain from your face, 
White as if paper 
Ashen colored with fright 
As you imagine the unbearably 
Painful first bite 

Fear in your heart 
And tears in your eyes 
As you try to be brave 
And await its surprise 

It steps from the shadows 
And into full view 
The hideous evil 
That was waiting for you 

With the light you now see 
A form and its shape, 
Wondering what’s in store 
And wanting death over rape 

But to your relief 
Through tear filled eyes you now see, 
It’s not evil or hateful 
As you believed it to be 

It stands in the light 
Unthreatening and at ease, 
Not wanting to harm 
But only to please.
 
The wings on its back 
Are now spread wide and of white, 
That shine with a pleasing 
Soft gleaming light 

Its features so beautiful 
And wondrous to see, 
Your fear and the terror 
Are suddenly set free 
For this is not a creature 
Of death, evil or hate, 
But a loving blessed angel 
From heavens front gate 

In that moment it was clear 
All your life you did waste 
For fearing the unknown 
And judging in haste

The Real Deal

 
The old pastor started hollerin about fighting the devil.
   Fight him with Jesus, and never on his level.
Yeah, he said that old serpent has got more weapons to use against you.
   But the one weapon that can stop him flat is Jesus, that’s why we repent the 
things we do.
That old devil’s a ridin high right now, that’s why we must stay in Gods’ word.
   He’s after backsliders right now in case you ain’t heard.
The look I got from that old preacher sent a chill down my back.
   That old guy must have been reading my mail cause I sure have been getting a 
little slack.
Ain’t that I was doing anything bad, just ain’t been doing all I should.
   You know living the best way I could.
We’ve all got to put on the Armor of The Lord, the old preacher said.
   He looked at me, not saying a word just shook his head.
He said we’re in a spiritual warfare and the devils fighting tooth and nail.
   And if you let him get his hooks in yah, son you’re on a jet plane to hell.
Everyday people are trying to change Gods’ word to fit their own needs.
   Some are saying all you need to get to heaven is doing good deeds.
Wrong that might knock some of the weeds off the road but you’ll fall short of 
getting there.
   The worst part when you even show them they are wrong, it’s like they don’t 
even care. 
Lots of folks don’t believe in heaven or that there is a hell.
   I just don’t want to take that chance and for sure this soul is not for sale.
Jesus bought my soul a long time ago with the blood He shed on cavalry hill.
   That’s why I’m sticking with Jesus, the 100% real deal.
I Pray You Do Too.

Where's Heaven

Where's Heaven? 
Does anyone Know???

I was wondering 
Where Heaven could be
God's Word states, it’s Invisible 
For the World.. not to see

Wonder Why 
we can't see 
Where it's at

People always say, 
Heaven’s where, 
Stars Lay

Some say, 
Heaven is 
With-in Your Heart

One Night, as I prayed
I asked God
Why/why is it this Way
Why can't I/we see.. 
Where Heaven could be

then came a Reply 
"My Child, You don't Understand,
Heaven has to be hidden from every Human
Everyone will want to live, Here.. Eternally
For Those who still have sin.. 
Those.. I can't Let In
Evil can Not be in My Presence
 "I AM THE TRUE LIGHT"

Then revealed
Whomsoever MUST be Born-again
Redeemed from all sins
Believe-Trust-Follow 
My Only Begotten Son
        JESUS CHRIST
For He's The Way-Truth Life 
Receive Eternal Life 
Only Through Him
Can become Born-again 

Then In Time, 
He’will gather All His Own {Believers}
For to be with Him 
In Our New Home 
Called Heaven

Come to Jesus... 
Then someday we shall all go Home..

Happy Praises

 

 
Beyond the sky a little
Angel swept 

Down here below to touch
Our hearts today

And

Give little extra love to fill
Those that are heavy
Ladden

To fill our heart with love and
Compassion for our fellow 
man..

But without a doubt 

I'm

Sending you this blessing

Sent from heaven to help this
Old world fill with sin

I love the lord

He heard my prayer

He wrote my song

He sang with beauty and 

Of the innocence of one soul

Your soul will be filled with
So much joy

Your heart so full of God's
Love

It spills and spills over two
Times three

So much love keep spilling
Out

God's lets you know it's time
For you to shine

Enjoy your blessing
Lord bestored on you

Dance for the Lord and praise
His holy name

Because we'll here to celebrate
Another new day

I'm sending my praises unto 
You my Lord

I pray for my family and friend

I also pray for my enemies in tow
For they are plenty

Don't know the reason why

Bless them oh father and let them

Shine

For they know not of what they do

When this time is done upon this
Land

Open our eyes upon the beauty of
Heaven sun

For I know the heaven rain will wash

Away the dirt and grime

That cover our bodies and souls of
These worldly sins

Let your heaven rain

Rain down on your children Lord

And

Make our hearts as pure as snow..

Hell

This evil place with torture, pain and cries,
a place void of your makers eyes.
Yet this is not the place that i do most fear
to tell the truth the time is now, the place is here.
You see the pain this world does bring,
 the pain and suffering the victums sing.
A song of hate, crime, and malice
while being riped out of their dreamy palace.
We just sit and wacth them while we wait,
wait for our our own maker to welcome us to the white pearl gate.
This hell on earth has us to blame
for we just sit here and watch as evil play it game.
We should do what we can to bring Heaven on Earth
for then we humans will have our rebirth.
They'll realize what we good men can do
and realize what i said was true. 
That hell or not remember yourself
for your kids will one day inherit your life and your wealth.
 
Heaven hell or nothing at all, know that now is real. the one that goes on does 
not have to exist like it does now. so lets do what we can and make heaven come 
true and not this hell that goes on in our eyes. for as i said, what is not corrected 
now will happen again to the young ones we love.

Who's Gonna Bake the Christmas Pie

He was six years old at his dying mother's side.
Only when she slept he broke down and cried.
He had to hide his fears of what was to be.
How scared he was, mama didn't need to see.

Mama had been sick going on three years now.
She knew she must help him make it through some how.
With her strength fading she called him to her side.
"If life is a carnival son, I'm at my last ride."

"I have something to tell you, to remember for all times."
"You are all each other will have in the coming hard times."
"Just hold each other close and remember my love for you."
"It will help to ease the pain, it will help to see you through."

The day came when his Mama had to go.
He had so many questions, so much he wanted to know.
"Why did Mama have to die?"  "Who's gonna bake the Christmas pie?"
"Who will comfort me when I cry?"  "Are you gonna die?"

I squatted down in front of him a tear in my eye.
"An unfortunate part of life, son, is each of us will die."
He'd caught me off guard, I didn't know what to say.
I hoped he understood.  I hoped... and I prayed.

I took him in my arms and held him oh so tight.
I told him that I loved him and that everything would be all right.
"Mama's in heaven now she's looking down on you and me." 
"She's with us in our hearts where forever she will be."

"She sees you when you're crying she sees you when you're playing."
"She knows what you're thinking she knows what you're saying."
"She sees into your heart and knows how much you love her."
"So let's have happy thoughts of Mama and the time we had together."

The days have turned to weeks, the weeks to months and years.
Our thoughts of Mama are happy, they hold away the fears.
She still fills our hearts with memories.  Memories of her love.
Memories of Mama sent down from heaven above.

Heaven's Gate

                                                                            

            
Shadows of evil in a Heaven of souls
Enraged with terror the Serpent arose
His war on the Angel's was destine to fail
For the temple of Heaven will always prevail
Cast down to Earth with a tribulate wrath
A fiery red dragon ,a sign of Satan's first path
Relinquishing beasts from the sea,and the land
Laced with vengeance,with the Devil's command

Cometh from Heaven seven Angels appear
Rejoicing God's words for all men to hear
He who worships the Beast,will be tormented in fire
Deceiving who dwell on Earth,is Satans desire
Fear God,for his judgement has come
Plentiful they will endure or fruitless they will run
Assuring our eternity,we must know our fate
Before we can walk the path to Heaven's gate.

In Loving Memory

As I lay back in the tall grass
An uncontrollable emotion tears deeply into my heart;
I attempt to understand, "Why?"
Why has God taken one so precious?

Just then, a soft pile of radiant autumn leaves
Forms a plush pillow, and my senses sharpen.
The warm sunshine and a soft gentle breeze
Lovingly touch all that we call life.

Birds in their melodious splendor,
Fly close , and deliver special messages.
Colorful flowers wave gallantly in the wind,
Each having a unique life of its own.

The sound of crystal clear waters 
Carrying crisp and vibrant fallen leaves,
To a distant and Heavenly destination,
Bring fond memories of those we will love forever.

Suddenly, in the midst of floating clouds far above,
Images of those held so dear touch my heart.
And they appear in fond  memories-both comforting and touching.
Only now can I begin to understand, "Why?"

All of these precious souls who we feel we have lost
Are lovingly watching over us from Heaven above,
Helping God create a Heaven on earth,
Enhancing and spreading beauty with everlasting love in their hearts.

A TAPESTRY OF STARS

The Princess of Stars........ 
Looked up into the night sky 
A sky of deep blue 
The silver stars so high 
The silver stars flew 

When the clouds cover, 
the sky at night 
The Princess of Stars............. 
to bring to the Hall......... 
The starlight 

A Tapestry to weave............ 
Of the night sky 
Silver stars ,so real 
You will, believe 

The Princess of Stars ............ 
Worked through the night 
Her crown, full of heaven bright 
The stars she sewed.............. 
Glittering everywhere, 
the whole chamber glowed 

The Princess of Stars knew to trust.......... 
with a sprinkle of Faerie Dust 
The stars began to glow............ 
On a tapestry of deepest blue 
The night sky to show........ 
The shooting stars flew 
The moon glowing bright 
The chamber blessed in starlight 

The time had come, 
to bring the Tapestry down.......... 
At the stroke of midnight, 
they held it high above their heads 
The Princess led........... 
The stars flowed......... 
The moon glowed, 
on deepest blue 
The starlight, 
held you spell bound too 

The Tapestry was hung......... 
In the Great Hall 
The stars twinkled, 
The stars began to fall 
The starlight.......... 
The Princess, full of heaven bright

He made the cows to want the rain to fall he made the grass that they use to eat 
to fill the want inside a cow he makes grass as bread for cows they just continue

Trip to the Heaven Hotel

Hello, there
How you doing?
Good, I hope
Now, I am going to tell you of the tale
About the woman who set sail for the Heaven Hotel

Now, this lady was no ordinary lady
Why, you could even say she had a touch that was heavenly
This lady would have to be my good old Granny 
Now everyone loved my Granny,
But some things loved her in way 
That makes you want to stay away
For you see, She had a terrible cancer who wouldn’t leave her be.

As hard as she fought,
The mean old cancer would not leave her be
Now, She fought long and hardly,
But that dang old cancer won eventually
She passed away, in a very sad way

On top of the big sea, she sailed tenaciously,
Some say she sailed like a pirate at open sea
Until she finally got to the place when Heaven be
And surely as can be, next to J and G was waiting my uncle Billy
Just waiting to see that she make it into Heaven safely

She mounted with him on a horse that was so heavenly,
As rare and fair as you would ever see
Helping her arrive just in the nick of time
So she could say, Mother I have arrived at the Heaven Hotel

some times

some times heaven sends down there angels
to bring help love or gifts
some times we see them some we dont 
some say it is only in books of myths
some times heaven its self comes down
when a grate need is found
when love dies cries or tells only lies
heaven its self comes down from thee skies
in this time of some or this some times of an end
heavenly angels together will mend us 
defend us win us this dark age battle
that evil has changed and placed our souls
behind temptations of food drug and sex 
nicest ugliest thing alive yet the truth is 
there not alive at all and they dont easiest in
our fathers eyes and evil made us all forget
that what matters most of all thee ultimate high
is knowing theres another you and that is
your soul inside now heavens dream begins with me

We Step Foot On Mars

Captain Ace Gannon – USAF, Commander of
The Mars Explorer Space Mission

Naturally, I firmly believe that
Freedom rings like a bell with sweet liberty
Go forward young heart of compassion, and
Let God create your dreams
These eyes believes in truth and justice
Faith, hope and submission are components of God
This is no illusion, as it is in heaven and earth
We shall speak freely in these chambers
Once more, we are pioneers and still are
We perform this critical space mission, for the colony
Now, we are the children of the stars
The eyes of heaven shall rise to the east,
When, we step foot on mars

Taken by your smile 
Held by the night
In your arms i gaze for a while
and hold you in my sight
there amongst stars 
one that shines bright
Chasing clouds among the rain
tears from heaven 
release my pain
i follow your heart
to the ends of the world
chase your dreams
 just to be your girl

Come to me with you tears
and i wil cry for you
a thousand stars will fall
thats true
 everywhere you will go
i will follow 
show me your dreams
and ill keep them safe
hold them in my heart thats true
here i hold a place just for you.

Tears from heaven 
fall then i miss you 
All i want is to hold you
and kiss you
Stop my tears from falling
when your smiling
catch my dreams in your pocket
and keep them from fading
My tears subsiding

Come away with me
tonight,
together through dark skies
chase the stormy weather
we'll fly 
hold on till the dawn 
Watch The burning fire rise
in the early morn.

Tears from heaven whisper
Angels sing among the clouds
Tell me a story of you 
Catch my soul in a moment 
Time stands still
Stars break free from the broken sky
at night 
Angels hear me cry
Lift me to your light
Whisper to me your everlasting dreams
and i'll send them on  angel wings.

A Piece of Heaven From The Sky

I walk along this lonely trail
The mind a ship with gallant sail
To be this piece of heaven on this earth
Surely, He knows my worth
Please help me Lord, or tell me why
You hurl a piece of heaven from the sky
It Land and hit me upon the head
Then, you resurrect me from the dead
So, I can return this piece of 
Heaven from the sky, because
It belongs to you

Angelic Reminder

Every time I looked to Heaven 
This is what I’d see
The pearly gates there opened
Calling out to me

I’d stop to pause a moment
As I’d try to recollect
The life that lay behind me
My path so indirect

I somehow made it this far
Now will they let me in
Did I remember to ask the Lord
To forgive me of my sins

I stand before the gate so wide
Yet narrow is the path
I fear that I have not done right 
And now must face God’s wrath

Maybe He’ll show mercy
Perhaps He will be kind
I know I could have done better
If I'd been given more time

It’s now too late to ask Him
It’s much too late to pray
I should have done it sooner
That’s the biggest mistake I made

He doesn’t seem too angry
As I kneel down and say
I’m sorry please forgive me 
On this my Judgment Day

He looked just inside his book
And said with a grin
“Blessed is the child of faith and love
My child, please come in”

So this is my reminder
From heaven up above
Find it in yourself today
Show forgiveness, faith, and love

Heaven

A vision held in high esteem, how can one compare? 

Expectations so great in numbers, one must always have great care. 

Surrounded by humanity in its whole, no judgement in its eyes. 

Unrelenting in its pursuit that one must always ask why? 

Questioning the method of Heaven and its goal is one of many that may never be 
told. 

But, in one's attempt to find the answer many find their soul. 

As if he was saying "Look Deeper Than One is Told". 

A million things may never be answered, but that doesn't mean they can't be, 

A dream for all the others that was long ago buried deep. 

Look to find one's answers other than in books, 

You may be surprised as I was, Heaven is all it took.

Twila my friend

A very special Downs Syndrome girl,
raised by Godly parents out of this world,
Who were filled with love, patience and grace,
Dad preached GODS word, and 
helped others their sins to face.
Twila loved children and helped for years,
in our church nursery, childrens noses to 
wipe and tears to clear.
She had no fear of changing diapers,
and loving them dear, as she seemed
like one of them there.
She had no fear to get on the floor,
and play with them there.
Always looking for her special boy friend,
whom she could love to the end.
She was my special friend.
GOD took her home to heaven above,
where she will see and feel all GODS
wonderful love, until I see her again,
in eternal peace and love, someday
in heaven above.

Jack Ledbetter's Legacy

Many families start out poor, and for some
in life all they want is more and more.
Jack could not read very well, but had
a wife, Nadine, who could, and was
wonderful her place to fill.
She read the Bible, Jack preached GODS word.
They were rich in  GODS love, and read his word,
and listened for instructions from above.
Jack preached for years about GODS love.
Eight children GOD blessed them with,
now three sons who preach GODS word,
and 2 daughters married to ministers.
Several  grandchildren in heaven above.
All eight at one time sang, until all glory and heaven rang.
Twila and Jack to heaven went, and the others are
blest and try daily GODS word to send.
Nadine is 90 and full of GODS love and grace,
no one can ever take her place.
The boys travel and preach  GODS word.
and songs so wonderful you can feel  GODS
love, grace and mercy to be heard.
Grandchildren worship GOD and sing,
and constantly try others to him bring.
What a wonderful family legacy this little
Arkansas Preacher did to this world bring.

Penny's From Heaven

Penny's from heaven for me and for you. 
Penny's from heaven sent down from above with a whole lot of love. 
Penny's from heaven, but do you know what this means. 
There are pennies from heaven, that have answered our dreams. 
These pennies from heaven given to the poor, and now these pennies from 
heaven have become more. 
These pennies from heaven will multiply every day to save the unfortunate and 
brighten their day. 
Now these pennies from heaven might not be very much, but when you think 
about it, to someone else a little can mean an awful lot.

Redemption

Jesus is coming so fall to your knees 
and cry out to The One who can hear all the pleas
of a broken heart and a troubled spirit
which He's quick to heal if we let Him near it.
Our Father in heaven is calling to any who will hear 
that today is the day of salvation and our redemption is near
if we will only open up our hearts so He can come in 
and begin the work of changing us into the image of Him
So if you hear God calling out to you 
but you're not exactly sure what you should do,
think about The One they say the Jews crucified
and know; without His own consent, He wouldn't have died,
because He is God who came in the form of man
to fulfill the greatest part of His divine plan;
with power over life and death given only to Him,
He could choose to lay down His life...and take it up again.
He poured out His blood to buy us back from hell
which our father Adam sold us to on the day that he fell.
He cried,"It is finished." while He hung on the cross
because The Way had been opened to redeem all the lost.
The Day is coming and the Hour is near 
when all the world will know what it is to fear
the wrath of God towards those on the earth
who have laid up their treasure in things of no worth;
having turned their backs on the God of mercy and love,
will find there is no place for them in heaven above.
God gave His Holy Spirit to us; to comfort and teach
and fill us with His power so we could go out and preach 
about the Blood of The Lamb which can cleanse us from all sin 
while the power of His Spirit keeps us from walking therein.
He loves us so much, He wants no one to perish
into the awful pit of hell where none will cherish
the wonderful work our Father in heaven has done
through the awesome grace and mercy of Jesus Christ, His Son.
Holy,Holy,Holy is the Mighty Lord of hosts
of Whose righteousness no one can claim or boast,
for it is only by grace through faith that we can stand
before the Great and Terrible God who holds the world in His hand.
All our own righteousness is as a filthy rag
before the righteousness of God so none can brag
about the good deeds they've done in the field
because on the Day of Judgment all will be revealed.
Glory be to God; the Father, Son, and Spirit,
Who chose to come down to this cursed earth and heal it
from the curse of Satan which was laid on us all
since that fateful day in Eden... when Adam took the fall.

The Happy Hour

have you ever heard of the happy hour where people mingle, eat and dine
the happy hour when people congregate to relax and from their work unwind
a time to replenish, to refresh and restore one's troubled mind
yet it's only a temporary stop gap in the overall scheme of time
but the happy hour in heaven is eternal and ultimate
a time to reconnect with the Holy Spirit
it's more than a quick fix, it's the time for salvation
heaven's happy hour the place for spiritual libation

Jesus spoke some parables about how to save sinners
finding those whom the Lord God wants to serve His dinner
the daily bread, the good news which is full of godly power
what one needs to celebrate heaven's happy hour

when one sheep strays and you go off to find it and return it to the flock
that's when Father God and the angels in heaven will be rocking around the clock
when a women loses a precious coin and diligently cleans her house until it's retrieved
that's the type of dedication and devotion that God wants us to achieve

do you realize that most sinners are not in church but are out in the world?
and it doesn't make sense to offer salvation to those who already know the word
yet the Scribes and Pharisees accused Jesus Christ of hanging out with sinful men
for they could never understand His true purpose was to give instruction to them
for it's not about the sermons, the rituals not the circumcision
it's knowing that your reason for being is to practice the Great Commission
and when people have lost their way and have a desire to be found
don't be hypocrites like the Pharisees and on them look down
just listen to Jesus' parables and discern the wisdom within
open your ears and eyes to His teachings and preaching
He came to tell us what it is of us the God desires
He came to show us what it is of us the God requires
He came to offer salvation even if it would only be to one lost sheep
He came to give us the good news, a treasure for us to keep

heaven's happy hour a time to celebrate salvation
heaven's happy hour to drink of spiritual libation
remember God gave each of us His express permission
to evangelize the gospel as part of the Great Commission
so don't be condescending if you're already a member of the family
for your purpose as a child of Christ is to increase exponentially

Going Home

 It is today, it’s not tomorrow.
   Bury your shame, and hide your sorrow.
Lay down your burdens, put away your guilt.
  It’s time to enter into your mansion, our Savior built.

He’s called you home, you’re free at last.
   No more remembering, you have no past.
Can you just picture our heavenly home.
   Where you’re free to wander, you’re free to roam.
  
I’ve heard in heaven there is no sun.
   They say in heaven you’ve no need of one.
For Jesus, He is the light.
   That shines thru the heavens and lights up the night.

They say they use gold to pave the streets.
   With not a speck of dust to collect on your feet.
And the mansions are sparkling and so crystal clear.
   Where you’ll abide forever and free from all fears.

We’ll dine with our Savior come time to eat.
   Eat of the fruit, so tender and sweet.
We’ll drink of heavens waters and quench our thirst.
   You’ll be so happy, you’ll nearly burst.

You’ll not have a care or worry here.
   Remember you left them below along with your fear.
Here, only goodness and mercy live.
   Buttered with kindness and filled with the love our Savior gives

So Come

Like an artist who paints on a canvas
This poet with her words tells others about Jesus
My poetry is a supernatural gift and a talent
That through the indwelling of The Holy Spirit is Heaven Sent
For you see--to save you and me
Jesus came to the earth in the form of a virgin birth
For thirty-three short years--Jesus walked this earth
Then after being crucified--He died
And back to His Father in Heaven He went
But He promised The Holy Spirit to be Our Guide
That is what Jesus--God's Only Begotten Son has done for all of us--His Bride
It's time to decide--for time is short
Whose side you are on--the sheep or the goats
So you had better change all your evil ways
'Cause these are the last days
And stop sowing wild oats
Or on Judgement Day--in The Lord's Court
You'll be sentenced to death
So don't wait until you draw your last breath
For it will be too late to decide
Don't wait until you lose your wealth
Just 'cause all of these years because of all of your money
You've been thinking to Heaven--you'll get a free ride...
Don't wait either--until you lose your health
But decide now to be on The Lord's side
For The Bridegroom is coming soon for His Bride
Says Jesus The Son--"Come one--come all
'Cause in hell--beieve Me--you won't have a ball
So don't delay--don't hesitate--come to Me today
Before it's too late
Come to Me--bend your knee
From bondage--I'll set you free...
So come!"

A Redemption Song

Behind a grove of trees is
Filled with shadows..

The rays of light shining
From the heaven light.

Through silhouette of the
Piercing light..

The Light,

Shine through cracks

Shadows of souls wanders
Through trails of heaven
Light..

Wanting..

Trying to find their place
From within a world..

Where shackles held their
Souls,

To wander..

Silhouette of shadows of
Faces..

Gently fading..

Evaporating into heaven
Light.

Rejoicing,

Into the grove of trees

Peaceful faces fades gently

Into the heaven light..

Where the redemption song
Is born

Angels work

They love high places angels do
For they have no fear of falling.
From heaven high they perch anew
Singing hymns the angels are calling.


From loftily perches they see much beauty
Man's bald head and crusty souls.
I am sure they enjoy their heavenly duty
In Gods creation -the world in whole.


When angels fly from their heavenly seat
They buzz around man's business.
The very young they are charged to keep
From the devil's clutch and sickness.


So it's from heaven that angels descend
Winds of fate they help to steer.
Watching over God's sweet children
And so angels calm our childlike fear.

Something Good

God is the One who makes something good out of nothing
Speaking light in the darkness covering the face of the deep
And the Spirit of the Lord is hovering over your waters
To give you form, fill your void and breathe you out of sleep   (chorus)

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth
And He saw all He made was very good for His intentions
But soon after the first living souls experienced birth
They chose death and now seek out wicked inventions
	So Adam and Eve again lie lifeless on the ground in sin
	But God raises up the dead because they must be born again

[bridge]
For we are nothing without Jesus Christ and without Him nothing we can do
But with the Greater One living within, Satan can't make 'nothing' out of you

(chorus)

In the beginning Satan wanted the heaven and the earth
He saw every good thing within it and distracted our attention
Until the Seed of the Woman crushed the devil's evil mirth
Through His death, burial, resurrection and ascension
	Now the flaming sword is turning to direct us together
	To reach out and take the Tree of Life, eat and live forever

[bridge]

(chorus)

[rap]
Once our world was full of darkness
Then bright and shining through came the Light
To those who receive and believe in Him
To be God's children He gave the right
And now He sees you as very good
Every man, woman, boy and girl
Because greater is He that is in you
Than he that is in this world

{bridge and chorus simultaneously}

Life is a Test

Life on earth is a test
The things we're going through,
Every situation that arises its a quiz for me and you.
We are faced with life’s choices, to determine where will be,
It determines if we have the crown, we got the victory.
Dig down deeper, there are two choices, that you will have to make,
Will it be Heaven or Hell, Choose for life in eternity!
The test we pass in life, there's a crown that God will give,
Pass all your test, cause its for Him you live.
The crown of life that God has promised, for those who love Him so,
Obey Gods word, and do His will, your good works will always show.
You work with the gifts, which God has given you.
How are you going to use your gifts, what are you going to do?
Use your talents wisely, and use them for the Lord.
The way you use your talents, is what you'll be graded on.
The tests that God will give, He'll give you the strength to maintain.
He'll give you a shield of protection, throughout your hardest days.
He will not push you past your limits; He's got His eye on you.
He will stand by your side; He knows what you are going through.
God will test your character, your obedience, and your love.
God will test His people, the test are coming from up above.
God will test His people, for integrity, loyalty, and faith.
Call on the Lord when you need Him, oh for goodness sake.
God watches our reaction, to the circumstances that come our way.
Success, disappointment, and conflicts, we have new choices every day.
Illness, weather, and people are sent to test our strength,
It tests our faith in the Lord, it is Heaven sent.
Take each test wisely, cause you want to be with God,
He is the truth-He is magnificent-He is Divine.
Life is full of temptations; that we go through each day.  It’s all in the way we handle 
them, let the Holy Spirit show us the way.
We face trails and tribulation, but we must keep marching on, hold your head up high, 
and look towards the heavenly throne.
The choices that we make, will affect our place with thee.  At the end of time I want 
God to say, “Well done good and faithful servant, come join me in eternity”.
So, pray and read your word, each and every day,
It will show you how to get through hard times,
It will show you the way.
Life on earth is a test, so take it with care, 
It’s an adventure, and adventure we all must bear.
Life on earth is a test; we face obstacles we don't see.
If you pass the test, you will have the crown of life, with God in eternity.

Jacob's Ladder

Descending and ascending
From Heaven to earth
To minister to those
Who will speak God's Word,
Angels are guardians
And quickening spirits;
Descending and ascending
The Ladder that bridges
Heaven and earth
These flames of fire,
Like lightning, hit their marks
With storms and rains
Descending and ascending.
These messengers sent
From Heaven to earth
By just One Stairway
Through portals and gates
Bring swords or peace.
Descending and ascending
A little higher than men,
Angels speak to us
And strengthen us.
They bare us up
As we follow the Lord
Descending and ascending.

Imprint of God

The hand of God touched my soul
I can do nothing without Him

Nature reveals His tenderness
Just as it does His wrath

Beyond all human comprehension
His love flows down from heaven above

Who reaches up for it and receives His love?
I watch and wait for any sign of Him 

My heart hungers for the day when I can be at His feet
Knowing my pain and suffering is over and peace reigns over all

His brilliance fills heaven and His love covers all 
What a merciful, yet jealous God we have

Jesus spent His life on earth showing us His Father 
He has shown us the measure of His love, the power of His anger

The depth of His compassion and mercy
And the fury of His wrath

I have seen the Hand of God work in my life
By the bruises He has healed and the tears He has collected

I have forever on my life
The Imprint of God

because God loves me

He's been the source of my relief
backbone of my spiritual belief
He gives me such a sense of peace
He's been my ladder when I couldn't reach
I'll use His guidance and I'll teach
 I'll kneel to Him and I'll beseech
I'm everything you see because God loves me
He's been my strength when I felt weak
I hear His voice It sounds so sweet
I lift my hands to give Him praise
for giving me another day
He comforts me no matter when
I thank Him time and time again
I'm everything you see because God loves me
           {refrain}
God to You I give praise
love You in every way
need You all of my days
just You show me the way

whenever darkness manifests
I turn to Him for He is blessed
He's never ever let me down
lifted me up to higher ground
I come to Him in supplication
for spiritual rejuvenation
I'm everything I am
because I love Him
and when I read the Holy Scriptures
I finally get the full gospel picture
that on His word I do believe
there's nothing I cannot achieve
He is my one and only King
for Him I'll do most anything
I'm everything I am because I love Him
{refrain}
as I go higher and higher on
to reach the Kingdom of Zion
I know that He will meet me there
no need to have any fear
I will eternally reside
in Heaven by His graceful side
I'm all that I can be, because God loves me
my prayers have finally been rejoined
and up to Heaven I rise on
now I can truly see the Light
God's Kingdom is within my sight
with Him I will forever rest
sinless and now forever blessed
I'm all that I can be because God loves me
{refrain}
and now I look upon His face
I bow to Him in all His grace
there's no place I would rather be
right here with God beside of me
there's no more searching around
with Him I truly have been found
I'm where I want to be because God loves me
I'm where I want to be because God loves me
I'm where I need to be because God loves me

My Secret Place

Lying in the soft grass I watch
Morning rays peak through embracing branches
As dew springs forth on blades of grass-
Reflections of iridescent light bounce off walled bushes
And dance with water on green leaves. 
Birds sing as they bathe in the gathering dew. 
Their melodies drift through the air,
A signal to all that everything is at peace.
Velvet petals open and stretch toward heaven -
Begging the sun to smile upon them and share its light.
Reflections on water 
Mirror images of distorted beauty, 
Then gently fade and wash away.
All is calm in this enchanted place
Where earth and heaven bring nature to life.
There is no past - no future - only this beautiful moment.

Grandma's Home

Heaven must be close to Grandma's home,
I noticed that's where a lot of love is shown,
When I'm there a peace comes over me it seems I'm neve alone,
I think heaven is close to Grandma's home,
The trees are swaying and the floweres are all blown,
It's always calm at Grandma's home,

Grandma loves all, as God does his own,
I belive that heaven is close to Grandma's home,
Grandma has gone now and left us alone,
But now I'm sure heaven is Grandma's home.

Heaven or Hell

From our behavior on Earth, we have a choice between heaven or hell
I'm trying to change my ways so that in heaven I may dwell

I plan to be around the cross and at the meeting
I plan to be with God and in his kingdom eternally

Getting to know God is the best thing we could ever do
Cause at the end of life, whose else eyes and face are you going to have to look 
    into?

I'm trying to get on board
So that I can be heavenly bounded with my Lord

No, not everything in my life is good
And there's other people who feel the way that I do, so I know that I'm not 
    misunderstood

I want to walk the streets that are said to be pearly
And enter the gates that are said to be gold

I want to be in heaven so I can forever be happy
So I can see of the wonders from the stories that I was once told

Me going to Hell is not in my vocabulary
So devil, step aside and get behind me

Don't touch me, don't push me, and don't tempt me
For I have prayer and God, and He will never leave me nor forsake me

If I keep God at the head of my track
He will keep you off of my back

You see, Hell is hot and only burns
And the devil can't do nothing for me but get on my nerves

There's so many things that God can do for me
That's why I choose heaven and heaven only

My Hero's

           

What some call handicaps others call a way of life,
They make the most out of hardships and strife.

They meet life and all of its problems head on,
Never from their lips come a moan or a groan.

To them life is a precious thing,
They fought hard to be here and you can hear it in the songs they sang.

 Like maybe walking to us is no big deal,
 But to those who have no legs can you imagine the way they might feel.

What about maybe no arms or hands,
That would be such a hardship I doubt I could stand.

When this is all there is and there is nothing more,
You might think the Lord has given up on you for sure.

But the ones I’ve met don’t hold no grudge against the man up above,
They see Him as an instrument of love.

For one day they will all stand toe to toe,
Cause no one will be handicapped in Heaven for this they know.

A glorified body will be their reward,
For trusting in Jesus when life had really been hard.

They’ll be like everyone else who has earned the right,
Standing tall in Heaven no more battles to fight.

The Broken World

We beheld the beauty of the first garden in originality
Life in its simplicity
An egalitarian world
Needs and wants afar us
We neither pray nor fast to feed belly 
We commune and fellowship face to face
Flesh and spirit is one
Death abortive

The proclaim wisdom acclaimed by man
Hamper it intended mission
Placed us amidst mess
Deviation from the state of merriment, rest, respite, jollity 
Who is to be blame?
The creator, the created perhaps the mediator
The blameless remain irreproachable
They’re will wheel us to this end
Selfish being
End of discussion hope for a new heaven

Behold you are the garden  
The seed to design second palace
Feed the feeble
The tree that shelter the vagabond yet build bridges
The river that giveth life
The Peace that accommodate conflict yet combat evils
You’re second Adam
Special breed ordained to bring heaven on earth

Awake!!!
The mediator yet live
It intended mission yet live
Steal, kill and destroy
Girdle your heart and take your position
Now you are gods.
Build your dreamed world 
Habitable for all

My Testimony

   
As I look back on the life that I led,
I realize I was unhappy until I found Christ and through Him my life was fed.

Like a song I once heard I wondered aimless living in sin.
I just plowed through life refusing to let my Savior come in.

He was always there Gods gift of love,
Gods only Son sent from heaven above.

To cleanse our spirit and wash us clean,
To share His Kingdom of peace and love so wonderful and pristine.

So stubborn I was when I was young,
Bitter and tormented with a vile speaking tongue.

I knew of Jesus and what He was about,
But the devil had control and thus I was filled with doubt.

It was a mighty long journey before I surrendered my soul,
And accepted Jesus and Heaven as my ultimate goal.

The first few months after I accepted Jesus as my guiding light,
The devil got mad and put up one hell of a fight.

The devil hates losing especially someone he used to control,
It took a lot of prayers to save my soul.

A couple of months after I was saved I was practically bedridden for a couple of 
days.
I couldn’t even speak or walk just mumble and stumble for no reason as friends 
began to pray.

These mighty warriors of God I feel is what saved me I know in my heart.
No payment was required as my friends were only doing their part.

The presence of God is so real you’ll not change my mind.
An awesome love for all if you’ll only look you surely will find.

Wonderin Bout Heaven

Does Heaven have a telephone?
You can call me everyday.
Does Heaven have a T.V. set?
You can see me in the play.
Does Heaven have a radio?
You can listen to me sing.
Does Heaven have a garden?
You can see the first of spring.
Does Heaven have a window?
You can look out at the sea.
Does Heaven have a staircase?
You can come and visit me.
But if by chance before you,
It should be my turn to go,
I’ll sit in Heaven and wait for you,
And together we will know…
If Heaven has a telephone,
We can use it everyday.
If Heaven has a T.V. set,
We can watch the children play.
If Heaven has a radio,
We can hear the people sing.
If Heaven has a garden,
We can see the first of spring.
If Heaven has a window,
We can look out at the sea.
If Heaven has a staircase,
We’ll just have to wait and see.
