A Vision Of A Child

 
      Under the Christmas tree sits a nativity scene in the old town square. I sit on a rustic wood bench and reminisce on the stories I’ve been told about Jesus being born on Christmas Day. When all of a sudden I hear movement in the bushes; I turn my head and look over my shoulder. With a sudden fright, a tall pure white stallion with feathered wings, steps forward and says, “My name is Peg, climb on my back and I’ll take you to where it all began.” I arose to my feet and got on Peg’s back, held on tightly to his mane. He galloped off at full speed facing into the wind and took off soaring into the night full of stars, being guided by a large, bright, glowing star. 

      Peg turned his head and said, “That is the Christmas Star ahead.” 

      As I looked down below, I saw coming from the east, three men. Could they be the three Wise Men!    

      As we reach the star we slow down to a town. Peg said, “This is Bethlehem down below.” 

      Peg starts descending close to a stable and lands. I anxiously dismount and we both walk towards the stable. My spirit was overpowered with awe, there in the small dim lite stable, we found a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger, with his mother Mary kneeling beside Him. 

      The shepherds that were watching their flocks near the stable also came all elated, one of them said, “An angel appeared and told us a Savior, the Messiah, had been born and that we would find Jesus laying in a manger. So we immediately came to see if truly Jesus our Savior was borned. ”
   
      Heaven was rejoicing at the birth of a Savior for all people.

      The three Wise Men arrived and said, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” They gazed at the young Child and immediately fell down and worshiped Him, they presented their gifts to him of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

      We stayed for a while in admiration of our Lord Jesus. 

     After a time Peg said, “ I need to get you back before you are missed.”  

      Together we flew into the endless night back home to the Christmas tree where I had been before.

The Passion Of Christ

Yes, it was real, it seared like desert sand;
I sensed a scorching sandstorm stirring:
warm winds whipping, hot cinders blowing in.
And you were there; compassion shining
in eyes that could read me,
a smile that could still a thrown stone.
Hostile tongues flung names at me like stones -
whore, slut, harlot.
When we met I was slinky-silken in scarlet;
your eyes, your smile, unpicked my harlot.
You loved the sinner in me,
embraced my human frailty.

Oh Lord, my lover,
how many times did my tears anoint you
as molten beads of your sweat anointed me?
I bent low at your feet, lowly,
like a fig tree bending to earth.
Was it tears or spheres of perfumed oil
that fell? I couldn't tell,
but I caressed away your cares,
wrapped you in silk spools of my hair.

Your memory is fire.
Your skin was desert,
burning bronze, scourged and scoured
by scalding winds of the puritanical,
yet thirsting for sensuality's oasis;
raindrop touches of my fingertips.
Liquid love poured from every pore
like aromatic oil.

I loved the man as they loved the myth.
And I could love you only like this:
pulsing in my arms with a human pulse,
incandescent with the zeal of my kiss.

Hot winds brought on hard heat.
Our final hours together were shifting sands
sifting through an hourglass, funnelling away.
But even as they drove each nail in
I felt the hot shuddering within,
knew that this was your release
from mortal flesh and sin.

Three days, three nights,
weeping at the womb of your tomb.
And now they find you risen, but I recall you risen
in my hands, your mouth pressed to mine.

So desert becomes oasis; arid earth
softening to the green of rebirth,
and I am a seed of love about to break,
my belly stippled, and rippling with our child.

Little Blue Pill

Went through a phase....thought maybe I should live life to the fullest,
and stop giving away 8 hours of each day, towards sleeping.

After the first week of sleep deprivation,
Buddha and Jesus both appeared simultaneously,
started following me wherever I went-
couldn't tell between hallucinations and reality.

Buddha helped write my final exams,
and Jesus always made sure that I didn't forget to eat.

After the second week, I was floating above my body....
no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't fall asleep anymore-
didn't just have second and third winds....I was having winds 
to the 99th power extreme.
Jesus was telling me to try again and again,
while Buddha told me to hang in there,
for Nirvana was just around the corner.

Asked my buddy for some help,
and he gave me this little blue pill -
don't even touch aspirin anymore.

Well, the pill knocked me right out! 
Tried so hard to fight against it,
having some doubts about what I had just swallowed.

Metallic galaxies of inner stars began pulling at my eyelids,
adding their massive core-gravity to my temples.
Red turned to black inside of my mind,
as little globules of pulsing light
floated before my inner-eye.
Down,
down,
d      o      w      n,
down, I spiralled,
thinking about picking cherries from the apple tree in Eden....
beautiful Japanese Geishas propping up the ladder
that pointed down into the rabbit hole.
Up was down,
as cherries were apples?
The branches of the tree resembled its roots in the ground-
perfect mirrors of each other,
as I sat in both places at once;
dream double looking back at me.

ZZzzzzZzzzzZZzzzZZZz....for almost 62 hours straight.
Must have lived a thousand lives in those dreams.
Woke up, wasn't sure if I was still sleeping?
Awoke into sweat and stale urine.
Started falling asleep in school.
Fell asleep at work.
Once you swallow the blue pill,
you can never go back-
the rabbit hole stretches into eternity.

The Chronicles Of Vomiticus Grammaticus - Part II: Ground Zero

Will someone please help me!?
I think Satan has possessed my gastronomical juices,
twisting up my stomach like a full garbage bag.

Please go and call over a Priest
to exorcize this demonic grip from within-
but I beg of you to get a heterosexual Father,
not one who will take advantage of my weakness.

I have been swallowing my own vomit for many days,
and can no longer hold back this thick, spewing craze.

My stomach feels more queasy than a seasick little girl,
the time is coming to launch forth my most foul hurl.

Pray to Black Jesus with my loud, retching vomit-song,
I do not want to be Vomiticus Grammaticus, for too long.



*BLAAAAAARRRRG  RRRRAAAAAALLPHHHUUUUMMMPHHHH!!*



Oh! I just filled up both large-sized garbage bins up to the brim,
with ghastly floating chunks that look so very, very grim.

Two seagulls have started slurping up my rancid spew,
filthy, feathered swine, lapping up this most sickly stew.

Ugggh! Now my cat is licking up the vomit from off of the floor,
she is purring away, gobbling up my slimy, viscous gore.

The sight of her lapping up my....



*BLAAAAAARRRRG  RRRRAAAAALLPHHHUUUUMMMPHHHH!!*



Oh hot damn, shazzam! Vomit on the keyboard! Vomit dripping from my hair;
plugging up my ears, crawling up my nose with its terrible stench! Despair!

1 fish, 2 fish, 3 fish, 4 fish.
Red puke, green puke, yellow puke, blue puke.
No Sam, I do not want any more green eggs and ham!



*BLAAAAAARRRRG  RRRRAAAAALLPHHHUUUUMMMPHHHH!!*



Will someone please help me get rid of this Devil!?
I truly only mean well; I really, really do!

Pray to Black Jesus with my loud, retching vomit-song,
I do not want to be Vomiticus Grammaticus, for too long.






*Twisted poem, in the sense that this is actually a cryptic response
to my personal dealings here @Poetrysoup.com.
I don't think a lot of people realized at the time
how Vomiticus Grammaticus was really a hidden message about
some of the social politics that goes on @Poetrysoup.com,
and most other group settings as well.

Plastic Siblings

Genial to avoid confrontation
Baseborn kind, complaisant character
A spurious recital, a cheap imitation
Apocryphal mind, and comical creations
Counterfeited Christ
An unholy effusion
Sons of Belial
Clutch arcane knowledge
Esoteric information

Delve into oracular verse.
Deadened faith
Recondite belief denuded denials
Portentous and abstruse
Divested of the truth
Desolate road
Traveled day after day
Seriatim in miles
Strangled in hyperbole
Hypothetical noose

Cheaply loose
Tightening
methodically

Suicidal salvation
Covertly clandestine
Do what art wilt
Deliver the chosen
indoctrinate guilt
Derision to the destined
To learn love over hate
Adoration to inculcate
Imbue their sick lessons.

An Artist for the King

~An Artist for the King~

She stood there in awe
Captivated by His eyes of peace
Attempting to recreate on a canvas the love that He delivers to mankind
She is new at this
She just met Him the other day
She only had to see His eyes once to know that she would be His subject
She only had to see the rainbows and prisms of kindness trapped within His eyes
To know that He was a wonder
He is a one of a kind
He is the King
She wanted this painting to be the most perfect painting of all time
She carefully arranged each brushstroke in a smooth circular fashion
It just could not be done
For there was only one that was perfect and that was the King
No imitations
No substitutes
Nothing
When she finished her work she presented it to her new Master
He stood there in awe at the heart that she had for His eyes
Within His heart stirred a deep unexpected emotion
A single tear fell down His cheek 
And in amazement she captured it an mixed it in with her paint
“It is finished now, she said
Now I have captured your essence
I have captured your true emotion
You are a King filled with love for your people
And I will study your eyes forever

My Micke boys

                To be called ..
            ~   Grandma is a Honor ~

        I have been blessed with 4  Grandchildren

       ~ one lays in Heaven " Kaleb "  He is God's Angel ~
   ~ His twin brother he will always watch over , and be in his soul~

     For he loved his Brother so much in the womb ,
       he chose Heaven which gave life to his twin
      ~ I feel his spirit when I see the other Grandson ~
 
              Time passed another gift to see
               we are " Mickes" and Loved 
            Our Dad held the title in Baseball 
                   ~  that's how we roll ~
           those children are Grandmas hero's 

       The Irish they love big and Family is everything 
        The brothers will protect the beautiful sister 
              ~ as many lads will be calling ~

        Every time my Grandson hits a home run
     There will be a Angel watching proudly in the stand 

       It will be as if the Angel lifted him when he runs 
           ~no one runs faster then my Grandson~
     either baseball or Art  ~ you shall find your gift given

                These children have been blessed~
                 ~  a beauty to hard to describe 
        If you think not ~~  Take a look at the Mom  
                     That girl can stop Traffic   
                    after raising three and still~ 

          "Inspired by the gift and loss of Grandchildren "

     May our precious " Kaleb " softly rest where Angels only Dwell

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

I Celebrate Easter

Good Friday, is the day Jesus was crucified on the cross.  
Jesus was willing to give His life for ours in order to give 
us eternal life.

Easter Sunday, is the day Jesus rose from his tomb. 
This is a joyous day and reminds us of His love for all
of us.

This is why I celebrate Easter, because I love Jesus for
all he did for you and for me.
He has prepared us a home in heaven and filled it with 
his everlasting love for us.

If You Could Talk To Jesus

 
If You could Talk To Jesus If you could talk to JESUS - what would you say? If You could see him face to face - what would you do? Would you tell him about your problems, or would you just ask him to be your friend? If you ever meet Him face to face - would you know who He was? Well let me tell you - that he is not far away. He already knows about you and sees you everyday. He is just waiting for your call. Jesus knows you very well ever since you were born, so don't be afraid to talk to him. He is like your best friend. whatever you tell Him - He won't tell a soul. He is very good at keeping secrets, like no one else in the world. If you can talk to JESUS - bare to Him your soul. Don't ever be afraid , for He is the best friend that anyone could ever have. Go now and talk to Him. He is waiting for your call....

War Mentality

They come from a different era
where patriotism is a just cause
they would fight for the true blue
never mind who was right or wrong

they stood staunch and egos proud
their chest out, backs straight and chins up
they come from an old style of thinking
I fight today as my father and grandfather did too.

fighting for an eye for an eye tooth for a tooth
I will die to serve my country even if its a lie
if you try to invade our land
we will come and conquer you

we are defenders of the truth
but the old timers forget
and the young ones have a narrow point of view
there was a time when the immigrants were Irish, Italians and jews

racism was rampant and that hasn't changed
Christians today still preach
'Jesus is savior they say repent your evil ways
pushing their rhetoric just like the roman empire did

amazingly America seems to be doing the same
history seems to repeat itself time and time again
war, religion, oil and what we perceive  as freedom
we invade again and again and call it defending democracy

yet the intelligence comes from spies and other governments
because they have shared interests in different types of policy
they all carefully choose their words
because one slip of the lip could trigger war as it has happened before

todays war on terrorism is a campaign designed  to instill pain 
and un-trust to drain our resources from us 
And our leader claimed up front this is not a religious war
yet he paraphrases from the bible we'll get those evil doers

you see bush fooled our religious leaders too.
he used their belief in Jesus he tricked 'em all just to get their vote
he claims he's a born again Christian and this Christians embraced him holly
but then one day bush spoke to Jesus and asked what to do with Iraq

Jesus responded Invade that country
Now dont get me wrong Jesus was not about war 
he taught of peace, love and compassion
however his message has been twisted and turned over time 

and history shows the hands of Christian religious leaders are always bloody
because they twist the truth to control dictatorship is always the goal
Bush had been plaining war before a judge handed him the seat
on his first day he signed a bill into law prevent any criminal charges against him

Peace

The lion roars 
			while the lamb bleats.
He paces and prowls,
	savoring the kill.

I would like to roar. 
	I hate this bleating.
I want to see them 
	quaking in fear.

I have not the claws
	to rip and tear,
nor teeth to devour
	the roaring lion.

So I must be wise
		and follow the Shepherd 
who slays the beast
		and gives me rest.

I need not bleat
	but praise the one
who causes the lion 
	to lie down by the lamb.

The Perfect Painting

*The Perfect Painting*

On a canvas like none other
I began to sculpt all of mankind
I began with a single piece of clay and a thought

A thought of love…

I desired love of unprecedented proportions
So I created the most unparalleled piece of art

I created man…

In 
my
own
image

I took my Creator’s paintbrush
And with just one stroke
My love created you
…Yes you 
And all of mankind

With my heart for creativity in mind
I desired to have a race of people just like me 

A race of gentle-hearted people 
That went about populating the earth
As miniature ME’s
Depositing love flowers
And a sense of security

Then one day a snake came along
He dumped mud upon my canvas
And tried to destroy my masterpiece
He was unsuccessful as you can see
For every time a new day begins
Every time a new sunset or sunrise is shown
It is a gentle reminder that I have won in the end

I Am the master Creator…

I am God…

I am the Author…
I am the Great Painter…

I am a Designer…

And I created you!

So whenever you arise in the morning
And whenever you retire from your long day
Just remember the author and finisher of your faith
Believe on me and you shall have everlasting life!
Love, Jesus Christ

just listening

I'm only happy when I'm sad, she said.
When people say their glad,
I get mad because,
they used the word glad, she said, we laughed.
The sings she said, I guess, 
wouldn't seem important.
If you asked if she knew Shakespeare, she'd say,
when I was born he was already dead.
She liked autobiographies because, she said,
they were books about history,
written by people who were there.
She loved the new testament,
because of what a mess it is, she said,
how great it was that Jesus gave,
gave such a big storytelling gig,
to his four buddies who couldn't write a lick.
That Jesus must have been a piss,
to hang out with, she said.

Important or not,
I didn't want to miss a word,
whatever she said,
I never waited to talk, with her,
I was happy to be,
just listening.

Black Jesus

Sitting in an ultra-modern cafe,
sitting among people too cool to be warm.
Sipping on a coffee with a long, fancy name,
thinking about how far I have come
since making coffee over an open fire-
making it like a true desperado.

There is a poster pinned up on the wall.
An image of Black Jesus staring down at me,
making me feel all guilty
for hanging out with all this money;
for hanging out with all this decadence.
Black Jesus staring down at me,
making me feel guilty as can be.

Is this how the madness starts?
I have never been prone to hearing voices in my head,
but I can hear Black Jesus talking to me;
hanging on a poster on the wall.

"Why have you turned your back on me again?"

"Black Jesus, I haven't done such a thing, why I still...."

"Oh please man, don't tell me that I died for your sins,
because my message was lost in translation. I didn't die
for your sins, you all are so pious. I was merely made into a mirror for you to
pick up and see yourself in; to see how many sacrifices
you need to make for this world."

"But, Black Jesus, I am trying so...."

"Stop. You haven't been trying at all son, just faking mere
forgeries to make yourself feel better, is all. I was the beggar that you passed
before coming in here. You turned your back on the beggar, you turned your 
back on me."

"You mean....he just wants another fix. If I give him money, he will just buy another hit!"

"Nonsense. I gave you a test, and you completely failed it again. You should have 
brought me home, offered me a hot meal and a place to hang my weary head."

"That dude! He might have fleas or worse. He would rob me blind in my sleep. He could be 
a crazy and slit my throat from ear to ear!"

"Please kid, don't talk to me about sacrifice. You can't just walk around singing praise,
and thinking, 'Jesus loves me this I know', or 'Jesus died for our sins.' Nah it isn't
easy like that, it isn't easy like that at all. You have to make a sacrifice each and every
single time, no matter how high the cost may be."


Looking into my ten dollar coffee, wondering if someone had spiked it hard.
Spiked it real hard, with some of Uptight-Timothy Leary's magical carpet ride.
Black Jesus looming over me, making me feel all guilty.
Hanging on the wall, Black Jesus looking straight through me.

Soul Ties

Soul ties are tight like crazy glue.Who could ever get through?Stuck twisted,and  
bonded,can't really hide it.
Soul ties:listening to the continuous lies and the fake alibis underneath that dark 
disguise.
Soul ties are so deep that they cause me to creep.Making me feel so cheap 
inside where the Holy Ghost can't abide.Because there is so much sin inside of 
me,causing my maker to turn away due to the sin I've created that burdens Him  
everyday.
Soul ties are like cancer that will cause you not to answer the call of the parakleet.
Come and be restored.Take the mindset to be free and walk into God's liberty.
Soul ties can make or breaker you.A soul tie with our maker is burden-lifter and a 
yoke breaker;the finisher of all my fights with much delight.I don't have to fight 
anymore.
A soul tie can make or break you .Which one will you choose?Or will you continue 
to abuse the soul and unite with savages that cannot make you whole? 
Continuing the cycles of twists and turns and down in  hell where the(flesh) will 
burn.
Soul ties:which tie will you take?Jesus is on His way.Get it right today  without  
delay.Release the sin today so you can be on your way.
Soul ties:which one will you choose?Today,again, I say Jesus is coming any 
day.Choose to connect with Jesus.He'll lead the way.
Soul ties: which one will you choose?With Jesus you can't lose.
Soul tie with Him today!

The Constellation of The Christ

(Rev. 1: 20 / Rev. 2: 1, 28 / 2 Pet. 1: 19 / Rev. 22: 16)
(Matt. 27: 45 / Mark 15: 39 / Luke 23: 44)



The Constellation of The Christ
Includes The Bright Morning Star of Life
and Seven Stars Held In His Hand
Each Shines For Seven Congregations of Man

And Shining Near & Shining Far
Thru Time & Space Is That DayStar
and Where That DayStar Rise In Hearts
All Will See The Spectacular Start!

The Constellation of The Christ
Shone Brightest At His Sacrifice
For At High Noon! Darkness Covered The Land
When They Killed GOD's Son - The Son of Man ...

And A Roman Soldier After It Was Done
Even Knew and Said:  "This Was GOD's Son"
And A Darkness Covered The Entire Earth!
Because  JEHOVAH's  Heart Had Been Hurt ...

And In That Unusual, Storm-Dark Sight
The Universe ... Focused On That One Light!
Hung and Offered To Heaven's Throne
Was Lifted Up & Afterwards Went Home

For It Was From Above That Star Descended
And So Back To Heaven That Star Ascended
So The Breach Between Heaven & Earth Was Mended
& The Darkness of Death's Space Was Ended 

And Now, That Star Shines In The Sky
And Now, That Star Will Never Die
He's With The Father of Celestial Lights
Dwelling Where Its Unapproachably Bright!

But The Constellation of The Christ
Beckons Us Close To Eternal Life
And No Sights of Powerful Pulsars & Quasars
Can Compare To The Constellation of Our Savior

Christ Told Us To Let Our Faith Lights Shine
& Follow The Course of His Constellation Signs
and The Constellation of The Christ
Will Shine Forever Over Us In Paradise

the Rose


                 The Rose innocent white, soft pink, yellows 
                colors touch your soul vibrant red to amethyst

                enhances beauty yet a thorn awaits to break skin
                as life does piercing your heart with a thin pin.

                My life has shed drops of blood through each petal
                 as if in return for the love and beauty you feel

                hence pain underneath patiently waits the bloodletting ~

                The rose symbolizes love yet vulnerable to hold
                for when you open your heart it can be left bleeding

                The best of surgeons can not beat your heart
                It is the inner faith and God himself whom gives strength 

                whispers in your ear you shall live you will exist
                your life meaningful as the water and sun to the rose

                 For I am your God  your existence is not over yet .
                        You must Live ~You must Bloom

A Prayer For Strength To Be Yourself

It's hard doing something different.
It's difficult staying yourself.
In a world so accustomed to conformity,
It feels nearly impossible to be unique
As the one He created you to be.
How do we find the strength?
How do we find the courage?
How do we find the bravery?
Where do we defeat fear?
Well, He's hanging on The Cross
Giving life to you and me.
Thank You Jesus!
Let us not forget
With Christ,
Nothing is impossible,
For with God,
All things are possible!
Thank You Father!
Thank You!
We give our lives to You!
We are Yours!
Praise You forever
And forevermore!
In Jesus' Name,
We pray,

It all started with three nails on a cross



It all started with three nails on a cross

Written By Dean Masciarelli

March 6, 2010 (9:28am)



It all started with three nails on a cross

And then when Jesus died he went to hell

Where he spent three days and three nights
there
for one purpose to try to save some souls

And on the third day he rose from the dead 
according to the scriptures

And the first ones to bare witness 
to his rising were some of 
the ladies that were near his tomb

Yet so many people had trouble believing this

And then Jesus appeared to the dejected apostle
Peter 
and he walked with him by the flowers and shrubs

And as they walked through the garden

Jesus tried to explain to Peter

That the enemy didn’t want to let Peter go

But Jesus let Peter know

That he wouldn’t give him up

Because he knew Peters heart and that’s why he forgave him

So that Peter could share his gospel with those who sit in the darkness

Because he wanted Peter to try to change 
the evil thoughts of the natural minds of men

And in the process it literally changed Peters doubts

And all the sorrow that he carried in his heart

And then Jesus vanished as quickly as he appeared

And Peter knew in his heart that he was given a second chance

And it just goes to show all of us that Jesus truly has such a forgiving heart

And that is why he died with three nails on the cross 

So that he could forgive us for our sins 

If we would just have enough faith to believe in him

For he will never forsake us because that is his promise

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!

Our Holiday Home

Christmas boxes full of memories down from the attic they come
The house was so quiet but...now everyone starts to hum
A wonderful feeling being overcome by holiday cheer
Welcome to our holiday home at this special time of the year

Boxes and boxes to go through finding something broken is my fear
Welcome to our holiday home at this special time of the year
Here come the guys with their fresh cut tree
It will look beautiful just you wait and see

Our beautiful picture of Jesus forever hangs on our wall
The tree must set just right so the light on top upon Jesus will fall
Christmas is about our dear Savior in our home is quite clear
Welcome to our holiday home at this special time of the year

As the tree is decorated we talk of past Christmases and our love
ones now passed on
We find peace being with each other and happy to know we have
kept one another from becoming withdrawn
A toast of cheer we raise to those in heaven and feel them so near
Welcome to our holiday home at this special time of the year

It is a joy to come together with loved ones we hold so dear
Welcome to our holiday home at this special time of the year
A family less fortunate then us we will visit this Christmas Eve
Spreading joy and love to the family and seeing their smiles as
they once again in our Lord believe

Christmas day does arrive...a beautiful day to which we thank 
our Lord above
The day or our dear Savior's birth whom without we would never 
have love
We sit at our table and say pray before we have our meal with
loved ones we hold so near
Welcome to our holiday home at this special time of the year

Dropping Mushrooms with Jesus


drip
        
         drop

pupils spread wings,
causing doves to float
above the Holy Ghost
illuminating footsteps in the sands
of whores, heathens, lepers and the downtrodden.

Built a flux capacitor out of mushrooms,
turned the dials, flipped the switches of source-codes,
bending time and space,
to come face-to-face
with Jesus in Nepal.

Yeah, Jesus and I dropped mushrooms.
Picked him up for a ride,
we jumped through the eyes
of the People-In-The-Sky.
Brought Jesus back to the future
in a DeLorean of Divine Spores.

The Anointed One,
the Redeemer,
the Mushroom King of Kings,
was not at all impressed with 2012.

"Good Lord! People created a religion in my name!?
Temples, rituals and books all created in my name!?
What a disaster, this is exactly what I was trying to move away from.
Hey! Those are not my words in that line! I never said such a thing.
How did this happen!?"

"Father, O Father Deer-Hands, why have you forsaken me?
The Golden Calves still dangle from the Vision Tree."

And Jesus spilled forth a sorrowful rain.
Clouds boiled overhead,
thunder crashed like the war-drums of Cain,
lightning arced, evaporating the tears from Jesus' face.

His eyes shone with fury,
an aura of white light illuminated from him,
washing over me in waves of euphoria,
prompting an idea to light-up in my mind --
Jesus could use the mushroom-flux-capacitor
to head further-back into the past,
and add a little twist to the plot.
__

People shun me as an unbeliever,
as a blasphemer,
as they drink the blood and eat the flesh,
take sips of wine and break the bread.
But I have shed the scales of the living dead,
dropping mushrooms with Jesus.

The physical church of cloned abomination
dashes apart on the unforgiving flesh of plastic and concrete,
of cruise missiles, Gucci, Prada, politics and Polo,
while in the sands, doves and the Holy Ghost
illuminate the footsteps of whores, heathens, lepers, 
the downtrodden, vagabonds and inter-galactic travellers.

- Silence In Christmas Thoughts -


  This is the season when the forest has winter coat on
  Where does frost smoke come from
  Is it our angels morning yawn
  Sunlight comes as little fanfares from the cello tones
  Large pine trees decorated for Christmas joy
  Gusts send thoughts from forest to sea
  Everything slides into each other to a beating heart
  Here's silence among nature sounds
  Christmas is approaching .... once from the purest source
  The time Jesus lay in the crib

How am I to Live

I praise You the great Triune God:
 the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
who was; who is; and who will be
forever and ever through the ends of the earth
Your heritage is beyond measured time
The earth formless, void with darkness
You moved over the surface of the deep

Larger than time or space
Yet, gentle as a little lamb.
You’re the color of sunshine’s radiance
of twilights last gleam of reds and gold
of the rainbow arching from horizon to horizon.
I see you in the mighty ocean and the lady bug beetle
I feel your presence as the wind blows softly
Or when the spray of waterfall kisses my face

You walk in the world; the world does not see
You tell mankind how to walk
	“He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
	  And what does the Lord require of you
	But to do justice, and to love kindness,
	And to walk humbly with your God?”
But, how am I to live?

I praise you Lord Jesus
You came and walked healed taught and loved
You bore the sins of mankind
Your shoulders heavy with the weight of generations
From alpha to omega
You died that I might live forever;
But, how I am to live?

I praise you Holy Spirit
You came down as Jesus the Son ascended
You live within me because I believe
The Lord Jesus Christ is my Savior
Sweet Holy Spirit stay here with me
Empower and enable me to know;
How am I to live?

Open my eyes that I may see
Those hungry -- physically and spiritually help me
Those thirsty -- a simple drink to quench their thirst
Those naked – my closet is full
Those in prison – but, there are so many who are different
Those who are sick –a kind visit touch of hand a smile
May they see glimpses of you in me

I praise you God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit 
King of king Lord of lords
The Yahweh of history
Ever-present ever-powerful everlasting
I am but a speck in your grandeur;
Yet, you guide me and show me
How I am to live.

I'm A Faggot

It's not a secret I've ever 
hidden;
A truth that was burned to my 
skin,
Sewed into my lips and voice,
Broken with every step of my 
feet. 
You can't hide me like a dying 
corpse,
Not rotting flesh with a vivid 
maggot;
I won't lie to you like some,
I know that I'm a faggot.
I'm different from you, and yes,
You can judge me.
Everybody else does so go 
ahead.
God made me to live
But some think I should be 
dead;
Tell me what you think,
Tell me what you really think.
I see your face like a thief,
Coming in the night to stab me
Where my spine lays to sleep.
But I've seen a different face in 
the sun,
One of the two that you carry 
so well.
You pretend to be my friend 
while
You slither your reptilian 
tongue
Along the ears of my enemies.
You whisper words of hatred,
Caress minds with death.
The innocent mind in the hands
Of a suicidal savior;
Jesus Christ the master,
Satan the sinister.
You can look at me and laugh,
But you'd never tell me you did 
it.
If indeed I am a rotting corpse-
-
Skin as black as plague,
Teeth and eyes rotten and 
feasted upon, 
Body destroyed by judgement--
Then you would be that 
corrupted maggot,
Feasting on my flesh for life.
I'm not scared to admit it,
I know that I'm a faggot.

Last Summer Saturday

Poorly heated coffee;
I can't seem to get it hot enough.
Tired eyes still rolling,
Film draped for dreaming.
This last Summer Saturday,
Might as well call it Fall.
The pumpkins out and jumping,
Future jack-o-lanterns for fun.
Gentle breeze cascades,
Every once in a while a poof.
Sunny sun still sunning;
Please don't ever go away.
Time to heat up the coffee;
My goodness this is good!
So open arms and lean back;
God is so, so good!

Poem on a theme by Robert Herrick

                                 Is it a farce to lean on Lent
 
                                 to receive the black ash Cross
                              
                                 on our foreheads, to walk

                                 home in humble pride alive 

                                 to people's puzzlement;

                                 to look forward to Holy Week

                                 not to correct our weak wills?


                                 Is it false to keep a True Lent

                                 to tell others it is our intent  

                                an unholy act to practice?



                                Is it to quit the dish of our 
                             
                                failings , to fill our hearts with 

                                sanctimony , to have pride 

                                in our many dreadful duties?               


                               Is it to conpete for favour on our 

                               Lenten voyage of spiritual quest 

                               to show the comedy of our worth?



                              Is it to mock materialism that God 

                              provides by putting it upon others

                              to show its limitation in our lives?


                              Is it to show false humility for our 

                             road of rights not our responsibility, 

                             to apologise for the flesh of Christ

                             in case it so offends our fellows?



                            It is to keep a True Lent by the boon 

                            of Jesus Christ's Resurrection?

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!

Where The Next Dollar Will Come From

I'm worried where the next dollar will come from.
Will she ever arrive?
Will she ever show up?
But why am I worrying?
Stop it!
It's all in God's Great Hands!
It's all under God's control!
It's all within His plans!
It's all His
And He will provide
Because He is our Father!
He loves us!
It's all His!
Trust Him!
I know it's difficult;
He will not lead you wrong.
He knows where you need to go.
He knows what you need to endure.
It's all His plan.
It's all in His Hands!
Lay down your life;
Give the control.
He is in control!
Thank You Father!
Trust Him!
It will all be okay!
Trust Him!
Thank You God!
Thank You Jesus!
Thank You Holy Spirit!
I love You always!
I trust You always!
I trust You!
I trust You!
Yes, yes I do!
I trust You!
I love You!

No Money

I'm going bankrupt this week
I never knew how much money had control of me
I'm letting go of the reigns
By opening up the purse strings
No bills fly out
'Cause there was no money to begin with
But I'm not complaining
'Cause I'm still dreaming
And I am worth more than money

Move On

So you sinned?
Well, that's done and over with!
Keep it in the past
'Cause that's where it belongs.
But ask Jesus for forgiveness;
Don't dwell on mistakes any longer
Because He makes you new again:
Renewed.
Love is the outcome;
Forget the wrongs,
Love and move on!

Happy Birthday Jesus

Oh Lord and mighty Savior 
I sing in your name praise be
In honor to you King of Israel
who takes away the sins of this world

Star of all stars Bethlehem 
shining salvation loves light
purity in the scriptures fulfilled
proclaiming him blessed Holy One

A messenger singing Heavenly
an angel in praise to king of kings
In peace and good deeds God's only son
Blessed born his Immaculate heart

Conceived of the Holy Spirit Lord
Almighty Holiness in your council 
one of understanding happy birthday
Our shepherd born salvation leads his flock

Faraway in the distance
three wise kings following sign
A diamond star they followed
light of truth born shone in a manger

As they entered bowing bearing gifts
Gold worshiping the Almighty king
Myrrh most precious bitter herb of the east
Frankincense to perfume our Holy One

The shepherds came as an angel sang out
Heavenly song in gentle melody
singing born today is our savior child
praise eternities revelations tune

O  most Gracious Lord Jesus 
I bow humble inside meek 
happy birthday oh master 
our savior Almighty King

My Childhood Dream

When I was a child, I had a wonderful dream, In my dream, I saw Jesus Christ, By the road He passed by, And He was riding on His bike; Then, when He saw me, In front of me, He stopped And He invited me to ride. His hands were so soft, He extended and I hold; With a smile, he said, "Come to me my child, Come with me, I am Jesus Christ. Like your father, I drive you safely to school, Don't be afraid, I am not a ghost. My clothes show That I am Holy and Pure, Come with me, Because I love you forever more.

Love Is Love

Will you be my hand to hold,
Black or white,
Red or gold?
Lay your head on my chest
As I rub yours again.
Perfection in your eyes,
You welcome me with warmth.
You are the answer to all of my prayers;
God, thank you.
Love is love
And this is it.
You are The One;
May God bless you always, my love.
Amen!

WHAT EASTER MEANS TO ME- Passion and Death Of Christ

As modern Christians, we overlook
the meaning and purpose of Good Friday,
when Christ was crucified on a dreary day...
to bear our sins on His shoulder.


From the Via Dolorosa to distant Golgotha
too heavy and painful was the wooden cross
He carried through the streets of Jerusalem
as people spitted on Him and laughed; 
and with deep sadness and pity:
Jesus told the weeping women...
not to cry for him but for their children. 
And one of them wiped the blood off
His pale face with a soft cloth... 
to comfort Him in His final hours.


The mocking and laughter continued at the gate,
as Simon of Cyrene was ordered to carry the cross
to Calvary and before nine o' clock...
Jesus faced an excruciating crucifixion
by the Romans soldiers who had
the sharpest nails for his hands and feet;
and Jesus words loudly spoken in the Temple echoed again
in that afternoon getting cloudy and dark,
"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who murdered 
the Prophets..." But the wickedness of the crowds
was too extreme to understand their despicable deed.


And there crucified as an impostor,
He cried out to His Father, " Eli, Eli...lama sabachthani?"
There was no answer...only a deadening silence had prevailed.
But Jesus trusting in Him whispered," Father, into your  
hands I commit my spirit." And in saying so He expired. 
Soon after there was a powerful earthquake strong enough to shake
the Temple's foundations...day became night
as everyone ran downhill so terrified.
The astonished centurion, witnessing the horrifying event,  
exclaimed," Surely He was the Son of God!"


Like good Christians, we must remember the long and agonizing hours
of Christ passion and death...oh, how precious 
was the divine blood He spilled to redeem us!
And as He was resurrected, so we'll be resurrected  by the trumpets!

I Feel Like I Need To Compare Myself To Others

At the ripe old age of nineteen
Feeling ashamed for not living on campus
Feeling embarrassed for still living with parents
I should be "up there" I say
Where students have fun miles away
Comparing myself to friends my own age
Who are independently gauged
I'll write on a blank page
And spend my hours in the library all day
To make up for time others are in the dorm
So we're neck-in-neck inside my mind's storm
Gratefully excited dreams beginning
At the school childhood dreams have long awaited
But I still don't feel like a student
Because I'm home right now, not in the Union
I don't tell others I'm in college
Because I am commuting
To me I feel like that's saying
You're a doctor while you're still training
I plaster faces in my mind
Of who I want to be like
And allow others to rule my decisions
Because I can't control mine
It's like I'd rather be a stereotypical society member
In pain and emotional misery
But overarching happiness to fit in
Than to be myself as God has created
Like I preach to those who feel downgraded
And so now I must make a decision
On how to view myself without the world's mention
This is the dream I've been waiting for
Yet I've already found a way which to ruin
If I'm going to make a positive difference
Where I believe God is calling me
Then I must view myself differently
As God views me
If we're going to make a positive difference
In our lives where God is leading us
Then we must view ourselves differently
As God views us
I am worth it
We are worth it
I am not alone
We are not alone
I love myself, who God created me to be
We love ourselves as God creates us to be
I love others as Jesus loves me
We love others as Jesus loves us
I don't have to be perfect
We don't have to be perfect
But I am the perfect me as God has envisioned
But we are the perfect us as God has envisioned
I will not compare myself to others
We will not compare ourselves to others
Because I am perfect as God has created me
Because we are perfect as God has created us
Thank You God
Thank You Jesus
Thank You Holy Spirit
I love You
We love You
Please use me in anyway You can
Please use us in anyway You can
Thank You
I am Yours
We are Yours
Thank You
In Jesus' Name
We pray
Amen!
God, please grant us strength
To accept ourselves
As You accept us
Thank You Jesus
Amen!

Jesus, Please Take Over Me

You've fallen down again;
How can you let darkness win?
You just scraped your knee,
You didn't break your leg.
It will all be okay;

Brush it off, my child;
Come and take my hand.
Let me help you up again;
You will be okay.

And I always will be.
I am by your side,
But this time,
Will you allow me to take the lead?

Witness Protection

 
At one time I was lost in the sea
seems no one could here my plea
the waves came one after the other
knocking holes in my boat
The enemy had me blinded 
to focus on my boat filling with water
faster than I could get out
I had lost the life jackets
in these struggles
This is what he does
wants one to focus on things to torture
keeping one caught up in this world
I now can see this
so I want to tell all
therefore I have been placed in Witness Protection
The Lord Jesus has changed my identity
changing the way I talk
and to recognize temptations in my walk
He will work with all to change 
With your eyes you shall see
With your ears you shall hear
With His word and truth you shall live
The Lord Jesus has transported me to another land
there shall be no sinking boats in this land
and the water shall be calm 
The enemy shall not cause harm
For when you are protected with Jesus
nothing else is there to fear
What a gift to be protected 
not of the things we see 
but of the unseen

Dec 8th Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception

Ah for the love of our Lord. Many folks don't understand
 what is meant by the "Immaculate Conception".
    
 I too at one time thought the title referred to the 
Virgin birth of Our Lord Christ. That it was as said in the bible
 that the Holy Spirit came down on Mary and she conceived
our Lord Jesus Christ.

 Well, for those of us still not quite up 
on that term, it simply means that the Blessed Virgin Mary herself,
( when she was conceived in the womb of St Ann, her mother,)
 was conceived without original sin. A specific honor given to Mary
 by God so that Christ could be born of Mary who by God's grace 
was conceived sinless-that is to say without original sin-
 and "full of Grace".

 I hope that helps some who were as confused 
about this feast day as I used t be.

 God bless us all and Have a 
happy feast day. 
May the Blessed Mother put a kind word
in to Jesus for each of us.

The Garden Of JESUS

The Garden Of JESUS Jesus has a garden, a beautiful site to see. One that is breath taking, for anyone that goes there will sure agree with me. In His garden He has only the best flowers that anyone could ever see. He came to Earth one day. A special flower He was looking for. He went to many places looking for that special one, Than He saw my mother and said - she is the one that I'm waiting for. He closed her eyes and told her, I am taking you home, so my garden you can adorn. As we saw her leave with Him - we couldn't help but cry, but we also felt some joy as we saw her by His side. Mother we will miss you, but we know where you are at. You are at a very special place - where they only take the best. The Angels are very happy, they are going to celebrate, they heard that you were coming and a banquet they prepared, for you my dear mother, because you are now one of the best....

The Law and The School Master

An apple fell, Newton discovered the Law of gravity
An apple fell, Adam discovered the gravity of the Law                                                     
God was the Law-Maker                                                                      
The Law-Maker was also the School-Master                                                                             

The Law-Maker introduce new Laws on Soul Food
Like the Law of kung Fu it was to defend them for Good
The School-Master was require to publish the exams result

“Adam where art thou?”
“I am naked, I hid myself”
School-Master disqualified schoolboy for failing first grammar test

 The Law-Maker looked into the Law
And saw my sin and iniquity
He saw there was none to redeem
He saw the need for a better Law enforcement

School-Master Sacrificed a Lamb in lieu of the fall
The sacrifice deem to redeem Mr. Jew from the curse of the Law
And Mr. Gentile from the condemnation of the Law

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2

The Truth About Love

Love is not easy
Love is hard
Love is time apart
Trying not to drown
Praying to stay loyal
Holding on to lover's promises
Dreaming of reuniting
Crying tears of hurt and joy
Thinking of you constantly
Asking God for all the best
Love is difficult
Love is not easy
Love is hard
Love is faith
Love is hope
Love is trust
But love is beautiful
Oh, so beautiful
And love is worth it
Oh, so worth it
Love is in God's Hands
Love is protected
Love will come back again
Reunion again
For God is love
In Jesus' Name
We pray
Amen!

Not Good Enough

What if I'm not good enough?
What if I'm not good enough to make a difference?
What if I'm not a good enough writer?
What if I'm not a good enough singer?
I know I'm not
But who defines what "good enough" is anyway?
Is it the person in the arena
Doing their best with all they have
Or is it the spectator on the sidelines
Too afraid to step a foot in?
You can think what you want
But you don't have to listen
You can say what you want
But I don't have to listen
A label of "good" is irrelevant
As long as we pursue our passion
The passions God gives to us
A label of "good" is irrelevant
Replaced by the truth of "worth it"
No matter how off-key I sound
No matter how empty I ramble
It's all worth it
All you do is worth it
You're worth it
We're Children of Christ
And we're all worth it!

Three days Saved

It's been nine years, I have counted the tears-
  they have made trails of guilt
  worried into my heart 
  then filled with loneliness and bitter despair
but by your grace I have been shown...

For the first time, in these nine years, I have not wept
  nor held a vigil to honor our grief
though the loss still burns, this time it is transformed

Peace from your love still reaches through death
  and through your eternal love I am reborn
  
 It is Good Friday. 
When God took your spirit home
  and left me dying to know,
  how to love him for his sacrifice
  when he asked me to give up you?
How do I heal this death and rise with you in his arms?

Through your love I was born, and in your arms I grew
 and it has been your love the kept me whole
 that taught me how to be reborn
    for even though your body has gone
    your words lost in the wind and breath no more
The essence of grace and strength you lived
- it grows still in your daughter soul

My being and existence came from your womb
  my heart and mind shaped by your enlightenment
I have lived a life you gave me and for once
   I live it in pride to honor your sacrifice
your words giving me the guidance I'd lost nine years ago.

Alas, I've come to know, that as you died
  and went home with our Lord, you saved me from my death
not in your dying, my grief and love can attest,
    but in your living strength and loving example
       you showed me how to live a life
             open to our Father's gift

We knew it would not wait, but the parting was too fast.
I sat in thought three days before your sleep and asked,
"In three days time my savior died, I wonder hence
   what of my soul will rise with his?"

And now sitting Easter morning, 
  holding my sons candy-filled basket,
I realized Three days passed.

  He took you home Friday morn, but left me love,
that eternal love that never dies
whose comfort is unending

I honor your love by giving it to my children
         and Easter morning I felt your hug, your kiss, and knew 
                                 you have never left me
.
Though God took you home Mom
I know you have never left me
for as our Savior died and rose
you too still live in my heart, 
showing me proof our Father's blessings

    because you, my love, are my soul and all ready there
there fore I am strong enough to give this pain up 
       to honor his sacrifice and transcend,
           to be humbled by the grace and mercy
          that could forgive such lost lambs as I

The Light

They praise me like a saint,
But I am a sinner;
They don't know the man they see.
I am an addict.
Broken eyes to pornography,
Only Jesus can set me free.
Only by His death on the cross
And the grace of His Father's love
Am I able to be set free.
With God as The Light,
The One and Only Light,
The Only Hope in sight,
Will I be set free.
I am free.

The Way I Am

The Way I AM O Jesus; I praise your name. I know that you are the highest of the high. I know that there is no one greater than you, so today Jesus I come to you. I know that I am not worthy for you to look at me, but I know that you love all your children. Please Jesus, don't turn your face away from me. I know I have done a lot of things that were not good in your eyes, but today I want to leave all that behind. Jesus - I ask you please accept me the way I am. I am not much to look at, or have too much to give. I can only offer you - my love, my heart and my life. Please Jesus don't deny me your love, Let me come to you , just the way I am, so you can clean me and make me new again. Come Jesus and walk with me. Show me the path that I must follow, so I can be worthy , worthy of your love....

He is risen


The coming of the Lord was foretold
From the beginning of the truth
God was preparing the way
For His son Jesus to be our sacrifice
to fulfill the pathway of life
Not because we deserve
but by His grace and love 
Through Him all debt has been paid
For those who believe inherit wealth
overflowing treasures in thy heart
released from bondage 
The world did not recognize Jesus
For their lack of seeking had them blind
confusion  upon the wicked
Jesus brought forth the word to dwell within
He gave His life so we could gain life
To be crucified a criminals death
but yet He knew not sin
The people placed Jesus in a tomb
and rolled a stone in front of it
and guarded it for three days 
in attempt to hold Him in the grave
putting a hold on the truth by putting Him to death
not seeing it was prophecy being fulfilled
In this day the Heavens rejoiced
An angel rolled away the stone
Jesus had abandoned the grave
death was defeated on that day
He is risen and prepared a table
we  now have access from a clean cup to drink 
while feasting on the bread of life
Calling upon the Lord with a broken spirit
seeking His will wholeheartedly 
Crucifying the old self
Allowing the Lord to guide
In order that he might  rise

We Are All In This Together

We all have a story to tell.
Ups and downs,
Together, we've been through it all;
God has led us through it all.
Trust Him;
It's all for a reason.
All your pains,
All your struggles,
All your hurts-
They're all for a reason.
God has a bigger plan,
One we cannot see.
Trust Him and pray.
Remember,
We are all in this together.
Together, we have been through it all.
Ups and downs,
We are family-
Brothers and sisters in Christ.
We are friends.
Most importantly,
We are family.
Let's love one another like God loves us.
Let's help each other out
And help each other up with loving hands.
We are His children.
We are His servants
Together on His mission
To love, save, and change the world
For the better.
We are all in this together.
Listen to His praises ring;
Let's praise Him together.
Listen to sister Fantasia sing,
"Sometimes you gotta lose to win again."
Thank You Father!

A Spiritual Journey

I should have trusted You all along
I can now see how You're working all things for good
Because God,
You are so, so good!
I never should have doubted You
Not even for a moment
Look how things You are turning around
Lifting me up
Up out of darkness
Up out of sadness
Up out of depression
And now all my pain and misery
Are a past glimpse of history
An experience I needed to go through
To simply learn and learn to trust You
Through it all
Low and tall
You've brought me here to this place
On the mountain we stand
You take me in Your Hand
To show all Your opportunity awaits
You love me in Your Welcoming Embrace
From looking back to looking forward
I'll shout for Your Love
Saved by Amazing Grace
Future placed carried by The Dove.

Thank You Father for everything.

Adoption

	I wanted to be adopted again,
Guardianship wasn’t enough,
I wanted to bear your name with pride,
Have love that was tough.
	I needed to be called “Daughter” again,
For you to look at me with pride,
I needed you to smile at me with love in your eyes,
To call my name and say, “Stand by my side.”
	But then I realized I was already taken,
Not by you but by Someone up above,
I realize I had been spoken for all along,
Spoken for with love.
	“He destined us for adoption
As His children through Jesus Christ”,
It says that in Ephesians 1:5,
Adoption by God feels nice.
	He gives me all the love I want,
The things that I need,
He adopted us here on Earth,
He planted a seed.
	I’m glad I was taken,
Not by you but by God,
For being spoken for all along,
Spoken for with love.

Welcome Home, My Child

Getting sleepy with eyes falling tired
Drift away into a new sense of wonder
Longing for purpose that seems to fade away
With every step, God whispers, "Stay...
"Slow down My Child, you're going too fast
Take a look around at My Home for you at last
Take all in the Love I have for you
And don't fret over fear of what I want from you
I love you Child more than you could ever know
You are My Child; I am your Home
And I will never let you go
All I want is for you to love Me too
Welcome Home, My Child

To Make A Difference

Bless the world with your spirit
Be yourself and love
To love beyond existence
To make a difference
Take action of your dreams
Your fire ignites another
A positive contagious we need to catch
Thaw out your fears
Make them run like the rivers
Flowing into courage
That yields strength and bravery
In the sun of inspiration lies a voice
A voice on which the sun shines
And shining solely upon
All eyes are on
The time is here
The time is now
Open your voice
For the world to hear
Even if only one listens
Love will have been written
In the stars
In the skies
In Heaven

A Sacrifice

A preacher told me a story.  His words disturbed and saddened me.....
               They placed nails through His hands.
How could they do that to the Son of God?  I don't understand.
               They placed nails through His feet.
Mocked the Messiah as He carried the cross down the street.
               They placed a crown of thorns on His head.
The Christ who cured the sick and raised the dead.
               Unlike Pilate I'm not amused, actually confused.
How could my Saviour be so abused?
               Why would those soldiers cause so much pain?
Towards such a loving, righteous man who did heal the lame.
               I picture Him stumbling along the road with the cross on His back.
Vicious marks over His body, insulted by verbal and physical attacks.
               I imagine the thoughts that ran through His mind.
As the mob threw stones and spit on him from behind.
               The profound disrespect of those people had no idea nor a clue.
What Jesus' purpose was or what He came to do.

On the hill He hung from a tree; Because of faith He "remembered" one of the two thieves.
          As time passed I gaurantee Jesus thought of the love He has for you and me.
His mouth dry, He thirst.
          Moments later my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, gave up the ghost.
Sadly thinking how His body died in such pain and misery,
          Happily, I know He lives eternally!   All this for you and me!!!

I HAVE SEEN YOUR GLORY

Turbulence in the atmosphere,
Dryness and sickness around the sphere.
Painfully tears while being cross with a spear!
Mean while, my soul groans out of fear.

No rain in the dry-land.
I could taste the bitterness of exile,
When I speak of your Glory -
People act like I speak Of the X-Files!
But my spirit tells me to walk one more mile.
Since God does not like anything mild.

Sorrow in my eyes,
Isolation with blurry sight -
I hear Whisper surrounded by Knights.

Who dares to speak to my broken-soul?
Who dares to know what my spirit shouts?
What is this whisper that calls me?
Pssst....Wisdom spoke.
The Word revealed in the flesh!
 
I dared to look!
I gazed at Him,
And I got lost in the Universe of His eyes.
“I know who you are”
“you are a prophet”  He said with a smile and walked away.
I saw the face of an angel with much knowledge,
revelation and wisdom glowing from His hair and brows.

I am not worthy of your love!
If I had winds like a dove,
I will fly away to avoid being swallow by a whale.
Who could ever hide from You and kiss you – farewell.

I got on my knees with tears of light and joy.
And I told Him: “I know who you are!”
He turned back with the Sun on His eyes and stared at me.
“You are Jesus My Savior” I said “You are son of God”
He Smiled again and left.

Sweet smile like honey.
Eyes deep as the universe.
Walks on patients.
Speaks light.
Whispers wisdom.
Acts on love.

That is Him. Jesus The Son Of God.

The Colors Of Mercy

The Colors Of Mercy What is the color of mercy? The color of mercy is the color of the bricks, where JESUS walked on the path of sorrows. What is the color of mercy? It is the brown thorns of the crown that JESUS wore on his head. What is the color of mercy? It is red - the blood that JESUS bled for our sins. What is the color of mercy? It is the color of the cross that JESUS carried to His crucifixion. What is the color of mercy? It is the whitest white that you have seen, when JESUS cleans you of your sin. Those are the colors of mercy. They are the most beautiful colors - that JESUS showed us, on the day He died for our sins...

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!

INTENSELY IN LOVE

INTENSELY IN LOVE As the wind rustles to dance with my hair, I turned to behold before-- placed in furnace of struggles where no one but You Father God, I can hold unto... How you come to my rescue each time I call Your Name. My admission that I need You and so my every submission brings me forth the Spirit of Victory... I weaken and tremble with the pressing trials that stormily comes in my path, that sometimes I come to my knees and fall to deafening cries but as I call unto You You came and soothe my pain... You hugged me everyday with the gift of sunrise that tinge in me a hue of hope. And as I spread my arms, the breeze embraced me reminding me to go on, on and on... Imperfect me fall to the lure of the devil, pride and ignorance, they blind me. They bind me to false beliefs as see they mirror my being human: uncontrollable and a weakling but still Oh God, You come to seek me; You come to reach me; You come to pull me back You come to remind me as ever of your faithful unfailing love... Despite my failures to follow you, so with sins that brought You frowns and worst that brought You to the cross still when I turn to You.... You accept me without second thoughts Focusing more with my present than my past... Your revelations overwhelms my soul that more and more and more I keep on digging deeper to know You. Deeper oh deeper, I am falling in love to You... Hence, no matter what this terrible world brings me no matter what some people do to me I stand steadfast and firm to exclaim my love to You as they--- they can never take that experience, I have with You... Accepting You didn't give an assurance of a life lain on bed of roses alone rather it is by holding unto You, it is by seeing more than these earthly passing things, it is by living like Jesus Christ, Your Son whom You sacrificed that will give me the grace of eternal life.. You love me first before I am loving You... Before I became human You already set for me a future: green, rich and bright... It's just a matter of obeying You Obeying Your will regardless of any hardship that comes Through tears and joys Through sickness and health Through weariness and richness I must obey Your will knowing that selfless total obedience is an expression of love And so, You will bless me from glory to glory... ©O.

At the corner of Madison and Huron,
The faint pedestrian appears.
A couple holding hands walking swiftly
As police pass near.
Cane in his hands
Walks a younger looking man,
Rolling his suitcase along
A central corner in a downtown city
Where faith, hope, and love belong.
May God bless you Toledo,
Today and forevermore.

Dead On My Own, Alive In Him

Faith is not failing me,

Why do I refuse to accept His grace?
Why would I rather live my life on my own

A Dream

Last night I had a dream - I was following Jesus
on the path of sorrows, while He was carrying 
his cross. Than I saw a solider beat him with 
his whip.

I ran fast as I could to go and help him. but when 
 I got close - I looked at the soldier  and saw a
 reflection of my face on his.

I couldn't believe that I was that soldier that with
whip on my hand I was beating up on Jesus. I said 
to myself - how could this be?  How can I be doing
this?

At that moment I woke up from the dream. I was 
glad. I reflected on the dream and on my past life.
I knew then, that with all the bad things and the
sins I had committed - I had hurt Jesus and now
He was paying for me.

Today I kneel here at your feet with tears in my eyes 
and a repented heart. I ask you Jesus to clean me of my 
sins and give me your forgiveness. Amen...

Bravery Hangover

I woke up this morning with another bravery hangover
One of the worst I've experienced
Dear God, please never let me feel this way again
Amen
Headache and nausea
Emotions of regret and depression
Creeping into my bloodstream
And fear taking place of my medicine
Last night was tremendous
I prayed full of excitement, strength, courage
Then I awoke to the days wonder
Of a previous night's drunken adrenaline stumper
Dazed and confused
Sweaty asking "What did I do?"
Wishing I could take it all back
Wanting to crawl straight again into bed
Disengage because I'm worthless
And not worth the dreams I chase
Last night I was so free
Following the man I want to be
Chasing these goals that have been placed before me
Running tirelessly smiling
To the vision ahead
Where being brave is key
And fear is buried underneath
I acted on that bravery I prayed for
And last night it was so worth it
Then I woke up this morning
To reality reversed again
Where my acceptance of "not good enough" is normal
But I'm done with all these hangovers
They won't hang around no more
Because I won't let them happen
With God all things are possible
And I pray to stay drunk on brave
For then I'll never feel new morning regret
Since when that feeling comes in again
We rise stronger in courage
Make a toast to bravery
And engage
Because we're worth it
Perfectly perfect as God created us to be
Brave
May God bless you always!

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?

Woman:


Woman who are you?
I am a priceless treasure
That cannot be brought, bribe or used
I am created in my father’s image
I am God’s most prize possession
When God looks at me
He see’s himself 
I am Gem
I am worth millions
I am beautiful
I am unique
I am rare
Out of all God’s creatures 
I am special.
Woman, who are you?
I am God’s child
I am loved
I am worthy to be kept
I am worthy to be held
In my father’s house
There is no other treasure like me
I am stunning
I am gorgeous
I am enough
When my father made me
He made me strong
Wise, capable, kind and responsible
In my hands he gave me the power to change the world
I am fruitful
I am truly bless
Who am I? 
I am God’s daughter
I am woman
I am adored.

Watching Over Me

I turned around hesitantly, 
Eyes kept staring at me,
Like hawks locked on me
Waiting for me as prey,
It is piercing my heart.

Here I am, here I stand,
Even though I’m afraid,
This is my fate,
To show what can I do,
I’m no coward no more!

But it is alright to feel that way,
Doesn’t matter if I can’t
Speak up, or move in confidence,
I just have to think positive
I can learn to believe in myself.

God will always be there
To give me guidance, to give me wisdom,
 And help me in times of need,
Without Him I will bleed,
With him I am complete.

To Take Notice

To Take Notice


When we see the moon light up at midday
we look up and take notice 
for it stands out as being different
for the day before it appeared as the sun went down
so we did not notice 
just seeing things as everyday motions
while many never take time to look up
to see any of the beauty surrounding 
how everyday is created and a blessing to view
This is how the holy spirit shall work
when one shall call upon Jesus 
asking for forgiveness and guidance
knowing they need Jesus more than anything
then some will  stop and look at you
trying to figure out what it is they see different
not being the same person as the day before
the blinds over the eyes will be lifted
then to be  molded and guided 
to a new creation
as the moon lit up at midday
watching as  time passes  by
 it gets brighter and brighter
giving a light to the dark world
therefore we shall be called out 
to give light 
to the dark world

Love Is Stronger Than Hate

What is a power more strong than hate? something that ignites and flames through the golden gates something that fuels every prayer and gives an angel their wings (more than just a bell ringing) What power can carry us through thick and thin? what power helps us know that, even if we lose, we win? It's a power that is ignored through out time through out the months and years that it's freely given we're too blind to see it. To harness it and grasp it tightly in our hands. To our hearts. Can you not guess? I will tell you, yet... The power stronger than hate is powerful and warm hot and intense yet soft and fuzzy We pack it away and pull it out when we need it most Can you guess? Not hate, nor anger is stronger than this power it's so much more than just lasting of an hour it lasts for a lifetime and more beyond more. It is love. ignored yet waiting to embrace us like lost friends lost family embracing us like we are cherished like we are bandaged from all the hurt we've suffered love is all powerful and God is that love. He is everlasting. All the time. The I Am.

By His stripes I am healed

By His stripes I am healed
By His blood I am washed
I am a new creation
And forever I am free

Wash me in your spirit
Purge me from my sin
Take away the shame I feel.
And bring me into peace

Cleanse me from all wrong
Thoughts and attitudes
Cleanse my body, make me whole
Wash me clean with your power

Make me the child who can be taught
Who is willing to be led
Let me eat of the living word
And truly well be fed

Let your healing flow through me
And touch another heart
Show your loving grace through me
And let them truly see

You are the son who sets them free
When in faith they bend the knee
You have come to give them life.
And give them all eternity

Angel Clouds

~*~Angel Clouds~*~

Angel clouds all around
Everywhere they are proclaiming the glory of our King!
Trumpets, lions, and angels heralding!
Every single cloud a masterpiece calling out to the world 
That the Messiah is soon to arrive on the scene.
Are you ready? Are you ready to see Jesus in His fullest glory?
The angels are standing their posts and entertaining themselves
Through their God-given creativity.
Likened to children building sandcastles along the edge of a mighty ocean
They are sculpting and creating images to bring glory to their King!
The next time you look up and see an image of our Savior remember 
The children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
The angels made clouds for them too as they traversed the wilderness
For 40 long years.
The angels entertained them with their gifts of creativity and gave them a focal
point too!
Look up, children of the most high God. Look up and see the splendors of his 
mighty angelic army.
They are doing their part to cheer on the Bride of Christ too!

Gwendolen Rix 
8-14-14

I dedicate this poem to my very dear friend, Andrea Dietrich, who is one of my 
favorite poets of all time! This poem is written in response to the many 
supernatural sightings around the world of magnificent shaped clouds created 
in their fullest glory to honor the soon arrival of Jesus Christ to collect his 
Bride! The rapture of the church of Jesus Christ is at hand. Repent and be 
ready or be prepared to endure the most difficult time this planet has ever 
experienced. These are the events written of in the book of Acts 2:19.

Metairie, La

Late at night I lay in the swamp Waiting for Jesus My Pa told me that the swamp Is where he lives? That a copperheads mouth Is like the Mona Lisa’s face And a cottonmouth never strikes twice Now I don’t worry much about the gators They don’t eat nothing bigger than a dog So I’m ok laying here drunk in a foot of water Singing old country songs The Spanish moss swings in the breeze above me An a screech owl cries out in the night Cypress knees all around me Makes me think of legs wrapped up in mud And when Jesus comes I’ll be ready To meet my maker under this canopy Because if God ever lived anywhere He lived here in Metairie.

Alone In This Quiet, Perfect Home

Bedroom door is closed;
I'm feeling so alone.
Even though I'm laying bed,
I don't feel like this is home.
Even though I'm laughing with my friends,
I still feel alone
Even in this quiet, perfect home.
Lord, we need You.
Thank You.

Little baby Jesus was born

Little baby Jesus was born

Written By Dean Masciarelli

December 20, 2009 (1:19am)


An angel  
named Gabriel

Appeared to
the virgin Mary 

To let her know

That she would 
conceive

And she would give 
birth to a son

Because she was the 
chosen one

And the day 
finally came around

When  little baby Jesus 
was born in a manger

On a silent holy night 

Underneath a 
bright shining star

In a town called 

Bethlehem 

And at that time

There were  three Shepard’s
that were 
watching over there flock of sheep

And the angels
appeared to them 

To give them 
the good news

That Joseph and Mary 

Were miraculously 

Blessed with a son

And that’s when 
all the angels in 
Heaven began to sing

Because little baby 
Jesus 
is Gods only son

Why are you so devilishly addicting?

Out of my mind.
The demons inside us braid hairs
Until we're peaceful meadows apart,
Nuclear wars together.

Dancing With Jesus

Mortar binds cobblestones under our feet;
The scent of oversized orchids fill the air;
See my golden strands braided back; 
His strong hands join mine in perfect precision; 
We glide effortlessly in a Scandinavian waltz;
Suns and moons set yet we never take notice.

On the Edge of Summer

It's hard to think that just a few

Long lived and aching months ago

We were barely to the point of love;

We had just become a we at all,

Simply the youngest of truths 

That the ageless world could show.

And when I took your hand then,

When I kissed your lips

For the first of many times,

I could feel life bending for us,

To the very creation we desired.

So we walked together in bliss,

Sometimes hand in hand and

Other times hearts were

The only connection we could come by.

And no, we never bore perfection,

For what true love really does?

There were nights where we cried,

Days where we sobbed mercifully,

So scared of losing each other

That we forgot the impossibility of it.

Even when the clouds built up,

We always seemed to shine brighter

After the sun fell and rose again.

Entwined were we through the

Infinitely minuscule moments and

Those severely searing seconds,

Left drenched and drained from

The very creation of our passions.

It truly takes my breath away,

Much like your angelic lips,

To think of who we were and

Who we are in the moment so called now.

We stand on the edge of summer,

Together forever and ever,

Until time reaches never.

Everything we've been and everything

We've yet to become are true,

Nothing in this life means 

So much to me as you

The Lifeboat And The Lifeguard

If confusion was a tear,
I would be swimming in the ocean,
Trying not to drown,
Praying I would be found,
Internally knowing I am saved
By the healing hand of God,
Knowing I have a purpose,
Knowing everything would be alright,
As the lifeboat approaches nearby
And the lifeguard takes my hand,
Bringing me to His saving side.

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?

My Lord

"My Lord"

I've got sunshine in my LIFE today.
When it's crowed outside I've got the love of Jesus.

I've got so much love the people see me happy.
I have the greatest song the angels are singing from Heaven.

I do not need money, fortune or fame.
Cause I have all the riches one man can claim.

I've got sunshine in my LIFE today
As long as I am with my LORD.

This is why I feel this Happy
As long as I can talk about my LORD.

A Sinner Like Me

I'm a mess.

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,

Weak and falling trying to please You.
Earning I cannot for this is a gift from You.
Please forgive me;

Thank You for redeeming a sinner like me.

Awakening

Are we awake or are we still sleeping?
Blind to the hurt, and deaf to the weeping.
Ashamed of religion and supportive of the new,
Aware of the lies and hidden from what’s true. 

Worship the evil and turn away the pure,
Developing disease with an unknown cure.
Starving the poor and overfeeding the wealthy.
Killing the sick and drugging the healthy. 

Going to war for some kind of power,
Building tall structures over all types of flower.
Cutting the trees and polluting the air,
All out of greed, with no sort of care. 

Turning us against our own, 
And help from up above.
Making us beings of hate,
Instead of ones of love. 

Demonizing the mystic,
Criticizing the wise.
Making our own family members,
Into people that we despise.

Awaken to the torment, 
Be aware of all the pain. 
Those who are misleading,
And claiming that we are insane.

The Love of Jesus

 
Nothing can compare 
to the Love of Jesus
His love is not of this world
but is the pathway to life
and what is to come
to be able to rest eternal
The Love of Jesus snatched me from death
and filled my soul 
with His everlasting breath
His love opened my eyes to see
and released me to be set free
soaring as an eagle with wings spread out
gliding with the wind 
flying above my sinful nature
with a different view of my surroundings
The love of Jesus
has shown me a way to escape
the things which lurk in the dark
crucifying the old self or firstborn
protecting the door with His blood
His love opened my ears to hear
The sound of His voice guiding
taking away worries and fear
for I am no longer lost in a ditch
there is a hand that pulled me out
His love will teach one to Love
The Love of Jesus 
has taught me to look beyond 
just what I can see
but to look ahead of seeing Him smile
with His arms stretched out 
For His love shall lead you home

The long glade rolls the lingering tongue                                                                          a licking fire who can tame it                                                                                           the talk of the town fame                                                                                                the gossip of the new birth                                                                                       speaking on a speculating specter                                                                                 do you see what I am saying                                                                                          as words quiz by your head                                                                                              glossing over to see fiery darts                                                                                         substances of thing not see                                                                                            on edifying myself not alone                                                                                        the Word quenching the enemy                                                                                      the promise kept older than the sandy grit                                                                perfect before and not of the same karma                                                                       He uttered Light gave rise it was so                                                                              there is only One who shears the shrewd                                                                          driving out the wicked tongue in life or death                                                                 no more babel they heard the wonderful works of God

The Way

As Moses leading His people to a New Land
Living by the Faith instilled within
Preaching the commandments of God
when looking out over the Red Sea
with the enemy gaining on them
many in doubt of where to go
Then God departed the Sea
giving a way to reach the other side
protecting and giving guidance in their walk
as the enemy tried to walk the path
the water fell upon them washing them away
Moses and His people got away
in time the people would  become unsatisfied 
searching and living out of Gods will
The enemy would in time catch up
Therefore God sent His Son
to provide the only true path 
Jesus came and defeated Death
sending the spirit to dwell within all who believe
allowing the soul to jump to the spirit 
leaving this earthly body to perish
through Him we shall Live
For He shall pour the Living Water
upon our souls  
Flooding out death and the enemy
The water shall run through the veins
riding of unwanted toxins
Flushing them to make one clean
Eating on the Word Jesus taught
To digest the living nutrients
giving growth to our heart and souls
letting the word consume this body
providing new feet to walk
with a refurbished  tongue to talk
For only through Jesus shall we be transformed
with guidance and vision to see the narrow path
to follow the steps which
 Lead to the Father

Thank You for the Mustard Seed

Thank You for the Mustard Seed

My father gave me a mustard seed
Entombed in a crystal sphere.
It hung from a chain around my neck
As a promise of rescue when I felt fear.

It’s what I had wanted, was dying for
This portal to hope in a charm.
Oh I was young and didn’t know
Trinkets don’t keep me from harm.

My necklace of hope was lost in the years
As the message it brought was too.
I wasn’t aware that the seed still lived
And from my parents grew.

Sweet Jesus you said my miniscule prayer
Could move mountains and save us all.
That small belief turned out as a thief
Of an naive child’s doleful call.

My pleas never came to pass, oh lord
Those avés so pitifully sought.
I’d prayed as well as I possibly could,
Just as I thought I’d been taught.

I ask not redemption, lamb of my youth
Tho’ relic and faith displaced.
My anchor was sown when given to life
And holds sure as any grace.

Symbols are symbols and stories are old.
Sometimes the lessons are lost when they’re told.
As was with the given mustard seed
The charm is gone – but I live through their deed.

Matthew 17:20 ~ And Jesus said unto them, "Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain. Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you".

Halfway There

You and I, Love, are halfway there.
Each content with what we've found--
In spite of kids and strife,
And struggles with mid-life,
We've had the good sense to stick around.
Both looking forward, walking together,
Ever onward, hopefully forever.
Yes, you and I, Love, are halfway there.

YOU and I, LORD, are halfway there.
Each day I'm heading towards home.
In spite of sins committed,
And/or good deeds omitted,
YOU've never left me all alone.
YOU encourage me to do what's right,
Foresaking darkness to seek the light.
Yes, YOU and I, LORD, are halfway there.

Losing Myself

Razor Blade State of Mind

I'm in a razor blade state of mind,
A place of darkness that's hard to find.

I sleep tangled in a blanket of pain,
On a mattress full of mayhem.
The darkness surrounds me
And there's nothing I can do. 
My past has become the lightning rod,
The only means by which my future
Can seem to conduct itself.
But who do I think I'm fooling;
What's an orchestra without a conductor? 

I once sang out loud,
But now I'm drowned.
The body electric left
Somewhere in a field,
Where it ceases to breathe.
We have no hope here,
We have no hope left. 

My mind is like my verse;
Jumbled and pointlessly poignant,
Hopelessly optimistic.
Scarred and scared and sacred,
It means so much nothing
That it's bound to mean something.

I am everything I despise,
Nothing that I admire;
I am sweat and I transpire,
Not so wet like fire. 
I'm in a razor blade state of mind,
I tell the truth but I'm a liar.

You Are Alive

I love you

I am in love with you!
However I have no idea who I’m talking to
You could be a toad
With light brown skin laying under a rock in the harsh cold
Flowers embed in garden
Yellow petals causing any heart to appreciate and unharden
A touching sentence
That quickens my insides initiating feeling of heightened ease
Sport that energizes
And makes me feel human stimulated push like winning prizes
Characters on stage
Enabling enjoyment of the fictional unfold outside my life cage
Literature that can emerse 
Taking me on adventure that can’t occur in reality of my verse
Jesus that still cares
Though I doubt and forget tricked into thinking he gives like others
True love has been tinseled, overrated and sugarcoated so its true form I don’t know
I am a novice; will gladly remain so, rather than partake in the artifice of human show.

Beauty For Ashes

I used to feel like 
A ghost
Just floating through this life
Invisible to the world

Weighed down by the chains 
of sin and guilt
My shoulders bowed and my head hung low
I looked at You through eyes
of Disillusionment and shame

My heart yearned so much
To just let go 
And confide in someone 
To look at my reflection in a mirror
And not hate the person
Staring back at me

To show my scars
Where the pain of cutting
Was  the only way I could escape 
the heartache

And use them as a testimony of 
of how you gave me beauty for ashes

True Meaning of Easter Time--and Day

Easter Time... and day... 
This is shown in many ways
Some celebrate it... by an Easter bunny
Tis funny 
How the world man-made... 
To distract Our Lord's Day

True meaning of Easter Time and Day
Tis God made a way... For all of Us to be Saved

Tis the day.. Our Lord and Savior
Was Crucified.. On the Cross
Nails driven in both hands and feet
Blood dripped down.. From thorns of a crown
That the soldiers placed on His head
They killed Our Lord.. Sword threw His side
Yes.. Our Precious Lord.. Jesus died.. 

Then the Earth Shook
Moment Jesus took
All our sins-suffering- disease -pain-away
Then three days
Our Beautiful Savior Raised
Jesus Our Divine Christ
Raised up from the dead
Save Our Souls... giving Eternal Life

Resurrected... for us to become redeemed from our sins
We have the opportunity to become Born-again
All God asks... of us is to believe 
What His Only Begotten Son... had done
To whomsoever believes shall not perish 
But have Everlasting Life
With Our Savior Jesus Christ
Live in Eternity... Forever

As we know... this world shall pass away
But Our Savior Shall Live on Forever

The ways of this world
Don't want anyone to know
The Truth... in Easter Time... Day... 
For Tis then those whom has eyes to see
Hearts to believe... 
Shall become saved... Born-again
Their Souls then... Live Eternally with Him
Jesus Christ... Our Divine King

Come to Jesus
While there is still time

God Bless... May God Forgive me
For I myself am a sinner... 
We all are sinners and come short of Glory of God

Love always yours in Christ

The Old Lady and the Cricket

There she sat all alone in her recliner
Pondering all the days of her youth
Canoeing, climbing trees
And yes! Catching crickets!
She would catch them by the dozens and then sing to them
Then she would set them free
It was all in a day’s fun as she danced and pranced in the sunny meadow
She would wake up and head right to the same spot every day 
Starting all over again as she had to get to her quota
She had a certain number she had to meet
The number was twelve!
Twelve cookies made a dozen!
Jesus had twelve disciples too!
She had to catch twelve crickets and then entertain them!
After she sang her little heart out she would release them back into the wild
She was the one who God sent to entertain the crickets
Boy did she like to sing!
As the old lady sat in her chair she pondered the days of her youth
She pondered the songs she sang and she began to hum a happy tune
All of a sudden in the corner of the room she heard him
It was the lone ranger cricket
Her heart began to dance and she began to hum
She had relived one of the happiest memories since the time the doctor placed her on oxygen
Everything is gonna be alright now she felt
She knew Jesus sent her the lone cricket to show his love for her
She stopped to pray and a tear streamed from her aged cheek
“Thank you, Jesus! Thank you for sending me this little cricket!”

That's Where The Lord Lives

I walk outside to see all that I can see.
Over there is our house, our home,
In the distance, you can see.
And that place of hallowed happiness
Forever has been our home
And forever will be so evermore.
That house is small but raised us tall,
From the perfect parents who loved us so
To the perfect sister for which every man would want.
The house built us all up strong.
More than a mere building,
It is a place to love and be loved,
A place that hands you hope that you give right back, 
And a place of everlasting faith.
This home is where my parents taught me about God
And opened me up to Jesus.
They opened the eyes of the blind for all to see,
And the blind included me.
They taught me to be the best I can be;
The best things in life are free.
They have taught us so well,
And they all have saved my soul.
Even if I am not there now,
I carry Him with me.
I carry them with me.
I carry Their values and Their teachings with me.
In this house, this home,
We reside.
We cannot forget this.
This is where my Mother lives.
This is where my Father lives.
This is where my Sister lives.
This is where We live,
In this loving, caring, beautiful home
They made just for us.
We cannot forget this either.
This is where it all began. 
This is where the hunger and thirst was created;
This is where we are fulfilled.
We cannot, we must not forget this:
This is where God lives.
This is where Jesus lives.
This is where The Lord lives;
The Father and The Almighty.
This is where We live;
This is where We reside.
We must not forget this.
We must not forget this:
What a beautiful and perfect life this is.

THE PRODIGAL CHILD

THE 
PRODIGAL 
CHILD

My 
life 
He 
has 
in 
His 
hand
Creatively 
He 
molded 
me 
with 
sand
Into 
my 
nostrils 
He 
breathe
The 
breath 
of 
life.

Disobedience 
I 
practiced
The 
forbidden 
fruit 
I 
ate
On 
the 
oath 
of 
sin 
I 
traveled 
Neglecting 
my 
creator.

Several 
times 
back 
I 
went
To 
my 
creator, 
pleading
Pleading 
for 
forgiveness
Mercifully, 
He 
forgives.

Back 
to 
the 
sinful 
world 
I 
went
A 
prodigal 
child 
I 
am
Living 
a 
pleasurable 
life
Filed 
with 
sin
Yet, 
when 
remorseful
Back 
to 
Him 
I 
went
Pleading.

Merciful 
father, 
I’m 
sorry
I 
cry 
with 
sorrow
Knowing 
that 
He 
hates 
sin
Irritating 
I 
am 
to 
Him
Yet, 
He 
washes 
away 
my 
sin
With 
His 
precious 
blood
I 
become 
His 
once 
again
Privileged 
to 
have 
Jesus.

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?

Hypocrite

I am a hypocrite and look what I just did:
I fell into my darkest pit; now, again, and again.
I thought that I was strong enough to live the truths I said;
Now I realized I'm much too weak; a fool too ashamed to raise his head.
God, please save me, please forgive me, and please give me strength. 
I love You.
I thank You.
I am forever changed.

My Super Hero

Jesus is My Superhero!
Ever since I was a little kid he was there
He would remove all of the monsters beneath my bed
And help me count the stars from my bedroom window
Ever since I could remember he was leading me on the straight and narrow
Keeping my head on straight too
One day I contemplated killing a frog and he was there to convict me
He said to me, “No! That frog is my friend! How would you feel if I did that to 
you?”
He was right again, always keeping me on the straight and narrow
He was even with me during years of child abuse
Comforting me as I was stowed away in a cold musty basement
He comforted me with an incredible imagination
I never had a single nightmare 
As I slept in that cold dark room with no furniture
No, not a single nightmare!
He would bring me dreams of flying and killing dinosaurs all through the night
He was my Lord and Savior and he knew exactly what to do for me
He entertained me in so many ways
Then it was time to go to kindergarten and mom couldn’t hide me any longer
It was out of the basement and into a single room with a single mattress
The entire world was now beginning to open up to me
Here I was now 5 years old and rescued by my grandmother
She was then allowed to pick me up every Sunday for Sunday school
Oh she was my knight in shining armor sent by Jesus
She brought me to a place where I received unconditional love
She became the most important person in my life from that point on
She always pointed me back to my super hero—that was JESUS!
Now that I am older and have three kids of my own
My superhero is still right beside me
Guiding, instructing, and entertaining my creativity
He is all I have ever needed all along
He is my heart’s song!
He is my Jesus!
So if you also want a super hero in your life allow me to give you some great 
advice
Call upon the name of Jesus and he will see you through anything
He is the reason for my hope
He is the reason for my existence
He is the jump in my rope
He is my Lord!

Written for Super Hero Contest
My personal testimony of my super hero
Nothing is impossible for my God!

inspiration from the pain of another

once you get inspired
you realize you got to admire
and you got know and see
what you done to somebody
like once or twice
i remember myself saying these lines
" you aint worthless
your full of life
dont give it up
but live for the time"
i told that to a girl
who was emotional scared
brothers died in a fire
and mom didnt want her no more
true story folks
no made up lines
and the last message made me cry
her brother wanted to see her
and so did the dad
the mom i dont know what happened
just wasnte said
but last she spoke to me
made me realize what i could be
she said all this and then left
deleted me and said good bye
she said these words i will repeat"
Dylan man i love you and thank you deeply
my mom now wants me
she realizes i am something
i am the train now
wifi is going low
i cant this is happening
thanks for making my dream come true
i wish you the best
got to delete you
mom doesnt like stranger on my wall
or in my friends list after all
good bye Dylan for ever
i will never forget you
love you bye"
thats all she wrote
hit my heart like a note
saying keep doing this it is right
you helping the world not only in Gods eyes

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.

Uncertainty Hurts

I know I can't give up
I simply cannot
This uncertainty hurts
But one day will be forever worth it
In God we will eternally trust
For the joy of life is love
God bless

The Darkness at Noon

I have known darkness--

The murky ebony of a loveless marriage;
Terrifying blackness, death threatened by a husband's hand;
Oppressive onyx, my children alone in his shadowy presence;
Jeering jet, a son entrapped by substance abuse, 
      Abandoned by his father;
Maddening midnight, the terror when my boy died.
This weight of darkness I have known,
                                                         lived,
                                                                   owned.

Yet, I know nothing of the dark depths the Divine endured
     For me . . . for the world--
     Carried on His shoulders,
     Laid upon His back,
     Nailed into His hands, His feet;
     Crushed into His head . . .
Blackest terror of isolation complete
When His Father turned His face away,
Away from sin's dreadful cost.

The universe in the grip of the eclipse of God--
The darkness at noon.

The First Stone- Part I

As they threw her to the ground
He quickly drew back into the crowd
Adjusting his clothing
Hoping to go unnoticed
To fit in

He watched her
Cover her bare breast
With his prayer shawl
Why hadn't he been smart enough
To grab that from her?

She long raven hair
Was a poor covering
For her nearly naked form
The anger around him
Was a wave of sound
That throbbed over the crowd
Increasing in volume to a feverish pitch

They had planned it well
The scheme to trap him
The young upstart Nazarene
The young rabbi
The revolutionary
Who spoke of love
And a new kingdom

He had been paid well
To seduce  her
The timing had to be right
But he almost forgot all that
As he tasted her beauty
And drank in her wonder
As he ravished her body

She was exquisite in every way
And just when he was about to
Consummate the treachery
They burst in on them

As they pulled him off of her
He heard her screams as she
Tried to clean away what
He’d left behind
Some of them pawed her
Hungry
Wishing they could have a turn
Yet knowing that there was a greater purpose
They restrained themselves
Unleashing their anger
In rough handling
And in shaming her with words
That made him cringe

In the town courtyard they found him
Speaking to the masses
Healing…
And they flung her to the ground before him
Demanding to know
What to do with an adulteress....

What would he answer?
Either way…they had him nailed
To stone her was the thing to do
According to the law of Moses
Would he uphold it?
If he let her go
They could say he had come to abolish
The law…and he would lose
The confidence of the masses

As he stared at her
Through the gaps in the crowd
He almost felt guilty
Almost...
The money he would be paid
Would help in many ways
And the pleasure had been intense
He looked for a stone
Had to play the part
If someone else recognized him
Or that cursed prayer shawl
He would be stoned as well

He shouted
Louder than the others
More vehemently than the others
“Stone her, Stone the prostitute”

The pushing and shoving lessened
The sound was dying out
His eyes were transfixed on the young Rabbi
What was that expression on his face?
What was that look in his eyes?
He took in the woman at his feet
Balled up on the ground...
She was frantically trying to cover herself
All the while
Sobbing out her shame
Her long hair veiling her face

In his eyes
There was no disgust
No revulsion
No hate
A shadow of indescribable sadness crossed his face
As he bent down beside her...

Please Continue to Part II for the ending.

A Stain

Each night she goes to bed in fear
Each night a prayer is prayed
For just one night of peaceful sleep
No visit to come her way
Still every night he enters in
He violates her soul
Abruptly leaves this child in fear
A wounded tattered girl
Until one day she’s had enough
His pain she can take no more
She goes to bed and waits for him
To end her broken world
With one wave she cuts away
The life he lives each day
Now in peace she sleeps each night
And all that’s left
A stain

Each day she prays for freedom
Each day she battles on
The day he promised to love and cherish
The day is now no more
With each day she faces fear
From the man she dearly loves
Leaves her in a battered mess
Scarred to face the world
Then came the day she had enough
The fear she could not take
Aimed a gun while in his sleep
One shot would seal his face
Her life is now free from fear
The world she can enjoy
Now in peace she sleeps each night
And all that’s left
A stain

These stories each are similar
The price each paid was death
Two people lived in daily fear
Now live in happiness
Some say the actions 
Of these ones 
Were drastic steps to take
The bible states 
Thou shalt not kill
But help was just too late
Think back the story
Of the cross
Where Jesus bled and died
He shed his blood 
To save each soul
For us he paid the price
Sounds like the death
Of these ones
At the hands of ones that feared
Was covered by the rugged cross
Where Jesus paid for sin
For God is love 
And each of us
He wants to live in peace
If you doubt 
Go to the cross
And you will find 
A stain

story of the meaning of life

the meaning of life was in love
that man's name was god
god rode the meaning of life's curtails
and recieved everything the meaning of life had sewn

the devil, someone else who loved the meaning of life
did not like this
he said shouldn't the meaning of life reap what he has sewn
so we can be healthy and happy
and not suffer

God knew someone was onto him
he knew jesus and the meaning of life were close
so he crucified jesus and blamed the meaning of life
then left him in the wake of disaster to go on his way of riding the meaning of life's curtails

the meaning of life then began to ask gabrielle to trade him places
he asked for death everyday
something that never came
just self loathing and hardship for not understanding what had just occurred in his life
the meaning of life would not understand such things

as fate would have it gabrielle keeping notes knew destiny would one day take place
someone else who loved the meaning of life would have the merciless killer
of the meaning of life's friend jesus to fall for him head over heals
and the devil waited for that day
the day to redeem himself as the true love of the meaning of life
so existance would not have to suffer needlessly of terror confusion hunger and disease

the meaning of life confused of the whole scenario saw two devils
and could not see through the previous lies of his ex lover- god
the devil cried and waited knowing one day he would be the true saviour to put things back 
to right

the meaning of life a gullible obsessive compulsive riddle walking in circles mastermining 
world peace and wishing death upon himself.....this is the curse of our world turning into hell

if i ever see him again i'm gonna help him out
tired of being tortured and plajerised and used and lied to
gabrielle counted throughout the days the times the meaning of life wished death upon 
himself
knowing one day the lies of this liar would be discovered
and he would play a part in this holy justice

god himself crucified jesus in an attempt to assassinate the meaning of life
so he would be worshipped and live a lie for an eternity
and the devil cried for the weeping of jesus

the transformation of the planet about to occur
the confusion of what we never knew and didn't know
of angels walking in circles in heaven being punished in a healing way
rowing the turbines that power heaven

suicidal,the meaning of life asked god to end his existance not the devil
the truth surfaces

Freedom

The yellow lines just inches away, 
I collapse right before it, deep into insanity.
Not knowing how or when I’ll wake up from the death-inducing coma.
Shackles on my ankles, bounding me to the cement jail of choices.

“Freedom! ” I cry, 
Not knowing I have limited time to be granted that demand.
Realizing I've forgotten the roots of life.

“Freedom! ” I cry once again being tortured by the demons eating at my soul.
Ten minutes left, until death has won me over.

“Freedom! ” Reaching for the only thing in sight, the book given to me years ago.

“Freedom! ” Five minutes until disappearance into the soul dimension.
The crinkled pages sputter dust while being opened.
The old book full of odd adventures, true adventures nevertheless.
Water-stained pages full of life, 
Waiting to be taken of their oxygen.

I flip through it one last time, 
Hoping to save the lost cause that is I.

“Freedom! ” I whisper.
The time is nigh.

The end of its usage is almost through, one last time before its entirety will be thrown down.
From “In the beginning”, down to the giving of Grace, the book’s life is over.
As if it goes with me.

“Freedom! ” I scream out in joy.
Looking above in the bright light, 
Grasping at the yellow line, 
The finish line, 
Where Heaven meets Earth.

There's Something Special About Sundays

There's something special about Sundays
A lovely joy that's hard to describe
The perfection of this beautiful life
There's a peace on Sunday unlike the days of others
Where calm reaches the wind and hope uncovers
Mountains of grace in simple, true beauty
The love of the Father in a heart ever-warming
On this day all our problems seem to flutter away
And even if for a moment, everything is okay
Nothing to worry and no one to fear
For our Comfort has risen and He is here
There's something about Sundays that brings the soul to life
A Heavenly connection no opposition can divide
The strength of unity is a bond unbreakable
All our sins shaken, only love unshakable
The sun even shines if there happens to be darkness
Fireplaces warm even in cold, dark trenches
Heartache won't break us for He alone saves us
His love conquers all, igniting love in us
As we say another prayer over a beautiful Bible verse
Attend another church service
Serve another meal
Read another book to children
Fight another fire
Heal another patient
Write another assignment
We know God is with us
Everyday and evermore
Look up to Heaven and thank Him again
For a beautiful day and fall into bed
Lay on the pillow and rest sweet head
Praying above it would only be Sunday again.

A Soul Will Be Saved

And then the day came
                That I found my self lost in the void of my own emptiness
And as suddenly as a tree bust into flames
      After being stuck by lightening
My heart sank
              I felt so lost and alone
The walls ran red with my blood
                     For they were all I had left to beat
And my busted knuckles bleed with the vengeance of hate
I cursed the Lord above as the gooners burst into my cell
AND WE FOUGHT
        Overcome and beaten
Hogtied and broken
                  I refused any medical aid
For my hate drank the pain
             And I wept
               ALONE
As deep as the peace of a deer lying in the meadow
I felt the Lord Jesus Christ come unto my soul
And to this day the thought of him
      The depth of his mercy
             Makes me cry
   For I have been forgiven
I became a man of living example
The future holds limitless opportunities for me
                         I bare witness to the darkness of addiction
                          For I have been delivered from the ashes
                            Set free from the chains that bound me
My soul is my Lords as my heart is my wife’s
My life belongs to anyone who is willing to learn
As I ready to embark on the journey of education
My excitement grows with each passing day
Because I know the Lord Jesus Christ
                       Will use me as a lantern of faith 
         And those who teach me will also learn from me
      For my knowledge of emptiness is as vast and barren
          As all of the great deserts spread around the world
            Compiled together in one 6’-2’’ 240 lb. frame
        The depths of my scars are like the Grand Canyon
          Amazing to see and impossible to comprehend
                   This is my story this is who I am
                    My past will never be forgotten
     Because it holds the possibility of higher education
            In regards to the overhaul journey of life
           And hopefully some where along the way
                          A soul will be saved

The First Stone- Part II

He cleared the pebbles from around them
And then, with his finger
He started making marks in the sand

The crowd hushed
Not a sound could be heard
What was he writing?
He could stand in no longer
He pushed his way to the front of the crowd
His knuckles white against the stone
That he still carried
The stone that could bring a swift death
If aimed right
He intended to throw the first stone
To put her out of her misery
It was the right thing to do
The honorable thing

What he saw there in the swirls of sand
Made the color drain from his face
Did others see his name there?
The man who had lead her into sin
Who had ravished her?
Who had trapped her?
Did they see his sin there
Written plainly in the sand? 

He looked around
Terrified
Knowing that he would be stoned
Then he heard the Rabbi speak
What was that he heard in his voice
Reproach?
Anger?
Hate?
No…it was something else
Only later would he be able
To give it a name…
Disappointed love

“Whoever is without sin,
Let him cast the first stone.”
The rabbi turned his face
And look into his eyes
Into his heart
A knowing look
A pained look

He heard the thundering of a myriad stones
Falling to the ground
As the crowd turned to make
A hasty retreat

Everyone’s face masked in guilt
And he ran away
Mingling with the crowd
But instead of going home
He dashed behind an outcropping of rocks
He couldn't tear himself away
Not knowing
What would happen to her
And so he waited
The stone still in his hand
Heavy with his anger, his shame, his guilt

He fixed his eyes on the rabbi
As he saw him turn to her
She lay trembling
Her ears covered
Her body taut with the expectation
Of the impact of that first stone
He extended his work worn hands to her chin,
Gently lifting her face to him
His thumb wiped her tears
And his hand cupped her face
As he gently asked, 
“Woman, where are your accusers?”
Liked a trapped animal
She looked around
Fear in her eyes 
Her face streaked with dirt and tears
Her lips quivering…
In voice filled with wonder she stuttered
“They are…they are gone, master.”

He raised her to his feet
As she clutched at his prayer shawl
Frantically trying to bring some
Honor into her word of shame
The Rabbi quickly took off his outer garment
And covered her 
As he said, 
“Neither do I condemn you.
Go, and sin no more.”

His prayer shawl, covered with his filth, with blood and dirt
Fluttered to the ground.

Besides the quiet sound of her grateful weeping
The only other sound that broke the
The profound silence of the courtyard
Was the loud thud of the fallen stone
The first stone.

Walking To Jesus Town

Walking to Jesus Town.
Make no mistake about it.
They'll be mistakes along the way.
They'll be times I doubt and wonder.
They'll be friends I leave in my trail.
They'll be instances of crudeness, forgetfulness.
They'll be many flowers, too.
The age is dying.
But that's okay, everything is dying!
Everything dies like the sun will one day
And we think that's beautiful, right?
At sunset...when it's...dying?
You're dying, too...
And I'm dying on my walk to Jesus Town
I'm dying all the time...
I get there, when I get there, oh when I get there,
I'll do wind sprints around his house
and that will keep me alive
That will keep me from ever dying.
I love things too much to die...

I'm asking you to get up now,
Find a mirror and kiss your own reflection.
Remind yourself how much you care.
Run past Jesus Town, I don't care,
But in the near end,
Remember the flowers
And your own lovely face.

Spout out of the sanctuary
That keeps you safe and alone.
There are fires outside
There are ways to make a plan,
Ways to blaze your spirit.

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.

Ethnic Goa and Unique Goa

As I opened the door
And stepped inside the divine floor
A gentle zephyr bore upon my core
The tranquil ambience aroused me wishes galore
And I felt I’ve completed my journey to God’s manor.
 
There is the aureole addressing the path,
the path to the house of worship,
even in the dark it is a sign of luminescence
Shinning against all irreverance.
 
God made heaven and earth and all the angels
and all the extra important angels, called Archangels.
The Archangels were God’s very special friends
and were shinning and strong and powerful
They adhered God's message 
To human races.
 
From the essence of humanity
I feel mankind is comprehensive
They are gifted with a communal harmony
And from the essence of spiritual luminance
Divinity is never classified
And the idol we worship is in the core of mankind.
 
Today when I see the unity within
I feel to be a part of them
They don’t have any caste as such
Neither have they belonged to any religions
Christians, Hindus and Muslims
Together they are Goans.
 
Thence I hold my breath
Along the serene western sky
To the sandy coastal line
There to blend with the ocean rage
And legless gamy sight.
 
Live shells, fresh air and sunrise at the horizon,
a lazy day and a walk to remember.
I gave up everything 
just to feel am the only admirer
 
Along the coast I rove alone,
and I see am being followed,
but not by humans
but by the species I never acquainted before
 
Seeking for your morning lust,
I call upon a peaceful realm,
I decided to hold your hand,
and thence I committed to feel the warmth.
 
Before I leave,
let us rock on the sandy beach,
let us blend with the folk culture
and together we will grab the trance music and dance,
the moments we will collect may bring us back to here.

The Joy Of Being Real

I know I should be happy;
There is joy in the Lord.
Yes, absolutely, there is!
In all moments,
In all times,
There is joy in the Lord!
Even in this moment,
There is joy underneath
The outside cover of depression and sadness.
That's what it may look,
That's what it may appear,
That's what it might feel,
But that's just me being real;
Opening up,
Taking off this cover
That I've been covering up with for too long.
This is me being real
And that's a part if joy;
The joy of being real,
The joy that is Jesus Christ!
May God bless you always!
Amen.

But I am alive.
Not just existing,
I am alive.
Living,
Alive in Christ
For He gives me life!
Forgiven,

Alive in Christ

Christmas Poems For Kids And Teenagers II: A Christmas Phone Call

Ring ring I called to Jesus He picked the phone and called my name I have some questions I said go ahead and ask, he said. Why isn’t Christmas celebrated everyday? Why can’t I get presents as often as possible? Why did you choose December for such moment of bliss? He answered with a gentle smile. I have made you the never fading hope the crown which you’ll glory in my presence I’ve filled your heart with Joy and gladness as often as you let me my grace for you is abundant which is renewed every morning and my love for you is endless and never bounded by time and yet you only celebrate me once in a year? Oh lord forgive me- I weep how can I celebrate you everyday? He said- Purify your heart and be clothed with a constantly renewed mind. This is the perfect Gift I seek. Oh Lord my God! my heart is all yours now and forever more. merry Christmas to me…………… merry Christmas to the world.

Twenty four seven- Tribute Brain Haw

Lunatic's Song

Lunatic’s Song


I think Jesus knows I’m nuts
so why would he arraign me 
in front of all those saints on high 

so sane they’ll never see me 
skipping down the road  at dawn
and not a soul behind me. 

Funnel clouds may tear through hell 
but not the ones inside me. 
They come and go all on their own 

as if  they can’t abide me. 
Today they’re off to New Orleans
so batten down the hatches.

When they return they’ll churn again
whirligigs inside me. 
Yet every day when I get up

I know this much for certain: 
I think Jesus knows I’m nuts
so why would he arraign me?

Carry Your Cross

Jesus…
When you said,
“Take up your cross, and follow me?”
What did you mean, Jesus?
What did you mean?

That cross…that I have to bear…
It seems too heavy for me
I’m crushed under the load
Weighed down…
Suffocating….
Unable to breathe
Much less move

I can hardly carry myself around, Jesus
And now I must carry it as well?

What is that cross, Jesus?
Are you sure I can bear it?
Is it the cross of self-denial?
It is my crucified pride?
My unruly desires?
My self-indulgent will?
My selfish dreams?

Jesus, is it that love
That threatens to consume me
Is it that love
That cannot…that SHOULD not be mine
That you want me to crucify
On this cross
That you want me to bear?

Remember, Jesus
Remember, Lord…
Please, remember
That I am weak
I’m only human
Fragile
Frail
Doubtful
Afraid
Most of all unwilling...

Jesus...
I balk at the pain I must endure
But….I know
I KNOW….
You can help me carry this cross
For you carried a much bigger one
That had nailed on it
All my insecurities and pain
Right along with your bleeding hands
That covered those sins
And washed them in red and made them
Whiter…much whiter than snow

Jesus…help me bear it
This cross is too heavy for my frail shoulders
Please, hold me in your embrace
Secure me…
Cover me with your strong arms
Let your shoulders bear the weight
Once again….
As you carry this cross..
My cross
For me.

Trivium of thoughts

What If

What if, I could not see, would 
you sight the tree of life, for my 
being beauty, against the 
nurtured lands.

What if, I could not hear, would 
you listen, to the calmness, of 
the sea, to break it  through.

What if, I could not touch, 
would you be, my hands, of a 
soft silky pillow, to embrace 
me.

What if, I could not walk, would 
you be, that crutch, under-
wing, to head me to triumph, 
along the sand, one on one.

What if, I could not cry, would 
you, shed my tears, among 
yours, to drown them, in a 
whirl-pool.

What if, I had A broken heart, 
would you be, the one to heal, 
it's pain, and nurse it back to 
health, with a band aid.

What if, I was hungry, would 
you be, the one to feed, this 
starving soul, in A hopeful 
need, to guidance.

Just what if, I say to let it, all 
go, and hand Jesus the wheel... 

NUFF LUV to everyone who's doubted
The power of our Lord Jesus Christ, for he
Is Our rock, and savior to everlasting life, 
I adore thee....Amen

FAITH

written 9th June 2013

I lie here with all my memories
realising the full cost of this new life
through it all my faith was kept strong
I know now God knew it all along

The path had to be taken that very way
as I grow to know Jesus more every day
I realise God was always one foot ahead
thats the only reason I now lay here in this bed

Every bumpy path I chose
all the prayers that were left unsaid
he knew the road I'd need
or I wouldn't have all my babies you see

now this new life I breath
is getting to really know him and, his journey
the bible I've had for so many years
now for the first time enters my ears
no longer just in faith, but in Jesus I will now forever praise

PRAY, WHERE CAN WISDOM BE FOUND

The price of wisdom is beyond rubies
Coral and jasper are not worthy of mention
It cannot be bought with the finest gold
Nor can its price be weighed out in silver	
There is a mine for silver
And a place where gold is refined
But wisdom is found in fearing the Lord
And to shun evil is understanding
For the LORD gives wisdom
From his mouth come knowledge and understanding

It's Not A Cult

It's not a cult:
It's a Savior saving my life.
It's a Savior saving your life.
It's our Savior saving our lives.
It's not too late.
It's never too late!

The path of life

Sometimes life seems like its all a downhill road,
like nothing you do makes a difference in the outcome of your life.
At times I have felt like a ship lost in the sea needing a lighthouse to shine a light and
rescue me.
One night I felt like I couldn't go on for another second,
it was then that I decided to ask God for help.
I said "God, if you are really real and really out there please help me!"
Crying as if it were my last moment alive I felt a sudden warmth surround me,
I felt assurance like what we seek from our parents when we are young and need to be
comforted.
I knew it was God, he made it real to me.
I know now that life can seem unfair at times and the road isn't always covered with
roses, there is not always an obvious sign of which direction you should go.
When it feels like you want to give up, don't.
Cry out to God like you would your mommy or daddy when your a kid and scared, even if you
don't really know for sure if he exists, once you do that you will know for sure.
Jesus healed my heart, my life is nowhere near perfect but at least I know I don't have to
walk this path of life alone, God carries me through the rough patches and walks besides
me when I am on more stable ground.
If you want a change in your life and never want to feel alone again ask Jesus Christ to
come into your heart and live in you and show you his love.
The thing about Jesus is that unlike any other person in this world, he will never leave
you or back stab you or hate you for what you have done or said.
He just forgives you and fills you with his love.
The path of life can be uncertain but the road you choose to walk can be made easier with
Jesus Christ walking beside you along the way.

WHO IS HE

There's a Man Who's behind me,
Who protected me in everyday,
Who give what I want,
And Who saved me of being a sinner.
He is my lover,
He saw me all the times,
He always one step behind me,
But Who is He?,
He never leave me,
He carry me all the way.
In every challenges I had He is with me,
He choose the right path for me to go.
I trust my life to Him,
Likewise He trust me.
But Who is He?.
He accept me as what I am.
He is my savior,
He is my guardian,
He is my angel,
He is my friend,
And He is my everything.
At last He told His name
I am Jesus Christ.

When My Depression Runs High

The sunshine is shining outside
And I'm stuck inside
I don't have any feelings anymore
Yet everything I am trying to hide
Pain comes in different forms
This type of me hurts the worst
I break when my depression runs high
That's when I'm cursed.
God, please help me.

Your Choice

I.
Finally. It is here.
The Judgement Day that is.
He will judge our hearts, not just our actions.
This is a good day for the Born-Agains, but not the sinners.
This day is great and horrid alike.
The Happiest and saddest day ever.
This day will choose your fate,
Heaven or Hell.
Your Choice.

II.
This is hard, taking it to school everyday
Afraid for myself, and everyone alike.
Taking this book everywhere.
I will get criticized made fun off, and beat up possibly.
But, I do this for You and You alone.
You will give me strength and courage to do this.
Now I am happy for myself and everyone alike.

III.
Oh Lord,
When will it be?
Now?
Later?
Soon?
Far away?
Close?
When will the return be?
Please just give me
A hint,
A clue,
An answer,
Or nothing at all.
It is your choice
Goodbye Peace Love
Amen

IV.
This is it.
The nerves are gone.
The Big show,
Getting in front of the youth
Telling them the way, the truth, the only passage.
Is You

TIME

Eternity is endless, but time is measured by a “beginning” and an “end”
But from the beginning of creation, male and female made he them
Historical parenthesis within eternity the flow of time
Preparatory, Fulfillment, Consummation three distinct phases of time
Time, the historical framework in which things happen, yours and mine
Creation, Regeneration, Redemption, the nature of time
Soothing wounds of the heart, body healing accommodation of time
Time was given for our "benefit
Don’t look at oneself as timeless misfits
Our real home is in the heavenlies, "outside of time
Make haste all ye men it’s God’s time, seek refuge this present time
From events and occurrences shadows of what to come end –of- time

THE HOLIDAY'S THRILLING LAUGHTER ECHOES AGAIN

The Christmas Tree with its twinkling 
tiny, colored lights
were as festive as this spirit could be....
seeking a chocolate treat;
hundreds of present that took hours
to wrap lay underneath it...
there was something for everybody!
Didn't the joyful angel sing from higher
accompanied by lyres? 


The Holiday's thrilling laughter
echoes again with voices that warm up
the coldest heart in town...
is anyone coming tonight and spent
the snowy night caroling with me?       


Peter and Jane, the nice kids next door,
drop in and hand me a present...
so delightful is their greeting,
" Merry Christmas, Sir! " 
Suddenly my cheerless face glows...
a warm emotion tingles me over,"
" Merry Christmas to you, 
and thanks for remembering a lonely 
neighbor who thought nobody cared! "


Towards midnight I looked to the East,
there I spotted the same star that the Magi followed...
it was getting brighter and brighter,
and standing to admire that wondrous light,
I started singing and praising Him 
as all neighbors came out and joined me...
then I stopped wishing that the Holiday's thrilling laughter
would echo again! For once, snow didn't feel cold
being surrounded by their warmth!

Almost Ready to Go

Almost Ready to Go
How does one pack up and move to an area of destruction?
How does one take all of their mustard seeds and place them on the window sill?
I am about to take the biggest leap of faith I have ever taken in my life 
And I say “I am ready to take the plunge with you, my Lord!”
Where ever you lead me, even if in the middle of a cyclone
I will go! Send me! Don’t skip over me and use someone else!
I have been in training for this moment my entire life!
No fanciness
No lingerie
Just a single suitcase, a Bible, and a box of protein bars
We will walk right into the middle of hell together side by side
Just like we used to in the olden days
I am ready to go where ever you lead me, Lord
Let me tidy up my house a bit first!

Storm

Nothing but a waste
you’re just a reckless disgrace
too much power
for a deceiver

It's not right
I see light
It's not near enough
for me to go 

It's my choice
so don't you treat me like a play toy
I'm not yours
to control

Cause I will storm in after you
If you take her far away from me
And I will storm in after you
If you take her to the grave with thee

You take our race for granted
and you're highly overrated
you're always taking
my friends

It's not right
I see light
It's not near enough 
for me to go

It's our choice
so don't you treat us like we're play toys
we're not yours
to control

I will storm in after you
If you take them far away from me
And I will storm in after you
If you try and take them to the grave

Meaning of christmas

The meaning of christmas
Isnt about Santa Claus.
Isnt about presents.
Isnt about christmas music.
It's about christ being
Born on christmas day.
So we celebrate,
To remember our
Christ Being born in a manager.
Cause God sent us his Son
To be a scarifice.
And save us from
Being damned to our sin.

Love without End

Why does my heart go on weeping
Why my eyes bare these tears…
Why must I still feel so lonely?
Even in a crowd.. 
full of laughter and cheer

Yet.. I still feel so out of place.. 
and in such despair
Still am in wonder… 
For these moments  
Within this life-time here
loneliness goes on for years… 

Why does my heart go on wondering
Wonder what if .. 
this could be..
The moment I have been awaiting for all my life
The one whom fills-up my dreams

Wondering when my time shall come
That my Prince shall ride like the wind
He will come and sweep me off my feet
And dance the dance with me…
Beholding Love without end…

Why yet..  still in my heart 
Beholds shadows of such lowliness 
and times Emptiness grows..  
soon in time.. knowing 
my life here shall come to an end

As deep inside my heart awaits
beholding Love awaiting for the Pearly gates
Where there be such Glorious Happiness  
Love Forever in Time Showing..  
as I will be eternally born-again…. 
Into Our Heavenly Father’s Glory.. 
Beholding Jesus Christ
Undying Love without end..

The Painted Glass

People love Jesus or so they do profess
The outside brings a smile while the souls a wicked mess
Judgment thoughts flow through the veins
Compassion just a myth
Indeed the love of Jesus is put to the ultimate test

Don’t let your eyes deceive you
Some are rotten to the core
The smile is just a front open window to the soul
In general most are smarter than given credit for
They see right through the painted glass
Full of hate and scorn

Saying you love Jesus
Are more than just some words
It is though put into action
Spreading joy throughout the world
To show a face that does not match
The person deep within
Is a wasted life of not effect 
And therein lies the sin

A Walk Through A Misty Forest

Come walk with me through God's country
Leaves crackling beneath our feet
Nary a breeze
Just a soft touch of dew against our cheeks

Many trails for us to choose
Still....no matter which one we do
I'm sure any should lead to beauty
Now traveling down our chosen path

Realizing this is a different world
From whence we came
Free of city sounds
So quiet....except for nature's songs

A chattering squirrel scampering up a tree
The eagle
Her wings lifting her from lofty redwood perch
Free to soar above this glorious canopy of life

Then as we round a bend in our journey
A babbling brook so sweetly clear
Quenches a mother deer
Her baby fawn by her side

What lovely peaceful creatures
Oh what lessons we could learn from them
Looking skyward to the tops of these majestic trees
So lucky we are

To stand among them
These living breathing towers
Many over 2,000 years in growth
Magnificent monuments to nature

Already saplings before Jesus Christ's birth
He came here then to save us all 
Would it not make sense to save these great trees
These living reminders of the gift of our creation

Why do you curse me

If killing is a problem solving key.
Believe me I shall also try to flee.
We killed thousands in 9/11,
We killed thousands in Iraqi sandy cabin.
We are killing thousands in Afghan War,
We trained to kill/die in Pakistan’s shore.
Do we try to learn a lesson?
God will keep us in heaven a religious fashion.
Arab will die to live on Earth,
What was truth before Lord Mohammed’s birth?
Lord Jesus Christ was born Christian,
What’s wrong in Jews living fun?
Mohammed and Jesus they played on soil,
They roasted their jobs to sweat boil.
They never sit idle and demand food free from God,
They never used to win human a religious rod,
They were polite and shared their views,
They never threw on wrong their shoes.
Conversation was their only tool to use,
Let me know whom they have abuse.
Forgiveness and mercy, they produced a shield,
They grazed their sheep on the earth field.
Do they ask God they shall give a shelter in Heaven?
They will punish that hit by a Robin.
What’s in Quran or a Bible?
Go to Heaven and kill a human tribal.
I learnt a message,’ how to live on Earth’.
That’s why Nature has our human birth.
A religious philosophy is superb,
If it cut my poverty curb.
I work and work to pay off the bills,
And always crying what are politics hells?
Wrongs and wrongs never learn a lesson,
To kill innocents for their outrageous fashion.
To compromise to strengthen crime,
To corrupt nature to share a winning ham. 
If hell or heaven is also a living space,
Then why we have a new Mars race.
If heaven has a better living home,
Then why have a human dilemma of innocence trauma.
Something is wrong in human brain,
Lives in tense and talking about strain.

You Touched My Heart

You Touched My Heart

The Love you gave to me,
It lights me like the Angel rays,
As the winds breeze across the heavens,
As the trees sway forth in the breeze.

Answering questions within my heart,
Unconfusing my humble mind,
Yet you speak your words aloud,
It seemes I am no longer blinded.

The answers all came flooding in,
As you touche my heart with your hand,
The knowledge that you give to me
Within my LIFE I shear to all.

I understand that the events in my LIFE
That troubled me this far are nothing,
As they are nothing to be frightened of,
As you said, I am born unto you, Lord.

I thank you Lord very graciously,
As I speak Your words aloud,
I will shear the love You've given me,
You have made me feel at peace.

As I now know why I am loved,
Thank you Lord for all You have done.

What If We All

What if we all
Just stopped where we are
And sent a smile to the one next door?

What if we all
Just stopped where we are
And reached out to those who've done us wrong?

What if we all
Extended a serving hand
To the grieving, homeless, hungry, and downtrodden?

What if we all
Just stopped where we are,
Joining hands,
Offering thanks,
Forgiving,
Laughing,
Hugging,
Loving,
And embracing;
Smiling as our futures shined
Because God has blessed us this life!

Thank God

He pours out His love
Across the entire world

In spite of pain and depression
Worry, fear and disillusionment
There is joy and enthusiasm
Reassurance, faith and encouragement

He fills hearts with His light
Rekindling love in each beat

In spite of storms that linger on
The thunderous pounding and lightning bolt
There is sunshine and rainbows
Which create a sense of happiness

He renews troubled minds
With a gentle touch of hope

In spite of the troubles and strife
The sorrows, grief and heartache
There is a dream to dream, a second chance
A better way to restore today

He fills up a life with hope, faith and love
And every good gift from above.

Take a moment to thank God 
For all that He has given us!!!

Prayer

I prayed for food and I prayed for rent, 

I prayed for these things to be heaven sent, 

I prayed in the morning and I prayed at night, 

To help out my brother and the mentally ill in their plight, 

I prayed at my job site, 

I prayed at the dinner table, 

I prayed that men should not kill like Cain and Abel, 

I prayed against war and slavery on every shore, 

I prayed for the victims of criminals, the lepers , the poor, 

I prayed and prayed until this very same day, 

When I received a knock on the door, 

" You have not my money! Then you must go away!"

Living the Dream

I am living the dream.
I stand here today,
Cannot believe what I am about to say,
But I am living the dream.
At times, it's tough
And it is not always easy.
I might be condemned
For choosing this path in life;
Some may think it's too bag of a risk.
When we give it our all,
Our passion and our might,
We can overcome and forget the fear
To become who we are meant to be.
I stand here today,
Another tear ready to wipe away:
You can do all you aspire to do!
Set your mind and never give up!
If I can do it,
You can too!
I can't believe I'm about to say this,
But I am living my dreams.
I am living the dream.

The Voice Of Jesus

The voice of jesus as he speaks to his children, is so sweet and gentle it is like a breez on a 
warm summers day.

It is like a gentle rain, falling down from heaven, so refreshing so cooling on the skin. The 
voice of jesus is like the waves gently lapping on some shore far away.

The voice of jesus is the still small voice, that you hear when you settle and still yourself in 
silence.  Be still lewt him speak to your heart today.

If you see me crying and hugging myself, don't think I'm weird.
I'm crying out to the Lord!
I see God and hear Him in everything.

Rain

I see the rain,
Dancing across the sidewalk,
Carefully placing each drop
One at a time,
They flow with each other,
Gracefully and in sync,
As a dance from the heavens
Praising the One who made them,
And as I watch them,
I become hypnotized,
Almost entranced,
By their beauty

Worship

The sea flowing
In low speed
Into the open ocean
That never gets drunk
Or satiated drinking 
The natural salt.

The sea dancing
In undulating meander
To unheard numbers
With varying emotions

Hot when angered
Sinking high tech ships
To drown life vested crew.

Cool when pleased
Allowing a vulnerable canoe
To row with ease
Sparing its helpless paddler.

See the sea
Breathing the sea breezes
To soothe the atmosphere.
They say it had been
Even before our births.

Carrying the glory
Of the sun
And moon daily and nightly
Respectively

How it stands glorious 
Enough for a deity.
Yet that would
Incur for men,
The wrath of Jealous.

Depression and ME

LEAVE ME ALONE!
Oh what?
Are you too weak to handle
The little games I like to play?
GET OUT OF MY HEAD YOU DEMON
BEFORE YOU TAKE ME AWAY!
Two can play this contest
I don't like to be alone
STOP MOCKING ME YOU TRAITOR
GOD IS STRONGER YOU KNOW!
Then why doesn't He take your pain away?
IT'S JUST A TEST YOU SEE
FOR WITH HIM I AM INFINITELY STRONGER
THAN WITH YOU I COULD EVER BE!

Grace

While I thought you slept, I broke into your mansion to rob you.
I should have been shot on scene as a trespasser
With only the stain of my blood left to be scrubbed away,
But you fed me, clothed me, and gave great gifts to release me from need.

In the act, you caught me defiling your bride.
Your boiling anger should have overwhelmed and terrified me.
Strong hands of a passionate husband should have clenched around my neck.
Instead of strangling me, you embraced me as if I were your closest friend.

Why was I spared from the cross that I deserve?
Even now I feel the gaps in my hands where the nails were not.
Why do you sustain when you should decrease and destroy?
Each breath was stolen from the lungs of your son.

Why is forgiveness your desire, and not the exacting of revenge?
The gavel is in your hand and the charges against me are read.
Why, even more, am I the blessed traitor who was given clemency?
My actions deserve death, yet you pour treasure in my lap.

This seems overly ridiculous to all of my dull senses.
I'm confused by the stark contrast of my new fate.
Baffle me daily so that daily I beg for your guidance.
My intelligence is insufficient as eyes are to emit light.

Remind me constantly of the buffoon that I was
So I might be first to cry for mercy for others like me
Remind me consistently of how you relieved my immense debt
So my dread fear for the lives of my new friends might vanish

If I insolently stand against you in anything your will seeks
Maintain your compassion toward me and direct me back to your side
If I habitually abandon my post due to my sheer neglect
Find me again and discipline me in your swift grace

I am a low and foolish individual who mourns over my isolation.
You celebrate with your community of faithful followers.
Include me once more in the joys of your resounding favor,
And often prompt me to speak of you, who thwarted my plans.

Why Can't We Be Love

Why can't we be love
Beloved
It's harder to hate
With chains and heavy weight
And anger that separates
Rather than love undefined
No barriers of any kind
No mountains to climb
Only love to unbind
We push innocence down
Condemning like we understand
When we don't have the first clue
As to what they may be going through
We cast an image, a people as wrong
Because they don't resemble tradition
A little different than before
With looks a little different
With color a little different
With identity a little different
Oriented in a little different way
God's perfect Children
With love a little different
Can we accept to accept
Once and for all
Can we expect to accept
From now and for all
Let the message be heard
Jesus is alive in His World
The Word comes to life
Thank You Christ for Your Sacrifice.

Christmas

Very wonderful winter season, pretty lights and decorations everywhere you go.

A time to spend with the ones you love, to create great memories.

Giving presents to those you love, and receiving presents from those who love you.

Beautiful decorated Christmas cookies and desserts that look good to eat.

Lovely decorated pine trees with many nice ornaments and bright lights.

Remember the birth of our savior Jesus the reason of the Christmas season.

Love's Origin

Why do we love? 
Why?! 
We were first loved, that is why. 
By a God so great, so holy! 
We don’t deserve this great love, 
Yet He is willing to give it, 
Willing to be born a human, 
Willing to suffer, 
Willing to die... 
Just to show His great love for us! 
What more do we need 
to show us that our great God loves us?! 
We love, because we were first loved... 
By a God so great, so holy...

It's About Them

It's not about me;
It never was,
It never should have been,
And it never will.
It's not about me;
It's about them.
It's about Him.
It's about giving them all they need
To get them back on their feet.
It's about showing them hope
So they may be filled with the Spirit
And know that things will be alright again.
It's about serving Him
So we may show His love
And spread His messages for all the world to hear.
It's about inspiring.
It's about teaching faith.
It's about giving hope.
It's about showing love.
It's not about me;
It's about them.
It's about Him.

What if GOD was one of us

That old age question, what does GOD look like?

What if you have already met? . . You might have seen him today?

Did you look closely at that stranger that needed help when you just walked on by?
Remember that charity worker that asked for a minute of your time?

Maybe we dont get to see GOD in his true form yet, but that dosnt mean we doont see him in this life. 

Don't be so quick to walk by . .
Dont be so quick dismiss that situation were you could have helped . . 

GOD sees everything and sometimes he's right there testing you . . Dont give up on the world just yet

The Voice

Once in a vision, a raging storm soar
I was slight above it, soaring through the air
Fear griped me, it whispered death into my ear
The waves were boisterous , the waves were a raging inferno

I struggled to fly, the devil’s exploring sly
In the flight I saw a glorious light above me then
Suddenly, in my flight I heard a voice
It was one of the Archbishop Nicholas Duncan William’s
The voice thundereth, a kind that scattereth

“According as His Divine Power”

For the first time the voice held me in His care
It brought me into comfort, a Zion fort
Imbued with power in the flight, I begin to soar into the night

The voice made me strong, I lay upon it all night long
The voice whispered courage in me in that perilous flight
And bore me on eagle’s wings when all was quite

“The voice of the Lord is Powerful
The voice of the Lord is full of Majesty
The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon”- Ps 29:4-5

Easter Day, Spring Day

As He Died For Us

Held fast by hatred's unholy crucible,
Drawn limbs taking leave of sockets blue.
Head hanging in forsaken sadness,
Praying for those responsible.

Forgiveness granted in absence of understanding,
All past and future wrongs laid on agony's shoulders.
Torture spikes of indignity piercing bleeding hands,
Enduring that crucifixion to save all us sinners.

The Eyes of My Savior

~~The Eyes of My Savior~~

The eyes of my Savior are aqua blue
When you gaze upon them it matches a noon day sky
The eyes of my Savior are thoughtful
Always thinking of others above himself
He has warm thoughts of compassion that can be read like a weather vane in his eyes

If he is melancholy you will know…
If he is happy they will sparkle…
If he is flabbergasted he looks acutely upwards…
And if he is angry they become as hot coals…

The eyes of my Savior are soft and sweet like a warm sunset
If you gaze upon them for too long you would be lulled to sleep
His stare is certainly relaxing
The eyes of my Savior are a sure thing
They are constantly searching from east to west
They are scanning the hearts of mankind

What will he find within your heart?
Will he find love or disappointment?  
Just gaze within his eyes and you too will see 
That his eyes are as deep as eternity
Soft butter lashes
Eyebrows as brown as a bear
When he bats his brown eye lashes you will see his meekness
A pathway to his heart
The eyes of my Savior

FAITH IS A WISH THAT ALWAYS COMES TO PASS
THE SUN RISES AND BREAKS THE DAWN
FAITH IS A LIGHT THAT SHINES THRU EVERY DARKNESS

THE MUSIC PLAYS AND EACH VOICE IS IN TUNE
FAITH IS A SONG THAT EVERYONE CAN SING
THE PATH IS CHOSEN AND THE WAY IS CLEAR
FAITH IS A ROAD THAT LEADS TO HOME

A SEED IS PLANTED AND LOVE BLOOMS
FAITH IS A LOVE THAT NEVER DIES

FAITH IS A TRUTH THAT CANNOT BE DENIED

FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS YET TO ARRIVE

My Final Request

When I'm laid to rest for my final time
I don't want anyone to shed a tear for me
Because you only need one gift to meet me again
And that is to know the Lord Jesus Christ!!!


Just think about it if you have that gift
We will meet with each other again
Somewhere where we won't feel any more pain
And there are only bright and sunny days. 

I get so excited when I think about
The reunion we will have if we have that gift
We will be able to walk and talk with other christians
And where everybody will know one another. 

No one knows the exact time or day
When they will breathe their last breath
So you need to be ready at all times
Because you never know when Jesus will call you home.

Joys from Heavens

The time of year when the joys 
Rain down form Heavens
When the families get together, 
When the children look up in  hope
Santa’s fill surprise in the socks at night
When the snowman appears in gardens
There comes a the giggles and chants
Colored balls in trees and stars shining
Exchanges of greetings nights of prayers
We gather to celebrate the coming of Joy
Night to celebrate the Holy Jesus
Night to celebrate new Life, for its
The time of year when joys 
Rain down from Heaven…

Fear Not For Behold I Bring Tidings Of Great Joy

In this time the cloth is unwoven, the threads laid bare.   
Most of the dung removed, cleared, given no fare.
Massive steel plates hold back the uninvited from boarding the train.
Going and coming returning from far, how special the precious Saved Ones are!
Not as many by count, as expected to be, go only the accepted glorified in He. 
The One by name Jesus Christ is He, by birth our Savior, God’s only Son.
The rapture has started transformation begun!  
“Multitudes Missing” is what is said both of the living and of the dead.
Glory shone at the uniting above as Jesus ascended taking the Throne.
Angels and Saints at the table were there, celebrating the beginning 
As promised by some, in the Book it is written the time has come. 

To those uninvited still sinning below Tribulation unending they endure
Because death is not given for the unforgiven there is no cure.
Now that The Holy Spirit is gone replaced by the unholy one.
Three and one half years his reign will be before his anointment as 
King of the land, then after another one half and three
From his throne he gathers his forces to make his stand.  
In Jerusalem, after the Temple’s complete, is the place Armageddon has come. 
Many the forces pressing the land foul and dirty sinners are they.
Angels from above sweet music they play, as their swords slash, many they slay.
The rest are all gathered sorted like sheep the wicked on the left and thrown into the deep
Where welcomed by him unholy for sure cured not forever burning in hell.

Be it certain, known for sure, Jesus has returned all hail the King.
For a thousand years he will reign all living forever no sickness or pain.
He is my God the only pure one born of a mortal, Spirit raised, God’s Son.
On the cross our sin debt He paid glory forever so easily gained
Not by good works impossible to do only in accepting as Savior, our Lord, King.
In living and doing such a small little thing why do so many risk certain despair?
Is it that we tangled in our lives, mundane as they are, have little care
For those less willing the truth to be know spread the message they must be shown!
Think now of forever the price they bear become an ambassador in Jesus’ name!
Hot is the pit with its flame burning bright engulfing a loved one what a terrible sight.
The time is at hand the cloth becoming bare; Jesus is the answer show you dare.

Child of Heaven

You gaze at me with 
Child’s eyes, yet I wonder
At all you have seen
Before you came here.
I sing you to sleep
But I know it’s nothing
Like the music you knew.
The meager bread and milk
Does not compare to
The glorious feasts you
Must have had before.
Nothing have I to
Offer that was not yours;
And when you wrap your
Hand around my finger,
I’m overwhelmed with humility.

The Good Lord, awakened by God

Shaky at first,
But just let go,
Let the good lord take hold,
The first few years were rough,
But the lord is tough.
Your world was unkind,
But you were saved,
The treasure of knowing Jesus was your find,
You were taught about, lust, sin, and bliss,
Taught to keep
That first precious kiss,
The one your husband wouldn't have to miss,
Because you waited,
You got hated,
Because f all those boys that wanted to be first,
But this kiss they didn't deserve.
The lord is who you serve,
He is the risen king,
He broke free from that prison ring.
Jesus died on that cross,
To serve as our boss,
He knows what's right,
 But Satan will try to fight.
The first few years were rough,
But the good lord sure is tough,
You were saved,
All because of his glory today.

A Man of God

A man of God is a priceless treasure

Worth more than frankincense or myrrh

A man of God is the fairest in the land

Who can behold his beauty?

Inner strength

Exuding peace

A simple harmony

Fully reliant upon his Lord

A man of God is a precious commodity

As he journeys to the heart of his Creator

Good Ol' Triple-Six And The Eternal Drive-By - Part 2

- and, anyway, who breaks wind over double-M, a. k. a. Manson,

Marilyn?

I'll give a ride on my razor any day to

The-Second-Prime-of-Nine-to-the-Sixth,

who was around long before CD's, DVD's, MTV, and YOU / MYtube,

spitting out the healing heat, the wound-cleansing apocalypse

of what some denounce as straight from No. One Brimstone Pl., way

before double-M, way before the Twelfth Symbol,

The Serpent-Wrestler

was kicked downstairs out of sight, usurped by what used to be the

thirteenth,

Yeah, and one plus three is four - rex mundi, mundane king

of only the world,

while One plus two equals Three - sign of sweet Goddesses, of

divinities

and The Twelfth Symbol butt-****ing Marilyn with the Serpent, man!...

... and my razor ain't my father's

road-raging interstate-hog...

... my godpappy, Billy Blake, still loony

out of his goddam mind,

drumming away for Good Ol' Triple-Six with one hand and giving

decaffeinated, unsweetened Jesus an enema of infidel wine with the

other

while howling Te Deum for

uncross-legged, staggering Jesus

failing the sobriety test,

Fallen Jesus! oh my lord, the world must be cumming to an end!

without promise of rescue by the pie-in-sky-hook of empty redemption,

least of all, from Billy Boy with foolish heaven's bees of wisdom

buzzing about his balding pate, stinging his soul even more alive

with fire,

igniting a gnostic explosion to blow the piston-heads

off my father's gas-hog of false gods,

laying a circle of holy fire down the centuries

and giving me the courage to razor-pedal with my own two feet down

that road still on the map

to the cathouses, outhouses, hovels and Isis temples

of court jesters' wisdom under the Twelfth Sign

where everyone has the hope-salvation

of failing crooked judgment's sobriety test,

where Goddesses disrobe the secret of themselves,

of Gods and Everyone to celebrate the Cosmic Dance, Copulation of

Universal Soul,

while William Blake yanks the spigot off the sacred keg

to intoxicate the Serpent

and my razor-wheels right off of me.

Yet, what does it matter I've lost the wheels of mortality?

since - believe it or not - no longer uptight, decaffeinated,

constipated or unsweetened,

a backslidden, paganly born-again Jesus is drunk as a skunk!

like me, on the pulse of Good Ol' Triple-Six rapping His uncouth butt

off in the eternal drive-by of cosmic rhythm and rhyme,

So there, Manson, take that up the ass!

* try coffee /java / a cup 'o joe, brotha, sista!

At The King's Feet

On a bright and balmy eve, a certain lady has no more tricks up her sleeve
... no way for her heart to continue to deceive its self and God.
On the edge of a drive that overlooks the cities lights, she cried 
out, alone, broken.
Harboring no more ill beliefs about Jesus, herself and others.  
Still, she could not help but to reflect on how some friends were 
so sugary sweet on the outside; yet so full of lies of which they 
may not have known.
Wide open was her heart to ones such as these, but they came 
with fangs not apparent at first, biting her to slake their thirst.  
The red current of her young, redeemed blood had been poisoned 
on the inside.
Thus her walk with Jesus came to a screeching halt for a time, 
so that she could place her brokenness at her King's feet.  
Then she turned all of her heart to Him, her one and only true friend.
He gathered and held her tight in His arms, taking all the hurt and 
mistrust on the inside of Himself.
She knew that she had a safe place to go in order to learn and 
grow from what truly were poor choices... poor choices which were 
hers alone with no one else to blame.
With Jesus she'd always have a home with the one who loves her 
and treats her like He said He would.
So she was able to walk on her feet in this world again with 
her life-long friend.

Never Forget

What will happen when the public looks down on you?
Do you hide? 
Do you hang your head in sorrow? 
Don’t let it get to you! 
Know that God will always love you! 
No matter what He is there for you. 
Never forget that. 
He is always there. 
He has a purpose for everything that happens. 
Even when things seem bad, 
He has a way to work things out!

Always Losing

It seems I’m always losing
Just when I think you’re finally mine
You wander again, seeking the arms of another
And I’m left alone, with just the memory of your smile
I’m always loosing.....

Your songs of love and devotion remain in my heart
I still see you clinging to my arms, drawing from my strength
Just as I feel once more the sheer ecstasy of being with you
In an instant, I realize....
You have gone....again
Gone!
I’m always losing...

Who am I? I am the great I AM!
But...who am I to YOU?
At times just a discarded toy hovering at the edge of your existence
Or the shelter you run to when storm clouds gather
The lucky charm around your neck
But never, never what I long to be
The very air you breathe
The core of your being
The reason you live
Always losing...


If only....
If only I could enter your world and gently lead you to...
FEEL the strength of my love
SEE the desire of my heart for you
TOUCH the blood I’ve spilt to call you mine
TASTE the tears I shed when you wander away 
Then ...then you’d surely let me win the battle for your heart.
Today, my love....
Let me win today...
My heart will break if I LOSE your love for eternity...
No...NO! I cannot...I will not...lose you!
Oh, my precious love, please....won’t you let me win?

No Worries

No Worries
The Lord is my shepherd the keeper of all of my hopes and all of my dreams. I hold Him close to my heart and we will never part. His light will always be seen every step of my walk, even when I talk, we will never be apart.
My trust in the Lord is sight unseen and it my faith the keep me clean. My problems maybe many but there is no need to worry, because of my belief is just to strong, in Jesus I just cannot go wrong. There a song in my soul that sends my spirit high, praising my Lord until the day I die and I know will be at His side. Keeping in mind that Jesus divined nature is not all it’s for all and it is not hard to find. It’s a gift that the Father as give to all of mankind.
Now to time to tell you about a child that was born in glory, salvation was the pearl that that was bought into this world. To the poor and the despaired He gives hope and healing His power ever revealing. Love and praise to His people He did give peace within if you stop your sinning.
The dead He will raise and true life He gives meaning for all who stop their sinning. Those that where in power, never would they honor, instead they feared the one that was foretold as the prophecy was unfolded. Crimes they cried, this was the lie which sentenced our savior on earth to die and fulfilling what was to be. From heaven to earth He came to teach us the way, and earth to the cross, a debt that was not His did He paid. From the grave He ascended home to His throne, there He sits and he not alone waiting for those the price He did paid so that they may life and have it more absurdly for every and a day.
Now why is it so hard for us to have faith and trust for the Christ who love us  oh so much, so that we that we can have peace and find everlasting life , free from suffering in paradise.

The seed of Christ

Reaching up to me on the road,
She began to talk:

Walking to the corner's
Funeral Parlor, where
Employed as
A make up artist

Noticing my horror, 
She stopped for a moment,
Her lips curved into
An angelic smile, then spoke:

Did you know that
Death is only a dream and 
The body so much more
Than corpse or clay?

Our body is  the seed of Christ, 
Sprouting, flourishing, 
Withering and resurrecting  
By Divine Command!

In the colors of the rainbow
The body preserved, to see the new

Holy Weak

The world has a choice, Julius Caesar or Jesus Christ, either the weakness of strength or the strength of weakness - victorious. All of us are braggart Peter yet alone of His disciples he creeps after Christ in His captivity as Peter is perplexed that his hero descends from as we say today from 'hero to zero'. Power contradicts his Saviour's sayings, contradiction is Peter's worldly weapon replying to the world's honesty, imploringly he protests Christ's connection until the many dyed cock crow's twice at Peter's deception; this joke of Christ call 'Rock' that He will sift as the salt of the sea of Galilee. Sin for many today makes no sense only crime can cause recompense; Jesus Christ's sacrifice is void in us till faith, hope, charity play their part. 'My God, my God why have you forsaken me?' slams through the ages no more than now where our anomie seems our fate in our confusing estate unless God resurrected Christ then our failure can be falsified.

God's Children


We live in a human world and He lives in His now is't it a shame
with all you can have and do with Him you chose to live in the world  
Two worlds exist that will not be the same   
Walking together hand in hand through the rain    
In God's land where everything is planned for tomorrow
we have His love, we have His heart, we have Him guiding us 
it's never too late to turn away form your LIFE to start agai  
In stead of running through the rain looking for nothing  
In God's land where everything is planned for tomorrow
How happy we would be if only we were truly God's children
Why can't we be more like God's children

Holy Is the Lamb

Humbly He took my human flesh,
humbly dwelt in Mary's womb,
humbly walked the dusty roads,
teaching, healing, breaking bread
Holy is the Lamb.

Gently He gave Himself to me,
gently touched my fallen form,
gently lifting from the mire 
my broken, needy, sin-sick soul.
Holy is the Lamb.

Freely He gave His all,
freely suffered scorn and shame,
freely bent beneath the scourge
within Pilate's judgement hall.
Holy is the Lamb.

Surrendered to the cross,
surrendered, bearing all my guilt,
surrendered to death's bitter call
He gave his utmost, gave me all.
Holy is the Lamb.

Risen, to give me new life,
risen that I might bear His name,
risen that I might never die
the second death but reign with Him.
Holy is the Lamb.

Guess who just is all around us every day
Our mild-eyed Lord that is always around
He has not changed at all He's the same 
But friend's, I still think you are crazy

Yes Jesus is all around us

As your always asking if He is still around
How He is and where He could be found
Told you He was living around waiting
On you to call on Him to come in your hearts

Yes Jesus is all around us

You know that Church that you used to visit a lot
Every Sunday you would be in the front row, listening 
When I told of Jesus' live and how He wanted us to live
You were the one who stepped up and got saved 

Yes Jesus is all around us
Spread His word around to all People of all Nations

Christmas Poems For Kids And Teenagers IV: Can Anything

Can something be more tempting Than new hot cup cakes? Can candies be as attractive and so loving as chocolates? Can a story be as appealing as the end of Cinderella’s tale? Or as exciting as my friends’ birthday parties? What about as cheerful as Barney and friends? The new dresses, the snow-white the season’s tree and family re-union as warming and perfect as they are it’s still not about them but about Jesus in Christmas Hallelujah!

Knights Never Say Goodbye

Least not this one
No matter what direction
This man should ride
Yours first, soldier second 

Path leading to you
Your face my beacon
Shining day or night
Always calling me home

Battles may forsake me
Yet never have you
Your silken scarlet honor
Flowing beyond my neck

Courage given by Jesus
Desire held by you
Both my real strength
Such love conquering evil

Jesus - King of the world

Great is our Lord
Who is our gift
He came to the world to save us
He righted what was once wrong
He invites us in His goodness
He graces us with His presence
He will great things for our good
We know good from evil
Because of Him
We know right from wrong
Because He graciously shows us
We know insights and wisdom
Because He shares upon us
Great is our Lord
Who came to the world one day
And forever we are indebted to Him
We feverously grace His love 
To one and to all 
We honor His keeping
We graciously welcome His presence
We come to know Him
With grace and contrite heart
With our opened yieldedness
With our love and affection
With arrayed wildness
He tames us
He loves us
He offers us a great governing
He graces us with deeds
He inhabits in us
And makes His gracious presence known
He is good – so good
We can be 
We can have
We can find
We can give
We can go
We can do
We can all win
Because of Him

Landscape for the little ones

Those mental landscapes, rocky deserts 
with long winding salt paths of tears, suffering

give an absurd direction, and always end 
into the many roaring tides of red and tan dunes

I am a confessional poet who understands well
the forty days of glory and the forty days of hell

Many wild horses run free inside me 
Their maniac depressive mood is always masculine and cruel

I let them trample over me, they crush my jittery self
It is a natural consequence of who God wants me to be. 

The hurting always leads me to a place that is beautiful.
It allows me to find Jesus meditating about the new earth

And in these devastating places, poets become
the voice of every little one suffering

Jesus

We all walk on a loose line that leads to debris

Silence 

Etched in the fabrication through the elapse in time,
The Lilley of the valley the bright & morning star/

The illumination in time through degrees of solace
A hand extends through the cosmic debris in circumstantial evidence;

Just to touch the very hem of his garment
Just to hear to pitter patter of soft sandeled feet...

~
A myraid chasm through a gulf fix in sight;

We all fall short in the midst of violation...
Having planted our seeds in its timely proclamation
A side was pierced for sorrow to be gained;
In times of want their is a clear change

In the violation of the innocent proned to bitter chains..
~

The hand to hold as you are told until the rights to you are sold;

Jesus in the garden pearls of sweat fallen down
Jesus in my heart while painting the town
Jesus after the rise in certain days to see
Jesus in the formidable way making sweet history
Jesus helping neighbor or the hero in disguise;
Jesus offering breakfast to his followers in disguise
Jesus who will pray in the tender hours of need
Jesus is in you & also in me!
~

Torn

With days in thought & delicate prayer with humble quest
A rest in view to its timely crest;
We each our given a choice regarding heaven & hell
Yet Jesus is the perfect gentleman who doesn't force himself on anyone

Through briars, asps & serpents layer...
Jesus
We all were born into the world & given a choice?
Repent for the days our cursed;
Don't live your lives in a fishbowl circling around year after year choose the fear
In sorrows quest the follow draws near in desolation filtered through a straw
A sore vex sway to take the time to bow the knee to pray
Some may even insist it ought not be that way yet who are they?

The liberal makes his or her heart fat on the worldly vices with false choices;
~

Through ages past as Abraham had grasped & Moses was exposed
Jesus
We watched on as you were ripped to shreads;
Your tender touch through eraser heads
In vile repute hence the opened door to explore...
Yet the past is the past & now is now
A heart saturated with truth thus in order to withstand the truest test in time
Elapsed fervor,

Bood soaked messenger exposed to the elements;
Jesus
Come into my heart I know I'm a sinner
I ask you to be my Lord & savior;
In Jesus name I pray,
Amen.

Now choose to celebrate your commitment with other believers in the fellowship;
Embrace the cross.
Amen

Waves of Life

Life was like a whirl wind that never slowed down
Everything was changing; so hard to keep my feet on solid ground
New people, new faces, 
New experiences, new places
It  was so hectic, so easy to get lost
Thrown around on the waves of life, tossed and tossed
Nothing made much sense anymore
Everything that once was, soon was unsure 
Until God stepped in and saved my life
Everything was  made new through Jesus Christ
Things started to make more sense, the picture’s coming into focus now
And I know I’ll be okay somehow
There through it all when times get tough
And there when things aren’t so rough
He is my shelter in the storm, a refuge for the weak
O my God, my life I lay at your feet
My darkest days have been made light
All through the power and love of Jesus Christ

One Glad Morning

One day when this life is over, I'll be with the one's gone on
Sing in the Heavenly choir, in that space saved for me.
I'll see all those who have answered the roll call
When God called their names, they had to answer.
Can you see me-I'll put on my long white robe-
Place my pure golden crown on the top of my head
No more worries, Jesus knows what I've been through
No aches and pains my body will be brand new.

One day when this life is over, I'll be with the one's gone on
Celebrate Jesus all the day, in my home built for me.
Pearly gates, Golden Streets, in his Holy presence
When he calls my name, I will have to answer.
I'll be so blessed to see Judy Cal who left not long ago
I will shout "halleluah" because I have missed her so.
Soon and very soon the sun will set -no more dawning
We'll rest for eternity-Oh..one glad morning.

Dear Mister Jesus II

Dear Mister Jesus I just wanted to come to You
Because there's something that scares me everytime I hear of another one
It's the stories that another school shooting has taken place
Jesus, just thought I'd bring it to You
Why did this have to happen to all of these young people
I guess I'll never understand truly the reasons why
It took an event like this to wake up the people of the world
And help them to realize that they needed to follow God's plan.

Dear Mister Jesus I also wanted to ask You
How this could of happened at a school
Where all of these young people had to witness the shooting
You know that they will never be the same again
After you go through a traumatic event like that
There's no way you could ever be the same again
But I know that God must have been at work during this time
Because just look at the number of lives that are touched.

Precipice Of Love

When we are in you that is true, running patiently walking in love                                       Precept upon precept the crescendo. The infatuation before it's time                                   But the true love watched me fall and offered His hand                                                   As the puppy love was crushed, by her words but not failing to build again                   Rebounding to new heights for a new friend; the sweet heart of then                                  Tumbling head over heels, casually growing into something that was not love at all              but feeling good out weighed the broken heart, so it seemed                                              Saying I love you, to go my own way but that carried more burdens than I knew                 But the true love watched me fall and offered His hand                                                    Yet I dusted myself off, then climbing again. If not a person then maybe in something. I found it to be weightless, yet when I fell, it hurt worse than them all                                 For falling deeper, brought me to the edge of another insanity                                          Yet the search for love compelled me. Rushing back to the top of the slope                          There looking out, thinking I do not even know. What love is?                                            Not in faces or things or even my dreams. Then I'll stop looking                                  Walking blindly and numb, falling over and over all that was before                                 But the true love watched me fall and offered His hand                                                 This time listening, I heard RUN but already ran. SO RUN AGAIN                                     Looking from teary eyes, yet leaping over obstacles of before. To now see the many kinds of love. Some from the earth, some from above coming to the edge of the cliff                   The height, the depth, the breadth; there is no end to His true love when you enter in         So I leaped into love's true hand, by His grace the Lord Jesus, I am flying this time             then He set me on the rock of His forgiving love, that I did not deserve                               He fills me with His true love from above. To love Him and all others                                 Running patiently walking in love but my true love watched me fall and offered His hand

Nothing to write home about

It was on the hanging tree, that we Romans got from the uppity Greeks, that they 

pinched from the perishing Persians. A fitting death for a criminal from where else but 

Galilee, great for a soldier's leave with its women and their dark dangerous eyes and 

the warm sometimes wild weather but the men there weird; notorious for its pathetic 

prophets.  We can't ignore rabble rousers, especially at Passover too, so we hanged 

him with two thieves for company making a chorus of the dying. This 'King of the Jews! 

Just three, so nothing really to write home about. One wonders why our officers even 

bothered when long ago in putting down Spartacus' revolt we Romans crucified five 

thousand or twice as many; our famed Imperial officials must have got so tired or too 

bored to be accurate; anyway they were only slaves and if we ever allow scum to win 

then our great civilisation, our liberty , would be under threat and we, our families too, 

being tortured to death! 

 

A common death, still, what if it is true that this Jesus came alive after three days? 

Many shrug their shoulders today as yesterday. How many for Easter Sunday lunch? 

What sports on the telly? Others annoyed. Why do these pesky Christians  insist 

on spoiling our well deserved holiday by marching through places in 'Christian' lands 

on - wait for it - 'Good Friday', with their dismal story that is not the Dawkins' truth? 



Today Christianity maybe is the world's most popular religion but it all happened so 

long, long ago in a land that still festers, annoying other lands, with no sign of justice 

and peace in the cradle of Christianity. Yet aptly named Von Ranker, founder of the 

scientific study of history, said this of Jesus Christ, "In the annals of world history He 

was incomparable!"

If u believe you can accomplish your goals 
With love beauty comes 
Joy is a precious talent

Hopefully by reading the scriptures 
U hear your message 
Then I shall done my job 
Because Jesus loves us all

A Near Death Experience

We were driving along a backroad
It was 4 am on January 22, 2014
Where snow had been drifting down
Without any attempt at playing,
I felt my tires tease me with a challenge
A slide toward the right side of the road
That slide was the good slide that was mirrored by
The second slide toward the left side of the road
Where the car was defenseless against a cliff
Where we road over and over and over
Flipping again and again, Totaling every part of the Subaru so that
We would never ride in this particular car again.
And, yes, this was  a near death experience and when 
I got out of the car and stood on the trampled snow
I raised my head to the sky and said Thank You God
In His Mercy, we were provided safety and security
In His Mercy, we were blessed with another day
In His Mercy, We discovered even more blessings!!

what evil lurks in the shadow of religion

what followed Jesus while he traveled alone?
well... God the father yes, but following Jesus 
to corrupt him, to destroy him,to defeat him, 
was sin, was evil, was one who if seen
by any but followers, would cower at its evil,
and bow in fear of what MAY happen if they do not.
we see it every day, and shrug for we cannot see, 
see the darkness that crawls lurking through and under
the shadow of religion, the very shadow 
of what is Holy, is interpreted as on thing
and seen as another, seen as a whole other,
other worldly, outer existent, world.  
and though we believe in Him
we all walk in its shadow
for we are not the Bible, for we are not of Holy
made in His image, found all over in His realm
and outside His world. but still living 
in the shadow of religion
we exist, we live... but do we repent?
yes? no? speak only to Him
to relieve yourself of your earthly scars
to release all of the weight
speak only to Him, for we are
in the shadow of religion... His religion
why do we say we are Holy
when we know... completely that we are not?
we may belong to Him, but are we Him?
do not yell but no, He is us, He is what He is.
follow him and you will be free
do not say you are Him, for you are not...
you are not Him... continue to walk
on this path, belong to Him
but you can still walk in the shadow of religion
evil lurks here, so does darkness
but light is in this shadow, and no matter
what or where you are, the light in this shadow
is stronger than darkness, anywhere in this
follow his path, and finish off 
ascending to the kingdom, the kingdom of Heaven,
of mercy, of bliss, you have endured,
endured enough, belong to Him, in His kingdom
let light live, for you will be with him.

Jesus

Once upon a time
a very long time ago
a child was born into this world
from a virgin, we are told.
His mother named him Jesus
his father called him Hope
Strangers called him Salvation
Wise men called him Gold.
Hi father taught him to build with wood
but this guy, Jesus, did what he knew he should
and when he became a man, they say,
God sent him a spirit to light his way.
"A Holy Spirit, I send to thee
so that my children wont be separate from me."
The people thought he was crazy,
they laughed and called him a joke
afterall, 'Who' could be born again?
They hung him on a cross one day
hoping that he would just fade away
but what i tell you now is true
he lives again, and so will you.

JESUS IS BORN



In the middle:
Of the night you came, sweet Jesus for
To bring us light,
Of winter for to bring us warmth,
Of the manger you were born for to
Teach us humility,
Of an impoverished land you grew for to
Distribute your spiritual wealth,
Of the war you marched, for to bring us peace, 
Of occupation yourself found, for to bring us freedom,
Of humanity’s condemnation yourself you placed for 
To lead us into salvation
Of hatred you put yourself, for to instruct us how 
To love!  

We pray to you, divine infant
Our weary hearts to purify
So as worthy we would be 
Your Holy name, to glorify!

A PRAYER IS LIKE A SONG REQUEST

*A PRAYER IS LIKE A SONG REQUEST* 

A prayer is like a song request
You love the melody it brings
Each... note... aligned... along... the... page
Corresponds with a masterpiece
Our prayers are very much the same
In that when we pray them 
They create a most beautiful arrangement before the throne of our King

So I challenge you this day to SING!!!
SING TO JESUS WITH YOUR PRAYERS!!!
SING TO JESUS WITH MUSICAL NOTES THAT ARE ONLY SUNG FROM
YOUR HEART TO HIS!!!

SING!... SING!... SING!...

Waiting

Oh when shall You come, 
To take away the strife, 
Of everyday life, 
Which causes great despair, 
We are awaiting for You to come, 
But it has been so long! 
How long shall we wait! 
Our enemies forsake us! 
We are moaning in sorrow! 
We need our Savior to come back! 
For without Him, 
ALL is lost, 
For without Him, 
there is great despair. 
- Inspired by Psalm 6 

Psalm 6  NIV 
O Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger, 
or discipline me in your wrath. 
Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am faint. 
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are in agony. 
My soul is in anguish. 
How long, O Lord, how long?  
Turn, O Lord, and deliver me; 
save me because of your unfailing love. 
No on can remember you when he is dead. 
Who praises you in the grave?
I am worn out from groaning; 
All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. 
My eyes grow weak with sorrow; 
they fail because of all my foes. 
Away from me, all you who do evil, 
for the Lord has heard my weeping. 
The Lord has heard my cry for mercy; 
the Lord accepts my prayer. 
All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed; 
they will turn back in sudden disgrace.

Altar-Gleam

Oh, Lord, it rends my soul to give
this wish--desire--full away,
Not clinging to a piece of hope;
A piece that says, "Perhaps someday..."

For now the thing--so frightening clear--
Is to release it dark and full
and keep no sliver-thought of me,
Though giving leaves a gaping hole.

Desire--oh, how sharp the spears
of joy that haunt this favorite dream.
But am I Yours enough to push
this treasure toward Your altar's gleam?

The thund'ring toss of straining mind.
The clashing knowledge: this is right.
The heart's own cry: "Oh please, not yet!"
The beckon of Your fire bright.

No looking back, no holding on,
I watch my treasure dance in flame.
And then I feel inside my soul
The power of your tender Name.

I've given what was dearest mine
But just before the wound bleeds free
You staunch the flow and catch my heart
And with Your Lover's arms hold me.

What looks as ash is only just
the dust from which Your plans arise
And though I feel the burning here
I know the mercy in Your eyes.

Alway there

Quickly falling waves crashing against rocks rain falling heavily. Listen. sunlight dim hidden. dark clouds continue to leak. Loud thunder rolls. Lightning in the background. Heart pounding racing clothes soaked dripping. water splashes, still falling. Voice quite. He reaches down and grabs me, he says have faith for I've been here all along. And I love u.

Awaiting God

You have given me my name, and you’re the only one to love me.
 You are my father, better than life and, stronger then iron
 You called me your son and spoke to me your word.
 It is so beautiful; I couldn't, but memorize and write it down. 
Publish it and call it holy.
Yes sir, it’s the bible. Guidance to our reconnection to perfection,
But none can be perfected.
 Imperfectly advertising an answer that's not yet answered,
 But consumed. 
Faith is you, and we praise for answers
 Hidden replies are your solution. So we wait for the night,
Where you take us all away. 
That is why, therefore "in God we wait, and trust".

Truthifiction of the Bible part2

But we arent reading hundreds of journals about the days of old and true acounts 
of jesus
we are reading on narrative book about him
written by a man who thinks he is god
so that tell sme
i can do the same
and maybe i just might
and maybe
just maybe
all several different texts of my book
that turn into churches
instead of going to holy wars you will get along
agree on the lessons you were taught
will be able to date eachother in highschool
and wont be frowned upon if you fall in love

Tell me
are we gullible
or victoms of brainwash
or am i the one that has it all wrong
maybe one day i'll meet someone that has a grandpa
that has an old diary entry from someone
a story he or she was told from her great grandmother
about a rumor in her family tree says
one of her ancestors met jesus

until i read the many written accounts of those that were there
all you worshippers are fools
and i'm better on my own

Can't say i dont believe in jesus preachings
i was never there to hear them
he never wrote them down
 the man who did 
did so
after jesus died
what am i to think
you believe in his resurrection
the truthifiction is right here
i can prove my case further

i rest my case
and think your victoms of a brainwashed cult
and this world just got really scary
but ive known this since iwas small

You Fill My Heart With HOPE

You Fill My Heart With HOPE
I got up this morning,
sun shining through the windows,
I took a look into the mirror,
I could see something in my heart.

You were there to see me wake,
You did see me smile,
So when I do I always feel like,
All my days are worthwhile.

As I went into work today,
kids running up and down the street,
I looked at my plans for tomorrow,
 And praise you Lord for each and every day.

I got in my car to go home today,
Turned on the radio and heard a song,
it reminded of you Lord and Your love for us,
and how wonderful it is that you're here.

As I went to church with my friends today,
I smiled as I wore a brave face,
As all I really want is to live for You Lord,
And to have You in my LIFE.

Lord you fill my hear with Hope and Love.

Because Of You Jesus

Because Of You Jesus


Jesus, you picked us up when we were struggling to get through.
Jesus, you healed our hearts when they were thrown and shattered.
Jesus, you gave us hope when it seemed so far out of reach.
Jesus, you filled us with peace when satin tried to get our lives.
Jesus, you lead us in light when there was nothing but darkness.
Jesus, you gave us comfort when our voices cried out in pain.
Jesus, you reassure us when our doubts scream in our heads.
Jesus, you keep us going when it seems there's no place to go.
Jesus, you sustain us with strength where weakness seems all we knew.
Jesus, you came and stayed when everyone else turned away and left.
Jesus, you give us a purpose when our life seemed so pointless.
Jesus, you restored our happiness when our lives seem to take it away.
Jesus, you filled our emptiness when the void echoed with nothingness.
Jesus, you helped us let it all go when we gripped it the tightest to hold on.
Jesus, you showed us the true beauty of life when the world showed us nothing but hate.
Jesus, you gave us a new life when the old one tried to come back.
Jesus, I am nothing without you, nothing but a lost human.
Jesus, only You could tear down our wall of pride.
Jesus, you build it back with love and humbleness.
Jesus, in all this, we give You our life Lord.
Jesus, we will put all our fears and failures in Your hands,
Jesus, the worries that consume us, the pain that destroys us.
Jesus, You were always there, even when we did not listen to You.
Jesus, in all You are, our life, oh God, is Yours.

Christmas Story

A proclamation was made one day, that each man return to his town of birth for 
audit. So in obedience to God, Mary and Joseph left for their long journey.  
Though she was heavy with child, and ready to deliver any day, still they went as 
directed of God.

The trip was long and arduous, Mary was mournfully in pain.  Joseph did what he 
could to comfort her, but still the journey made her dread each step upon the 
donkey that she rode.

When they had reached their destination and sought a place to stay, they were 
told there was nothing and were continually turned away.  Except for a kind in 
keeper seeing Mary in distress, offered the only thing he had to give, a stable 
where she could to rest.

In the stable Joseph gently laid her, to give her comfort from her long journey.  
Making sure she had a soft place to lay, he warmed her and saw to her needs.  
When the time was near she could hold her cries no longer.  And in that moment 
the heavens opened and a brilliant star came forth.

The cry of a new born filled the air, as Joseph so carefully wrapped him.  Mary 
held her new born son and look joyful with tears.  As she fell asleep with him in 
her arms.

As shepards watched their flocks that night, the star grew brighter still. They 
wondered what could cause such a sight and followed where it lead.

From far across many lands, three kings of orient came, they followed the star to 
where it lead, wanting to know what it would bring.

Upon their arrival to the humble abode where little Jesus lay, they knew in their 
hearts that they were in the presence of the heavenly King of kings.  Gifts they 
brought to leave the child, each with a meaning not yet known.  That night as 
Angels sang in heaven, on earth most did not know. 

But Jesus grew in strength and wisdom and shown of His Fathers love.  He gave 
us all a look at the face of our Father God.  So we celebrate this birth each year, 
not sure of month or day.  We hold it in our heart so dear wanting never that it go 
away.

So hold dear your loved ones and enemies too. For God sent His gift to all.  That 
we as sons and daughters may all experience His Glory and Awe.

I say to all with these words of praise, ‘Merry Christmas’, for Christ was born!  He 
is our greatest gift received from Heaven's Holy Throne.

Merry Christmas and God Bless!

Truthifiction of the bible

The author of the bible must have been god
for Jesus himself never wrote it
and i wonder if Jesus truly existed
then why are we not studying timeless works of art written by the first people
that learned how to read and write?
Another question plagues me
why are there legacies of family traditions of stories in families talked about
handed down from generation from generation
that yes your gret great grandmother was a witch burnt at the stake
or your great great grandfather was a black slave
but why I ask do we never hear those who brag 
through the testimonies of legacies of stories around campfires
that did you know your ancestor touched the hand of christ?
and this story of those days has been in our family for generations?

no one using logic how the world works?
true how quickly we forget
even war veterans pass down terrors of war tortures and terrors of such things
so why did we stop passing down the story of a god?

Is it because the author of the bible was god?
and he knew everthing that happened with jesus and Job
cain and Abel?
or was it just that one day there was a belief
and it was accepted
replaced an old belief
and murdered the old
and we praise it now?

Is this proof we are brainwashed?
gullible even
the fact that the old religion has more stories handed down in generations 
in family 
than this supposed god
who taught us all how to read or write?
I'm sure if i was there to be the first people to learn how to read and write
id write down some stories of the lessons i was taught
tell everyone i knew
of the man i had met who taught me
if the bible is true
and there were that many witnesses

I know id pass it down to my children
and my grandchildren
nieces and nephews

Prophet Owuor

He is a candle in the darkness

He carries the staff of Moses

His words cut to the heart of the people

"Time is up! Prepare for the coming of the Lord!"

His prophecies are spun from the looms of heaven

His feet gather the children of God together

He is the son of the Lion of Judah as he brings healing to the masses

What do you say of this mighty man of Jehovah?

Surely he is likened to the Prophet Elijah as he cries out across the continent of Africa

I say he is the one who will lead the remnant to Jordan

He is truly preparing the way--Prophet David Owuor

Watch as he carries the mantle of Moses

As he helps purify the Bride for her Messiah

Light of the World, 2

In a world of anger, muck,
gloom and grief
a light beams.
It follows the rainbow
of long ago
with promise, with hope.

It comes to us
as of old
not to illume the vile
but to introduce
the answer
to every question.

It comes to us
in naivete, in love
the ultimate sacrifice
calling us back
into the light.

Depression a true story

while contemplating my sickness thought of taking matters into my own hands                  in a jealous drunken stupor I ran raised the sawed-off four-ten double barrel smacking my self in the head but before the moment of impact I saw a great light                                   in anger threw the gun as far as I could into the weeds of a potter's field                             for I was running between the main graveyard                                                                  the hours afterward are kind of black from drugs and drink                                               the next morning I think I called my uncle to take the rattle snake                                      I am not my own by the grace of the Lord Jesus I can tell                                               you this tell because of my sins running bound for hell                                                       but God said let it turn and I did but you see it took Him                                                   to turn me around with revelation from the great physician                                                like a tongue depressor your not depressed but being oppressed                                        by my own sins and a relentless enemy unseen                                                                I don't even like to or want to remember his name satan                                           notice that name is not capitalized nor will I                                                                      but whom the Son sets free is free indeed                                                                      in that day you will know the Truth today if you will hear                                              now with freely given love joy and righteousness                                                              I wait for the day of no more remembrance of the enemies name

Holy Roadmap

Our pastor gave us this message, today in his Sunday sermon,
we must use the Holy Roadmap if we would not lose our way.
When Jesus visited their home, hospitality was Martha’s aim.
She proudly set a fine table, while Mary sat humbly bathing his feet.
When Martha complained to Jesus, he didn’t scold nor did he chide,
but very gently informed her, she had lost her sense of direction.
When God came to Earth as Jesus, he didn’t have much time to stay.
Mary’s humility pleased him, along with her intense interest in his every word.
Her sister needed to join her, to listen and become his messenger.
We serve our Lord in our own ways but what pleases him the most
is how often we read his Word and relay it to others..
We should all be more like Mary, listening and learning.
We must search our Holy Bible for what Jesus came to teach.
In the Bible is the roadmap that will show the way.
If we follow its directions we will find it a guide..

Ignorance is Bliss

 
Ignorance is Bliss 

Ignorance is Bliss 

When GOD destroyed the town of NINEVA Jonah danced and grinned an evil 
smile. He party and he drank and he ate squab and many other birds an evil 
meat he danced among the naked thralls oh wait this never happened gentile 
reader let me tell you the real story was this wise. Jonah was an angry man he 
waited on the hill so happy was the man for the GOURD vine had got between 
him and the sun the shade was so very nice and then an evil wind came up so 
hot and burning him the vine withered like a worm had come and smote the 
vegetable matter it was made of. He got hot and it made him mad and then the 
wonder of it all as he gazed down upon the town at people in the cattle stalls just 
going around about the businesses at hand. JONAH why are you mad there is 
more than TWENTY THOUSAND people in the city of this land. No one of them 
knows his right hand from his left they are just ignorant. Why would you have me 
destroy them? Jonah stubbed his toe in his excitement. Eye knew that you OH 
GOD would be like that. The city is spared why then did you have me Preach 
against it. The answer lies insided in the minds of all my readers. Because that I 
am GOD and because that I am Care and just to make them all aware of 
trespasses and of sins to make them all get better and to live. When you were in 
the belly of the whale and given up for dead the sign was given then for JESUS 
my only SON to come and save all of the men who listen now to me and turn to 
him and still they will repent and turn from all the sin as this NINEVAH has done. 
Just listen and say Jesus is the LORD. Ignorance is soon forgiven more than evil 
knowledges and hardnesses of hearts. 
 
           
 
 
 Ignorance is Bliss

who knows

Get down on your knees and ask Jesus to come in.
Then and only then will you have no fear of the end.
so you believed that the 21st was it, did you hold that dear.
There are no excuses for your foolish thoughts, 
Time that will end is a revelation written The Book of books.
It  tells you that with Jesus in your comer you will have no fears.
A life that will never end and you will not shed any tears.
Everybody wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die.
What comes tomorrow no one knows.
Faith unseen is how it goes.
Heaven or hell which wills it be?
No one knows when the end will come.
That is why God gave us His only begotten Son.
what your excuses now that you know, faith unseen is how it goes.

Observations 4 Childhood Retrospect

I always had questions
Not many people had answers
I was never moved by childish banter
Yeah I'm the kid that debunked Santa
Rudolph, Dancer and their magical antlers
I've seen the corruption in churches
& weakness in blind faith
I'm taking religion to court
I know I got a case
I lied to the minister, after being dipped in the water
And just wanted to go to church to see various members daughters
I knew right from wrong before I knew Jesus
Then they say that's what he's trying to teach us
Well I was doing just fine, plus made straight A's
Cool as the Fonz in my happy days
But life is more like a re-run & that's not what's happening

Ending of the Circles

Lack of anarchy 
This generation knows none
It has lost all beliefs of the mothers and fathers before
These times are a godless time
That the scoundrels pray by and dance to with flames
Murderers are given empathy and the sick...  to many antidotes


I stood above the altar waiting for a cleric
But was ashamed of the men who held a cross and kiss to one another
Children dying for the touch of an adult yet their games are still adolescent
Blood spilled for the sole purpose of drinking in already a vein drought
I cried for the times to end but the seconds grew patient and the minutes live

Statues built in tyranny and now every country begs for violence and respect 
Lust at the tip of the educators wand 
Fear is just a name that history has failed to remember
Witchcraft at the culmination of a holiday which we celebrate loudly and drunken

May God pity this land
Our hands use to ache with hard labor 
Now they snatch ignorance at the kneck 
Virtues grappling at a whim while the holiness has been abandoned like a ship
Drifting away at a destitute harbour

my saviour

Life has its own
challenges
But in the midst of
all that
Somehow I still have
the strength to move
on
Not because I am
strong enough
But it’s who that is
in me that
strengthens me.

So I keep pressing
on, I continue
holding on,
My hope is still
high I won’t let go,
For when am almost
in desperation,
My savior
rejuvenates me.

your grace, a norm for justice.
Thank you for sending your Son,
evil’s Nemesis, Jesus!

Father, ordained at your hand,
He offers us life
by dying on Calvary.
There is no one like your Son.
He's always available to help,
your Offering, Jesus!

Father, omnipotent over all things
one Lord, our example,  
occupied with obedience,
Overlord of the universe, 
Thank you for Jesus!

Amen

Remember the brush arbor days

Far from the twisted Church and state                                                                          you probably did not know that there were state Churches                                             for you needed not to know because you did not even want to look at your sinful life         or the capital building doubled as a Church and prayers are said before congress           America should remember the brush arbor days                                                               when there were no buildings in place to be hidden away in some denomination                and before false precedents where made                                                                       Oh America we need Him again                                                                                    He who needs nothing and gave everything                                                                       again build an arbor in the cleared woods                                                                        All gather in the open air a wilting shelter of trees and brush                                             Before there was a Church bell to ring they would                                                           just to gather in His Glorious Name was enough                                                             Oh America we need Him again                                                                                    He who needs nothing and gave everything                                                                     It is bad enough we have a world against us                                                                   Unity Equality Liberty where the Spirit is breathing                                                        Why strife among yourselves it is not of the truss                                                            A body not of this building to say where you came from                                                  He did not die just for some and where you are going today                                              I hope we gather in the sun one nation under the Son                                                   remember the brush arbor days and Jesus the only way                                                 Oh America we need Him again                                                                                    He who needs nothing and gave everything

Mary sits alone and cries

Mary sits alone and cries
At a table, empty and wide.
Remembers a time, laughter and talk.
Were the things to make her spirit sing.

Remembers those things we will never know,
The first smile, the first kiss
The word of love, so long ago
The precious son she held so close.

Now she sits and cries,
And often asks the reason why,
Why did you give, him then take him away
For a world full of sin and woe.

But as she walks to a sad dark tomb 
She meets an angel who said “do not fear”,
He’s no longer there. He is alive 

Now there’s rejoicing in her heart,
Now she knows the reason why,
Jesus died to set them free,
And gave his spirit eternally.

not just simple

It's not simple when people argue 
It's not simple when people hate
It's not simple when people cheat

But it's simple with GOD
It's simple when you praise him
It's simple when you love
It's simple when you don't cheat
It's simple when you keep JESUS happy

So why can't you
Why can't you be happy 
Why can't you stay prasing JESUS
Why can't you stop all this anger
Why,Why,Why,Why

Why not stop this
You'll live longer and you know it

the only answer now is......


SIMPLE LOVE BETWEEN EACH OTHER!!!

So smile JESUS loves you. :)

Will guide me in his will

Christianity

Ask not, 
And you 
Shall indeed
Receive. 

Believe in 
the Son of 
All things known
and Unknown. 

Or Not. 

He knows you 
And me. 

And regardless, 
disbelief is the 
Same as belief. 

When transcendence is
At stake. 

And you and I 
marry to the clouds 
In an eternal treaty.

Fields of Corn

We were walking through fields of corn as he carried me upon his shoulders. 

Spinning in circles in the greatest delight.

He was my heavenly Father and he was shouldering all my burdens for me.

The wind blew my soft hair and the sun kissed my golden cheeks.

Rows and rows of corn were there, then we separated and played hide-n-seek.

His heart beat faster the closer he got to finding me.

It was a day I'll never forget.

Hide-n-seek with my heavenly Father.

No other day holds a candle to it.

Savoring it in my heart always.

The Star

The Star
Bright is the morning
But night's for the star.
Light in the dark,
Hope for the lost.

The morning mysterious star,
Brightest of the midnight stars,
The duet' et machina of life
That knows and sees all.

The loud voice from distance,
The one that banks with fish,
Sea walker and master
Whose robe and WORD saves
Hmm! The bright morning star,
That within and afar lives.
The unimaginable light!
Indeed you light the way.

If We Could Talk to the Animals

What if you could talk to the animals?
Would they tell you some new insights?
Would they tell you that they have been holding out on us humans for decades?
Perhaps since the beginning of time?
What if they knew secrets about the universe but they had to keep it under lock and key?
What if they were actually the superior ones and we were the ones out of place?
Now there is something to contemplate!
Nah! I don’t believe that to be true, but I do believe that if they could talk they would
I believe they would tell us about world peace and living in harmony just like they do
It wasn’t Noah that called them all to the ark
It was the Spirit of God and that is who they listen to
They take cues from mankind, this is true
But when it comes to the big stuff
They get their orders directly from the Creator himself
So the next time you think you are in charge of an animal
The next time you think you are the one leading them
Reconsider this bogus thought and remember who orders their footsteps
It is Yaweh
He is the One

ValentinesDay

 ValentinesDay 
ValentinesDay 

 
 
A Massacre 
 
 
 
CharlaXFabels 
 
FortyEighth 
 Valentines Saint Massacre Day was in Chicago the man played them a tune on 
his fiddle. The Aftermath The newspapers instantly picked up on the crime, 
dubbing it the "St. Valentine's Day Massacre." The story appeared on front pages 
around the country, making Capone a nationwide celebrity. While Capone 
seemed to revel in his new fame, he also had to deal with the new level of 
attention from federal law enforcement officials. Capone is sitting by his 
swimming pool catching his non existent fish and he begins to reminisce this is 
Capone speaking now "The boys missed MORAN it was a terrible thing" The 
spaghetti was gotten cold and now the fish that eye find will have to do to feed the 
diseases in my mind eye the Capone knoe that now eye am just dying of all the 
real good times. Alphonse "Al" Capone was one of the most famous U.S. 
gangsters during the 1930s, a Chicago-based boss involved in illegal gambling, 
bootlegging (illegal alcohol) and prostitution. Capone got his start in New York, 
working as a thug and bouncer (where he got the three scars that spawned his 
nickname, "Scarface").Al Capone spent the last year of his Alcatraz sentence, 
which had been reduced to six years and five months for a combination of good 
behavior and work credits, in the hospital section being treated for syphilis. He 
was released in November of 1939 and taken to a hospital in Baltimore where 
he was treated until March of 1940. For his remaining years, Capone slowly 
deteriorated while staying at his Palm Island estate in Miami. On January 25, 
1947, he died of cardiac arrest. Eye saw a stranger carry love in his right hand 
today he carried his love in his hand a bunch of flowers in a wrapper for a vase 
and eye thought of Al Capone disgraced. Eye can still remember the movie how 
he bit the punk's ear in Jail to make him think that he got sick too. The only thing 
worse than that is to lay in a blanket that has been stolen many times. On 
another of his movies the floozie was in bed asking him if he liked it too of course 
they was talking about manicures. He made the Chicken if he made creation 
was it the full blown bird or just the egg it would make no difference to that 
Chicken only to the education evolution. A small reference to the Jesus how can 
anyone still please him. There is a marker on ALS grave My Jesus Mercy.

The Super Moon

**The Super Moon**

Did you see the full moon tonight?
It was bright and all aglow with a warm encasement
It looked like a magical bull’s eye and X marks the spot where it sat there all alone
It is a marvelous thing to ponder…What is the mystery of the Super Moons?
The super moons are experiences when the moon is full and closest to the earth
It is also a wonderment of the heavens for whenever you see three of them in a row
There is a sign that the heavens are trying to display
What is the sign for this super moon trio?
Could it be that the earth is ready to receive its King?
Could it be one for the Holy Spirit, one for Jesus, and one for Jehovah God?
Great things come in threes!
I say the super moons indicate something spectacular is about to take place in the heavens
A marvel for the entire world to see
Perhaps it is to introduce the Messiah coming to usher His Bride away?
It is a strong possibility from my last conversation with my King
Many say that those who “hear voices” are insane
Or maybe they need to go to a loony ben
I say that when I heard my Savior’s voice this evening he said “I AM ON MY WAY!”
HE SAID THAT THIS IS A SIGN TO THE WORLD THAT I AM COMING IN THE SKIES
IT IS ALSO A SIGN THAT THE JEWISH CALENDER IS RIGHT ON TIME 
You see we that can hear the voice of our Shepherd KNOW things
Yes, we KNOW things because we sit at our Shepherd’s feet
You should try it sometime and see what you glean
So take it from someone who hears voices and from someone who is completely sane
The Groom also known as Jesus Christ is about to rapture his Bride!

JC Current

I just want to say, God is real.
Whether you believe in Him, or the power to heal,
I know for myself, that before I was created in the womb,
He died for us, you and I and rose from that tomb.

Whether you believe in Him now, in the future or never,
We will all have to stand before the Father, 
And give an account, which determines our destination,
On Earth, you decide your eternal situation.

So, basically, without JC in your life,
Whether you never lie, steal or kill with a knife,
You’re going to hell, forever and ever, long time right?

I’m not trying to scare you,
But it’s my mission to tell you,
The Truth, as my brother or sister, does that sound right?

All young people seem to want to do these days is have fun,
All the time, and not have to think about the consequences, that come upon them,
To waste on raves,
And other pointless masquerades,
To waste on drinking, 
Without thinking,
The time’s ticking,
On the clock of your life,
And God is picking,
Where you are to go,
The lights are flicking,
As your energy supply runs low,
But if you plug into Him,
Your energy will overflow,
And your energy source, 
Would be reinforced by the Almighty God.

So today, you choose,
Whether you renew your fuse,
And use it,
Don’t let your light bulb run dim,
But be a light and shine for Him.

Metaphored America (Spoken Word)

-Vicious lies continuously make love to the mischievous tongs, as the politicians sentences 
are sung

-Teach the children not to join gangs or a pack, when you represent the right wing red flag 
and she’s an O.G. democrat

-As Adam married Sadam Jesus had questions in went to see them, and Eve tells Jesus to 
mind his own because God gave us freedom

-Its all to confusing so I search for answers in the church

-Where im scolded because I don’t agree with a decision in the preacher mans religion

-Bullsh*it is cleverly delivered from selected alters and pulpits
Maybe that’s why so many different fundamentalist are so full of it

-And the list goes on

Discovering you

Who are you? I question
myself time and again. Is it me
I question or you?
Where are you, in me, in heaven, everywhere
I search for you, as nowhere
you reside.
Discovering you is taking time. Patiently
I must follow. Somehow you already
assure me that you are
with me forever more.

Time

We go through this world
Feeling like we have enough time,
Like the earth revolves around us,
We don’t realize that with
Every minuet that passes,
Is another minuet that we
Can never get back,
So whether you eat or drink
Or whatever you do,
Do it all for the glory of God

I Think Jesus

I Think Jesus


I think Jesus knows I’m nuts
so why would he arraign me 
in front of all those saints on high 

so sane they’ll never see me 
skipping down the road  at dawn
and not a soul behind me. 

Funnel clouds may tear through hell 
but not the ones inside me. 
They come and go all on their own 

as if  they can’t abide me. 
Today they’re off to New Orleans
so batten down the hatches.

When they return they’ll churn again
whirligigs inside me. 
Yet every day when I get up

I know this much for certain: 
I think Jesus knows I’m nuts
so why would he arraign me?

who Knows

For all the people that thought the end was near.
Get down on your knees and ask Jesus to come in.
Then and only then will you have no fear of the end.
so you believed that the 21st was it, did you hold that dear.
There are no excuses for your foolish thoughts, 
Time that will end is a revelation written The Book of books.
It  tells you that with Jesus in your comer you will have no fears.
A life that will never end and you will not shed any tears.
Everybody wants to go to heaven but no one wants to die.
What comes tomorrow no one knows.
Faith unseen is how it goes.
Heaven or hell which wills it be?
No one knows when the end will come.
That is why God gave us His only begotten Son.

We Needed you and You were there

We Needed you and You were there 
 
We cried the tears You wipe them away 

We were confused and You cleared our hearts

We were afraid and You came right back for us

And held us up and gave us strength 
 
And showed us how You love us
 
You gave us strength to stand against evil

To face the world  in our LIFE with You

You put us up in the light from the dark

So high that we could almost see eternity

You showed us why we need You 
 
We can not believe it's really You

We can not believe it's really true

We needed you  and you were always there
We will never leave You Lord

Because we finally found the One who really cares

You help us  when were wary

When we are lost  You protect us 

You gave us hope  when we were at the end

You turned our lives  back into truth again

You even call us brother and sister

We needed You and You were there  
Thank you Lord for being there
We are now there for You 
AMEN!!

Come Let Your Heart Shine

Keep Your Light shining bright
Always walk in Love of Christ
Reach out in touch a heart
Comfort them.. is the start

When someone does you wrong
Remember whom you belong
You are a Christ Follower
Sow your seeds..  let your light shine
Do it all for Christ our divine

When someone comes to you
God has His reasons
For you two to meet
 
Don’t turn them away
Don’t turn you back on them
Instead do what Jesus would do
Walk always in Love and Truth unto them

As in hopes they would to you
Let your Heart shine
Always look to the good
What do you see
When you look at me?

What I see
When I look at you?
I see a Beautiful Precious Soul
One God has made Unique
Treasureous Heart...

~Come to Jesus~

Ultimate Love

We judged him
Still he loved us
We spate and slapped him
But he forgave us and never 
Deserted us

We teased and cursed at him
But he humbled himself
And helped use stand on
Our feet.

We crucified him 
But he still loved us 
also forgave that sinned 
and Wiped out our guilt.

He payed our debt

The one man who 
payed the price for us all,
is named Jesus Christ,
the son of God.
None of us deserved it,
none of us still do,
but Jesus payed the debt
so we wouldn't have to.
Be thankful for what he did 
on the cross.
He didn't have to and we would all be lost.
But he did and 
that's all that matters,
he lost his life for all the sinners

You lead me on.
I will do your will

Pangs

Oh what sorrows and woes I bare,
no sight beyond, no thoughts, no cares.

The starlight shines in wondrous ways,
though my eyes are dim, and this life's a maze.

Still I seek what can't be found, with all I am,
I reach and struggle, dig and pull,
with endless effort and will...
But then ask I why?

Why do I feel the way I do and what's the reason...
What’s the reason for all my struggles?
Where do I turn for answers and who cares?

This endless journey wears me thin...
Is this my punishment for some terrible past sin?

Oh woe is me, yes woe is me...should I look to a mountain?
Where comes my help from?

I weep, yes I weep...

Who loves me and who is my friend?
Yet echoes of past the sounds I hear...

Jesus loves me this I know,
And what a friend is he...

Hardcore satanists

world wars your mongering for
the big satanic bloodbath
more appealing to god
then two homosexual men
The devil may cry
my favorite angel facing a feat of unequal measure
since you know soo much about him
live it everyday
you never let him live this down
just work on making yourselves miserable
you look soo happy that way
words you read by the best
your own walking contradiction
so caught up in getting what you want at anycost
you forgot what he wanted
and there is a price to pay
signed yourself up for a fight that isnt yours
the rules you live by
they are enforced
you cant scramble away from this fast enough
the lie you live for power
lesser of two evils presented to you
path of least resistance corners you again
sing yourself to suicide ever soo sweetly
the shortest straw has no alibi
and i think its funny
Jesus has some truth to tell him
slip the witch a missing letter
she doesnt mind bringin him back to life
even the devil you know
splattered all over your pages
the philosophy you seem to live everyday
offered you a short term power
and we just throw you away
came to get my favorite angel
something youve been denying yourself the whole time
trivial pursuit of endless lies manipulating yourselves this way is such a shame
now i'm not obligated to help you
you had a choice
the game of life you signed up for is coming round again
faster than you think
your underground rivalry of seeking after power
i paid the devil to see if you would make this mistake
then you did and i agreed he could do the dirty work in jesus name
the truth will get you in karmic laws you forgot about
threefolds of being humbled
and humbled and humbled again
wont even help you, you cant get away
hardcore satanists dressed up as saints messing up their own destiny
did the world not tell you
life is a test?
you were tested
you failed
the devil was in on it
enjoy your bloodbaths of endless wars in hell
the world kept this under rug swept
and now for you there is no way out
paid the devil for me
and jesus will eventualy set him free from the you he doesnt want
your not fathoming this properly
jesus was tortured so you wouldnt be
the letter gone missing
now whose got a face to blame
hardcore satanists
my favorite angel loves me
he wouldnt allow me to live this nightmare
so hes taking you far far away

Luk 22:44
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground 
1Ki 7:18 And he made the pillars, and two rows round about upon the one network, to cover the chapiters that were upon the top, with pomegranates: and so did he for the other chapiter. 1Ki 7:22 And upon the top of the pillars was lily work: so was the work of the pillars finished.

HERE FOR YOU

Night falls as the shadows play..
The earth quakes buildings tumble n break..
The spirit of JESUS is upon the people lifting them high above...
Destroyed by nature rebuild by faith..
Non Christians believing some deceiving but they live through to see the miracle of GOD...
Going days under the rubble having faith would take away their troubles...
We are here as a helping hand to reach out for that distant man...
You will live on through your people...
Haiti will live on through the miracles...
We pray for you Haiti that you will see the light
Let JESUS be your morning and night...
Stand strong you will pull through because Haiti JESUS is here for you.

Standing On The Corner

Standing on the corner,
All alone,
Church across the street,
Devastation surrounds,
Tears flow from years of emotional starvation,
Losing it all,
Can't take it anymore.
Throw up your hands,
They shout,
"I Need A Miracle!"

Questions

How many drops of blood did Jesus shed,
when they brutally placed Him on the cross? ---
Was the pain that He suffered more then 
Mary's at His birth? ---
Or was it equal to Her spiritual pain when 
She witnessed His death? ---
Can anyone measure the remorse Jesus 
had felt in the garden? ---
Or the isolation upon the cross 
when GOD forsook Him? ---
The answers are known only by three ---
And these three are truly one.

Thy Will Be Done

I ask for nothing
But praise You for the multitude of Graces 
That You have bestowed upon me
I lack for nothing
For I am saved in Your Divine Gift of Salvation

Just in knowing Your Great Suffering for me
Of your intricate detail as you placed me in the womb
A Love so great no servant could ever even begin to fathom
And in knowing this through such Grace to be true
I see not the need nor the reason to complain

But I do
And I do it often and I do it loud
And every time I say I won't 
I do
And then I see You standing by my side

How many times must I again fall
Till Thy heart completely cradles my own
My house having so few windows left
My path so crooked at times
And yet You love me

Judgment Day

In life we all have our moments
I wonder what will be our punishment
when we’re confronted on Judgment Day
Will we all stand with shame for there
will be no one else to blame.

Sons of men may complain but we 
already acclaimed What we’ll obtain
We chose murder, adultery, sexual 
immorality, theft, lying,Gold and fame 
to be the course of our life’s game. The
question is what will God proclaim heaven
or the flame as our final resting place.

Michael the Archangel

~~Michael the Archangel~~

One of the mightiest of Seraphim—It’s him!

Michael the Archangel	

His eyes of flaming fire and words like rockets being shot from a launching pad

If you’ve ever met my brother Michael you would learn one thing about angels

They don’t play games and they do everything according to the word of God

When they love they love with ALL their heart

When they war in the heavenlies they hold NOTHING back

Six mighty powerful wings with tips as sharp as razors

Six shiny heavenly wings that lift him like an eagle

He is my brother and he is a mighty warrior

If you are in the Army of the Lord you will get to stand with him in battle

That’s Michael! In a nutshell he is one extraordinary archangel

Just don’t tell Gabriel this because they have a little sibling rivalry going on

(in a good way)!

Make Me into Something Better


Make Me into Something Better
By Karen Fitzpatrick

Lord you’re so understanding, faithful and sure
Make me into something better
You know my thoughts
You hear my cries
My heart desirers to know you
To be more like you

Lord help me to trust you
To hold on to your strength
Lord see me through the bad times
And whatever suffering may come my way
To know that your strength is enough
To see me through wholeheartedly

Lord guide me and give me wisdom
As I walk this earth
Lord help me to become a reflection of you
And your kindness
Help me to know I’m not alone
Your presence is always with me

Lord my God 
Lead me on the path to you
Merciful God
Show me a love much deeper
Than I thought I could ever know
Make me into something better

The Anointed one

A messiah was to come
Foretold by the prophets
Many will deny him But
some will admire him

Christ the anointed one
His death was plotted
Jesus Christ’s murder
Was authorized. A Holy
messiah was titled A total
fraud.

The Lamb of God was never
welcomed when he came to 
deliver his father’s message
For forgiveness he came his
Holy Angels will be his witness 
On behave of God he give rest
to the broken Spirit yet men
still crucified him with the rest 
in the hope of finding another God


Behold
Truth will soon unfold
A righteous man will
Return.We will stand 
before him the most
high to be Judged for 
our sins.

From Darkness into Light

A dark and evil creature
Pursued a man today.
He tried to run,
He tried to hide, 
But the darkness followed him.

He ran down the street,
And around the corner.
He ran up the stairs
And through the door,
Yet the darkness followed still

He shut his doors,
Turned on his lights,
And tried to find some peace;
But even in his lighted house,
The darkness still was there.

“Oh, foul creature,
What can you be,
And why do you pursue?”
For a moment, silence reigned,
Then the darkness answered him.

“I am your sin,
Your dirty deeds,
The things you try to hide.
Your sin cursed soul, is what I am,
The darkness within you.

There’s a price to be paid
For this lack of light.
Eternal fire, torment, and pain
Is the price that you must pay
For this darkness inside you.”

“Oh woe is me!”
The man then cried.
“Your price is much too high!
Is there no other way to pay?”
But the darkness in silence remained.

A knock at his door
Pierced his despair,
And he trudged to it to answer.
There stood a man with a smiling face
For no darkness followed him.

The stranger at the door said,
“I can see,
That you are in despair.
What troubles you?” and the man replied,
“That darkness over there.

He says, I’m doomed,
To eternal fire,
And doomed to eternal pain.
Do you know a way for me to escape
That darkness over there?”

“A man named Jesus,”
The stranger replied,
“The Son of God once came.
He shed His perfect, precious blood,
That darkness to send away.

The price for sin
Was paid in full when
He died and rose again.
His sinless blood can wash away
That darkness deep within.

This gift of love
Is free for all,
It gives eternal life.
Beautiful Heaven can be your home,
A place that darkness cannot go.”

“What must I do?”
The man then asked,
“So this gift I can receive?”
“Call unto God, acknowledge your sin,
Your darkness then confess,

And accept His gift 
Of eternal life,
Eternal death forsake.
His blood will cover all your sins,
And the darkness then will fade” 

“Oh, God,” the man prayed,
“I accept your gift,
Please wash away my sins.
Come into my heart and lead me today,
From darkness into light.

I HAD NO PLACE TO REST MY HEAD PART 3

Wasn't this supposed to be one of the happiest days for me?
Why did this happen on this very day?
Was I being punished for something I did or some type of display?

All of these questions entered my mind,
as I lay my heart broken and on the line.

I was hurt to know she would never be there, 
she would never see the sunshine in my son's hair.

She would never see him smile his first smile, 
never would she play with him for a little while.

She would never kiss his face, 
...nor would she share her warm embrace.

As I sat there remembering this pain I was feeling
I had to ask Our Father for his healing.

I sat there on the couch, changing the channel 
when I saw Paul and Jan Crouch. (Evangelists)

I watched in wonder I couldn't believe my eyes,
they praised with their voices,
lifting their hands to the sky.

Their strength how it amazed me,
their smiles filled with grace,

I asked myself many questions like what was the race?

I listened and learned the message they spread, 
it was all about Jesus and what he had said.

Their voices uplifting yet gentle and calm, 
made me realize that I too belong.

I remained on the network, which is TBN,
to praise Our Father along with my friends.

I watched other's on satellite listening to 
pastor's and following Our Lords flight.

After this year of reading and learning God's Word 
I thought I was crazy when I up and heard, 

"You need more for your life so listen to me, 
if you focus and pray I am the Key."

God turned me around in a spin, in a whirl, 
I asked him to change my life to a pearl.

I knew at that moment that I was at peace, 
for my life had been given to Christ Jesus the High Priest!

I don't know where I am going, 
I don't know where I will be, 
but my life is full of joy for he is showing me.

Paul and Jan Crouch continue to thrive, 
giving God's message to people across the sky.

It never goes unnoticed, 
it never goes unseen, 
for God sees ALL and he loves what he sees..........

A Fish and the Ten Percent's Brain Mystery

 A Fish and the Ten Percent’s Brain Mystery

I had deep thoughts on man.

Is he God’s masterpiece or a fiasco?
I determined, man is God’s failed handiwork.

The reason being, although God gave man a specially designed brain 
that is way superior from all other creatures, man’s uniquely 
designed brain is not any better than a mannequin’s brain 
attired with the latest fashion dress watching passersby from 
inside a show window. The mannequin’s brain is not for practical use
but solely for display.

In the ten percent’s brain mystery,
it is a waste for man not utilizing 
ninety percent of the remaining brain. More than a waste,
it is poison because man dips ten percent of his brain 
in and out of polluted water ideates nothing but evil.

There was Eden in the beginning of the world, 
and in the middle of the garden there was a tree 
that will bear God forbidden fruits though it unnecessarily 
stands there just like a man’s brain. Man ate fruit anyway—although 
the serpent told man’s companion to eat because he will take responsibility, 
and became the way we are now. Even if man did not eat, it will not make  
a difference in human nature.

Why?
If man fills remaining ninety percent of space 
with thinking processing media and wholly utilizes it,
man will become god crossing over the God’s inviolable domain.

And that’s why, to humankind,  
there is a story about a pathetic fish* 
which abandoned water to reach the dry land.
The fish labors on land breathing with its dried up gills, 
suffers under mistreatment and all kinds of mockeries men make. 

The story sad and grim continues, 
the fish, in order to reinstall the good relationship between God 
and His creature, he was put on a spit through a bone torn off from 
his own flesh stood on the mound of death, the body dried 
under the scorching sun, twisting in the boiling air.

How could we survive in this trying world
without this story so sad; yet exceedingly beautifully 
fabricated with only ten percent of the brain, man’s mystery.

That’s why, 
because the fish with no dazzling color would infatuate 
onlookers eyes or is streamlined that enables swift maneuver 
in the water, man became not failure but God’s masterpiece. 



*????s:  ??s??s;  ???st?s;  Te?s;  ???s;  S?t???a 
????s is Greek word for Fish and when undo the letters and place in the row with new word begins with each letter it becomes: Jesus, Christ, God, Son, and Salvation. That’s why Fish symbolizes Jesus Christ, as well as basis for the profession of Christian faith.

DEAR JESUS, YOUR MAJESTY REIGNS SUPREME

Your Light the only one that truly breaks the darkness
Nothing mortal could ever shine so bright or for so long
Eternally I will always be devoted to You my sweet Lord
Your Love never to be surpassed and surely guaranteed to last

Your praises will always be sung by me without question
For there is no other road that can lead me to salvation
My spirit someday will fly freely to You without reservation
Finally to rest forever in peace at Your glorious station

I love You Jesus

Judges and Mockers -- Part2

I wonder:
If we believe that Jesus Christ is the only BEGOTTEN Son of God,
Do we get a free ride into heaven?
Yes and No!

Yes, because Jesus overcame the grave and was resurrected, 
We all will likewise be resurrected.
We have been saved from eternal demise…because of Jesus.
…And perfection!
And NO because if we fail to forgive, we will not be forgiven…so Jesus said!

I ask, then, will we obtain exaltation if we disapprove of another and condemn him?
(We MUST leave that responsibility to God who can read the heart?)
Can we censure, disparage, denounce, rebuke, defile, slam, attack, find fault, knock, 
reproach, scorn, or criticize and still be held blameless during our own judgment?
Is it enough to say, “I am sorry, please forgive me”?  Then, dismiss our human 
weakness?
Or must we teach ourselves to STOP!
If we ridicule, tease, and make fun of another, 
Do we deny ourselves of higher spirituality?  
I say, “Yes!”

Understanding, compassion, and pure love diminish.
If we judge others, we will be judged likewise.  
If we forgive others, we will be forgiven likewise.
Jesus said, “Yes!”  

Forgiveness teaches love, tolerance, and understanding.
Blaming teaches hatred, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.

The choice is ours to make.
Will we spend our hearts and souls making fun of another for personal amusement?
Or might we, instead, look inside the hearts of another with Christ-like wisdom?
Life is a learning process; love takes practice.

Good luck to all who seek righteousness and exaltation.
For eternal life is more than a game of wits.
It is a competition between righteousness and wickedness.
The choice is ours and it is free!
What choose you, this day?

God help us all!

I'm Looking for Christmas

I'm looking for Christmas
a Christmas of long, long ago.
with spruce, lights and tinsel
and sled runners sliding on snow.

I'm looking for Christmas, 
a long ago Christmas 
of popcorn and candy, 
and surrounded by family
singing carols we all know.

I'm looking for Christmas, 
a thrown away Christmas
replaced and discarded 
by those who regarded
Christians as set below
 those who speak Xmas
and those who pray Allah
and those who pray just for show.

Bring angels, and shepherds,
and wise men who search for a king.
Bring me music, bring me Jesus;
bring me believers worshiping,
bring me love, bring me Christmas.
I'm looking for Christmas.

Righteousness Justification

 Righteousness Justification 
Righteousness Justification 
 
 
But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to 
which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes 
through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have 
sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace 
through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 
What the law had not done in the manner of the law to save Jesus has filled it all 
so brave HE has won for me the thing there is now no more that eye can do but 
to trust the GOD. One Law that eye have broken matters not the rest of them not 
kept the thing is done a sinless creature wept the SON of GOD. Upon the ROCK 
in the garden of Gethsemane he prayed for the sinfull likes of me and thee he 
died and kept the law. He and HE alone and HE is GOD. We can say Jesus we 
can go home.

I am not alone

Feeling alone
No flesh on the bone
Heavy as a stone
Vulnerable
Numb
No wind in the sails
Not even a breeze.

Yet I am not alone
Lying emotions try to take control
Of a vulnerable rudder
Trying to steer to a sea of darkness
But I steer to Jesus who is bright
Reassuring commitment to me as I float
I am not alone.





Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, 
and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. (John 16:32

It's Judgement Day

The day is coming,
when The Lord will come back with a mighty vengeance!

You better make every wrong right!
You better get your house in order! The very first step is repentance!

It doesn't matter who you are!
It doesn't matter what you have done! Jesus shed His Blood for you and I!

Accept Him NOW! Turn from your evil ways!
And when He comes back, He will lift you on high!

Unfortunatly, there will be many souls who won't listen to the truth,
and they will be left here to face the seven year tribulation!

For those who accept Him, I say PRAISE THE LORD!
For those who do not, I say FATHER PLEASE HAVE MERCY UPON THEM!

For it is written;

EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW,
AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL CONFESS,
THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE LORD!

There won't be anywhere to escape!
Hurry up, seek HIM NOW!
People, 
IT'S ALMOST JUDGEMENT DAY!

Jesus Wasn't There

When we now looked upon the roman cross,
Jesus wasn't there.
Nor when we entered the tomb,
not even a single strand of His hair.
Two men in white said why seek the 
living among the dead?
The one you call Jesus is alive,
tell His followers what we have said.
The linen, oils and spices were 
discarded and left behind.
We went to His disciples, but they thought
we were out of our mind.
So we went back to the tomb with John
and Peter this time.
Maybe they could help us solve
this terrible crime.
After seeing that the tomb was was empty
and Jesus body had been taken away.
The others went back, while I
remained to silently pray.
A stranger appeared asking me,
why do I mourn and cry?
So I questioned him if he knew who
took Jesus body and why.
Suddenly I saw a man and asked him
if Jesus body was near.
All He did was sweetly smile at me
and say ever so clear...Mary.

Making Way for the King

**Making Way for the King**

I had a dream last night
It was a very realistic dream
I was dressed in the most stunning armor and I was on a mission
My mission was to announce the way for the coming of the King
He wasn’t just any old king either
He was the King of Glory
I didn’t look my normal self either
I looked like a Cinderella and we were heading for a grand ball
He was the guest of honor and I carried him on my arm
What a sight to behold this King in all his majesty
In a million years I could not ponder why he chose me
There he was as he stood there in the most dazzling white robe
Eyes of sapphire and a heart of crimson gold
Such a sight to behold
I walked him down the aisle and presented him to the world
I said with the most delightful voice, “There he is!”
“There is the Messiah to the world.” 
They will embrace him now
They will not turn a cold shoulder
This King of Glory was everything they had ever prayed for and more
He has just delivered the entire planet from the clutches of the evil one
He has just kicked his tail to the dungeons of hell
Who is this King of Glory you may ask?
His name is Jesus Christ the Messiah to the entire world!

geese

Today i watched the geese
crossing the pond outside my window
like Jesus with webbed feet
skating, 
then resting
in the frigid February air

this weekend i will bury my father
and watch my breath trail into the atmosphere
next to my mother's grave
i will say goodbye to
things i was familiar with
and hello to adulthood 
as i am no ones child anymore

it is a heavy weight to carry
but i will eat and drink and sleep it
until it is routine

and i will remember this winter 
and the pond of geese
like Jesus with webbed feet
skating then resting

God and the worm of part two

strange I remember the flames I was flying yet I hungered to fly	                                    
then spiraling burning death repented but the bird bigger than I                                         
comfort came with one drop of rain as the deep seed burst alive                                         
revived walking walking walking and now that we are talking                		     
at the stalk to me a great and mighty tower

higher higher further from the ground a great height                                                         
resting on a leaf looking around a predator in a near by tree   			      
I long to fly where did it come from fear of heights                                                             
a loud screeching piercing the ear Lord help thou me 	                                                    
look to me pick up your cross do what is right			                 
first steps of faith traveling all night stumbling a bit			 	   
as I grow more tired along the way I can’t quit  			                     
the blackened bird dives talons close by but still alive 			             
seems I’m spiraling again tired darkness even closer nigh                                                
Lord Jesus help thou me rest for this is not the end  				     
I dreamed of soaring straight above wonderfully with white wings                                      
all things clean love joy peace righteousness forever a glorious light                                    
thank you Lord Jesus thou has surely helped me 			            
awaken go tell all others of this glorious flight to come

Sinner

Hello God, I have many words to say to you.
However, you already know what I am going to say.
I know I have sinned in so many ways and again.
My life I have tried to live in honesty and faith.
True, I was faithful going to church each Sunday.
When I was young and a child, who needed to learn,
I confess; I failed to continue on a church venue.
My belief in you though never faltered at any time.
I have heard others blame and curse you so bad.
You; God would never place burdens on others.
You are a forgiving and loving God for his children.
I have made so many mistakes and evil has touched me.
You know of all these things from my present and past.
I could not hope for blessings, by your grace and love.
Though I have always believed in your son, Jesus true,
Along with what he gave to all, from his afflictions,
To which he died for everyone’s sins, along with mine.
I hope and pray for the forgiveness of my mortal body.
To which I give myself to you, for your judgment today.
Whatever you decide; is the power and glory of you.
For I am a sinner, I believe in your son, Jesus Christ.

I HAD NO PLACE TO REST MY HEAD PART 2

I was 10 years old when she prayed with me, 
that's when she gave herself to Jesus you see.

I remember her kneeling right next to my bed 
after she prayed she would kiss my forehead.

Mom was like an angel always by my side, 
we would sing and laugh as the days went by.

She loved the Lord with all of her heart and soul, 
I had no doubt in mind where she would go.

Mother watched evangelists over the years, 
she learned about Jesus it brought her to tears.

She watched Oral Roberts, Robert Schuller and Billy Graham.
I'm sure there were others that touched her heart, 
God knew what he was doing what an excellent start.

Then all of a sudden I started to cry, 
I remembered how I felt the day she died.

Four days of labor, four days of tears 
it caught me off guard when I heard what 
appeared....

The same morning I gave birth to my child,
someone had called to say, "Your mother has died".

I didn't want to remember, I didn't want to think, 
my heart was torn open, I couldn‘t breath.

The pain that I felt on that very day, 
I didn't believe would ever go away.

I had so many questions along with my tears, 
so many things inside me for years.

Beggar Man!


I saw you there resting
your chair near the door.

Long Black hair dirty
Needing a bath. smiling.

Red and green stick figure Jesus
Pictures you offered. Grinning.

I was moved by your plight.
Almost giving you my dollar.

Dark Eyes shining, pitiful.
I prayed Jesus would forgive me.

Poor people's change jingling 
as it fell into your bucket.

You paid for a juice with a big bill.
Your chair blocking the long line.

Rolling away to the fartherest space.
Standing to toss your chair into the car.

Counting the ones. Pouring  their change 
into your backseat bucket. Laughing.

Driving away in your red convertible.
baseball cap pulled low over shifty eyes.

The blond next to you chattering
no pity for a cripple in her adoring eyes.

I hope your Jesus on torn poster 
board  forgives YOU! Beggar Man!

protest against protesting children

put your barbies away!
put your J I Joes away children
it's time you grew up
threw up were told
at the ripe age of six or seven

that its a sick sick world
and you need to get involved

WOLF WOLF WOLF
screams little red riding hood
what beautiful eyes you have
WOLF WOLF WOLF
and then comes the hunter with the axe

Put your skipping ropes away
put you wooden swords away
time to grow up with the reality
that this
this is a sick world
go to bible boot camp
accept Jesus into your heart
and overlook this supposed crime

WOLF WOLF WOLF
screams little red riding hood
with tears in her eyes
full well knowing
shes about to be eaten alive

Little Bo peep protecting the sheep
knows soo little about the monstrosity of the terrors of the trickery
WOLF WOLF WOLF
and then you look at me and all the perverts with lollipops they are warned about
and they come onto the internet to meet strangers
and i say kick the children off the net
so i can have freedom of speach and work on building the future dream

Whose afraid of the big bad wolf
whose afraid of the big bad wolf
soo many sheep in disguise

listen up now children
accept Jesus into your hearts and realise im not hippocritical or anything
im not brainwashing you
but you yes you
you are the victom
and life is your nightmare
so protest grab a picket sign
put your dreams
away
forget about playing and join my ARMY

WOLF WOLF WOLF
scream,s little red riding hood
and little Bo peep 
looks among the sheep
and sees one by one
dead body the children of the korn have risen

like the game of laughter of the pyramids
haunting and protecting the king from trespassers
WOLF WOLF WOLF

its a sick world
and i don't want to revisit this nightmare

throw away this terror
or we'll all be living a nightmare you cannot fathom
where are you going wrong
and what are you teaching the children

Alice no longer in wonderland
but now shes screaming

OFF WITH HER HEAD!!

Judgement At Last 

Judgement At Last 

He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, 
giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he 
was able also to perform. He staggered indeed at the task when at hand he 
dropped the wooden thing then used another man to emphasize the difficulty that 
he faced and to pronounce forgiveness of race the Symone Cyrenne was a black 
ebon man and he came from a different land and caste the cross upon his back 
and carried the thing for HIS Jesus at least for the last half of mile to the hill 
where they nailed up my LORD and fulfill all the scriptures and promises 
prophecies filled Judgement at last not on us but on him who loves us best the 
color of skin upon Symone Cyrenne was the same as the color of my Jesus own 
face. Judgement at last.

Thou art the beauty of the rose
the fragrance sweet
inspiration to compose
thou art everything.
Thou art the only master
my eye is set upon
keeping my eye upon the sparrow

Thou art the morning and the night
encompassing the day within your light,
surrounding the night with luminosity bright
each star sings a song to Heaven.

BIOMYOPIC

BIOMYOPIC
Never am eye ever counting my self worth in the amounts and measures of this 
world the many blankets that eye have like an old Indian man this would lead me 
into madness and depression far too quickly then is my want the things afforded 
me is gold and silver lines my pockets but the stuffins that eye have and all the 
riches of this world yes even MONEY is not GOD and HE has Glory when eye 
gather and even when eye find eye just say thank you JESUS even in my mind 
The way is narrow the way is hard the way is easy the way is love.
The shoes upon my feet are not wearing out they keep there size and shape for 
many months now. NO one is perfect and things are not forever but the one who 
blesses us can make a shiny piece of leather
Last seemingly forever if it is on the sandel of his desert feet.
The Holy Son Of GOD the JESUS of the Nazarene landscaping the Jesus of the 
CROSS is HE who is my blessing. A good Christian man must examine himself 
to see if he is in the HUMAN race the thing to please remember is to have the 
attitude inside the forewithall to hide thyself from pride and foolish attitude of self 
decay and sometimes leaving water here and there is the hope of someone 
else’s day. A drink left out where poor one may soon find it may not seem like 
much in the Grand scheme of things but we must soon get started giving and the 
good deed comes in living and just having FAITH and leaving just a cup just ONE 
CUP of cold water in the place the poor man dwells eye can say with out reserve 
with out much thinking looking back eye have been that very thirsty eye have 
needed water finding none and eye was thirsty did ewe give me drink did ewe 
give me some. Eye left a cup of water for the poor man to drink and GOD has 
overflowed my wellness and eye am not now ever sick. This is my biomyopic.

Her Prayer

       Dearest Jesus, I hate this bitter life I'm living.  I suffer from abuse caused by my 
parents alcoholism.  The pain inside just hurts so much.  Mommie likes to hit me and daddy 
likes to touch.
       Jesus, late night when I'm all alone, I feel there's another place I can call home, and 
another family I can call my own.  Jesus I wish I could just hear your voice on the phone.  
But I don't know which numbers to press on the touch-tone.
       Jesus please if you're not too busy, cure my parents blindness so they're able to see,
how the emotional, physical scars are affecting me.  Don't allow me to be apart of their 
growing misery.
       Jesus I don't want my mon or dad, and if I had to choose - I would want to come to 
heaven, just to be with you.  You're the only one who cares and takes time to listen.  Jesus 
allow my parents to recognize your blessings, so they will understand what it is in their lives 
that's missing.
       So I'll go to sleep, hoping tomorrow's a better day;  In Jesus Name I pray...



Note: I wrote this through the eyes of a little girl, who being so young has love and faith in 
her Savior, Jesus.  That little girl is now grown - I know her personally. If the innocense of a 
child can believe with all her heart in Jesus - so can you the reader!

Judges and Mockers

Today, I ponder… 
Paraphrasing what Jesus said,
As a man thinks…so he is… 

If he criticizes, slams, knocks others, and shows scorn,
Will he become a hard-hearted, insensitive, bigot, unworthy of heaven?
If he makes fun of another for his own amusement,
Will the heavenly hosts laugh when he walks up to the judgment bar?
(Or will they mourn deeply for the loss of a brother?)

We ask God to forgive us as we forgive others.
I ask myself, “How am I at forgiving others?”
Paraphrasing what Jesus said,
As a man forgives…is he likewise forgiven?
If he does NOT forgive, is he, then, not forgiven?
If a man condemns, censures, and makes harsh judgments,
Will he then be condemned, censured and judged harshly
…at final judgment?

What will Jesus do?
Will he feel the pain of our lacking?
Will he take action against the unforgiving?
He has taken action in the past!
He threw over the money changing tables in the temple
Because they dishonored Heavenly Father –
Do we dishonor forgiveness when we judge others?

Carry

I stroll down to the wee burn
The snow feathers through the mist. 
I carry my camera
I carry my cares
I carry my requests
Yet I carry His presence.

Alone yet not alone
Out of the Spirit, into the mind
Impressions
Knowings
Perceptions.

I walk out of the mist
Back home
He carries me.

Prayer of Mary's Travail

Tax time is here,
and we've traveled so very far,
hundreds of miles to pay our share,
on a burdened donkey.
It's cold this time of year.

I am so very sorry
that I cannot see your whole plan,
I don't know where to birth this child,
there are no rooms at the Inn
and the time draws near.

Thank you for this stable.
I've blankets enough for the child.
Yes, yes, I remember the name,
Emmanuel, Lord of Light, meek and mild;
Jesus.

Oh Father, his eyes are amazing!
This child shall melt hearts of stone.
He has all ten fingers, and all ten toes,
surely, he shall lead the masses home;
back to your loving embrace.

Did you see those men who traveled so far?
They said they followed a star by night,
they brought gold, frankincense and myrrh,
said they dreamed of Jesus' birth tonight.
A Holy night.

This child conceived in Holiness,
I bring you, now, your son;
born of water, flesh, and Spirit.
Let Thy will be done.
Watch over him, please.
Amen.

tTthe Sacrificial Lamb 

The Father Abraham was in the desert near the place where GOD was at 
when there came a sound like thunder from the infinite place where GOD is at. 
“Take the boy and bind him up and tie him to MY altar and take thy sword in thy 
right hand and offer him a living sacrifice to me for eye am GOD.” 
This was the boy named Isacc in the wood of all the desert places where the 
voices of the 
GOD was heard from up above. 
And Abraham was never certain but he understood that GOD must be obeyed, 
and though it hurt him HE stood there with arm upraised and Brought UP the 
ARM with all his might to strike the child where he was bound where he did lay 
upon the altar of the GOD. But just before the deed was done and just when all 
his hope had gone and just before the SWORD did  plummet into Isacc and the 
deed would be recorded there was an ANGEL in the SUN. 
STOP, look there in the wood in that bush where LAMB is caught. 
There is the sacrifice for you to TAKE  to me Today, 
Let loose the BOY and take the LAMB and SLAY. 
This is the SACRIFICE of GOD. 
Because you ABRAHAM have not withheld thy SON from me, 
The Lambe will come the Virgin Birth and take all the peoples sins away. 
This Poem may startle some of ewe but the sentiment and deeds is true, 
if not the words please just remember that this is not scripture. 
The Christ is Jesus and he BECAME the living Sacrifice, 
And Isacc is my father in my Spirit and the Way for Gentiles to be won. 
And there is still the ANGEL in the SUN to point the way. 
Say Jesus and be done.

Stained Glass Manger Scenes

Stained glass windows with tiny white candles in them

Illuminating the stories embedded and etched from centuries past

It is the season to rejoice and worship the Christ of the manger scene

Come and witness the story as it is painted upon the ancient windows of the churches

Soon these windows will be no more, only a memory of the past

Soon there will be new stories to paint upon the windows of the churches

A story of victory and a story of a future for the children of God

Come sit in front of the tiny delicate candles and visit the artistic windows one last time

The new me

The new me is not seen on TV
the new me is not shrewd
and my life is not awkward
the new me gets closer to what I can't see
not for the most popularity
it's just so that I can have peace in what I really need
Jesus
the choice wasn't that difficult after He saved my life
I wish you knew
Jesus
He saves

The HereAfter

here there is  sorrow and fear after there is great peace 		                
here some madness sadness day and night after the endless double joy	                
here dying crying with pains after a tearless good morning 		                
here wars begun some cease after that none captives set free forevermore	                
here some lost some saved after this all walking the golden path paved	                
here some love and hate repenting forgiving others apathetically apostate	                
after all in perfect love in one accord kneel thanking you for your will	                 
here doors open some shut tight after the beautiful gates are open always	                
here some stumble darkly in their own light after some walking clearly to your true light     
here sin born a thief birthing death after new life begins giving running overflowing	    
here enemies abound even as I frown after with victorious smiles casting their crowns     
here running patiently by faith the course after it is finished resting in the Amen              
here some calling on thy name while others sadly don’t won’t to hear Jesus   	                
after time no more the name above all is loudly praised by all gladly adored 	                
here holy blood cries up from the ground afterward righteously worn whiter than snow 
Glorious Jesus thy perfect love endures forever what I long for now and hereafter

johnny doe you know he did
push-ups for jesus + johnny doe

MY JESUS

IT BEGAN!
They carried my Jesus away in chains!

They beat Him!
They laughed at Him!

They called Him a liar to His face!
His people wept!

SOMEONE STOP THEM, THEY SHOUTED!
DON'T YOU KNOW WHO HE IS?

HE IS THE SON OF GOD!
HE WAS SENT TO DELIVER EVERYONE FROM THEIR SINS!

They wouldn't listen!
They were consumed with evil!

They nailed my Jesus to the cross!
He endured more pain that day, than anyone has ever felt!

He could have had The Father release Him from The Cross
at any point and time!

He chose not to!
He endured until the end!
He did it for your salvation and mine!

They buried Him in the tomb!
Three days later, He rose again!

He went back to The Father in Paradise!
He went to prepare a place for His people in Heaven!

HE IS ALIVE!

what i pray for

I steal I lie
My sins are bind
To this very crime
I don’t know why
But all the time
I sin against Christ
But here the punch line
I want a second try
So here a rhyme

god I want to give forgiveness
I want people to have bliss
i know i got nothing to give you lord
My heart always feel torn
that what I pray for

open the door and see in me 
I want my familys to be safe you see
I honestly what them safe
for someday I could see there face
and tell i was okay

i know im corrupt
but please tell up above
allowed these people good or bad 
access to you're holy land

CAPITOL CITY

             I am a captive
   and a prisoner of your affections
    draw me with robes of purple
      wrapped with cords of silver  
              let me embrace you
 ten thousand times ten thousand nights
        with four times as many days
        until I can no longer distinguish
that there are two            but only one   us
                   and upon my lips
        the exclamations of exaltations

         you have produced prosperity
           for all peoples of the lands
      enlarged the bounties meant for all
Words of healing spring forth like waterfalls
           that saturate a thirsty earth
        a  river that descends to all nations
your generousity       the filling       of every table
    and the wine of gladness            every cup
until one cannot see     and end ever to your goodness
    forgotten the former times      like a nightmare
          no longer able to be remembered
                    take me in your net
                 thread me with your song
                  where the dance of joy
       has filled the courtyard      of our home  
                              Oh Zion
                  the capital city of the King
         and you oh barren woman will give birth
                     for your repurchaser

                the treasures of the nations
              being collected together the gifts
             that will adorn the Kings storehouse

             will flow the restoration  of all things
     Every gem of kindness     decorates your halls
      the true wealth of the nations belongs to you
             and your surpassing loving kindness

  I will extoll before you and all the families of the earth
                       You oh Royal Residence
                        decoration of the nations
           to be filled with the Song of the Bridegroom     
                          and the Song of the Bride
                    the crowning birth of the Diadem
                      the nursery for the nations
                       for you shall raise them up
with tender compassions and the milk of loving kindnesses
         and kindle a longing for the attributes of love

                   This gift is for you Oh Israel
                       the dwelling your maker
                    has constructed to house you
           Within Jah has placed the well spring of life
                 the everlasting presence of your King              
                       Amen , come Lord Jesus

Shadrack,Meeshack,and Abednego

Shadrack,Meeshack,and Abednego. 
My favorite bible story of all time. 
The men were just boys when the KING marched bye. 
They did not bend their knees at all. 
We can not worship something that can not even talk. 
The KING was livid and angry for a while. 
Stoke up that furnace and toss them all in. 
The fire was so hot that it killed all the men 
of the king. 
The men in the fire were just walking around 
filling the time with the glory they found 
three men entered the doorway of that furnace so hot 
but four men were seen walking hot. 
The fourth man in the fire was no angel of GOD, 
but the son. 
Merry Christmas my Jesus eye knoe it was him. 
The moral is clear unto me. 
Do not beat on the poor man to see. 
GOD Jesus will save him and me. 
The Power OF GOD is HIS SON.

From Blood to Coke (angel of sadness)

Maybe I’ll never learn, haunted by every turn 
Ignore these blessing just to keeps stressing 
The moment ceases to please us, lets examine this flaw 
As I snort pieces of Jesus through this broken straw 
Seems I go through misery stress 
Just to write about, that’s who I am 
So dear reader no worry’s 
It is me not you that I damn 
Perhaps I will never be a great writer 
Grasping for fate ever so higher than a pilot 
A soviet fighter 
My dreams are exhausted 
Hopefully I’ll die before you kill me 
Similar to living life so costly 
My failures tower over my enemies 
Tell the poor 
I am only average so don’t fancy me 
My impatience is a essence of non relevance 
Driven by whispers and quiet chants 
For I feel the times are lingering soon 
All sinners to this platoon 
Our mission to be cast 
No further than shadows on the moon 
Yet we’ll never learn haunted by every turn 
Ignore these blessing just to keeps stressing 
The moment ceases to please us, lets examine this flaw 
As I snort pieces of Jesus through this broken straw

JESUS Evidence Of Things Not Seen

BY faith we can kiss the feet that wore the shoes                                    
That the latchets we are unworthy to loose                                           
Leave are burdens with thanksgiving sweetly cry                                        
By faith we can reach up to the nailed scarred hands                                 
That led the blind man out of town in the way                                        
Keep looking up to the eyes that wipe away all tears                                   
By faith can lean upon Jesus' bosom                                                  
With listening ears hearing the heart beat of God                                        
Whispering saying that love shall never die                                            
By faith receiving his love with and without fears                                     
It is written love him he will led you in the most excellent way                   
Living to die dying to live it is by his strength we stand                             
By faith as Jesus once again heals the blind man looking at his face                  
The blind man looking around saw every man clearly                                   
Love is of God we must not from their lovely faces hide                                
By faith the brother we have seen on the street lying or stumbling by                
Love our brothers we have seen dearly                                                 
The knowledge of the saving grace for whom our saviour died                             
By faith and grace of our Lord Jesus in morrows by and by                              
Be that pure and perfect bride                                                        
Who is my mother,or brethren?",Jesus said we can by faith

Hypersensitive Imbecile

Ranting and raving
I'm always wrong to string you along
show you
how right you really are
I should stop 
smell the daisies
nothings getting better
you will come to know
what grows between the rows
the life lessons we don't realise and learn

I am just a hypersensitive imbecile
wanting to vanish
wanting to dissapear
looking through these eyes
screaming all the time
and i just know everything
cause of being me
all the pain I've recieved
cast out of the starry skies to fall out of this romanticism
with no get well card
nothing should stay this way
everything needs to change

so call me what you will
sick your dog on me
and sit and stay  
the chakras of your amazement 
manic tears you can't comprehend
I'll choke down another antidote for what's wrong with me
for not being soo perfect 
awake
aware
forgiven
upward sent
just like you
because you were granted a free ride through this life
where you become a god with the power to throw others away

soo preach
preach
rant and rave
lose your way
let me suck you down 
quicksand 
swamp
undertow
and sea
you're just like me
a hypersensitive Imbecile

only I know what's wrong 
where Jesus died for your sins
I am different
where he knew the truth of the conspiracies among kings
he never told the truth of
runaways and seas that never split
someone whose not coming in this lifetime
you might as well choke on that
rasorblade headache reality

that I am the closest t hing you will see to a miracle
besides the birds and the bees
The one 
that speaks of not understanding the world around me
are we the same?
do you think youre better than me
more humbled
more absolute 
do you send egotistical morons to their night terrors too?

are you a hypersensitive Imbecile
hush all the Blue revolutionaries saying Jesus never wanted the world to change

I'm a scared child
with picket sign
I'm a crying fairytale
that never ends
I'm a wish organized into heavens
guiding ships to shore
different than you
bigotry and small mindedness keeps us apart 
as i look for a soul mate
i know you've already fell from the secrets of love
learned nothing
know everything
what about being unsent 

the one i have Uninvited

so why do you keep aiming for me

because youre just like me
sitting on the couch of a therapist in the back of your mind
youre a hypersensitive imbecile

Glory Be To GOD

Glory Be To GOD
that Jesus is the LORD to the GLORY of the father   (King James Version)
Philippians 2:11   (Read all of Philippians 2)
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of 
God the Father.
That every knee shall bow and every tongue confess That Jesus is the LORD to 
the Glory Of The Father, that we may ZOA at the second coming of Christ. 
Everyone is welcome and none shall be cast out though thy sins be as scarlet 
just say Jesus and believe and just say Jesus dare to breathe HIS Holy Name 
and live. AND then my earthly friend we must learn to live again a different way in 
love. A wonder full of love at GODS Graces from above, the light and light the 
silent night the Power of HIS Might is not the flesh we dwell in but the SPIRIT that 
gives us life. First say JESUS then continue on to live
its a peaceful easy feeling in the MIDDLE of the earth in the middle of THY search 
for GLORY be to GOD. Then find Jesus the ONLY name of GOD.

Walking with Jesus

Walking with Jesus

I love walking with Jesus
His steps are like mine
He does not say let hurry
He always takes the time need

I love walking with Jesus 
As He shows me thing I need to see
He teaches me thing I need to know

I love walking with Jesus 
Because most people are always hurrying
As they never stop to see what he is showing them

I love walking with Jesus 
I thank God for Jesus 
never in a rush 
He wants the best for me

MADE UP POEM

 MADE UP POEM 
MADE UP POEM 
Managerial inseparable font new words made up just on the spot 
warpped constitutional practices they took JESUS out of school 
they pray to the dollar bill and grab as many of them 
as they can possibly imagine 
they start out slow and then they snowball 
they change the history in the history books 
they give the children dirty looks 
they have an analytical mind 
they have no rhyme or rhythum 
though they beat upon a drum 
they tattoe dreams upon their arms 
and sleep in constellations of alarm 
they ruin life for all the rest of us 
they make it hurt and make it suffer 
they indicate and relate the waif 
they simulate their lover 
they do it undercover of the light 
mye soul will be with JESUS 
for they murdered all the crowe in me 
they fight they kill and they could not pay the bill 
what is worth thy soul in all eternity 
a new york t shirt and one dollar bill to some

BlackandEbonMan 
 
This Poem is taken from my Jesus Central Course Jesus 101. 
 
If you were Mark, writing a short report to demonstrate to a Roman audience that 
Jesus (a Jewish man) was "the Son of God", what would you include in that 
report? This is Charlax speaking as iff eye am MARK talking to the gentle reader 
true: 

"We watched as JESUS was crucified he walked with that TREE on his back and 
fell dropping it unable to go on in apparent defeat he fell to one knee he was so 
strong he was never completely down we thought it was disgrace but there 
seems to be a reason now the SYMON one of CYRENE a black ebon man was 
found standing in the crowd a broad nose and back the cross was lifted up and 
placed upon the negro back to make the forgiveness of us all complete and color 
no barrier to GOD 

This is for my black friend at the University Blue and Read for yew.

Money Preacher

Money Preacher

Money Preacher 
 
 
There is a certain amount of blindness a man like me should possess 
inside his thinking crevices when confronting elders and their goons the 
preacher was waxing eloquent too soon he shouted in a  louder voice he said : 
and eye quote this from my memory ewe “ give unto me no small denominations 
no dollars fives or tens twenties you may keep its money we are after in the plate” 
Hundred dollar bills and many of them is what eye want to see” and then he tried 
to justify himself to me this preacher smiled and said “ my son is sick and we are 
staying at the MOTEL and we mean to be here preaching for many days so give 
the money to me and make us wealthy now for preaching is my business and 
living anyhow. Eye opened up my bible and the words came spilling forth from 
lips that smoked and drank and cussed. JESUS is the lord and eye had just 
barley gotten started when the curtain fell on this actor and they began to handle 
me they used the only thing they had to hand and hand to hand it was they beat 
me in  my belly and made me fall to ground. The only thing eye was certain of 
was needing help there was none then eye managed to drag my carcass up and 
out of the dirt beside the grand tent of a preacher sadly lacking in the etiquette of 
morals so what if eye was wrong was it right for them to hit me eye suppose was 
GOD like this so happy at the fists? My Jesus fills my bowels with love eye knoe 
he did not command them men to smite me no matter what eye said that day. 
The works of GOD do not include the fisticuffs of goons so many times we pray 
and fall to earth and under foot of men intent on works. It hurts. 
A preacher with no pity a tent used for decay a place in Heaven for the poor cast 
out today listen to me on the coming of the judgment day. 
The poor man will be the one inside and the castaway is you.

Dear Chuck, Dad, Mom, & Larry

I thought of you all again today 
As I always think of you all
As each day goes by 
I miss the togetherness
I miss the visiting 
I miss the calling
I miss the talking 
 I find things have changed 
I ways I sometimes don't understand
Ans yes I know your in a better place
Yes God has you all now 
Yes all I can do is wait till we meat together 
As I do God's work
I find that some how your words still reach me
Yes I am filled with your presents once again
I do love and miss you all very much
As some day we will be together again
So till then I will be solace 
And to remember you and think about you daily 
will have to do till we meat in Heaven once again

Writ for AA 

Even if just one drop, of your blood, 
fell off that Cross. 
And dropped for me. 
I am set free,

I will drink sweet wine no more. 
Until I pass death`s door. 
Please set a place for me.

Is it a poem not just a rhyme maybe a riddle  	                                   
though it keeps time could be something in the middle			             
not  fairy tale or fable could it be a paradox not 				        
is it psalm or love song paradisiacal parable                                         
Not to believe it maybe a panoramic mistake of eternal consequences                   
Its been called a lot of things most bought less read most misunderstood 
I am not a literary giant by no means but its dear to me nor am I self-reliant  
Just a man with a dictionary nor was i a visionary                                      
I who was dead and now I am a live

Sea I had an enormous vacuum in my heart nothing could  fill	                       
No pleasure of this world did. not sex,drugs or rock-and-roll pill		    
Using bigger words than I intended in hope too keep your attention

To tell you the truth and it’s simple of the Living Word of God the Loving Saviour     
Of the world the Lord Jesus that lives in me and I in him and is all reliable     
Believe only repent and believe the gospel repent of you sins ask Jesus into your heart 
God’s love letter to you the scriptures testify of him his loving favor                
So do I  READ the Holy Bible

The Wages of sin.

The pastor  at the podium..... bible in hand
The congregation belt out ......Take a stand
a soulful hymn, for Jesus.
Trumpets  blast....cymbals clash
reverberating within one and all.
The church  shakes..threatening to fall
.....what a noise the congregation makes
shouting ,dancing, clapping hands
hysteria increases...as all take a stand
for Jesus.
Amen one man shouts...falls to the ground
writhing and crying a terrifying sound.

A women  next to him,hops around the aisle, 
humming sweet jesus..........come to me now
 others follow her cue...... taking a vow
to serve Jesus forever more.
Soon everyone is shouting, exhorting all from above
To fill them with Jesus love.
Another screams I see Jesus 
standing up above.
Yes, Yes  others chorus...I see Him now.

I want to see him too..shouts another
stepping over a crumpled man.
Open my eyes , open my heart  sweet Jesus
to that wonderful sight.
Children stare bewildered 
to see a parent prostrate
 filling them with  fear.....a terrible state
Yet another cries
I'm moved by the spirit.....
sweat drips from her brow..... 
foundation and eye shadow slip
  and with sweat ,run an erratic course
down to trembling lips.
All in praise  to Jesus. Glory to Him.

Tell me  my friends... 
aren't we putting ouselves through a lot?
Isn't it time we gave up on sin?

why eye can be a poet

why eye can be a poet 
why eye can be a poet 
eye was not rich 
or even famous not built like some gREEKgod 
Not gifted much but almost worldly 
And almost taken by the sins of lust 
Created once to be a finite thing of dust 
But recreated in the image of GODS own son 
This JESUS who has died upon the cross 
He told me in his actions to have faith 
He told me not in words but in his deeds 
Charlax is a poet please write these words 
That pleases me and tell the violette 
That she is LOVE and nothing can be better 
For a poet than to have a violet love. 
This JESUS that eye have yes he is GOD. 
And the violet ewe is now my love.

Walking On Water

Walking On Water 
Justified by Jesus sacrifice. 
Jesus shed blood , one ddropp for me , 
cleaned all the things that I have done , 
my past is gone , I am set free. 
Death it self will NOT hold me. 
My works are not the price I pay. 
My Lord has a robe for me , 
washed whiter than the snow. 
No gloved fist can send me there , 
but I will fly on ^A^ngel wings , 
to Heaven when I go. 
The ground beneath my feet feels like a lake 
of water turning solid as I walk toward my 
Saint Peter from the center of my storm. 
Learning to breathe the air again 
and live in Jesus love. 
I walk on water.

Recapitulation

Recapitulation
Anger is not meant to be a way of life is it it is only just a reflex not meant to stay 
in heart or fill it and just lie. The men have JESUS to consider and to try to be 
forgiven not a creature of some meanness in the dark and loathsome world we 
have been given none no love no wonder at it all just admonition to remember 
death a man hanging on a cross He and he alone is love and GOD.
When eye go near a Church to pray eye lean against the wall like a JEWISH man 
in thrall that GOD would even hear him.
When there was so many people in one place eye wondered at the fate of all the 
rich for they came in cars and going out to eat and living in them houses with 
clean sheets it makes me wonder how they live at all is this Church is this the 
meeting that we seek no the established buildings all have walls and they will 
fall like Jericho in time to reveal the excess pandering of hate the locked doors 
and halls so full of death and misery les miserables.
For GOD is love and the way to him is faith not works lest man should boast.
Learn to recapitulate not just hang on. Learn to love. When you say how can a 
man love GOD we must have some love to learn to love our brother or our 
neighbor if we live so all alone than have some charity just leave some water at 
the  bus stop please for the poor street urchins still have none. And when you 
pray say JESUS please and cross the heart like a catholic does for there may be 
something to that after all. A Roman soldier smiting breast and bowing head and 
asking GOD to hear his prayer oh LORD a sinner being blessed is what we are. 
Murder is at rest.

TRILOGY OF THE HUMMINGBIRD Part Two

TRILOGY OF THE HUMMINGBIRD 
Part Two

The time seemed to stop at some greater insistence than myself 
and eye began to look around for something found 
a something overlooked a something missed 
a something usually lost in the hurry hurry hurry bustle 
of the rushing hurry up in a commuter day 
The paddle wheel had stopped and time was gone 
eye saw the world it seemed to disappear and then YES eye SAW GOD. 
He reveals himself to us in everything we see 
the EARTH and sky and all the living things. 
Eye noticed the hummingbird at rest 
the thing was profiling for me to get me to notice it 
like LOOK at me eye am a hummingbird thing 
and the wings they have 
that go so fast and furious was not moving 
that is what eye noticed and such a strange thing 
and seldom seen a hummingbird at rest 
and then eye remembered the poem that eye contrived 
the shadow of the hummingbird now called Spirit Jesus 
and then eye was doubly blessed because 
the sun caught me and eye beheld 
my SHADOW on the ground and eye could not believe my eye 
for it seems that GOD is indeed in me and that has made me smile 
and faith is better kept even for a little while 
and GOD in Jesus smiled at me today in Spirit and in truth.

Eye Have Five
Eye was looking for three days looking everywhere no snail mail is coming no 
money could eye find upon the ground eye was getting frowned upon in thinking 
wrong and finally let it go and eye stopped mye looking for mye five a bad time at

looked no more upon the ground and then a passing stranger in his haste to 
conceal his giving grace handed me a crumpled bill it was mye five as he left eye 
tried to thank him he quickly turned away and tried to hush me up reinforced my 
faith in people if they believe in GOD above eye quickly thanked my Jesus and 
then gave the thing away again to someone else to pass the gift along smiling off 
to the side that the stranger believes in JESUS at least enough to let a five dollar 
bill go bye eye passed it on in letting go eye have it now in GOD above that man 
gave me hope and eye passed it on to give some hope to another someone he 
gave to me he gave to ewe he helped someone a stranger too.

Guileless

Guileless 
Guileless 
 A study of the Spirit of GOD in his people. 
They said that about the JESUS how there was no guile 
found in His mouth, so eye began to wonder at the way eye have been cussing 
and the thoughts that have been coming out of mine. The thing needed to be 
remembered is the Cross and the work that Jesus did is not diminished 
 by the flesh and the dead works of our bodies as we go about our daily 
business even Saul not the King but the Apostle Paul was sorry for saying 
curses unto men. 
The way we can remember is what Jesus said upon that thing that wooden part 
of Tree the Cross for ewe and me. 
He said GOD forgive them for they know NOT what they do. They were there and 
they had done he did not say 
They did NOT do he said to GOD to make it true to please forgive them in there 
ignorance for hurting HIM. 
He did not rail down threats or imply the fire of fiery judgments but instead quite 
simply died of a broken heart and WHEN he left his mortal coil he TORE the 
curtain in the Judgment hall between the LAWS of MOSES and the tabernacle 
where even this old gentile may someday dwell and then HE went to Heaven.

Jesus died for your sins I'm different

Jesus died for your sins
I'm here to lead you to peace
in pieces 
in layers
of politicaly commited schemes
and futuristic bibles foreshadowing games that reality will be playing

where jesus died for your sins

I'm here to lead you to peace

sway a little to realise
the ultimatum

life's a stage everybody an actor
false prophets with a getaway plan
and life lessons and salvation for those who were sentenced to damnation

in pieces in layers
like a bible not written foreshadowing everything
amysteruy of revelation
of perfected spiritaualism and lidfe lessons 
with no contradictions

a world script
and the recycled dream of self healing

where Jesus died for your sins

I'll be leading ypu to peace

don't go looking that wasnt the clue
it's something we have yet to write together
a wavelength ive pondered almost perfected
and now its time to ask
do you wan to ccave into the nightmare or the dream

Jesus died for your sins
so I'm here to lead the world to  peace
in pieces
with their layers
and strayegies
in a recyc;ed dream soo perfect
they wont believe it

one book they cant stop reading
but i am the game you cant stop playing
sway a little it all falls apart

and somewher i'll be givving you clues of digging to the devil
of  atime capsule
so you canpiece it together
and start over

since jesus died for you sins
I will ead you to peace
but this obsession is not easy 
and it costs billions
it takes million sof minds
and hours and lives
and politicians and hearts 

where jesus died for you sins I am different

I will lead you to world peace
