Seek

I went out to find You
I started at a school
I thought I would see You
Holding the Golden Rule

I walked down the hallways
Checked every single door
listened for sounds of praise
But you weren't there any more

I went to the Court house
Surely they want You there
Helping a battered spouse
But no one seemed to care

It seemes You're not welcome
No more justice any more
The old ways now are dum
They pushed You out the door

I went to check the mall
Because it's the season
You weren't blessing us all
It's Santa for some reason

Maybe You are waiting
Patiently at my home
My spirit starts singing
Surely there You must roam

Upon my arrival
I'm expecting You there
I pick up my Bible
To prove to You I care

At once I start to choke
I can't stop my cough
The dust is like smoke
There's so much to wipe off

I'm part of the problem
I should take time to pray
If I want Your freedom
I shouldn't throw You away

    Sometimes I wonder if I will run out of things to write about but it seems to get easier and easier. I like the contests they help sharpen my tools and help me to learn more about others as well as myself.

    richard I came way back here to tell you about myself. I am a very young 57. I say that because all the time people act surprised to learn my age and tell me I look like late 30's or early 40's. I used poetic license in my poem on roses. My husband will actually not reach the 40th until three more years!

    Whats the use of a poetic licence if you don't use it? My wife is a very young Fifty Four so I can appreciate what you are saying. Three years will come quick enough.

    Richard, you have made an awesome statement. If we take the time to look at the way we live for God, and try to see if we are giving God all of our time or some of our time, we can pull up and give him all the attention and praise that he so richly deserve, because he deserve all of our praise, even though we are not worthy. Thanks for sharing a beautiful write. I love it.

    This my friend is very appreciated. It seems like we have fallen away from the believes of the founding fathers - God is no longer welcome in some parts of America. The Word says that if we humble our selves and turn back from our wicked ways, The Lord Himself will heal our land, and hear our prayers - 2 Chronicles 7:14 - Dio

    Both our Countries could use his healing. It is not quite as bad in Canada but it is getting close. I heard a woman on the radio saying it was offensive if you say Bless you when someone sneezes. Pretty scary path we are heading down.

    It's all about a relationship with God, not about ceremony and religion. Easy yet tough for most of us to grasp. Us humans tend to like complicating things and giving ourselves hoops to jump through.

    Awww!!! This is beautiful!! If I want your freedom, I shouldn't throw you away- amen to that Richard. Good job, as always! :)
