January Stance

Look and review. Look and review. The New Year is coming. Review’s what we do. What have I believed in? What lies have been told? What truth has ascendance? For truth is my gold. What lies have invaded and reworked the Truth? Where have I departed, diminished forsooth? Where have I veered off from true Liberty’s path, Compromised integrity, brought on God’s wrath. The New Year is coming. A new slate is here. History’s drawing new pictures of fear. Will it be fear of what people might say, Or fear of the Good Lord who loves us today. Shall I pay attention to cultural lies? Or shall I look Heavenwards, one of God’s spies Who constantly roam around Heavenly places To bring back its perfumes in kindness and graces. The spies of our Father have wisdom to go From a closet of prayer to the big world below With the gifts of the Spirit, of wisdom in kind, Knowledge un-natural, miracle mind. So how may I check that my pathway lies true? More time in the Heavenly places is due, That the words of my mouth, which are weapons enough, May achieve on this earth all His miracle stuff!

Smile ˜ An Angel said to myself a couple of months ago now that apart from * Jesus Christ * I could do Nothing! ˜ I think I'll hold fast to that Truth & Wisdom and just relax as I go with the flow and avoid all the this and all the that, my dear precious Helen ˜ Tis so easy to be cast into the maze of compound thoughts; making mountains instead of climbing they to plant the joyful flag of, its all good * I do love Your Beauties poem although for, I find many points of light amid its splendid verse ˜ Seek and one shall find the door unto, paradise forevermore * What else need we know? ˜ Happy Holidays ˜ My love always, John!:) ˜

Dear John, Thank you so much for your enthusiasm over January Stance (I renamed it from December Prompt) because it's January now!) However "Your Beauties" was not my poem. Some mistake there. Not to worry. Blessings, and may 2012 be a year of victory and success for you. Helen
