The Treasure Of Birth

It's hard to describe
that true sense of pride

that comes with the worth
of your babies birth

A child takes your heart
right from the start

and wills you to sow
a love destined to grow

From dress ups to cupcakes
from boo-boos to heartbreaks

it's all worth the pain
from the treasure we gain

Time spent together
can only be measured

in memories we hold 
as part of our soul

God keep this life
from turmoil and strife

give it love and care
and blessings to share

For all that we ask
is that we're up to the task

and do all that we must
to honor your trust.

My Three Mirrors

My Three Mirrors

Why is the World so obsessed with obscenity? 
While we start searching for our true identity;
An old mirror reflects, only part of the past; 
Present has come and past no longer will last.

A second mirror with the present now is here;
On third mirror will be future close and near
Waiting for the present to finally pass by; 
On all three combined shall start to rely.

Mirrors are Father, Son and the Holy Ghost, 
And what I prefer about all of them the most
Is when balanced in our lives all three will be, 
From sin and misery surely will set us free. 

James Thomas Horn, Retired Veteran
Inspired by Eve Roper Mirror poem.

Look So Trim

Then there was time that seemed so terrible
Everything that happened was unbearable
I had hoped would never happen again
And God would save me from my sin.

By things like that I have been plagued
While in prayer to God have often begged
I know You truly are the sacred one
Please forgive me for what I have done.

From all of my sins I am now forgiven
God's love is why I continue to be living
And if it really had not been for Him
Then I still would be fat and not look so trim.

Wasted Angels

Howard Marks and God Almighty
Shared a spliff, and had a whitey
Then had the munchies, and a bong
Annoying Peter with the pong
By which time it was far too late
To frisk young Howard at the gate
God, seeing Peter’s consternation
Outlined the process of creation
How on day three he made the weed
With every other tree and seed
To raise in some, apotheosis
And test some others, with psychosis

Now, Howard’s stash was pretty small
And didn’t last too long at all
So, as he didn’t see the point
Of heaven’s joys without a joint
He got his bong, and skins, and tin
Chucked all the roaches in the bin
And, following a wicked smell
Went wafting off to score, in hell

St. Peter looked above and groaned
As all the angels flew past stoned

Spirits Will Uplift

Spirits Will Uplift

When can this finally be a wake up call?
So start to stand up before we finally fall
And bring everyone back together again
With many smiling faces and spirit within.

I really never like bragging or to ever boast
But of many things that worry me the most
It is my poems no longer to continue to write
Wanting to challenge you and then invite.

Ebola and killing have been in the air;
Of all things in Ferguson what is fair
Why would you want to take a life away?
Maybe while holding a big walrus at bay.

God save me from sin and remove all fear
Knowing Christmas time is close and near
Your Son truly was our very greatest gift
And now all of our spirits you will uplift.

Inspired By In A Perfect World by Diane Christian

Inspired By In A Perfect World by Diane Christian

Once you do prefect,
It will then become perfect;
Part of perfection.

It must require a certain selection
Of things that appertain to perfection
If perfect is what we want to obtain
God will make us able to stand the strain.

What I have heard from latest scoop
Jesus won't want us to jump through hoop
Or constantly in circles walking around
He waits for us wanting to be found.

There may be many obstacles involved
But with God's help they will be dissolved
While in our prayers He is close and near
Ask and all of your sins will soon disappear.

Faith, hope and love together can alleviate
All sin and hopelessness so full of hate
God high in heaven will be walking there
To share with us His world beyond compare.

Will Abide

Will Abide

What would life be like today, Hear every person as they try to say, They were 
failures because of me; God here are my prayers with this plea.

Oh God see me for what I have been; Full of folly locked into sin, As it follows 
me from door to door, Until I can't stand it anymore.

If life I lived I could only replace, You would find a smile on my face; My life to 
God is now dedicated; No longer what I do will be ill-fated.

Joy will fill my very heart and soul, And what ended up being my greatest goal, 
Is knowing God is always at my side, And in me will continue to abide.

An Answer to Question

An Answer to Question

For answer to question my mind does yearn;
How long will it take for my soul to return?
Back to heaven where it once had been,
With Jesus second time will soul return again?

Distance between heaven is how long?
To be right does it really require a wrong?
When you want a sing a song properly,
Do the words and notes have to agree?

To be saved tell me what requirements are
And I know that God is my guiding star
Believing in Him has to be a major part;
What should I do for my saving to start?

Suppose last moment of life I am now living;
My soul back to God I have been giving
Hope he handles it with a whole lot of care
Until soul in heaven is finally there.

Into heaven, my soul did safely arrive
Over such a long distance had to survive
But I know length of time will be brief
Which surely will provide me with relief.

What I wonder about and also suppose
Will my soul need to have travelling clothes
Once in heaven by all  will be recognized
Even though some were actually surprised.

From start, it was me who they recognized.

I just got free passage out of the graveyard,
I got my Get Out Of Death jail release card

Shall We Try For One More Year

How many years now has it been – maybe fifty-seven? We’ve traveled down some pleasant roads, on our way to Heaven. We’ve looked into each other’s eyes – seen both joy and despair. We’ve wondered how we’d make it when resources were not there. In looking back to find just how this love of ours began I believe it is controlled by some divine master plan. I believe if God does not exist there’d be no you and me. And all this time together would be less than destiny. I know that my redeemer lives – God’s word tells me so – He sent you as a soul mate as through this life I go. He knew there would be obstacles; I know He put some there To determine if we’d solve them with the mighty gift of prayer. I believe the lesson we have learned in traveling down life’s road Is to bring our troubles to Him to lighten up the load. We realize that we’ve been blessed sharing time together here Still one decision faces us --- Shall we try for one more year? Written for my wife on the occasion of our 57th…12/21/12 … Let’s go again Darlin’…. John Posey

Me and My Guitar

Me and My Guitar

God to me was pleasant and nice
So nothing did I need to sacrifice
And every day would hold my hand
To tell me that He does understand.

God's willing to accept me as I am
Because I say yes and no ma'am
And to God will be always sure
That for everything Hehas a cure.

I may toil and tarry again and again
And every time when I start to sin
Forgives them even if black or white
Done morning, noon and into the night.

When I see a shining star in the sky
Stop everything and to God say Hi
He may be either close or away far
Loves songs I play on my great guitar.

If opera will be willing to welcome me
I am sure I will set their souls all free
As soon as they hear my fabulous voice
Will all sing along and start to rejoice.

What Jesus Means to Me

What Jesus Means To Me

This poem is based on sermon by Father Dave Davis,
Rector of St. James Episcopal Church, Shallotte, NC
on March 22, 2015. Gospel for Day was John 12:20-23.
Maybe they might put my poem on their website.

What Jesus Means To Me

Who is this Jesus supposed to be?
What should He really mean to me?
Of course, He is our Lord and Savior
And want to find myself in His favor.

There are things that I do not deny
Want Jesus to be a nice, great guy
Being available and also convenient
And like Him best when He is lenient.

What is it that we want Jesus to do?
Be nice and make dreams come true;
Answer prayers each and every one;
When He's around have a lot of fun.

Have Jesus help me grow and grow
And where it is I might have to go
Be with me up until my dying day
To heaven be sure to take me away.

Do I have to be much more direct?
What is it I am supposed to expect?
From Jesus but know that I am glad
His big job to do I never, ever had.

The Lovers Dance

It was their night they shone bright as they danced their sweet dance
Two lovers embraced in their world of romance.

They laughed and they cried as their eyes locked in stare
It was their world for this moment as if no one was there.

And their steps they so flawlessly glided in tune,
To a melody that touched everyone in that room.

Their passion brought envy to onlookers there,
Who secretly questioned their own love affair.

But as the night closed and came to an end
The lovers were blind to what lie round the bend.

The house and the cars and the jobs that went bad
The kids drove them crazy and their savings were drab.

So they fought to hold on to the things in their life,
That caused them so much of their pain and their strife.

They fought with each other like enemies do,
And dismissed in their life everything that was true.

So when sickness and hardships and troubles occurred,
Their vows to commit seemed truly absurd.

Their home and their kids would now take a backseat,
For their moral obligation they chose not to meet.

So I Ask …
What happened to that dance they danced so well?
With passion and truth everyone could tell.

What happened to their dance where they held so tight?
What happened to the wonder of their glorious night?

What happened to the words that charmed their ears?
With a passionate rhythm that brought them to tears.

What happened to those vows that poured from their heart?
The “I love you forever and till death do us part”.

For these aren’t just words we borrow for the day,
From another who tells us this is what we must say.

We say them cause it’s what we feel true in our heart,
It’s a God given blessing we commit from the start.

But these words are now lost as they fall on deaf ears,
Since the pain and the struggles they’ve created these years.

So the lesson here learned dear people of odd,
Is that love is so fragile but made strong with our God.

So stop fighting for power and money or need,
For all of this nonsense is only our greed.

Keep God in your life and he’ll walk you through,
When heartache and pain and losses ensue.

For why commit vows in the eyes of our God,
And not call on him when life gets too hard?

For the truth of our vows we are all meant to see,
is that marriage is not, made of two, but of three

If reading these words ring some truth in your heart,
Decide that today you will make a new start.

Go hug your spouse and say something kind
Don’t let the small stuff cloud up your mind.

We’re all just lost souls who are trying to cope
If  not there for each other then where is the hope?

You see, the anger, the fight
that in us abide, Is only the insecure child inside.

So rise up above all this fear and this pain,
And see all the beauty that there is to gain.

By trusting in God and his will for you
Together forever he’ll see you both through.

For life is too short for our miserly ways
cheap on our love hence dreading our days.

He made us to love in all that we do
To wake up each morning and start us a new.

So pray for your spouse, ask God to be kind
To the person you prayed in the beginning to find.

They’re still the same person you loved from the start
But life and it’s troubles have hardened their heart.

You vowed that you’d love them in sickness and health
Now is your chance to show God what you felt.

So rise up my friend, don’t say that you’re through
For what if your loving God gave up on you?

Start Singing to the Choir

Start Singing to the Choir

What would you really rather do?
Have delightful dream that does come true;
Maybe a great game will want to go to
Where all of the players you would know.

Each place with friends no matter where I went,
By the Lord Himself I had always been sent;
Book in Bible decided He wanted me to write
If with me it certainly would be alright.

Was my biggest assignment I ever had
And when it was done boy was I glad;
Never charged a send and did it for free;
Went and did write book of Deuteronomy.

To read Bible God has the strangest ways
After finally finished had to give God praise
Several days passed by and were gone
When He wanted me to write book of John.

Roaring and raving mad was almost stark;
God told me to write about Noah and the Ark
About people and animals who were aboard;
Each one of them lividly loved the Lord.

I'm no longer a teenager and fully grown
And now have a Bible of my very own;
What I still like about mine the best
Is by God and Jesus it has been blessed.

Each time when Bible is in my presence
I love its each word in every essence;
Got older and days of my life increased
And my parents wanted me to be a priest.

There are ten commandants I can count
And Jesus gave great sermon on a mount;
Being I'm of great health, hale and hearty
Church gave me a house-warming party.

And guess what to my wondering surprise
They said again I started to sermonize
Now at church each time when I am there
Forget sermon and for us give a prayer.

Service is short, sweet, simple and exquisite;
Each and every time when you pay us a visit
Before you expire give your whole entire,
And join so you can start singing to the choir.

Prayer for those who live alone

Prayer for those who live alone

I live alone, dear Lord, please stay by my side,
All my needs please be my guide

Grant me good health, for that I pray
To carry on my work each day

Keep pure my mind, thoughts and deeds
Help me be kind, to meet others’ needs

Save me from harm and malicious tongues,
From pain and fear and evil ones

When I am sick, in need of care
Lord, I pray, that You be near

When I am low or in despair.
Lift up my heart and hear my prayer

I live alone, dear Lord, I have no fear,
Because I know, that You are near.

Hidden Christmas

I look all around and what do I see?
Christmas in code, a pure fantasy.

A plump happy Santa, a child on his knee
Under the bough of a tall Christmas tree.

Stockings and ribbons, merry and bright
Plenty of gifts of varying heights.

Snowmen and reindeer, angels and lights
Dreaming of feasting and sleigh rides at night.

But friend, don't be taken with this imagery
For Christmas is more than what we can see.

True Christmas began in a whole different way
A virgin, a stable, a babe on the hay.

And God with a plan, to save men from sin
A Savior, a gift for mankind, sent from Him.

A humble beginning, no earthly delights
He broke through the darkness and gave us the Light.

So do not be fooled by this fanciful sight
That does not remember God's power that night.

He conquered our sin and freed us from death
For Christmas is CHRIST, and His gift is the best.

Just Checking in Today

" Just Checking In Today"
Modified by Franklin Price
from a posting on Facebook
My sincere gratitude to the original author, who is unknown to me
Modified 4/1/2016

A preacher passing through his church, In the middle of the day, 
Was pausing by the altar To see who came to pray.
Just then the front door opened, and a man came down the aisle,
The preacher frowned, as he saw the man, had not shaved in quite a while.
His shirt was torn and shabby and his coat was worn and frayed,
The man knelt down and bowed his head, then rose and walked away.

At precisely noon, each day, the preacher saw this chap.
Each time he knelt a moment, a lunch pail in his lap.
The preacher not without concern, with robbery a fear,
Decided to stop and ask the man, “What are you doing here?”
Said, “ I am a factory worker and my lunch a half an hour.
It also is my prayer time, for finding strength and power.”

“I can stay only a moment, because the factory's far away;
As I kneel here talking to the Lord, This is kinda what I say:”

“I Just Came By To Tell You, Lord, How Happy I Have Been,
Since We Found Each Other's Friendship and You Took Away My Sin.
I Think About You Always, Don't Know Much How To Pray.
So, Jesus, This is the Ben, Just Checking in Today.”

The preacher felt quite foolish, told Ben that it was fine.
That he was always welcome to pray there anytime.
'It's time to go, and thanks,” said Ben, as he hurried to the door.
The minister knelt right away, his knees were on the floor
Tears flowed down his cheeks, as he talked with Jesus there.
He felt the spirit in him, as he repeated old Ben's prayer:

“I Just Came By To Tell You, Lord, How Happy I Have Been,
Since We Found Each Other's Friendship and You Took Away My Sin.
I Think About You Always, Don't Know Much How To Pray.
So, Jesus, This Is the preacher, just Checking In Today.”

One day, the preacher noticed, That old Ben hadn't come.
More days passed and still no Ben, he began to worry some. 
Went and found the factory, asked of Ben, learned he was ill.
The hospital staff was worried, though he had given them a thrill.
The time that Ben was with them, no one was ever bored
His smiles and joy contagious, helping people his reward.

The head nurse could not understand, why Ben could be so glad,
When no flowers, calls or cards had come, and no visitors he had.
The preacher stayed there by his bed, told Ben of her concern:
No friends had come to show they cared, did he have nowhere to turn?.
Looking surprised, old Ben spoke up,  Said with a winsome smile;
“The nurse is wrong, she couldn't know, He's been here all the while.”

“Every day at noon He comes, a dear friend of mine, you see,
He sits down and takes my hand, leans over, says to me:
'I Just Came By To Tell You, How Happy I Have Been,
Since We Found This Friendship, And I Took Away Your Sin.
I Think About You Always And I Love To Hear You Pray,
For You Ben, This Is Jesus, Just Checking In Today.”

God's Pie in the Sky

God's Pie in the Sky

Pie tasted so yummy and wouldn't you know
Second piece too I really, surely loved so
And the more of the pie that I did eat
I found out last piece had grown four feet.

Last piece walked away through my door
And it could never be found any more
So my lovely wife and I both together
Decided that we would bake another.

This was even better than the first one
And I ate it all and when I was done
A cavity did appear on one tooth;
I wasn't happy because this was uncouth. 

I again never did eat another piece
And as days of my life started to increase
I did die and went to heaven one day
To see God and His pies He had on display.

His was surely much better than mine;
Now in heaven every time when I dine
I ask for God's great pie in the sky;
And "YOUR WELCOME" always is His reply.

being committed

Being Committed Written: by Tom Wright 1998 Lord, how can I a difference make? There are so many souls at stake. For Lord, you see that I'm but one, I'd work from dawn to setting sun. There’s so many things to see and do, I've no time left to work for you. When I am older, maybe then, But now there's pleasure in this sin. Involvement sure, at some later date, But now I'm young and it must wait. The great commission I understand, But me go Lord, to a foreign land? No friends or family there to see, Lord, it would be like you and me! You say that we a majority make, To think of all the souls at stake. You say I'm blind and cannot see? That some dear soul had time for me. I'd never thought of it that way, As with tear filled eyes I knelt to pray. A committed life will be my solemn vow, I'll work for You, Lord, show me how. For now it's clear what one can do, For sins atonement, it was just you.
