Beloved, lovely roses: gift of God and lover’s flower,
Spread your colored petals and cradle tender showers.
While admiring the blossoms with their beauty to behold,
Ought we not to know the Tender of such lovely garden groves?

For He lovingly and thoughtfully wields His pruning shears
To cut away the stems of old for fuller future years.
He cultivates and feeds them. He attends them as a Father
Looking daily to their needs; so faithfully He waters.

From the dawn of morning dew until the setting sun arrays
Caring always for His own until that great appointed day…
When the Gardener comes to claim each one the earth held as its own.
He gently picks it at its peak and for His pleasure takes it home.

As God did one glorious morning, when the Perfect Rose had bloomed.
He rolled away the stone and met with Mary at the tomb.
There the sweetest Rose of Sharon rose that we die not alone.
But be gathered for a garden grove, surrounding heavens throne.

Quite frankly, I don't remember at all
You see I was quite young when I took my first fall.
Don't know which parent was there to catch me
Or how hard the decision was to stand back and let me. 
Did I topple forward or backward, or who made the call. 
And who scooped me up crying
After the fall.
I can't remember the joy of first letting go
And taking that step without holding on. 
Groping my way forward
Leaning against the wall
I got back up 
After the fall.
As the Earth spun the years flew by so fast
At 17 I finally knew everything at last!!
Unexpectedly, I fell once again,
Head over heels this time 
And out on a limb.
I was so sure of that bet
I gambled it all
Heart bruised abused and then broken
After that fall.
And then I broke my own promise 
To not love again.
Hungry for life
I gambled to win.
Life is a theatre of first steps first 
A one act play with no time to rehearse.
Co starring in roles
Cast without planning.
"Never more" echoes 
The raven still chanting.
Undaunted unwilling
To let darkness win all
Trusting Father to be there
After the fall.
Then the day came
When I had a son
To let him learn the word hot And hope he'd not run,
Would he still love me
Or trust me at all
When I pulled my hand back
And allowed him to fall?
And knowing I'd be there again
To help him to stand
And knowing he might never walk
If I didn't let go of his hand
And hoping he didn't revert back to a crawl
When I let go of his hand
And allowed him to fall.
As the earth kept on turning
My heart kept yearning
My son now a man
Living and learning.
He hasn't held my hand now in a very long time
The cats in the cradle slowly plays in the back of my mind.
I looked in the mirror today
And noticed my dad.
And remembered a talk that we'd never had.
Remembering how he seemed towering and tall 
And was there every time 
After each fall.
I lose my balance these days now and again
My steps aren't as sure
As they once might have been. 
In the winter of life now
I feel so small
And wonder who'll catch me
If I take a fall. 
I suppose I'll just have to trust Father
With both great things and small 
To pick me up on the other side
When I take my last fall.

Read the Bible and the words that are said. Times of trouble and tribulation are ahead! All one has to do is read the book of revelation. To read about this world and this nation! Days of wickedness and evil that abounds.. Shall very soon. Come “crashing to the ground!” For our sin, there’s a price that has been paid! Many have become sin’s servant and slave! Many will not escape God’s judgment and wrath! They’ve chosen the wrong direction and path! Right now... There’s a path and a way to “escape!” Please do it right now! Before it’s too late! The right path to take, is through Christ alone! He must be the lord of your heart and home! Jesus alone, can bring hope to your soul! He’ll never leave you! Is what he wants you to know! Times of trouble and uncertainty are well on their way! Christ can help you to overcome! He can do it TODAY! By Jim Pemberton

Read the Grahams and Templetons.
Sifted the Calvinists and Arminians.
Tried to qualify the Mortals and Venials.
John’s comfort was lost in Hebrew’s six.

I got the faith and conviction in
The Holy Ghost and Christ the Son.
Been given clear skies and sight,
but pre-meditated sins still done.

Eternal security for some so easy,
seems wide steps on a narrow way.
Deceit often more subtle than
Branch Davidians and jungle Kool-Aid.

This - A Seed of fear?
Carried by the winds of Mount Azazel, 
watered by fallen whispers in my ear?
Or taking no heed, a fool plays with sin?

Don’t want to wake up under the wrong Throne,
Just think about the ‘few there be that find it’,
Intermittent obedience and lukewarms thrown.
Always, the fear of this, has been with me.

A full moon night to my delight what is so wrong with doing what's right nothing is right after so long no use in complaining time to move on The Dream Water one day might take me away farther from the comfort of familiarity I float on my back then shut my eyes my body now sinking into ocean arms open wide Now swallow your son back to his nature when he is no longer needed to stay here the next generation are dooming themselves they need my experience to guide them through hell Why should I bother on my own, I strive through I turn my back on the thought of bothering to save you alone in this world my, is it spacious I'm finally smiling, never so gracious.

It  was  for you and me,
That Jesus left His throne,
Bore the scourge and agony,
Shivered His flesh and bone,

It was for you and me,
He took the awry tour,
Towards the dreaded Calvary,
Summed His tortured  hours,

It was for you and me,
That Jesus bore the cross,
Paid the greatest penalty,
That death supposed be ours,

It was for you and me,
He wailed the gloomiest cry,
It was for you and me,
Jesus was nailed to die,

Oh, that you and I may see,
Our wickedness beyond measure,
Jesus to set us free,
In our stead bore the torture,

His love mysterious great,
Knocks  the door of all men's heart,
His mighty power recreates,
Renews our lives whole to restart,

It was for you and me,
When on the third-day death sufficed,
The savior left His grave,
Victorious he arised,

He rose back to His throne,
Sitting by His Father's side,
Prepare! He's coming soon,
Today is to decide,

I studied your Word with care, 
and you wrote my name up there.
I knelt before You in love, 
and You lifted me up like a dove. 
I gave this short life that belonged to me, 
and You gave me a perfect eternity.
You rose from your tomb,
So we could forever bloom.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.  -John 11:25-26

The truth of the matter is that the “I doubt it” label has always been assigned to me; but in reality, I and all the Apostles doubted.

Hopeless, fear, and doomed were the highly charged emotions that we all felt.

Over and over, he taught us about his resurrection; but we did not understand.

Multitudes were fed; mighty miracles were performed; but no one could help him.

After his death, we were in hiding, because we thought that we would be next.
But absolutely everything changed when at

Sunrise, the world’s greatest surprise arose, and lit up the skies of our frightened hearts!

Lies from the pit of HELL!

    The Devil is the father of all Lies
He is subtle and devious
He is cruel and merciless
He is daring and bold
He is selfish and cold

He knows what we want to hear
He likes to whisper in our ear
He tells us we will be fine
He seems to be oh so kind

He wants our soul
He wants it whole
He’ll take our life
With a silver knife

Trust the Sly Devil
At your own peril
Promises of power, fortune and fame
Just roll the dice and play the game
He’ll tell you there’s nothing to lose
Pills, Crack, Pot or Booze
You’ll have it all!
Till last call!
And HE’LL be laughing 
As he watches you fall

The cruel lie of addiction is that we are fooled into thinking our wants are really our needs. The disease wreaks havoc on our minds and our bodies and even our souls. We will lie, cheat and steal for another fix, not caring who we hurt. Most notably, we are lying and hurting ourselves much more than the people who love us.

                 If I die tomorrow did I do enough. 
            That is the question I keep asking myself..

          Did I fight the good fight, did I give it my all.
      Did I fight for the ones who had less or were small..

       Did I make the Lord proud for the talents he gave.
         Did I put them to use Did I give him the praise..

         Oh Please tell me Lord for the answers I crave,
        or are these the questions I'll take to my grave..

It’s because of Jesus, that I’m here today!
I will serve him!  All of my days!

It’s because of his mercy, 
and love so sweet…
That I can lay all of my worries
 at his feet!

It’s because of the times
 he’s helped me…
He did this, because
 he loves me!

It’s because of his firm and guiding hand…
Everything I go through…  
He understands!

It’s because of all this and so much more…
It’s him that I praise, 
worship and adore!

This same Jesus is also here to YOU!
Won’t you receive him? 
 What will you do?

For What And Why?
By Curtis Johnson

So many people, searching for the elusive.
So many worries, and loss of sleep.                                                              So many doubts about the future world.
So many fears about things we don’t control.

Our days are numbered, there is no doubt.
Why not pause and figure things out?
Or stop to see what it’s all about?

We take meds that will never heal.
We shut our ears to words of steel;
Words that have stood the test of time.
Ways tried and true are in deep decline.

From a world of eye to eye contact,
Via social media, we evacuate.
Why not ‘face to face’, to communicate?
Why not “toe to toe”, simply to evaluate?
We give little time to think and meditate.
For every ache and pain, we medicate.

So little quality, and so much waste.
So little love, and  so little time to wait.

So little hunger for being the very best.
We rather cheat than pass an honest test.

So much thirst for things material.
So much consumption of so much stuff.
Such things will someday consume all of us.

So little time to fix what’s wrong.
We are too timid  to stand alone;                                                               Too tired and weak to be strong.

We fill our hands with papers of sand,
Whose value will never meet demand.

We hate to be told, that we are not bold;                              ……………………   that our hearts are stone and freezing cold.                                                   

Our days are hard, and our nights are long.
We race and rush to places we don’t belong.
We long for a love that we have never known.
We reach our end, seeking warmth like newborns.
And  God?  He’s always there, waiting on His throne.

Through my injustices 
it has given me an insight 
one I never had before 

These are the words written down 
as the pen is mightier and exposes a soul 
by Gutle Schnapper Rothschild 
if my sons did not want wars 
there would be none 

These elitists are parts of a spine forming
on the snakes back they are slimy toads 
without emotions or feelings 

They are wizards 
part of a circle who claim rights 
to the skull and crossbones of Adam
dark magic your seed is from hell 

From the ashes of fire you will smother 
tortured empty spirits forgotten void 
your soul is empty of loving peace

There before me was the cross
Where Christ was crucified
He gave his life on Calvary
So we could live in paradise

Tears began to roll down my face
In my life, I'd made many mistakes
There that day He'd taken my place
He forgave me, my sins He did take

They were washed away by His blood 
He shed for me that very day
There they took Him to the tomb
Three days later, stone rolled away

He had risen from the grave
No longer in hell enslaved
Went back to heaven to be
Waiting for you and me

Death always wins the struggle at the end
Despair without delay then comes unbend
Depress the mind that often would extend
Discourage hearts when all our strength we spend
Despite of this we seldom condescend 
Defeat to that which we cannot contend
Defend ourselves from whom we must depend
Disproves to us that death is not our friend
Deserted grave lay open that was lend
Dark emptiness three days that need expend
Due to the Lord of life the cave did rend
Delivers hope to all that he would send
Delightful day when heaven’s Lord descends!
Death’s reign ends when our soul to Christ commend

Went to go see my love
who passed years ago
Sitting on the family bench
Under the shade of the tree
Remembering our life
The years of happiness
It always brings tears
to the eyes to think of this
Wish you were still with me
as all these years fly by
I try not to grieve
because one day I know
I will see you again in
