Yes Friend, It Will Matter

Say not to me, that it will not matter a hundred years from now, that I was here. For surely I have touched one life in a positive way, perhaps in daily prayer I've called your name one day. Having no profound accomplishments or delusions of fame, and leaving no progeny to perpetuate my name, still, it will matter that I was here. For I have quietly endeavored to sow, and I have watered. I love and am loved--should one desire more? Life is good and hopefully God is pleased. The tracks I'll leave, it's true, will not be so ingrained as to stand harsh winds of time and they shall fade as the evening sun, leaving somewhere, only a name and date chiseled in granite. Perhaps, if only in thought, one pausing o'er me should question, who was this man? Let God simply whisper, that I am His.

My Prayer For Today

My Prayer For Today 7/22/2019 Written: by Miracle Man Lord, guard my tongue in things I say, Let your son Jesus be my light today. Let each of my thoughts rest solely on HIM, From the brightening hour until growing dim. Then at such time when I become tempted, Just render those thoughts, as preemptive. For I’ve little ability that’s of my own, And will be accountable for seeds I’ve sown. AMEN Selected Poem of The Day On Poetry Soup July 22, 2019

Thanksgiving and Thankful

Thanksgiving and Thankful Written: by Tom Wright My heart was burdened with much concern, For a person whom God placed in my path; While the rationality I did not easily discern, Obedience allowed me to escape His wrath. This assigned duty which was bestowed, To me alone, & 'twas from God conveyed. a friendship from this single act has flowed, From those incessant prayers once prayed.

Born Again

Written: by Miracle Man 9-5-2019 In stripling years, I existed in the shadows. God had given me reason, Of Satan to dispose. To change life’s direction, I felt suddenly impelled. But on my own, couldn’t break, Sin’s chains that held. Then at that moment, Scaled eyes could see. God had broken my chains, And unveiled a new me. Selected Poem Of The Day On 9-5-2019

Take Nothing For Granted

I deferred the words " I love you" Until the morrows light. Words, that from my heart, I felt impressed upon to say. For sure, "I love you", Would have best been said that night. Still I reserved ownership, For perhaps some abstinent day. Instead, from my vast reserve, Grating words were launched to flight. Words that once I'd spent, Could never be recanted. I had failed miserably, At living life in the moment. So, doting on another days sight, I had taken our time for granted. The next day's sun, I found, Rose not for both alike. Albiet the sky was blue and bright, My day was overcast. For from my life, I allowed to slip, a love untold, Now I'm forever yoked with regrets might, Hard and fast. Regret is felt always when it is too late.

Life's Race

Life's Race Written: by Tom Wright 9/8/98 Life, isn't like a relay, With participants off and on, Nor is it like a sprint or dash, But more of a marathon; Many start a race for Christ, But too soon tire and rest. While others, Spiritually out of shape, Will not put forth their best; In giving man His chosen, God accepts from man no less. For salvation is a know so thing, Not feelings or a guess. We must daily run, not tire or quit, When encountering one more hurdle. Life isn't start, sprint, and fade, But in finishing, Like the Turtle.

The Time of Youth

At love's first spark when in youth we were,
That crackle and snap of pine cones burning.
Aflame at first then as embers glowing,
Time has left us now, in thought, yearning.

The spark that was, has waned, not fizzled,
We still fit each other like hand and glove.
In our hearts there could have been no other,
God authored our one true lasting love.

Just celebrated 46 years

Tech Zombies

Tech Zombies Written: by Tom Wright 10-6-2016 Some have lost the ability to use their head, And depend on gadgets to get by instead. A Phone, Pod, or tablet now fills each hand, And in certain venues they should be banned. I’ve sat in church and observed others texting, And this, to me, has become quite perplexing. Distracted, I think, why even bother to come, As I muse, why this, they can’t refrain from. “Techies” can’t wait for Apple’s latest upgrade, While I sit thinking they’re just being played. Like sheep they stand in line at a local store, To be fleeced for a device they’ve fallen for; Technology has made our lives so much better, Giving us aspirations of being the pacesetter; Technology, now, is nearing an insane extreme, But an enormous boost to poor self esteem;

At Times, we all wear a mask

Are you one of life's many players?
Wearing a mask so others can't see;
Hiding feelings, won't let them show,
Absent from what reality might be.

Do you go through life supposing?
That you're the master of your life's all;
But when things in life are amiss,
It's then upon God you call.

Do you often reminisce things done?
Perhaps from a time when weak;
Because we've all worn this mask,
and of these things won't speak.

I've oft thought that I'm two people,
To most, my feelings I won't show.
The hurt that lies within,
I wear my mask so others won't know.
