QUIET JOY

Quivers and qualms of earthly life recede

Under heaven’s high vaulting canopy.

Instilled peace into the mind and heart

(which the Savior does impart).

Edging deeply into a once disquieting soul

Tender sweet grace and how so merciful!

Jesus ever present, ever near:

Oh! For a hushed interlude in which to hear.

Yearnings of the past and unfilled dreams

Satisfied in faithful hope and belief.

Why should my Heart be full of Cheer?

As I gazed at a fluorescent blue sky

Where no stormy clouds appeared

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

Twas a silent blustery wind but dry

And no wafting sounds could I hear

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

No birds to witness nor bee or fly;

Also, no ominous foreboding to fear

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I then began to wonder why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at a fluorescent blue sky.

While my eyes upward climbed

Into that lofty, arid atmosphere

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I continued to contemplate why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

This day was bitter cold and dry

As expected this wintry time of year

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

Draped in the cold sunlight

I stood on the land, frozen and bare,

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

Banks of snow, gleaming white

Still remain here and there

As the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I pondered and wondered why

My heart should be full cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

A cold chill crept up my spine

Thanks to the frigid weather

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

With a start, I suddenly knew why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky:

I realized my Lord and Savior is why

for he promises to always stay near

As I gazed and gazed at the fluorescent blue sky

And the orbed glowing sun had journeyed high.

FOCUSED HEART

015

Futuristic and hopeful vision

Of our eternal home in heaven.

Centered life upon our savior Jesus;

Unselifishly, he died to save us.

Seeds of new life and peace from above

Entered and sprinkled our inner souls with love.

Delivered and planted by our Lord.

Harvested in faith by believing His Word.

Every day we can pray, worship, and celebrate

At the amazing glory of his saving grace.

Rescued and redeemed to live with him forever

Today, tomorrow, and ever after.

The Christmas Tree

Although late, I still want to share a new Christmas poem. I hope everyone who is reading this has had a wonderful and blessed Christmas:

Carefully placed and standing where all can see

Heralding angel poised above the pine needle green.

Rows of colorful lights brighten the scene

Infused and trimmed by love unseen.

Stars, snowflakes, and bulbs adorn the limbs

Trustfully reminding us of him and the

Manger scene where he was born;

Arriving long ago on Christmas morn.

Shepherds heard and flocked to see the sight;

Taught by angels who appeared in a great light.

Remembering and honoring many years later

Eventual arrival of the Lord Jesus, our Savior;

Everlasting King who will rule forever and ever.

SIMPLY TRUST

014

Steadfast and sincere belief

In Almighty God and his Son Jesus.

Mindful and obedient to His true and holy word;

Personally accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord.

Living each day in joyfulness and not sorrow;

Yesterday’s tears washed away by hope for tomorrow.

Tenderness and kindness shown to everyone I see;

Remembering God’s never ending love shown to me.

Unwavering faith in the goal of reaching heaven.

Serving gladly and sharing about Him.

Teachable soul continuing to depend on Jesus

by praying and  being led daily by his Holy Spirit.

Ode to Jesus my Savior on this New Day

021

Ode to Jesus my Savior on this bright new day,

A new morning of hope beneath a glorious sun.

While earth is gently touched by its’ gleaming rays

As a sign that God desires to kindly bless everyone.

For beneath the rising sun’s fair brilliance and warmth,

We can reach out to grasp and hold onto everlasting hope.

As when we’re kept warm in a frigid winter near a fireside hearth,

We live in peace and safety under the eyes of God’s watchful scope.

Because within the Lord’s provision, his loving plan,

He devised the only way to perfectly save

The sinful and often hurting man

Through his own Son Jesus whose life on the cross he gave.

Now with the unquenchable hope of a never ending tomorrow,

We can live today free of pain, oppressing fear, and lasting sorrow.
