Jesus and Tea

cup of tea

Tea is like the Lord, so soothing and so sound.

It heats up all my insides and is fragrant going down.

Its deep, rich, amber color is so like the Throne of God

and the lights which spring forth from it in rotating thunder rods.

The leaves of tea bring healing just like the Tree of Life

and birth in me new energy, and grant me sleep at night.

Leaves brown and green mark new roads in humility and life.

A crown and ring God gives to me as His pearl of great price.

Yes, tea will ere remind me of what God has done for me,

and I will ere be grateful for their similarities.

A Genuine Love of Writing

TIRED TONIGHT, BUT STILL I WRITE

STILL I HAVE QUESTIONS, NORMAL SUGGESTIONS

STILL TURNING DARKNESS TO LIGHT.

BLURRY THE VISION AND THE DECISION
TO STAY UP AT NIGHT INSTEAD OF DELIGHT

IN SLEEPING ‘TIL NOON – FEEL LIKE A BUFFOON

‘CAUSE  THOUGH I’M EXHAUSTED,
AND SLIGHTLY DEFROSTED,

STILL ONWARD I FIGHT, ALL
THROUGH THE LONG NIGHT. . .

JUST SO I CAN WRITE.

just so I  can write. . .

Heaven is My Home

The world is not my
oyster,

nor is the world my
throne.

My heart rests in the things of
God

with thoughts of Him
alone.

Some people think I’m
crazy,

and some think I am
mean;

the truth is I’m in love with
God

because I’ve been
redeemed.

My purchase price is paid
for,

secured by His own
Blood;

My sins have all been wiped
away

with unconditional
love.

Hey! Don’t it make ya
curious

about the heart that
beats

inside the chest of
Abba

void of failing or
defeat?

I’m not concerned with this
world

nor the “things” it offers
me.

My treasure lies above these streets

where human eyes can’t
see.

I’m into God my
Father

and His forecasts
alone.

No, this world is not my
oyster

because HEAVEN
is my Home!

He is Faithful (a birthday poem)

God is with you wherever you go,
constantly watching so you’ll always know
that He realizes what you’re going through,
the thoughts you think, the things you do.

Christ is with you wherever you are;
He’s riding with you ‘shotgun’ in your car.
He’s blessing the good things, forgiving the bad,
and He’ll be your best friend or mother or dad
When you’re far away and no voice is near,
His voice lives inside you, my dear, NEVER FEAR.

Holy Spirit is with you to talk you straight through
the toughest exam, the stickiest goo
your emotions encounter – He’ll always be true.
He’ll always be gentle, and loving, and fair;
He’ll teach you and tender your heart to His care.

So know that your birthday’ll mark one more year
that God has been faithful to dry every tear.
He will remain faithful the rest of your life,
above and beyond all confusion and strife
He’ll love you and hold you in His Gentle arms,
and bless you and know you and keep you from harm.

He is Faithful!
(Deut. 7:9-10)
