ANCIENT HISTORY

In Angels, God on April 13, 2014 at 2:53 pm

Moon walkers have been there,

Green cheese is out!

Even weighed down it is

Hard to get about!

 

 

Feel light as a feather!

Could jump over the where?

Already on the moon!

Yes, how did I get there?

 

 

Neil Armstrong can tell you!

Just what to expect!

He has been there! Has done that,

Dependably correct!

 

 

Moon is not much to look at,

Does not throw a lot of light.

Try walking in the country

Though on a moonless night!

 

 

Touch your nose with your finger,

Cannot see that hand at all!

Once you have run out of street lights

Better watch where you fall!

 

 

You feel gravel with your left foot

Grass with you right!

You left bed bugs in that hotel

Now, pitch black the night!

 

 

I do not care where I am heading,

Just leave that buggy place!

Just shiver as consider

The millions on my face!

 

 

No moon and destination

Just nose pointing West!

The only road leaving bugs,

So guess that was best!

 

 

Lost! You ever been there?

Course not! Safe at home!

Hitch hiking not civilized,

Black staggering alone!

 

 

Black that it was, nothing at all!

Minutes seemed like hours,

Finally caved in, I prayed!

As pitch blackness devours.

 

 

Then lights, a black angel in a

Black Buick, it is a ride!

Picks me up, soon fall asleep!

Cozy inside!

 

 

Destination, who cares?

One stop, Heaven bound!

Angel gave me money!

God’s eyes on this clown!

 

 

Now wondering days are over,

Paratroops then pulpit!

90 years of being led by

Angels! Cannot beat it!

GOD’S FINGERS WORKING

In Angels, God, Grace, Heaven, Jesus, Pray on April 6, 2014 at 3:08 pm

“…Consider Thy Heavens, the works of Thy fingers…”

I think, “What is man that you care?”

“What is man that You are mindful of him…”

Or with him the breath of life share?

 

 

To die for what is that all about?

He loves us so died for us!

Need to consider the price He paid!

For Disciples created from dust.

 

 

Tax collector, fisherman, and Judas,

Did He die for Judas, too?

Did He not die for sinners all?

In dying He died for you!

 

 

Have you doubted, denied, or betrayed?

Have you scoffed in Jesus’ face?

He was nailed for that scout who tried to help me.

Is he included in Grace?

 

 

He died for that foolish 16 year youngman

We all knew him then as Mitch.

He had already dodged bullets two years or more,

Lied to mix in this hitch.

 

 

Had a stubborn streak I had yelled, “Get down!”

He did not! Took one between the eyes!

I had helplessly watched his twitching hand (1)

Did God hear his dying cries?

 

 

Month or so later another good man

Had tried drinking to forget.

Was climbing this hill to help me out,

Was my God observing yet?

 

 

He then took a shot between the eyes!

I tore down that hill to give aid!

I nearly got sick as I saw that still form,

He died there even as I prayed!

 

 

Did God see him there? Is he Home now?

Fifty plus years have gone by

I live, He died. Does God see us all?

He loves, we cannot deny!

 

 

Does God remember? I cannot forget!

In every conflict, God shared!

I only fought in that one long ago!

God fought in all, He cared!

 

 

As despicable as it may turn out,

For six months I did not bathe.

For half a year I lived on beef bullion!

For six months I did not shave!

 

 

Did God care about any of this?

“The Angel of God encamps…” (2)

God sends those Angels, of course He cares!

“Through evening dews and damps…” (3)

 

 

(1) Lieutenant ordered me down, “Now leave him!”

(2) Psalm 34:7

(3) From the “Battle Hymn of the Republic”

THANKFUL

In Bible, God, Grace, Jesus, Lord on April 5, 2014 at 7:16 pm

Thankful, so grateful we are for our home,

And home away from just never alone.

For loved ones who care and for friends galore.

Never a want a need anymore!

 

 

Fire that drove us our of our lair,

Loved ones compassionate always there!

Giving us comfort, shelter, and food.

We praise Him forever! God is so good!

 

 

Soon back to our home appreciatively!

Though surrounded by fires survived safely!

Black smoke overhead a blanket so strange

Colors all about a complete rearrange!

 

 

Houses about us appearances as of fire,

Queer coloration all not to desire!

Strange feeling about us, just made us know

Hell not desired! Not the place to go!

 

 

Church the compassion one feels in that place!

Each one for another this moment of Grace!

Yorba Linda protected miraculously!

Believers live there, like, divine decree!

 

 

Our Father above who cares for us all

Who guides us protects us lest we fall!

Our hearts reach out to those who lost homes

Their loss is grievous and they are not alone!

 

 

Jesus had no home on earth for three years

He slept on hard ground it received His tears!

Tears for others, Jerusalem, Galilee,

He is weeping still for souls that will not see!

 

 

The Bible gives us a road map to guide,

No other book as important beside

This book that is hidden beneath a pile

Of novels, magazines not worth your while.

 

 

Bibles destroyed by fire soon replaced!

To Whom do we turn for living Grace?

Gods’ Word became flesh, some have received

Those who trusted in Him and believed!

 

 

So why on earth am I on this earth?

And why was I ever given New Birth?

“Let your light so shine,” is the Lord’s acclaim!

For this very purpose, He did us ordain!
