HEAVEN II

In Christ, Heaven on October 29, 2014 at 6:35 pm

Never give up!  Keep striving

To do what you must do!

It is a necessary evil,

For you to strive, but it is true.

.

.

We fret, we fight, we worry so

It is so hard to get around!

We may sometimes feel like flying,

But our feet stay on the ground!

.

.

We need Christ’s words of wisdom

Words folk heard so long ago.

They thronged about Him everywhere

His love and grace to know!

.

.

His deeds, His miracles drew them,

His compassion, His acts of love.

Yes, He truly was love, was, is

Now in heaven above!

.

.

He is still the same today, you know.

No?  Maybe we really do not (*)

Recognize we have doctors today.

We trust God or we do not!

.

.

We do trust doctors anyhow,

An educated guess.

God made us!  We do not trust Him?

The problem I confess!

.

.

I know He will take me to heaven

When my time has come to die!

Transcendent beauty!  Glorious!

We gaze transfixed we sigh!

.

.

I will not aid the process

Of dying, this I know,

But for certain I will not fight it.

I will wait until He says go.

.

.

Not go but come.  Do not forget

“We will meet Him in the air.”

Protracted illness?  Worry not!

Where will be no illness there!

.

.

And colors?  Such splendid beauty!

With variegated hues (**)

Of roses, I see every day!

But in heaven, that is old news.

.

.

(*) Of course I trust doctors, most of them, but who is the Great Physician?

(**) Every day my neighbors rose garden.

FEARFUL AND WONDERFUL

In Creator, God, Heaven on October 28, 2014 at 7:58 pm

Our God is an intimate God.

Loves you wherever you are!

He honors your space, will not interfere!

He watches you from afar!

.

.

But close up is so much better than

Staying so far away!

He wants to be close enough to inquire

“Are you having a nice day?”

.

.

Just why do you suppose He created us?

Make fun of our stumbling around?

He cares, you know, He really does!

As our cheering section sounds!

.

.

Cheering me on!  Will not flag me down!

He knows what is good for me!

Never will He discourage you.

He is a loving God, you see!

.

.

He is fearful, yes!  To those who destroy,

And refuse to follow His ways.

Heaven is not prepared for their ilk

They themselves have numbered their days!

MY HOME IS HEAVEN

In God, Heaven on October 27, 2014 at 8:30 pm

Poems produced by fools like me

But only God can make a tree.

Roots, limbs, leaves of many kinds

Variety to blow your minds!

.

.

Some bear fruit while others give shade.

Some reach the ground with weeping cascades.

Some are small bear fruit one can reach,

Like those bearing plums, cherries, or peach.

.

.

I know God delights in variety!

Is there nothing new for us to see?

When Solomon said, “There is nothing new,”

Suppose he was blinded by mountain dew?

.

.

It is new every morning, each plant and flower,

That timid bud that seems to cower

Beneath the foliage as if to hide

From prying eyes, their beauty to bide.

.

.

I see a small lizard, it streaks away.

It is smart, it may see another day.

A black bird swoops, small snake in its claw,

Wriggling like crazy, but it is too late now.

.

.

A city it seems, though peaceful and quiet.

No robberies to fear, no fights or riots,

Moved all my life, 10 places or more.

Fine place to stay before Heaven’s shore.

.

.

Thank God for this place!  May not be new,

Snakes, rabbits, lizards resembling a zoo.

A small zoo, I call my final home

Before I reach Heaven, no longer to roam!

.
