THE TEMPTATION

The temptation may strike a low blow at times

More often, a bit higher up

The figure face, sure, a whistle-stop.

Hold it, had enough!

.

.

But not very easy to do, you know,

Normalcy has its place!

“Woman needs man and man must have

His mate.”  Subject of grace!

.

.

Telepathy spiritual or not

A fixation, put it on hold

Many mistakes have been made right here!

Too young, too soon, too bold!

.

.

Put God first!  Knows best, assuredly!

Some Old Testament hero’s thought

Otherwise!  Examples not to follow!

Consider what most of them bought.

.

.

Troubles on troubles, Solomon few

Vanity of vanities all

All those concubines, sure, one way too many

Now one is the right, the call.

.

.

To singleness of purpose!  Paul’s advice

In essence to serve the Lord!

When serving the Lord together find,

Companionship in accord!

.

.

Sad separations so many today!

Divorce Courts tell the tale!

For sixty years we have looked after each other,

Sure, far better than email.

.

.

God put her hand in mine, long ago

Both thought, “How sweet it is!”

Kids, grandchildren and great-grand’s, too,

Following God’s way in bliss!

.

.

What else is there, as if I forgot,

“I go to prepare a place!”

Only God knows the bliss I will share

With millions, to look on His face!

.

.

But meanwhile, my cathedral, aka my room,

Where I love God through my poems

Grandchildren, a picture taken long time ago,

Looking up, I see just forms!

.

.

Their souls, spirits, someday I will see

In that Grand Place above

All together and forever, I want to see

All lost in our Savior’s love!

.
