A CROSS OF SHAME

As daylight fades into twilight shades,

Coolish the breeze now grows!

Summer is passing as fall now nearing,

But back east winter shows!

.

.

Our sunny climb though seems like forever,

Nearly never the rain!

Snow?  Only in the mountains yonder!

Mornings a bit frosty, no pain!

.

.

Does God gaze down at us disappointed?

Show no thankfulness ever!

Stroll as though we alone are important

Praise Him for blessing?  Never!

.

.

Or even pray for the snowbound back east,

Or enter the picture somehow,

By sharing or praying just a thought.

Or not even a thought allow?

.

.

Unthankful, unholy, the verdict comes home

With only a form processed.

Form of godliness denying the power

Or seeming like but repressed!

.

.

Will God show His hand when we react,

What can I do except pray?

Then do it!  Start now with all your heart!

Do not put it off another day!

.

.

Prayer changes things, people, too!

Grateful heart a giving heart.

Thankful for what God gives we give,

And this is just a part!

.

.

God wants your heart!  Your life, do not you see?

If He has you, what you possess

Belongs to Him, without equivocation

I have given all, I confess.

.

.

And what is that but a paltry bit,

As if I had anything.

He gave His life on a cross of shame!

To what do I then cling?

.

.

the paltry Sam, confessing

Date-wise; who cares?

Oh, well, okay date-wise 2nd last day in November 2012
