THE YEAR OF THE LORD

Adam and Eve in the Garden, yes, they did surely die!

True, they lived on for centuries, that in the Eternal eye,

.

Was a mere drop in a bucket; it was not even a day. (*)

The Bible says that a thousand years, in God’s sight, is but a day!

.

Man would have lived on forever!  One grain of sand by the sea

Could never begin to measure up or fit the analogy!

.

Infinity is the measure of space, space that has no end.

Just as eternity goes on and on and is hard to comprehend!

.

The angels are not eternal for they were created, too.

The angels are everlasting just the same as me and you!

.

Yes, man will live forever and where?  That depends on his aim!

If he cares not about heaven his future?  Oh, what a shame!

.

The Godhead, blessed Trinity, the matchless Three in One

Cooperated together and the universe was begun!

.

Yes, begun, for creation continues a world that has no end!

Can man confine the Eternal?  No, he will neither break or bend.

.

Who cannot confine the Eternal?  Do not you know He died long ago?

When God dies, we die too.  Who keeps us going?  Surely you know!

.

Our Eternal God, in infinity, impossible to trace!

So what really does keep us spinning?  Only His love and grace!

.

Consider the brain, so intricate, only God’s love could inspire!

Our brain is a miniscule fraction yet we presume to conspire!

.

Give up?  Nothing like this could evolve or start from whatever they say.

The suns, worlds in perfect control through time, like, night and day!

.

Now a glance at division of time, was God involved in this too?

Before Christ and after, Anno Domini, infinite and true! (**)

IS THERE HOPE

Adam and Eve in the Garden, yes, they did surely die.

True, they lived on for centuries but in the eternal eye

.

Was a mere drop in a bucket it was not even a day. (1)

For while, “As a day is as a thousand years,” (2) a thousand years but a day!

.

Man would have lived on eternally!  One grain of sand by the sea

Could never begin to measure up or fit the analogy.

.

For infinity is the measure of space that has no bounds or end!

Just as eternity continues on!  It is hard to comprehend!

.

The angels are not eternal for they were created, too!

The angels are everlasting just the same as me and you!

.

Yes, man will live forever and where depends on his aim!

If he cares not about Heaven, his future?  Oh, what a shame!

.

The Godhead, the blessed Trinity, the matchless three in One,

Cooperated, conspired, and the universe was begun!

.

Yes, begun for creation continues!  It is a world without end!

Can man confine the eternal?  He will neither break nor bend!

.

Why cannot we confine the eternal?  When we claim He died long ago,

If God dies we die, too.  Who keeps us spinning?  Do not you know?

.

I am sorry you gave in so easily.  I would love to argue His case!

So what really does keep us spinning?  Only His love and grace!

.

Consider the brain, so intricate, only God’s love could conspire.

And what or who keeps the heart pumping blood?  The wind?  The fire?

.

Give up!  Nothing like this could evolve or start from whatever they say

The sun, the worlds in perfect control through time, like, night and day!

.

Another thing, division of time was not God involved in this?

Before Christ and after (3) so why not cease and desist!

.

.

(1) 2 Peter 3:8

(2) In God’s eyes

(3) Before Christ and A.D. (Anno Domini) the Year of The Lord

FROM SPHERE TO SHINING SPHERE

Constellations, galaxies, the universe explore!

The speed of thought takes me there a planet I deplore!

Five other saints accompany me, like angels, we are as one.

We get together comparing notes when the day is done.

.

.

But do not doze while others sleep we wander through each camp.

Deplorable conditions one can feel the grass is damp.

What to do, we have got to show them somehow how to live!

Babies cry, we have got to teach them what the ground can give!

.

.

One angel dives, puts a kerchief on a baby’s nose.

Mother stares then takes the cloth to stop the sinus flow.

She looks around a blanket settles on the two of them.

Mother sighs, she wonders where?  But she does not contend.

.

.

Seeds they scatter everywhere fruit trees all around.

Some of the fruit is edible which everywhere abound!

Fruit they gather place beside the snoring companies.

Fruit is found, taste, compare with the growing trees.

.

.

Trees are nurtured, seeds are planted where ever space is found.

An angel dropped a tissue and a blanket on the ground.

Another one had spread some seeds, the growth was garden greens.

“I think the life span here has stretched to fifty,” so it seems.

.

.

Perhaps our job here is done for now.  Should we return and see?

I miss God’s loving smile.  Yes, let us see what it will be.

What?  Oh project!  Yes, perhaps some realm out there will requires

Our expertise, like, growing things new life to inspire!

.

.

So life goes on eternally from sphere to shining sphere.

YOU ARE MY FRIENDS *

The creator and sustainer of our universe

He is the bright and morning star.

He is with me in blessing and fellowship right here!

Yet He ministers to others afar!

.

.

He is lauded and worshipped by millions in heaven!

Yet He gives Himself to us now, here!

He created the universe with a rare thought,

And still He abides with me near.

.

.

He is still creating out there in infinity!

Yet you can feel His presence right now!

He shatters the clouds with thunders in the heavens

And still we are no stiff, we will not bow.

.

.

Bow down to Him now!  He is worthy of praise!

We cower under “acts of God”

Repetitiously sing about our awesome God!

Do not you know He is the only God?

.

.

There is no other God under heaven or above.

“I am the master of my fate?”

Sure you are and yet when we come to the end

We do not want to share Satan’s fate!

.

.

Listen up!  We matter to our God of love!

He created worlds without end!

So easily He keeps universal order

And He still wants to be your friend!

.
