ONE HAIR HERE AND ONE HAIR THERE
We all get older and the body changes. Some put on weight; others get wrinkles; others get sagging muscles; some get ill, and some start to lose their hair. This poem is about the loss of hair and the expectation we will all be perfect one day.
20 SNIPPETS OF LIVING
The book of Proverbs has a lot of directions for living. I have put down my own that mean a lot to me, as reminders and warning. The 20 verses cover aspects in the Christian life in our walk for the Lord.
FOR MEN - THE THREE Fs
This is the third poem in the Trilogy Series. Part of that are 3 poems addressed to men. The purpose at the time was to address men but these poems can also be general and this one can apply to all Christians. The 3 Fs are to to be valued today.
This poem is a hymn I wrote during a Christian Easter Convention, not for the Convention. Its subject is the life of a Christian and how we live on this earth. Some details are given under the poem.
LORD, OPEN MY EYES
The bible can be read in two ways. The first is just as words forming a story, and the second is reading "into" the bible. The poem is a request for the Lord to open up the bible to see its treasures and insights.
WE ARE ON THE LAST PAGE OF THE CHURCH AGE
The world is a veneer hiding wickedness. We know where it is going – down. But we are going up. Christians are citizens of heaven, not earth. Man’s control is getting more chaotic. Fear not what evil men may do to us for hard time will come.
THE DEVIL SNAKE
The devil used the snake in Eden's garden to entice Eve and the snake was cursed because of that. It is thought the snake moved in an upright position before that happened. The poem deals with the snake and the greater Serpent who is Satan.
GATES OF HESITATION
This poem is developed from the story Jesus told about the wide and narrow gates, quoted under the poem. It can be used in outreach. I hope it is enjoyed. It is a poem about the gospel.
