Simon Peter finalist in poetry contest
Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!" John 13:38

Satan continues to harass us even after we are saved. He would love to destroy our witness to others and cause us to misuse our liberty. Be on guard that you do not allow fleshly weakness and Satan's lies to embarrass yourself before Christ.

When we let them see our weakness, only then can they truly see His power.

The Values We Hold second in poetry contest
Here, the author is lamenting the decline in our basic values.

Stay the Course
A 19th century ship captain sails the world, always secure in the knowledge that he is sailing within God's will.

Gethsemane finalist in poetry contest
Written 20 years ago, but still one of my faves. I think the lines ending with double syllables produce a breathless urgency, hurtling the story to its conclusion. After 20 years, I finally tweaked the final stanza that bothered me with extra syllables.

The Very Last Time
God's will or yours? Where is your focus?

Job 39 • Pinions and Plumage
The wings of the ostrich wave proudly, but are they the pinions and plumage of love? For she leaves her eggs to the earth and lets them be warmed on the ground, forgetting that a foot may crush them and that the wild beast may trample them. Job 39:13-15

External beauty is momentary. The lessons of life however can create an internal beauty that is eternal.
