One Choice to Make

The choice of one
To simply obey,
To show I believe
In what You say.
The blessings that flow
From one to another.
Favor inherited
From brother to brother.
The choice of one
To simply disobey,
To blatantly disregard
What You have to say.
Consequences that flow
From one to another.
Curses inherited
From brother to brother.
Choices we make
Can affect each other.
Blessings or consequences,
We pass to another.

Lingering Life

Petals from the flower
Fall to the ground.
Seeds of life
Lay all around.
The grass so tall
Sways in the wind
Praising the Savior
Again and again.
Clouds and sunshine
Play in the blue sky.
Will it rain on life,
Or lovingly pass by?
Wings flutter and flick
Before they come to rest.
Butterflies, birds, and bees
Comfy in their nest.
The cool breeze lingers.
The flowers dance.
Isn’t this where we began
When God gave us a chance?

Missing You In Ink

Lord, Lord, Lord,
How I miss You in ink.
Those sweet Holy whispers.
That playful encouraging wink.
Your Spirit flowing through
My pen swiftly obeying,
Sharing with other souls
What You are saying.
Where is that path
That once was clear?
I know I’m on the right one.
I feel You here.
I know You are my Light
Guiding my path.
I know You provide my needs
In all that I hath.
It’s just this trail
Seems to go so long.
I sometimes wonder
Can I go on?
Yet I know You’re here,
And You’re leading the way..
Help me to hang on
For that peaceful day.
