AMEN

April 19, 2019

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

1 Corinthians 15:20-22 NIV


His Fix-It Shop For the Heart – A Tanka

It is pouring rain.

Here I sit in hope not felt

Yet I still believe.

I have not placed my fingers

In the holes . . . yet He filled mine.

NAILS – An Acrostic

March 13, 2019

Never had a tree so touched my heart.

Acorns, bark, leaves to rake.

It was so ordinary, almost invisible.

Lent’s reminder of my Savior’s love – His blood. . . 

Somehow the tree wasn’t just a tree anymore.

WERE YOU THERE TOO?

nailed

 

I can STILL hear His footsteps as He dragged the heavy, rough cross along a seemingly  endless path . . . sweat and blood dripping . . .  knowing what was to come . . .and He did it for me.

They gave Him bitter wine to drink

and He took it

so that we might have

that which was sweet.

dampened grass between my toes
