The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations 31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy[c] angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his … More “As You Did it to The Least of These”
In the midst of a saffron reverie, my tissue paper dreams caught on fire! Blazing in hot red-orange bravery! Then scattered swirly- ash funeral pyre; Settled in an indigo mood unsavory; like a leaden December sky’s icy mire; Mourning rose colored art knavery, which only joy of pure hope sets afire! Sweet lavender prose mean … More Indigo Sorrow Saffron Joy
Emerald leaves full of life transformed into rubies and gold have all fallen; leaving bare, grey branches shivering in the wind. The cold hard ground connects with freezing air putting the atmosphere in deep freeze. Black storm clouds are building on every horizon, moving to meet overhead and collide in an epic storm, like no … More The Refuge
Father, thank you for allowing the darkness in my life So, I might recognize Your Son Jesus as the true Light! Revealing the evil works that fill the world with strife; Daddy, thank you! For rescuing me from evil’s night! Your Son died for me and translated my death to life! Father, thank you … More Give Thanks in all Things!

Precipitate an illusion, from the mists of imagination; Foggy machinations, finely tempered to rhyme, It is Art! An oft repeated thought given new reflection, Meaning locked inside, released in perfect time! Artists are mad-men, leading thought in a new direction; Tantalizing! Light then dark, bordering on crime! Meanderings in crimson, trimmed with lacey perfection; Word … More Joyful Machination
Tired thoughts; scattered dust drifting in the air; Denied a refuge from life’s ragged edge; White knuckled in the now; possibilities nowhere! Time’s pounding beat battering sledge; Constant pain; relentless torturer doesn’t care! Relationship split by prideful wedge; Everyone’s looking for something! Life isn’t fair! Confusion leaves truth on sanity’s edge; Stress and exhaustion coupled; … More Joy on the Ragged Edge
I am war-weary, in need of a furlough, and awaiting an honorable discharge. I am battle-hardened but this war is long; it has been raging for centuries, filling the earth with blood. My enemy is a deceptive predator who sometimes, weakens me by sneaking into my thoughts. You see, I once fought on his side, … More Joy Waits on God
God watches over His children and fights against those who try to destroy us.
