New Acrostic Poem

 


 Golden Years                                                             

                                      

Gone are the days of youth
Onto the next season we now face 
Lonely can sometimes become truth 
Determining where in life one's place
Eliminating that stress in making smooth
Now in this season, one does embrace

 

Years gone by the past has erase
Ever so close to the Gospel truth
Aligning one's self to the original birthplace
Remembering God gave life in-truth 
Seniors we are, now loving life in grace

Poem preview from "Growing Strong in The Lord" Part One

 Hi Guys,

Still working on Part two of "My Faves" two part collection books while still getting settled into my new place. However, here a poem from  part one of "My Faves"; that is from the Growing Strong in The Lord collection. This poem truly is one of my favorites as it reminds me to always seek God's word in the busyness of my day. Even now as I work at my job while getting settled into my new place, the guidance of His word helps give me the strength I need to keep pushing forward. 


The Owner’s Manual

 

The manufactures where inspired in spirit

As the owner dictated its creation

Its words express life as explicit

 

Without it one’s life has its limit

A manual given for duration

The manufacturers where inspired in spirit

 

In reading, spiritual growth shows its merit

Knowledge becomes the standing foundation

Its words express life explicit

 

Guidance its gives when life it’s severest

When applied prevents one of damnation

The manufacturers where inspired in spirit

 

God, the owner, His manual inherit

Ours He gave in narration

Its words express life as explicit

 

The Bible a manual given implicit

The Owner provided for us a relation

The manufacturers where inspired in spirit

Its words express life explicit

-To operate in life with supplication

-Read, The Owner’s Manual

 

 

Thoughts: I get busy with everyday life that I forget to feed my soul with God’s words. But, have noticed when I do read the Bible at least every day, especially steady for several days straight, that everyday life is easier and I am happier; even, when it’s not my average everyday struggle and things take a turn for the worst. That even in these challenging times, when filling my soul with His words, life is happier and easier.



Thanks for your patience!

 Hi guys,

Please bear with me in my effort of part two of the My Faves collection. It’s taking a bit more time than I had anticipated, mainly due my recent move. Am still getting settled into my new place and still have much to do in dealing with my move and working while doing so that has left little time for my writing efforts.

Additionally, my memoirs book project is a much bigger project than I originally anticipated, as well. Not sure, at this moment, when that huge project will be completed. But, I promise it will be well worth the wait as I continue to wait on events I know need to happen. One already has, as God had blessed me with my “all to myself” new place of living. How that blessing event happened will be included in my memoirs book. 

Meanwhile, once I get a bit more settled into my new place, I promise ink to paper will once again be back in full swing.

Thank you my wonderful audience for your patience.

God bless.

DE

New Poem

 


You Did

My stress in this season You did rid
How can I not, not be devoted
When no one else came to my aid, You did

For to my soul satan put in a bid
As he thought he had won the vote
In my stress in this season You did rid

It was easy to stay with You for good
As in the light to my soul You promoted  
When no one else came to my aid, You did

You my Lord showed me love does exist
When to this I thought I had lost out
And now to Your love I can't resist

As You showed me what love is all about
In Your loving care I found my way
Giving my soul great reason to shout 

When no one else to love did display
The stress in this season You did rid
Thank You my soul responds to say
When no one else came to my aid, You did

Poem preview "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One"

 Hi Guys,

Here a poem from Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One, now featured in My Faves book. Technology has made our lives easier; but, has also given some more ways to get over on others. Operating through a highly technological world does sometimes require guidance. For me, the best guidance in maneuvering and operating through a highly technologically advanced society is with The Lord. He is my operating system!


   What’s Your Operating System?

 

How fruitless to operate without Him!
With Him we operate with purpose
What's your operating system?
 
Operating of the world seems slim
Where temporal gain can surface
How fruitless to operate without Him!
 
Windows, Linux and Android, a control system
Giving to this world a technical service
What's your operating system?
 
For technology this world gives at whim
Which, without Him can give disservice
How fruitless to operate without Him!
 
In utilizing technology many dismiss Him
Giving to some a criminal purpose
What’s your operating system?
 
Operating technology of the world can be grim
However, our lives with Him gives it purpose
How fruitless to operate without Him!
 
In the world technology can assist Him
But, many use it badly on purpose
What's your operating system?
 
Operating with the Lord we sing a hymn
Giving our lives to Him as purpose
How fruitless to operate without Him!
 
Operating in the world, we cannot skim
Our presence here given on purpose
How fruitless to operate without Him!
What’s your operating system?
 
The world operates of a technological system
But, operating with Him we provide service
How fruitless to operate without Him! 
What’s your operating system?


 

 

Thoughts: Operating in this world today is hard without the utilization of technology; however, many use technologies to operate for bad reasons. Technology can be a great tool for the Lord’s use; but, special care and discernment is a must in operating in a world of technological systems. Please, always remember to operate under the purposeful service of the Lord!
