Purpose

Lamppost

Purpose

Of a Lampost.

To stand, uphold the Light.

At all times, in all seasons,

It stands,

Strong, sure, supporting the Light .

It’s purpose isn’t to shine,

But to stand firm,

Always.

Leaf Legacy

Leaf on sidewalk
Living 

Among shadows

Of the past’s occurances

Alone I face the future

Certain

That my life was not in vain

It was orchestrated

For a purpose

Fulfilled

Butterfly Cinquain

Based on Psalm 138:8  The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands. (ESV)

Greeter

Welcome Mat

Welcome!

My name is Mat

I meet and greet you daily 

I put myself out there for you 

Just smile

Acknowlege that I am sincere

My heart’s very fragile

Not a Door Mat

I’m real

Butterfly Cinquain

A Greeter is a person who greets people entering a store, church service, or other public place. When I wrote this poem I was thinking of Dennis who is a greeter at our local Walmart store. He is always friendly and outgoing no matter the day or time. He always greets with a smile, handshake, fist bump and good word. So many people appreciate his sincere friendly attitude. The world can surely use more people like this!

Job’s Question

FEAR

Afraid?

What is “the thing”?

What is the “that” in you

Which is so big it causes such

Great Fear?

Wonder if someday it suddenly

Becomes real and comes?

What will you do?

Panic?

Or Pray?

What will you do?

Will you fight or just freeze?

Will you crumble in trepidation?

I know

What i would do because it’s come.

And I am trusting God

To remove it

From me.

Job 3:25–“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”
