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

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!

Today’s Choice

Crossroads, FAITH, FEAR
I am at crossroads

Today I have to make a choice

Which road shall I take

One marked Fear or Faith

Mind reels toward Fear

Heart wants to step out on Faith

Truth tells me to trust

And boldly take the step

To walk on Faith’s road today

Fruitful

White Daisy, Joy
I’m seeking to live 

A life that shows forth joy

In all circumstances

Filled with the Christ’s fragrance

And the fruit of His Spirit

Tanka

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22,23
