If

Ten Commandments

If I didn’t know You

As I truly do

I could tell a lie

And not blink an eye

Worship an idol

With any title

Use your name in vain

Or kill like Cain

Even cheat and steal

Without any ideal

Chosing not to laud

Parents and You, God

If I didn’t know You

As I truly do

I would break all Ten

As do some men

Mankind unaware

Living without care

Never to repent

On a knee that’s bent

Who’ve never heard

The Covenant word

If them I don’t tell

I’m guilty as well

Syllabic Verse/Rhyme

(Based on the Ten Commandments Of God)

#NaPoWriMo-Day 6-Prompt: Today, write a poem that emphasizes the power of “if,” of the woulds and coulds and shoulds of the world.

A Remembrance

Cross

Today

Lying in my path

A reminder of You

Twig cross created by the wind’s breath

Speaks loudly

Cinquain

Yesterday as I went out to get my mail it was windy and raining so I was walking with my hood up and head down, when I noticed what looked like a tiny beautiful cross lying in a pool of water on the blacktop. It was fashioned of two light colored twigs that apparently were blown by the wind to end up in that position. The way the light hit it it almost appeared to look golden. It stopped me in my tracks that’s for sure! As I pulled out my phone to snap a picture I thanked God for sending me this reminder on the day before Palm Sunday!

They “Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.” John 12:13 KJV

What is “Palm Sunday”?

What is “Holy Week”?

How To Get to Heaven

sky, Our Father   which art in heaven

It’s really not hard at all

Just listen for God’s call

He supplies the faith you need

Just let go, let Him lead

His Son has made the Way

So follow Him today 

In your heart believe

Salvation you’ll receive

Rhyme

confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,

and believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, 

thou shalt be saved. 

Romans 10:9-10

For Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

John 14:6

NaPoWriMo 2013, #19–Blessings–“Pocket Poem”

Blessings-Pocket Poem 2013This a “Pocket Poem” I wrote and shared yesterday.  I printed out 5 in the shape of a pocket, which I carried in my coat pocket,to share with people throughout the day.
One share was unexpected and very special!
So glad I was able to participate in “Pocket Poem Day 2013”
and  I plan  to do so every year
(And…next year I hope to print out even more to share! 🙂

 

 

I bless you with hope,
As you go about this day.
I bless you with dreams,
That will never fade away.
For as you keep these within,
The battle of life you will win!

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”
Numbers 6:24 (NKJV)
