A Cry for Mercy

Floods and Fires
“No more rain Lord”

A wet flooded Houston crys

“Rain Lord, we need rain ”

Oregonians praying

Wildfires raging 

And flood waters displacing

Elements ignore

Our Nation is on its knees

May God’s mercy be upon us

Choka

Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee. Psalm 33:22

The Legacy of March

Lion, Lamb
March of many weathers enters

Like a Lion’s loud roar

Shaking the barren tree limbs

From their sleepy core
Awakening season’s centers

To life once more

Then the Lion sleeps, time dims

March shuts Winter’s door
With Daffodil’s as assenters

And Songbirds galore

March leads a chorus of hymns

Life to restore
As Springtime rain mentors

March exits, no encore.

Like a frisky Lamb she skims

Toward the exit door

Portion Pondering 


Will you leave a legacy of love and joy?

Or pilot a trail of endless pain?

With what marked traits does your life employ?

Will you keave a legacy of love and joy?

Or a bitter life which does annoy

By seeking only its own selfish gain?

Will you leave a legacy of love and joy?

Or pilot a trail of endless pain?
