Though Life can be extremely difficult
and experiences can deeply traumatize us,
we can learn to control how we respond -
as demonstrated by our Lord, Christ Jesus.
For He alone is the hope of our glory;
when we show genuine, jubilant enthusiasm,
we naturally exhibit that “God is within”;
thus, we’re able… to bridge sin’s chasm.
This separation from God can be overcome

The foolishness of Jehovah is…
wiser than the intellect of Mankind.
The overwhelming evidence is available,
by examining the thoughts of His mind.
Some may ask: “How is that possible?”
By reading and studying His Holy Word.
The Scriptures were divinely inspired
and in the hearts of men were stirred.
Love conquers all, from the “inside out”,
by the piercing of the human heart...

There was a great ditch
And an avenue of trees
From the busy town
To the cemetery’s silence
Ornate gates sick with rust
Relics of grander times
When they marked the way
To ancient Plascrug
Back and forth we jumped
Across the weed choked water
There was a Scout Hut
Near a playground
A row of park benches

Sadly, there are many intellectual postulations
that are well meaning, but fatally flawed.
One can only end up with an unholy mixture from…
combining Man’s religious views with God’s Law.
Beyond the constraints of the mental realm,
the human template of thought cannot contain God.
Yet after more than two thousand years of Church,
lessons are still not learned; so it’s not odd…

Lord, the possessions of Earth
have no permanent grip on my soul;
help me to focus solely on You,
knowing that everything else will fade…

Lord, the knowledge of Your Kingdom

my heart longs for new songs to sing.
Help me to absorb more of Your ways,
while I forget about… these earthly things.

How can mortals completely envision heaven?
Exploring the fullness of what we’ll see,

Frankly, it’s still seems quite odd
to debate the religion of Science
with regard to the existence of God.
Within the vacuum of deep space,
we know that there was an invisible force
that caused the “Big Bang” to take place.
Calculating the Universe’s starting point
can’t explain “why” we’re here on this planet,
despite pretty charts and graphs of datapoints.

Poetry isn't just a pencil,
or pen, a piece of paper,
or words that flow just right.
Poetry is of many words,
many unspoken thoughts,
many unshowed feelings,
and is put together
to tell a story.
It tells a story
of a persons' struggles
And paints a picture
for the reader to see.
And each poem of mine
is written with such heart.
All my feelings I keep inside

Beauty is simple,

Sometimes beauty is ugly,
