It’s very surprising that “SATOR Squares”

the mighty Roman army had gone;
can they together, really belong?
Can anyone else see

It’s been learned that it’s not a game
and a truth, always remains the same.

Can it be a mere coincidence,

Tis important to remember,
the holy Standard that was set for us!
Its purchase was selflessly made
by our beloved Christ Jesus.
Upon Calvary, this single sacrifice
of Jehovah’s perfect, atoning Lamb
completely demonstrates the truest form of Love
from our God, the Great I Am.

God’s heavenly desires and ways
are much higher than our own.
Spiritual maturity is required
to reach towards His holy throne.
Hidden within the Scriptures
is a common, universal theme –
Application of Biblical principles
is needed to achieve our earthly dreams.
Under guidance of the Spirit,
prophets captured God’s intended plan;
laid out to see was Yahweh’s vision –

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

Know God and know peace,

Earthly troubles will never cease -
Use faith to quell the inner longing.
Regardless of your circumstance,

Rejoice in the midst of difficulties;
in His Presence, find holy favor.

Seeing Christ seated on His throne,

then ‘Why does He make for us daily intercession?’

Above us is the Celestial Lodestone,
the universal point of spiritual reference.
As a stalwart of magnetic attraction,
He constantly draws men unto Himself.
Dynamic in nature and unchanging in purpose,
His principles are adaptable for all situations.
The foundation of His Word is solid;
His Truth is filled with plenty of promise.
Raise your eyes! Look up!

Under the duress of the sacrificial Cross
and positioned between two thieves,
the culmination of grace for the World
was granted - via Jehovah’s heavenly reprieve.
Surrounded by the stench of death,
Christ uttered famous words of forgiveness;
enduring human suffocation with each dying breath,
His Light steadfastly opposed foreboding darkness.
His heart was forcefully punctured,

Man-made structures can’t last

Who is to determine ones beauty?
What is Beauty?
Beauty is simple,
Its the DNA used to create a life,
Sometimes beauty is ugly,
And sometimes it is pretty,
By this in no way do I compare to looks,
It's not the shape of your body,
It's not the shape of your nose,
It's not the shape of your smile,
It's not the shape of your eyes,
It's not the color of your hair,

On that fateful day of Pentecost,

For it originated with God’s presence
and His Kingdom, that’s far beyond our sky.

and the opinionated amazement of the crowd.
