LINE IN THE SAND… a poem of faith

Image Credit

I drew that line in the sand

But someone wiped it off again

So, I got down on my hands and knees

And drew it back where it had been

Image Credit

No sooner had I turned around

To glare back at the crowd

When someone started laughing

And someone else let out a shout

That line you drew it cannot last

No matter how hard you try

There’s a shadow cast down from a cross

Where Jesus had to die

Image Credit

But in His death, He took with Him

What should come as a surprise

Every sin that’s ever been

Along with every line

WEEKEND…a poem

The weekend is here

And it’s going to be full

With a garden to dig

And weeds to pull

My wife’s buying flowers

To plant, who knows where

Some over here

And more over there

I will borrow a tiller

To till up some rows

In hopes that my plantings

Will grow and grow

And as each day

Draws to a close

With a beer or some wine

In my hand, who knows

I’ll reflect on this time

God gives me on earth

And rejoice in the splendor

Of His beautiful works

PROMISE…a poem

Image Credit

Yesterday, I made a promise,

And today it won’t come true.

Why does it always work this way,

When it comes to you!

——————

I realize these things take time,

But my patience is at an end.

How can I fulfill the promise

When I never did begin?

——————

Tides, they don’t procrastinate.

When the ebb is spent they flow.

The proffered words that left my mouth

Had but one way to go.

——————-

Please, won’t you forgive this fool,

He didn’t mean to lie?

Caught up in the yesterday

While time keeps creeping by.
