Hope

some wander through the wilderness of life
without a star to navigate the way,
or a friend who’s qualified to guide.
thus they meander, lonely, empty and bereaved.
some live a life of self-deceptive peace,
which glorifies the enemy of man.
‘tis hopelessness and intellectual pride
this tranquil poultice to a soul that yearns
unknowingly, for God’s respect and love.
life’s perfect, peaceful, masterpiece.
darkened angels, lock with mirth, heaven’s gates,
while Lucifer? he grins and rubs his hands in glee!
God’s way is crystalline,
not muddied with some phantom words.
the verity, my friends, is here;
Jesus Christ, died for the world, that all,
should have eternal life and love,
perpetually.

    Treena’s words are a beautiful reminder of where my focus needs to stay to access and maintain hope.

    My primary care physician has a posting in the examination room that says: “a tongue has no bones but is strong enough to break a heart”. So true. I heard a pastor say: “God made the tongue to be double walled behind both teeth and lips”.
    Sarcasm is a terrible trait. It’s mostly out of ignorance and a shielding of ones own insecurities and weaknesses. Take it in stride – be stronger and wiser for it. Pray for those who persecute you.

    P.S. My mistake – I meant to post this on the blog for jesting.

    I’m loving Treena’s heart in words. Graham – you were blessed with the task of experiencing the finer things in life on a scale many of us will never know. Being given Treena was truly the first step in a most remarkable and memorable life adventure. Who would know but only the Lord. Thank you for sharing so much with us now.
