To my Son
When I saw your unborn body only a few cells big, colours burst forth in my mind like flowers from the earth.
A rainbow of cerebral impulses, a whirlwind of ideas. Red roses with water drops and sunlight glitters instantly came forth in my thoughts.
Gracious gift of God, Creator makes. You are being knit together in your mother’s womb: atoms, molecules, fingers and cells, nerves, toes, hands and chromosomes.
In the beginning God made the heavens and the earth. Then He made humans who made babies who made babies who made you.
What would happen if we lost the compass of morality? If we lived like anchor-less vessels. If there was nothing to guide our course, nothing to unite the fleet of society. Every sailor doing whatever they see fit. Every boat filled with holes of meaninglessness. Mutiny to gain power. Scurvy of the soul. The foul smell of self-autonomy. The wood rot of bitterness. The over salted meat of too much wealth.
The end of this lifestyle is clear. Alone in a boat lay two corpses, a man and a woman – Adam and Eve. Old and shriveled. Alive in the dead sea, wandering endlessly and crazy from sea sickness. If only humanity had turned to their Creator.
Knives and the King
One day, on our way to school, two large men approached. Darkness lurched. Evil eyes pierced. In a flash, knives were pulled out. Large daggers. Swords. Dragons talons.
“Who would save us? “This was the golden question.
Our response that day was not to run or fight, but to pray. We prayed our loud in Jesus name. The men ran away and we were saved. Amazement. Excitement. Joy.
Faithful Lord Your name is great You made the earth and sky, You are the source of all we need Your love goes deep and wide.
Faithful Lord Your name is great Your mighty voice thunders, just like You did in the early church confirm Your word with wonders.
Faithful lord Your name is great and the light of Your truth is bright, as Daniel lay in the lion’s den You stood by him all night.
Faithful Lord Your name is great You made the earth and sky, reveal Yourself in our day removing every lie.
Faithful lord Your name is great You made the earth and sky, You are the source of all we need Your love goes deep and wide.
What or who is this?
- There she sat. Hot and steamy. Dark brown with a lipstick stain.
- He lay before me. Soft and still. Small and silent. Safely sleeping.
- I saw a gentleman today in a black shiny coat, siting on a rock, watching the world go by. Calm and collected. Wide eyed.
- With arms hanging low she stood by the slowly flowing stream, weeping. Drops of tears piercing the silence of the water.
