  1. Easier Said Than Done

    Easier Said Than Done

    Have you talked to God today;
    Bowed your head down low to pray?
    Have you bared your soul to Him;
    Have you let Him in?

    Have you fed a needy child;
    Wiped away a tear and smiled?
    Have you shown you truly care
    By offering a meal and prayer?

    Have you helped your friends in need -
    Shown God's love through a good deed?
    Have you listened when they talked;
    Have you walked the

    Maybe next year …




    Hello … I have been busy constructing a new site called http://kotelha-maaravi.com/ it’s easier to give you the link and you can see what I’m up to … It’s still in the construction stage … But I’m getting there … I wrote this about 6 o’clock this morning ...


    Being in control … Of what we say … I thought that … Is that what I should say … We don’t always know our motives for our motor mouth today … Our old nature has a lot to ...
  3. Someone

    Someone

    Going through the motions,
    Seemingly all right;
    Hiding my emotions,
    Feeling quite uptight.

    Plastering a smile
    All over my face;
    Trying all the while
    To keep up the pace.

    “Everything is fine,
    Everything's OK -
    Having a good time
    Doing things my way."

    Still I am so lonely -
    Feeling dead inside;
    Wishing I could only
    Have someone at my side:

  4. The Hour's at Hand

    The Hour's at Hand

    A hundred years or so ago
    The 'War to end all wars' was fought -
    Or so, at least, the people thought.

    Nevertheless millions of people -
    Women, babes, children and men
    Have died between today and then.

    Wars and rumors of more wars
    Have been increasing day by day;
    They simply will not go away.

    The future looks quite bleak and scary;
    Many things are going wrong;

  5. The Big Fish

    The Big Fish

    It happened on a stormy day
    When the sky was dark and gray
    That I was feeding in the sea
    When suddenly in front of me
    I saw a man struggling to swim
    So I closed in and swallowed him.

    For three days and three nights I swam
    Carrying the praying man
    Towards a town called Niniveh;
    Then, without the least delay
    I spit him out onto the land
    And left him kneeling on the sand.
