  1. Lean On Me

    Lean On Me
    When I was yet a tiny fir tree
    Shallow-rooted, supple, thin;
    Another young tree grew beside me
    And I thought it rude of him.

    I needed space; refused to share -
    Why couldn't he just go away?
    About his needs I did not care,
    But always wanted my own way.

    Then one fateful day at dawn
    As dew drops sparkled on my leaves,
  2. I Like the Night

    I Like the Night

    I love to stand in my garden at night
    When everything's lit by the moon's soft light;
    Listening to the rustling leaves
    Whilst flowers sway in the midnight breeze,
    And there above me - way up high
    I see the bejeweled velvet-clad sky:
    God's Creation at peace and at rest -
    Oh yes, I do like the night time best.

  3. A Whisper on the Wind

    A Whisper On the Wind

    A fog, a mist, a tear, a prayer,
    A shadow passing by;
    A choice, a test,
    No time to rest;
    Seemingly unfair.

    A word, a thought, a touch - a breath,
    A whisper on the wind;
    Now here, now gone:
    A snuffed out song,
    Fading into death.

    Life's short - it's here, then seen no more,
    Withering like grass;
    A time to choose
    Accept; refuse:
    To open up the door.
  4. 66. BOLDness to Witness the Gospel to others!

    Ya ever feel that hesitation to walk up to a stranger and say,

    "Hey... do you know that Jesus Christ died for us all and that the reason for His death, is so that I, you, and all... may live eternally with God the Father?"

    Paul was a man who met Jesus in such a profound way in that Jesus seemed to slap him off of a horse and even blinded Paul for a few days. Ya think this was enough to prepare Paul to go out and BOLDLY speak about Jesus? Well... even though the ...
  5. 65: Old fruit...

    A comment by a friend and then my wife's answer to that comment, got me thinking:

    God informs us that good fruit comes from a good tree:

    Matthew 7:17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by t
    heir fruits you will know them.

    So the question is... ...
