Tonight I’m feeling anxious

About this weekend’s storm,

By then I may be working

And driving as was the norm…

Going to make sure Di. is safe*

With charged battery packs,

If the lights go out she can move her chair

To get whate’er she lacks!

Oh, an early springtime snowstorm

Can be a wondrous thing,

A final chance to earn some bucks

For those who do plowing…

Most towns are near the end of salt

In their reserve supply,

We’ll take it for one more big blow

So let those snowflakes fly!

Emergency batteries

Hooked to my C-PAP,

So I can sleep with the power out

And wake up feeling apt…

We have enough blankets

And oil for lantern light,

The Lord will provide our meals–

Peanut butter is in sight!

–Jonathan Caswell

* Di., …short for Diana…my beloved wife who has a power lift recliner she’s gotten stuck in during power outages.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
