REAR GUARD ACTION

REAR GUARD ACTION

On the way home traffic was slow,

For what reason I didn’t know…

A loaded R.V.

With trailer was the,

Reson for brake light glow!

I don’t travel fast at night,

To me it seemed right…

To become its rear guard

So drivers untoward,

With me could flash their lights.

Most everyone went round,

No angry horns did sound…

Two lanes in each way

Saved the day,

When the R.V. down-hill slowed down!

My exit came up for my nest,

The R.V. driver I blessed…

I prayed that they

Safely made their way

To where they’d be stopping next!

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?.
