HONOR THEM WE MUST.

A most impressive and sobering sight.

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?.

    A deeply sad yet beautiful picture.
    Hope you don’t mind me posting this. Endless respect for all the forces in the world that uphold human decency and peace for us all.

    WARS OF THE WORLD

    The people that cared.
    So brutally snared.
    Removed from this race.
    We pray for them a better place.
    To give your life for your clan.
    The ultimate for woman or man.
    Never will a thought not pass,
    Where they are not deemed a different class.
    A class above us all.
    To let themselves fall.
    They did it you see,
    For you and for me.
    So today we can be.
    Be ourselves and walk free.
    Lest we ever forget.
    The ones we never met.
