MAKE THINE HEART BE STILL

Make thine heart be still,

According to God’s will…

Beauty passes

So do lasses,

So do those giant phone bills!

Once married, be still,

But pray every day at will…

Marriage is work

But worth every perk,

Promise Mom you will.

Women are gentle but tough,

While we are rugged–too rough…

Open wide

What you are inside

(Although it’s never enough!).

Determine to love more than sex,

But in a man’s priority that’s next (!)…

Learn to treasure

Her by all measures,

(Which in the beginning, might leave her perplexed)!

She is your garden’s jewel,

Above all–don’t be cruel–

Nuture and wash

Her with panache,

Nor are you her mule!

Enjoy marriage lustily,

There’ll come times when this can’t be…

Make love sound

By laying thyself down,

As Christ did for thee!

—-Jonathan Caswell

Diana and I will have been married 28 years, this June third.

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?.
