Troubles rarely call a break,

Even for holidays’ sake…

It’s not right or wrong

To admit you;re not strong,

Having to pull up a stake.

Thankful for what’s here,

Knowing that God is near…

Those all alone

May choose a good Home,

If by Messiah they steer.

Thankful for trouble and gloom

More is there than assumed…

Those in Christ

Learn sacrifice

As more of their heart makes room!

Thanksgiving for a new day,

Another chance to walk His Way…


For maturity

By every dark part of the day!

Praise in reflection

Life’s imperfection…

Yet we live

The adventure to drive,

Until death’s intervention!

Be thankful one day at a time,

For your life, harsh or sublime…

God in heaven

To us life has given,

You and whomever is thine!

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 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 hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
