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?.


I am staying up late

In order to contemplate…

God’s abundant mercy

For which I’m unworthy,

But by faith I might appropriate–through Christ! Jesus!

My own reflection


Daily Bible Bytes for you

When you were born

It was a proud moment

I was overjoyed

Holding a tiny baby

You brought joy

You brought giggling

You brought Lullaby

You made us parents

I became dad

Proud of you baby

You are my treasure

You are most precious

My mom said

She is your reflection

She resembles you

I was amazed

I was amazed

To see my own image

You are my reflection

Wonderfully and fearfully made

A poem by the Bible blogger

These lines are inspired by the scriptures from the Holy Bible.

Psalm 139:14 NASBS
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.

The song writer understood that he was created by God in an amazing way. Each one of us are our parents reflections. We reflect them even if we don’t approve their behaviour.

The Engine Driver


Echoes of the Past

DSC_0144 - Version 2

There is just some thing so appealing about steam trains, the very noise of them brings childhood memories flooding back.  Standing on a London platform, full of steaming engines, and people rushing to catch their trains……. ah wait a minute, nothing has really changed, except theres no smoke anymore.  Luckily there are now many steam train preservation societies where you can travel back in time on these wonderful trains.  This photo was taken on a visit to Wansford, near Peterborough in Cambridgshire in August 2014.  The railway is called the Nene Valley Railway and the station at Wansford is well worth a visit at anytime.

Your Genius Is Showing!


yadadarcyyada“I’m a misunderstood genius.”
“What’s misunderstood?”
“Nobody thinks I’m a genius.”
~ Bill Watterson

Social media can make people feel inadequate, but true genius is believing in yourself, not worrying about what others think, what others do, or what others have.

Genius, defined many ways by many people. To me, something or someone is genius if they give of themselves. Everyone is talking about the #TrumpShutdown of the U.S. government to build a wall between Mexico and the U.S., instead, why not talk about why so many people are living paycheck to paycheck? Talk about people not having enough for food, chemo drugs, etc. when the rich are buying multi-million dollar houses and apartments., homes, cars, clothes – how can these mean more than lives? That’s the opposite of genius, even cruel. Celebrities, don’t peddle expensive drugs on TV and the internet, instead, pay for drugs…
