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?.

SATURDAY NIGHT’S ALRIGHT–FOR WRITING!

for most, saturday’s the time,

to compose and publish rhyme…

or maybe prose–

novels I suppose–

a very good use of time!

STOMACH REMEDY?

Too much butter frying eggs,

Made the tummy feel the dregs…

Of indigestion

Had begun,

For SOMETHING my stomach begs!

Two liters Diet ginger ale,

And unsalted cashews availed….

Barbeque-flavor chips

Sweeten lips,

Symptoms of upset nailed!

The Smell of Lilacs

MY WIFE, DIANA, HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE LILACS SHE GREW UP WITH….THAT ARE STILL BLOOMING TODAY. GETTING HOMESICK, SHE IS.

My Mother died in May when I was very young. It was especially hard on my Father because he had three young children to raise. He was grieving but had to keep going, work and take care of us. At different times when he was especially sad, he would smell Lilacs. It was God’s way of telling my Father that He held him in the palm of his hand. Because of my Father’s experience, Lilacs have always held a special place in my heart. When I see them and smell them, I am reminded that God knows my heart, loves me and is there with me in any pain or sorrow I am experiencing.

For those who don’t have a living Mother today, who may have lost a loved one recently, know that God has you in the palm of his hand…that He cares…

WHY WAS HE DEPRESSED?

Why was he depressed,

In many ways over stressed….

Inner tension

Is rarely mentioned,

He often slept fully dressed!

An old man playing with trains,

Selling off most of his gains…

Buying physical reminders

Of memories put blinders

To results from financial drains!

Getting things actually done,

Is a struggle—not the only one…

Counseling

Gave practical wings,

Climbing the first ladder rungs!

You depressed—take heart–

This struggle is one I’m a part…

Long distance hugs

Might brighten sad mugs,

You’re not alone—dodging life’s darts!

A Less Dark Poem

GREAT TO HAVE HER “GUNNING” FOR YOU!

The Dopamine Queen

Pretty eyed

Sunshine

Your dreams will come true

I’ve been tired

A long time

But I’m gunning for you

The moon shines

The same way

The counter used to

If I’m on time

The nest is fine

Then tell me what flew

Do you hear me

I can hear you

So it must be true

The time is falling

The sky is stalling

It’s all just cuckoo
