DAY-BY-DAY GOD LEADS

After the Child was born,

Joseph was duly warned….

Warned in a dream

Of Herod’s blood scheme,

Traveling far from harm!

Believers today face the same,

Sudden deliverance named…

Listen each day

Finding the way,

Keeping their new faith from harm!

As Joseph, so should we,

Do what’s necessary…

Shielding one’s faith

Moving where it’s safe

Escaping Herod’s fury.

Then when The time is right,

Let Christ within you shine bright…

Obedience true

Is up to you,

If Christ would be your light!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

I DON’T REALLY THINK HE MEANT TO…?

I don’t think he meant to,

Shove his blood sugar down through…

The danger zone

Way, way down,

Down where life might be through!

Discovered his mistake then,

Tried packing food in…

Chicken, roast beef,

Glucose tabs for relief,

And test all over again!

How much—oid he take (?)—

Too much for his sake…

“DR 500”

And he wondered,

If he sleeps, will he ever awake?

His insulin pen had jammed part way,

Drawing out with a syringe to save…

Medicine

Still within,

Not usually an idiot this way…!

–Jonathan Caswell

MODEL TRAIN TIP-OVER!

A model painted “Susquehanna”

Ran south, toward Havana…

Stubbed a toe

flipped into the snow,

The icy rail joint got hammered!

The model–a “C-430”,

From ALCO was very dirty…

Handrails bent

As over it went,

It looked like it was hurting!

There wasn’t another for sale,

Either fix this one up or bail…

Old enough to scrap–

Recycle parts back,

And rare to find in N scale!

–Jonathan Caswell

Photo is of a REAL train,engine, rolled over…I believe near Marathon, NY.  Google Image.

THAT UNAPPROVED MESSAGE TWITCH!

He fell that nervous itch,

An unapproved message twitch…

Anticipation

Of excoriation,

From a condemnation they’ve stitched!

‘Though lately it’s been all joy,

Thanking him for his redeploy…

Of their posting–

Graciously hosting

It again, without being coy!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

TO CHRIST’S DISCIPLES “OUT THERE”:

This Poet has the method to his madness,

To share my Savior’s joy and gladness…

Enlisting Spirit vim

for those who hear Him,

And eyes would open in gladness.

It is to celebrate life,

To announce my love for my wife…

To share God’s gifts

Freely to enlist,

Souls to serve Him  for life!

At least that’s the crux of the matter,

Engaging in meaningful chatter…

I want to show

God’s love on the go,

Is going for ever after!!!!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

 

WHERE IS THAT FAIRY WORLD?

Where is the fairy world now,

In cities is it absent somehow…

Quiet forest glades

In most cities can’t be made,

Not even a mooing cow!

Cities tend toward sound,

Coming from all around…

Sound and light

Throughout any night,

Pretty hard to find fairy ground!

Perhaps in garden plots,

Common owners who believe a lot…

Putting fairy houses

In hopes that arouses,

Wee folk to give it a shot.

–Jonathan Caswell

 

THEY JUST DISAPPEARED!!!

She swallowed my comments TWICE,

I don’t think that was NICE…

One-sided talk–

The other side stopped–

Is really a fascist  DEVICE!

Although–there is another blog–

In which my comments don’t log…

This might be a measure

To some comments treasure,

I keep my comments open–not demagogue!

They can do what they like,

I will not return a strike…

Nor delete

Any comments I meet,

Unless that is what they’d like!
