LIKE BARNABAS…

Lie Barnabas, encourage your  flock,

To stand upon Jesus the Rock…

Not sinking sand–

The precepts of Man–

Humanism is crock!

Don’t mix holy/ profane,

And soil your Lord God’s  Name…

Let believers date

No outsiders mate,

Why the Lord’s jealousy inflame?

Close to your Savior cling,

His Spirit will teach everything…

His promises true

Trust Him do,

Lay your life down for the King!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

 

DO I WISH THESE WERE BEERS?

Snapped open a can of MOXIE,

A passer-by asked, was it proxy…

For a cold beer–

Told her the year,

I stopped such orthodoxy!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

A REAL SHOCK I AM?

Finding a nearly-sixty-year-old,

Fashion poet leaves some rather cold…

A shock to see

The  elderly,

Actively trends they behold!

He sin’t always a saint,

But postive pictures he’ll paint…

Good exposure and pride

Knowing someone’s on their side,

Hoping his maleness isn’t a taint!

Again he must balance his views,

Determined to spread good news…

His challenge is to write

Poetic fashion insight,

Though alas, bias for certain styles–skews!

A fan of the button-up blouse,

It’s clean lines he’ll endorse…

Other styles

He compiles,

To show what they are, of course!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

A NOTE ABOUT THIS CRAZY (?) BLOG:

(In poetic form, of course!)

Many folks apparently,

Like this poetry…

But far and away

They come for the array

Of posts re-blogged by me!

I’m sorry–the fault is mine,

For so was I inclined…

Toward building a base

Of readers at a pace,

Shown to work over time.

A vast majority say

The reblogs are why they stay…

Or at least I infer

That from comments heard,

My poetry–well, it’s okay!

There are–how many?–a “few’,

Who look for my limericks too…

Separation doesn’t work–

My ego got jerked–

The experiment was through!

A ratio of four-to-one,

Or higher to which it has come…

Sometimes I regret

My impatience, yet,

It still is a lot of fun!

STANDING STILL VERSUS SITTING STILL

Says God Almighty, “Stand still”

“To see what becomes of My will…”

Deliverance comes

As one of God’s sons,

Standing ready for His will.

Sit when the journey’s complete,

Time to relax–rest the feet–

Gospel shoes on–

Be ready for the dawn–

When we our Savior will meet!

Christ has sat down,

Beside his Father crowned…

Awaiting that day

Those who stand ready are snatched away,

Then the ones ready  sit wearing crowns!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

 

GOING AHEAD WITH THE PLAN…

Signed my buddy in,

The desk will be neat as a pin…

He likes it clean–

Sanitized, I mean!

For when he ever gets in.

–J.E.C.

 

WORSHIP EQUALS LOVE EXPRESSED!

(Ideas came from this morning’s broadcast of THE BLESSED LIFE, with Robert Morris, on DAYSTAR TV)

Worship is love expressed,

It’s said women do it best…

But as men

We act on it then,

Not as verbal as one might suggest!

We serve in our own way,

Demonstrative in quiet ways…

The Lord Most High

Was once a guy,

He was practical in His praise.

We men have to cut loose

A little, being humble in use…

In praise and prayer

Leading families there,

Raising hands and praising God–no excuse!

–Jonathan Caswell
