WANTED…CLOSE COMMUNICATING!

WANTED CLOSE COMMUNICATING!

The problem was both had hurts,

Committed by trousers and skirts…

Commitment to trust

Gathered rust,

Both thought the other curt.

Walls and grudges build

Despite commitments to yield…

Many a marriage

Is disparaged,

By combat in the field.

Obvious one doesn’t understand,

The other’s health demands…

One bends over,

The other takes over

And pushes one into badlands.

The verbose one wonders why

The silent one won’t try

to open

As they’re hoping,

To fill them in bye-and-bye.

The silent one’s thoughts run sarcastic,

The other one listens to drastic…

And half the time

Is not so inclined,

They both fall into that basket!

WE GIVE OUR MAKER PRAISE

WE GIVE OUR MAKER PRAISE

We give our Maker praise

For all sorts of cloud and haze…

He wraps Himself proud

With myriad dark cloud,

We call Him the Ancient of Days!

All that with breath rejoice,

God  made Man His CHOICE…

Of being able

To choose God’s table,

Or favor and love to lose.

God wants with you to walk.

And not folk who just talk the talk…

Will you agree

His child to be,

Or for eternity balk?

–Jonathan Caswell

NO MORE TEARS…by Carl Gooch

No More Tears

Do you dwell in a home,
Where you tremble alone?
Is the quiet of your night,
Filled with fear and fright?

On a pillow moist with tears,
Are you tormented by fears?
In the darkness of your room,
Do you feast upon the gloom?

There is a small spark of hope,
Grip firmly to the rescuer rope.
With each word His love shows;
Promises spoken, hope grows.

His loving promises are true!
The Good News is for you!
No matter how bad your day,
Christ is the truth, the life and way.

It is in the dead of night,
When no help is in sight.
He hears our mournful plea,
And comes to you and me.

Rejoice our Savior lives!
Oh what comfort that gives.
With Him, there is no fears,
In His arms, there is no more tears.
