THE LORD CLEANED MY COMPUTER.

THE LORD CLEANED MY COMPUTER

(or arranged it!)

To say that God cleaned it

Is to say He arranged the act…

There is no doubt that without His clout

I once again would have been smacked.

The on-line guy never called back

So I was left in the lurch…

I asked Pastor for prayer and

He and others prayed right in church.

My neighbor introduced me to the man who

Had been fixing computers a while…

He didn’t upload what I wanted,

But left me with a smile.

He did as he’d normally done,

Cleaned and set things up right…

So now I’m safer with protection besides

And the cost was much less of a fright!

The Lord in His mercy sent someone along,

Of that I am entirely convinced…

If I had gone with my original plan,

The bank account would have winced!

A NEW SERIES !

A NEW SERIES!

A bucket list author assured

Himself that his work endured…

Did awful in sales

But he prevails

By putting pieces out as lures!

–Jonathan Caswell

    I had me a book manuscript nearly ( ? ) completed…and suddenly decided not to publish, at least not at that publisher, as nice as the new staff .  Maybe I will send it to them but not just now.

ON THE RECEIVING END,

by Jonathan Caswell

SO…on this blog, BY THE MIGHTY MUMFORD and my other blog, THE MARVELOUS MUMFORD–and maybe some teasers at OUR POETRY CORNER–I’ll be posting poetry from the alleged book until I figure out where and how to formally publish it–if at all.  🙂

THE BOOK…is about my recent experience over the last six months or so, damaging, ignoring, losing two toes on my right foot by amputation, rehab. and recovery.  The basic premise–with other observations added–is to look at how difficult doctors, caretakers and such like me ( ! ) make such terrible patients, when it’s our turn to be cared for!

Other bloggers use some titles repeatedly as categories.  Each of mine here are what I plan to use in the book, which is, as you know, semi-autobiographical.  These subtitles will be (in this series):

READY…AIM…FIRE!

(Who makes poor patients and maybe why?)

THE HEALERS

(Nurses, therapist, aides from hospital, rehabilitation and home care I’ve known)

REHAB RUMINATIONS

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

(Various related issues of interest)

THE END OF THE MATTER?

ROOF CLEANING DETAIL

ROOF CLEANING DETAIL

One nearly slipped off the roof,

I do declare forsooth…

They need safety belts

To avoid big welts,

I’d say this is the proof!

HEALING FOR WITHIN

HEALING FOR WITHIN

Roe vs, Wade this year,

With nary a mention or tear…

Pagan presses

Ignoring messes

That they, in part, steered.

Only folks who care

Assert forgiveness is near…

Abortions done

Still have One

Who cleanses the inner fear.

When Christ comes in the air

Taking us home, also there…

Aborted souls waiting

And anticipating

Forgiving that fatal tear.*

Healing comes to within

Acknowledging confessing sin…

Take advantage of

Redeeming Love,

Don’t let the uncaring man win.

–Jonathan Caswell

* the fatal tear(-ing away of life)…forgiveness of the momma who aborted her child, BY THE CHILD SO ABORTED, is an idea expressed by this week’s TV broadcasts of THE GOSPEL TRUTH program with Andrew Womack–which included an interview with a woman who was the survivor of an attempted abortion by her mother.  See http://www.awmi.net.

GEORGE REEVES DID IT.

GEORGE  REEVES DID IT!

Superman–Geoge Reeves–

Stomps his feet…flying achieves…

In dreams so did I

When prompted to fly,

On certain R.E.M. eves!*

–Jonathan Caswell

* R.E.M. …Rapid Eye Movement sleep, when most dreams happen…”eves” short for evenings–like New Years Eve.

THE GREAT AMERICAN “IF”

THE GREAT AMERICAN “IF”

You’ve seen them on TV,

Sales pitches made legally…

“IF” this were true

We’ll sell this to you

In spite of reality.

Antennas for digital broadcasts,

Outside of cable–in the past?

I heard they’re scrambled

Yet the guy’s ambled

Up, selling his antennas fast!

It’s that old legendary

Yankee trader:  be wary…

Nutmegs from trees

So buy these, please,

(Only wood–that offer is scary)!

Are these antennas any good?

The simulated picture would…

Suggest that it’s so

But I don’t know,

If the signals are scrambled…what would?
