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 bucket list author assured
Himself that his work endured…
Did awful in sales
But he prevails
By putting pieces out as lures!
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):
(Who makes poor patients and maybe why?)
(Nurses, therapist, aides from hospital, rehabilitation and home care I’ve known)
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
(Various related issues of interest)
THE END OF THE MATTER?
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
Roe vs, Wade this year,
With nary a mention or tear…
That they, in part, steered.
Only folks who care
Assert forgiveness is near…
Still have One
Who cleanses the inner fear.
When Christ comes in the air
Taking us home, also there…
Aborted souls waiting
Forgiving that fatal tear.*
Healing comes to within
Acknowledging confessing sin…
Take advantage of
Don’t let the uncaring man win.
* 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!
Stomps his feet…flying achieves…
In dreams so did I
When prompted to fly,
On certain R.E.M. eves!*
* R.E.M. …Rapid Eye Movement sleep, when most dreams happen…”eves” short for evenings–like New Years Eve.
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?
