RECURRING

Missed church–again fell asleep–

So hard with the hours to keep…

C-PAP on fritz

Trouble that it’s

Sleep deprivation deep.

–J.E.C.

A NEW CLOSENESS

My wife and I decided

Having to each other confided…

Ending out night

With reading God’s light,

Keeps us from being divided.

A  Bible chapter read,

Followed by prayer before bed…

Strengthens faith–

Our relationship’s safe,

Proving out faith isn’t dead.

Started in Genesis,

Will go til there’s nothing we’ve missed…

Book by book

In Scripture look,

To learn how to re-enlist!

–Jonathan caswell

LET DOWN EASY

LET DOWN EASY

Believing God this week,

Although often seemed up a creek…

On Saturday

We don’t often play,

We’re generally falling asleep!

–Jonathan Caswell

AFTER BAKING SWEET ITALIAN SAUSAGE

AFTER BAKING SWEET ITALIAN SAUSAGE…

The apartment was already hot,

We decided to clean the oven….

Fumes were what we got

Which got smoke detectors alarming!

We opened all the windows–

It was eighty degrees outside–

I fanned the detectors with a dirty T-shirt

And hoped the noise would subside.

We woke to the TV going,

At least I did from sleep…

That self-cleaning oven was slowing

And I had appointments to keep!

–Jonathan Caswell

(The sausage, by the way, was a little overcooked…but edible.)
