How Mighty is His Power

I’d like to give a shout-out and thank you to Pete from Walking In Christ for inspiring this poem’s subject. 🙂

– I could fill these blog pages a hundred times and not begin to tell how many wonderful things He has done for me. I bet you can do the same. The goodness of God overwhelms us every day, and many times we just forget to think about it. The air we breathe, the trees and flowers, the sun that rises every day, the stars that glow at night are just the beginning of the good things He gives us. Let us never again forget all the good things He has done for us. – Pete

How Mighty is His Power

Let us give our Lord praise!
His goodness is overwhelming,
He blesses us in so many ways –
Let us never forget these things!

He made air so that we can breathe,
For beauty, He made the flowers;
For fruit and wood, He made trees –
Oh how mighty is His power!

He created emotions so that we may love,
He created music so we may sing,
And words so we may worship Him above –
Let us never forget these things!

He created the stars that twinkle in the night,
The sun that rises to end the dark hours,
Giving us their warmth and light –
Oh, how mighty is His power!

Walk with God

Israel 527Jeremiah 6:26-28
New International Version (NIV)

26 Put on sackcloth, my people,
and roll in ashes;
mourn with bitter wailing
as for an only son,
for suddenly the destroyer
will come upon us.
27 “I have made you a tester of metals
and my people the ore,
that you may observe
and test their ways.
28 They are all hardened rebels,
going about to slander.
They are bronze and iron;
they all act corruptly.

What Are Ye Made Of?

There is a metal of silver and gold
That has claimed many a man
Both body and soul

There is a medal, an achievement marks
That shows a man’s courage
It’s worn o’er his heart

There’s also a meddle that’s a worrisome thing
It comes from the devil
And his sick interfering

And last, it’s our mettle, the will to survive
In times that are tough
That helps us to thrive

Flying Above The Turtle’s Shell

This is week twenty-four of 100 Word Wednesday, and here is the photo and my response. 🙂 If you’d like to join in the fun, just click the link! 😉

100 words exactly this week! 🎊

I look beneath me to see
An island on a turtle’s shell
Floating haphazardly
Along the ocean’s swells.

What an adventure! But I’d rather fly
Up here in the salty air
Than have my fate decided by
That turtle down there.

For when it finally goes under,
I’d hope that the one who in there dwells
Attached the house firmly, or it will asunder
And the pieces will become driftwood on the swells!

I catch the early morning breeze
And leisurely, on the air currents I drift away;
Flapping feathered wings with ease,
Hoping to see the turtle again someday!

A field once filled daily with kids kicking a ball into a goal, now as empty as a body without a soul

No ball, no children, just two poles and a net stand, as a reminder of the fun that once occurred on this land

Will they return here or will this place sink into the depths of history’s embrace?

Salamander Surprise

When walking out to the garden, my mom almost stepped on this fellow:

Her reaction at first was, “SNAAAAAAAAKE,” but that was quickly followed by, “Oh never mind, it has legs.” 😂 She was quite relieved.

He was kind enough to let me get 20+ photos of him. Poor thing seemed to have lost its tail though. He seemed fine besides that. He was much faster than I expected. When he finally left, it was so fast that if I had blinked I would have missed it.

I’m glad that God brought him across my mom’s path so these photos could be taken! 🙂
