"A person should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of their life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Better than just hearing a little music was to spend the afternoon with a friend and to make music on her wonderful keyboards. We opened a Hymn book at the first page and the melodies flowed from there for two hours after which we both agreed it had been a 'God Spot.'


“ We are God’s workmanship ( poema) created in Christ Jesus

to do good works,

which God prepared in advance for us to do .”

Ephesians 2:10

An expression of The Word

Each season of my life a stanza

Determined and authored before time began

Bones and flesh wonderfully knit together

Purposefully, perfectly planned

A unique workmanship, in the Poet’s image

My life - a poem

A work of literary art partaking in speech and song

Lines penned not in ink but carved into my very being

Spirit upon spirit

Infused with new songs within my mouth

And in return covered with the sound of His joyful singing

My Life - a poem

Literary device used in creative profusion

As day after day flow in rhythmical meter

Similes to clarify my understanding -

Like a tree planted by streams of water,

which yields it’s fruit in season

As a deer pants for water, my soul pants for the Poet

And when I’m weary I can soar on wings like an eagle

My life - a poem

Metaphors shaping line after line -

Salt, a light, a sheep, a jar of clay,

A grafted branch producing fruit, sharing

Love, patience, kindness, joy

A letter written for the world to see

This work of the Poet’s redemption

Fully forgiven, faithful and free

My life - a poem

Crafted with passion, mercy and grace

Awaiting the day I see the author’s face

Free verse dancing, declaring His glory and praise

This workmanship archived for eternity

In the Poet’s Book of Life

My life - a poem
