Lazy Me

Lazy Me

Waves catching sunlight, gently yields the wind,
Out in the lazy waters, soaking in the sea.
Earthly cares releasing, shores of mortality,
Distant voices fading, now, just my God and me.
~ D.F.

Dopamine

Dopamine

We await the chosen hour, when He shall come again,
Our faith, justly rewarded, a home in heaven stay.
Yet lest these souls be fainting, weary mortals fray,
In mercy, grace releasing, dopamine* to tide this day.
~ D.F.

*dopamine – the human body’s “reward” hormone

Red & White

Red & White

Saint, sinner, the hungry, take heed,
The Lord at supper, His flock to feed.
Flesh and blood, red and white, meet,
Tis God Himself! The soul’s true need.
~ D.F.

*************
“Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how He was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.”
~ Luke 24:35

Shame

Shame

Oh what a sham! Such an awful shame!
The Word, living and free, boxed in a frame.
Is it any wonder, our lives feeble and lame?
Whither the hunger that fuels the flame?
~ D.F.

*************
“No one who lights a lamp hides it away or places it under a bushel basket, but on a lampstand so that those who enter might see the light.”
~ Luke 11:33

Abram

Abram

Swirling winds and the endless floor,
Yahweh beckons,”Come, follow my call.”
Old and familiar, regard them, no more,
Stars and sand, your faith to the fore.
~ D.F.

*************
“Abram took his wife Sarai, his brother’s son Lot, all the possessions that they had accumulated, and the persons they had acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land of Canaan.”
~ Genesis 12:5
