Charred

Charred

Charred
========

A char along the edges,
Be not too distraught,
The Lord gently chastising,
His goal, your soul restored.

So in this blight, take pride,
Wound inflicted and healed,
It is only those deemed worthy,
That in mercy, He so deals.
~ D.F.

Old Dog

Old Dog

From days of spring, to the wintery cold,
Beating faint, a heart of purest gold.
Eyes old, dimming, just one desire warming,
To lay by his master, watch the sun slowly sleeping.
~ D.F.

Like A Child

Like A Child

Like a Child
=•=•=•=•=•=•=

Have you found again that treasure,
All forsaking, to possess?
Feel quiet embers fan back to life,
Become like a child again.
~ D.F.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”
~ Matthew 13:44

Teacher’s Miracle

Teacher's Miracle

The Lord has worked his miracle,
Five loaves, two fish, 5,000 feed*.
But a greater feat, He must summon,
Forty youngsters in class to teach!
~ D.F.

*To all teachers of the young: You guys work miracles daily! Thank you 🙂
