self destruct

Self-Destruct

So
This life
The trees, hills
Mountains, valleys,
Our human bodies
Things we deem important
Material possessions
Entire Earth and Universe
Are all set to self-destruct in time.
We whimper, longing for eternity.

Self-destruct

Self-Destruct

S o it seems like I should tear down the old and
E rect the new. I search through my mind and feel
L et down at the life I live. If I could do anything,
F orgetting finances and commitments, what would I
D o? I disappoint myself, not knowing the answer.
E ven though it has been my own decisions that
S ent me to this point, I’m not truly happy and I
T ruly need to make some changes in my life, but I
R eturn to the question: What makes me happy? If I
U nderstand correctly, my happiness is not most
C rucial. What makes God happy? Does He want me
T o be content with the mundane? So, I seek You, Lord.

Whosoever

Whosoever Comes to Their Senses

Whosoever surely meaneth me
says the old hymn, pointing out
that God longs for everyone,
like the prodigal son, to come
to their senses and run straight
into His welcoming embrace
and enjoy the benefits and
pleasures of being His child.

Triangle

The Trinity

There’s nothing more that blesses me
Than knowing the sweet Trinity
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
To them I honor and love the most.
The Father’s loving eyes on me
Gives me hope and assurity
The Son’s precious sacrifice
Makes me wonder at my price
The Holy Ghost’s calming me
Gives me hope that sets me free
I worship and adore the Three
And look so forward to eternity.

Complicit?

Enabling loved ones
to destroy themselves
with bad habits.

triangle

Triangle

T riangle with three sides and three angles
R eally amazing that it’s a whole branch of math
I sosceles, right, obtuse, equilateral, scalene,
A cute. And then there’s sine, cosine, tangent, and
N ever forget Pythagorean’s theorem, a2 + b2 = c2  
G ood grief, I’ve left trigonometry back in high school,
L ayered somewhere back in my brain along with
E uler and Newton. The numbers don’t add up anymore.
