A household of faith – standing side by side
For each other’s needs prepared to provide
Bound as a family – steeped in love
Like that shown to us from Him above
While we were yet sinners, we still had His affection
And He placed us on a path to develop perfection
While we may not have managed to attain it
We begin with things like the kindness we transmit
For each of our brethren have their needs
And we can easily provide for them – when we give up our greed
We are a household, one built on belief
And together we can change the world – giving to others relief
Thank you again Brother Vince for a powerful message
With dew moistened strands
Your work displays
Now not as effective
As in warmer days
As autumn – like summer
Comes to pass
Is your knit-work all of you
That will last?
Left behind in its same old place
No new journeys now to face
Once the pride, now an eyesore
Not really much use anymore
This is the way we deal with things
But when we do it to each other
It really stings
Viewing the blip – we call time and space
Taking it all in at His own pace
Beyond the comprehension
Of limited beings
How could I possibly explain such seeings?
Today’s prompt: What does it mean to be eternal? What does it look like? Describe any colors, ideas, or emotions.
Monarch of the Wood, I have seen your chair
Why was it that you were not there?
Is it that your realm invasion faces
With plastic, and filth in your precious places?
Have you gone – your lands to defend?
Shall you return at the battle’s end?
Or shall we weep that you have fled the place?
Please say, I pray, that’s not the case
You dismiss yourself as a country bumpkin
But the stuff that you know is really quite something
Who these days – still knows how to sew?
Or can their own veg, much less make it grow?
Your skills are precious in world all online
As you can survive – network fail time
We say we’ve moved on
Beyond fairy tale and superstition.
Led by the empirical, our own minds,
And accompanied by selfish ambition
We have abandoned the divine,
Leading to society’s demolition.
When “I” become more than the rest of the whole
If followed by all – this has a terrible toll.
Society and culture are meant to be a collective
If we live just for ourselves – that must surely be defective.

Stitches and weaves
Patterned knots and twists
Woollen yarn warm
From neck to the wrists
Knit or crocheted
Or made on a loom
To hold winter at bay
And its accompanying gloom
And of all the jumpers, cardies,
Sweaters, and vests
It are those made by a loved one
That are always best
The true warmth in winter is found in love.
I am educated
I know my stuff
But knowing about
Is not enough
The Word of God
Is a thing to live
Not just something some study to give
Yes love the Lord with all your mind
But also with heart and strength combined
Study yes – to show yourself approved
But don’t forget to be by the Spirit moved
