Tree of Life


The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground–
trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food.
In the middle of the garden were the tree of life
and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Genesis 2:9

Cleaning up


Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from your presence,
and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Psalm 51:10-12

Good Morning Lord


He is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning,
like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth.
2 Samuel 23:4

The Witch of Endor


This is my poem of the week. 
It’s probably more suited for Halloween time, 
but it’s taken from 1st Samuel Chapters 28 & 30

Then Saul said to his servants,
“Seek out for me a woman who is a medium,
so that I may go to her and inquire of her.”
His servants said to him, “There is a medium at Endor.”
1st Samuel 28:7

King Saul lay awake in bed, And as he tossed and turned, A fear grew deep inside of him, Because of what he learned.   His enemies were approaching, They were seeking to destroy. He had sent his sons to battle,  And was praying for his boys.   He had tried to do it his way, Now he couldn't hear God's voice.  So he sought the Witch of Endor, To help him make a choice.    She told him all his sons would die, And soon after he would too. Depression overcame him, He became despondent and withdrew.   The next day on the battle field, All his sons were laid to rest. The king ran out to grieve them  And was wounded in the chest.   So he laid his sword upon a stone, Fell onto it and died, And all of the events took place, Just as the Witch implied.
