Today’s Bible Verse 19.05.2022
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. — James 4:7-8 (KJV)

A Friend

Where is a friend among mortals?

The six letter word;

elusive yet fondly used.

I have searched through the ages;

like a shadow with human flesh,

I find not.


Iniquity adorned with a grin;

Lonely and treacherous,

I fathom this abode.

Someone to rely on;

like a river in the desert,

I find not.


A roar echo as laughter;

king of the jungle a sheep present.

Venom disguised as milk,

a graceful hand to hold;

like oxygen in Mars,

I find not.


Spear served as turkey drumstick

Strife resident in the heart’s bunker;

mischief on auction sale.

A life bereft of pretence;

like summer in the arctic,

I find not.


Truth scarce to behold

self as billboard display.

The keeper of a brother;

like love in hell,

I find not.


Serenity resides with a friend,

integrity a way of life,

gentility like sunray beam,

kindness his trademark,

truthfulness the meal he serves.

Love is his name.

A true and trusted friend;

Like bliss in heaven,

I find in Jesus.


                                              In His grip,

Christmas! A fresh beginning for mankind

The precious breath to start anew

An excursion to redeem

To find and liberate the mislaid.


A reversal of time

Age and status jettisoned

The time to be like a child

Thinking, talking and loving as a toddler.


 The joy a manger kid brings

Godliness and innocence personified

The smile that disarms evil

A hug that is pure and true.


Sacrifice immeasurable

The gift to a depraved world

Benevolence undeserved

The love that ushered eternity.


Friendship unblemished

Taking nothing; giving everything

Sharing without strings

From a kind to a grateful heart.


Christmas is forgiveness exemplified  

A commitment to compassion

Serene presence of a soothing heart

The gift that gives ALWAYS.



                                                     In His grip,
