Warts and All !

Kiss A Toad used with permission Doorpost Versers on Facebook
I kissed me a prince,
but ~ he turned into a toad
sent me packing . . .
down the lonely road.

So I went looking,
for my true love . . .
thought he’d be here on earth
instead, He came from above.

With all of my warts,
Jesus saw what was inside
my true love found in me
what other’s only denied.

He peered into my heart,
He looked deep into my soul
so I took a leap of faith . . .
and now I’m complete and whole.

If you are out there looking,
for a  Prince to  forever love . . .
then the moral to my story
is to ~ just look above!

1 Samuel 16:7
King James Version

“But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance,
or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him:
for the Lord seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

When I Consider ~

I Consider used with permision DoorPost Verses on Facebook

God, when I consider,
all that You’ve made
how the sun slowly rises
as the moon begins to fade.

I’m in awe,
of  all the beauty I see
in this amazing universe
You’ve set before me.

When I consider,
the trillion stars in the sky
hanging on the dark backdrop
placed so ever, ever high.

I’m in awe,
of the works of Your hand
in the heavens so far above
from down here where I stand.

When I consider,
the stars, moon and the sun
I know beyond them . . .
is Your Kingdom yet to come.

I’m in awe,
of the splendor of my view
starlit glimpses of eternity
when I’ll be home with You!

Psalm 8:3
King James Version

“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,
the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;”

Things, Things, Things!

Things, things, things . . .
they are everywhere
their causing me grief
misery and despair.

Things, taking up my time,
running my life too
things that are keeping me
from the “thing” I should do.

Things, cluttering up my mind,
taking over my thoughts
things people give me
things that I have bought.

Things, taking me from God,
spending more time with them
things ruining my relationship
idols God would condemn.

Things, things, things,
who needs them anymore
I’m getting rid of all the things
so that God ~ I’ll not ignore!
