I Love October ~

I love October . . .
with all its golden leaves
I love watching them flutter
to the ground upon a breeze.

Once brilliantly green,
dangling happily to a tree
now falling like snowflakes
to form a golden sea.

Fresh and crisp underfoot,
my feet love to walk . . .
on top of October’s path
so I can hear the leaves talk.

As summer drifts to sleep,
fall changes its golden color
and the full beauty of Autumn
unfolds all of its fiery wonder.

I love October . . .
with all its glorious leaves
I love how they remind me
to Jesus, I must always cleave!

Acts 11:23

“Who, when he came,
and had seen the grace of God,
was glad, and exhorted them all,
that with purpose of heart
they would cleave
unto the Lord.”

Autumn Blessings ~

Autumn brings the soul relief,
as hot Summer days slip to an end
God sent the season to weary hearts
so He can restore, repair and mend.

Just as with the Autumn winds,
there comes a new refreshing rain
God sent the season for fraying hearts
so they can mature, grow and gain.

Unlike the Autumn trees,
that shed their changing leaves
God sent the season for wary hearts
so to Him they’d adhere and cleave.

The Autumn sun is slow to climb,
dipping much earlier into the night
God sent the season for sleepy hearts
to rise, shine and awake in His light.

God gave to us the Autumn season,
so we could have a respite and rest . . .
for it is the season for our beset souls
to see how much we are truly blessed!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:9

“Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest
in hope.”

A Purpose Under The Son ~

Summer is but over,
shorter days are ahead
warm breezes will turn
to blistery ones instead.

Its fragrance has faded,
along with its sweet bloom
bright and sunny days
will soon be winter’s gloom.

But in the trees I can see,
Autumn leaves awaken . . .
as from their summer perch
they are rustled and shaken.

As they fall to the ground,
in heaps of gold and crimson
I’m reminded what in my Bible
about the seasons are written.

For under God’s heaven,
there’s a time for everything
whether it is the Fall of life
or the youthful time of Spring.

Each season God has a reason
a purpose under the sun
and eternity awaits for those
who find salvation in His Son!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 3:1-22

To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose
under the heaven:

The Color Of Things Coming ~

I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
drifting on the breeze of Autumn
floating idly to the ground.

They lay in all their splendor,
till rake piles them knee-high
for eye to see and foot to crush
before they wither away and die.

Fall reminds me of the colors,
of the things forthcoming . . .
when Jesus with a trump
declares He is returning.

His eyes will see those waiting,
eagerly for His return
while He crushes under foot
those who gave Him no concern.

As I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
I pray everyday I can turn . . .
just one sinner’s heart around!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 13:30

Let both grow together until
the harvest: and in the time
of harvest I will say to the reapers,
Gather ye together first the tares,
and bind them in bundles to burn
them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Hebrews 9:28

So Christ was once offered to bear
the sins of many; and unto them
that look for him shall he appear
the second time without sin
unto salvation.

The Face of Autumn ~

Lord it is time again,
to see the season change
to watch as Your beauty
the landscape rearrange.

So with wonder and awe,
I watch the face of Autumn
alter it’s many colors
ending Summer’s blossom.

Lord, it is time again,
to harvest the seeds sown
to see which ones for You
have ripened, matured and grown.

So with a grateful heart,
I gather up Autumn’s fruit
which over the span of time
have in You taken root.

Lord, it is time again,
for me to sit and reflect
how I can help to reach . . .
all those who You still reject!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 9:37-38

Then saith he unto his disciples,
The harvest truly is plenteous,
but the labourers are few;

Pray ye therefore the Lord
of the harvest, that he will
send forth labourers into
his harvest.

Jeremiah 8:20

The harvest is past,
the summer is ended,
and we are not saved.

Sticky Note to God ~10.11.19~


Son Bursts ~

son-bursts-christian-poetry-bydeborah-ann

Son light bursts,
through Autumn leaves
bringing rays of hope
to all who believe.

Light glowing down,
on the Truth and Way
Autumn time blooms
of a more restful day.

Son beams bursts,
into a golden hue
flickers of God’s glory
come glistening through.

The radiance reveals,
the light of one Man
unveiling the way
to salvation’s plan.

Son rays bursts,
through Autumn trees
peaceful reminders
of things awaiting me!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 1:3

“Who being the brightness
of his glory, and the
express image of his person,
and upholding all things
by the word of his power,
when he had by himself
purged our sins,
sat down on the right
hand of the Majesty on high:”

Just Around the Corner ~

just-around-the-corner-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Fall’s just around the corner,
I can feel it in the air . . .
cooler days and colder nights
will soon be Autumn’s fare.

The trees will start the magic,
of displaying their true beauty
just as if they knew . . .
it was their Autumn duty.

The flowers will begin to fade,
loosing their summer hue
as Autumn fingers spread
they’ll soon curl out of view.

The children’s outside laughter,
will slowly faint away . . .
as Autumn is their signal
there’s no more summer play.

Autumn is around the corner,
soon it will put on Fall’s vest
as God ushers in the season
bountiful with peace and rest!

“Return unto thy rest,
O my soul; for the Lord
hath dealt bountifully with thee.”

God’s Finger Painting ~

God's FInger Painting ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I love when God,
starts to finger paint
Autumn’s glorious colors
with no holds or restraint.

The colors splash about,
vibrant shades of orange-red
mingled with shiny slivers
of brilliant golden thread.

The streets begin to smear,
with crispy yellow leaves
as they do their wind dance
to moonless roads they cleave.

As the rain begins to fall,
the colors appear to run
smeared across the horizon
now hidden by the sun.

I love when God,
fingers begin their painting
they remind me of the glory
He has for me awaiting!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:23

“And the city had no need of the sun,
neither of the moon, to shine in it:
for the glory of God did lighten it,
and the Lamb is the light thereof.”

Autumn’s Greeting~

Autumn Greetings ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When Autumn comes to greet me,
God’s beauty is all I see . . .
trees once draped with green leaves
now wear their golden sleeves.

As Autumn’s days get shorter,
and the nights turn much colder
its full splendor begins to burst
and in its wonder, I’m immersed.

Autumn’s splendid grandeur,
turns me into a scenic voyeur
I find myself taking to the streets
to crush, crispy colored treats.

As Autumn breezes blow,
its like watching a ballet show
leaves spinning all around . . .
toes twirling on the ground.

Autumn paints a lovely picture,
reminding me of the scripture
it is to God ~ we must cleave
unlike the changing leaves!

“But cleave unto the Lord your God,
as ye have done unto this day.”

Unchangeable ~

UNCHAGEABLE ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

As Autumn shows its colors,
as it releases its golden hue
I am reminded why it is Lord
l’m so much in love with You.

As I watch the season change,
You my Lord, remain the same
I’m reminded of Your glory
when I say Your blessed name.

As Autumn’s breezes come,
trees shed their brilliant leaves
I am reminded just how much
in You Lord,  I trust and believe.

As  the first rains begin to fall,
causing rivers to rise and flood
I am reminded of my safe harbor
under Your Son’s precious blood.

The seasons they all are varied,
but Autumn is ever changeable
Lord,  I love it most because  . . .
it reminds me, You’re unchangeable!

“Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever thou hadst formed the earth and

The Color Of Things to Come ~

Fall leaves free photo on Creationswap by James Cronin

I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
drifting on Autumn’s breeze
floating, gently to the ground.

They lay in all their splendor,
till rake, piles them knee-high
for eye to see or foot to crush
as they wither away and die.

Fall reminds me of the colors,
of things that are yet to come
Jesus arriving in all His glory
to set up His eternal Kingdom.

His eye will see those waiting,
eagerly for His return
while He crushes under foot
those who gave Him no concern.

As I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
I pray everyday I can turn . . .
just one sinner’s heart around!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 5:19-20

“Brethren, if any of you do err from
the truth, and one convert him;

“Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner
from the error of his way shall save a soul
from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”

It’s Always Harvest Time ~

The Harvest used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Not just at harvest time,
do we need to have a reason
we can plant seeds of hope
in and out, of every season.

We can reap souls to Jesus,
no matter the time of year
it doesn’t have to be Autumn
harvest time, is always here.

Seeds of faith can be planted,
into the hearts of everyone
whether under snowy covers
or the warm blanket of the sun.

We can gather in the lost,
bring back a wandering soul
it doesn’t have to be Fall
for the harvest, God controls.

It’s always harvest time,
we don’t need to have a reason
we can sow seeds of eternal hope
in and out, of every season!

~~~~~~~

Luke 10:2

“Therefore said he unto them,
The harvest truly is great,
but the labourers are few:
pray ye therefore the Lord
of the harvest, that he would
send forth labourers into his harvest.”

I Love September ~

Fall leaves free photo on Creationswap by James Cronin

I love September . . .
with all its golden leaves
I love watching as they flutter
to the ground upon the breeze.

Once brilliantly green,
clinging happily to a tree
now they fall like snowflakes
forming a golden sea.

Fresh and crisp underfoot,
my feet love to walk
on top of September’s path
where leaf’s begin to talk.

As summer drifts to sleep,
fall changes its golden color
and the full beauty of Autumn
unfolds all of its fiery wonder.

Soon the rains will come,
damping my beautiful Autumn
and the fallen leaves will melt
into Winter’s chilly slumber.

I love September . . .
with all its fallen leaves
I love how they remind me
to Jesus, I must always cleave!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 11:23

Autumn brings to the soul relief,
as hot Summer days, slip to an end
God sent the season for weary hearts

Unlike the Autumn trees,
that shed their changing leaves
God sent the season for failing hearts

Just as with the Autumn winds,
there comes a new refreshing rain
God sent the season for fraying hearts
to increase, grow and gain.

The Autumn sun is slow to climb,
and dips much earlier into the night
God sent the season for sleepy hearts
to rise, shine and awake in His light.

God gave to us the Autumn season,
so we could have a respite and rest
for it is the season for our beset souls
