Children Who Go Errant!

growing-old-gracefully CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When did I become the child,
and my children the parent?
What has happened to me . . .
this phenomenon ~ I should inherit?

I am not old and senile,
I still have all my useful functions
but they act as if . . .
I left my caboose at the junction.

I can still form my words,
believe I know their meaning
but it seems that my every sentence
they are constantly screening.

I still remember my phone number,
can recall my home address
but to them you would think . . .
I’ve forgotten ~ how myself to dress!

I can brush and comb my hair,
even wash my face and hands
but they act as if . . .
I should be put out to the pasture lands.

How did I get so dim-witted,
as they became way too smart
who put this silly notion . . .
into their own aging heart?

When did I become the child,
and my children the parent?
Isn’t this what the Bible calls . . .
children who go errant?

if it be found in the way of righteousness.”

Silence The Night!

Silent Night used with permission IBible Verses

Silence the children
from singing the truth
omitting the words
so not to suffer reproof.

Don’t want to offend,
those who don’t believe
and for those who do . . .
this message receive.

Don’t sing of a Holy Infant,
or of a Virgin’s Birth
don’t tell us of a Savior
who came to this earth.

We don’t want to hear it,
don’t push it in our face
this gift that you call . . .
sweet saving grace.

Silence the Children,
silence the Pure Light
silence the Christ Jesus
silence the . . . Night!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is in response to an article I read
about how a school in Long Island
had the children sing a new version
of one of the most precious Christmas Hymns
“Silent Night”

Chosen By God ~

Chosen by God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

We are chosen by God,
handpicked for His Vine
to serve and worship Him
share in His glory divine.

We have been adopted,
embraced for His pleasure
a child of His mercy . . .
grace without measure

We’re being molded,
to be holy and blameless
into the image of Jesus
till we become flawless.

We are His possession,
He has great plans for us
into His mighty hands
we freely place our trust.

We live daily for Jesus,
to please and satisfy
no matter what we do
the Lord, we gladly gratify.

We are chosen by God,
an heir unto salvation
the Word is our living hope
our eternal foundation!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:4-6
King James Version

“According as he hath chosen us in him
before the foundation of the world,
that we should be holy and without
blame before him in love:

Having predestinated us unto the adoption
of children by Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good pleasure of his will,

To the praise of the glory of his grace,
wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.”

The Wise Still Seek Him ~

the-wise-still-seek-him-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The wise still seek Him,
they look to the Morning Star
they follow where He may lead
no matter just how far.

They come to praise Him,
to worship and adore
the wise still seek will Him
wherever they are.

The wise still offer Him,
gifts from their hearts
faith, trust and hope
on Him they impart.

They hunger and thirst,
after His righteousness
they seek the Life and Way
with wholeheartedness.

The wise still seek Him,
this Babe, the Child, their Savior
for they know He is God’s gift
of His love, mercy and favor!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:9-10

“When they had heard
the king, they departed; and,

lo, the star, which they saw
in the east, went before them,

till it came and stood
over where the young child was.

When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding
great joy.”
