My True Love ~

Jesus, You are my Valentine,
my first love and eternal friend
You are my heart’s desire
my soul mate to the end.

You are the one I love,
every day of the year
Your love is the reason
today I am of good cheer.

Jesus, You are my Valentine,
my one and only true love
I cannot wait till we meet
in heaven one day above.

You gave me eternal hope,
Your grace is my daily gift
only lasting love like this . . .
can bring my spirit such a lift.

Jesus, You are my Valentine,
I know I am Yours too . . .
for there is no greater love
then the one I found in You!


Song of Solomon 2:4

“He brought me to the
banqueting house,
and his banner over me
was love.”

John 4:14

The Springs Of Life ~

The springs of life,
from your heart flow
so that more people
Jesus may know.

A fountain of hope,
an influence to all
to come and receive
salvation’s call.

Rivers of blessings,
for you to share
helping others to give
Jesus their care.

A life giving stream,
overflowing with love
right into Jesus . . .
from His Father above.

The springs of life,
hope’s eternal outpouring
for those who need
healing and restoring!


Proverbs 4:23

Keep thy heart with all diligence;
for out of it are the issues of life.

John 4:13-14

Jesus answered
and said unto her,
Whosoever drinketh
of this water shall
thirst again:

But whosoever drinketh
of the water that I shall
give him shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall
give him shall be in him a
well of water springing up
into everlasting life.

Sticky Note To God ~01.23.23~

John 3:15

God’s Earthen Vessels ~

We are jars of clay,
God’s earthen vessels
filled with His power
at all kinds of levels.

Power to open,
eyes that are blind
power to enlighten
the uninformed mind.

Power to proclaim,
to all the Good News
power to rise above
any opposing views.

Power to know,
when we need to be still
power to go and do
what is God’s perfect will.

God’s earthen vessels,
with His power infused
fragile clay jars . . .
by Him to be used.


2 Corinthians 4:7

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels, that the
excellency of the power may
be of God, and not of us.

The Love Of Jesus ~

The love of Jesus,
compels me to be
more aware of . . .
people who can’t see.

See the Life,
the Truth and the Way
nor hear what Jesus
has to tell and say.

The love of Jesus,
urges me on . . .
so to His compassion
others can be drawn.

Awakened to the hope,
the peace He brings
the strength He gives
to rise above all things.

The love of Jesus,
commands of me . . .
to tell His sheep
why from sin to flee!


1 Corinthians 9:19

For though I be free from all men,
yet have I made myself servant
unto all, that I might gain the more.

2 Corinthians 5:14

For the love of Christ constraineth
us; because we thus judge, that if
one died for all, then were all dead:

Revelation 3:20

Some People Needlessly Worry ~

Some people needlessly worry,
they perspire and fret
for their past sins . . .
they still stew and sweat.

They wonder if they are,
really saved at all
even after they received
salvation’s saving call.

Some people need to have,
assurance every day
that the debt for their sins
Jesus willingly died to pay.

They are not yet convinced,
though they have repented
that for their past sins . . .
they needn’t be tormented.

Some people needlessly worry,
when they should embrace
investing all their faith . . .
into Jesus’ saving grace!


1 John 5:11-13

And this is the record,
that God hath given to us
eternal life, and this life
is in his Son.

He that hath the Son hath life;
and he that hath not the Son
of God hath not life.

These things have I written unto you
that believe on the name of the
Son of God; that ye may know that
ye have eternal life, and that ye may
believe on the name of the Son of God.

Every Day Is CHRISTmas ~

Every day is CHRISTmas . . .
if the Gift you receive
every day is a present
if the Gift you’d believe.

Each day you are offered,
the true Gift from above
each day you can decide
to accept God’s Gift of love.

Every day brings new life,
if the Gift is in yours
every day is a miracle
if the Gift you’d explore.

Every day there is peace,
if you would ask the Gift in
for the Gift of eternal life . . .
will come and live within.

Every day is CHRISTmas . . .
if in Jesus you believe
every day is a present
if God’s Gift you’d receive!

Have a Joyous CHRISTmas

Christ In Us ~

Christ in us,
with us always
be it the good
or the bad days.

A promise to us,
never to leave
when onto Him
we faithfully cleave.

Christ in us,
til the world’s end
sticking by us
just like a friend.

A truth to behold,
to hide in our heart
knowing from us
He’ll never depart.

Christ in us,
oh, what a blessing
a truth into which . . .
we must keep pressing!


Matthew 28:20

whatsoever I have commanded you:

Get Right With God ~

If you want to get,
with God right . . .
you’ll need with sin
to put up a fight.

For your wickedness,
will keep you apart
unless you turn over
to God your heart.

If you want to be,
for your sins forgiven
the life you now live
you need to stop liven.

For the evil things,
that you now do
can no longer be
a part of you.

If with God you want,
to get things right
ask Jesus in your heart
right now tonight!


Romans 10:9

That if thou shalt confess
with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him from

Keeping My Eyes Alert ~

I’m keeping my eyes,
set on Jesus’ coming
tis why this faith race
I keep on running.

For I want to be,
one of the first to see
Jesus in the clouds
coming for me.

I’m keeping my eyes,
watching for the signs
listening to the rumbles
of these the end times.

For I yearn to be,
with my Lord and Savior
and to be with Him
in the land of forever.

On Jesus’ next coming,
I’m keeping my eyes
for He is to me . . .
the real true prize!


Philippians 3:14

I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.

On This Thanksgiving Day ~

On this Thanksgiving Day,
I am so thankful for . . .
the Bread of Life
who opened to me the door.

And now today I sup,
at the table of His kindness
my soul He nourishes
as I feast upon His goodness.

A heaven sent like manna,
full of God’s mercy and favor
is the love and grace
of Jesus Christ my Savior.

My hunger pangs no more,
my thirst He quenches. . .
now that the Holy Spirit
my heart entrenches.

On this Thanksgiving Day,
I feast on the Bread of Life
who fills me with the peace
of a blissful afterlife!


John 6:35

And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me
shall never hunger;
and he that believeth on me
shall never thirst.

the longing soul,
and filleth
the hungry soul

This Lowly Body ~

One day this lowly body,
will be transformed
no longer by sin effects
will it be deformed.

It will be like Jesus,
beautiful and glorious
it will rise with Him
jubilant and victorious.

One day this lowly body,
will be made whole
no longer will satan be
gunning for my soul.

I will have a new one,
when Jesus comes again
no longer this vile body
will I have to restrain.

One day this lowly body,
will be totally sin free . . .
when in the clouds
with Jesus I go to be!


Philippians 3.21

Who shall change our vile body,
that it may be fashioned like
unto his glorious body,
according to the working
whereby he is able even to
subdue all things unto himself.

Matthew 24:30

And then shall appear the sign
of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes of
the earth mourn, and they shall
see the Son of man coming in
the clouds of heaven with
power and great glory.

God’s Forgiveness Plan ~

God’s forgiveness plan,
you need never doubt
when on His name
you contritely call out.

For He hears the cries,
of a heart regretful
for no sin to Him . . .
is too dire or dreadful.

God’s forgiveness plan,
is just a breath away
when you confess your sins
He’ll make clear the way.

For you to receive,
His mercy and grace
when you penitently seek
His forgiving face.

God’s forgiveness plan,
is for one and all
all it takes is for you
on Jesus’ name to call!


1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,

On Christ alone,
my mind is set,
so closer to Him,
my heart can get.

For He is the One,
who has saved me,
giving me the hope,
for what I can’t see.

In Christ alone,
my faith clings,
for by His grace,
salvation brings.

He is my Savior,
God’s eternal plan,
His love filled in,
the empty span.

On Christ alone,
my redemption lies,
my eyes He keeps . . ,
fixated on the prize!


Acts 4:12

Neither is there salvation

Earthly Treasures ~

When we treasure more,
things that are worldly . . .
we will look upon them
ever so warm and fondly.

For they brings to us,
such joy and delight
that we don’t notice
how they dim the Light.

When earthly treasures,
our hearts takeover . . .
our pride and egos
we often will fall over.

For we cannot see,
past their seduction
to notice our own
spiritual corruption.

When we treasure,
things of the world more . . .
the fact that they’ll erode
we must not ignore!


Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
break through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves treasures
in heaven, where neither moth nor
rust doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is, there will
your heart be also.

Matthew 7:21

One Glorious Surprise ~

There is no one,
who has ever seen
nor anyone who’s eyes
have been able to glean.

What God has in store,
for those who believe
the crown of life . . .
one day they’ll receive.

There is no one,
who has ever heard
nor who’s imagination
has been so stirred.

What God has in store,
for those who wait
to enter into heaven
through the pearly gate.

No one’s ears have ever heard,
no one has seen with their eyes
but, I believe His sheep are in . . .
for one big, glorious surprise!


Isaiah 64.4

For since the beginning
of the world men have not heard,
nor perceived by the ear, neither
hath the eye seen, O God, beside
thee, what he hath prepared for
him that waiteth for him.

1 Corinthians 2:9

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard, neither have entered
into the heart of man, the things which
God hath prepared for them that love him.

God’s Finger Painting ~

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 a brilliant golden thread.

As the rain begins to fall,
the colors appear to run
smeared across the horizon
as the clouds hide the sun.

The streets get all blotted,
with crispy yellow leaves
as they do their wind dance
to soggy roads they cleave.

I love when God,
fingers begin their painting
it reminds me of the glory . . .
He has for me awaiting!


Jeremiah 5:24

Neither say they in their heart,
Let us now fear the Lord our God,
that giveth rain, both the former
and the latter, in his season: he
reserveth unto us the appointed
weeks of the harvest.

Mark 8:35

Jesus Is My Rock

Jesus is my sure Rock,
my solid Foundation
on which I have based . . .
my eternal salvation.

He is the Cornerstone,
of my faith and hope
daily His grace gives me
the strength to cope.

Jesus is my Fortress,
it’s onto Him I hold
only by His power
am I fearless and bold.

He is the Protector,
of my heart and soul
tis why over my life
I give Him the control.

Jesus is my Stronghold,
onto which I cleave . . .
and soon on the clouds
with Him I will leave!


Psalm 62:6

He only is my Rock
and my salvation:
he is my defence;
I shall not be moved.

Walking After The Spirit ~

Those who are walking,
after the Holy Spirit . . . .
are those who one day
will heaven inherit.

For the lusts of the flesh,
they have put to bed
now that they’re willing
to be by Him led.

Those who continue to walk,
after that which is holy
are those who have given
to Jesus their hearts wholly.

For they confessed their sins,
and have been transformed
now to the world and its way
they’re no longer conformed.

Those walking in the Spirit,
in Christ are accepted
they’ll be not condemned
nor in heaven rejected!


Romans 8:1

There is therefore now no
condemnation to them which
are in Christ Jesus, who walk
not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.

Life can be burdensome,

Life can be frightful,
painfully sorrowful . . .
but, Jesus promised us
a life more hopeful!

Peace I leave with you,

Embracing The Cross ~

Everyday we need to be,

each day we should be
like Jesus behaving.

We need into His image,
keep on transforming
and to the world ways
stop being conforming.

Everyday we need to be,
grace and love’s reflection
so with the unsaved
we can make a connection.

We need to resemble,
Jesus’ saving light
so in man’s foolish heart
our hope will shine bright.

Everyday we need to be,
to the cross adhering
so more can be ready
for His next appearing!


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

into his harvest.
