An Autumn Sketch

Tonight the rain comes pattering on my roof, It taps as would a prancing horse’s hoof. All day the leaden sky foreboded rain, The thirsty earth had waited long in vain. The bronzed leaves strewn thickly everywhere Are now a sodden mass, with trees left bare. How drearily the autumn trudges on, The days are somber, grey, […]

God’s Word – What’s It Saying?

What’s happening in the CRC—is anyone aware? Or maybe, we’ve been lulled to sleep—does anyone care? Whatever the case, lack of concern, thought or feeling, It’s not only our church, but God’s Word, with which we are dealing.   So much controversy over what used to be so clear, About how we interpret the Bible, […]

Grace

Life is filled with struggles, each day a brand new test. We learn new things from others while striving for our best. In competition always, we often come up short, Whether failing on a test, or losing on the court.   Excellence is hard to find, while trials seem to stay. And when we need […]

Roses by the Garden

As I watch them everyday, So beautiful and red, But growing so slow I say. Today I saw the blossom, Tomorrow I’ll see the bloom. I’ll also see the roses, By the garden as beautiful As anything can be. Finally I’ll get to see them, All grown and red I’ll get to see. I’ll only […]
