I carved our initials in the Tree of Life.
What value has love in ‘death do us part?’
Is love a flash of light
in the long darkness of night?
 
Flesh to flesh in being born
then death without memory
unable to behold
to recall at will in deep detail.
 
Will thoughts become ashes
that are scattered in a soft wind?
My love to you dearest one
is forever more
upon the Tree of Eternal Life.
 
From the first garden
of eternal promise.
A promise of Love
never lost.
 
Love that is always remembered
in the heart of our Lord
that will never be lost
or forgotten
in the passing of time.

"Tears blocking my path"

“Tears blocking the sun of day”

I have walked through the waters of sorrow.
Tears blocking the sun of day
as I stumbled each step of the way.
 
My voice softened to a whisper of sound
in calling my Lord.
I am weary from pushing these feet
wanting to rest but cannot.
Was the answer I seek finally before me?
 
It was only when I finally gave up on me
and turned to thee
that the answer awaited me.
 
Only through sorrow and pain
can we know what Jesus gave us through His death.
Death of the mind
death of desire
death of worldly want.
 
Only then can we surrender to His will
and give up our own do we find Him
in the midst of eternal love.
A garment of light to carry us forward
so that we never will shed a tear again.

It was a movie I was watching.
The man was coming home.
He set his bags to side of the door
picked up a bicycle laying on the ground
before entering his home.
 
Though the door his family greeted him.
His wife running up to him
throwing her arms around his neck.
Next to her were his two children
a boy and girl about ages 6 and 7.
 
The scene brought a choking cry
in my throat in a deep realization.
My life was without children of my own.
 
I could not control the flowing tears
that slide down my cheeks silently
while my wife was involved in her computer.
 
So my dear reader
if your life is the man entering this door
be ever so thankful for the blessings
that are in your life.
This is one who would trade
places with you in a second.
