Let's Drive

Let's Drive
No a/c today but natural air
Let's head towards the country
On these old back roads

Still so much to see
Trees, plains, bladed grass, armadillo's
Taking their slow poke time
Beautiful sights of nature all around

Over there use to be a barn
Where we would purchase eggs
Not just any ole eggs
but preferred genny eggs
I can taste them now in my mind

The radio station playing without a static

Not one song about fighting, bitterness or hate
Not one song about cheating,
Hurting a child
Or abusing your spouse male or female

Not one song about nudity
Disrespecting mom or dad
Not one song about bullying
Road rage or attacking teachers

Long stretch of road
See railroad tracks ahead
Train coming
From far, far away

Not a cloud in the sky
The creeks have almost dried
Another car passes by
We all smile and wave

Let's Drive!

The Twilight of Life

Remember your Creator,
Throughout the days of your youth;
Before an instigator,
That evil makes it uncouth.

I have no pleasure in them,
Before the light of the sun;
That darkened clouds would condemn,
After what the rain has done.

In the day when the keepers,
Of the house what would tremble;
Strong men become grim reapers,
The grinders will assemble.

Those looking through the windows,
Will be keeping their doors locked;
Because what God only knows,
Where the wicked men have flocked.

When the grinding sound is low,
One rises to hear the birds;
And the daughters sing below,
Thinking of the holy words.

They are fearful what is high,
And terrors are in the way;
Hearing of their mournful cry,
As sin seeks to make them stray.

The almond tree shall flourish,
The ant shall drag its dead weight;
People go home to nourish,
Mourners waiting for their fate.

The silver cord is snapped,
The golden bowl is broken;
As a person is entrapped,
And told when God has spoken.

The dust returns to the earth,
The spirit returns to God;
That has been given new birth,
Erased where they had been flawed.

Vanity of vanities,
All is vanity as said;
Life of humanities,
From birth until you are dead.

WITH THE LORD ( The Ameri- Sonnet Style )

Have A Very Lovely Day!

~ With The Lord ~
( Ameri* Sonnet )



Gods planning some great for you.
Right now He is at your side.
Nothing hard for our Father too.
In grim times He'll be our guide.


Keep always your Faith and Hope.
Give your problems to God, see.
He'll rescue you, help you cope.
With Him, only good can be.


He knows us all, cares for you.
The best for us has in mind.
God loves us all, and that's true.
Seek, and God's grace each day find.


Read God's Word, and truly grow.
Jesus can save us, that's so.

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)

*'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 (NIV)

* Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer
Romans 12: 12 ( NIV )

*The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.'
Exodus 14: 13 ( NIV )

*For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this World, against spiritual
wickedness in the high places.
Ephesians 6:12 (NIV)

* I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4: 13 ( NIV )

*This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that

*What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
Matthew 16:26 (NIV)

1. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.

3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good.

4. Traitors, heady, high*minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.

5. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

~2 Timothy 3 * 5 * King James Version (KJV) ~

*Read: Matthew 24: 1*50


A salvation prayer, known by many Christians as a 'Sinners Prayer,' is a prayer one would say to repent from sin, ask God for forgiveness, confess belief in Jesus Christ, and accept him as Lord and Savior. Saying a salvation prayer is the first step in your personal relationship with God.
If you believe the Bible offers truth about the way of salvation, but you have not taken the step to become a Christian, it's as simple as praying this prayer. You can pray by yourself, using your own words. There is no special formula. Just pray from your heart to God, and he will save you. If you feel lost and don´t know what to pray, here´s a salvation prayer that you can follow:

Dear Lord,
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don´t please you. I have lived my life for myself only. I am sorry, and I repent. I ask You to forgive me.
I believe that You died on the cross for me to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to You now and ask you to take control of my life; I give it to You. From this day forward, help me to live every day for You and in a way that pleases You.
I love you, Lord, and I thank You that I will spend all eternity with You.

If you have just prayed this prayer, congratulations!:))

You have received Christ as your Savior and have made the best decision you will ever make´one that will change your life forever!



~Behold, children are heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward'.
Psalm 127:3

Abortion is MURDER! Please people, Do Not Kill a Baby!

~There are times when all that we have left is to pray to God.~

~ ' Let Love be without dissimulation . Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. ' ~
* Romans 12:9

~ My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
* Luke 1: 46*47 *

* Mark Twain *

~Author's Notes:



* Thought Of The Day *


* 1 John 2:15*17*

John warns us not to love the world or the things in it. But what is the world? The apostle isn't talking about the material realm, so there's no need to deprive ourselves of everything we enjoy in life. Rather, he is reminding us that every good desire can be perverted by sinful longings and pride.

The nature of the world system is seen in the behaviors, attitudes, and ambitions of our culture:

Immorality. Our society seeks to gratify lust in ways that God has forbidden. Immorality has even entered our homes through the internet and television.

Greed. The culture is driven by a desire for wealth, material possessions, fame, and power´and some people lie, cheat, steal, or kill to get what they want.

Pride. People are lovers of self and want to be seen as better than others. It's common today to portray oneself falsely on social media in order to be admired.

Despite the sinful condition of our culture, we shouldn't be discouraged. God is greater than the world's power to entice, and His purposes aren't thwarted by sin. He is able to guide us through the darkness as we trust and follow Him.

By Dr. Charles Stanley.


What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will give us later.

´ Romans 8:18 (TLB)*

Father, help me to go beyond the afflictions and tribulations of our age, and to look toward the inheritance reserved for us in heaven.

By Evangelist Dr. Billy Graham


*Reflect & Pray *

There's no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to
do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

*1 John 4: 18

When do you find yourself feeling pressured to believe fear is greater than love? How might your relationships with others change if you believed you don´t need to be afraid?

Loving God, thank You for Your Love. Help us to trust in and follow Your Light and Love even when the way gets dark.


~Prayer Of The Day*

*Lord Jesus, as You sat looking over Jerusalem, You wept.
Give me the same compassion for those who have not accepted Your remedy and been BORN AGAIN.

~Today's Reflection~


* Bless is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
*Jeremiah 17:7

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."

* Abraham Lincoln *

"Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now."

* Alan Lakein *



James Webb Telescope

Will event of creation be revealed
By the James Webb telescope
Concentrating time
Like a kaleidescope?
Galaxy after Galaxy
Slowly being revealed.
Will the moment of Creation
Always remain concealed?
Will we ever see the glory
Of the birth of timespace,
Can James Webb ever show us
Creation taking place
Or will that event remain
Tantalisingly out of sight
So no Theory of Creation
Can ever be proved right?
Is the James Webb Telescope
Just a step too far
Should we not accept
We are what we are.
Just because we can
Doesn’t alway mean we should
Maybe sometimes a mystery
Can be for the common good.
Should the thirst for knowledge
Remain achingly unsated
Do we really need to know
How such beauty was created? Are we unique sentient beings
Set here to record and investigate
Or an accident of nature, by chance
Unable to accept our inevitable fate?
James Webb Telescope enables us
To less blindly search, to grope
towards an understanding that may
Give our species future survival hope.



West is Best

West is Best

The old saying, ‘Nero fiddled while Rome
Burned,’ is as true today as it was then.
Promises that barely bear fruit, vital
Decisions made on the hoof to please
Supporters, scant attention paid to what
Might be waiting in the wings and more to
The point, what might be the long*term
Consequences of handing intellectual
Property, work and domestic livelihoods,
Over to a country and people directly
Opposed to democracy.

The scale of this mistake is becoming
Clear clear and impossible to deny who
It was funded the mighty war machine
Now railed against us, we did.

Look round your home to find kettles,
Coffee machines, toasters, food Mixers,
Food processors, knives, forks, spoons,
Music systems, iPhones, computers,
Modems, light bulbs, light fittings, dogs
Toys, children’s toys, games, garden tools,
Kitchen utensils, and now cars, and the
List goes on, feeding a vast war machine
With every penny/cent spent.

In light of a clear and present danger,
Surely now is the time for decisive
Action, action that will put matters of
Western Safety, Sovereignty and
Productivity first.

Bring the work and jobs home, build new
Super*efficient factories powered by home
Made solar panels, home made electronics,
Home made semiconductors, ending the
West’s reliance on cheap prices that cost
Us dear. Make everything we need at home,
Lower shipping costs, less pollution, more
Local productivity. Yes, there may be a slump
But it will pass as new plants are established
And new jobs come on stream and let’s not
Forget, this is a nettle the West will have to
Grasp one day * so why not Now?

The Ghost Ship Mary Celeste

The Ghost Ship Mary Celeste

The merchant ship "Mary Celeste" had set sail
in the year 1872,
from a harbor based in Staten Island, New York,
with her captain and seven*man crew.

Captain Briggs, accompanied by daughter and wife,
were all Genoa, Italy*bound;
Only one month at sea, and the ship was adrift
off of Portugal, where she was found.

The Dei Gratia discovered the Mary Celeste,
who was lifeless of captain and crew.
Judged fully intact and in worthy condition,
once searching her all the way through.

The cargo was barrels of pure alcohol,
for enhancing Italian fine wines.
No barrels were missing, according to logs,
as were no other scandalous signs.

The lifeboat was missing, which added more scrutiny
to an already*growing ghost story.
The mystery would enter the maritime annals,
filed under the "True" category.

The Mary Celeste would be brought to Gibraltar
to collect the ship's due salvage pay,
pending further probes into the legal proceedings,
ruling out any chance of foul play.

The ghost ship had suffered a shadowy past,
under multiple owners and names;
a two*ship collision and running aground
by the ship's captain, who was to blame.

The mystery continued into the next centuries,
with no further clues to be found.
The fate of the lost souls remains a closed book,
be they kidnapped, or shipwrecked, or drowned.

"It is said that some people are jinxed from the start,
being doomed from the day of their birth,
whereas ships can likewise bear a similar fate,
being cursed at the launch from their berth.''




check yourself

check yourself fool
check your judgement
check yourself by judging yourself
pride yourself by judging yourself
pride yourself by judging your judgement
respect yourself is by judging yourself
respect your pride is by judging your pride

to fool yourself is to check yourself
to fool yourself is to respect yourself
respect is to honor yourself
to honor yourself is to honor your respect
judgement is a pride of honor
judgement is a pride of checking yourself
to fool yourself is to pride yourself

a fool check himself
a fool fool himself
pride yourself to fool yourself
pride yourself to honor yourself
pride is priding yourself
honor is honoring yourself
check is checking yourself

author notes : my writing is called philosophical writing. i only uses middle ages words,words from the renaissance for
instance words liked gracious,extravaganza,etc. this poem is about to check yourself is to check your
pride. i don´t add capitalization´s on my writing.





We are the politicians.
Do not believe what we say,
Do not ever trust us.

Once I was pro*life and
Trump was pro*killing babies.
We changed our colours
And changed our tunes.
Now I am the baby killer and
he pretends to be pro*life.

We are the opportunists
And we have no morality.
Our religion is politics and
Our aim is to be in power.

If you think we are saints
Then change your glasses
And use the X*ray vision
To see our true selves.
