Lord, Here Am I

by Angela Umphers Rueger

Lord, here am I to labor unrewarded,
To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown,
Unknown, unloved by all but my dear children,

God is…

by 50djohnson


september-23-2015-after-the-storm-065   May2015 133

When the storm clouds are all around me, and there seems no place to hide

My soul cries out to Jehovah God and I reach deep down inside.

For it is deep inside my soul I find provision everlasting

Knowing Jehovah Jireh is always ready to provide.

Through the laughter and the tears,

Standing forever by my side

Standing together, husband and bride.

My Heart Hurts

by 50djohnson


September 23, 2015 After the Storm! 075

The last few years have been strangely visited by the passing of so many friends, their parents, their spouses, their children, their best lifelong friends. When you go through such a loss it helps knowing you have friends, family, and God to turn to when the pain is overwhelming and just too much to bear.  However, there are many lonely nights where it is just you and God, sharing the burden of loss.

My Heart Hurts

Waking up this morning with life’s plans rolling along.

With children, family, and friends in their places where they belong.

Hearing that my cousin has cancer drove me to my knees in pain.

My friend called to say her granddaughter has a tumor on her brain.

Longing in my soul

by Rev Cheryl Birch


I hunger for something solid
A touch that soothes my soul
Genuine Presence of God
That fills up this “heart-hole”

Sure, I have salvation
My Savior is Everything
Yes, I have Spirit revelation
Joy of Him makes me sing

Still, there must be more than this

The Ire of God

by Richard Rensberry, author at QuickTurtle Books®

The Ire of God

Earl’s heart
like the rabbits and deer
gets its tides from the phases
of moon. As it wanes
all is quiet in the woods
and furrows.

Poetry Challenge: Easter poem


Shadow of a crown of thorns
high up on the wall
held there in a flickering light
sweetest thing I saw
Around me people quietly prayed
the Spirit, moving, felt
a whispered word, a silent prayer
shared as people knelt

Lost, found and kept

by Jem Croucher

sea 6

Lost to shouting seas
Found with murmuring ones
Kept upon a whisper
When the silence comes

Snatched when anger’s present
Gathered when it’s calm
Shared upon a whisper
When words become my psalm

Fields of yellow ochre

by Jem Croucher


In fields of yellow ochre
wandering, carefree as a cloud
drifting on a summer breeze
I felt a richness here endowed
The chalky soil beneath my feet
hard packed by days of sun
and through the haze the shine of sea
on this day that’d just begun

Sage Advice

by Rev Cheryl Birch


On vacation years ago on a 100 degree day in June
I was looking for something fun to do that afternoon
At the Tourist Info booth I stumbled upon a gnarly old man
He rocked back and forth in his chair; used his hat as a fan

I asked him what there was to do in his mountain town
He looked up at me and slowly knit his brow

Counting my blessings

by Jem Croucher

Groyne Two

Started counting my blessings
but the task it is tough
Soon ran out of fingers
two hands not enough
One for each friend
and there are many of those
Far more than my fingers
and even my toes

The Earthquake

by poetry and chocolate and books

And it keeps going on,

faster than before.

Racing one another,

pushing more further.

Our dreams and wishes,

are doubling the height of the Everest.

Never satisfied,

the greed is endless.

Planning one day like this,

and the next month like that.

We have the whole year planned,

the whole life is programmed.

Every second is chalked out.

Some plans made, some got cancelled.

Smiling and laughing,

deluded in our own world.

Two words

I don’t know how to come back to you
It’s been such a long time, you see
As I’ve not been living my life for you
But keeping it all back for me.

I want to feel pain
