Love One Another (poem by me)

If you drive up in an beatup hoop-d, I’m gonna love you,
If our skin colors don’t match at all, I’m gonna love you,
Even if you turn away from me, I’m gonna love you still.

If you open your mouth and tacks fall out, I’m gonna be your friend,
If you wear a potato sack dress, I’m gonna be your friend,
Even if you stay on the couch all day, I’m gonna be your friend.

If your unfaithful spouse divorces you, I’m gonna sit with you,
If you get fired from your longstanding job, I’m gonna sit with you,
Especially if you become ill, I’m gonna sit with you.

I may not be Jesus, but I have His hands and feet,
That’s why…
I’m gonna love you,
I’m gonna be your friend, and
I’m gonna sit with you.
We’ll be together even after the end.

“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” —John 13:35

That One Friend (poem by me)

You say you don't know God
Haven't seen or heard Him
But you have a good friend
And he's a faithful Christian.

Here's the honest truth,
if you'll take the time to hear it,
The awesomeness in your friend
is God's Holy Spirit.

In your mind you do not know Him,
But Your heart has grown to love Him,
And your friend who has been so true
is God's Spirit loving you. 

"...the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, 
faithfulness, gentleness, self-control..."—Galatians 5:22-23

Balloons & Paperweights (poem by me)

You were a red balloon
floating up to the sky;
I was a paperweight,
who never said goodbye.

I admired the way
you never looked back;
You admired how steadily
I stood on that stack.

I guess that’s why
God caused us to meet,
so we could see each
one of us is truly unique.

Psalm 139:14 “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”
