The Humble Gardener

I love the humble gardener,
His hair unkempt,
Holes in his shirt,
So down to earth.

[I say, “How have you been?”
He answers, “Just trying to survive.”]

I had an uncle,
His teeth stained, some missing,
From smoking too much.
At least he was real —
Are we real?

The little people,
Struggling to survive,
Just to keep alive.

Do we know them?

There’s a Reason

There’s a reason for your suffering,
A purpose for your pain.
God’s forging new beginnings;
Your hurt is not in vain.

You may be in confusion,
Be tempted by despair,
But if you’ll keep on trusting,
No comfort can compare.

Your life is God’s creation;
His plan, it has no flaw.
And when His work is over,
You’ll stand in humble awe.

Remember you are clay now,
Or liquid metal made.
Each person finely crafted,
A creature now remade.

 

 

A Child Is Born

Bow down, bow down,

Your Savior now has come.

 

Look up, look up,

The angels’ song is sung.

 

So low, so low,

In circumstances born.

 

A child, a child,

A small and humble one.

 

He comes, He comes

To take away your sin.

 

Within, within,

Look in your heart for Him.

 

Rejoice, rejoice;

He takes away your sin.

Shrinking

Life — beyond my comprehension.
Am I from another dimension?
I give my acquiescence
To those of wiser ways.

Life seems at times nonsensical.
My mindset is impractical.
I go about within a daze
While others, nothing seems to faze.

There’s nothing accidental;
God’s plan sometimes impenetrable.
Yet through it all I see
He has a plan for me.

I must become so small
That it won’t hurt to fall.
So simple I must be,
And humbly I’ll be free.

Love is Calling

Love is patient,
Love is kind —
Let God’s love possess your mind.

Love’s not boasting,
Love’s not proud —
Let us sing His praises loud.

Love’s not jealous,
Love’s not rude —
With forgiveness it’s imbued.

Love rejoices
In the truth —
Love forever does endure.

Love doesn’t give up,
It doesn’t lose faith —
It’s never early, never late.

Always hopeful,
Always free —
Love is our true destiny.
