A SOLDIER’S FAREWELL

A SOLDIER’S FAREWELL_ICON.jpg

 

A soldier’s farewell

Heaven’s gain

Hearts broken

Words unspoken

A heavenly welcome

For a job well done

Great rejoicing in heaven

But the hearts of mortals are heavy

A hurricane of memories

The pain in our hearts…

…oh the pain!

Earth’s loss

Heaven’s gain

To serve in the flesh  no more

But to be with The Father forever

A soldier’s farewell

A great story to tell

Troubled hearts, “It is well”…do not sorrow

For we will see him in the morrow

Take heart

Wash away the pain

With thoughts of the gain

Weep not again

Cos’ a soldier never dies

A soldier always lives

Because He lives

SHE NEEDED A DRINK

SHE NEEDED A DRINK_photo_medium.png

 

She needed a drink

She needed to quench this thirst

The bartenders were nowhere to be found

She had too many dependents

They all looked up to her for everything

The burden was much

But she never complained

She gave

She gave

She gave

She never complained

 She never spoke a word until today

 “I need a drink!” She croaked

Her throat was dry and sore

Her skin was dry and parched

She needed a drink badly

So she prayed

And she waited

Oh! She waited!

A drink for one…or maybe for all

A drink for a minute…or maybe an hour

So, she looked up

She knew they would show up

They always did!

And there they were

As dark as they could possibly be

They were heavy and so beautiful

She could sense the intimacy

It was powerful

They reached out and grabbed each other’s hands

They were all so in-love

The bartenders appeared

A perfect sight

They hugged

They kissed

They cried

Tears of joy

The great reunion

She knew her prayers had been answered

She closed her eyes and savored every drop

She opened her pores

She took it all in

The sweet liquid flooded her senses

Oh! What a relief!

Mama Earth was glad once again

She asked

She prayed

And now she drank

The rain washed her thirst away

Mama Earth drank

Yes! She drank!

Drunk and happy she was
