The Bible

Ringing through this collections of poems is a great love for the Holy Bible, and a simple theme, that if the Bible is to have any meaning it has to be relevant to our present lives. There are many poems that take the reader to the heart of a Bible story, challenging one to consider the reality of what actually happened, – did Moses see a burning bush that was not consumed, were five thousand really fed from just five loaves and two fishes, was a violent tempest stilled? Were sin, disease and death really overcome? And interwoven with these Biblical accounts in verse or prose are other poems that show a searching out of thought and realisation that can be summarised in the simple knowledge that God is Love.

The earnest expectation is that for any reader any one of these poems may find for them an angel thought that brings comfort and healing, and whispers of God’s love. The lightest touch is all it takes for the gentle kiss of inspiration to overcome the direst circumstance and leave healing, peace and reconciliation.

No Comparison!

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.
Gen. 1:31 (to 1st .)

Comparison is a deadly sin
And those who do so can never win!
For better, the same, or some might say worse,
The belief in a diff’rence is a curse.
For all creation is good and pure
God made it perfect. What can be more?
For each idea grand, whether it’s big or small,
Is equally precious to infinite All.

Comparison is a deadly sin

For better, the same, or some might say worse,
The belief in a diff’rence is a curse.
For all creation is good and pure
God made it perfect. What can be more?
For each idea grand, whether it’s big or small
Is an integral part of Infinite All.

Which line is better? Now don’t compare
For God made each, and made each one fair.
If you like the one and not the other
How is your love for God, self and brother?
