I Love You

30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[a]31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31 NIV Whether you are a believer or not you have probably heard this commandment.

It Is Finished

Here is a poem I wrote that pertains to this holiday. Happy Easter everyone! It Is Finished Hammered onto a splintered board Strength that was hindered by love Thunder struck with a heavenly chord Once a shoulder perched a dove Now a place where sin is stored Forsaken by Him above What guilty hands have…
