Rom 3: 21. 31 Lenten Day 9

All have fallen short
Justified freely by His grace
The law is for all

Circumcised or not; by faith
Jews and gentiles follow

I hope this inspires you to check
the scripture for yourself.

This is not supposed to replace
the Word of God; it’s only my poetic
interpretation.

It’s on the Bill

A cold pillow’s mint wrapper
Green and black, my lover’s heart
Betrayal’s sweet price abandoned
Taken with the bathrobes too

Be in tune as one
Smile and speak well of others 
Suffer for well doing

Being Forgetful

Caught in the act of forgetfulness
Our night starts at the setting sun
The movie, the dinner, the dancing
It’s right there at the tip of my tongue

The time spent together snuggling
On the porch swing with the yellow light
Talking about each other’s futures
Trying to remember with all of my might

The later the evening the cooler it gets
As the time nears closer to leaving
Here’s my name and number, may I have yours?
There I asked without being deceiving

Depression

Are we depressed for who we are
By our way of lifestyle and thinking
Or is our way of life determined
By our depression

Ephesians 2: 1-10 Lenten Day 6

Man defies Theos
But Theos’ merciful grace
Saves us through our faith

Not by us doing anything
Sits with Jesus in heaven
