Pray America

America, America – I love your Rockies and your high plains. I love your Great Lakes and your Smokies but I fear for your future. Pray America, pray as you have not prayed in decades, maybe a century.”

Endless shores

I want to step lightly from the bark we call life onto the endless shores of Eternal Life. Step lightly and with confidence. No, no, not confidence in myself (I’m so weak) but confidence in Him “…Who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Gal 2.20). AND a humble but honest confidence in the holy-bond-relationship between my illustrious Savior and my unworthy but believing soul.

What? No Body in the tomb?

Who ever heard the like?

Who can thus presume

That One has risen

That One is no longer dead long

Who ever heard that any successfully fled.

He is not here?

Why this is where they stopped the bier

This is where a sheet-bound Frame

From which such wondrous Words once came

This is where they laid It down,

And sorrowfully, slowly, slumped back to town.

This has to be the lonely spot.

Surely, I have not forgot

The roll of the land, the look of the vale,

This is the place, lifeless and stale,

That One precious Body came to rest.

(What other point on earth is so blest?)

But the tomb is empty, there’s no Body in the grave,

Whatever do you suppose? – –  –

Why, here are His grave clothes,

Here is the napkin they wound around His head

These are the items so know with the dead

But He, the One who briefly wore them

Is gone – you’ll have to store them.

He’ll never need graves clothes again

He left them low, He did ascend

He showed Himself – Many did Him see

Life gave way to eternity.

The One who came the lost to save

Has conquered sin, hell, and the grave!
