FYC = “For Your Consideration”

Not for response (you’re welcome to) but that we think on things eternal.

The following (it seems) will need corrective measures in heaven. For lack of a better term I’m saying there’ll be changes in “personhood.” I haven’t the slightest doubt God can “arrange us” so we’ll be able to handle these: 

Mr. “A” makes heaven: his wife does not.   Mrs. “B” makes heaven: her husband does not.

Mr. & Mrs. “C” go to heaven: one or more child is lost.   Children from family “D” go to heaven: dad and/or mom are lost.

Friend “E” enters heaven: his/her life-long and best acquaintance never comes.

Fearfully, wonderfully made is true,

For the lad a-fork a burro’s back,

Who slept last night on a coffee sack,

In some poor, distant, Andes, ranch shack

It’s true for the bluest blood of you,

Aboard a yacht, who passively dine

On caviar, lobster, and old wine,

Always thinking of “me” “my” and “mine.”

Social animals of highest crust,

And dregs of men, smeared with labor’s dust,

Are all alike, all made in fearful ways,

Which ought (everyday) us to amaze.

It is no wonder that I love God;

Mere creature am I, of lowly sod.

The wonder is, Oh, that He loves me,

This Being who  f-i-l-l-s  eternity!

The desire to be holy WILL replace the desire to be worldly OR

The desire to be worldly WILL replace the desire to be holy.

Here” is the place for toys great, medium, or small,

“Here” is the arena for games of chance or of ball,

“Here” is the land for buildings spacious and tall,

‘Here” is where all the above stay.


There is, Thank God, beyond the blue clear,

Where the folly of all we’ve held so dear,

Will fully, honestly, in cheapness appear,

And live there is one grand, glorious Day.


There is a place where streets are made of gold,

A land where bodies and souls are never sold,    

The hope of the holy and at the same time bold,

The road to such serenity is called the Narrow Way.


Release your hold on fleeting toys of this short life,

Give in to God.  Give help to men.  Stop selfish strife.

Take your children, your siblings, your noble wife.

“You must be born again” and friend you also may!

You can try to glorify your own little name

“Prop it up” a minute (in your “moment” of fame),

Then turning, limp off life’s stage – increasingly lame.

But God’s name, anciently Past, Future, remains the same.

The couple that’s fallen under the devil’s sway –

Was it mutual, or did one lead the way?

And that one who pushed for the downward track,

Will he/she be the one to bring them back?
