A Billion Years Ago

Iron oxide rose

The ground heaved and belched *

Rocky Mountains form

 

* “And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so.” (Genesis 1:7).

O Death, Where Is Your Sting!

We say so long to our beloved friend today. We shall meet again in God’s Heavenly Courts. The doctors gave her eight months to live. She lived another eighteen years. Yes, she grappled with multiple symptoms over the years, but by and large, the cancer did not claim victory over a happy, productive, godly life. Praise the Lord!

Three Haiku

To commemorate the first measurable snow in Owosso, Michigan this season, I give you the haiku “Snowbound.”

Just an inch of snow  
Which melts unless Hell freezes
It lay until March




From Molly the Australian Shepherd, who rarely poses or smiles for a picture, she gives you her Halloween party haiku, “I Am Batman.”

I celebrate me
Passive Riddler and Joker
Under my control

Lastly, Molly gives you “Alpha.”

My canine nature
To either kill or love you
Life is not your own


"You are not your own. You were bought with a price.
So glorify God in your body" (1 Corinthians 6:19, 20).
