You silly old fool,
It's got nowhere to float!
But Noah just smiled,
And kept building the boat.

You fool he'd said,
My wife's well past it,
Abraham remembered and smiled,
At Isaac in his basket.

You fool they cried,
You've led us to the slaughter.
But Moses just raised his hands
And parted the Red Sea water.

Who's the fool in command
Who sent us parading around?
But Joshua just smiled
As the walls of Jericho came down.

You stupid young boy!
Don't you know you can't win!
But David just smiled
As he loaded his sling.


Stupid old man
Playing with your words and your verses!
But I just smile and keep writing,
The Lord'll handle the blessings and the curses.

We're all just fools for the Lord
With faith in things unseen.
Doing things unheard of,
Achieving things undreamed.

Just something to mull over while I get myself organised and settled in here.

Hi DJ had some time tonight to check some
of your poetry and I this one is a jewel
very inspiring and I do see what you mean
by our writing somewhat alike. I will be
checking out more of your poems and thank you
for your warm and encouraging comments.
Is it not better to be a fool for God, than
a nut for the devil(smile) keep being inspired..

In Gods Love
