I could just see Pete's determination for controlling that ornery horse. But I guess he got 'em in the end. Great story.

Donna, "I don't know where you came from, 'cause I don't know where you've been, but it really doesn't matter, grab a" pen and start your chatter, and I will listen in!
You have expressed so clearly the longings to serve God's special people, who can be found in nursing homes or neighborhoods, at free dinners and in Pregnancy Care Centers, and so many places. They don't know they are waiting for your love, but they know it when you come.

Ones life is seldom exposed inside out. Lovely characterization of a humble human.

This is a compelling poem about your encounters with Jesus. I love the way you relate it as personal experience. There is so much revealed about the heart of the Savior...it touches my heart as I read.
I noticed especially the compassion of Jesus in this line, "He looks at me and through our tears forgives the thing I've done." That's the Jesus I love, the one who shares my tears!

What a lovely romp! What if all the wasted hours spent in taverns wasting money had been put to good use, this country would be in the twenty third century! Love the vernacular and the whole darn poem.

The grieving reaches out through this poem and draws me in to grieve with you. I pray for you tonight and ask God to bless and comfort you.

Timely write, and so true of how we treat your earth today, which is a gift from God...well done.

Lovingly and beautifully written. I thought of my cousin, who came home one day to find her son, twenty-five years old, dead on his bed with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

I'm afraid we can't wait for God to save the wild places, the brooks and streams. We must do it ourselves if we are going to live on this Eden, our Earth.
