While I'm not fond of continuous biblical references, a very fine poem on the subject everyone can relate to.

GOD bless you, Brother Ron! You've sure blessed me with your response.. my siblings and I & our families have spent the last 9 months watching our mother dismantle her home, sell or give away her possessions, until, finally, we got her firmly settled into a lovely Assisted Living Facility. She is 85 and it's her first Christmas away from the rest of us. Of course, we have all been there to see her and share Christmas, but I am eternally grateful to you and those like you who choose to visit for their sakes, bringing cheer and hope, and renewed life. There have been several churches, schools, and business groups participate with special programs and we have all been delighted to see Mama and her new friends' joy!
Sadly, her sister, my Aunt Vesta 82, is in the hospital in grave condition from a UTI that was let go too long because her husband, Uncle Mike, 89, had no one to care for him if she was absent. So many seniors are met with this dilemma! He is now placed in the V-A Hospital 30 miles away, and is in good hands, but it is heart-wrenching for us.
Again, like yourself, even as a child I was drawn to the elderly and could often be found among them, just sitting at their feet.. listening.
Thank You for the love you pour out to others, Ron. Merry Christmas in its truest sense!
Be A Candle (Poetry) - 12/25/2014 10:14:00 AM
I live alone and find it just fine. But I did light up a rather somber Christmas dinner at a assisted living home the other night with loved ones present for the party by spontaneously breaking into Christmas carols. I was pleased to hear so many joining me after only speaking softly so as to hardly be heard. Those elderly being assisted, if they didn't have difficulty hearing, probably enjoyed the singing the most.
Not necessarily at this time of the year, but as a younger man and being highly mobile, I often sought out elderly family, friends, and former workmates who were living alone for good conversation, mentorship, and wisdom.

Hi Rhonda Ever so nice hearing from you. Love your poem dragging. Well OK! I/m still around at 92 and going strong at Camelot of Broussard. Can't give up keep trucking along even tho feet hurt, using a cane and sometimes walker. Remember me to that brother and say, Let's hear from you also. Still in love, is he? Marguerite Little Flower

Good to hear from the young ones, but you have been gone so long and I have missed your endearing poetry. The Beatles were a blip in my hectic life, but not so in many million others. I loved the message they brought in their poetic music.

I love this, Rhonnie! What a testimony to God's grace, when His servants are led to minister and share the living Word with those who are down and out.
How beautiful are the feet of those who share the gospel of Christ!

As a U. S. Navy veteran of the Korean War conflict and as a thankful citizen of our great country, I thank you, dear Rhonda, for your thoughtful posting of "FREE, INDEED." Freedom is worthy fighting for, no matter the cost.
With respect and admiration,

Wonderful salute to those who fought and died for their Country. God bless us all.
Big Children (Poetry) - 5/14/2013 7:39:37 AM
Yes, the children are our future and must be nurtured well.
Those that live out their failed lives through their children are a concern of mine. And for those children who excel with or without their parents' permission, I applaud.
There is talent and genius in every one. Parents should not decide what that should be. Only the inner voice of the child should be listened to.
Big Children (Poetry) - 5/13/2013 11:45:35 AM
The human mind is not programed to receive abuse and neglect at any age but especially the little ones who cannot grasp the why of it.
Well done Rhonda.
Big Children (Poetry) - 5/13/2013 10:14:05 AM
Being afraid to love is indeed a consequence that stems from abuse and neglect, it is not a shortcoming of children, large or small. Very insightful, Rhonda, and told with honesty.
Big Children (Poetry) - 5/13/2013 8:24:10 AM
depending on the how of when they were little you are exactly right
They Shall Call her Blessed (Poetry) - 5/12/2013 10:14:33 AM
The “blessing” bestowed on the poor woman in this poem is to be forever relegated to “woman's work” as carefully defined by men to be subservient and, somehow, grateful for the life of slavery to men.
Sorry, but I am upset about the “tradition” of women being subservient.
They Shall Call her Blessed (Poetry) - 5/12/2013 9:56:18 AM

Today, The Sun Yawned (Poetry) - 8/12/2012 10:26:40 AM
Sometimes poetry, though beautiful, is hard to understand what's being said. Yet this one was so real, and I could feel God's spirit. I've come to enjoy reading poetry, thanks for this one.
BirdSong (Poetry) - 5/16/2012 9:41:27 AM
Dearest Rhonda...It's thoughtful of you to think so warmly of those men in "motherly" roles. It can't be easy for them since they were not created for that role. May I be so bold as to include "step" mothers, too; for this breed, there are no "Happy Step-Mother Day" cards.
May I suggest that the scattered layout of your poem probably expresses best the confusion some men feel in the role of motherhood! :)
Very nice write, my friend!
Love and Hugs,
BirdSong (Poetry) - 5/15/2012 8:56:21 AM
Wonderful way to look at this. I work with kids in grades 11-12 I see a lot of this and it is so sad
BirdSong (Poetry) - 5/15/2012 7:35:15 AM
Hey don't worry we know how it goes at times you don't even recognize your work after you post it to the den. Who knows why it's a real pain tho, I knw first hand.
Great poem anyway the maternal instinct applies to both parents at times as does the fraternal great job Rock
BirdSong (Poetry) - 5/14/2012 9:31:03 PM
Ones mistake is a treasure in someone eyes. This looks like a tapestry of Angelic clouds with messages for all. The words are there in the sky and we just need to pray and look up to be filled with God's blessings. Well done Rhonda!
BirdSong (Poetry) - 5/14/2012 5:06:53 PM
Oh, Rhonda, this is so filled with love for the family! The beauty of a father filling the roles of father and mother together is awesome. His song to the young, taught by the Lord, is such a wonderful picture of God's love for us.
I would call for help from our support at AD if I were you. They can untangle problems that sometimes vex us in posting.
It's worth the trouble!
BirdSong (Poetry) - 5/14/2012 3:28:14 PM
I give up!
I tried posting it a third time and it's still all confused!
I'm embarrassed and very sorry.. After 'How can you stay angry?', the rest of the body of the poem is found beneath "A Shout Out To Men! and its ensuing four lines. I apologize.. and I sincerely hope it's worth the time it takes.
Today, The Sun Yawned (Poetry) - 10/27/2011 6:00:09 AM
Rhonda, first of all, this is really a beautiful poem. It's very inspiring, and it shows your love for the Lord. Blessings!!!

I love the warmth of this bright cheery Christmas poem!
And then the finale--the Spirit-filled prayer that so beautifully magnifies the grown-up, crucified, risen Christ seated in the heavenlies, and coming again!
As for the formatting, I wish I could understand how words I arrange so carefully on the AD Add Works page come out in various forms and sizes--I hope they can improve it soon.
Well, it's Christmas time -- "God bless us everyone!"

Mercy, No! (Poetry) - 11/30/2009 9:23:02 AM
This is a shocking and horrific poem. It's made even more terrible by the fact that it really happens, here, now. Your love and respect for God-given life and your compassion for the suffering ones has enabled you to write this important work. It certainly makes one stop and question, "What can I do to stop this injustice?"
God bless you and your pen mightily and continually.

Ruby Dancers (Poetry) - 9/8/2008 5:34:45 PM
My dear Rhonda,
Shame on me! You posted this delightful poem over two years ago, and I just discovered it. What do they say? "Better late than never." I'll attest to that. I love your poem, "Ruby Dancers."
I have 67 rose plants of several different kinds but only one fuschia, and it's a fairly new replacement for my former favorite fuschia, "Voodoo," I believe it was called, with a wonderful purple coloring.
As you may know from reading my own poem, "A Walk In My Garden," God's glory is revealed in many ways, one of which is in the simple splendor of his flowers. There are few things more pleasurable to me as a writer than extolling the beauty and influence of God's flowers!
Very nicely done!

Outstanding young lady!!!!

Why it's Angels clapping...can you hear???
I just want to add that there is a scripture that refers to the sons of disobiediance who are going to perdition which hell fire and judgement day are reserved for! although I cannot locate it at present I know it is there...as Christ would say; It is written...
Keep your wonderful Light shining bright as always "you" Spirit Warrior "you".

The Family Secret (Poetry) - 6/6/2007 3:21:12 PM
My father passed away before I was old enough to embrace his love. But I had a step-father who showed me his affection and concern in a hundred different ways. It is with the fondest of memories that I recall sitting on the floor in front of his chair in the evening as he read a children's story book to me. We were members of a very special club, the 42-7 Club. I loved it. Is it a coincidence that I was 7 and he was 42? Too soon was this man gone from my life by the fracturing instrument of divorce, but ever is he in my heart as the dearest man I have ever known. He was a miracle from heaven.
Thank God I had the privilege to raise two sons and two daughters and was given the opportunity to share with them what I yearned for but never received save the few years with my wonderful step-father.
And I pass on this lesson in my AD posted short-short story You and Me. I invite all writers and readers to visit my den and enjoy that brief interlude of how one man's loving concern saved a young boy's life and future. That boy was me.
As always, Rhonda, your poetry stirs and warms my heart. Bless you.

"Can You hear me? Crying out to You!
"If You hear me and You love me,
"Won't You tell me that's it's true?"
"I can hear you, and I love you
"I can hear you crying out My name;
"I've sent an angel, and you'll discover
"That you'll never be the same."
What a cry for salvation and what a promise sent by God Almighty!
What a blessing your song and message is, Rhonda.
With love and gratitude.

Multitudes, Multitudes (Poetry) - 3/10/2007 1:04:04 PM
Traveling through this right now personally, I can so relate to the end being a time of valley of indecision. For many they travel this whole life perhaps they are a devote religious person but never accepted Jesus offer of Salvation.. They wonder what happens once my last breath is over. A battle of death takes place along with questions. You were bold and obedient and they are saved because of your obedience... A blessed lil resident passed this past two days I had time to pray with her and for her she told me she believed she will wake in heaven now and all will be alright for Jesus died for her so she could.. I believe she is in his loving hands this moment.
Another is about to pass I have been praying for her she is an devote religious person in where you need to pass through purgatory. She said she is ready to go but is in fear of dying as if something is wrong... I praise him I have time to witness the place she speaks of is not existent in the Lords EYES... He set her free and by no means can we pray for those that are dead they are dead. If they believe in him then they rise in him.... She listened and we prayed for her to have understanding... I believe he will bring that confession one way or another for Mary...This is a powerful witness and move of GOD my dear SISTER RHONDA.................
Praise his Sovereign love and Mercy for us....Though we do not deserve it or can ever earn it he loves.. loves... loves... GLORY TO GOD....
Amazing Lord we serve SIS.
Blessings & Respect, Love,
YOUR SISTER IN CHRIST JESUS NO OTHER :)
YES CHOOSE WISELY....................
Mercy, No! (Poetry) - 2/4/2007 6:03:35 PM
This one my sister as you know touches me very deeply working with Nursing Homes and The Elderly this is a powerful poem which as of this moment after reading I am so choked up I can't find the words to explain my anger, pain, and shame in not being able to do more than I do. I pray every morning for these dear ones. I ask the Lord to even open those doors and give them back the minds, bodies, strength they need to walk out of these nursing homes. I always pray they will be treated with his compassion,. love, and made comfortable, respected and loved. And if in care with families they do like wise or give them to places that can deliver such attention...
GLORY TO GOD you and others Speak out SISTER RHONDA>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>This was powerful...... Still crying.
Love JOSIE GIRL

PinkApronStrings (Poetry) - 11/1/2006 5:37:01 PM
How beautiful and heartfelt is your write...it led me back down the path of memories that I keep safely tucked away in my memory and heart of my Mamaw's sewing machine that now stands proudly in my dining room. Many quilts, purses, dresses, and patches did she sew...I too as you sat with wide eyes of curiosity, and amazement as she peddled the big treddle on the floor, and the big wheel would spin around. In the summer she would pull it out on the porch and sew in the warm sunshine, these are such wonderful memories and your poem is yet another reminder of what a wonderful simple time we were raised in and the love that surrounded us can be felt in the lines of your poetry. This was great, nice to have things in common with friends isn't it. Loved it....
Blessings from a friend,

Though they take away my life yet do I live with my Lord in heaven. Good one Rhonda.
TresLinhaus:FALSE ACCUSERS (Poetry) - 7/9/2006 8:54:15 PM
Therefore: who, can be against you??? I tell you neither heaven nor hell.
for: who shall seperate us from the love of Christ?
shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine,
or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Just as it is written:
"For thy sake we are being
put to death all day
we were considered as
sheep to be slaughtered."
But, in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer, thru Him, who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,( that's you gizes, guys) nor things present, nor things yet to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to seperate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord!! Romans 8: 35 to 39

It's hard not to be political these days, since phrases like "polically correct" rule our lives, with laws to back them up, no less. But like Jerry said, My, heart goes out to the families and loved ones, of SOOOOO many.
Haiku:ENDLESS FLIGHT (Poetry) - 7/9/2006 3:27:56 PM
Yeah, sad so many had to die, but Russia these days are beginning to act like the old USSR. Putin. Ex-KBG man is showing his colors. Sorry about getting a bit political, I am sorry for so much loss of life.
