In the Garden of Eden you will find many miracles to explore.
Hope’s Chest is miracle’s winding road.
Down the Golden path
Guardian Betty stands in her white robe.
She stands at attention protecting heaven’s door.
She was one of many to venture down miracle’s quest.
In another life time she was once a Nurse.
Now she’s the Guardian that protects miracles next.
Keeper Pauley is an amazing man.
A miracle’s quest prized selection.
In his past he was a physician.
He hears the call of wounded souls.
He has dominion over Hope’s chest and the keeper of its key.
The sirens scream
And the warrior’s horn sound off
All angels report
Line up, stand tall and prepare to go.
As he turned the key to Heaven’s door
In the presence of King Almighty they stand adorned.
The entire flock of angels waits,
each one willing
to do his bidding.
They chant that special phrase all must say;
“King Almighty, I look to you to lead my way.
To guide me and to keep me safe
To you I give the highest praise.”
King Almighty gave his Grace
When he saw Jeff pray.
“It is Jeff Lord, lost and confused
I need you to help me through.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
My breathing is labored and my heart grows weak.
King Almighty it is your face that I seek.”
My heart is heavy and my hope grows weak.
I look to you in my time of need.
The enemy of doubt is at Faith’s door knocking loudly confusing me more.
The Minister of Mayhem stole my joy.
And Pharaoh Time is chasing me fast.
He is dragging me towards the underworld’s path.
On bended knees and an open mind
The golden path Jeff did find.
With a father’s love and a father’s stare
A glimpse was all that Jeff could bare.
The King’s eyes were like the ocean blue.
His heart is pure.
But for Jeff they were in shades of grey
They confirmed the pain and his dismay.
The tears that Almighty shed rained down below.
He looked in Jeff’s heart and felt Jeff’s sorrow.
When King Almighty spoke his final command
He held the world in his hand.
His words were like the wind swirling off his tongue.
And all knew his will was done.
When King Almighty blew out his next phrase
It was like thunder rolling in a cloud of waves.
And he said unto me,
“My grace is sufficient for thee:
For my strength is made perfect in weakness...”
II Corinthians 12:9
I hear your cry.”
With a blink of his eye lightening flashed.
Brightening up the sky with a miracle test
In a flicker of dreams Angel Pauley was on deck.
Angel Pauley was the Key Keeper of Hope’s Chest.
Guardian Betty prepared for miracle next.
And all the angels obeyed King Almighty’s Command
And they submitted to the Weary Heart’s demand.
In a world of ups and downs
Smiles and frowns
Also lives war and peace.
Free will determines your destiny.
In the wilderness of hope
A fallen soldier is lost
Missing in the battle of harden hearts and forget me not.
He is slain by the dragon of heartache and pain
And the lost soldier fights in the line of duty and for the honor of his King.
New Hope was meant for the entire world to know.
Hope was his quest as the book of Pharaoh’s life closed.
From Jeff’s open heart and unselfish prayer
He learnt a lesson and was granted a blessing.
With his new heart Jeff passed miracle’s test.
He is the future White Lighter next.
Guardian Betty and Key Keeper Pauley closed their eyes to rest.
King Almighty the king of everything closed Hope’s Chest
As the world waits Miracle’s next quest.
