    HEAVENS HEARTH

    Angered lash of winters gale

    Cutting deep with biting hale

    Turning now to drifting snow

    Blinding sight to where I’d go

    To far of windows fading light

    To escape this world turning white

    To hide from cold that bites the nose

    And freezes now complaining toes

    Weary steps draw me closer still

    Where heat is had to counter chill

    Snow now drifts like billowing foam

    As through its softness; I struggle home

    A soul redeemed is lashed by gales

    Exertions breath quick exhales

    Eyes still fixed to faded light

    That guides it through winter’s night

    My heart is lifted as I near

    The opening door to fires cheer

    Escaping the bite of chilling blast

    To rest beside home hearth at last

    A gladdened soul enters Heavens door

    Where chilling winds can bite no more

    Trials of life that plagued on earth

    Are now forgotten besides Heavens hearth

    A HOME

    Hear His words of welcome

    Hear His words; well done

    Hear the words of greeting

    Coming from God’s dear Son 

    Feel His hands now touching

    Feel His arms embrace

    Feel His tender touch

    As you gaze upon His face

    See the nail prints in His hands

    See the thorn marks on His brow

    See His blessed face at last

    For you are in Heaven now

    Home at last in Glory

    Home at last to stay

    Home for all eternity

    That will never pass away

    No more pain to suffer

    No more tears to cry

    No more of them falling

    For God will wipe them dry

    A mansion for you to live in

    A dwelling within its towers

    A home built by the Saviour

    And forever now is yours

    Colin Moffett.

    Thanks to Beth Hillards for her greeting in her blog and putting these thoughts in my head!

    DANCING FLAMES

    Dancing flames of fire bright

    Welcomes warmly my icy feet

    Outside the world is turning white

    In wintry showers of snow and sleet 

    Listening to the north wind blow

    Howling at the window pane

    Watching drifting flakes of snow

    Cover vacant fields beside the lane

    I bathed in glow of joyful heat

    Greedy flames devouring coals

    In cosiness of armchair seat

    Mused of eternal flames burning souls

    Coal shaped figures did appear

    In front of drooping sleepy eyes

    And in fancy I could hear

    Gnashing teeth and bitter cries

    Escape the flames; my imagined cry

    My eyes transfixed to fiery glow

    Come to Jesus with sins scarlet dye

    And be washed whiter than the snow

    At fireside a lesson learned

    Of drifting snow and licking flame

    Then closed my eyes as fire burned

    And sleep crept in and overcame

    GOLDEN

    Weeping leaves like golden tears

    Kissing gently frosted ground

    Beneath gnarled tree; soft under feet

    A golden carpet spreads around

    Frost has loosened holding stem

    Breeze has caught them in her breath

    Sets them on the dewy grass

    Like golden coinage of untold wealth

    A tree once stood in leafless form

    No crown of beauty could it wear

    For on its trunk cruelly nailed

    The Son of God was hanging there

    Weeping blood like crimson tears

    Flowing softly to the ground

    Beneath gnarled tree at His feet

    Peace for my soul was finally found

    Golden leaves of a carpet deep

    A golden path that I tread

    Soon to walk a golden street

    With a golden crown on my head

    WE MUST REMEMBER

    What remember we of soldier men

    Who went to battlefield to fight and die?

    Muddy trenches soaked blood and gore

    In giving life; could not do more

    Who never saw homeland again

    And now in silent graves they lie

    What remember we of airmen

    Who soared like birds on metal wings?

    Blue sky background to twists and turns

    When wind fanned the flame that burns

    Of spiralling plane; never to fly again

    As in plummets end; death it brings

    What remember we of seamen

    Who fought on oceans of angry foam

    The ever moving restless waves

    Tell mournfully of watery graves

    As they lap the shores again

    Whispering of souls who never came home

    What remember we of woman; man

    Who sacrificed life to keep us free?

    They stood between us and the foe

    An awful debt to them we owe

    When evil succeeded not in hellish plan

    What means it all to you and me?

    What remember we of the Crucified

    Who went to die for you and me?

    Blood poppy red on cross was spilled

    The words uttered before breath was stilled

    It is finished! He loudly cried

    And victory was won on that tree

    Call to remembrance of sacrifice made

    Gather your thoughts this day of November

    Of ones who died to keep you free

    Of Jesus who died for you on a tree

    Shame on us if their memories should fade

    And we never bothered of them to remember
