Our Eternal Home

I met a doctor who had cancer,
He could not believe it was stage four.
At sixty, to me he was younger,
He said he still had a lot to live for.

This unshaken faith in God is what the world needs today! Man is so powerless, but when He is by our side, we grow powerful! An uplifting poem!
Death is the fate of all men on earth, Our eternal home has rooms for me and you. God's Word does not return void, it goes forth In Christ we will live though we die, it's true! .... ......very apt poem to be selected....as POD
A poem that lifts up shaken spirit, very well writ.
'Life is so short and before we realize Our days are ending, a brief time remains' - so true! Death is inevitable. For those who prepare well for it, it's neither scary, nor saddening. Congratulations on your poem's selection as the 'Member Poem of the Day'!
beautiful dear Cynthia! it's painful when you love this earth and everything in it! but when our focus is on Jesus, it's a joy to be with Him! you penned it so well! congrats for being the POD!
The feeling of dying when you just have so much more to live for is heart breaking. To have to accept death at this time and finalise everything also. Thank You
What a joyful poem! What makes it different is the person of Christ! He believed, received, therefore though he dies of cancer, he shall live again through Christ when Christ returns to create a new heaven and new earth!
Superb four liners, I liked the tone of it.
Congrats! Belief, whatever it may be, can perform miracles.
Very touching and sympathetic with true human feelings. Congrats for selection of POD.
Life is so short and before we realize Our days are ending, a brief time remains.. Pious and phylosophic. Thanks for sharing. Congrats being POD
" Birth and death are the definite destinations, To be shuttled in life of progeny of human. Life, thus, granted gives it a makeshift home, It has to go after death to eternal home" . A great spiritual truth versified. Congrats on well deserved poem of the Day.10 points.
walk, walk for the eternal HOME.........
An uplifting poem of the day po, Mommy Cynthia. Congrats po, for being chosen....10++++++++++++++
Faith is Faith and nothing else. Your poem adds nothing to what you believe. Something more inspiring is required.
I saw the despair in his eyes, The hopelessness there and the great pain. Life is so short and before we realize Our days are ending, a brief time remains... yes faith and prayer bring us closer to joy.. in times of trial and sickness. tony
With God everything can be possible. Thanks Cynthia.
A very nice poem on His praise. He is there to take care of all of us. We must have faith in Him. What He does for our good only. 'Death is the fate of all men on earth, Our eternal home has rooms for me and you. God's Word does not return void, it goes forth In Christ we will live though we die, it's true! '..is very nice. Thanks for sharing.10++++
