To Give Or To Get

Poem By Joseph Blitch

Two choices were given at mans beginning;
One immensely good; the other life ending.
GOD's way was giving all from a heart of love;
Lucifer became an enemy wanting to get above.
Two tree choices in the beautiful garden Eden;
Wrong selection made due to subtle pleading.
Rebellious longing to acquire things on his own;
Eyes opened to things by man not to be known.
The tree of life for the taking given to us at will;
Knowledge of good and evil came with a bill.
Man in disarray the death debt could not pay.
Defiant man could no longer in the garden stay.
Within the garden they lived in a peaceful life;
Cast out they found a world of labor and strife.
Through human's history the choices remain;
Become holy; do good and from evil abstain.
GOD's gift to man will alleviate and relieve;
Through love the gift of life we may receive.
Now to give or to get; which is right for all?
No question for me; GOD has made the call!

Faith Conquers Fear

From youth up I have heard people say;
I'm afraid this or that will happen today;
I'm afraid I'm going to catch this or that;
No ailment loiters when stripes are at bat;

Life's Search For Love

From cradle to grave we are on one quest,
Until the search is over we'll have no rest,
You find pictures of couples in an embrace,
I ask, What is the reason, What's the case?

Enigmatically Truthful

Day begins with night; Yet shadows do not stay;
With the breaking of dawn, darkness flees away.
We observe as the wind twists limbs of a tree;
Yet enigmatically the wind itself we can't see.

Whispering Your Name

Deeply within the solitude of my mind,
Like on a deserted island within the sea,
My tangled thoughts hoping to unwind,
Getting spirit, soul and mind to agree.

Celebrating His Glory

Early morning, before dawning light of day,
A Whip-o-will is heard calling for light’s ray.
The host of stars seen twinkling in the night,
With dawning light seem to have taken flight.

All For Even Me

Heaven is The Lord's Devine Throne above.
From the expanse above flows His Love.
Visiting the Earth His foot stool here below;
Came His Son bringing Living Water's flow.
