OMG Brad!  That was beautiful, in a very non-gay way.  He has really called you to write.  Thank you.  This is just the beginning, just imagine what he's gonna give you as you go deeper?  Thank you!

Only a manly man can take jokes about the gay thingie.

Just post your picture and put it all to rest.

The writings are beautiful and speaks of a heart for God.

Now that I won't be stealing Brad's thunder, I'llpost a thing of mine. Some may have seen it before but I make no apology forthat. This really happened!



LOVE PSALM

I feel Your soft caresses, Your warm breath
Cascading down over my head and shoulders
Down my arms like silk chiffon.
You are the core of my body,
The essence of my soul
My heart's beat, the breath of my life.
You are the meaning of my life,
My Saviour, my Father, my God.
I, whose rightful place is to kneel at Your feet in penitence
Hardly daring to touch the tip of Your toe with my tears,
How is it possible for me to stand before You thus?
Only by the love of Christ, the blood of the Lamb
The desire of God to be united with His people.
Only because of this can I stand before You,
Be one of Your sheep, You beloved child.
Only thus can I dare to love You and return
A tiny part of that love You have expressed to me
My Holy Saviour, my Father, my God.

The Lord is my banner

8 iron you're writing psalms!  I don't know what to say that won't sound like I'm "just" saying it, you know?  God is in that for sure, what a blessing, keep going.


The Lord is my banner

Jo, one time in church a gentle lady came to me with the most delicate gossamer flag of rainbow colours that she'd been worshipping with and asked me if she might drape it over me as she'd felt the Lord tell her to. 
Your poem just did that same thing.  :)

Yes.  Excellent Brad.

More please....:popcorn:

Yeah, the gay thing is just a kidding around thing.

I used to have 'false' masculinity, but over the last few years God has showed me true masculinity! Part of it the way He did is restoring things with my dad.

So, yeah, I'll admit the poetry thing was a different kind of feeling, but I really never really felt any less masculine by writing poetry.

So have you been writing since then or did you just start again?  Do you share it with your kids?  We only see you a srtong man of God.

I haven't really written anything since Soph year in high school, um 23 years ago.. LOL...

My daughter writes and dabbles, so that is what really triggered me to think of giving it another try.

It's an outlet for me and I enjoy it. Nothing more, nothing less.....

This is very beautiful Jo.  And I think we all relate to it's message.
