God Forgets And Forgives ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Some people find it hard,
to accept they’re forgiven
and so by their shame
their faith is being driven.

They do not understand,
God forgives and forgets
and so they hold on to . . .
their remorse and regrets.

Some people find it difficult,
to accept and move on
and so to their failures
they are constantly drawn.

They do not comprehend,
the meaning of God’s grace
and so onto their past sins
they continue to embrace.

Some people need to find,
the peace of God’s favor
by giving their unrighteousness
to Christ, Jesus their Savoir!


1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness.

Losing June

House of Heart

By morning I have renamed us,

crimson wounds we’ve healed

with tender words,

a forgiveness I can believe in.

I’ve etched your voice in my

memory to not forget the glossy

Sound of wings when you speak.

In sleep your eyes orbit above

me, brilliant satellites,

so that I may dream free of


I’ve pared us down to dark and light,

forgotten all I know of love and the

very recall of your name evokes

memories I’ve stored in the cache of

my heart.

Clap Your Hands Together ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

God is the God of forever,
great is His Holy name . . .
today, tomorrow, for always
His glory burns like a flame.

Clap your hands together,
lift your voice up in praise
let the power of His Spirit
set your heart for Him ablaze.

Blessed are those who trust,
who put their life in His hand
for their joy shall be complete
when before Jesus they stand.

Sing your praises to the Lord,
exalt your mighty King . . .
praise Him for the peace
He will soon one day bring.

Joy shall cover the earth,
His glory will shine like a flame
all His faithful will be in awe . . .
as they praise His Holy name!


Psalm 47:1

“O clap your hands,
all ye people; shout unto God
with the voice of triumph.”

Oh, You Of Little Faith ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Oh, you of little faith,
let not your fear betray
the power God’s given
to stay afloat today.

Oh, you of little trust,
don’t let doubt enter in
keep your eyes on Jesus
not on the raging wind.

Oh, you of little peace,
be not troubled or afraid
cast off your anxious view
and be you not dismayed.

Oh, you of little hope,
He will not let you sink
let your mind reflect on Him
in everything you think.

Oh, you of little faith,
Jesus will save you . . .
take a hold of His hand
and you He will rescue!


Matthew 14:30-31

“But when he saw the wind boisterous,
he was afraid; and beginning to sink,
he cried, saying, Lord, save me.”

And immediately Jesus stretched
forth his hand, and caught him,
and said unto him, O thou of little faith,
wherefore didst thou doubt?

The Stourbridge Line, Honesdale, Pennsylvania

John Cowgill: Stories of the Railroad

The town of Honesdale in the mountains of the northeastern region of the U.S. state of Pennsylvania is not a town that is well known to travelers. The only major road through here is U.S. Route 6, famously called the ‘Grand Army of the Republic Highway’. As you pass through the town of Honesdale, you will pass by the town’s little treasure. What is this little treasure?

Although the railroad did not begin in Pennsylvania, the state has many railroad sites. Among these sites is the Stourbridge Line in the town of Honesdale. What is the Stourbridge Line? Not many people in America or the world or even in Pennsylvania even know about this place, but it has a significance in the history of the railroad in the United States of America.

Let us begin in the U.S. state of Maryland in the city of Baltimore. The month is February…

A Sound Defeat ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

The battle with the enemy
will be easier to beat . . .
if we put our trust in Jesus
and leave the battle at His feet.

For we must go to Him,
and give to Him the fight
so He can lead us onward
in the power of His might.

As the battle continues,
He’ll be our strength and Rock
protecting our front and back
until the devil starts to balk.

He will provide for us a refuge,
a fortress and a safe place
He will defend and deliver us
put a hedge around our base.

The battle with the enemy,
will be easier to beat
if we just let Jesus . . .
lead us to a sound defeat!


2 Samuel 22:2-3

“And he said, The Lord is my rock,
and my fortress, and my deliverer;
The God of my rock; in him will I trust:

Dream Catcher

House of Heart

They are vivid,

unafraid yet gentle,

not to awaken their maker,

the guardian of dreams.

Slipping along the lunar surface

of sleep

golden pyramids rise from bonfires

only to melt like icebergs in a warming sea.

Her dreams live on like butterflies

breaking free from their chrysalis

with wings of every color.

She still needs her dreams

even as they fade.
