Finishing Well ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Whatever you begin,
finish it well . . .
let the power of God
rise in you and swell.

Be faithful all the way,
as you run the race
hold on to the hope
of the Gospel of grace.

Whatever you start,
finish it well . . .
let the Holy Spirit
your fears quell.

Trust and believe,
Jesus is your strength
to go the distance
no matter the length.

Whatever you do,
finish it joyfully . . .
so you may complete
the course triumphantly!

Acts 20:24

But none of these things move me,
neither count I my life dear
unto myself, so that I might
finish my course with joy,
and the ministry, which I have
received of the Lord Jesus,
to testify the gospel of
the grace of God.

WWII Glider Stands as a nod to Camp MacKall, NC

Glider at Camp MacKall

HOFFMAN, N.C. (Tribune News Service)  — The Army’s Special Forces, Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations soldiers have been tried, tested and trained at Camp Mackall for decades.

But long before the first Green Beret was built amid the remote satellite installation several miles west of Fort Bragg, Camp Mackall was home to the nation’s parachute and glider training amid World War II.

Airborne, Camp MacKall

The U.S. Army Special Warfare Center and School honored that history as it dedicated a replica of a Waco CG-4A glider that now welcomes visitors from Camp Mackall’s Ashemont Road entrance.

The glider — which is raised above an intersection that also features a flag pole, historical marker and welcome sign — was built to be a sturdier version of the original CG-4A gliders. The nose of the glider includes a metal frame salvaged from an actual glider that was found…

Pouring and Snoring

Peacock Poetry

After another spell of sultry summer sunshine, it was so pleasant and refreshing to lie in bed and listening to the soothing sounds of summer rain. Ever the poetic one, I could not resist writing about this experience as I laid down preparing for sleep.

Summer Rain Lullaby

The soothing song of summer rain

Restores my heart and mind again

The lanes flushed out by tepid tears

I’m cooled inside, my thoughts have cleared

and as the patter smooths my head

I’m all wrapped up, glad I’m in bed

Like lead my limbs upon the sheets

I’m lulled by rhythmic raindrop beats

Wide open is my window frame

It’s high time that the freshness came

The soothing song of summer rain

Restores my heart and mind again

Pressing Through ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

You got to press through,
unanswered prayers
you got to believe
God still cares.

You got to know,
He’s working things out
you got to stand firm
in faith and not doubt.

You got to press on,
through the ups and downs
you got to keep trusting
till His answer resounds.

You got to understand,
it’s all about His timing
you got to hold on tight
while the answer He’s priming.

You got to believe and trust,
you got to press through
while God is preparing . . .
the right answer for you!


Luke 18:1

And he spake a parable unto them
to this end, that men ought
always to pray, and not to faint;
