For God’s Pleasure ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

You were created,
for God’s pleasure
your faith and trust
to Him is a treasure.

For He molded you,
into His likeness
making you a portrait
of His kindness.

God created you,
to give Him praise
for His glory
all of your days.

For He formed you,
to give Him honor
by gracing you with
His mercy and favor.

You were created,
for God’s joy and delight
to bring praise to Him . . .
with a heart contrite!


Revelation 4:11

Thou art worthy, O Lord,
to receive glory and honour
and power: for thou hast
created all things,
and for thy pleasure
they are and were created.

I’m Living For Christ ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I’m living for Christ,
myself I’m denying
everyday more to Him
I find myself dying.

I’m carrying my cross,
no matter the cost
in sin no longer . .
is my soul lost.

I’m living for Christ,
His light I want to be
so others can see
His life inside of me.

I’m studying His Word,
using my God given gift
encouraging others
with words that uplift.

I’m living for Christ,
like Him I am striving
and everyday my life
He is modifying!


Galatians 2:20

I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live; yet not I,
but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live
in the flesh I live by the faith
of the Son of God, who loved me,
and gave himself for me.

CHRISTmas Wonderment ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

May you feel the wonder,
of God’s gift of a Savior
may His love and grace
you hold on to and savor.

May you feel the thrill,
of the hope of His birth
may your heart overflow
with joy, cheer and mirth.

May you feel the wonder,
of the coming of a King
may you trust and believe
in the peace He’s soon to bring.

May you feel the excitement,
of Him who was and is to come
may you be eager and ready
for Him to set up His kingdom.

May you feel the wonder,
of God’s blessed assurance
as you await the day . . .
of His next appearance!


John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only
begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.”

Hebrews 9:28

“So Christ was…

11th Airborne and the end of WWII / part one

Pacific Paratrooper

Jeeps on Okinawa

Okinawa, as one of the islands being “beefed-up” with supplies, men and materiel, quickly became significantly congested; it is only 877 square miles, but soon they would be minus the 11th Airborne Division. MacArthur had decided the 11th would be the first to land in Japan, with the 187th Regiment leading off.

General Swing was not certain how the enemy would take to him and the 187th regiment landing in Japan as the first conquerors in 2000 years, so the men were ordered to be combat ready. Besides staying in shape, they spent many an hour listing to numerous lectures on the Japanese culture.

15 August, Washington D.C. received Japan’s acceptance of the terms of surrender. Similar to the Western Electric advertisement pictured, phones and telegraphs buzzed around the world with the news that WWII was over, but reactions varied. Among the men on Okinawa, there was…

When God Delays ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Be brave and strong,
when God delays . . .
or else you’ll suffer
from a faith malaise.

For His timing,
isn’t the same as ours
for we don’t keep
His heavenly hours.

Be patient and calm,
as God formulates
the advice for you
He needs to calculate.

For God is at work,
both night and day
and His answers for you
He needs to weigh.

Be brave and strong,
while for God you wait
be patient and calm
for God is never late!


Ephesians 6:10

 Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might

1 Corinthians 16:13

Watch ye, stand fast in the faith,
quit you like men, be strong.
