Faithfully God Sends ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Faithfully God sends,
new mercy each day
lovingly He shines
a light on our way.

Diligently God provides,
for our every need
gently green pastures
He sends us to feed.

Generously God gives,
guidance when asked
openly He bestows
strength for the task.

Dependably God grants,
the power to trust
trustingly He watches
over each of us.

Faithfully God comforts,
with His grace lovingly
kindly He bestows . . .
new mercies tenderly!


Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

The Letter

House of Heart

I left a message for you in a book.
It is like me to mark provocative phrases,
to shake them out in ponderous verses.
Do not read too much in the fallout,
the notes in the border are for nostalgia’s sake.
I dreamt of you again last night
my adversary
whose aura I barely recall.
My suffering is not in knowing what was real
but what was not.

Tiny Nuances


The circle stretches miles long
Hands held, leaving no room
Baring the strength of steel

Some things cannot be forced
Tiny nuances glow in time
The truth, clear as pure water

Emotions flood out
Frenzied with freedom
The agony is extreme

Floatingdown, down
Falling reckless
Into arms open wide

To guide and to calm
Into moving forward

The circle remains as

The Most Dangerous Paper Route in the World

Pacific Paratrooper

Stars and Stripes, which dates back to the Civil War, has published continuously since World War II. In 2010, the paper won a prestigious George Polk Award for revealing the Defense Department’s use of a public relations firm that profiled reporters and steered them toward favorable coverage of the war in Afghanistan. In 2015, the publication broke the news that NBC anchor Brian Williams had exaggerated a story about his reporting in Iraq. Much of the day-to-day coverage is news of direct concern to service members and their families: pay and benefits, life on base and in the field, the real people behind the global geopolitics.

Central Command Area of Responsibility (Apr. 4, 2003) — Command Sgt. Maj. John Sparks, delivers copies of Stars and Stripes to U.S. Marines from Weapons Platoon, 3-2 India Company. The Marines are part of Task Force Tarawa, deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom…

Looking Up

Peacock Poetry

On Tuesday evening I had the urge to go for an early evening walk. It was a balmy summer evening and I barely saw a soul. Such a treat to get to the top of the hill and look our from where the blue and green become one. I cannot help but feel grateful when out in nature.

Summer High

I’m high up in a summer field

Where blue divides the green

The harmony this evening wields

New meaning to serene

The sun beams still across dry hills

The hay scent strong and present

We have the choice ourselves to fill

with beauty, says my essence

Each step I take, I’m more awake

to magical abundance

The more I sense the more I break

away from what’s redundant

New fangled things hold no appeal

I bask beneath the gleam

of radiant high summer fields

Where blue melts into green

God is Waiting

Rum and Robots - Never Lose Sight of Hope, Faith and Perseverance

Photo by Troy Squillaci on – Poem by Joni Caggiano 07/08/20

The fine hairs of the tree moss,
talk to one another in a language
only they know.

Years have gone since the heavy
branches have felt the weight
of heavy winter snow.
The earth preserves herself within
a cavity of love, as many things
have fallen to slumber.
Years ago when the moonlight
brought a trail of tears, God
talked of such wonder.
Animals and fairies live close
to the old-growth trees until
God will raise them.
Life whispers sing to others old,
as seasons shed their covers
we will soon be with Him.
