Look Up To God ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Early in the morning,
before your arise . . .
make sure to your worries
you keep God apprised.

Let Him know before,
you get your day started
why it is that you feel
fearful and fainthearted.

Early in the morning,
as the sun comes up
before you pour coffee
into your mug or cup.

Let God know how much,
you need Him to be with you
how impossible it’d be
without Him to make it through.

Early in the morning
before out of bed you climb
look up to God and spend . . .
with Him some quality time!


Psalm 5:3

“My voice shalt thou
hear in the morning,
O Lord; in the morning
will I direct my prayer
unto thee, and will look up.”

Living Hope

Poems and Petals

I lived in fear for years on end

My soul was tied and bound

I had no place outside my realm

No open path that I could tell

I gave up hope, resigned to life

My bed was made so down I laid

But change came by and saw the heart

My tears had nearly drowned

I closed my eyes and lift my arms

I surrendered all to God

Please help me, Lord, my life is yours

I have nowhere else to go

He heard my prayers and felt my pain

And wiped it all away

I thank you Lord for all you’ve done

For all my life might be

I’ll live my days to glorify

My living hope in Thee!

The Train Room, Hagerstown, Maryland

John Cowgill: Stories of the Railroad


You are driving north along U.S. 11 in Maryland, and you enter into Hagerstown.  You see a small building with the words ‘The Train Room’ on the side.  Curiously, you pull over.  It is a small place.  What could be here?  You decide to go in.  You see a store full of model train supplies for sale.  You first thought is that this is just your average model train store.

“Would you like to see ‘The Train Room’?”

You see the man at the register.  You walk over to him.

“Would you like to see ‘The Train Room’?”  He asks you.

Thinking about it, you accept the invitation.  You then enter ‘The Train Room’.  You see a large model train display with trains going round and round and round and round.  The walls are full of trains.  Then you see more trains and more trains and more trains.  Before you…

Our Bodyguard ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

God is our defender,
our bodyguard
when to His ways
we regard.

God is our anchor,
our safety-net
when in His ways
we are set.

God is our rescuer,
our life-saver
when to His ways
we don’t waiver.

God is our protector,
our safety-shield
when to His ways
we humbly yield.

God is our bunker,
our bodyguard
when after His ways
we follow hard!


Psalm 84:11

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield:
the Lord will give grace and glory:
no good thing will he withhold
from them that walk uprightly.”
