Getting My Home In Order ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I’m getting my home in order,
cleaning up all the grime . . .
getting rid of the things
robbing God of my time.

My closet I’ll declutter,
throw out the worthless stuff
toss away my wasteful junk
and all the other useless fluff.

I’m getting my home in order,
clearing out all the rubbish . . .
so that my faith and trust
won’t be weak and sluggish.

I’ll go from room to room,
search until I finally find
all the things that are futile
so I can unbound my mind.

I’m getting my home in order,
my time I’m going to free
so I can spend more of it . . .
thinking about things I can’t see!


2 Kings 20:1

“Thus saith the Lord, Set thine
house in order;”

Pacific Paratrooper

11th Airborne, Leyte

As the fighting for the 11th Airborne Division, on Leyte, came to a close, the battalions worked their way back to Bito Beach. The 674th and 675th Glider Field Artillery and the 457th Parachute Field Artillery remained in strategic positions to cover them.

The Luzon Attack Force, commanded by VAdmiral Kinkaid, under MacArthur, was composed of7th Fleet units and numbered more than 850 ships.

Winter Wandering

Peacock Poetry

Yesterday we decided to travel to one of the few Swiss lakes that we had not yet visited. The Ägerisee, near to Zug, turned out to be a very atmospheric place especially in the snow and a good time was had by all. After our walk we found a cute Italian restaurant in the town and completed our outing with some delicious food. What more can you ask for?!

The Ägerisee Way

En route to the Ägerisee, there were some icy bends

We slid down slowly, our own way, relieved at the slope’s end

The snowploughs chased as we both traced the lake and snowflakes drifted

These outings are what my day make, felt instantly uplifted

The crunch of snow, the warming glow of lakeside Christmas lighting

The fog, the sunshine and the flow of joy with you, exciting

We journeyed back a different way, our hearts and bellies filled

We All Need A Helper ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

We all need a helper,
who is always there
one who can assist us
with our daily care.

We need that one person,
to go with us the length
someone who will give us
the power and the strength.

We need their guidance,
on what we should do
we need them to tell us
just how and when to.

We need their words,
of comfort and solace
we need their love
perfect and flawless.

We all need a helper,
so Jesus saw to it . . .
for He gave to each of us
the comfort of His Spirit!


John 14:16-17

And I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide
with you for ever;

Even the Spirit of truth; whom
the world cannot receive,
because it seeth him not,
neither knoweth him:
but ye know him; for he dwelleth
with you…

Sarah and Sierra

This is Sarah and Sierra

They teach at the beach

They feel heat on their feet

They have fun on the sun

Sand blows between their toes

They play enjoy the day

Full of glee so joyfully

They smile for a while

They take the chance to dance

Oh boy, what a joy

To see Sarah and Sierra

Focus On Eternity ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

This year my mind,
will focus on eternity
for I know and believe
it’s my eternal destiny.

I’m not giving thought,
to all the turmoil
I won’t let the chaos
my anxieties embroil.

This year my heart,
calmness will savor
for I know and believe
Jesus is my Savior.

I’m not going to feel,
troubled or distressed
instead I’m going to be
with God at rest.

This year my life,
will be at perfect peace
for each day onto Jesus
all my worries I’ll release!


John 17:3

And this is life eternal,
that they might know thee
the only true God,
and Jesus Christ,
whom thou hast sent.

The Faces of Grace ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

There are many faces,
to God’s grace . . .
and each one of them
we need to embrace.

For everlasting peace,
grace will impart
right into the flesh
of every new heart.

Grace provides training,
we need to consider
for it’s the God’s Truth
and Life transmitter.

For eternal hope,
grace will convey
by showing us the things
that will lead us astray.

There are many sides,
to the face of grace . . .
and we need them all
if we are to win the race!


Titus 2:11-13

For the grace of God that bringeth
salvation hath appeared to all men,

Teaching us that, denying ungodliness
and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
