Hello everyone! Our friend and fellow blogger Jean Oathout is scooting in the door with an Easter poem titled “The Cross, the Cross”. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease look below this poem for a picture of Jean’s newly published E-book, So You Plan to Marry a Man. And congratulations, Jean, on your new book! And now, for Jean’s poem on the cross:
THE CROSS THE CROSS
The Cross the Cross what will it be
Only a necklace that you where?
Will your faith be what others see
And do they know you care?
Can you remember what Christ said
As He hung on the Cross?
Have you known that your life’s been lead,
Or have your faith you lost?
Once you have seen God’s love renewed
It’s hoped that you can know
Christ rose up from the grave so you’d
His grace begin to show.
As Easter came our way again
Did you decide to change?
To become Christ’s woman or man
Your habits rearrange?
The Holy Spirit of Christ now
Can help you pass each test.
Today do humbly bow
And in Him come to rest.
May Jesus see the life you live
Is one you find does pay.
He’ll know that from all you will give
A “Job well done” He’ll say.
“He who gets wisdom loves his own soul;
He who keeps understanding will find good.”
Father, my desire is to please You. Help me seek Your counsel. Amen
So You Plan to Marry a Man
