It's a Happy Friday My Wonderful Friends! emoticon emoticon

God did it again! Gave me a Word this morning and I'm glad about it! Flowing in that poetic style! In this month I have a birthday! It's on November 22...a Friday! Also it's been 50 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I know in Texas they have made it a Holiday but I'm not sure if that's Federal or not. I will not write a poem in ref to that. I may just post a picture with my birthday poem. I believe we must focus on LIFE not the darkness. Trying to figure out all the what ifs will not change what happened that day. Do you ever wonder how much all of that costs? Alright not on a soapbox. I'm excited for you to read this poem so go at it. Lengthy but weighty! emoticon


An artery that gives light;
Increasing our Spiritual insight;
Strengthens us with divine might;
The access on which we fight;
God’s Way-
Is The Highway…
On which we travel…
The devil’s plans…
He must obey our demands;
For we have the command…
To rebuke him with authority;
Resist him and he will flee-
Terrified for all to see;
We must stay connected to our Life Source…
His Name is Jehovah of course!
Remain straight and look ahead…
Actions required for faith without works is dead;
There’s no fear on His road of victory;
It brings us to eternity;
God’s Way…
Is The Highway.
Safe and secure-
Planted firmly we endure…
Fighting a good fight of faith;
He never leaves or forsakes-
Use the Name of Jesus-
With assurance;
Sprinkle His Blood…
And it’s flood-
Destroys the enemy’s traps…
And planned mishaps;
God’s Way-
Is The Highway…
Where we remain strong;
Rejoice in songs…
Of Praise-
As we raise…
Our Glory Banner high-
It flies…
Sending forth a fire…
Than ever;
So never…
Turn from God’s Way…
For it’s the right of way-
To God’s Eternal Highway!

Whew! I like that! It's raw so in the end before I put it in a BOOK I may tweak it. Editing is always part of that process. So glad you came by today. So glad you took time out of your busy day. I'm always pleased with your comments. I do want to say if I am slow responding to anything this month I am involved in the Write A Novel In A Month event (NaNoWriMo) which started November 1 and will end November 30. I've been writing up a sea of words and enjoying EVERY moment of it. I can read back what I wrote from one day and end up laughing and crying at the same time! Everybody wins if you write 50,000 words and it can be a project that you are already working on. Thanks again for all of your support!

Love & Abundant Blessings!

    You are such a blessing my gifted friend of God! Can't wait till one day I can purchase one of your books.

I love how you said we can unravel the plans of the devil as we are on God's highway! Amen! Amen!
This week at the jail where I do Bible study, I saw a new Christian who had been abused by her father, travel on God's highway as she shared her story. It made others come out of the dark and share. To me, when one can share, it begins healing for others are there to share Christ and Hope.

Thank you again, sweetie for who you are and who you represent.

    Hi Deb. Love your poem. It puts me in mind of a song I was listening to this morning by Signature Sound and Gaither Vocal Band, called The Holy Highway. You would probably like it. You definitely have a gift. Enjoy your writing. Have a great night.

    Your poems are a great blessing for me. Again, this is going into my spiritual inspirational book. I remember singing a song in church years ago. Walking down the Kings's highway. God bless you and have a blessed weekend. By the way, your birthday is on the day Kennedy was assasinated and my daughter Jackie was born on Prince Charles' birthday. When she was little, she used to tell people that Prince Charles was born on HER birthday.
