The Fence

Stressed out

things to do

shoulders up

face is screwed

up so sour


Don’t like what

She’s been plated.


Same old day

Same old song

dragging on

Way too long

need much more

Than this job

sees a Fence

Lustful sob

anything but

What she has

nothing good

Eyes the grass

laundry, dishes

dust and floors

beds, toys, sink

bathroom, chores


“Yuck,” she whispers

through her teeth

I’d rather be resting


a palm tree blowing

in the wind

restful music

then she grinned

the grass over there

looked so nice

“so dang tired”

whisper voice


These sleepy feet

need a rest

On. her. knees.

This. is. best.

Hands clasped

“Help,” she said

Instantly felt

Light instead.


As she looked

up to the sky

breeze blew

special sigh

Shoulders relaxed

back is straight

Sees the blessings

on her plate

Same sweet day

lessons learned

Joyful laughter

Love overturned

a sinful glance

temptation’s nudge

Yet, steadfast Christian

wouldn’t budge.


Safe little house

Precious ones

Dedicated to

Having fun


Thankful for

HIS gentle reminder

Dying grass

put behind her

Rotten fence

just the sun

shadows scattered

Almost came undone


Now revealed

is her truth

all is good

under her roof

Building lives

straight to Heaven

Each day spent

one through seven

Working hard

ups and downs

Through it all

God is found

Pulling her up

HIS hands support her?


Steady soldier


Focused now

God’s so good

Tears down fence

made of wood.

Steady hands

build a gate

Door to God

Knows sins fate.

Weakness turned

Into power!

Where she stood

Now a reminder

the grass isn’t greener

It’s just an illusion

don’t take the apple

A sinful solution

to dig you deeper

in your grave

Look up now

She behaves

Like the girl

She was made to be

selflessly living

for eternity.

James 1:13-18


 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters.

 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.  He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
