‘Now’ — Between the Past and Future
The past is gone ... 1
The future not yet born ... perhaps for you, never to arrive.
"NOW" ... a swiftly fleeting moment ... nothing to reject or loan;
Wedged between the past and future — only, "NOW" you are alive.
To make the most of, "NOW" is of the essence ...;
It will be called the past before so very long.
When, "NOW" has slipped from the present —;
It does forever ... leave a residue for right... or wrong.
Behold NOW is the accepted time — NOW is the day of Salvation..
God gave His Son to die on Calvary ... To save our sin-sick soul.
Christ died for all people ... in every nation...;
Salvation is a gift ... free to all ... in God’s word we’re told.
Ohhh, breathtaking... such beauty on a
clear, cold winter night...
With the glistening snow covering all
Walking in the crisp, freezing air...
Stars like diamonds sparkling, nestled
in velvet, twinkling their light.
Bundled for warmth... progress goes slowly
walking through the snow...
Keeping breath shallow... for air is so
Enjoying the wonders... trees sculptured
in ice, limbs hanging low;
Ice crunching underfoot as you leave the
Church... and homeward go...
A diminished white world with... a star-
studded sky— the canopy;
For snow with icy gloss and icicles is
what you see...
Everything covered and blanketed as in
From God comes nature’s dreamland... a
mystery of beauty to me.
A picture of the snowy night in memory
Nothing faded... all glistening white...
remembered pleasure gives —;
No painter can paint as this... it can
never, ever be;
For the Master Artist was at work... Oh,
Lord... ‘tis Thee.
God is Love
Born in manger
To save from sin.
What most see!
God so loved
From His heart
