morning prayer time

empty mind of distraction

study ancient Word

quiet my soul like weaned child

leaning on my Father’s chest

reformed quote #5

3 Day/3 Quote Challenge:  People celebrate Halloween but many have forgotten that October 31 is Reformation Day for the Church.  So I will post a series of quotes by Protestant Reformers.  What a blessed “captivity”!


matthew henry’s commentary


Jesus is healer

his word is “panpharmacon

– salve for every sore”

whatever the affliction

no matter the addiction


(Matthew 4:23-25)


Qumran – 1947

I have privilege of hosting dVerse poetics today with theme of “The Watchman” Won’t you join us?

go, set a watchman!

sheep herder found
high cave by sound
of stone tossed far,
heard crashing jar
held ancient scroll
preserved the whole
of Isaiah’s book
world scholars look
in prophecy
fulfilled it be
truth revealed
for all who see.

Isaiah penned
God’s script for men:
walk in my ways
be blessed your days.
he is just as he is good,
his timely words
our living food.
Deo volente,
we live, we breathe;
list watchman’s call
don’t turn away
lest judgement fall

oh, rue the day!
