I think that I may have explained about the Date Poems that I write, but just for a “refresher” – here is one for today, November Nineteenth .
I started writing “Date Poems” years ago, at first only using the first letters of the day’s date, and trying, regardless of what day it was, to do a poem for every day of the month, at least up until the particular month ended. For example, the date “acrostic” for Thursday, November Nineteeth, Two Thousand And Fifteen would be:
These days, writing sites require more characters and words, so I spell out the whole date. I have no time to do one for every day due to “life”, unfortunately, so I just write one when I can for the day it happens to be. The one below is for the day it was written, Thursday, November Nineenth , 2015 –( I don’t use the year spelled out, as that would make the poem way long!).
Trials will come, some
Harder than others, but if we know Jesus as our Saviour, we
Understand that when we
Reach the end of the trial, we will come out
Stronger – so long as we remember to
Depend on Jesus’ strength
And not our own.
You and I were born with a
Need inside of us to know
Our Creator, but sadly, many fill that hole in their lives with earthly possessions that will
Never truly satisfy. If only
Everyone on Earth would realize that
Man cannot live by
Bread alone, but by
Every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Real treasure is found in Heaven,
Not on Earth; and yet mankind,
In their selfishness and foolishness, insists on only striving for their earthly
Needs – never taking thought for
Eternity – whether
They will spend it on the
Elysian shore of Heaven, or in the flaming
Embers of Hell. God forces
No one to come
To Him – eternity in Heaven or
Hell is entirely up to mankind themselves.
