        Sometimes the waters run rough,
        While the river carves its course;
        The streams can be gentle ripples,
        Or rage with the rapid’s force.

        Sometimes there is a call to action,
        Other times a call to rest,
        But always – ALWAYS! — we are required,
        To put the spirits to test.

        Arguments should not be formulated,
        In the thrashing of the sea,
        They should await the reserved calmness,
        So as to disarm the enemy.

        Every believer is so unique,
        No two individuals think the same,
        Patience must be sensibly employed,
        Criticism should edify — not maim.

        Little can be accomplished in anger,
        But mountains can be moved with love,
        To achieve peace with the opposition,
        You must follow the Guidance from Above!

        We learn from our mistakes,
        We apologize when we are in error,
        The Body of Christ is special,
        In that it lifts opponents up in prayer.

        Let us wisely keep the Watch,
        Let us not compromise our conviction,
        Passion and fervor serve a purpose,
        But it should never create friction.

        May God bring peace to RITA,
        May its members be forever blessed,
        When Jesus finally Raptures us,
        We will all have Eternal Rest.

        God bless you all!!

          It is nice to see the old site back up again.  I want to thank you for thinking enough about this poem (which I penned under a temporary pseudo-name many years ago) to post it on this new site.

          I am honored — thank you!

            Welcome to a kind of resurrection.  Of your creation, Humbly Irrelevant.  It is the reestablishment of a precious environment for all of us, one you, Tom, myself, and hundreds of other brothers and sisters recognized years ago.  Thank you Lord God, for your provision / your miracle / this site’s reestablishment.

                  Thank you My White Stone and Donna!

                  As I mentioned to Tom, although some of us have had some differences of opinion in the past, it is amazing how time, age, and experience helps us to reflect upon our personal paradigms, to reshape our perspectives, to gain wisdom, and to move forward with love and in positive ways so as to shed God’s Light the best we can.

                  I appreciate you reaching out to me and I also look forward to continued bonding prior to our departure from this earth to our eternal destination in Paradise!.

                  God bless you!
