Puddle Jumping - KneeDeep

 

Time by Sarah Koshiol

It may seem to fly by,

slow, or stand still;

but who can stop it’s hands?

 

Some say it is their enemy.

Some say it’s on their side.

 

We call it money.

We call it a thief. 

In our loss, we feel robbed of it. 

 

It heals. 

We kill it. 

It changes people.  It changes everything. 

 

We ask what it is.  Only it will tell.

You can use it up,

You can run it out;

but you can’t run from it.

 

We need it. 

We make it.  We waste it. 

We spend it.  We save it. We lose track of it. 

We want more of it.

 

What are you doing with yours?

 

time-machine

 

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.”

 

Warmly,

Sarah E.

Puddle Jumping - KneeDeep

 

 I Am Not A Monkey’s Cousin   by Sarah Koshiol

I’m NOT a monkey’s cousin

Not a single person is

We’re over all the animals

No baboon’s my relative

 

We did not evolve from creatures

Crawling out of slime

We were all CREATED

Planned, before the start of time

 

In the beginning God created

A man formed from the dust

He breathed in him the breath of life

And breathes the same in us

 

He designed us each uniquely

Within that secret place

Gave us each a sacred soul

He sent His Son to save

 

So don’t believe their story

If they tell you you’re an ape

A child of the cosmos

Evolved from empty space

 

The blind hold up these foolish lies

The lost choose not to see

But I know there’s a Living God

Or else there’d not be me

 

Stop Following Me!

 

“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it,

and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

[Genesis 1:27-28]

 

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — His eternal power and divine nature –have been clearly seen,

being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

[Romans 1:20]

 

“You are worthy, our Lord and God,

to receive glory and honor and power,

for You created all things,

and by Your will they were created and have their being.”

[Revelation 4:11]

 

Warmly,

Sarah E.
