11-6 All Saints’ Day

Many churches celebrate this Sunday accordingly. In the NT Christians are considered saints. At times I am saintly in thoughts, desires, and actions in proportion to following our Lord–and at times flat-out demonic (in thoughts, at least).

This one came out of life’s heartaches and traumas:

 

Come to me…

—Mt. 11:28

Sieged by pathogens—air or fluid borne…

When days sludge like years as time stills, to mourn…

As hems of life become tattered and worn…

 

There is a hand for the broken to clasp.

 

If one succumbs to the deceiver’s schemes…

Restless nights as the soul in silence screams…

When bodies fail and life bursts future dreams…

 

Reach for the Lamb, whose help is within grasp.
