poetry

Original poetry: The Real Me

I wrote the following biographical poem to introduce myself.

I am from black dirt, rocks and gras

I am from wind chimes, front porches and swings

I am from humming birds kissing my cheeks to say hello

I am from children laughing while playing in the pool

I am from four wheelers and lawn mowers roaming around the yard

I am from Mama and Daddy, Meemax and Papa, Grandma and Granddaddy and family gatherings.

I am from sweet tea, morning coffee and chicken and dumplings

I am from chickens in a pin and running lose in the yard.

I’m from living in the city and coming back to my country home.

I am from books, stories and recorded voices reading to me from day to day.

My childhood imagination has grown with me

To tell stories that the Lord has laid on my heart.

I am from bouncing balls, trampolines and toys from yesteryear

I’m from a life full of memories, laughter and tears.

My blindness doesn’t define me,

I’ve seen the world with my heart

Through sound, touch, taste and sometimes smell,

Though my eyes don’t work

My life has been filled with light through the years.

The light of Jesus continues to flow from my heart, through my fingers onto the page

As my writing reaches readers

from every walk of life and age.

Even though I’ve flown away for a time

And left my country family home

My roots brought me back

Never more to roam.

The city life I left behind

To take a closer walk with Thee,

In this country life I find,

The Lord uses his gifts of nature

To speak wisdom and inspiration to me!

I challenge you to write a biographical poem of your own and post it on your blog. When you do, be sure to ping back to this post, so I can see your work.

Hugs,

Ann

Excerpt:

Chapter Four

Why the Men?

Throughout both the Old and New Testaments, God called and used men. We

have Joshua, Moses, Samuel, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Jonah, just to name a few.

We have phrases like “mighty men of valour,” “men of war,” and “gather all the

men.” We have the Levites and the Twelve Spies. There are numerous accounts

in the various books of the Bible where the function of men is recorded.

In the New Testament, Jesus Christ called twelve and one betrayed

Him. However, we find Paul, Timothy, Mark, and many more who did not

betray Him, as we examine the pages of Scripture.

I Corinthians 11:3—“But I would have you know, that the head of

every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the

head of Christ is God.”

Observation No. 1: The head of Christ is God, even though they are one.

John 17:22—“And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them;

that they may be one, even as we are one.” John 10:30—“I and my

Father are one.”

Observation No. 2: The head of man is Christ.

Observation No. 3: The head of every woman or wife is the man. Gen.

2:24—“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall

cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

A husband who lives in obedience to the Word of God would be every

godly wife’s desire; however, there are those women whose husbands are not

God-fearing.

We have come to a place where we realize there are a lot of hurting

women, whether in the church or out of the church; emotional hurts have

no boundaries.

Surely we can find single parents everywhere, teenage sons on drugs,

men selling and using dope, sexual perversion, sexual immorality, and much

more. If left alone, we will soon have a headless society. If you can identify

with this growing problem, let’s do something, about it.

I’m a Christ follower who lives in beautiful Colorado with my wonderful husband, two awesome boys, and rescue pups. I write inspirational Christian romantic suspense stories that are Gospel centered and intertwined with God’s love and plan of redemption. Without the Gospel, we’re powerless!

I have a passion for the Word. I love to study the Bible, especially with my kids! I’m also a homeschool mom and love most minutes of it. When time allows, you can find me cooking and playing with my latest kitchen gadget. (But I hate ironing and I could really use a laundry fairy.)

I pray my writing inspires, makes you smile, and teaches you something about Christ and His love. Remember, if you can you read, you can learn anything!

God bless!
Soli Deo Gloria!
