LUCKY LEFTOVERS

LUCKY LEFTOVERS

Coming to work today,

The outlook is okay…

Pizza and fish,

What more could one wish

For a gastronomic forray?

Kindness is to respond,

Today was above and beyond…

I mean to assure

My motives are pure,

Accepting food of which I am fond.

Praise to God for provision, *

Prepared without my decision…

Sparrows are fed**

And so I am led,

My heart having seen circumcision.***

–Jonathan Caswell

* Philippians 4:18-20

** Matthew 6:26-28

*** Colossians 2:11

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
