Today’s Tea Tidbit:
A Loving Recipe for a Perfect Cup of Tea
I — willing friend who loves to sit and share
I — grateful heart to have a friend that cares
I — beautiful garden to show us God is near
Today’s poem is my own original free verse poem.
The Savior’s Entreaty
by Kelly F. Barr
My Beloved, why have you turned from me?
Why do you mock, disbelieve, and ignore my word?
Movies, youtube, social media, video games–
Worldly technology consumes your time.
You seek constant entertainment and your own selfish desires;
Rushing from one thing to another, no time to rest–
To rest in my loving embrace nor time to seek my face.
My heart aches for you and I shed tears for you.
I still speak to you, but you do not hear my still, small voice.
The blood I poured out for you means nothing to you;
Bu you still mean everything to me.
The battle raging inside you is real, don’t ignore it.
My stripes still heal, and someday soon I’m coming.
Until then my saints will continue to pray and reach out to you.
For my heart’s desire is that NONE SHOULD PERISH.
