January


Chill and serene
A word from a dream
A voice crystalline
January

Unmoving white steel
Dark grey streaked with teal
Flame cloaked in ice shield
January

The spear in the loom
The brine in the bloom
The kiss tipped with gloom
January

The silver snakes chance
Grieved winds for a dance
Sharp diamond romance
January

The clear-eyed deep sleep
The prize winter reaps
Blue sun in black deep
January

The breath braced with might
Stars fuel for the fight
A cold dawning light

January

24. Penance, a sacrament for forgiveness after baptism.

25. That the King James Version of the Bible is the only trustworthy translation of God's written word.

26. That Christians can continue living a sinful lifestyle and still be saved; because they are once saved always saved.

27. Under the New Covenant God chooses some men to be saved and all the others to burn in hell.

28. That water baptism is not essential for forgiveness from sin.

29. God says we are saved by grace alone; therefore we do not have to obey by believing in Jesus or being baptized in water.

30. That Saul was saved by simply believing in Jesus, on the road to Damascus.

32. There are many ways to heaven, Jesus is just one of many Saviors.

NONE OF THE 34 ARE FOUND IN THE BIBLE.

Hey you! Serendipity led me to your blog! What a long strange trip this thing called life is, eh? It feels like just yesterday you were a kid writing on this blog, and I was ensconced in a life that I can only remember in a golden haze. So much has changed for us both, but it made me happy to see you are still writing; kind of took me back in memory. anyway, just wanted to let you know I was here and thinking of you.
