"Writing on the Wall"


“Writing on the Wall”

cji
4/24/17

Deaf, dumb, blind, arrogant
refusing to believe Scriptures
seeking signs and miracles
missing all that’s found
refusing to believe today
wanting only dead Prophets
wanting only man’s words
missing the writing on the wall
till too late embraced in death
spiritual death accepted
nothing into nothing taught
without body and passions
deaf, dumb, blind, arrogant!

"A Sabbath Thought"


“A Sabbath Thought”

cji
4/23/17

1 Peter 3:7 means eternal
over and over in my mind
this I know to be true always
‘…heirs together forever…’
dating my eternal bride
mentioned this over and over
man’s till death do you part
made no sense – never has
marriage is eternal – forever
and on each Sabbath Day
when partaking of Sacrament
ringing in my mind is always
a Sabbath thought eternal
thought I’d share with you !

"Apathy"


“Apathy”

cji
4/22/17

Apathy is so prevalent
as if a gas in the air
young people losing
finding no path to follow
except least resistance
whatever is happening
whatever they’ve to do
matters not – nothing at all
taught there is nothing
six enclosed walls
creatio ex nihilo
whatever is okay
sadly in adults too
selfishness infested
breathing in the gases
selling their lives short
so prevalent is apathy!

"Fading Away"



“Fading Away”

cji
4/21/17

Fog moving in to remove
fading away what’s seen
till nothing more is there
as if nothing every was
much like the mind denial
refusing to believe truth
fading away any substance
taking from the reality
chasing molecules mixed
just the gray massive
covering one’s view
eternity never to see
memories going blank
amid the moving fog
as if nothing is nothing!

"Pittance"


“Pittance”

cji
4/20/17

We’ve not much to talk about
car in the driveway and kids
neighbors who we know well
small neat homes for most
some in apartments too
a pittance compared today
wealth and power they’ve
we’ve got love and compassion
a pittance to some we know
but the world to each of us!

"Interminable"



“Interminable”

cji
4/20/17

Unending the love of this nation
America stood up to be counted
clean fresh air filled the nation
back room elitist’s hateful
led by the most vile types
greedy, lustful, despicable
actors/actresses ugly
wearing their make-up
thinking themselves something
interminable is their bile
nothing compared to ours
and our love of America!

"Reciprocate"


“Reciprocate”

cji
4/20/17

Give and take no longer
dnc lost the election
yet failing to reciprocate
failing to help the nation
failing the people of America
failing the Constitution
failing to be human beings
wanting to take all give none
greedy parasitic beguilers
passing off as Americans
and doing a very poor show!

"Widdershins"


“Widdershins”

cji
4/19/17

Seeking to destroy America
basically by any means possible
the left and those hateful minions
rioting and defacing and lying
seeking to destroy freedoms
wanting no more responsibility
wanting no more accountability
only the few to rule all the rest
striving with widdershins all ways
caring not of methods or fairness
caring not of the innocent lost
education has dumbed down
this newest generation lost
beguiled and seduced
ruined almost at birth
seeking to destroy America
feeling it’s their right to do so!

"Whisper to Me, Father"


“Whisper to Me, Father”

cji
4/18/17

Often times when very young
walking miles upon untold miles
back roads and dark at night
needing comfort calling Father
‘whisper to me, Father’ quiet
then walking further, darker
conversing with my brother
feeling more comfortable in him
not sure I was worthy of Father
thoughts flooding my mind
quietly the still small voice
comforting me always then
requiring me to have faith
then unlocking my feelings
to the promptings of Spirit
when running towards home
not here but so far away
only a distant memory then
needing Father’s reassurance
walking miles upon untold miles
often times when very young!

"Now of the 40 Days"


“Now The Forty Days”

cji
4/17/17

Given the resurrection
now for the 40 day ministry
wherein the Savior taught
ate, slept, spent time
with the Apostles/disciples
answering questions of all
organizing His Church
(same as His Church today)
but most of all reassuring
that he was alive and well
a physical body flesh/bone
leaving no doubt to any
yet seems not to be taught
within the Christian churches
pondering why or why not
wherein he and his Father
our Lord and Savior
both as testified by many
have such corporal bodies
able to be touched/seen
whiter did many testify
of the forty days after
the resurrection occurred!

"This Day"

Lest we forget this is the day representing the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ – completing the Atonement so that ‘death’ could be removed from those who inhabited this earth – each and every one – none excluded – with the exception of those who through disobedience to the Commandments have found to excluded themselves from eternal life in the Celestial Kingdom (spoken of by Paul – and throughout the Scriptures of our returning to dwell with the Father and the Son. This is a literal truth of the Scriptures -  taught then and now by living Prophets. Too many have taken this literal truth and re-defined it into a meaningless avenue taken by mistake in the Scriptures – and therefore but folly in the context of Greek Philosophy. When one doesn’t understand that the Father and the Son each have resurrected bodies of flesh and bone and have prepared for those who’re worthy homes (mansions) eternal with our families and loved ones if found worthy (in obedience with all of the Commandments – and in repentance when we fall short of the mark). Over and over in the Scriptures we are invited into the sanctuary of the Lord – for the eternal ordinances – and so few accept the invitation and of those who do – few live up to the covenants they make within his House – i.e. the Holy Temple. There’s a Scripture, ”Doctrine and Covenants 121:34 Behold, there are many called, but few are chosen. And why are they not chosen? 35 Because their hearts are set so much upon the things of this world, and aspire to the honors of men, that they do not learn this one lesson— 36 That the rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness.”  I fervently pray all might seek to understand the singular importance of this event – the Resurrection and Atonement of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ – as represented this day in his name even Jesus the Christ amen.  c/ork






“This Day”

cji
4/16/17

This is day is most important
representing the resurrection
the world pauses to ponder
what it is they believe to know
wherein many believe not
while many do believe what
this Sabbath Day important
the reason and purpose of life
the purpose of this world
allowing agency to succeed
right choosing right always
while others wander away
this day – this Sabbath Day
our Savior made atonement
for all men/women born here
forever and ever and ever
matters not what’s believed
it happened and it was for us!

"An Approach"


“An Approach”
cji
4/15/17
Commercialized beyond recognition
this weekend always variable today
from a heathen holiday of spring
into somehow a Christian one
by John Chrysostom c. 349 – 407
when the only time  many came
to his mass or even to the church
was this one Sunday of the year
therefore adopted and changed
but how many know of history
an approach to be understood
this one most important event
of human history of all eternity
without which man would not be
for the Savior Jesus Christ
voluntarily gave his life for us
when he took it back resurrected
to be touched, eat, and converse
with first his followers present
then with the other tribes spread
who were not of this sheep fold
this was Jesus living and sharing
flesh and bone resurrected
making this the eternal atonement
to that all men/women could live
removing death from the world
an approach to understanding
especially for those seeking truth
sadly many unable to hear
blinded unable thus to see
beyond feelings unable to discern
this an approach to Salvation
our Savior – the Son of God
doing for us what none else
shamefully stolen by the world
commercialized beyond recognition!

"Thinking for Oneself"

Not for everyone - c/ork


“Thinking for Oneself”

cji
4/14/17

Shrinking into the walls of pink
decrying their futile fortunes
living off of parents/society
believing rhetoric and guile
wetting their pants/panties
after drugs and entitlements
wallowing in their commonness
filled with vomit and tears
being paid pelf to revolt
causing hate and riots
ambushes and murder
without conscience known
self-indulgence embraced
no longer thinking for oneself
mindless minions of evil
professing to be doing good
while ignorant of any reality
these our youth, young adults
females of persuasion forfeit
within their walls of scarlet
pretending to be passion pink!

All of the above we seek

inner warmth and quiet
seeking after these things
as covenanted to do
in this mortal probation!

“We Have Endured”

cji
4/13/17

Each has trials tribulations
called by the Son to endure

without judgment or worry
doing what we’re called to do
we have endured and will
continue to do so always!

in our service and tasks
we hope all things!
