Christianity

A Gift of God

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

 Jesus is the Door to heaven…Salvation is His Gift.

You cannot earn,

borrow,

buy,

steal,

join,

inherit

or work your way to heaven…

Salvation is a gift of God…least any man should boast.

Those Years of Yesterday                                     

~

Standing in the stillness, the snowflakes falling ‘round;

Peaceful voices softly whisper of the memories to be found.

Friends and families gathering, there’s closeness once again;

So long ago, those times and faces: those memories creeping in.

~

The fleeting years have faded so much of what has been:

Some gather now, like yesterday, as if it was back then.

It seems like not so long ago, a time when we were young:

Growing old was impossible; drifting apart just wasn’t done.

~

Truth removes illusion with the passing of the time;

And things appear as they used to be, but only in our minds.

It will never be the same again; the way it was, the way we were;

The times have changed, life moves on; the past becomes a blur.

~

Standing in the stillness, the snowflakes falling ‘round;

Peaceful voices softly whispering of the memories to be found.

A tear springs from my heart to kiss the newly fallen snow:

I realize that it’s time to let this moment go.

~

I can walk along the back roads of my memories anytime:

And find so many waiting thoughts, these shadows in my mind.

The mist of once upon a time will always have its say;

As friends and families gather in those years of yesterday.
