Poetry for Roaches

This Poem (if You can call it that) Is written in Memory of a crazy adventure Jen and I had this weekend in Toronto.

I'm Sure Jen Will Expand Further on her Blog!

Poem #1.
Jen and Tamar
they drove up by Car
to a House in Ole Toronto

When they got there,
the smell in the Air
was enough for them
to want to leave Pronto!

They were told to behave,
both tried to be Brave!
Even though the Place was a State!

They wouldn't wimp out
instead the'd Camp out ,
Then they noticed a Roach on a Plate!

By then it was too late
they had locked up the gate.
To the Hotel they wanted to drive.
So Around the Block they would walk ,
It was 12:oo O'Clock
They were blessed that they made it alive!

The car was still there,
Praise the Lord for that!
Nothing broken and the tires
they were not flat!

Leaving Roaches behind
with a warm bed in mind,
Off to a Hotel they drove.

To have a real shower ,
that actually had a curtain,
made them fans of the Best Western,
for Certain!

Leaves getting their Color

This weekend we were away in Toronto at the "Its a New Season " conference At Hope Centre.

One Lady stood up and was talking about the beauty the Color of the Fall leaves. She said , The leaf doesn't actually have to do anything in order to Turn color. It is changed by its environment.

In the same way she related that to how we become transformed into the beautiful creation God has destined for us.

A lot can be said for the environment we are in and were and how we choose to spend it.

God time is truely transforming....not always comfortable but always transforming ...All we need to do is seek Him and the rest is Up to Him.

Amazing how a little time in His Presence burdens can be lifted, truth can be revealed, Hope can be imparted and we are transformed...bit by bit...

Till we become like the bright red Maple Leaf!
Beautifully telling the world What environment it has been in!

I Love How creation tells of Gods Heart!
