A Little Fun

Just wanted to throw a bit of fun your way. My son and I are silly and it is rarely captured. My daughter I catch all the time but rarely are we caught but here is a treat… we are silly. Sometimes lightening the mood lights the load. God created laughter after all. So being fun honors Him. ❤

Silly Bad Poetry Written By Me

Songs That Shouldn’t Have Been Written

When songs are written with a pen
And they these songs are sung again
But other ears are never asked
If sense is made of what was taked
And no one else can comprehend
This weird thought pattern that you penned
And what you wrote could never be
Understood by any you or me,
Well that is when the song you wrote
Should maybe have never left your boat.

Bad Dreams

Bad dreams come to the young
And they come to the old
They come to discourage rest from sleep
They bring you a mish mosh
Of unpleasand thoughts
They mix your fears with a glob of unease.

Sporting A Superlong Goatee

Nothing says I am a manly man
And not a goatlike man at all
Like a long goatee with shaven cheeks
As long as you are tall.

These wonders are great to behold
They scream “Please braid me now
Or trim me and I will look nice”
And it should be done somehow.

Fear of the Dark

Irrational Fears can often attack the mind.
Fears of hurt or pain or the color puce
But none is more common than the fear of dark
And nothing is of littler use.
For half our lives is lived in dark
And half in light as well
And where we can switch on a light for a bit
We can see that it always prevails.

Silly Moods

My content is generally focused and borderlines on the severe-ish side of growth and restoration and salvation. While every bit of that is necessary to our salvation and restoration and in the healing of our country, I also want to pursue a little nuttiness and show that we don’t always have to be somber and serious or even poignant.  I believe that God was particularly silly when he created the platypus, for instance. And what was going through His mind when he made blow fish? Have you studied the chameleon’s eyes and wondered about it’s maker? And me. I look in the mirror and am amazed how well I clean up. All these things fascinate me. The way my daughter, who is 3, helps her big brother, who is 8, remember the states and capitals or the Presidents in order cracks me up. The way the brain works is bizarre. How 3 people can hear the same sentence and get 3 distinct and contradictory things out of it boggles my mind. How one person interprets art that my daughter could paint as a masterpiece is extraordinary to me. The point is that there are a myriad of authentic and natural sources of sheer folly in this world. We have joy in us when we become Christ followers and are filled with the Holy Spirit. Yes, things are serious and important, but no, we don’t always have to be serious. We need enjoy life and enjoy our joy, which strengthens us. We need to be joyful and laugh and as therapy bust out an I Love Lucy episode now and then. This lighter side of life can help minimize pain and laughter heals. We need to laugh. I need to laugh right now. And when you are the saddest, have a good cry and get it out but stop dwelling on it… get laughing as soon as possible. Smile and wave to a random unknown citizen. Open the door for someone else and comment on the great pickles the place had, no matter what type of institution you just came out of. Whatever it is, take your salvation and responsibility seriously but don’t take yourself or life too seriously. There will be laughter in heaven. Ya have to practice up for it.
