Time, Moving Image Of Eternity

I saw you come in, a wee, naked babe,

a wee, naked babe on the threshold.

You grew to become a curious child,

eyes of wonder, pure as gold.

Soon you were in your youth

when you were determined and bold.

You matured into a mighty man,

rough, tough, and self-controlled.

I saw you go out, a staggering man,

a staggering man of old,

to make way for a new, wee, naked babe,

a new, wee, naked babe on a fresh threshold.

A babe follows another babe to welcome a new year.

Farewell to days of old, and greetings to days to unfold.

Time, moving image of eternity.

Sight to behold.

I am a Christian writer who uses the gifts and hard work of writing to express my faith and to share messages about God with others. Writing to me is about creating messages about my experiences and the life we have in our relationship with God. Writing poetry for me began in 2004, when I was looking for a poem to send out for Christmas and I could not find anything suitable. As a result, I began to write Prayers to Jesus Christ, which was my very first poem. Then I began to write poetry about life, love, time, family, special occasions and other topics like gardening. God then inspired me with a desire to write about an inexhaustible topic, Him - His love, forgiveness, mercy, power, and His daily help and presence in our lives! The context of my writing is not limited to poetry alone, but also short stories. The creativity of writing is a necessity to me, as it allows me to express my relationship with God and to share my faith with people in order that their lives can be touched and transformed in a special way as they read the messages I have written. I pray that through my writings that God will be honoured through all that I write and that those who read my poetry will be touched by the hope Jesus brings into our lives.
