Nan

 

God's

glory

brightly shines

for all to see

my heart is open and it shines through me

 

I am a vessel God can use each day

to share His love

and make each

sad heart

glad

 

I can make a difference every day

though I am flawed

my light shines

before

men

 

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

2 Timothy 15

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

Matthew 3:16

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven.

A tetrachtys (tuh trac' tis) expresses a complete thought in five lines and twenty syllables arranged like so - 1,2,3,4,10.   The other tetrachtys are inverted syllable patterns 10, 4, 3, 2, 1.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
