Sweet Aroma.....

† † † † † † † † Sweet Aroma

Encouragement to those who stray

A word of love divine

Moral support showing The Way

Is service through The Vine

Sweet aroma to countless lost

Blessings who heed The Call

On mountains, seas where winds have tossed

Helping who fail and fall

The bride of Christ has much to share

Has much the world to give

With hand shakes here, charity there

Weíll help neighbours to live

All eyes can see the things we do

Hear the words we speak

Loving, guiding His chosen few

Aiding both strong and weak

No colour bar, no age concern

Christian pagan or Jew

The world at large should come to learn

That Heavenís grace is true

Salvationís real for you and I

For boisterous soul and meek

The Way so man will never die

For all the world to seek

Through Christ, lifeís Way has been revealed

Through Christ lifeís Path is clear

Those Heavenís saved and tightly sealed

Should serve the lost down here

This Truth; we need to understand

The gospels clear & plain

We cannot shirk the work at hand

When truly born again.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
