Outbreak of Peace

The sun shall ascend in the morning, in a benediction of golden light.
Birdsong shall scatter through the air as brightly as sunlight on water,
butterflies shall rise in ragged flight, seeking out meadow nectars,
and peace shall break out in the peaks and valleys.

The man who works the land shall return, hungry and weary from his toil
to find his house still standing, as it always was before.
The rivers shall leap and dance over rocks and crash into waterfall…

Poem: Capacity for Love

O Lord, stretch my spirit and soul,
for I can handle the pain of growth;
teach me the proper words to speak;
I’m ready and gladly take the oath

my spirit climbs, soars and…

but are not concealed from my God.
Ungodly behaviors can never be hidden,
from Him, Who is omnipotent, omniscient

Shadows of shame, are easily dispersed
by Jehovah’s piercing Light of Truth;
when looking to Him for assistance,
one’s face will become radiant with joy
from acting with loyalty and persistence.

Shadows of shame, contradict God’s desire …

You may or may not agree with Mike Lipkin’s analysis of global trends in the video below but his enthusiasm is infectious.  Alright, it’s a little bit scary sometimes too but mostly his excitement itself is exciting and when you check out what he’s saying objectively a lot of it makes sense whether you like the goats and sheep thing or not. Hope that didn’t sound culturally insensitive.  Apologize if it did.  Here’s the video with Lipkin’s YouTube description below…
