Seven bowls with seven plagues
Twelve jeweled foundations
Twelve Pearly Gates
Flowing east a river
clean and clear like a crystal
bearing life to our souls and a sea once thought barren
no death, no tears, no fear and no sorrow
no sun and no moon
the lambs light we will follow
Cast off your baggage
pure hearts will come in
The Celestial City
God’s Grace You will Win
I’m not doing very well writing a poem a day for the National Poetry month, when it came to Celestial Jerusalem, ashamedly ( as I told DanishDoll), I had to google to get a true understanding, to my dismay the information that came up was from Revelations. I’ve not read very much in Revelations for the same reason I don’t watch scary movies…anyway I got over my scaredy self and started reading…I want to live in the New Jerusalem…and Revelations ain’t that scary (yet =) I may even watch Cape Fear or something Hitchcock…or maybe not.
In other news:
Braylon is doing very well! He and our Granddaughter Jacklyn went to Ft. Benning, Georgia for our Grandson Reeces Turning Blue Ceremony.
Barry and I plan to go to the Graduation Ceremony in the morning, after graduation the kids will come home for 10 days, they’ll pack their belongings and head to Ft. Carson, Colorado. We are So Proud of them!
Nash is proving to be a Great Big Brother, Nova Rae makes that easy.
Our Granddaughter Mara has one week of finals left…then she’ll be finished with her freshman year at West Georgia, she’s done very well, she’s a a science major…We’re really proud of her too!
that’s her in the middle of her sorority sisters, I think their Tri-Deltas, they do good work for St. Judes Childrens Foundation
Our roof still isn’t finished, but it’s a lot closer than it was…I think they’ll be done in a another 3 days…or so =/

We’ve had a lot of rain…
the dogs love
“When streams are ripe and swelled with rain”
