A poem I wrote just now.:)

The Cross

There's nothing pretty about the

cross my Savior"Christ" hung from.

At the very beginning of time he knew

the reason he had to come.

Our blackened sin he had to wear for

all the world to see.

Tis the only way that he could truly

set his people free.

The beauty of the cross is this..that

LOVE was hanging there.

And on that cross we all could see

his compassion EVERYWHERE.

His determination to do the will of

his Father was very strong.

He wanted to take his children home

where they do all belong.

So when you think of that cross and

the shame our Savior bore...

think THIS... that our sins are

gone.. to be remembered never more.

Morning Val!!!!!!!!
Not doing to bad except Monday my knee gave out when I was cleaning out my front flowerbed & thank goodness I feel in the dirt & not on the stone part or I'd really be in trouble, so now I'm sore & a little black & blue but I got the front bed done except for taking the leafblower over the stones to get rid of the leaves!!!!!!
I even have the side drive way bed a third done & I've decide that since the iris there are popping out of the ground I'm going to dig them up & split them up & plant in the front flowerbeds!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE YOUR POEM!!!!!!!!!!!!
TY so very much for sharing it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
