Treasure Island

You Know This Is a 'Somber' Moment?


And...
What is so funny?
Do you know 'where' you are?

'I'm sorry reverand.
I didn't intent to interrupt,
Your call for prayer and worship.
I just felt overwhelmed with blessings.
Forgive me.
I'll try to contain my joy.'

You know this is a 'somber' moment?

'Yes!
That's what I don't understand either.
Who knew God would decide...
That 'he who has the last laugh,
Laughs best? '
Would be 'my' experience?
And NOW? !
I had no idea this would be my testimony.

Trust me...
This is God's doings.'

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
