A Tree

There once was a tree that stood broad and tall,
That would serve as a bridge to all that are lost.

A tree that would be cut up but held lots of power,
And bring eternal light to an ungodly hour.

A tree that would reach as high as the heavens,
That would serve as a path for the forgiven.

A tree that was robust and also very stout,
That would open the windows of heaven and pour blessings out.

A tree that would stand between a murderer and thief,
And deliver all nations and to give sin-free relief.

A tree upon which Christ would breathe his last breath on,
And that would one day seat him on his inherited throne.

I will forever cherish that old rugged tree,
For by it was saved a wretch like me.

One day when this life is over, I will lay it all down,
And give it all up in exchange for my heavenly crown.

I am an educator, a wife of 24 years, and mother of three beautiful children. I have taught the word of God to all ages and love to share it in creative ways. I've always had a passion for written expression. Over the years, I have documented my personal thoughts and prayers. Poems, devotionals, worship songs, and more have come from my life experiences. Now, I am ready to share them with the hope that lives and hearts will be changed as well as greatly blessed. I am flawed but striving for perfection in Christ. Although I have fallen short of the glory of God, I am forgiven. I am loved with an everlasting love. I am FREE!
