  • The Backsliders Prayer - Oh what will I do, With this mess that I am in. My life is not going right, My heart is full of sin. I got off the narrow way, And can’t find my way back.

Move with compassion, Soon comes the [...]

  • Short Poem - Where did all my time go, is there any way to know. It seems days roll by, hardly time to say hello. When I was very young, everything was slow. I was just thinking, that was not long ago. The sun was up early, now the shadows are here. The day when fast, sleeping time is near. Can’t we slow this down, it [...]
  • First Snow - I woke up this morning and what did I see, A whole pile of snow waiting for me. So with childish gee I got out my shovel, And had it all cleared up without any trouble. Then I thought what a good thing to blog about, So I grabbed my iPhone and pictures did scout. Just [...]

Thinking what, the awful cost, the Christless soul, a life of dross. Of the joy, when saved from sin, please Jesus, one soul let me win. Into my day, with burden deep, second command, [...]
  • What Will You Do - What of the harvest, there it be, ripen grain of humanity. What of the cries, of those lost, all eternity, they bare the cost. What of the souls, that soon shall die, awakened in hell, to groan and sigh. What of your family, that’s still not saved, your mother, father, siblings depraved. What of your children, time moves [...]
  • Children — The Epitome of Purity - Beautiful and lovely, sweet and fine. Stains not there, all divine. Cares in their mind, concern for the soul. Burdens to roll, thoughts behind. Breath scented, smiles wide. Trials unknown, death defied. Innocent children, guileless talk. Spotless life, blameless walk. We love them, sorry to grow. Take time, get to know. Soon gone, memories left. Pictures taken, still bereft. Enjoy, hold. Love, unfold. Gone, taken. Memory, shaken. –Bob Mutch Note: This poems was written with much emotion. While I wasn’t sad or overly happy [...]

  • Embrace Your Trials - Embracing trials with open arms, They waft us up above. They are the chariots sent from God, To purify our love. They come from friends and family, Those that hurt the most. They cause us to walk alone, To ride with angel host. Embrace your lot in this life, Twill all soon be past. Do those things that please the [...]
