Winter Bliss ~ A Poem for Christmas by Kurt W. Bubna

Mother and son outdoors at winter

Winter bliss, a gentle kiss, a season of good cheer

A time for love, a time for us, a special time of year

The twinkling lights, the warm delights, a host of heaven hear

A cry from every desperate heart for Jesus to be near

Snowfall in winter Park

In Him our hope and comfort found

In Him our fears relieved

In Him our voices find their sound

In Him we rest and breathe

Glacier Park in winter

What is this crowned within our souls

That carries us to peace?

A knowing deep, we are complete

His own, His love, His keep.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

You are loved,

Kurt

Voices 2 Many Words

{Introductory note: I believe in listening. I embrace the wisdom of getting counsel from godly men and women. By no means am I encouraging any arrogant attitude of isolating ourselves from the voices of others. However, we must be careful to listen first and foremost to the Voice of the only One who is our Lord. Furthermore, too often we worry too much about what others think or we let even our self-voice distract us from “a whisper” clearly from Him.}

So many voices

Multiplied choices

A word here

A comment there

Sounds everywhere

A thought

A lot

A terrible plot

Now left to wander in despair

 

So many tears

Multiplied years

A regret here

A failure there

Cries everywhere

A look

Some took

Forsook

What hope is ever found near

 

My eyes are dry

My heart is bruised

My mind confused and lacking

But in this moment

Despite the cracking

I hear another voice break through

 

A whisper clear

A song so dear

A melody of peace

Hold on, it rings

Stay close, it sings

Press on amidst the stings

 

One voice

One sound

One hope is found

One way to be set free

One moment now

One heart to bow

One Lord is all I need

Voice of God

Sometimes Hold On Wall

Life the mystery Dark Alley
Sometimes heartache
Sometimes pain
Sometimes struggle
Sometimes rain

Sometimes WaveLife the ecstasy
Sometimes grand
Sometimes coy
Sometimes filled
Sometimes joy

Life the journeySometimes Kite
Sometimes left
Sometimes right
Sometimes new
Sometimes bright

Sometimes Course BoatThe question now
Before you and me
Will we accept the life He leads?
Will we be true
And stay the course
And hold the path of His endorse?

Will we hold on Sometimes Hold on Kid
Though holding’s hard?
Will we press on
When hope seems far?
Will we embrace the mystery
In faith of His great mastery?

For life . . . in Him, is everything!

  1. For myself; the picture of the kite seems to be a good anagoly of my Christian life. It’s been up and down as the wind seems to blow me along and in the past it would just flop due to my lack of effort.

    However, during periods of not living my life as God would want me to, I missed him and knew something critical was missing. You can’t fly a kite without wind giving you direction and until I got back in track and started living the life God wanted me to I really had no purpose or direction.

    He still needs to drive and keep my kite in line everyday it seems and for that, I’m grateful. What would I do or be without God love’s and blessing?

Paul Miller(I wrote this after spending some time in prayer for my friend who is suffering.

I’m sharing it with you to ask you to pray with me for him.)

Strong, tender, sometimes stubborn like me

True, faithful, anointed is he

A guy you can trust

A man of his word

An ally

A champion

A friend when life’s blurred

Through shadows of darkness

And storms of great pain

He has stayed the course over

And over again

In moments of doubt

And despite days of despair

He worries of others

And seeks out their care

I weep for his burden

I ache for his loss

Were it possible somehow

I would carry his cross

Yet still in this season

Filled with questions and great tears

I thank God for Paul

And for all of these years

A man you can count on

Through the thick and the thin

My brother

My buddy

My hero

My friend
