Holy Words spoken

Holy Words written on scrolls, then books

A Sacred Breath recorded that crowns the Universe;

Holy Words that swallowed death for all time,

Holy Words pierced the veiled human mind and soul

Human spirits made new with Heaven’s treasures indwelling;

Messiah stands always near

His Peace encloses,

His Peace overflows.

Angels of delight take a child’s hand

Leads them away from darkness

And into a life of true love;

Brought safely through every struggle

Victorious in every battle

Triumphant while the war rages on in the heavens

But our Earth to be shaken violently.

The earth trembles, the mountains quake

Those who still walk the land…

I willed my mind to focus, my eyes fixed straight ahead.


We were off. My foot slipped; two of us bumped. I regained momentum, pumping my arms, elbows high. I needed to pace myself or I’d run…
