Notebook, Poems, Thoughts and Things I Fancy to Keep

This page is new among my “Second Page” site. I will be adding new material over time as I accrue more journal notes and things that I deem worthy of keeping.

I have listed here some poems I designed, and will be adding more. I will also be adding notes and comments I consider worth keeping.

Some poems are theological based, some are whimsical entertainment. However I wanted to keep them all to see if I can detect improvement over time.



(I forgot what I erased between these lines)



“Nature is not tame and from all indications, neither is God.”  From a blog post by Gary Fultz:       via Nature: Gods Living Room – Gods Ways are…Different

Wilderness exploration can open whole new vista’s in experiencing the power and sovereignty of God in the beauty of His creation. Learning to appreciate the rhythms of nature is to view the rhythms of God, Himself.  I have experienced exploring wilderness deep swamps by kayak, lakes and rivers of Northern Michigan by canoe, and hiking mysterious deep forest dominions.

I discovered early in these adventures that nature has it’s own separate laws enforced by rhythms it follows. It can be very frightening, and exhilarating at the same time. It’s easily understandable that nature has it’s own laws and rhythms, as our Creator, Himself Who designed such a grand realm, has His own laws and rhythms which He abides by. For our good and His Glory, it is well for us to learn these laws and rhythms. It can be a matter of both survival, and adventurous and joyful crowning experience whatever wilderness we find ourselves in.  – G.W.

Additional observation to chew on: Creation’s (Nature’s) complexity, design, and order lead us to acknowledge there is an awesome Being who brought it into existence and maintains it.


NOTES: some more notable than others

  • Arguing with atheist Trolls is like slopping hogs while wearing a tuxedo. It may be fun, but it’s not necessary. Plus, it doesn’t attract respect from either side.
  • Procrastination: “Now yells louder but later last longer.” Desires of the NOW, given, reaps the consequences of later unpreparedness.
  • Don’t meddle where there’s no mettle
  • Don’t step where there is no solid ground


Just For Fun
