Saying Grace

The old man sits at his table with bowed head and folded hands.
Before him is his evening meal for which he is about to say grace.
He closes his eyes and the words flow from his lips.
With sweet reverence, he thanks God for providing his food for the day.
He thanks God for bestowing His blessings upon him.
He remembers the times when there wasn’t always plenty.
He thanks God that he now has more than enough.
His head is now white and His hands show the passing of time too.
He thanks God for sustaining Him through all the years even into old age.
As he breaks the bread, He remembers how his Lord’s body was broken for him.
As he drinks from his cup, he remembers his Lord shedding his blood at Calvary.
He asks that God will bestow His favor on His family and friends.
He then closes out his prayer by saying, “Amen.”

Nor Can Time Stale Thy Grace

Nor Can Time Stale Thy Grace long poem

Thou bare beauty’s bride of immortals Thou enrapt silence of mystery, who can’t tell thy flowery history And Fair Youth? And unstinted admiration thou bear, All profuse versifiers to thy truth begotten, They lie; of thy mystic gracious beauty, swear.
