PostNAILS OF THECROSS


NAILS OF THE CROSS

The nails placed in his hands and feet
Crown of thorns upon his head
pain filled eyes gazing out upon us.
My soul within me cried in agony
as my eyes watered with my tears
Then, Then he raised his head just a bit
looked straight into my eyes and I felt
the pain of the nails wrap around my
soul the words wafting through my ears
“I go to my Father’s house to prepare a
place for you”
I knew then the precious blood of Jesus
washed away my sins and the nails in my soul
would be my reminder each day.
Watching as the rivulet’s of blood ran down his
brow into his eyes I knew I was saved by this
Son of God and I would follow his teachings for
the rest of my days.
As he became weaker his head drooped lower with the Crown of Thorns
digging deeper
Each drop of blood hitting the earth with no sound just small puddles,
had me inching closer to gaze in wonder that this man of God ..no wait Son of
God bled like the rest of us.
Then they brought him down from the cross so his women folk could prepare
him for burial, twas then I noticed where each drop of blood had fallen
a small tree was sprouting up.
Each one a Dogwood tree the bark like the wood of the cross, the flower
with the blood drop in the center like the cross, the petals white for the purity of
Jesus' love for us.
I praise and thank you Jesus for being in my life.

You have some great talent, both in poetry and prose. It would be awesome to see you try your hand at writing your memoirs. I think you'd make it not only an interesting read but would inspire others in great ways.

Oh my what a beautiful comment I have a blog that I write a lot on but never thought about memoirs, not sure I would know how to start, thank you Lora so much for thinking it would be worthy. I would also like to take this time to say how much I appreciate this site although I am not sure of all the navigation so far it is an awesome site and something I am grateful to be accepted in. God bless you !

Awe, you're so sweet. I'm glad you're enjoying my site. I hope it blesses you. As for starting your memoirs, the trick is to just begin and let God handle the details. And, lastly, allow friends, family, and other writers to give you their thoughts and suggestions. I often find that if I pray before I begin, the Lord gives me the words.

i am at a point where I pray constantly and it is sometimes so much a part of my mind , my hubs will be speaking to me and I don;t realize it, but he is a good man and takes care of me and serves the Lord with Gladness.

I'm with Miss Lora, beautiful imagery and a concise wording that doesn't lead one astray. Kept my attention in a beautiful headlock to the end. I think the memoir idea is a great one, also. Blessings

Mr Diles thank you so much for the wonderful comment, I write what is in my heart with Jesus as my co-author at all times. I am still contemplating the memoirs. God bless and keep you!
