“And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the first born from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.”  Colossians 1:18

Someone has to go first.

Thank You, Jesus, for being our Line Leader, our Preeminent One!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Our Preeminent One                                            

You are
above everything
and in everything
You are
our first born
full of glory
our preeminent
Shining Star.


I forgot to mention that we finished 1 Chronicles and get to
go back to the New Testament for Colossians! 🙂 Only, it’s
really short!


“I have taken the Levites instead of the first born of the children of Israel.” Numbers 8:18

I don’t know the theological reason why God did it this way, but my momma’s heart rejoices that families were kept together.

Thank You, Lord, for keeping my family together. And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Miracle Meld

So many damaged families
rent relationships, torn up lives

we have all the same ingredients
yet remain together

another Jesus miracle
in my life.

Saved By The Blood

“Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are.”  Exodus 12:13

The last plague was coming . . .the death of all Egypt’s first born.  Moses instructed the people to kill the lamb they had chosen, dipping a branch of hysop in the blood and striking the lintel and the doorposts.  When the Lord saw the blood, those doors would be passed over and His children would be saved.

Lord, how grateful I am to You for placing Your blood over me.  It’s only by You that I am saved.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

Blood Led

It’s hard to think
of all the suffering
and the amount of blood
that’s been shed,
but there’s a Lamb
without spot or blemish
through whose blood
were saved and led.
