The Apostle’s List

The apostle’s list is long of the Spirit’s fruit, With love and peace and joy its strongest suit, But all from a single cloth; under his control He brings a transformation of the soul.

Of love we say too little

Of love we say too little, do we not? And less we act from love with a neighbor near; We nurse our irritations, God’s grace forgot, Our deeds unfeeling and cold, our words severe.

The truth lies dormant

The truth lies dormant, without result, Though well exposed for all to see, Until a seeker comes to consult And before it bows in humility.
