(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in changing ‘that!’ what I must change one Graced Step and one Graced Breath at a time ‘that!’ daily leavened [Jesus Never Changes!] bread.”)
Everyone has at least one “that!” to change.
You know what “that!” is. You have to change “that!”
“But the discomfort of ‘that!’ will derange.”
You got “that!” right. You got “that!” God at-bat.
My “that!” to change is leaving me, “I can’t!”
I got “that!” right. “That!” God can. I’m “fall short.”
Is it “that!” big a deal to change “that?” Grant
me Grace, God, as “that!” deal is of High Court.
“I know discomfort leaves you, ‘Oh my God!'”
says Jesus. “You have to change ‘that!’ through breath.
Breathe in God’s Love, breathe out what is facade.
‘That!’ you are breath of life, not pain of death.”
Do we feel better now “that!” God works at
helping us change “that?” Breathe “God” to change “that!”
(First God Sonnet from GOOD ACRES SANCTUARIES by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope always in a cow named Misty [“Miss Misty,” as I fondly call her], who is blind and yet sees way more than I could ever hope to see.”)
What can you tell me of your blue blind eyes?
Did you once see horrors I’ll never know?
Look at you now! I see for you the “why’s?”
Why blind a blue soul when you see my glow?
What can you tell me of your blue blind eyes?
Did you witness what was mine to unveil?
Look at you now! Capturing all my cries.
Why blind a blue soul when you are my braile?
Blue blind eyes, I was blind but now I see.
What I see is “we,” blue and blind and breath.
I have seen enough to know that it’s “we,”
blue blind eyes and me, until we are death.
Sometimes all we have are those gentle sighs.
Thank you, “Miss Misty,” for your blue blind eyes.

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in choosing lucky over yucky in Kentucky this daily leavened [Jesus is Clutch!] bread.”)
You’re feeling yucky ’cause you can’t admit:
Without Jesus, there’s nothing of meaning.
It’s gonna take surrender and submit,
BOTH, to God and Spirit for convening.
I’m feeling yucky, forgetting lucky.
Lucky am I to have all God all day.
If I could remember in Kentucky
is where God needs me now for square away.
“What is yucky is you uncount lucky,”
says Jesus. “You look at the ‘yuck’ too much.
Look lucky when God removes your ‘mucky.’
You get cleaned of ‘yuck’ when you loosen clutch!”
Did I mention that I’m in Kentucky?
I miss my pets but yucky or lucky?
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in not ignoring the small things for the bigger splash of More God’s Grace of Face this daily leavened [Jesus Bigger the Picture!] bread.”)
It’s the small things that make a bigger splash.
It’s waking up to have the life of breath.
If the small things are not treasured, how stash?
Save them up for when bigger things spell “death.”
It’s the small things I walk by and ignore.
When I give them weight, bigger the Grace.
God designed me to say, “me small, God More.”
Small me humility; More God of Face.
“Do small things for the Bigger the Picture,”
says Jesus. “My Father loves you when small.
Make Us Bigger through the Grace of Scripture.
Make you smaller, moreso that you would crawl.”
The sooner we make Jesus King of Kings,
the sooner we Love Big. It’s the small things.
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in running in’2′ Jesus today this daily leavened [Jesus is ‘2!’] bread.”)
You can’t run away from where God puts you.
Where you are now? Exactly where you be.
If you run away to escape your “2,”
God and you, “2,” too, never “2” can flee.
I try to run away from me most hours.
One Hour, I will not run away from me.
That Hour, I will run in”2″ what is ours:
God and me, “2,” this Hour will make a Plea.
“Do not run away but run in’2′ Me,”
says Jesus. “You can’t escape Me away.
Where you go, I go with you guarantee.
God is guaranteed to go where you stay.”
All our hours, we will go where He go “2.”
Go? Not running away….running in”2.”
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope in traveling my trip today to trusting God and traveling with Jesus for all I need all my ways all my days this daily leavened [Jesus Travels!] bread.”)
Without trust, you travel a trip to fear.
Without a trip to freedom, you’re nowhere.
The hours you travel all ‘lone are unclear.
With God, the trip to trust is The Lord’s Prayer.
I travel a trip often to escape,
to leave behind what threatens who I trust.
When I get back home, what’s there is “take shape.”
The shapes still love me in my wanderlust.
“Travel with Me a trip to trust My Ways,”
says Jesus. “Without Me, you travel ‘lone.
This trip will be all you need all your days.
I’m with you all ways you travel well known.”
We traveled a trip God planned from the dust.
Now, we are traveling a trip to trust.
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in this Leavened-Bread Love Day all day long through the Supernatural Love of Father God and His Son, Jesus Christ.”)
You can’t mystify what’s no mystery:
You were made for greater things than “of world.”
“In world,” you are free to leave “history.”
You’re no longer your past that leaves you curled.
It won’t get easier for me this place
where I am BOTH past AND future at play.
What will get easier is when I’m Grace,
and that’s here and now where God is my “stay.”
“I did Love back then. I’m Loving right now,”
says Jesus. “Nowhere you need be but here.
Your journey is to Love even ‘nohow.’
‘Nohow?’ How you love God, making you seer.”
Forget past and future, leaving God Strong.
We leave ‘of world.’ It’s Love Day all day long.
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope that I will be My ‘be’autiful! in God’s Eyes this daily leavened [Jesus is Start Being!] bread”)
The world will give you nothing but the fear.
It will tell you, “You’ve got no right to be!”
God will tell you, “Be who you are, My dear.
‘Be you’ is enough. ‘Be Me’ is gutsy!”
The world will give me nothing but, “Stop that!
Stop being who you are! None even care!”
God will tell me, “Start being ‘I work at.’
I work at you ’cause you are why I’m Prayer.”
“Be everything God wants for why I’m Me,”
says Jesus. “Nothing you be is corrupt.
God sent Me to be who you be at 3.
World, 4, is NOT who you be. It’s disrupt!”
“Just for today, be one who’s dutiful,”
says God. “The world’s wrong. Be My ‘be’autiful!”
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in never I need carry shame and never turning my face away from Who forgives me this daily leavened [Jesus High on The Tree!] bread.”)
You turn your face away for fear of “seen.”
“Seen” in your shame is something you know well.
God tells you of shame, “I’m not One who’s mean.
I turn not my face away when you’re ‘fell.'”
My face falls away when I’m in my shame
which, if I’m being honest, is most days.
God says, “Stop that, Timothy! Your name
is My Love, your shame is never My Ways.”
“My God, My God, why Your Face turned away?”
asked Jesus. God replied, “My Son, My Son,
never I turn My Face from You! Their slay
of You to take their shame was too much ‘stun!’
At that moment, I was pained by The Tree.
‘Cause of Son’s Love, turn not your face from Me.”
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I BOTH cope AND hope to….well, you know the rest 😉)
You are BOTH the sincere AND the hurt back.
You are BOTH the agree AND the offend.
Without balancing BOTH, you got the “crack.”
“Fix” the “false” by the truth that BOTH you blend.
I am BOTH the pull AND the push away.
I am BOTH the lover AND the unloved.
I balance BOTH ’cause I’m just “real” that way.
One day, I will be the BOTH of Beloved.
“BOTH The Father AND The Son are The One,”
says God and Jesus. “One day, BOTH will reign.
Meanwhile, be our BOTH for the everyone.
It won’t be easy but do you want ‘plain?'”
We are talking about how we are “growth?”
Yes, we are, AND it’s just balancing BOTH.
