(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in plank-free Bible reading and reflecting and living for Great Things in store”)

You are living your life a sordid past.

Your great future commands have not arrived.

Or have they and you’re too much self-lambaste?

“Bast” or “baste?” Neither, “lamb,” when love deprived.

I try to live by The “Great Future” Book:

The Bible, Commands of Great Things in store.

I open It up to any page. Look!

Then, I remove the plank from my eyes’ sore.

“Teacher, what is The Greatest of The Great?”

“That’s easy,” says Jesus. “Greatest Great: LOVE!”

Nothing else comes close, certainly not hate

and never pride, the fall after the shove.

We are all facing troubles doomed “done for.”

Love God, love you, love me: Great Things in store.
