THE “RIGHT” WORD

Many animals have lost their lives in the Western wildfires. Many pets have been misplaced and/or left homeless from the fires as well. Please visit Red Rover’s website at https://redrover.org/2020/10/22/westernfires/ to help bring animals from crisis to care.

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in ‘right-word’ living this daily leavened bread”)

You wish you had the right words when on fire.

Something you could say that would extinguish

the flames all around you. It’s time to hire

a supreme fighter of fires. Distinguish

I do for the right words when I’m heated.

“Will I become ashes or will I rise?”

My words can’t cool me off when mistreated.

God’s Word is Love that burns up all my lies.

There is a “right” word when all hope seems lost,

when our unworthiness takes us at heist,

when our insides trail blaze to Holocaust.

It’s just so “right” a word to say: “Jesus Christ!”

Inhale, exhale, and believe what we’ve heard.

Living Waters: Jesus Christ, The “Right” Word.
