Two BEtter than none

two lemurs on tree
Father God, thank You that Two, You and Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, BEtter than none. That God Sonnet was inspired by that Bible Verse: “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10). That it’s God and Jesus, Two BEtter than none. That it’s us alone, none of HE. BEtter we seek HE, that better long run. BEtter we of His Peace, that better BE. That world would have us debtor and go-getter (BOTH). You and Jesus would have us that lifted and picked (BOTH) up when we are that ton and spun (BOTH). On a more personal note, Two BEtter for me than none. That i find myself without anyone….God and Jesus, that Two BEtter than none. The two precious raccoons in that picture are Two BEtter than none. But even though they look identical, each one of them is that preciously unique to God and Jesus. As we humans are treated that preciously unique by God and Jesus, God and Jesus treat nonhuman animals like these two precious raccoons that same, yet never that same. Each human and nonhuman animal (BOTH) is treated that preciously unique by God and Jesus, that Two BEtter than none. i pray all of that in the Wonderful and Precious and BEtter Name of Jesus Christ, that Name above every other name, including my own name. That prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are that it’s me alone. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] in that Two [God and Jesus] BEtter than none, that it’s me alone, that it’s this daily leavened bread.”)

That it’s God and you, two better than none.

That it’s you alone, none is the better.

That when you fall, God lifts you up a ton.

you’re a ton for that world wants you debtor.

That it’s God and me, two better than none.

That it’s me alone, none is the better.

That when i stumble, God picks me up spun.

i’m spun for that world wants me go-getter.

“That it’s ME and them, Two BEtter than none,”

says Jesus. “Them alone, that’s none of HE.

BEtter they seek ME, better that long run.

BEtter they of My Peace, that better BE.”

we that find ourselves without anyone….

God and Jesus, that Two BEtter than none.

God’s got our “bAACk”

topless man carrying white puppy on beach during daytime
Father God, thank You that You got our “bAACk.” Aware; it no longer works and no longer peace (BOTH). Acceptance; it needs to change (not BOTH). Change; You can only our quirks and our cease (BOTH). Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, got our “bAACk.” This can all feel like a major drawback until we realize, “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8). When we are estrange, we draw nearer to God. When we need “AAC,” God’s got our “bAACk.” On a more personal note, one “AAC” in my life right now is to no longer play the victim. i’ve played the victim for so, so, so many years, and “it is finished.” It’s painful to “AAC” something that worked for a while….until it no longer works and no longer peace (BOTH). i am NOT a victim as the world would have me believe. i am only AAC from victim to Victory. And if no longer the victim, no longer can there be any villains in my story. God’s got my “bAACk” in all of this. When i am left to consider “victim,” i consider nonhuman animals who are used and abused (BOTH) as part of man’s domination (not dominion). While man is the villain to these nonhuman animal victims, i have the Victory to speak up for them through You, Father God, and my Savior, Jesus Christ. Yes, as the picture informs, when it comes to nonhuman animals, i got their “bAACk.” i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and “bAACk” Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are to play the victim. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] that God’s got my ‘bAACk’ this daily leavened bread.”)

God’s got you Aware; it no longer works.

God’s got you Acceptance; it needs to change.

God’s got you Change; He can only your quirks.

God’s got your “bAACk,” and you know this not strange.

God’s got me Aware; it no longer peace.

God’s got me Acceptance; it needs to change.

God’s got me Change; He can only my cease.

God’s got my “bAACk,” and i know this arrange.

I got their ‘bAACk,’ and I know this as ‘AAC,'”

says Jesus. “Aware, Acceptance, and Change.

I got their ‘bAACk’ when they know ‘AAC‘ drawback.

I draw them to ME when they are estrange.”

Aware, Acceptance, and Change? PANIC ATTACK!

The Calm is when we know God’s got our “bAACk.”

LOSE THE WORLD, GAIN THE SOUL

man in white dress shirt and brown pants sitting on white wooden bench
Father God, thank You that we lose the world, gain the soul. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? (Mark 8:36). If gain world’s approval, we lose our soul. If lose world’s approval, we gain our soul. The world’s goal and poll (BOTH) is to make us think God approves us less whole, that God does not rank first in our lives, thus less console. Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, has the solution to this “less.” “I AM the gaining their soul.” He Approves “BE,” BE God’s Approval, it BE done our soul. What profit there BE if the world we stroll, sought approval? Lose the world, gain the soul. Lose the world, gain Jesus! The picture attached shows a man sitting on a bench who has won an award, obviously admiring his accomplishment. But notice it is just him and his award on the bench. Where is everybody else post the award? This is what gain world’s approval, lose our soul, looks like. We have gained the world, but we have lost everyone and we have lost our soul (BOTH). On a more personal note, i am only writing this because that is me on that bench! i want all the world’s approval of me and, thus, stand a good chance to lose my soul in the process. Thank You, Father God, that you already approve of me whole and, thus, more console. Thank You that i lose the world, gain the soul. Thank You that i lose the world, gain Jesus! i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Gaining Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and belief are gain the world, lose the soul. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] that i lose the world, gain my soul, this daily leavened bread.”)

If gain world’s approval, you lose your soul.

If lose world’s approval, you gain your soul.

If gain God’s Approval, you lose world’s goal

to make you think God Approves less you whole.

If gain world’s approval, i lose my soul.

If lose world’s approval, i gain my soul.

If gain God’s Approval, i lose world’s poll

that ranks others before God, less console.

“If gain world’s approval, you may lose ME.”

says Jesus. “I AM the gaining their soul.

Lose the world’s approval; I Approve ‘BE.’

Gain God’s Approval; it BE done their soul.”

What profit there BE if the world we stroll,

sought approval? Lose the world, gain the soul.

A LOT in a bit of us

photography of whale
Father God, thank You that You are A Lot in a bit of us. Even though this God Sonnet was not inspired by a Bible Verse, the News is Huge and Good (BOTH) that the Bible is ALL about LOVE. It’s about knowing ALL is well and LOVE is ALL (BOTH). It’s about You do care and You LOVE us (BOTH). It’s about when we are dispel, beware, know-all, and not free, Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, is “I AM ALL.” That’s Huge News! It’s about A Lot of JESUS when we’re small. It’s about A Lot of GOD when Jesus is our Muse (a shout-out to God’s Artistry!). It’s about A Lot of BOTH in a bit of us. If we want a lot of this world, we want all things plus and will never be satisfied. If we want Jesus, A Lot in a bit of us that always will satisfy us. On a more personal note, did you know-all that the Antarctic blue whale is the hugest animal on the planet, weighing up to 400,000 pounds (approximately 33 elephants) and reaching up to 98 feet in length? It’s true! Did you also know-all that whether hugest or littlest, God does care about BOTH humans and nonhuman animals and God does LOVE BOTH? It’s true! “The LORD is good to ALL; He has compassion on ALL He has made” (Psalm 145:9). God has A Lot of compassion for BOTH He has made. If we LOVE God, we must have A Lot of compassion for BOTH He has made. That’s Jesus as my Muse (a shout-out to God’s Artistry in me!) i pray ALL of this in the Wonderful and Precious and ALL Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are only a bit of Jesus. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet come by [a shout-out to my therapist, Mark!] timothy j. verret; ‘it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] in A Lot of Jesus in a bit of me this daily leavened bread.”)

There’s a bit of you that knows all is well.

There’s a bit of you that knows God does care.

A bit of these is huge when you’re dispel.

A bit of these is God when you’re beware.

There’s a bit of me that knows love is all.

There’s a bit of me that knows God loves me.

A bit of these is huge when i’m know-all.

A bit of these is God when i’m not free.

“There’s a bit of them that knows I AM ALL,”

says Jesus. “A bit of this is Huge News.

a bit of ME is A Lot of their small.

A Lot of GOD is a bit of their Muse.”

If we want a lot, we want all things plus.

If Jesus, A Lot in a bit of us.

NONE OF PURSUE PEACE….PLEASE?(!)

brown sheep on brown soil during daytime
Father God, thank You that we have Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, for without Him, none of pursue peace….please?(!) This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which none will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). For without Him, 1 of 3, Trinity, Holy, none the Lord and none His please (BOTH). He wants us peaceful for with, adored, light breeze, on board, and He sees. For with, the pleasing of Him. For without, none the pleasing Him. It is BOTH humans and nonhuman animals that we pursue peace….please?(!) The picture attached to this sonnet is not nearly what we see enough, i.e., a nonhuman animal at peace. What we see often enough are nonhuman animals tortured and slaughtered (BOTH) in factory farms, in research labs, in circuses, in rodeos, in zoos, on chains….do i really need to go on? Because i will, unfortunately. None will see the Lord who abuse BOTH humans and nonhuman animals. On a more personal note, of course i care about people and, of course, i pursue peace for and with them (as stated in the Bible Verse). But the Calling of God on my life is to be a nonhuman animal welfare advocate. This is the Call i heed and the Call He will need (BOTH). Others might be human welfare advocates for God and, if so, God bless them and pursue peace….please? But i am a nonhuman animal welfare advocate for God and, as so, God bless me and pursue peace for them….please! For without for BOTH (? and !), none of Him to please. i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and 1 of 3 Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are none of pursue peace….please?(!) Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how I cope to hope [BOTH] to pursue peace for BOTH [humans=please?/nonhuman animals=please!] this daily leavened bread.”)

you pursue peace for without, none the Lord.

you pursue peace for without, none His please.

The Lord wants you peaceful for with, adored.

The Lord wants you peaceful for with, light breeze.

i pursue peace for without, none the Lord.

i pursue peace for without, none His please.

The Lord wants me peaceful for with, on board.

The Lord wants me peaceful for with, He sees.

“they pursue peace for without, none of ME,”

says Jesus. “For with, the pleasing of ME.

I want them peaceful for without, none 3.

Please ME, 1 of 3, Trinity, Holy.”

BOTH humans and animals, BOTH appease.

For without Him, none of pursue peace….please?(!)

“SHOO!” WORDS THAT BREAK BONES

black and white heart illustration
Father God, thank You that we “shoo!” stones and we “shoo!” words that break bones. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “All of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, Be tenderhearted, Be courteous” (1 Peter 3:8). Whoever came up with “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words won’t hurt me” was completely clueless. Words WILL break bones, and they often do. “Shoo!” words were thrown at Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, and while “not one of his bones will be broken” (John 19:36), these “shoo!” words did break His Heart. How do we not break His Heart? Shame none! “Shoo!” none; Be courteous, not come apart. “Shoo!” none; Be tenderhearted, not defame. “Shoo!” stones and “shoo!” words (BOTH) that break bones. On a more personal note, i was bullied mercilessly as a child, and their “shoo!” words hurt me way more than their “shoo!” stones. And i can only know now that they bullied me because they were the insecure ones. i became insecure because of this but only know now that i am secure in His Heart. That’s not to say that i am not insecure sometimes (most times, if i’m being honest), but I can go to Him and His Heart (BOTH) who will “shoo!” stones (“let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her” [John 8:7], and He and His Heart (BOTH) will have no “shoo!” words for me that would break my bones. Please don’t break my heart today; please don’t break His Heart today. Please don’t break someone’s heart today; please don’t break His Heart today. i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Zoneless Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are “broke bones.” Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] in “shoo!”ing all words that would break their bones and my bones, breaking His Heart, this daily leavened bread.”)

Sticks and stones break your bones; your “shoo!” words, too.

your compassion is what will heal broke bones.

Be tenderhearted to all who you “shoo!”

Be courteous to all, “shoo!”ing all stones.

Sticks and stones break my bones; my “shoo!” words, too.

my compassion is what will heal broke bones.

Be tenderhearted to all who i “shoo!”

Be courteous to all, “shoo!”ing all stones.

“their words break bones; they also break My Heart,”

says Jesus. “I didn’t ‘shoo!’ them for shame.

‘Shoo!’ none; Be courteous, not come apart.

‘Shoo!’ none; Be tenderhearted, not defame.”

we break His Heart when we set up “shoo!” zones.

we “shoo!” stones, and we “shoo!” words that break bones.

AS MUCH AS DEPENDS ON GOD

Pin on decorations
Father God, thank You that as much as depends on You for PEACE. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:18-19). On a more personal note, this Bible Verse has ALWAYS challenged me. Why? Because i feel if i had to depend on me to live peaceably with all men, i feel i could NEVER accomplish this. But as much as depends on God for PEACE, i feel i could ALWAYS accomplish this. Maybe this is why Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, said this: “PEACE I leave with you, My PEACE I give to you; NOT as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid(John 14:27). As much as depends on me to live peaceably with all men is to depend on worldly peace. As much as depends on God to live peaceably with all men is to depend on the PEACE of JESUS! Not that i am looking to rewrite Romans 12:18-19; only that i am looking to live peaceably with all men as much as depends on God. And speaking of “i” and “all men” (BOTH), i release them as i push through; i decrease me to be set free (BOTH). For lease is “i” and “all men.” For sale? Forever Home, Forever Him, “the Lord is my Shepherd, BOTH staff and rod” (Psalm 23:1, 4). I LOVE that picture for this God Sonnet! Speaking of “rewriting,” I would change only one word of that picture, and that is the word, “it,” for a dove is not an “it” but a living, feeling being just like humans. This goes for sheep for PEACE, as well. Other than that, yet another instance of how God uses nonhuman animals to get His Point across. “Ask the animals, and they will teach you” (Job 12:7). I am most definitely not looking to rewrite that Bible Verse😉. i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and PEACE Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are about depending on me to live peaceably with all men. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] to live PEACEably with all men as much as depends on God this daily leavened bread.”)

As much as depends on God, you at peace

with all. Let not much depend on just you.

As much as depends on God, you release

them all. Let much depend on you push through.

As much as depends on God, me at peace

with all. Let not much depend on just me.

As much as depends on God, me decrease

for all. Let much depend on me set free.

“As much as depends on God, I AM PEACE,”

says Jesus. “Let not much depend on them.

Depend only on ME with them for lease.

For sale? Forever Home, Forever Him.”

The PEACE of the Shepherd, BOTH staff and rod.

Sheep for PEACE as much as depends on God.

SAME MIND, SAME LOVE

brown and white corgi wearing pink heart shaped hat
Father God, thank You that we Be of same mind, same love, one accord. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “Fulfill My joy by Being like-minded, having the same love, Being of one accord, of one mind” (Philippians 2:2). It is to Be our capture and our Godly (BOTH) that we Be of the same mind, same love, one accord, of Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ. Lead our mind and love toward the same mind and love of Your Son’s Stature and Body (BOTH). If we feel we are not of the same mind, same love, one accord, we are the shove, pushing each other away. If we feel we are of the same mind, same love, one accord, we are all agreeing. On a more personal note, same mind, same love, one accord, applies to BOTH humans and nonhuman animals. If BOTH of us feel we are not the same mind, same love, one accord, we are the shove, pushing each other away. If we feel we are BOTH of same mind, same love, one accord, we are all agreeing that God asks us to extend love, compassion and mercy to BOTH. This is covenant! “I will remember My covenant between Me and you and all living creatures of every kind” (Genesis 9:15). Always remember and never forget (BOTH) that God made a covenant with BOTH. And because God made this covenant, we were made to extend love, compassion and mercy to BOTH. No better covenant, in my humblest opinion, than God’s covenant to make us all VEGAN! So sweet to love that doggie in the picture as many of us do, but so sweeter (and God’s covenant) to love all nonhuman animals, including farm animals. Did i fail to mention make us all VEGAN? i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and One Accord Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are NOT of the same mind, same love, one accord. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] in same mind, same love, one accord [Jesus Christ] for BOTH humans and nonhuman animals [‘did i fail to mention make us all VEGAN?’] this daily leavened bread.”)

Let your mind have the same love , one accord.

Let like- and love-minded be your capture.

Let God lead your same mind and love toward

the same mind and love of the Son’s Stature.

Let my mind have the same love, one accord.

Let like- and love-minded be my Godly.

Let God lead my same mind and love toward

the same mind and love of the Son’s Body.

“Let joy be that they are of one accord,”

says Jesus. “That they have My same Being.

My same mind and love Be in them toward

the Father and the Son, all agreeing.”

Where we are not the same, we are the shove.

Where we of one accord, same mind, same love.

when burdened brothers BOTH

Father God, thank You than when burdened brothers BOTH, Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, FREES us BOTH. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him” (1 John 2:9-10.). Along the way of writing, this God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “Then the LORD said to Cain, ‘Where is your brother Abel?’ ‘I don’t know,’ he replied. ‘Am I my brother’s keeper?’” (Genesis 4:9). When a burdened brother, we are our brother’s keeper. The world will want us to be loath in this, but Jesus FREES us BOTH when we release our burdened brother to You, Father God, to carry and abide BOTH. When the light is dim and love is slim, Jesus FREES us from stumbling. Until now, it was darkness most at growth and hate taken in oath (BOTH). It was BOTH falling from grumbling. But, NOW, we are in His Light and He abides when burdened brothers BOTH. On a more personal note, another not-too-easy God Sonnet to write, as i have an estranged relationship with my biological brother. It is indeed a burden. But i can release him to God to carry and abide BOTH. As best i can tell, i have done my best to “clean my side of the street” with my biological brother. If not my best, i release to You, Father God, Your outcome when burdened biological brothers BOTH. i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and BOTH Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are BOTH my brother’s keeper loath. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] in Jesus FREES me when releasing to God burdened brothers BOTH this daily leavened bread.”)

When a burdened brother, you release him.

You release him to God to carry BOTH.

God carries you and him when light is dim.

Until now, it was darkness most at growth.

When a burdened brother, i release him.

i release him to God to abide BOTH.

God abides me and him when love is slim.

Until now, it was hate taken in oath.

“For BOTH, when burdened brothers, I AM FREE,”

says Jesus. “I FREE them BOTH from stumbling.

In My Light, I abide in BOTH with ME.

Until now, BOTH were falling from grumbling.”

the world will keep our brother’s keeper loath.

Jesus FREES us when burdened brothers BOTH.

HIS ESTEEM TEAM

closeup photo of short-fur tan and white cat standing beside gray concrete wall
Father God, thank You that we can join His Esteem Team with Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, Esteemed Best. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself” (Philippians 2:3). We esteem them better than our position and volition (BOTH). We esteem You, Father God, best than our need for elite and compete (BOTH). When we are lowliness of mind, we are “Highliness” of the Humbled Heart of Jesus. Where mankind is self-possessed, Jesus is Best. When the world tells us our ego is mainstream, it’s time for us to join His Esteem Team. On a more personal note, this Bible Verse and God Sonnet (BOTH) challenged me. The enemy was all over me with this one: “Timothy, you know you esteem yourself better than others, even yourself best than God!” I had to put the enemy in his place when I responded, “Get behind me, Satan! I am a nonhuman animal welfare advocate for God, and I esteem God’s nonhuman animals better than myself! In this, there is no selfish ambition or conceit on my part, only that i esteem God Best by being a nonhuman animal welfare advocate for Him!” And the picture informs me that i am on the right path, on His Esteem Team, because not my selfish ambition and conceit (BOTH), not my position or volition (BOTH), not my elite or compete (BOTH), only most willing to ditch all of these to rescue this “ditched” cat and “wipe every tear from his or her eyes” (Revelation 21:4). “Get behind me, Satan!” i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Esteem Team Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief esteem me better than them, even me best than God. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] to ditch ego mainstream and stay joined to His Esteem Team this daily leavened bread.”)

Nothing you do through selfish ambition.

Nothing you do where it be your conceit.

Esteem them better than your position.

Esteem God best than your need for elite.

Nothing i do through self ambition.

Nothing i do where it be my conceit.

Esteem them better than my volition.

Esteem God best than my need for compete.

“Join My Esteem Team with ME Esteemed Best,”

says Jesus. “the lowliness of their mind.

Esteem them better than each self-possessed.

Esteem God best than each need of mankind.”

the world would tell us our ego mainstream.

Jesus tells us to join His Esteem Team.
