The Grove!


There is a grove,

standing tall,

standing firm,

not yet in any stove.

The birds build nest,

raise their young,

and in the grove,

the deer walk through;

they feed on the way,

lie down in the shade,

on hot summer days,

so glade this grove,

is here,

not in a stove.

We Christians,

have a refuge,

from Satan’s temptations,

temping us to sin;

We have the Holy Spirit,

living within;

Jesus is our refuge,

Jesus is our grove,

Jesus is our keeper,

keeping us safe,

from Hell’s flaming stove.

I am married, have four lovely children and five grandchildren. I love gospel music and to write poetry as a hobby. I love animals such as dogs, and white tailed deer. I love good clean humor.
