contest entry and an observation
"A spiritual drought" by djeckert
Jesus said, "There is
NO greater love than for a man to lay down his life life for his Brother."

But, it often seems that many Christians won't even lay down, even five minutes of their precious TIME for their Brother.

How did we get there?

Where are we going?

Love Poem Poetry Contest contest entry

Author Notes
Ode to a Billion missing raindrops-

What if love in this world was water?
What if the force that kept our world full of this flowing "water",
was the loving hedge of protection that came from the FATHER?

What if this hedge came down with Roe v Wade?
When we passed off a law that God strictly forbade!

Would our land soon be parched?

What if the only new love
flowing into the land,
came through human tears,
and NOT by God's hand?

Tears of gratefullness and thanksgiving and
tears of great pain ,
Tears of mourning and sadness now, our only rain

Tears of love from above
Tears of sacrifice and joy
Tears because the new raindrop;
It's a girl!
It's a boy!

Would our land soon be parched?

Would the evaporating heat grow hotter and hotter?
With each and every non- loving and self serving slaughter?

Would our land soon be parched?

The puddles would disapear and creeks and streams would run dry,
as God's creatures continued to lose their ability to cry

Though there still would be rivers, and oceans and great lakes of love,
their levels would ever dissipate,
slowly but surely,
evaporating the love,
with every single donning of the cold killing blue glove

As the love grows dry,
then so would the tears,
and we'd find our land parched in a limited number of years.

Luckily for US though,
God's love, It ever abounds
If we turn to HIM and repent,
HIS rainstorm pours down!

I had to slightly rework this old write and retitle it (Based upon the number of abortions worldwide reaching 1 BILLION)

And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
Genesis 4:9-10 KJV
