Sled

Fresh snow on the trees- Purest of white- The little boy sees At dawn’s first light. With sparkling eyes, He springs from bed. And bellows the cry, “Hey, Dad! Let’s sled!” -Wills (2/20/18)

Floating

Floating gently through the sky, I watch the clouds pass me by. Floating gently through the sea, I watch the boats pass by me. -Wills Osborn (10/2/2017)

Thought Alive (Poem)

Once dead in sins: Though thought alive. Running errands for the prince of darkened skies. Our flesh compelled Us down that path. Till we beheld ourselves as children of wrath. Then mercy shone And love displayed: (In Christ alone) By grace through faith we’re…

Accused (Poem)

Questioned to great extent, Scribes and priests: vehement; by soldiers treated with contempt who won’t relent till Satan’s arrows: spent; the Man, silent, came and went. “And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused Him.” ‭‭ Luke‬ ‭23:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Pilate, The Coward

Pilate proved himself a coward, when he tried Emmanuel. The verdict: “guilty.” So absurd, his attempt the crowds to quell. Up to Herod, Christ he sent. (Jesus was from Galilee.) No decision. Back he went. Still, no fault could Pilate see. High Priests cry…
