  We are not
    defined by those
    that may love
      or hate us,
  But only
    by the One
     that loved,
      fashioned, and
       made us.
  Please  read  Psalm
  8:1-9   which   says
  in part, "When I con-
  sider  Thy  heavens,
  the work of Thy fing-
  ers,  the  moon  and
  the stars which Thou
  hast  ordained; what
  is  man,  that  Thou
  art mindful of him?"

  Father and Savior:
  By Your Holy Spirit
    I strive to be
     like Thee;
  Not to give up
   on anyone,
    but to let anyone
     give up on me.
 It is written in Isaiah
 53:3, "... we hid as
 it  were  our  faces
 from Him ... and we
 esteemed Him not."
 It  came to pass  as
 later written in John
 19:15,   "But   they
 cried out, '... crucify
 Him.' "

  It is according
    to one's desire
    that determines
      each one's case;
We're either in Satan's
  line of fire
  or in the scope
    of our Lord's grace.
It is written: In Proverbs,
"For as  he thinketh in
his  heart, so is he ..."
In Joshua, "... choose
you this day whom ye
will  serve ..."  And  in
1  Peter  5:8,  "...  the
devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh  about,  seek-
ing   whom   he   may

       RFH's first "country-western" poem:
          by RFH
Well, howdy!
  How do you do?
  Don't mind me,
    I'm just passin' thru.
A long way t'go
  but a short time to;
  Don't mind me,
    I'm just passin' thru.
Whether you help me
  or I help you,
  it don't matter none --
    I'm just passin' thru.
Listen, if you will,
  to my Savior's Song;
  After I'm finished
    I'll just move along.
A long way t'go
  but a short time to;
  Don't mind me,
    I'm just passin' thru.
(My Savior's Song would
also  be  known  as  The
Traveler's Psalm  --  or A
Song Of Degrees -- found
in   the   eight   verses  of
Psalm 121.  Also, please
read  The  Strangers And
Pilgrims verse from Heb-
rews 11:13, and end with
John 14:3.)

By thought, word,
  or deed
  we've broken down
    the Ten Barriers
    and let
      the enemy in;
O Lord, we pray,
  search our
  hearts today;
    disperse the enemy
    and purge us
      from such sin;
So that we shall be
  perfectly free
  and so much more;
    more like Thee.
[In  Prophets and Kings
(Page 212), EGW wrote
in part: "Those who give
themselves  up  to   ...
Satan may boast of great
benefit received; but does
this prove their course to
be wise or safe?  What if
life should be  prolonged
[or]   temporal   gain   be
secured? ... All such gain
will   prove   at   last   an
irrecoverable   loss.   We
cannot with impunity break
down a single barrier which
God has erected  to guard
His  people  from   Satan's

 Where, O Lord,
   just where
    are my loved ones now?
     Life is getting tough;
  Someday we may all
    be together;
     it can't be
      soon enough.
 1 Thessalonians  4:16-18
  says in part, "For the Lord
  Himself  shall  descend ...
  and  the  dead  in  Christ
  shall  rise  first:  Then  we 
  which are alive and remain
  shall  be  caught  up  with
  them ... to  meet  the Lord
  in the air: And so shall we
  ever  be  with  the Lord ...
  comfort one another  with
  these words."

  Those wise little eyes
    could peer in
    to see so much
      of this world of sin;
  But let them instead
    in innocence grow;
    There's ample time
      for them to know
  About the dark side
    of life (which
    the godly despise);
  So do all you can
    to help guide
    those wise little eyes.
  Proverbs 22:6  tells us:
   "Train up a child in the
   way he should go: and
   when  he is old  he will
   not depart from it."

   Tho' we live
     far apart,
     going thru
      some stuff;
   In matters
     of the heart,
     we're still
      close enough.
 Colossians 3:13
  says: "Forbear-
  ing one another,
  if [anyone has]
  a quarrel against
  any:  even  as
  Christ forgave
  you, so also do
