Pause for Poetry — A Gentle Reminder

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

A Gentle Reminder

by Frances Gregory Pasch

Too often, Lord,

instead of letting You navigate,

I rush around

trying to orchestrate everything myself.

How blessed I am

that you care enough

to point out my mistakes,

to discipline me, and

to direct my paths.

You gently remind me

that Your yoke is easy

and Your burden is light…

that I don’t have to prove myself,

nor compare myself

to others.

I only need

to please You.

My Prayer For You In 2018

by Frances Gregory Pasch

My prayer for you this new year

Is that God will pour on you

An anointing of His Spirit

Over all you say and do. 

May His love flow through your actions.

May His joy show on your face.

May others feel His presence…

It’s called Amazing Grace. 

May each new day be special

Filled with blessings from above.

May you feast upon His goodness…

Then with others share His love.

Pause for Poetry — Salvation Is In Christ Alone

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

Salvation Is In Christ Alone

by Frances Gregory Pasch

Don’t be shy about mentioning Jesus.

Don’t go along with the crowd.

When others say “Happy Holidays”

Say “Merry Christmas” out loud.

Don’t compromise the gospel

Tell them why Jesus came…

Salvation is in Him alone

Not any other name.

God’s Blessings

by Frances Gregory Pasch

As we gather round the table

We bow our heads in prayer

To thank You, Lord, for loving us

And for Your constant care.

We thank You for our houses,

Our friends and families.

We thank You for Your guidance

And for Your perfect peace.

Thanks for all Your blessings,

The big ones and the small,

Especially for Jesus

Who gave His life for all.

Pause for Poetry — My Best Friend

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch, My Best Friend.

My Best Friend

by Frances Gregory Pasch

Jesus is more than my Savior

He’s also my very best friend.

He’s here whenever I need Him.

On Him I can always depend.

He wakes me every morning

He’s with me all through the day.

And when I’m ready to go to bed

With me all night He will stay.

I have no other friend like Him.

He answers whenever I call.

He only wants what’s best for me.

He picks me up each time I fall.

He knows all of my weaknesses

And from His path I might stray.  

Yet I’m assured He’ll forgive me

If I turn to Him and pray.

And although He is my best friend

He can be your best friend, too.

For His love has no boundaries

He has lots left just for you.

So stop and take a minute;

Welcome Him into your heart.

You’ll sense a wonderful feeling

That only His peace can impart.

Pause for Poetry — Because He Lives

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

Because He Lives

O Dear Heavenly Father,

We come boldly to Your throne,

Through the blood of Jesus

By nothing of our own.

For Jesus opened heaven’s door

When He died on the cross,

And three days later rose again

So none need to be lost.

How blessed we are…He bridged the gap

Left open by man’s sin.

How blessed we are…because of Him

That we can enter in.
