An Interlude

It was one particular Christmas season when the Lord made a beautiful interlude in my life. Today after 21 years, the memories of that christmas season are still very much alive in my heart. It was indeed my most beauitiful experience in life. This year I once again reminiscence its beautiful memories through this poem.


An Interlude


I am busy building castles in the sand

Reaching out for my fancy dreams

I have big dreams for myself

To be a great somebody someday

To earn big bucks of money

To pamper myself with nice, fancy things


I am on my way for reaching that star

When You made an interlude into my life

Your Word indeed pierced the darkness of my heart

Crushed that great pride inside of me

You made me realized how proud I had been

To seek the best for me and leave You behind


Such Interlude I will always be thankful for

For it made me truly realized

The depth of my carnality and depravity

The height of my vanity and folly

The great distance I have wandered away

From your ways and righteousness


Such Interlude I will always grateful for

For it led me to your eternal Kingdom

Made me feel that I am really special

Made me truly blessed and happy

Made me truly content and peaceful

Filled my life with joy and glory.


May your Christmas this year be filled with joy and glory.

Good morning Cristina.

This is a beautiful poem and so wonderfully stated.

I am glad you were brought into our family just as I am grateful I was brought in.

May your best Christmas present be a special day with Him who is the reason for the season.

HI teacherjoe52 I am glad to hear from you again. Thank you for taking time to visit my hub once again. Christmas to me is special only because of what the Lord has done to my life. It became meaningful only since the time I have known the Lord. Without the Lord's presence on Christmas it is a folly. I am wishing you a great day today. May God richly bless you always. Best regards.

God is truly a GOOD GOD! & The ULTIMATE FATHER that knows what is best for each of us! Thank you for reminding us how very important it is to always SEEK HIS WILL & WAY for us above all else.

Thank you for being YOU! So thankful that our Heavenly has allowed our paths to cross. Till next time; In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! May HIS Blessings be upon You in JESUS NAME!
