“For he hears the lambs innocent call.
And he hears the ewes tender reply.
He is watchful while they are in peace.
For they know when their Shepherd is nigh.”
We are not at peace with others because we are not at peace with ourselves, and we are not at peace with ourselves because we are not at peace with God.
( a threesome of crows / Julie Cook / 2015)
Chasing dreams or chasing demons
In the darkened night of silence we slumber
Are we cautious sleeping with one eye open
Or do we rest free of worry and dread
Who is charged with the midnight watch
Who stands ready to sound the warning
Danger bays at the gate
While Trouble lurks in the shadows
Wickedness waits ready to strike
Will the Watchman see the signs
When fatigue deadens the senses
Precarious security wraps up the weary
As the winds rustle through the tress
The enemy circles the camp
Remember the Master stands ready to return
Will the enemy route his arrival
Be mindful you who slumber
Be cautious of demons masquerading as dreams
Where is thy peace
How may we rest
Listen all you who have ears to hear. . .
Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.
