This is the Largely Languid and Luxuriously Lovely beyond belief A-to-Z April 2015 Challenge!!!! And I am an A to Z Participant. And it is Day 12, Letter L!
this year I am writing a poem a day to celebrate National Poetry
Month. It's my FOURTH YEAR in a ROW of writing a poem a day for the A
to Z Challenge. My theme this year, is signs I've photographed and poems to go with them.
Evidently, there is redemption available through the Lord in this place. Though "Keep Out" seems a little intimidating, the Coke sign seems to be friendly enough. Redemption is free and available to all who seek it, but maybe someone peeks through the window to see if you are okay to be redeemed here. The "Keep Out" sign would seem to indicate that there is at least something you need to do before just entering in. I kind of pictured a redemption center as more of a church like place. But, fact of the matter is, the Lord truly is everywhere.
The Lord's Redemption Center
I thought that the Lord's redemption center
would look a bit more like a church,
But this sign says, you are at the right place;
you needn’t continue your search.
It's not as complicated as it seems
to get your ticket to glory:
Coca-Cola in hand, ignore 'Keep Out',
take heed of the old, old story.
Come as you are, you are welcome indeed,
repent of your poorly spent youth;
And when you’re redeemed with ticket in hand
you’ll be shown the glorious truth.
I thought that the Lord’s redemption center
would be a much fancier place
But the best place and time is here and now
to receive redemption through grace.
