STOLEN (STEALING) PARADISE
(21 May 2008 by Carl A. Patton)
My beloved Brethren, Peace be unto you. There are many times when the truly righteous bowing to the flesh feel that the Paradise inherent in the Saints is far-fetched and elusive. However as he relished in solitude the sojourner also at times stole Paradise. As a thief of good-will the Hell-bent often believed that they could tamper with the Creation and what God has willed to those who follow Him. Paradise thus as is Peace a free gift. Therefore there is a blessing for those that last in this wicked race as the well will run dry for the swift and the Indian spring will flow for those that rest at the end.
I stood looking in the world as
they thought that the power brokers
had all things good which they
thought was Paradise.
Meanwhile I knew from the sacred
text that Paradise was not earned
are gained by the slothful in Truth.
This was a blessing and I thanked
God for this revelation.
Therefore I saw/see man and his
friends. I love people that God
created as this is commanded
by God. However the sins of me
and the world I rejected.
Thus I selected the times to
interact with the lost. There was
a shade tree. The water at the river
never stood still. Nor did it back bite.
I slipped into silence at the night
in the moon. There I found peace
among the still of the day and
night. This was Paradise.
I looked as a thief in the night.
As man looked on the outskirts
making false claims to Peace
Could I steal Paradise? Can you
steal Peace? Was our hearts stolen
by a lost world? I sat quietly
among the elements I felt Peace
and Paradise would come.
