“To Rally ‘Round – A Little Closer to Heaven”

“And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times.”   (Holy Bible, Psalm 12:6).

Anniversary 7 – Serving Heaven
By – Charles B. Mayes

IN 2008 SOME HARD CIRCUMSTANCES opened my eyes to my total dependence on God.  From this emerged my ministry of writing Christian poetry readings seriously and frequently.

“I do enjoy the poems and they do always point to Jesus.”  Anonymous

THROUGH THE YEARS as I’ve been on the website, I also distributed printed readings through churches and the LifeWay Christian Store community center.

“Love your poetry writing!  So complimentary in the common faith!”  Chanel B., DE.

I WANT TO THANK all my email and WordPress followers, LinkedIn readers, and visitors to my website for your continued support.

ALSO THANKS to my sisters, Nancy and Cherry, and Pastor P.T. Mammen for their encouragement from the beginning.  I appreciate the excellent editing of my wife, Dolores.  I thank my nephew, William, for helping greatly with the domain.

LORD WILLING,  I want to continue to minister through these poetry readings.

“You keep writing, I’ll keep reading!”  Steven C., San Jose, CA.

National Night Out

patriotic.usa.26 -

National Night Out

The first Tuesday of August
Again brings windy weather,
And also people to
National Night out, together.

Volunteers give time
To better their community.
What could be a
Better opportunity?

People surround that huge aerial photo
Which again on the easel sets,
Showing our area in the old days,
Seeing how change has been met.

Ice cream serving –
Bowl after bowl after bowl.
Some toppings “chocolate or caramel?”
Too much whipped cream – “let’s have some control!”

The Environmental Lady
Offering help for the home.
The Balloon Artist shapes
Animals, swords, and heart hats for the dome.

An obstacle course –
Olympic style.
The young ones having fun.
You can see their smiles.

The Cub Scout Pack,
Engaging the crowd,
With events galore,
Everyone laughs out loud.

Emergency Preparedness –
“If we can help just one.”
This our own *CERT*,
Demonstrating readiness when disaster comes.

Gifts for children –
Animal caps, airplanes, bubbles, and light sticks,
Drawing for adults –
Train rides, first aid kits, emergency pack – many picks.

Community Officers engage
Citizens to implement
A neighborhood watch
So they can be more vigilant.

But best of all
It’s a time to gather
Meeting friends – old and new,
Talking neighborhood things that matter.

The first Tuesday of August
On an evening of windy weather
By the Way, let’s meet again
For National Night Out, together.

The “By the Way” at the end of this poem has a triple meaning. The meanings are “incidentally”; the name of the location of our local event – which happens to be on the church grounds at “Nazarene Way”; and finally the “Nazarene’s Way”.
