An Expression of Who I am in Him!

My Daughter

I wasn’t there to hold you tight, when dangerous things went bump in the night

I wasn’t there to give you kisses, to hear your heart, to learn your wishes

I wasn’t there to protect you from harm, I was too busy with a man on my arm

And now as I grow, I still watch you suffer…from having a mom who used to be another.

I’m sorry for being so awkward and weird, for not SEEING you , even when you are near

I’m sorry for my past and my present too, for Facebook and Phones and my twisted rear view.

I AM SO proud of the woman you are, my sweet daughter, you’ve come so far!

Thank you for being patient, and true,for brightness and laughter and just being you!

Thank you for sadness and feeling pain..as your growing mother walks through the rain.

I know that I fail, where you are concerned, and I’m sorry for all the times you had to get burned.

Please, sweet daughter, know my heart.. you were precious to me from the very start! All I pray for you, my love…is that you know fullness from God up above.

The things that I do are always in love…I only want to help you fly like a dove.

I’m so sorry for wounding you and not being enough. I’m sorry I’m awkward and many times rough.

I AM PROUD, off all that you are, I will ALWAYS be here, like a shining star!

I know I’m not perfect but love you I do, and I hope to always see you through.

Thank you for grace and love and stuff…

Signed,

A Mother , whose awkward and rough.

Teacher Teacher (for Mr.Brown)

Teacher this and teacher that..
It’s really quite a circus!
To come to work in a Saab thats scabby
Just so kids can shirk us!

No, no, no
this won’t do
That poem’s not quite right!
I grade and read and study LOTS
to help every child in sight!

I love, YES LOVE , just what I do
It truly makes me gasp
To see the hearts of little seeds
Flourish, at things they grasp!

Now in life, it seems that I, a teacher am no more
My body seems to shun the lessons it used to keep in store!
But something is amiss in that, This poem does not concur…
Because as I’m told on this here page, my teaching does endure!

As I praise my Savior, amidst the pain and strife
As I show the love I have to my children and my wife
I pass along a message, no classroom can instill
The message is that CHRIST IS KING!
And no illness, this can kill

The Teacher

The mass of loneliness, filled her heart
The lack of love, the rocky start

Maybe with friends, I’ll fill this lack
But all she received , was another attack

Will anyone love me? Do they even care?
Walking through those doors!
BEWARE, BEWARE!

The snickers, the laughs,The rough grubby hands.
The friends who hurt you, Just because they can.

Learning and fun and growing you say?
How about hurt and fear and running away!

I hit the 6th grade, a sanctuary I found!!
Where laughs and love and fun DO abound!

Advice and care from a heart that’s pure..
One who loves Jesus…that much is for sure!

A place I can hide, from the chaos without…
A place where the planting of a seed comes about.

Then one day, this girl left her “home”
Only to find a world, where she’d be all alone.
Men and needles and babies ! Oh dear!
Where’s my next bottle…hand me that beer!

But a powerful seed, was already inside
A seed of the Word, did dormant lie.

Planted in her childhood, then again in her youth
By a few faithful farmers, of which, one was you..

Ethan Henry Brown such a simple plain name..
But what lies inside is proof that HE came!

That seed did grow, many years in the making
But I sit here today, grateful and shaking..

My heart FILLED with Love, Joy and Light!
I now GIVE Life, to all those in sight!

I want to say…THANK YOU! From the DEPTHS of my heart,
For helping this girl, overcome her bad start!

Jenea

Oh sweet Jenea!
I tried to find the words today, to express what’s in my heart
But elude me fast , the right words did, but I guess this is a start.
You shine and glow and gush for Christ, You truly are a sign
And written over every action, are the words of God “She’s mine”
I’m overwhelmed with love for you, and delight & awe & mirth!
If I tried to compare you to a thing, I suppose you’d be a hearth!
A place where sparks are placed, til burning embers glow
Where Oxygen and warmth and light, from thee can freely flow!
Where plain dead wood can come to life, where life before did flee
But now ablaze with God’s great Fire, Emits eter-nity!
In the home, within my heart, you do adoringly lie…
You shine with so much WONDROUS love, you nearly blind my eye!
Of course, of course, you know I jest, but truth is present still
That Love, and Light and merriment, within you is inbuilt!!!

The Bride

I found something out today…

After 6 years in Christ, I’m finally saved!

What?

I thought that happened at Re-Birth

Well, it does and it doesn’t if you continue to WORK

 

See, all the while Christ died to set me free

He died to save you from you and me from me..

 

The dirty,filthy as rags ,inherited SIN we have inside

The things we all wanted to do, hide or NOT hide

When you accept Christ..that’s it..SIN DIED!

So if God is so Awesome, and Christ is our Groom

Why do we continue to work to be good?

We sweep up our mess ourselves…with a broken BROOM

 

Wandering along , asking..WHAT SHOULD I DO??!!

Leave it alone…He died for YOU

Yeah yeah, but what’s my TASK?

To let God love you, and DROP the mask!!

Ok , Ok, but whats my part??

Just receive your forgiveness and pass on the cart..(to another)

For now, My God  is my brother…

I am no longer an orphan, no longer a whore

I am in GOD’S FAMILY, a VIRGIN BRIDE..FOREVER more

 

So quit striving and huffin’ and puffin’ to be good

Enjoy the Honeymoon…as any Bride should:)

How to Walk After the Flesh in 20 Easy Lessons

Wow…This is where I am…
Here’s my struggle….
BAM!!!
Lord help me walk in the spirit..not the Flesh

Escape to Reality

elephantIf you’ve ever taken young children to the zoo, you will know that the big animals are initially more popular than the small ones. Elephants, rhinos, and tigers get more attention than otters, turtles, and geckos. And so it is with works of the flesh.

Ask any Christian to list the works of the flesh and they will likely respond with the list found in Galatians 5:19-21: adultery, hatred, idolatry, murder, etc. Paul calls these the “manifest” or “obvious” works of the flesh. They are the biggies, the elephantine examples of what it means to live apart from God. But the Bible also provides dozens of lesser examples of fleshly living that you may not be so familiar with. I’ve listed some of these lesser works of the flesh below.

Walking after the flesh is when you attempt to get your needs met independently of God. It’s trusting in yourself…

God, my God

God , my God
I feel you in the depths of my soul
I know You have me and
You’ll NEVER let go!

God, my God
When you hold me near and I consider your ways…
My spirit sours like an eagle..
Even on the rainiest of days

God, my God
my Father…
my Friend…
That sweet sweet Holy Spirit consuming me like a fire from within!

God , my God
It’s You I cannot live without
I need you my Lord to extinguish all doubt!

God , my God
My thirsty soul awaits..
For Your Presence to fill and FLOOD my gates!

You are my God
my Life and my Love
Thank you my God
For Your blessing from above!

Facilitated Faucet

OK..

 

Faucet

 

So After my quiet time

in the morning

with the Lord

 

 

I was praying for girly friends

 

Who would help THIS  key

become a Chord!

 

Then all a’sudden

 

What pop’s in my head?

“Give Gayla THAT book”

The one you never read! ”

 

So I call up this lady

Who saw that Jesus was my Light…

 

And she says to me

“Lynn, Bible  Study , Next Tuesday night!”

 

So I’m all gushy inside

An a Lil nervous , it’s true

 

But when  I got there

I saw a GHOST

A Holy One too!

 

Then I met some ladies

Ones to swell my heart

 

The ones who never say

A bad word, (Such as Fart)

 

I want to encourage,

the reader at this point

God Answers prayer!

After obedience comes anoint!

 

Listen to the Lord, and wait for His timing

One day you could return a book

 

And have YOU a reason for Rhyming 🙂

Even on your cloudiest days… When night draws near… God will find ways… To show you He is near..Look for the Light!

Grace

 As I watch the leaves, dancing on the limbs…

I’m reminded of , Your Face
The Life You gave
& day to day
revealing Your Amazing Grace †

By Lynn Rountree

Hmmmm

Hmmmm, Haven’t written in awhile

That’s prolly good

Cause I usually write about the vile…

*shrugs*

 

Lord Inspire me

to write about what YOU see:)

Mommy, don’t kill me!

Image

Mommy, This is me…

I’m only 12 weeks old

I have a beating heart

I AM a living soul!

I know you think you have no choice

And getting rid of me is fine

But you are the one who slept with him

So why then must “I” die?

You mean it wasn’t your choice to have me?

Because this man  raped you?

Well let me ask you..who is God?

If I live…won’t He  pull you through?!

I know they say I’m just a bunch,

Of cells, that live in your womb

But look at me now mommy

I have a face, a heart and am full of LOVE

I just wanna live,just like you!

They say in our country, that killing me is fine!

But the Word of God says I am ALIVE, Just read Psalm 139!

I know your life ain’t easy, No ones really is

But if you cannot keep me

Then why oh why not GIVE!

Give me to some couple, So full of love and pain

Because they want a baby, but their bodies won’t obey.

What? You mean the pregnancy, will make you look all fat?

Or is it that you don’t have time, to quit your parties, and all that!

Maybe you feel helpless, All alone and no way out!

HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST!

For you, HE Bled out!

So since He died for you AND ME….

So that we could ALL have life…

My dearest sweetest mommy….

Tell him to drop the knife!

If you need help, and hope. Contact me anytime! God loves you! And so do I!!!

If you have ever had an abortion, and are now repentant, Please know He forgives freely!

Jesus loves you sooooo much! Find comfort in the fact that He died for ALL your sins!

Seriously Shallow!

As I was sitting here thinking about “things”

Like, phone Excess-or-ries! :/   and earrings…

Like, new clothes and things that make “ME” shine

I was thinking “WOW Lynn, Way to be all about MINE MINE MINE!!!”

.

The things that I ponder in a day..

Are not  AT ALL like I should in “The Way”

.

I read “Justathought” this morning, on my screen

I get the e-mail, for that sort of thing….

.

And it got me thinking, do I love Comfort, Convenience & Complacency?

More than I love the Spirit-&-what-His-eyes-see?

.

My friend, the answer is YES!!

I’d rather be running in place than at His feet at rest!

.

Even this blog that I’m writing to you now..

Is just an attempt at acceptance somehow!

.

Oh MY LORD!! What a wretched human am I

The things that I do, are making me DIE!

.

My back is aching, my spirit is dry

I whine and complain, daily about “my, My, MY!”

.

I spin my wheels about all I DON’T do

Self condemnation, and grIping about you! (no not Him, YOU!! )

How shallow , how shallow

Can I be???

LORD rescue, RESCUE… ME from ME!!!

I praise You my Lord, that even this mess…

Somehow You will work it all out, for my Best!

I know You will win, in all my hokus pokus

Lord Help Me Renew!

cross in  the eeye

Renew my Focus!

It’s not about me and all that I crave!

It’s ALL about You, And WHO You gave!

Jesus heart

Just Wanna Praise You!

                                                                                         Puppy Baby

So many times, The poems I pen

Are to talk of the times, I felt sorry for Lynn

So many times, when I pray in Your Name

It’s so I can ask , for personal fame!

Well , this time my Lord, To You as I write…

I just want to PRAISE YOU with all of my might!

Thank You,  Dear Creator

For the things that I see..

Like puppies and babies, and the  busy bumbling bee!

For mountains, for meadows, for the salty Ocean Sea!

For the tickling in my nose , just before  a SNEEZE!

Thank you for the smells

of…

  Fresh cut grass…. leather …..(thinking)….&  fresh cut wood!

Fresh hay,  Fresh Berries,  Even the skunk , if I could ….

Lord, thank so much,

For Tree’s so BIG AND TALL!!

Thank you for Plants, Lord, I love them ALL!

Especially, the succulents, I like to feel and touch

I love your creation, I love it so much!

But more than these things,

I PRAISE You for One..

Who was here , even before, time had begun

You know Him quite well,

He is my Husband, and Brother

He is THE One,  for me , there is no other!

He is Your Son

Jesus Christ is His Name!

Let HIS NAME BE PRAISE!

ALL GLORY AND FAME!

For once, I was stricken down in my sin..

All alone in this world, All dead within!

But now as I walk in the Light of the Word

I am never forsaken, I am forever heard!

Child Praise

Butterfly Kisses

(I wrote this poem when I was 17 years old.

I lived an  unpeacful life…this was my dream)

Image

 

 

Butterfly kisses, Through a Fairy’s Breeze

The Air Sprites love, Through the the tops of the tree’s

FireFlies GLARE through Queen Winter’s stare..

OH how I wish, I could only be there!

The grouchy gnome, throws a smile to his wife

As the little elves play, with ALL their might

This is a dream..

A dream I once had…

Where no man is Angry…

And no man is Sad…

Where the world is FILLED with hopes of Peace

And all mankind, awakes while he sleeps!

The Desert…

Walking Through the desert

Trudging day by day

Water All around me

Sometimes in my way

.

I try …and I  Try… and I  TRY  to drink

But the Hole in my brain continues to

leak , Leak, LEAK!

.

God, MY GOD!!

I KNOW You are near!

But God , MY GOD!!!

WHY WON’T YOU APPEAR???

.

For 1 year, 4 months and 21 days

I have tried and tried to change my ways

.

I keep trying my Lord,

To drink from Your Fountain..

.

But You keep tel-ling me, Lord

NO Lynn..

keep climbing  that  mountain!

.

In this present walk… I am Much-Afraid

“Hinds Feet on High Places”, are  being fashioned and made

I know, that I know, That I know…

That YOU are in control!

I know that You Love Me

And You are Making me to grow!

.

As I whine and Complain…

I am Thanking You too…

Cause the BEST Love of all

Is the One who PUSHES you through!

.

I Love You My Lord…:)

Matthew 5:4

(P.S When We mourn because we WANT to be like God, but aren’t …It’s better than a Hallelujah! )

Meth Addict No More!!

Old Me

This is a picture of Lynn

In Two-Thousand and Seven

Not Two Thousand and Ten

When you look at this picture…..

What do YOU see?

I bet you see her…You don’t see me!

Skinny lil girl, with meth on her mind?

I see Pain, I see Lies, I see the corrosion of time!

I see “You’re not good enough to be your kids mother”

I see “Shut up Lynn, why can’t you be like your  brother?”

I see ” Why don’t you love me, man number 50″!

I see ” FIX ME FIX ME man number 60!”

I see a lil girl, looking for her Messiah!

LOVE  ME LOVE ME or I’m Gonna DIE-AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

I started out, so loving and sweet,

Lack of true love, kicked me off of my feet

Needles and Needles, and Men

OH MY

Satan looks tasty when your ready to die!

I did die, that day and every other

Til one day, My daughter was my mother!

Mommy mommy, To church let us go!

Guilty, guilty…so I’ll go with the flow

My dear sweet Savior, I found that Day

He GRABBED ME!!

HE HELD ME!!

He took the pain AWAY!!

Now Here I am, Weighing a Hundred pounds GALORE

I’m a NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST!!

METH ADDICT NO MORE!!!!

Soaking up The Fathers LOVE

Image

Soaking up the Fathers Love…

Trying to grow all I can 

Looking to Things, not below but above

Getting my head out – the -sand

 

As the Days linger on, into the pit I fall

Computers, tablets and phones

I forget who I am , Think I’m having a ball

But really I’m drying my bones!

 

Ahhh, To get in the Word, decipher! Decode..!

My spirit , to water and thrive!

I thirst for the Lord, in my humble abode

But I digress, wretched wretch such as I! 

 

What do I do?? I need you Lord

I’m a high tech glutton at best

“Fast and fast and fast your gourd”

“And let Me take care of the rest”

 

My sweet Jesus, I believe You are right

To fast Facebook and food…

But Lord, I lack Power and Might

My efforts alone are lewd!

 

Please Dear Lord, I love You so!

Help me to shed all the grotesque idols

I want so much to grow and grow

My tongue and my hands need bridles!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Tween

This Is My Tween

 

She is Quite Green

º¿º

This is My Daughter

At Times..We want to slaughter! (eachother)

But then there are times like this

When Everything, seems like bliss!

 

 

My daughter is sweet, cool and funny

My daughter is like a cute fluffy bunny!

Except when she kicks , as we lay in the bed

 

 

And then I scoot over , after I hit her in the head!

 

I love you beca boo!

Why Do I??

You can Run....but wherever you go...There I AM

Can someone tell me?

TELL ME QUICK!

Why do I run?..It makes me SICK!

I run to the computer, I run to my phone

I run from My God, when I’m home alone!

 I know that I need You. I know that I do!

I crave your existence, Your Love to renew!

 I do spend time… with you in the evening

I do  spend it …with you in the morn….

 But sometimes all I can think of..

Is

“Will this meatloaf go with this corn?”

 I spent so much time, in my life, feeling blue

Now I am not!

Now I have You.

 But the problem still exists, from my desire to please…

I condemn myself, for the slightest SNEEZE!!!

I spent so much time, sleeping and stuff

Now ..when I nap, I feel lazy…not buff!

Then from condemnation, from Satan, and me

I run from You……chained, not free!

I’m sorry My Lord! For fleeing Your face

I want to complete, the ultimate race!

I long for Your voice…

To to say in the End

Lynn, I caught you for good…

I WIN ! I WIN!

My Birthday Rhyme

I’m Rowin, and I’m flowin

As the time flies by… another year I am   growin’

Another year older, as I spout out this rhyme

I got my ins-pir-ation, from Jesus this time

The way that I rap, may be fu-nny to some

But I’m spillin out my heart, to the beat of Christs drum

Now here I am, at the age of 32…

Eatin on His word, and I chew chew chew!

As His words flow in me, and I  grow like a tree

My leaves begin to flourish with this Life inside of me!

Today is my birthday, Anniversary, if you will

Cause  my True Lifes Birth, Was on Cal-Va-ry’s Hill!

Just sittin here…

Just sittin here, Jesus dear, letting my brain run again

I search the page, fuming with rage at what I see within

I get so mad @ the world we live, as each day, more and more I give

I turn on the tele, cursing and sex

I get on the web, man what a hex

I can’t even rhyme in the way that I should….My head is rpm’ing beneath my hood!

I guess I’m not really all that upset, I used to contribute to the rat roulette!

I praise God for the life you’ve given, the life you gave to get me to Heaven!

I KNOW you are coming, to Earth REAL quick….for a healthy church, not one who is sick!

Lord please hurry!! Come Right now!…NO WAIT…My loves aren’t ready! Save them somehow!

Lord I’m torn, between this world and Yours….Not cause I wanna be where they are

Because  they are so close….SO CLOSE yet so far!

I know you have this under control, please forgive me as I rant and I roll!

You are sovereign, for this is true….One day I’ll be praising…Hope they are too!

Poem For a Widowed Brother

Couple Weeks Back, a VERY good friend and sister, passed away! She is hoopin and hollering with our Lord, but she left a dear one behind. I’m not very good with the spoken word, so I use poetry…Holy Spirit HELPS  a lot!

Her Name IS Sue

Her name IS Sue Patterson..Now she is with Christ

She’s leaping and jumping for joy, And Praising with all her might

While we are very happy, That she is finally home

There is a man on earth, That feels left and alone

I can hardly imagine, What it’s like to lose your human Love

For the one you call your better half, to be taken up above

All I know is that the LORD knows how you feel,

He once  Lost His Love on Cal-Va-Ry’s Hill

He will never leave you,nor forsake you,  He is ever at your Side

Filling that Hollow void, you now feel inside

Time does not heal all wounds, For that is a lie

But there will come a TIME when again your by her side!

I hope these word help comfort, The pain you feel inside

I’ll pray, I’ll stay and be by your side

Dear friend I dearly love you, you truly are my kin

But the one who loves you most….Is right there…within!

I love you brother!

Poem For My Pastor

This is a Poem I wrote for my Pastor and his wifes 50th Wedding anniversary. They call me their granddaughter:)

50th Time’s a Blessing

By: Lynn “granddaughter” Rountree

October 21st 2011

I’ll start out, tellin’ this here journey

Bout bustin ma’ gut and needin a gurney!

For when Gene said “Well, will ya?”

Connie’s answer? Hehehe It’ll kill ya!!

She said “I guess so”

Then he said

Just so ya know, I been called ter preach, But T’ain’t ready ter go!”

She rightly agreed to the man she loved

This here union was a gift from above

And… fer some years she was quiet as a mouse

Til’ one fine day…

She done left the house!!

She WAS GONE!! Kids N all!

The Pastor was scared!! Bout’ ready ta Bawl!!

Done thought it was the rapture…He’d been left behind!

He then said “God NOW I’m ready!”

God said “Good! By the way Gene, They’re fine!” *Grin*

Well, years go by & children are had

Churches get built, debt free, no guilt!

Through troubles and trials and all sorts of stuff

They clung to each other, even though it was tough

They give up THEIR “dreams”

To run toward the “prize”

With Faith in their hearts and

Love in their eyes!

Now the Lord has blessed US with these!

Two FINE people to roll up their sleeves

The love they have, for us, and one another

Reminds me of the One, who sticks closer than a brother!!
