"Show me Your strong love in wonderful ways, O Savior of all those seeking Your help against their foes. Protect me as You would the pupil of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings as You hover over me." Psalm 17:7-8

Sarah's Holy Place

Preface:  This was written the morning after Al Joslin proposed to Sarah Eyth.  To those who know them, their love story speaks volumes regarding the goodness and faithfulness of God.  Sarah has deeply impacted my life with her young (yet old soul) love for Jesus!!  She is a mighty worshiper of the King.  Al, you’ve a fiery woman of God to love all your days.  Be blessed in her love, and moreover may both of you be blessed beyond telling by Jesus as you unite your hearts and lives for His glory and pleasure (and thus your own)!!  Looking forward, along with you, to October 1, 2011.

 Sarah's Holy Place

A tattered banner waves from tree o’erhead
inviting me to revisit this holy place.
Here Sarah oft came dying,
dying to believe she was truly loved.
Here she met Father and wept in His arms.
Here she poured perfume on Savior feet.
Here ‘neath this tree she tabernacled,
and learned who she was: God’s dove,
one made worthy, one made to be loved.
Here she worshiped.  Here she prayed. 
Here she pined, faith undaunted,
for her Lord had promised.

Still, in her want, she died a thousand deaths,
becoming more and more alive,
set apart, irresistible!!
Here victory was won,
death of a marital dream undone.
Here, Jesus cried, “It is finished.  It is done.”
Here, the bride’s price was paid, and pledge made.
Like dazzling lake in afternoon sun
a covenant ring now sparkles.
Two shall become one.

Under this tree a tent open to God was raised.
Curtains hung sunset drenched,
candles flamed passionate,
bracelets on ribbons sang in Spirit wind.
Here Al proposed to Sarah,
proclaimed undying love on bended knee
Everything about it pointed back to A Blood-Stained Tree.
Tree on which Savior hung, bended knee, nailed feet,
pledging love undying, rising to claim His Bride.
As the veil was rent so many years ago,
so this tabernacle on Calvary beach
opened to admit and emit heaven’s glow.

Al surprised Sarah in every way
as will The Groom His Bride someday,
when clouds shall part and The Lord descend
sweeping her up to be forever with Him.

Beautiful Bride In Waiting!!  Congratulations!!!!!!!!


Rejoicing In His Shadow With Them,
