We Cannot Catch Love Like a Ball in a Glove...

 Time for our third Two for Tuesday of the month!
 Pick one prompt or use both…your choice!

  1. Write a catch poem.
  2. Write a release poem.

Two things we cannot catch or force; Love and Belief!

We cannot catch Love like a ball in glove
Or Belief, like a cold or a chill
The wraith we call faith has no tangible shape
Like a bubble we chase for the thrill

We cannot suppose while we wiggle our toes
In slippers or sand on a beach
That grace can be caught without intent or thought
If we never take Time to reach

…and if like a fool who plays hooky from school
We dodge Mercy’s uttermost Gift
We will not catch a break from our Greatest Mistake
While ageless eternities drift

Release from the debt that we owe
Through shed blood of His Son death’s curse was undone
Because One True God loves us so

 It is rare indeed for anyone to die for a righteous man, 
though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.
 Therefore, since we have now been justified by His blood,
 how much more shall we be saved from wrath through Him!…
Romans 5:7-9
