God Keeps His Promises

My Take

DiVoran Lites

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today was our first day at school for Good News Club.

We had eighteen children.

The smallest one was a little boy about three feet tall

With big brown eyes.

Another was as tall as me and

Quite the knowledgeable gentleman.

He and a girl at his table already knew

Good things about Jesus.

I felt like a child myself listening to

The stories and games.

Today we had a large screen with

Bright and beautiful pictures

Of the story of the birth of Jesus.

I caught my breath when I saw

Gabriele and the

Startled look on Mary’s face

Such a shock that she, a virgin

Would bear God’s child.

I felt Josef’s brief sadness that

The baby would not be his,

But God persuaded him to accept

The Son and look after Him.

The children sat immersed in the

Story-teller’s words and expressions.

The Messiah had been promised.

Thousands of years passed.

The Messiah came.

The promised Savior to

Save us from our sins.

God always keeps his promises.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We sang and danced to sign-language gestures.

Meanwhile,someone worked in the background

Making sure the children who were supposed to be there were there.

The room was full…looks like we might need a bigger one.

God always keeps his promises.

 

 

 

Author, Poet and Artist

DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”
