Whole Lotta Shakin'

As always my friend Greg Asimakoupoulos has penned a timely poem about the troublesome times in which we're living. Enjoy it but be reminded of the One on whose everlasting arms we are leaning. - David

There's a Whole Lot of Shaking Going On...Faith lessons in the face of impending natural disasters.
by Greg Asimakoupoulos - July 15, 2005

Greg A-----------------
How do you pronounce that, Greg?

The conflict over in Iraq
is not the only war.
The frontlines on the weather map
show skirmishes galore.

The right coast reels from hurricanes.
The left coast burns and quakes.
The Midwest is Tornado-ville
and in the South it bakes.

We're all on edge this time of year.
And though we think we're strong,
it only takes the things we fear
to prove to us we're wrong.

We like to think we're in control
and do the things we please.
But it's a wake up call of sorts
to hear Mom Nature sneeze.

From coast to coast we run the risk
of suffering real harm.
So why not learn to walk by faith
while leaning on God's arm?
