So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Death Never A Fool

Death, you are elusive:
swift as a sharp blade slicing,
a slow dagger to the heart,
a blunt axe swung wildly;
a miser and a patron
but never a fool.
Death, you wait
on me as I wait on you, enticing,
teasing me by your nearness. Mildly
you brush against me in a crowd.
You are a lottery and a certainty.
You demand an audience.
The glamour of one absent, cool
Death, where are you?
Rapt, in sweet purgatory,
my soul nears her Lord.
