God Found the One for Me. ( A Wedding Poem)

I don’t often write poetry, but the muse struck the other night while I was watching T.V. with my wife. The poem below is the end result of what the Lord gave me.  The inspiration I got was that people would somehow make it part of their wedding celebrations. If you find a way to make it part of yours, please email me at ra_crutchfield@yahoo.com and tell me about it. I look forward to hearing about how the Lord’s vision found  a place in your special day.

 

God Found the One for Me.

By Rev. Robert A. Crutchfield, FaithInspires.Org

 

I searched and Searched but did not find.

My days and nights were equally empty

My heart knew you, but we had not met.

God Found the One for Me.

 

People suggested others, but they were not you.

Faint copies were all around me.

None of them came close to being you.

God Found the One for Me.

 

I prayed over and over for my missing half.

I prayed for God to show me his choice for my mate.

I prayed for Him to bring us together at last.

God Found the One for Me.

 

Then finally the moment I prayed for came

From the first instant, it was if I always knew you.

My loneliness and emptiness, died the day we met.

God Found the One for Me.

Harvey and the King Who Died For Me

One of the bright sides of moving even when a hurricane forces the issue is finding things you thought were long lost. One of the “surprises” that survived both time and the storm was the newsletter from the 2006 investiture of the U.S. Grand Priory of the Most Honorable Order of the Christian Knights of the Rose. I hold the rank of Chaplain Knight Commander in that order.
On page page 7 is my little known poem, The King Who Died for Me. I repost it here in the hopes that it will help renew and strengthen the faith of someone out there.

The King Who Died for Me.
By Rev. Chev. Robert A. Crutchfield ChKCR, DSR, ChCStI
The prophets foretold your coming;A sinful world awaited you; You came to save each of us.
The King who died for me !
You were always God; You chose to be born a man; I was never more than a man.
The King who died for me !
There came a day on Calvary; The sinless King hang on a tree; Your death paid for my sins.
The King who died for me !
Three days later you rose; Sin you defeated for me; Death you defeated for me.
The King who died for me !
You lived a sinless life; You died for my sins; A sacrifice I will never deserve.
The King who died for me !

Love Is: A Poem

I know its different from what I usually do, but I thought those here might enjoy one of my first published works. It is a poem called Love Is. It was originally published in Hearts on Fire: A Treasury of Poems on Love, by The American Poetry Society. I forget the exact year, I believe it was 1983.

LOVE IS
By Robert A. Crutchfield

A man for his chosen woman.
A woman for her chosen man.
A child for its loving parent.
Love is a most unpredictable thing.

Sharing is a large part of it
Caring is a large part of it.
Being together is a large part of it.
Love is a most unpredictable thing.

It comes in lots of shapes and sizes.
The bounds of logic it does not heed.
Love’s bond cannot easily be broken.
Love is a most unpredictable thing.

People may study its various episodes.
They can try to interpret its signs.
History’s greatest minds have tries this and failed.
Love is a most unpredictable thing.
