MY HERO:
My dad, The Rev. David R. Ketchen, who drove almost a thousand miles to help me make it through my last week of classes during an academically dismal semester in college. Read more about Dad in my http://bit.ly/DadChronicles collection of blog posts. More importantly and specifically read my http://bit.ly/eulogy-for-dad.

Dad was a Presbyterian pastor all over the U.S. and our native Canada. Over the years, during Monarch Butterfly season, Dad often did a children's story that spanned over a few weeks in Sunday morning services. The kids (and adults) got to see the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly over that period. This is a photo I took of one of the butterflies in my parents' condo, before Dad set her free. Enjoy.

"VAPOUR ENERGY HORSE OF THE SKY"
by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lightning eye,
Thunder head,
Storm cloud mane;
Body of billowing vapour
In a luminescent night sky.

Vapour Energy Horse of the Sky,
You dazzle me with your lightning eye
And the thunder of your call.

Your hooves of
Wind
Take my
Breath
Away.

“PRESSED AND BAKED (Inspired by my friend Kristine Christensen’s* brilliant statement at the reception for my Valparaiso University graduation. She said, ‘I feel like a cookie, pressed and baked.’ I said, ‘Kristine! I love it! I’m going to turn it into a poem and dedicate it to you!’)” by JTK.CA

“I feel like a cookie,
Pressed and baked.”*
I’ve eaten these years away,
And it all can be seen today.

I feel like a cookie,
All crunched and digested.
I feel like a theory
That hasn’t been tested.
I’m lost in a chocolate sea;
Glued to vanilla cream;
Exhausted from ecstasy.
Here I lie
On a tray.

I’m at a reception
For my life.
People are asking
What comes next
As they take me in pieces
From the tray
And munch their curious
Souls away.

But the taste
Makes them happy,
And the chocolate
Makes them hyper.
They munch away
At my possible futures
While I figure out how to
Pay the piper.

But I will make it.
I have the power.
I am cookie;
Hear me roar.

OCD BLUES

I'm not so much in mourning, as I am adjusting to a new rhythm of life without Mom & Dad. Now that they're gone, I have a much deeper appreciation for them feeding me every night. I always went to their place for supper. The big adjustment is me eating less and pacing myself with food. As much as my federal & provincial Disability pensions help, I'm discovering it's still not enough for food. I've been on Disability since age 36 in 2004 for my http://bit.ly/SevereOCD -- I've had it my whole life. I just got tired of losing jobs over it, so I got the help I needed.

"THE METAPHORIC RADIO DIAL
(Dedicated to Jan Boshoff)"
by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When we are "in tune" with the Holy Spirit, evil spirits will not win us over. The problem is that the spiritual radio has a dial, and our sinful natures can "tune out", by moving to another station. What we really need to do is "tune into" the Holy Spirit's radio station, and then BREAK OFF THE KNOB.

And then, there is a new danger. With the tuning knob broken, we can no longer turn away from the Holy Spirit's radio station. However, we can turn the radio off. The evil spirits will still not win us over, but neither will the Holy Spirit. The only moral influence we will have left is our own sinful hearts. Though we may have been redeemed by the blood of Christ, and have a place in heaven, nothing sinful will enter, so very little of the redeemed sinner will make it into heaven either. Only the residue of God's image will make it in. The rest of the apostate man will be burned up in God's refining fire. And if we're honest with ourselves, all of us believers will enter heaven, at least, a little burnt around the edges, but only to mirror Jesus' eternal scars that brought us safely through the fire.

TAD'S NOTE: This little essay was inspired by one of my debates with fellow Christian, Jan Boshoff (http://facebook.com/jan.boshoff). He and I may not agree on everything, but, as Proverbs 27:17 (KJV) says:

"Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."

Abortion is a serial killing cabal masquerading as humanitarian while ripping limbs & crushing skulls of innocent babies in wombs of terror.

The Rebellious Rable-rouser

My inspiration for this comes from an interesting conglomeration — Alan Keyes, C.S. Lewis, and what turned out to be a very beneficial spiritual and theological symposium at a meeting with some nudist friends.

Words jumble to form thoughts.
Phrases dance between the debris
Of lost time and changed plans.

The focal point of history —
A babe in a manger,
Born to die
So he could rise . . .
Not to bring us a new religion,
But to bring us new life,
Reuniting us with God;
Hear the angels applaud.

Watch the ruckus
As the rebellious rabble-rouser
Overturns the money-changers’ tables,
Overturning our dependence on ourselves,
Our resources,
Our ingenuity —
When our Creator stands before us,
Longing for an embrace, but receiving a cross.

He claims to be the way, the truth, the life,
And the only way to the Father;
This rebellious rabble-rouser
Is the only one.
You must either say,
“He’s the Son of God,”
or
“He’s a fraud.”

Lauding him with honours
As a great philosopher
Who sought the truth
Just won’t do,
When he came to show us
He “is” the truth.
Our seeking ends in finding him.

So simple that children can understand,
While the most brilliant academics
Get lost in the calculations between faith and reason.

Jesus Christ is not a formula,
Not an apparition,
And not a tradition.
He’s the Son of God
Who became Son of Man —
From Creator to becoming his own creation —
To bridge the gaps between
Faith and reason,
Man and God,
Hell and Heaven.

God’s only fury is for
A salvation scorned.

Come to Christ;
It’s why he came.
