01-12-2024 Sirach 9 V0809 Beauty yours gaze not upon




The Book of Sirach Ch Nine v- Eight thru Nine

8 Avert your eyes from a shapely woman; do not gaze upon beauty that is not yours; Through woman’s beauty many have been ruined, for love of it burns like fire. 9 Never recline at table with a married woman, or drink intoxicants with her, Lest your heart be drawn to her and you go down in blood to the grave.


A poem to reflect how one should act towards another’s woman or wife. Seems obvious to me but the world blatantly shows the excess of self leads to sexual desires of seeking more and more instead of cherishing your one and only true love. I call her my soul-mate in Christ and I seriously look the other way when something distracting is near by. I think this is called respect for the mate of your soul allowing a love to flourish that resonates God first in all things. You see it in how we treat one another the way we look at one another the way we embrace one another the way we hold hands together the way we pray over one another surely this aspect is the most important thing to do with the one you love more than life itself. Most definitely we would die for one another and this is the type of respectful love you give to the one and only you call your spouse. Enjoy the poem keep your eyes on Jesus and find the joy of loving another as One in Him to be One together seeking goodwill as one unified couple of Christ’s love. Amen.


Boundaries Respect


In this world of temptation and desire,

There’s a lesson to learn, a warning to acquire,

About gazing upon a woman, not yours to claim,

A tale of caution, lest we end up in pain.


So don’t gaze upon a beauty that’s not yours,

Especially a married woman, love implores,

For the heartache and the strife it may bring,

A fight to the grave, a bitter ending.


There’s a fire in her eyes, a captivating smile,

But within her heart, another man’s vial,

Respect the sacred bond, the trust they share,

For love can turn to anger, beyond repair.


Love is meant to be cherished, not torn apart,

By the selfish desires that reside in our hearts,

Let’s honor the commitments, the vows we’ve made,

And find our own path, where true love won’t fade.


In the depths of our souls, let empathy rise,

For the battles fought within, hidden from prying eyes,

Let’s choose compassion over shallow desire,

And kindle the flames of love, higher and higher.


So let us learn this lesson, etched in our minds,

To cherish the love that we ourselves may find,

For in respecting boundaries, we’ll find our own grace,

And avoid the battles that could lead us to our grave. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

01-12-2024 Sirach 9 v-0809


**Beauty yours gaze not upon**


Woman shapely eyes avert

Beauty yours gaze not upon

Ruined many a beautiful woman’s spurt

Fire like burns ruin those who spawn


Woman married recline not at table

With her intoxicants drink not

Her heart’s love do not enable

Grave you’ll rest in this blood spot
