What’s Your Name?

Years ago a young boy

on a moon less night

gazed amazingly into the sky

as Jesus and he lay side by side.

Jesus do they all have names?

son does what have names?

Your stars Jesus,

do they all Have names?

 Abba and I named them each one.

Jesus what are their names?

My son look, listen, and ask;

What’s your name?

They shall whisper to you their name!

Gazing he focused on one star and asked

What’s your name?

a whisper, “Promise”

Jesus he said Promise!

son go ahead, ask another.

What’s your name?

“Cheerful.”

What’s your name?

“Joy.”

What’s your name?

“Faith.”

What’s your name?

“Peace.”

What’s your name?

“Paradise.”

What’s your name?

“Grace.”

What’s your name?

“Generosity.”

What’s your name?

“Gentleness.”

What’s your name?

“Kindness.”

What’s your name?

“Long Suffering.”

What’s your name?

“Passion.”

What’s your name?

“Plea.”

What’s your name?

“Mercy.”

What’s your name?

“Liberty.”

What’s your name?

“Love.”

What’s your name?

“Forgiven.”

and on into the night

till the boy fell asleep

in the arms of Jesus.

Psalm 19:1-3;

The heavens declare the glory of 

God;

And the firmament shows

His handiwork.

Day unto day utters speech,

and night unto night

reveals knowledge.

There is no speech

nor language

Where their voice is not heard.

  4. This is fantastic! Loved it! Next time I am sitting out on my patio swing and look up into the stars, I will call them all by Name!! Thank you!!

  5. I love all the names of our Lord and Savior thank you so much for sharing your boyhood dreams and thoughts they have served you well my friend! ~ Blessings ~

    • The truth be told Ernesto Carraso’s blog, sorry for no link, had a great post on stars more formal than I, it brought back some memories and I ask him some questions if it would be misleading if I wrote a poem like this. Now for the memories they came from a camping trip with my Dad. Yes I was the one making up the names that night but Jesus was there with us also and yes it took some time for me to fall asleep. That was fifty years ago + or – a year or so on a river bank fishing, I don’t think we caught any fish. God Bless you I just went down that memory lane again. May our Lord fill your days to come with many more precious memories, Amen.

  6. This one brought a tear to my eye. Happy tear:) Very touching, James.
    I laid with my back against the grass last night looking up at the stars. No doubt I was not alone.
