Bought for a Price

The devil tried
to kick me out of
Heaven’s forgiving grip

He was thwarted
in his scheme
to tender my pink slip

Jesus, my Redeemer
displayed to my foe
the deed to my soul

Marked paid-in-full
on Calvary’s tree
as written in His scroll



I missed the last Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub, but I decided I didn’t want to miss it two times in a row. Besides I couldn’t miss #44! So I stole a moment to write this little poem using the work kick as offered by De.

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    A pink slip is no match for the deed to one’s soul.
