Mobile Phone Users: I apologize if you are having a problem reading the text of my poems on your mobile device. I use a web design mechanism which automatically shrinks or expands images, based on the screen resolution of the device that is being used. In the case of mobile phones, it shrinks the image to a size where the text is barely readable. However, if I don't use this mechanism, then the image will be full-size on your phone, and you will have to scroll a little to the right in order to read the full poem. So either you scroll right, or else use your fingers to enlarge the image. However, if you use an iPad, other tablet or desktop computer, the images will look sharp and clear, and will automatically be displayed at their full size of 500x400 pixels, 696x560 pixels, or larger.

"And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed."
Hebrews 12:5-13, KJV
