Love words and, have a need to express the Lord's point of view: in poetry, music, songs and teachings, that center on the church, and His mighty WORD!!
You can't please everyone!
If you, please only yourself;
it'll leave you Spiritually:
So. I choose to do my best,
To please HIM:
It's up to us,
to get on the bus,
that to heaven's door,
His loving word, guides us, tells us,
what we need to know.
He'll take us with our baggage,
then tosses it, out the back.
We need nothing but, our,
heart for Him, and nothing,
will we, lack.
For His Grace, and awesome, power,
are more than sufficient, for thee.
And the ticket costs:
but, our miserable selves,
What a deal!
It might as well, be:
Articulation, life's essence, portrayed in stanzas, that quicken images within the soul
An artist, that paints with words, on a canvas, in the reader's mind
Nectar poured from a pen, delicious sensation, sipped, thru the eyes
and savored in the heart, enticing expressions, of beauty, or wonders untold
Whether memory, or imagination, love, or hate depicted, or ordinary things, dynamically portrayed
The poet, can touch the heart of another, and bring understanding, to a closed mind
Breaking down walls, that, over time, with bricks of pain and suffering, were, fashioned, and laid
Provoking thought, providing light, reviving love, buried in the pain, of one's past
The desire, of this author, is to brighten a dark path, through, conveying, God's enlightenment,
to the sinner, and the chaste.
Birth Place: Munich, Germany
Accomplishments: To be called by God to minister to the lost and His church, is by far and away, the best, and most distinguished, but to add a few, decorated war veterean, Vietnamese cross of gallantry, Air Force accomodation medal for valor and same for meritorious service, owner/CEO Mktg/Adv agency, many national awards and recognition in national Health care journals on market share achievements and how using my agency as a means of attaining success oriented marketing, a lot of small awards and such. The real truth is they mean little if integrity and honor are not the things you are most proud of and committed to.

And the ticket costs: but, our miserable selves,
What a deal! It might as well, be: Free!!
