Spiritual Gifts from the Heart
Author Offers Hope, Encouragement through Inspirational Verse in New Poetry Collection
APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. - Author Steve Dalhover offers hope and encouragement to even the most downtrodden readers in his new poetry collection, Gifts from my Heart (now available through AuthorHouse).
Through inspirational, spiritual verse, Dalhover stresses the importance of understanding God's plan and, above all, "celebrating life now and in the days to come," he says.
His poems highlight God's presence in dark times, and provide readers with the knowledge that God is beside them during these struggles. The poem "A Brave Little Boy" is about God's presence even in the most tragic of deaths:
Mattie was a brave little boy,
Through his poetry he brought joy,
He knew someday he might die,
And he knew all would cry,
But Mattie is at rest and no more pain,
Peace at last he has attained,
The day is coming when God will say,
Come out Mattie to a new day,
The scripture at John 5:28, 29 says it all,
Mattie will hear that glorious call,
There all our loved ones will be,
Back amongst you and me,
So yes it hurts that Mattie lost his fight,
But to him it will be like one night,
Awaking to a brand new Earth,
Just like a baby at its birth,
The Bible says death will be no more,
All new things are in store,
So keep your faith in the God above,
And he will fill you with his love.
