"The fool says in his heart, there is no God" (Psalm 14:1).

I love God more than I like New York; I love God more than I like to work. I like chocolate; I like Vermont, but my love for God sprang from a font.

I love God more than I like the Mets; I love God more than placing bets. I like the stickers on a car, but my love for God is up to par.

I love God more than Styx and Stones; I love God more than ice-cream cones. I like the board-walk and the shore, but my love for God comes from the core.

I love God more than O.T.B; I love God more, unequivocally. I like some beer on a summer day, but my love for God shows me the way.

I love God more than a fast-food dish; I love God more than french-fried fish. I like good music and dancing too, but my love for God will still run true .

I love God more than sports and games; I love God more than big-star names. I like whipped-cream and apple-pie, but my love for God will never die.

I love God more than Rosemarie, although I like her anatomy. I like to hold her by the hand, but my love for God has its own brand.

I love God in all I do; I love God when I pursue; His love in return, without compare; His Word of wisdom, that I try to share.

I like your focus in this poem, George, the insight posed by the end line that you are there by invitation and the rest of it fails to lead you.....Jerry
