A Lifetime of Treasures
The 13th of 14 children by her mother, Mrs. Battle tackles her turbulent growing pains by writing poetry. After graduating from The Ohio State University, Mrs. Battle began to write about her life. It was at OSU that Mrs. Battle met her husband; Bryan Battle Sr. Both Bryan and Mary are law enforcement officers with the local and state government. Bryan contributes to the book by adding one man’s philosophical view of life. This compilation is the third of seven books by the Battle family.
The Faithful Servant
Time is the enemy of us all.
It shall wait for no man, short or tall.
The Faithful Servant repeated these words.
He looked to God to bring him some help.
He trusted God to bring him out of the mess.
His faith delivered us from the evil one.
This we must confess.
His faith brought us into the land to stay.
Man has gone astray.
Nevertheless, the faithful servants have remained.
God gave them a new name.
