NOTE: I thank those who have spread the word of my site. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for money. My poems are free so that even the poorest of the poor can be comforted with my poetry. I am pleased when others are blessed. No amount of money can surpass that. I am now blessed with about 10,000 page views per month and my prayer is that through my poetry, that this world can become a safer, more loving and respectful place - that those who do not know who Jesus really was (and still is), will come to know the peace, healing, sacrifice and grace He has given to those who truly believe in Him and faithfully follow. I pray that you enjoy my story poems...

OUR TRUE NEED 2-10-07

.
We don't need a job or new tires for the car.
We don't need vacations to travel afar....
We don't need more money, power, or fame.
And we don't need to know who won what game.

We don't need a furnace to heat our new houses.
We don't need a diamond to buy our spouses.
We don't need potatoes, gravy and meat.
And we do not need to go out to eat.

We don't need more presents for under the tree.
We don't need to "buy one and get one free".
We don't need to rake all the leaves from our yards.
And we don't need more charges on credit cards.

You might think this poem a little bit odd,
But what we do need - is more faith in God.
Put it all in perspective, no need to discuss....
We need more of Jesus - and a lot less of us.
