NOTE: Word-of-mouth is the only advertising I have ever done and I thank those who have spread the word. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for donations. 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 over 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, 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...

Jesus 9-13-08



Jesus never hurt anyone.
Jesus never turned away from a need.
Jesus healed.
Jesus fed.
Jesus helped.
Jesus loved.

Yet the world hated Him.
Why?

The world condemned Him.
The world charged Him.
The world judged Him.
The world mocked Him.
The world hung Him.
The world killed Him.
The world still uses His name in vain.

Why?

What kind of reward is that for helping, healing, and loving others?
How do we respond to this truth?
Do we care?

We are - either ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ – not lukewarm.
God so loved the world that He gave.
Jesus so loved that He gave himself.
How much are we willing to give?

What have we done?
