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...

Just Another Angel 7-23-12


(based on a true story this morning, Monday, July 23, 2012.  The pastor is 91)

His wife and son were in the store.
He shuffled past me twice.
My eyes were red.  I hid my face.
I wanted no advice.

He must have sensed my emptiness
as I was feeling low -
because he sat down next to me.
I had nowhere to go.

We both were thinking our own thoughts
and neither said a word -
until his son walked up to us
and this is what I heard...

"My dad was once a pastor -
and had been several years.
He helped so many countless souls
and quenched their many fears."

Just then his wife came up to him
and said, "I'm ready now."
It had an impact over me.
Right then, I knew not how.

The pastor said some simple words
as he stood up to leave.
He simply said, "God loves you and
He wants you to believe."

He turned, began to walk away,
so I said, "Thank you much."
At that, he smiled and said goodbye.
I felt a loving touch.

A touch that cannot be described
in just a word or two -
but cures the lowest, broken heart
when it hears, "God loves you."

Was this a pure coincidence?
Were these words meant to be,
from just another angel sent,
from God, to earth - for me?
