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 (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...

Those Nail Scars 9-12-13


Must we see it to believe it?
Must we ask the Lord if we
may touch His prints to get some hints
of what has come to be?

A 'doubting one' had seen God's Son.
He saw our Master's hands.
Did Thomas learn and then discern
mere facts to understand?

Are we to seek and take a peek
for proof so we might know?
Are we remiss within our bliss
that our faith fails to grow?

Those nail scars were never ours.
Pure sin had seized those crowds.
But in the end, Christ did ascend
up through the yielding clouds.

So many view, but there are few
who understand 'the fall'.
Through burdens' weight, our Lord was great -
then rose above it all!
