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...

Morning Sky!, The 2-1-14


My sleepy eyes were no disguise
for soul in such despair.
There's no defense.  It made no sense
and midnight didn't care.

The days flew past, they didn't last
and darkness made me frown.
Sin filled my mind and I was blind.
Vast blackness weighed me down.

My futile ways brought wasted days
and I began to cry.
So sad because my story was -
and I began to die...
---
Awake, I shook!  The morning took
me largely by surprise.
I felt great shame, repentance came
and grace drew me to rise.

Yes, Jesus lives and He forgives!
He makes my spirit whole!
And all the while, you'll see my smile
from such a sunlit soul!

And it awakes as Jesus takes
my burdens by and by.
The brilliant love of God above
now lights the morning sky!

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature;
the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
