Destiny – I wrote this poem on May 2, 2006. I had just received a rubber stamp depicting the Lord as a child standing by Joseph’s work bench. The sun was shining through the window as Jesus was playing and his shadow was depicted as the Cross of Calvary. This rubber stamp inspired the poem.

That Great Reunion Day – This poem is the result of meditating on that wonderful event yet to happen – the Rapture. This was written in February, 1981, not long after my salvation.

The Comforter – 1981 was when I discovered that the Lord had given me this gift of poetry. I was working at a company where the people I supported traveled a great deal and I had a lot of idle time on my hands.
