“Volume #1”


Ever since the 1990’s, the Lord has been inspiring me with poems. In the beginning I did not realize, how it was Him speaking to my heart, with a message for others. As my walk with Him strengthened, because my love for Him grew, I understood more the importance of keeping my eyes off myself and become a living example, of what the true love of Christ is all about. May you find these poems a special path to bring you in a closer relationship with Him.

Isaiah 29:13 And Jehovah said, Because this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips honor Me, but have removed their heart far from Me…

Not me Lord, not me!

“Volume #2”


 Who would of thought, that at this stage in my life, I would have a fruitful outreach ministry, and writing poems, His poems, which He can reach into the hearts of people and will bring them closer to Himself. I wouldn’t of thought, but He knew all along. He was just waiting for me. I pray this book, Volume 2, will bring all who read His words, to know Him better, or for some just to know Him.
 1Peter 4:11 If anyone speaks, let it be as the words of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as of the ability which God gives, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ, to whom is the glory, and the might forever and ever. Amen.
 May these poems bring glory to His Holy name.

“Volume #3”


 Touching a life for the Kingdom, how awesome that is. Allowing God’s poetic words to reach into the heart of someone else, all because I love Him. I pray this book, Volume 3, for all who read it will fully understand it was His words and not mine. All I can take credit for is the obedience part and the love connection between God’s heart and mine. I love reading in John’s gospel, the 21st chapter, where Jesus is asking Simon Peter if he loves Him? What is your answer to Jesus? I know what mine is and I would answer just as Peter did.

John 21:15 Then when they broke fast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these? He said to Him, Yes, Lord, You know that I love You. He said to him, Feed My lambs.

John 21:16 He said to him the second time, Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me? He said to Him, Yes, Lord, You know that I love You. He said to him, Feed My sheep.

John 21:17 He said to him the third time, Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me? Peter was grieved because He said to him a third time, Do you love Me? And he said to Him, Lord, You know all things, You know that I love You. Jesus said to him, Feed My sheep.

May this book of poems reinforce your love for Him or help you start a journey of love with Him.

Vol #4.jpg

“Volume #4”


 As I was listing the poems for the table of contents page I discovered that I was blessed with (51) poems in November and (49) in December. Wow! Talk about "Doing the math"! God was busy speaking His mind to me those two months. Just reading through the title's gave me "goose bumps"! Wow! Yes, with Him I use that word a lot.
 So after listing the (100) poem titles I said, "Lord, give me Your Word to share. Touch their hearts with "wows" as you touch mine".
 Then He took me to Genesis 6:6 And Jehovah repented that He had made man on the earth, and He was angry to His heart.
 Ok, now picture this! Rewind back to Genesis chapter 1 verse 26 and 27; And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. Now read the first sentence in verse 28, And God blessed them.
 In Genesis 6:6 because of man and woman’s heart turned against their creator, they rejected His love, “He was angry to His heart!”
 My friends, praise God that He didn't stop there. Praise God that He had Noah! You can read about that in verse 8! Wow! Does God find favor in you? I pray with this book of poems you see what He sees in me. Love!
 May this book of poems reinforce your love for Him or help you start a journey of love with Him.

“Volume #5”


  Another book of "His" poems. Another chance to touch a life through His love. Did you ever stop to think why He loves you? Do you believe there is a God? Do you believe that God has a Son named, Jesus? Do you believe that Jesus died on the cross for yours and my sins? Do you believe that when Jesus arose from the grave and returned to be with His Father, that He sent the Holy Spirit to reside in each of us?
 My friends in the last four questions you will find the same word, "believe!"
 Mark 11:24 Therefore I say to you, All things, whatever you ask, praying, believe that you shall receive them, and it will be to you.
 Mark 1:14-15 And after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom of God,
 and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God draws near. Repent, and believe the gospel.
 If you can replace the last four questions with "I", in place of "Do you", and repent, then the Kingdom of God will be within you.
 May your spiritual hearts be open to receive what God is speaking to you through His Word and these "His" poems.

“Volume #6”


  Seedtime. Finally after 22 1/2 years the Lord's poetry seeds have been planted. 574 poems He planted in my heart, so I would plant them in as many hearts that would be willing to read what He was saying to me to be shared. Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease”.
 Now what is left is the harvest. See even before I gave control of my life to the Lord in 1997, He was speaking to me with His wonderful poems. I didn't know but He knew that I would be faithful in fulfilling His request of me. In total He gave me 6 volumes. If you look back at the early volumes, you will see that in some months He gave me just a few poems, and when He had me ready, it would increase to a high of 51 for the month of November 2010.
 In the story of the talents found in Matthew 25:23, His lord said unto him, “Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord”.
 See, I did not wait for the harvest before finishing what God wanted me to do. My job was to plant the "seeds", He will bring it all to harvest.
