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 it cast a shadow. The shadow was 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.
