I have been writing poetry for almost 30 years and I am now a published Christian author. I have 2 books published now and i'm currently working on my third for next year, 2015.


Oh Jesus Christ sweet Lord of all

in winter, spring, summer, and fall.

Oh Father God let peace be still,

You own the cattle on a thousand hills.


There is one thing Lord I do proclaim,

You are the first and will always reign.

Your love, joy, and awesome power,

keeps pouring down just like a shower.


Lord Jesus Christ You are the best,

because You are far and above the rest.

Each and everyday I focus just on You,

because Your love, joy and peace is true.


In my life each day I look above,

for Your peace, joy, and everlasting love.

Then Your fresh anointing rains on down,

as I feel Your presence all around.



The Peace of God

As we pray for all to have a peace of mind,

through this it’s joy and love they will find.

In having true peace throughout each land,

is having the peace of God and understand.

To accept the peace of God in our heart,

in our life every day He is the main part.

God loves and provides us with His tender care,

the overflow goes to those who we share.

To have the peace of God every day,

 it is everlasting and will not go away.

Showing others the peace that God gives,

is a shining example on how they should live.

Through God’s peace we handle every day,

as He receives words from prayers we do pray.

When we notice, focus, and pray for one another,

we live our lives eternal as sisters and brothers.

A Trip In God’s Spirit

God came to me one night in a dream,

a one way trip or so it did seem.

My soul set forth in this revelation,

to each city, state, and every nation.

This bonding together in one accord,

is priceless and no one can afford.

I came close to God and I mean solely,

a trip I did take to God’s Holy of Holies.

With no feeling like this in the world,

I witnessed angels wings unfurled.

On this trip with God’s Holy Spirit,

the enemy deceives us all to fear it.

I came together with God in unity,

the colors of a rainbow I did see.

This trip I took we all should take, 

God’s grace endured for heaven’s sake.


The Lord is my rock who delivered me
from the snares of death by the enemy.
He’s my refuge and fortress from all distress
and it’s through Him that I know I am blessed.
The Lord is my rock and my salvation
that is the key in the book of Revelation.
He’s the solid foundation where I plant my feet
and through Him I will never get beat.
The Lord is my rock, stronghold and shield
who guides me through the enemy’s field.
He has the key to the enemies lock
He is my deliverer, and the Lord is my rock.
The Lord is my rock and this will I share
this is the way I know He does care.
With forgiveness and mercy on each of us
we need to give Him all our faith and trust.



My father God and creator Lord,

in all ways you should be adored.

For through your son named Jesus Christ,

you give to us a brand new life.

By accepting Jesus in our heart,

He then becomes that special part.

For through His Holy Spirit’s source,

It is time we let God take His course.

By opening our hearts and minds,

these gifts from God we all can find.

They will be with us each passing day,

and come to us if we would just pray.

Now we can shine His light to others around,

and share with them God’s gift’s we have found.

With the Holy Spirit life is so clear,

as He comforts us when He is near.




As the rushing river flows downstream,

and the eagle flies on high.

Our life goes by with faster means,

like the twinkling of God’s eye.

There are times in our life of emptiness and pain,

soon our life is over and we have no gain.

Our life passes by in one generation,

we are just specks compared to other creations.

Our life is a blade of grass in the early morning sun,

but by evening the grass is withered, old, and done.

As the wind does blow and the rain does fall,

we know that God created it all.

Our life needs balance and the Holy Spirit in control,

for everlasting freedom with that oneness in our soul.

A joy that is eternal for we are heaven bound,

having the Lord in our heart where He is found.


I built a wall between us by falling into sin,

the day I left my Lord and my troubles did begin.

I left the clear natural path and took the rough terrain,

where I found those sinful pleasures that tempted me again.

I continued down that rugged path, most times it was alone,

sometimes it was with others but my sins were my own.

When darkness fell and the rain came down,

is when I had to change my way and turn my life around.

But just as I began to turn I sensed that I was lost,

following those sinful ways did not come without a cost.

I began to follow others as we looked for the right road,

but I was soon exhausted for my sin was a heavy load.

Within the crowd there were temptations small and great,

but soon I found I had to stop, I couldn’t bear the weight.

I had to change my way, then looked straight unto my right,

At the end of the path I saw there was a light.

In the light there was a hill, three crosses sat on top,

tried to keep on going but I knew I had to stop.

I saw the pain sin caused and the price there was to pay,

as if I held the hammer that drove the nails on that day.

I’m sorry for the things I’ve done and things I’ve left undone, sorry when I had plenty and others they had none.

And as I cried and begged I heard those words so true,

my Father please forgive them for they don’t what they do.

I walk the straight and narrow path and try not to roam,

I know that if I follow Him then I will soon be home.

Soon out in the distance there is a light I will see,

it’s the place known as heaven called eternity.


On the straight and narrow that I may learn,

to go this way as there are no turns.

I make my goals and strive to reach,

the meaning of what God does teach.

We look for meaning as a plus,

and find that God is the one to trust.

In finding the pathways that are good,

you pray to see if it’s the one you should.

I look ahead as goals to complete,

I pray to God whom I will meet.

This straight and narrow that I view,

will give me eternal life brand new.

In life we learn that we should stay,

on this path of the straight and narrow way.

The meaning comes if you will trust,

then your whole life will be a plus.


A prisoner of hope will always prevail,

because with God they cannot fail. A dark

shade of memory of their past move in, but

through prayer and supplication to God they win.



A prisoner of hope with God on their side, with

principles of the Bible in God they abide. Looking

to God as their Father who is above and they

 will be renewed by His everlasting love.


A prisoner of hope looks to God as the way,

an access to His freedom on any given day.

With worship, prayer, and thanks to the Lord,

who in all ways is the One that’s adored.


A prisoner of hope will look always above,

receiving goodness and mercy by God’s love.

As they do look beyond any darkness they see,

because through Jesus Christ they are free.
