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.


As the princess lie asleep in bed

thoughts of love went through her head.

Dreaming of valleys and quiet streams,

as some of the thoughts filled her dreams.


As she was lying asleep in her bed

two angels hovered above her head.

Goodness and mercy were their names

and they came to stop the devils games.


Goodness knelt and then kissed her head

while mercy drew a circle around her head.

Then drawing swords, they took their place,

while the peace of God showed on her face.


Goodness and mercy showed the princess care

and it was the love of God that they did share.

Safe from harm while the princess did sleep,

as they prayed to God her soul to keep.





Striving for a goal that is priceless in worth,

it is the one of having God’s timeless peace on earth.

The last days of confessing for our spiritual grace,

as Christians receive blessings of the Lord’s embrace.


God’s timeless peace on earth is sooner than we think,

 and in God’s perspective can happen when we blink.

In a twinkling of an eye our life on earth will end,

with Jesus in the sky and the peace that God will send.


An end to war, killing, and all hatred will cease,

then souls who are willing will have eternal peace.

Looking forward to those days to witnessing a new birth,

as we all wait for God’s timeless peace on earth.


God’s timeless peace on earth comes after a fact,

it is the time we witness Jesus Christ coming back. 

Christians will then part and find again God does care,

with Jesus in our heart we will meet Him in the air.


What Christmas Means


To think about what Christmas means

but not in fantasies and dreams.

We know in fact when it had begun

as the birthday of God’s only Son.

Even if our worldly ways seem fine

when we celebrate with alcohol or wine.

That’s going our own way in fact

and with Jesus we just turn our back.

With caring love for all to see

it first must start with family.

No matter the time, space or the weather

the important thing is being together.

We need to start especially

at Christmas time with family.

Material gifts don’t take the place

of family, love and God’s tender grace.





It was the day after father’s day in 2015

it was like no other day I have ever seen.

With the weather in Florida being hot not mild,

but the day I witnessed birth of my first grandchild.


I heard of the birth of my granddaughter on that day

and started thanking God through the prayers I prayed.

another beautiful gift from God born into the world

has the beauty of an angels face with its wings unfurled.

 My granddaughters name is Akenzlie and a joy she is to see

she’s one of God’s creations who’s special to my wife and me.

Now my wife and I have a grandchild that we will surely love,

with our thankfulness to God for this gift from above.

 My first grandchild, Akenzlie Faith, is a gift from God I know

and my prayer is she will know God as she will learn and grow. 

With her middle name Faith, this is what I pray,

that she will keep her eyes on God each and every day.



 I heard the words of a voice that was clear

the words that were spoken are I am here.

The Comforter from God called the Holy Spirit

and the message that was spoken, I did hear it.


Saying I have to be careful when making a choice,

by making sure I’m listening to the right voice.

Through prayer and supplication it was made clear,

that it was God who spoke the words of I am here.


God says I am here so that I will recognize,

so I won’t be deceived by the father of all lies.

The enemy comes to kill, destroy, and to steal,

that’s why I need to follow God’s word that’s real.


I am here are those three words God does say

which guides and directs me throughout every day.

When I have faith in God it will drown out all fear,

as long as I listen to God’s three words I am here.





 The presence of God is the true loving way,

it’s the way we should go every day.
A peaceful surrounding, almost solitude,

in accord with the Lord, with the right attitude.


A beginning new feeling each time that we go

a release to this peace the way God does show.

Jesus died for our sins and He is our cure,

God forgives then we live, eternally for sure.


God’s presence is always the place we should be

you could be blind then you will find,

in God you will see.

He’s the creator and healer from now till the end

He’s our Lord that’s adored, and love

He does send.


God’s presence is always there when we ask

when we pray every day He fulfills His task.

We glorify God because He is there

He’s our Lord that’s adored,

and in all ways He cares.




Have faith the size of a mustard seed

and God will fulfill your every need.

Faith in God is evidence thereof,

which starts out with His perfect love.


Have faith in God as you focus your eyes

on the Almighty Father who is truly wise.

He will never at all lead you astray

as long as you continue to pray.


Have faith in God, it’s no mistake

for He will never leave or forsake.

He guides you through valleys to mountaintop,

now blessed with success, the cream of the crop.


Have faith in God the Giver of life

who gave His only Son Jesus Christ.

He died for our sins so we can be free

and a life everlasting we’ll live eternally.





With war and expedition feeling not so right

it’s time for a transition and focus on the light.

Seeing many situations bringing forth negativity

in every single nation it is time to be free.


A hidden goal and dream for all of us to know

in some ways it seems to be just like a show.

With all that God intends for us since time begun

is love which He does send through His only Son.


A world without hate is the way that it should be

you know it’s not too late to focus and to see.

With Bible intuition now is the time to search

 it’s not superstition to love and go to church.


With love and intervention as the Way, Truth, and Life

I need to mention that you never should lose sight. 

Now a world with all of love in Jesus’ name we pray

comes from God above, every single day.





We are in the testing place

of this world again.

And conspiracies of trials

which the enemy tries to send.

When we feel we cannot win

it’s then we focus right.

It is then that we do begin

to focus on the one true light.

We are here so we can see

just how strong we all can be.

Through temptations and the battles that we fight

that come to us both day and night.

Like a ship in a storm

with thunder that will roar.

We are tossed by each wave

then see the lighthouse on the shore.

The lighthouse that we see

is Jesus Christ the one true light.

As we are guided through each trial

by His power and his might.

With the trials and tribulations

and knowing that Christ is near.

No matter what the trial

He takes away our fear.

Though we look through a glass darkly

but then face to face we see.

Jesus as our lighthouse

with Gods’ goodness and His grace.
