About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972.

I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl).

I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior!

I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD.

Jesus... The First and Last Adam!

Jesus…  The First and Last Adam!


I wonder what it was like in the

 days of Adam and Eve…

The fellowship they had until the day

 they had to leave.


What a blessing it must have been

to have a Godly communion…

As they were joined together

 in a Godly union…


Their love for God was

 devoted and strong.

Until the day sin crept in

where it didn’t belong.


Satan, the serpent, told them that

they would become “wise…”

Soon afterward, they realized

 it was a bunch of lies


They were cast out of a beautiful

and wonderful place.

But were within the reach

 of God’s mercy and grace!


From Eve’s seed, would one day

be born the Messiah and king.

Whom…  One day…  Would rule as

Lord of everything!


This fellowship between God and

 man can be YOURS today!

Please listen to the words

 the savior has to say!


Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on

 the cross…  You're invited!

Won’t you come to HIM now?

  Your future has been provided!
