Testimony of saving faith for Christians only
I 1967 I experienced a conversion of grace. Since then I have daily deepened
this experience by a prayerfull
meditation of the Sacred Scripture, always centering on
Jesus.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City.
I am married and we have two grown sons
and two grand-sons.
My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967.
Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the
spiritual in recovery from addictions.
I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.

Come the Spring

 

Across the snowy fields, sky meets land

where clouds appear as though they touch the trees;

creation here abounds in patient stand

before the cold winds change to warming breeze.

All nature thrives from roots to surely cope

in harshest weather - 'tis the Winter season;

but time's horizon whispers subtle hope

ordained since God began His plan with reason.

Concordance here reflects to surely glimmer

how to endure our trials and to trust

His Word...each day much brighter - never dimmer

for us, created from the earth's own dust

by Him, who gifts us with each day, to sing

of great eternal glory...come the Spring...

 

 

(a Shakespearean sonnet)
