Planting a Seed and Watching It
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

This is a poem I read Saturday night at a gala for RAM (Reading,Arts and Mathmetics) summer enrichment for children in my community, where we raise donations. The title of the affair was "Planting seeds and watching them grow"..I am on the Board of Directors.


Planting a seed and watching it grow - saturating and watering it every

day - little by little, step by step - we watch it grow into a glorious

harvest - planting a seed and watching it grow in fertile ground the

possibilities are endless - the destiny placed inside by God’s loving

Hands will come forth strong and indestructible - strengthened by the

gifts of many teachers, family and friends -implanted forever in the soul

of a  small life shaped by a caring heart that will never be forgotten - for

we have taken the time to love, inspire and encourage - by

Planting a seed and watching it grow!

Planting a seed of hope and dreams for the future - there is no greater

reward than to see the light come through in the smile of a child -

whose heart is set free - open to receive and believe for a better

life- planting a seed and watching it grow - will forever be

remembered and multiplied - the gifts and talents that were hidden

inside - will come forth like spring flowers of yellow, red and purple - a

vibrant, beautiful garden - the seeds of greatness unlocked by the key

of patience, kindness and caring - of those who saw the need and

Planted a seed and watched it grow!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
