God Made a Special Day
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



We often think of birthdays

With loved ones on our list

And make a special note of such

So that not one is missed

We  go the extra mile

If we're monetarily blessed

To lavish gifts upon them

Which says " you're the best!"


Happy are those moments

Enjoying with our friends

And family which are near us

Until the birthday ends

We're made to feel so special

On that chosen day

To celebrate our  entrance

Into the world this way


A joy that God has given us

A date, and time, and place

A continual celebration

As part of the human race

Until we leave this birthing

And breathe our final breathe

Birthday wishes follow us

They're with us until death


But Jesus "birthday baby"

Was different than the most

Was preordained and witnessed by

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

A birthday that was "special"

For "He would save the day"

When sin sought to destroy us

A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR. Because of "CHRIST" there's  CHRISTMAS. Hallelujah,  what a Saviour!

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. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
