Love Leaves An Imprint

Love leaves an imprint
When it's given lavishly
And finds response from the one's
Who are loved so lovingly
It's God's special magic
When love is in the air
A "fresh aroma" if you please
You can see it everywhere

What goes around comes around
So love while you can love
It is a special grace from God
Our Father up above
Love is a sure " healing balm"
Love covers many a sin
Cover your life with the love of God
Start by knowing Him

For "God is love".....and what a love
The half has never been told
Who sent His son to die for our sin
The greatest story ever told
And enabled men to employ
His love to bringforth change
By showing love into others
All done " in Jesus name!"

So go, go, go and love
It shows the world the Father
Some will say " don't love so much"
You take that love still further
Make love find it's resting place
And take up " sure abode"
In the hearts who have been loved
And trusted in the Lord!

Give the world a taste of love
Turn bitter into better
Love with grace from the heart
Not just in a letter
Show that love....give of yourself
This to God is well pleasing
For He pressed out love through Jesus Christ
Let us love and please Him!

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
