Amazing What a Picture

Amazing what a picture
Of a heart can do
Basically sending a message
"I love you"
When you hear of a problem
That's causing a lot of pain
"My heart goes out to you"
Is an often heard refrain

The heart our center of emotions
From which emits our love
Has especially been implanted
As a gift from God
For not only does it pump the blood
That keeps us all alive
But feels the needs that others have
In order to survive

The heart is ever watchful
For it's built that way
To be ever seeking
To help someone today
Have you had your checkup
How is your heart doing
Don't let it get hardened
You'll be the one that's losing!

Let God's love rule your heart
For then in perfect peace
You'll seek to do the Father's will
And your love will increase
For thus He bade His children do
To you and to me my brother
This is a commandment I give unto you
That ye love one another!

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
