God Chose

God chose the season of Resurrection
He knew it would be spring
For that's the season of early planting
Then growth of everything
The One who prayed in the garden
Became earth's Gardener
And with the washing of the Word
Made Salvation sure!

See the calves amongst the cattle
In their play and friskiness
Visual display of lively matter
Recipients whom our God did bless
A sure reminder of spring's wonder
Alive...alert...as all get out
Dependant on their doting mothers
As they romp and play about

Then there's us such needy sinners
Weighted down with cares and such
Unaware of how He changes
Then we have the Saviour's touch
And "new life" makes blessed reactions
Swift to praise the God of love
Sins forgiven... hallelujah!
Christ the Lord now reigns above!

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
