Dear Charlie...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Dear Charlie…


Charlie, I apologize for his

 unloving behavior…

He’s  a poor example of his

 Lord and savior.


He’s not being someone who’s

loving and kind.

He’s having a hard time of putting

 the past behind.


He seems unwilling to do what

scripture says to do.

He can’t seem to say;

“brother I really love you.”


People like listen don’t heed the

 message of the cross.

They seem angry, bitter

and don’t count the cost.


They don’t seem to care what

 Christ wants us to be.

But have consequences that’ll

last for eternity.


I hope that he’ll learn and

one day be concerned.

This point in life, he’s really

 taken the wrong turn.


Love and forgiveness are the

keys to happiness.

So our life won’t become filled

with bitterness!


“Do unto others as they would

do unto you.”

This is the best advice there

 is for him and you!


Charlie, I wish you best in the days

that are coming.

Let’s follow Christ in who

 we’re becoming!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
