Grace...Our Shock Absorber

Grace...Our Shock Absorber 

God knows how life can turn
It has its ups and downs
Sometimes with smiles and jovialness 
At other times its frowns
From the time of our first birthing 
To the time of our very last breath
God gives us grace as a shock absorber 
In our most needed time of death

We are weakened vessels 
Dependent on the Lord
We can only bear so much
That's why we need His Word
For there the record still it stands
Christ is the Resurrection
And all those who have trusted Him
Are headed in Heaven's direction

I've been shocked a few times
And death has taken its toll
But God's supply of grace absorbed
The pain within my soul
And praise became a permanent
For we shall rise again
And meet our loved ones in the sky
Where our lives shall never end!

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
