I Love To Open

I love to open the blinds
To let the sunshine in
To look out at the weather factor
As to how my day will begin
Somehow every thing seems better
When the sun comes shining our way
I find it even so in the marketplace 
In the greetings of each day

People always seem more cheerful
When the sun comes shining through
The grass it seems more greener
The sky it seems more blue
I think it's God's way of telling us
His Son-shine is needed as well
If we continue to walk in spiritual darkness
We most certainly will wind up
in hell

So pull up the blinds my brother
And let the Sonlight  in
Don't continue on as you are
Living a life of sin
There's a life that's far above and beyond
It's a life of eternity
Now is just the right time and right place
To look to the Lord and see!

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
