I Have A Packsack

I've Got A Packsack

I've got a packsack that is full of faith
That I've been carry around with me
But It really hasn't been to heavy to carry
Filled with stories of my faith's history
I like to fetch one every time or two
And to share what God has done
My faith in Christ has been a wonderful journey
And I like to share it with everyone

Boy watch out when I get to telling stories
For they all seem to really connect
You start telling one then it leads to another
I guess that's just faith's effect
I frequently apologize whenever I leave a home
After all my faith stories are through
And usually the line that I always leave them with
Is  ....the next time I'll listen to you

Hey! having saving faith is a lot of fun
After all... knowing the Lord brings joy
And having a relief from sin's old prison
Is more precious than any medals alloy
Telling the stories of Jesus Christ
Just brings to my soul pure delight
It's  like walking out of a realm of darkness
And into God's glorious light!

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
