I'm Jealous Of Those Who Journal

I'm jealous of those who journal
Who have a point of reference on file
It we ever have a race to find some stuff
They'd beat me by a country mile
I have some in my family
That God has blessed as such
If we ever need information about anything
Their journaling helps out so much

Me...I'm used to disorganization
I just put things everywhere
And all of a sudden when I need it
I can't find it anywhere
Long time ago I had shock treatments
It was quite a shock to me
I think it short circuited some of my brain waves
Which have turned into an ocean or sea

But I'm still living in the present
Really nothing here is going to last
Who cares if I forget a thing or two
In my land of forgetfulness 
But no! I don't dare to knock journaling 
That's the very point of this poem
Because if I ever forget something or someone
I'll call family and they will know them!

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
