My Wife And I

My wife and I had a real blessing last night
And it came unexpectedly
We went to a friend's to wash and dry clothes
A visit...and a warm cup of tea
We chatted a bit about odds and ends
To bring ourselves up to date
During the course of the evening one of her sons shared
His testimony was just great

He was at a mission's trip to Mexico
With a group of young people from school
They visited an orphanage and an old folks home
Helped build a home which was cool
But the greatest blessing was the revealing of his heart
Which I had not had the privilege to see
The joy as he shared of his blessed time there
Was a blessing to both my wife and me

How that little group who had travelled together
Beforehand none of them had known
That the same questions in life each one faced
Was similar in kind to his own
It brought a new nearness and endearment
To a degree that was not felt before
There were answers to prayer as to how God was blessing
His realness was shown over and over

My spirit as well was blessed by his sharing
It showed me that God was at work
In the heart's of all of these young people
Feeding their hunger and thirst for truth
For all the right reasons I sensed an awakening
They wanted to serve God in love
My soul had satisfaction as the result of their actions
And thankful to God above

There might be a heart living close to you
That so far you have not met
Don't discount its value my friend
God's not finished with it yet
We're still Christian's under construction
A workmanship in Christ are we
Experiencing the love of our heavenly Father
So we may do His ministry!

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
