I Started To Write A Card

I Started To Write A Card

I started to write a card
But it took me sixty-six books
Just to say I love you
Yes...that's how many it really took
Thirty-nine in the old testament
And twenty-seven in the new
All interwoven together by the Spirit
Just to say I love you

But I still topped that off in grace
When I sent you my own dear Son
To exemplify my love for you
That's exactly what I've done
Your walk in darkness needed rectifying 
I sent you the purest of Light
Who would deliver you from your sin
And from your darkest night

One little card would not suffice
So I thought again and took another look
Then I determined I had so much love for you
That I had to write a Book
It is reverenced by those who know me
Who've found that love is the way
The love of God in Jesus Christ
Is the true love I've sent your way

I trust this finds your acceptance 
I couldn't think of any better thing to do
For Jesus Christ is my Crowning glory
And I know that He loves you too
With my whole heart have I sought thee
Remember...I'm the God of love
I have sent you a Saviour as my shower of blessing
To show you the power of love!!!

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
