KINDRED SPIRIT


 


To find a kindred spirit


Is to find a hidden treasure


As iron sharpens iron as friend unto friend


Is a gift beyond all measure


 


That bond that's knit in love


True respect and admiration


To be on the same plane in thought and deed


Gives a sense of deep satisfaction


 


How often does that happen


When there are such similarities


Thank you Lord, for sending this one


A fulfilling of one of my needs


 


A frIend, loveth at all times


They see the need in advance


They are there in all of your trials


And in every circumstance


 


In a conscious deliberation


Of a commitment unto the end


Is the wonder and the blessing of


A never failing friend.

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
