The Story of Our Lives
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



We are writing the story of our lives

Although we may not know it

The things we do  - the words we say

Are tell tale signs that show it.


We all are authors, unbeknowing to some

And our Editor's simply the best

Who judges each thought and intent of the heart

He can do nothing less!


He works without pay and never rests

And when the project is through

Not one error will ever be found

When it's pages are scrutinized too.


The witnesses listening and watching as well

As your Book is being read

Sealing the fact of your authorship

By every word you have said.


Not one shall stand with britches thumbed

And say, "Yes", "This Book is mine!"

But will be on their knees, begging for grace

From the Chief Editor, Who is Divine!


So carefully think and measure your words

In fact, He says, "Let them be few!"

And the intents of your heart?  Let Purity reign!

Make your Editor proud of you!

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
