Contagious Love

CONTAGIOUS LOVE


 


You've raised the bar on aging


With your infectious smile


Mother, your love is contagious


You've gone the extra mile.


 


In each of your discomforts


There's hardly ever a fuss


Your way of doing business therewith


Is such an appreciative touch.


 


The fender bender mishaps


Or should I say the floor


Have not broken your spirit


You still bounce back for more.


 


Your humor is not hidden


But lies in wait for a chance


To utter those funny sayings


That suit each circumstance.


 


Once again that smile


With twinkle in your eye


Beams forth satisfaction with


Giving a courteous reply.


 


Your beauty is astounding


For it's both without, within


Your spirit is victorious


For you trust alone in Him.


 


In Him I say Who raised the dead


In Him who gives old age


And then in glory "Eternal life"


May Jesus Christ be praised.


 


All glory to that Father, Son


The Spirit who live above


Who bless our hearts with demonstrations


Of His Contagious Love!

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
