I've Worked With

I've Worked With

I've worked with some amazing people
And God has blessed them so
They can visualize the end result
Of a project on the go
Me I have my limitations
I wasn't blessed like that
And I'm not jealous of them either
And that's an honest fact

I'm just as pleased as they are
At the end result
The reward of their imagination
Good as all get out
I've tried to help them sometimes
By offering my two bits
But no they were none accepting
They would have none of it

You see they were master craftsmen
I in the learner stage
They had done so many projects
To them my suggestions seemed pure outrage
So I learned to keep my silence
And watch each project unfold
And to be an obedient helper
Doing just as I was told

Sometimes we think we know it all
When we really know so little
And life has its learning lessons
Which we're wise not to belittle
So bunker down in learning mode
You'!ll be the wiser faster
Humble yourself in the sight of God
And seek to know the Master!

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
