To My Friend Dave…


I believe in the God you once believed in.

He sent his son and I have received him!


I’ve found all that I need in Jesus’ name.

He removed all of sin’s dark stains.


I remember the times you spoke of him.

The many times you said you loved him.


You spoke of him and sang of him as well.

It was a choice of going to heaven or hell.


The God you spoke of, I know him too!

Christ came in and made me brand new!


You were a godly friend that was hard to find.

For Jesus and me, you took the time!


In you, I once was very happy to see.

Seeing you walk in his love abundantly!


The word of God has spoken deep within.

It teaches what is right and what is sin.


It brings correction when I really need it.

The word of God.,,,  I love to read it!


Living for Christ is what I chose to do!

I made my choice!  What about YOU???

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
