My Neighbor's Bible

 

my neighbor’s bible is here to be read
ready and willing to share the Daily Bread

my neighbor’s bible is an open book
reflecting The Light if one will only look

my neighbor’s bible is a friend indeed
eager to serve and help others in need

my neighbor’s bible isn’t young
someone’s hero quite unsung

my neighbor’s bible has a strong spine
rough around the edges, but works just fine

my neighbor’s bible is precious in God’s sight
available both day and night

my neighbor’s bible is here for all to see
this bible of which I speak is me

Acts 1:8
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
