Thanks For the Handshake...


 


Thanks for taking time


to shake my hand.


I know you don't really


know who I am.


 


I spoke with you and gave


you my name.


It was to this Church that


we both came.


 


Reaching out, as your arm


was extended.


Perhaps someday,


I'll be befriended.


 


I'm a sinner that's why I'm here.


I hope your love for


me is sincere.


 


After the service, as you walk out...


Will you remember what the


handshake was about?


 


Next time, may we spend


more time together.


In heaven, we'll enjoy God's


saints forever.


 


May our conversations be filled


with God's grace.


Knowing Christ has brought us here—


in one place.


 


Exalting Jesus in all


we say and do.


For I love him...


AND appreciate 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!
