I Can Think Of A Time…



I can think of a time, when I was young.

I was growing up and having fun!

I remember how excited I was to have a t.v.

There were my brothers, my parents and me!

I remember at about the age of ten.

My dad thought going to the theater was a “sin.”

There were many things

that as young man…

 I later began to see, and understand!

My parents shared God’s love the best they could!

And I read the Bible and was trying to be “good.”

I had my troubles…  And problems bear...

But I had a family, and much prayer!

The truth of God’s word helped sustain me!

I knew how much he really loved me!

My parents, may seem like they were “old fashioned.”

They loved their kids!  With a Godly compassion!

I’m thankful to be blessed with a Godly love!

My family was a treasure from heaven above!

I think about today, and how things go wrong.

Many families don’t seem to “get along!”

I pray for the blessing of God, to bind them together!

May we all serve him!  Today, and forever!

His love must be the cord that binds!

His will must be the focus of our minds!

May the presence of God bind us as one!

Every mother, father, daughter and son!

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!
