No T.V. for 40 years?


I met this person…  And could hardly believe my ears…

He hasn’t watched public

 television in over 40 years!


How could someone not

watch this for so long?

Is everything o.k. with him?  Is anything “wrong?”


Allow me to put any uncertainties

or questions to rest.

He is doing quite well,and feels rather blessed!


He  hasn’t looked to television to entertain.

But is very happy.. 

No reason to complain…


I know that he loves Jesus

with a passion and zeal…

God is in his heart.  He knows his God is REAL!


He has a dedication for Christ

and the Holy Ghost.

He seeks in life what really matters the most…


He has a wife and several children as well…

They’re seeking God’s love.  You can TELL!


It’s the “simple things in life”

 they’ve learned to enjoy…

A contentment in life is what

they wish to employ…


What takes our time from Jesus

 we may one day regret.

That which Christ has done for us…

 May we not forget!


May we all be encouraged to live for God. 

Whatever the cost…

And perhaps get our focus back

 on the “old rugged cross…”

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!
