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 hereó

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!
