Testimony of saving faith for Christians only
I attended parochial elementary school, was an altar boy for 7 years, spent a lot of time at, in, and around the church. I can't pick out one day when I asked Jesus to enter into my heart, but there have been many days of asking Him in, putting Him out, and letting Him back in again. Fortunately, when one opens the door for Him, He is there and willing. When He enters, love and peace enter with Him. So, as I mature, I cling to Him more. My bit of testimony is to express that part of Him in me through poetry and prayer for those in need.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.

Moving Mountains

I'm moving mountains, one by one-

no obstacles too big for me;

I'm casting them into the sea;

He gives me strength each day begun.


My faith is in the living Son,

who beckons from eternity;

I'm moving mountains one by one-

no obstacles too big for me.


In onward pace, with each day done,

I shall proclaim from lee to lee

that with the Lord, there's victory!

My strength is in the Living Son!

I'm moving mountains one by one.


Matthew 21:21...And Jesus answered them, "Truly, I say to you, if you have faith

and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but

even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea', it will

be done."
