As Promised in the last blog, here is another poem from my book I just submitted to be published .  Enjoy!

I love to wake up on the mountain top
And breathe in that crisp fresh mountain air
Basking in the warmth of the bright sunshine
While breathing out a prayer

From a faraway distance
I see a dark cloud beginning to near
And suddenly without warning
My heart becomes paralyzed with fear

Wash me in Your grace again
Please protect me from the pain
But even if I go thru it
I know it will be for my gain
Because a soul can never grow
Without some time in the rain

I don’t know if I can handle this
With the lightning aimed right for my soul
But little-by-little
Your peace begins to speak to me
As the thunder begins to roll

As the wind starts to blow around me
And the rain begins to hit my face
Your grace like a warm blanket surrounds me
And it gives me the strength
To stand tall in this place


  1. your poems always flow so effortlessly! How long did it take you to write this one? Since I'm on bed rest, I might try writing a few things but they might be silly hahaha. But I love these previews that you are giving us. It only makes it more exciting to wait for your entire book!

  2. WOW! My favorite line is "a soul cannot grow without some time in the rain"! I just told that to my dad and he goes "You got that from Jerry's poem" he remembers because he wrote your poem down in his notebook and he looks at it everyday! This is very encouraging! I love your use of words. It really allows you to feel God's presence and appreciate it in many ways! Thank you for sharing!
