True Thanksgiving
True Thanksgiving has the power to transform our lives, as well as our communities. In a day of when rage and envy are driving the outbursts on the internet and in our streets, true thanksgiving would promote peace, joy and unity.

Martin Luther and the Bible
As we near Oct 31, many will celebrate Halloween, but I always think of Martin Luther - for it was on Oct 31, 1517 that he famously nailed the 95 thesis. This poem is about the role the Bible played in the work of Luther and the Reformation.

All Things first in poetry contest
God is still the same. As Scripture says, with God there is no "variableness nor shadow of turning." We may live in a different dispensation, but we serve the same God. Our faith should lay hold of the reality of His presence and power.

Recollection finalist in poetry contest
This is a poem about the sad realization that my grandfather was really gone, but the happy and more powerful realization of where he had gone to. Heaven is real, and we should be comforted by what the Bible says about the hope laid up in heaven.

Life from the Dead
Though we celebrate the Resurrection every week, it seems fitting that a day be set aside each year for special focus. Not only is it fitting to have a day like Easter, it seems fitting that it is in the spring when we see nature returning to life.

Confident and Assured
We can have confidence in the Word of God and the promises He has made to believers. Our confidence is not based on our performance or strength, but solely upon Christ who has won the victory for us.

A Triune Connection finalist in poetry contest
Our prayer involves all three persons of the Blessed Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Specially Designed
In the mystery of pain we stand alone in God's hand. No other case is just like ours. But God's special care for us is in more than able to meet our individual suffering. God cares for us deeply as individuals, and does not deal with us in a generic way.

Reformation Day first in poetry contest
This is a poem about the Reformation. Martin Luther was a man with many faults, but despite these many faults, he still did a mighty work in recovering many wonderful gospel truths, and getting the Bible into the hands of the common people.
