This being Good Friday, I feel compelled to post a spiritual poem, and express my gratitude to the LORD.. 


Lord, how you’ve blessed me,

in oh, so many ways,

that I am having trouble,

with the counting, these days.

My health, at this moment,

is much more than okay,

and as for my family,

there is so much to say.

You blessed me with parents,

who now, you’ve called home,

but, I carry them with me,

wherever, I roam.

For they planted your seed,

deep in my soul,

and I am today,

still here, in your fold.

With my sister and brothers,

you’ve also me blessed,

there can be none the better,

for you’ve given the best.

And with the mention of best,

there have been two more times,

through my wife and my daughter,

I’ve seen your light shine.

And these are but a few,

of your gifts unto me,

your unworthy servant,

who’s so grateful, to thee.
