“On Easter Sunday 2007, I wrote my first poem. Rather, I should say, God wrote it for me. I recall that while in church facing the beautiful decorated altar of lilies, I was inspired and compelled to write about this exquisite scene. Since then, I have written quite a lot of poems. The enclosed poems convey a variety of settings, personalities, and landscapes. They vary in thought, but underlying all is a spiritual nature. I’ve entitled them “Expressions from His Heart”, because that’s what they represent. His Heart refers to Almighty God, who inspired them. Literally, as Mother Teresa humbly said about her works, “I was the pen, but God wrote the words.” This has direct application to me as well. I hope you find them as inspiring as I did when I penned them.”
