Jesus Open My Eyes and Heart, #94

94, 10-4, SHOW NOTES & COPYRIGHTS, (Scheduled 3/9/2023)

Today, we will be reading and discussing 4 consecutive poems from God’s Rhyme. They are found on pages 5 through 11. My journey to salvation may sound unusual to some. I first had the desire to know Jesus and understand His love for me through the love Father Larry Dunn shared. I have shared before, I was raised In the Episcopal Church, was married in the Catholic Church and later converted to Catholicism, and many years later was led by God to leave the Catholic Church and am now attending an Evangelical, bible believing, teaching and professing church. The following poems are 4 of the first Christian poems I wrote in the later 1970’s.



When we started going to Guadalupe we had a two year old son. Then a daughter, and another, and another, and two more. I wrote a book for one Christmas for the kids, a fictional biography. At one point I wrote about the discussion between a priest and myself occurring in the hospital hallway as my wife was wheeled toward the delivery room. The imaginary priest was telling me that before number 4 or was it 5 I had to convert before the baby could be delivered. After all it is Catholic families that have alot of kids.
When I finally experienced the joy of Jesus, everything was right.

One thing I noted at this time in my life occurred at work. I worked outside, surveying. I noticed the sky was bluer, the clouds whiter and the air clearer. All around me, nature was at peace and beautifully so.



During a second Marriage Encounter weekend I remember sitting in the auditorium of an old convent surrounded by other couples when suddenly I felt a peace within my body that I had never experienced before. After that weekend the sky was bluer, the air clearer, the snow whiter, life absolutely enjoyable.

As we come to the end of today’s podcast, let us pray.
And this week may we remember the words from 2 Corinthians, 12:9;
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,
my power is perfect in weakness.”
At the beginning and at the end
And every moment in between,
May our strength be for His strength
So His perfection may be seen.
(from God Still Rhymes, Concluding Prayer)
