Poem by my son Matt

It was

for me

he died

I'm free

now by His grace I live

but not for me; forgiven

of sins

new life


with he

who died

and gave

His life

for me.

Matt - Soli Deo Gloria

Matt wrote this poem when he was about 16, and printed a copy. It hung on the wall of his bedroom for years. Then, he grew up, moved away, and got married. The poem still hung there.

Now Daniel, 17, treasures the poem. I brought the paper downstairs and typed out a copy, just because it was getting ratty and I didn't want to lose it. Daniel said, "But that's MINE. it's been on my wall forever!"

Funny how a simple little poem has become a treasure.
