God Has a Planby Erwin Parent
I was a student of the Bible from an early age. I was always fascinated by the stories from both the Old and New Testaments and always tried to apply the lessons learned to my own life.
After spending years as a Sunday School Teacher, the Bible stories have stayed with me. I read the Bible every day; it has helped me enormously over the years.
I am not ashamed to admit, that I prayed to God each time to send me a wonderful wife. I was never disappointed and will continue to communicate with Him on a regular basis.
The inspiration for the poetry comes from many sources. A thought while driving or a thought that comes while watching something on television. In one case it was an incident that inspired me. I will on occasion place at the bottom of the poem, what it was that inspired the poem.
This book of poems will be in three sections.
• Poems of inspiration from my faith whatever the source
• Poems from Bible references or from Bible Stories
• Poems from my own personal life. Those produced from my own experiences that lifted me from my pit of despair or helped me to understand better God’s love and inspiration
