Character builds slowly, but it can be torn down within incredible swiftness.
Faith Baldwin


Sometimes I pray to my Father who art in Heaven
How is it you allow this trouble come to afflict me?
However when I look back I see this anguish was caused by no one but me
Then I ask my Heavenly Father why did you not send me fair warning?
That is when you give to me counsel, counsel that already been sent
“It was your own decision” said he, “as too which way it would be that you went”
It is frustrating to me when it seems I can’t hear Gods majestic voice
On the other side it is more annoying to know he spoke but I ignored by choice
It is times like this when a reawakening must then take place
It is then that I close my eyes and pray for I cannot look God in the face
“Dear Heavenly Father,” I then bough and pray
“I am old and hard of hearing”
I hear your voice often yet much to my frustration I do not hear what it is you say”
“Like a patient father you are kind and generous and most of all forbearing”
“How wearisome it must be watch and know when I will not obey
“How wonderful is the love that forgives and leads me back to the trail that leads to Heaven’s gate”
“How glorious it will be when you lead me through and I stand on the other side”
“It will be there on Heavens shore where I spend forever and gratefully I will abide”

I DIDN'T KNOW...JUST FOUND OUT TODAY. I WAS VISITING LENA JONES' DEN AND SHE HAS A TRIBUTE TO LEW POSTED. I HAVE VISITED HIS DEN FROM TIME TO TIME AND ALWAYS CAME AWAY TOUCHED BY HIS WORK. HIS FAITH AND LOVE OF GOD WAS SO EVIDENT. OF COURSE, HE IS RESTING IN PEACE - SAFE, IN OUR SAVIOR'S ARMS. I AM GLAD TO HAVE KNOWN HIM IN THE CAPACITY THAT I DID ON THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN AND KNOW THAT ONE DAY WE WILL MEET AGAIN, FACE TO FACE...ON THE OTHER SIDE. MY CONDOLENCES TO ALL HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND I PRAY THAT THE COMPASSION AND STRENGTH OF JESUS ATTENDS THEM AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

What beautiful poetry and prayer Lew delivers here..

It is with great sadness to learn that such a kind and sincere gentleman writer among us has passed beyond this world.. Lew will be sorely missed.

Yet, those of us who are of like faith, are comforted by the knowledge that St. Paul taughts us, 'to be absent from the body.. is to be present with the LORD'. For it is our spirit-man/woman/child who exists eternally!

One day we shall see Lew again.. until then, may his wife and family and loved ones know the comfort and consolation of Christ through the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Love, Rhonda
