Everybody knows me JOE
Today was an errand day. I went to a place I normally do not go; and there while I was waiting for the attendants to finish changing my oil and washing my car, I met a man who said to me "How do you get your shoes to shine so well". I said you know I get something at that store we all go to, and I proceeded to tell him what I get and how to obtain it if he would like. He was so gracious; and in the conversation that ensued, he told me that tomorrow he will be 80 years of age and that he is going to the local newspaper and get them to write something about him, but he did not know what to write. At that moment, I felt the tug of God to tell the man that I would write him a poem that he could take when he goes. He was appreciative, and in about five minutes he had his poem. He was very appreciative, but he truly did not receive, I am sure, the great feeling which I was blessed to receive. I was so very thankful to God that He would use me to comfort this man and share Our Heavenly Father's love with this special soul. I will always remember the SHINE on this man's face for a simple act of kindness. It certainly was nothing of me -- it truly was God loving and simply using me as an instrument. I thank God for considering me worthy enough to be used as a vessel of blessing. I received so much from this man because I saw such a special shine that exuded from his heart all over his face.
What I wrote is a poem entitled "Everybody knows me...JOE" and a few comments after the poem as you see here...May it bless each one who reads it, and may you share the SHINE of this man's soul, as I was blessed to share...
Everybody knows me...JOE
Everybody knows me
But they may not know
The secret that
I carry within
This heart of mine --
You see there
Is a secret
That I keep
Deep within my heart
I do SHINE...
The reason is that
GOD'S BEEN GOOD
TO ME --
And in that very
It is truly
(Joe's heart-thoughts from my perspective...)
I love the Lord
In the 80 years
I have spent upon
This earth --
I give Him
ALL the glory
For the very
Presence I do
Share since my day
This was a joyful day for the Sunshine of the Soul spread its light for others to see...
