WE HAVE THESE MOMENTS TO SHARE “THANKS TO CALVARY”

My life is written in my poems it’s there for all to see,
But some may wonder why it is, I start at Calvary.

Will mom and dad were teenagers in small town USA.
Is the one you love, living for the Lord?
Was the question of their day.

All we want to know,
Is not what do they have, but do they love the Lord?
For a marriage without Jesus could never be of one accord.

So now you know, that everything, my parents ever had,
Was all because; Jesus gave His Life for mom and dad.

Their children, and their ministry was “Thanks To Calvary”
For they started There Together, sinners who had been set free.

He preached, they played and sang the songs,
that would later touch my heart.
So now you see at Calvary was where I got my start.

“I Started Going To Church 9 Months Before I Was Ever Born.”
Where I sat with "Dear O’Momma" every Sunday morn.

But it wasn’t until, I could truly say: “I am tired of being me,”
Down on my knees, in the county jail, that I met the Christ of Calvary.

Now it’s “I’ve been forgiven is my one claim to fame”
For God gave me His Mercy and His Son took my shame.

Yes my life’s in my poems, each a special memory.
How God’s touched this old sinner “Thanks To Calvary”
And even as I finish, I’d like you to see.
We Had These Moments To Share “Thanks To Calvary”
