I am retired from the Michigan State Police, after 27 years of service and living all over this great state. I have settled in Northwest Michigan and love it. I have always loved writing poetry and God always provides inspriration. The unexpected loss (by stroke)of Terri, my loving wife of 26 years,in 2003, has led me to writing deeper inspirational poetry. God's grace supplies me with strength to carry on. Hopefully my writing can touch others in a positive way for Christ.
