What a beautiful legacy your father has left for you!
I am touched by this precious young boy, and the way you shared his testimony; it works so well in verse! The Kingdom of God consists of such as these...

No tells a story like a loving parent. And the story lives on in the heart and on the lips of those they loved. Excellent story laced with smooth rhythm and rhyme. Well done!

What a wonderful example of the joy we experience in not only asking Jesus into your life, but in realizing that you can be a part of that same thing happening in someone else's life. I loved the poem itself. Great pace, and your selection of phrases and words painted such a perfect picture.

Wonderful, this is a touching poem that makes you think about Jesus love for the children. It flows beautifully. Well done!
Such a precious retelling. I hung on every word. You captured the sweetness of a baby-heart, really innocent in the big scheme of things but already burdened enough to turn. As a Sunday School teacher, this is a very real moment for me. I can see it... "just a boy" is just an opportunity to make that turn in the crucial direction. Reading this I thought "from the mouths of babes". Lovely.

You are blessed to have such a heartfelt legacy recorded in your fathers own voice. You have written your BEAUTIFUL retelling in such a flowing poetic form. I'm sure that it will carry his legacy on for years to come. Bless you for sharing it with us.

Beautiful Edy, just beautiful! I can't believe I missed all these stories of yours when I read at least 60 or 70 every week! I'm going to "track" you from now on...so I won't miss these gems! Great story, and so touching that you have it on tape. Thanks for the read! Loved it!
