September 22, 2000 - April 28, 2016




he may have feared

the result

other than that desired

dreaded the words of his peers

or his superiors

he may have hesitated

at the brink of



he may have had his doubts

of these we are not told

but of his faith we hear

and that he did come

to the feet of Christ

and beg his daughters life


nor are we told

of his joy

after Jesus woke her from death

as easily as a parent would

from a nap



After seeing it “acted” in

The Miracle Maker, wow!
