Preface to
Grandpappy's Christian Poems

In the year 2003 during a very peaceful night of sleep I had a short but very vivid dream about heaven. When I woke up all four verses to an entire Christian poem were inside my head. The short poem was based on my very brief dream. I got out of bed, turned on my portable computer, and typed the short poem into a computer file. Then I went about my normal daily activities. The title to that poem is "A Night Dream" and it appears on page 54 in this book.

About two weeks later I was babysitting my granddaughter Olivia. I was sitting in a comfortable chair and keeping a watchful eye on Olivia as she played with her toys in her playpen. While I was watching her play another Christian poem entered my head. I immediately turned on my portable computer and I positioned it on the kitchen table so I could still see Olivia off to the right side of my computer screen. Then I began typing the poem into my computer. As I was typing I began thinking about my future granddaughter, Trinity, who was due to be born in about two weeks. When I finished typing the poem into my computer another poem immediately entered my head and I typed that poem into my computer also. Then I turned off my computer and I devoted the rest of my afternoon to entertaining my granddaughter Olivia.

Two days later I felt the need to write two more poems. I cannot explain why I felt the need to write those two poems but I sat down and gradually drafted both poems based on the thoughts that were in my head. I consulted my Bible and made sure that the verses I had written were in alignment with the Words of God.

From that time forward whenever I felt the need to write a Christian poem I simply sat down and began to write. Most of my thoughts eventually became one of the poems in this book. Every time I wrote a Christian poem I consulted the Holy Bible and I found the appropriate scripture verses that I had based my poem on. I made a note of those scripture verses at the bottom of each poem for reference purposes.

I am not one of those people who claims to be directly inspired by God or by Jesus or by the Holy Spirit. However, I do believe that we all receive inspiration from God as we need it. But I do not claim that the poems in this book are spiritually inspired. The poems in this book are nothing more than the words of an old man and they should not be interpreted as being anything more than that.

Respectfully,
Grandpappy
