“And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times.” (Holy Bible, Psalm 12:6).
Anniversary 7 – Serving Heaven
By – Charles B. Mayes
IN 2008 SOME HARD CIRCUMSTANCES opened my eyes to my total dependence on God. From this emerged my ministry of writing Christian poetry readings seriously and frequently.
“I do enjoy the poems and they do always point to Jesus.” Anonymous
THROUGH THE YEARS as I’ve been on the website, I also distributed printed readings through churches and the LifeWay Christian Store community center.
“Love your poetry writing! So complimentary in the common faith!” Chanel B., DE.
I WANT TO THANK all my email and WordPress followers, LinkedIn readers, and visitors to my website for your continued support.
ALSO THANKS to my sisters, Nancy and Cherry, and Pastor P.T. Mammen for their encouragement from the beginning. I appreciate the excellent editing of my wife, Dolores. I thank my nephew, William, for helping greatly with the domain.
LORD WILLING, I want to continue to minister through these poetry readings.
“You keep writing, I’ll keep reading!” Steven C., San Jose, CA.
