A God given Grandpa

When I was born I was given four grandparents but there is another kind,
There are people that God brings into our life that are unique and rare:
I know you had seven children but you make many feel like number eight in mind,
For your warmth to all is shown by the many acts of goodness that you share.

I think of the ways in which you came to salvation in Jesus who is best,
The years that you gave to freedom for our country as a medic in the war:
Our Lord revealing His Word (1Tim.2:5) to you and the priest you did test,
The long isle you walked at Jarvis Street (Baptist Church) which many are 
thankful for.

In this life you have had many struggles but have always “bounced” back,
From strokes to folks and many other “outer and inner” pain:
During all these ultimately spiritual challenges Jehovah-Jireh has been there in 
the attack,
Waiting to shove it all in the devil’s face that no matter what he did there was no 

At this time Grampa I say unto you Shalom (peace) be still,
Many are praying for you and in this you have been an example to us all:
For we know all things work together for “good” according to His will,
And with much intercessory through Holy Spirit power you cannot fall!!!

Grampa we are lookin’ for the Blessed Hope and the soon coming Rapture,
Souls are in danger and many still need to know that there is a hell to be shun:
Cause bondage runs deep and many are under satan’s power and capture,
For no man knows the day nor the hour in which He will come.

To Grampa with love from one of your many proud “grand-children”

Remember these words for with them have you comforted us all!!! (Mat.11:25-30)
