    To know me is to know Him
    For I am one of His children
    And you know they say the apple
    don't fall far from the tree
    Hear me and hear me clearly.

    I was born full of sin
    But His only Son died for me
    So that I might live life
    freely and more abundantly.

    I am in Him and He is in me
    He feeds me, clothes me, shelters me
    There's no one else I'd rather be
    Than a child of the King---directly.
    By my fruits, know me . . .:angel1:

    its not often that someone expresses their beliefs so outright
    and boldly. I can appreciate the courage that this poem testifies to.
    May our Lord continue to bless you with creativity and penmanship.
