    Here we are

    In this galaxy
    within a solar system
    dwelling on Planet Earth
    on the North American continent
    inside the United States of America
    holding strong in the state of Maryland
    deep within the city of Baltimore
    on the west side of downtown
    in the middle of the street
    in a small little house
    in front of a computer
    on the Internet

    for you

    rest a pen that seek to know how
    one so insignificant in the scope of things
    can change the world around me.

    I often wonder how the words I write
    That come from the pen I hold
    Laid safely on the pages before me
    Can be released into a process of change
    Touching lives all around me and
    I don’t even know their names but I see
    That all the things I do will begin

    Placed in God’s hands
    Who took a moment out of time
    To see about me…

    from there to...

    a state called colorado
    a city called colorado springs
    on the north side of downtown
    stood a company called intel

    in a cubicle
    in front of a computer screen
    sat an employee named baller

    your words reached out and touched me.

    THANKS dnommo.

    One.

    You showed forth
    The wonders
    Of the God
    Who thunders.

    You showed forth
    His signs
    Thru the pen
    Of poetic design.

    We will always appreciate
    The humble work you've done,
    In showing forth the tenderness
    Of God's loving Son.

    May God bless you
    In the righteous things
    You do.

    May the Son shine
    Brightly on the dreams
    That you persue.

    I do love

    the way you bring everything into focus...from the vast regions of the infinite...to the smallest element(s) of the finite...and how God uses His willing instruments to bless His people all over the world.

    Feelin you this morning, D-Mo. Thank you

    yes...
    what may not mean much to one
    can be so significant to many...
    this is why you should not leave...
