All This And Heaven Too

God made the World in just six days,

And took one off to rest.

He blessed it with some solar rays,

To warm the first bird's nest.

God chose to give the world He made

To man, made from the grounds;

With just one rule: Don't eat that fruit

From one tree out of bounds.

The man and woman broke the rules,

And poisoned paradise;

And had to work the land with tools,

Which made life not as nice.

Through centuries, the populations

Would break God's every law,

And then complain of tribulations;

Blaming God, what's more.

God could have left us to our fates,

Cut off from His good will.

Instead, adopting human traits,

He took a bitter pill.

Born in the world as Jesus Christ,

He lived without a flaw;

Then died, with pain, to pay the price

For all past sins and more.

This leaves us with a choice to make;

But we need to respond.

Do we accept God's gift, and take

His ticket to beyond?

God's help on earth, and heaven too

Are all part of the prize

We'll win, if we let God come through,

To open all our eyes.

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

Wilbur Jasin: I liked the book. The story is great. The author really did some quite research to come up with something like this. The book needs some editing but otherwise, it's a great read. Can't wait for the second book.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now.
