Good News Through Poems
On February 17, 1965, at Fort Hood, Texas, Claude and Glenda Carson became the proud parents of their third child. Raised in the small town of Killeen, I grew up probably like an average child would, nothing real spectacular, just a plain and simple Christian upbringing. And so, in January of 1985, as a plain and simple young man, I asked God to tell me His will for my life. I asked God to make sure he told me plain and simple to ensure there would be no misunderstanding. God led me to Jeremiah 1:4-10 and Acts 1:8. Now as I strive to live my life in accordance to God's will, my way of life is still the same, plain and simple. I'm not a scholar with 6 or 7 degrees or a literary genius, but I use the wisdom and gifts God has given me along with some life experiences to spread God's message the best way I know how, plain and simple. I pray these poems encourage and bless you in your life's journey.
