The Greatest Poet

      Comments Off on The Greatest Poet

I would love to write a story,
Of life that never dies.
Of love that’s never ending,
That soars above the skies.

Oh to be the one,
Who wrote the happiest song.
Of love that’s never ending.
Of love that’s never wrong.

Men can write a poem or rhyme,
But none could ever tell;
How life goes on forever;
In Heaven or in Hell.

But God gave us the Bible,
To learn of His great plan,
Of a love that’s never ending,
When He sent the Son of Man.

The poems in the Bible,
Are there for all to read.
The lessons taught and learned;
The Best Poet we must heed.

So while I did not write the words;
I’ll carry them within my heart
Then tell of He who wrote the words,
And The Word He did impart.

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions,
We make them everyday,
In how we choose to live,
In every single way.

You may not believe, He’s the Greatest Poet,
But in the end you will agree,
For every knee will bow and tongue confess
As we face: Eternity.

After allowing the concrete to cure for about ten days, I started working on framing the girts. I’m using commercial / bookshelf girts, which are 2×8 boards laid flat, 24″ on center. They look like bookshelves, thus the name, and allow for easy addition of horizontal batt insulation in the walls. Wall sections that are < 24″ wide, or thereabouts, use standard ‘barn style’ girts.
