"God Bless My Horse", the title poem of my book, is a poem that tells how God has blessed this man's horse and by blessing his horse, has blessed the man's entire life, and all the stupid, crazy things he (and I) have ever done. While reading this book, you will see that, not only this poem, but the whole book actually tells the stories from the view of a young man during his developing spiritual journey through life, to an older man, who thrives on his relationship with GOD. Throughout it all, God has always been there! In this book, a lifetime of thoughts, humor, and emotions are written in poetry, with a distinct West Texas flavor, including the unique dialog and colloquialisms of the people of the area. Many of the poems are of the old west, telling tales of cowboys, Native Americans, and horses. Others talk about my working experiences as a lineman and with the oilfields. All the poems are stories of my life experiences and how I talked to God throughout these experiences. Throughout the book is the expression of my strong Christian faith and love for the one true God. It is my expressed wish that anyone who reads this book will not only enjoy the book, but that they will also receive the good news of God's love and grace provided by his son, Jesus.
