THE DEACON'S IN THE HOUSE !!

THE DEACON’S IN THE HOUSE !

There is a fine man in NetHugs,
Deacon Steve is his posting name.
I’ve known him since I got the bug,
To join the NetHugs gang.

You cannot find a more caring soul,
He is there for all who need.
With his lovely poems, it’s his goal,
To plant God’s loving seed.

Got a sense of humor, jokes abound,
That make me smile a lot !
It‘s so good to have Deacon Steve around,
He’s the only one we’ve got !

I remember the time he welcomed me,
Still a rookie I was back then.
He made me feel welcome, graciously,
Right away became my friend.

There’s another thing that our Deacon does,
He runs a really cool website.
Open My Eyes Lord, filled with love,
Lots of reading to make you feel right.

He helps many people in special ways,
I am one who’s received his blessing.
‘It comes straight from God‘, is what he says,
Straight to the point, no guessing.

If you have a problem that’s bothering you,
Here’s a man whose arms are open wide.
He’ll listen with care to what makes you blue,
Through his love for Jesus, he‘ll be your guide.

I wanted to write a poem for Steve,
For he shines on us like a beacon.
There’s no one else like him, I do believe,
Thank you, God, for our very own Deacon !

God blesses us because He has blessed you, Stevers !!
Thank you, God, for giving us this man.

:oops: :oops: I am at a loss for words, somewhat. I can't see to type through the tears in my eyes Linda. I am honored that I am thought of this way, but you know my friend, I'm not much on being recognized, except for serving our Lord, just like everyone else. Each one here at Nethugs and beyond is a very special, unique person, who has and shares their gifts, talents, poetry, and most importantly their selfs. I believe that we are all childen of God, and are part of His family. Like all of you, I do what I do, as sinful as I am, because for thing, I am fortunate that I can, and another, it is the right thing to do as Jesus teaches us in scripture. But I am flawed, broken, and sometimes a mess, and most times I feel as if I am the one being ministered too. Thank you Linda for being such an inspiration and part of my life, as are each one here at Nethugs. I am a better person because of each of you, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. God bless and grace each of you.
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

DEAR STEVERS...IF YOU WERE PERFECT, THAT WOULDN'T BE NATURAL. I BELIEVE THAT OUR 'FLAWS', AS YOU CALL THEM, ARE WHAT MAKE US BEAUTIFUL. OF COURSE WE ALL HAVE THEM...WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS. YOU MAKE IT SOUND LIKE YOU ARE SUCH A TERRIBLE SINNER !!! WHAT DID YOU DO, ROB A BANK ?? LOL !! WE ARE ALL BETTER PEOPLE BECAUSE OF OUR CONNECTIONS WITH OTHERS. YOU, HOWEVER, ARE 'DEACON STEVE'. YOU DON'T BECOME A DEACON BY BEING A HORRIBLE PERSON !! NOW, YOU MUST JUST RELAX AND ACCEPT THE FACT THAT WE ALL LOVE YOU, SIR, BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE...YOURSELF JUST AS YOU ARE !! EVERYONE HERE GETS RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR BEAUTY AS A HUMAN BEING AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER...TODAY WAS YOUR TIME FROM ME...AND OBVIOUSLY, OTHERS TOO. YOUR ARE LOVED, STEVE...BECAUSE YOU ARE YOU. ACCEPT THAT AND TAKE A DEEP BREATH...YOU'LL BE JUST FINE, YOU MESSY OLD SINNER, YOU !!!

LOVE ALWAYS, LINNER :D :) :lol: :wink: :wink:

I am honored by such a tribute. Yes, I know that I am not a terrible person, in fact I am a good guy, just ask Joycee and our kids and grandkids. I have to thank my mom and dad for the faith that they shared with me, even when I wanted to refused it. It is good to be amongst so many other friendly, hugging, loving, and also spiritual people who share the same morals and values that I do. And I thank each of you for your kind words, but warn you: this poem will not be made a video, at least not my me. LOL Nethug folks are the greatest, and great big hug to Skip our webmaster for making this website possible, and LL you are a winner in my book, reborn as a Kentuckian, and Brenda has taken great care of you. God bless you both. Later.
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!
