My father, Joe B. Chapman, was shuffled from town to town during his childhood as his father followed work on the pipeline. He saw many places and met many people. Texas A&M was the college of his choice and where he earned a degree in Industrial Engineering. His education enabled him to pursue a career which enabled him to see what was once considered the far and exotic reaches of the earth. Not only did my father obtain the knowledge found in books, but he saw the mysteries of other cultures. By human standards, you could say that my dad, although not of noble birth, was influential in his field and has great wisdom. (I Corinthians 1:25-31) these verses teach us, the foolish things of the world can confound the wise. Daddy understands this truth and he has kept his eyes on the Lord and trusted in the Lord's wisdom and guidance throughout his life. When he tells stories of his travels in the past, he does not boast of the things he has seen or done, but he boasts of what the Lord has allowed him to see and experience as well as the protection He has afforded my dad. By God's standards, my dad is of noble birth. He is covered in the righteousness of Jesus, which makes him a joint heir in all that God has and loves to give to His children. What my dad wants you to know, and tells you through his poetry is that you too can be a child of The King. You can be redeemed and sanctified by God and you too can boast in the Lord. Written by Pamela Chapman Barrett. (Joe's Daughter)
