I hope and pray that these poems will inspire, encourage, motivate, comfort and draw you closer to our Lord and Savior "Jesus Christ." Who has been, and continues to be my constant source of strength, spiritual inspiration and comfort everyday I began writing this book in 2003, I had just surrendered my life to God, after undergoing back surgery in 12/2002 that was a pivotal point in my life. Before my surgery I had promised God that if he brought me through the surgery successfully I would come back to church. After my baptism in the spring of 2003, I began writing out of gratitude and thankfulness for what God had done in my life. A good portion of this book was inspired by the experiences that I've had, as God protected, led and inspired me every step of the way back to the foot of the cross. George L. Lashley, was born in Pembroke, Bermuda. His ability to write was discovered when he was asked to write an essay for a 3rd grade class home work assignment. When the essay was ready by the teacher, she immediately took it to the Principal who insisted that he read it in front of the entire school assembly. That experience was somewhat embarrassing to him not being used to so much attention. He continued to write but in a more subdued and secretive fashion. It was only after he began writing poetry of a spiritually uplifting nature, and began reading them during church services and other suitable occasion, did he, through the encouragement of others decide to attempt to publish any of his work.
