He was just another young man
Who came through the church house door -
Nothing special to look at -
Just a nobody to ignore.
But lucky for him, these Christians
Were the exception to the rule.
They opened their arms and hearts,
Realizing he might be a jewel.
This young man - a bit of a loner -
Didn't fit in with the crowd.
But he prayed from his heart to God,
And he always sang joyfully proud.
He could quote a good bit of the Bible.
He made good comments in class.
He was usually smiling and friendly,
Leaving afterwards, sometimes the last.
He often wore a T-shirt and jeans,
Even when he made a 'talk' at times.
But God doesn't look on outward appearance;
God looks at what's inside.
One Sunday, he wore a suit and a tie,
Spoke clearly, stood straight as a rod.
But off-beat, this young preacher wore sneakers -
Still ... he preached the Word of God.

To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!
- I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!
