My Dad’s Heavenly Birthday

Monday marked my Dad’s 10th heavenly birthday

It’s hard to believe it’s been a decade since he passed away


From his existence on Earth, in a nursing home bed

At the funeral my eyes didn’t turn red


Oh I missed him and still do, but I am just so certain

For him it wasn’t the final curtain


A God fearing man who didn’t just talk about faith and doing what’s right

He was a terrific role model of a Christian, a Bible warrior, oh we’d still fight


But I never, ever heard him take the Lord’s name in vain

Oh he did swear, but God’s name he wouldn’t stain


He would provide a free motel room to someone homeless or down on their luck

The Bible remember tells us to befriend a stranger who in life might be stuck


The stories of Christian love are too many to list here

He also taught us to have a healthy fear


Of the devil and what evil he can master

We are too quick to blame God when there is a disaster


I think of my Dad and Mom nearly every day

I’m pretty certain for them it was the same way


They just didn’t talk about it or write a poem

As through this life they did roam


Happy 10th Heavenly Birthday Dad I do miss you much

Our Biblical discussions my heart did touch


I’m a bit lost spiritually without those I must say

But I do thank you for showing me the way


Now, I don’t know why but whenever I see the moon at night

I think of you, in heaven and it’s outta sight


I’m sure Mom is there too and your brother and sister

Your Mom and Dad and I don’t think you play twister


I’ll bet church in heaven is as good as church can be

No sad songs there, praising God with glee


No tears, no cancer, other diseases, or death at all

No devil to try and make you from heavenly grace fall


Just total elation, no expectation, just being

I can’t even imagine the glories you are seeing

This might be my parents wedding photo because we have never seen one and I know Dad came to work one day and told Mom they would go to a church and get married.  S...

Burkhartzmeyers Shoes Sign

Burkhartzmeyers Is More Than A Shoe Store

Feet are Burkhartzmeyers Specialty


I’m very honored to have Burkhartzmeyer Shoes sponsor my posts

I’ll do my best to make them respectful and not roasts


For you see it was Al Burkhartzmeyer, who many years ago

Made me feel welcome shortly after arriving in Faribault


I was simply walking down Central Avenue one summer day

When Al walked up to me and with that smile of his did say


I enjoy listening to your news in the morning keep up the good job

That was in 1987 and I’ve never forgotten, see it didn’t take a mob


Just one person’s kindness is remembered all these years later

A simple smile and simple sentence, not an ego inflater


I don’t know how many pairs of shoes I’ve purchased from their store

I know Lord willing, I’ll purchase many more


Not just because of Al’s kindness, but because they know how to treat people

When you enter Burkhartzmeyers you are the Altar in the Steeple


By that I mean you get all their attention and they genuinely care

You aren’t just a sale to them you are a friend, a breath of fresh air


It is my belief that is the key to the success of Burkhartmeyers Shoes

The fitting chairs in their store are their pews


It wasn’t too long ago I stopped by and count it as good luck

In the store, was Mr...
