"My poem 'If Only I Had Known You'"
Charles Swindoll will be reading my poem "If Only I Had Known You" on his broadcast Insight for Living. His thirty minute daily Bible teaching is heard worldwide on more than 2,000 radio outlets each day. Since 1979 his messages have been distributed all over the world.
My poem, "If Only I Had Known You", is in the upcoming series The Way of Truth in a World of Fiction: Beyond The Da Vinci Code.The exact dates for the sermon containing the poem, "Jesus Ascended and Seated in Heaven," are May 11 and May 12.
Imagine my delight when I received a call asking permission for audio rights. Iím happy when something written more than twenty-five years ago is meaningful to someone and valued enough to be used. The Lord knows Iíve been questioning whether Iíve made good use of talents He has given.
You may read the poem at this site on the Poetry page, number 13. It is available in the greeting card pictured at the upper right of this home page. See it in full on the Greeting Card page. The photo shows my granddaughter, Avery, at a waterfall in the Carolinas. It provides just the right sense of wonder and delight to go with "If Only I Had Known You."
Another rendering of the poem, in calligraphy done by Thomas Simmons, is posted on the Calligraphy page. All three versions are available through the shopping cart as greeting cards and as miniature laminates.
