    The Poem 'Pastor Bill' was inspired by Pastor William (Bill) Lickliter, and his wife Shelly, of 'Milan First Assembly Of God', in Milan, Tennessee, where I am proud to be a member. Pastor Bill, and sister Shelly are two of the truest christians I've ever met. The poem 'God's Precious Gift' was inspired by their granddaughter, Naomi, which is the daughter of their eldest son Jacob, and wife Lori Lickliter.

A Daughter Through The Eyes Of A Father

(Dedicated to Bww and his 7 yr. Old daughter)

A daughter is beauty at its finest.
Heart of an angel, soul so pure, and sweet.
Daughters are one of God's most precious gifts that he has bestowed upon the world.
Angels in Heaven do not compare to thine beauty, and grace my ever so beautiful, and lovely daughter.
Seeing you at birth brought more joy to me
than all the money in the world could ever do.
You are morning, bright, and shining,
you are noon, you reside at the highest point in my heart,
you are the dew kissed night.
You are my daughter, heart,...
