About Butch Dean

I was born and raised in the mid-west and attended high school in the '50's. My paths in life have taken me from a teenager in the fifties to the U.S. Navy in the sixties; from a blue collar worker to a nursing degree; from Illinois-Arkansas-Florida-Tennessee and back to my hometown in Illinois. Many roads have I traveled and many travelers have I met along the way, all with stories to be told. With my faith in God and “dust on my shoes,” I travel the writer’s path. My poetry and writings are about faith, hope, love and the human condition. It is my sincere hope that the thoughts expressed will find a way to speak to your heart and soul. "It's never too late and you are never too old to do what you’ve always wanted to do.”

A Tall Order

 

…“love one another as I have loved you.”

John 15:12

 

God loves us to the ultimate…He asks us to do the same, one to another. Think about that. Sounds good…we say it over and over, but to do it…no exceptions…no favorites…no preferred…but to apply it to everyone…

a Tall order.

Easter Sunday Sunrise Service

…baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit…

On Easter Sunday morning, during the Crescent Beach Baptist Church sunrise service at Crescent Beach, FL, Bonnie was baptized in the Atlantic ocean as I watched with tears in my eyes.
