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.”

Altar Call

~

Church house is small; steeple white and tall.
Preacher started talking; he gave an altar call.
Feet began to moving; hands began to clap.
Folks singin’ and a prayin’; pattin’ on my back.

Jesus is a calling; knockin’ at my door.
Tears a plenty fallin’; kneelin’ on the floor.
A sinner’s prayer I’m prayin’; God’s forgivin’ me.
Kneelin’ at the altar; or is it Calvary.

Jumpin’ and a shoutin’; I got the victory.
Be a sittin’ with the saints for all eternity.
Shoutin’ and a praisin’; what a jubilee.
Glory Hallelujah! His blood has set me free.

Children of God

The relationship of a child and father should be your relationship with God…personal, open, honest, trusting. Hold that picture in your mind each day. Talk to your Father each day; spend time with Him; let Him know how you feel; be open, be honest with Him. Hold this picture in your mind each day…a child and a Father.

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26
