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 Still Small Voice

And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 1 Kings 19:12

We, so often, expect fanfare, writing on the wall, a display of power or a booming voice from heaven to answer our prayers…to show us the way. Silence is not what we want after requesting…we want an answer.

Yet…silence remains.

Without, there is noise; within, a still small voice. If we will not quiet the noise, how do we expect to hear the whisper of a still small voice.

The Father is not limited to how He responds to His children…
it is rather the children who limit the Father.

For the Moment

We tend to live our lives either looking back or dreaming forward. It is important not to forget today…to live for the moment.
