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.”

Take a Moment to Pray

~

Take a moment to pray…

A teenager wants to die.

 

Take a moment to pray…

A father has no job.

 

Take a moment to pray…

A mother lost her child.

 

Take a moment to pray…

A child’s without a home.

 

Take a moment to pray…

A family’s breaking up.

 

Take a moment to pray…

A moment…

Before you start your busy day.

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.

God is not limited to how He responds to His children…

it is rather the children who limit the Father.
