The Measure of a Man
“I can do all things through Christ the one who strengthens me.”
Is how this man has lived so well and loved so Passionately.
He tackled everything he did with the utmost Honesty.
His life was the Incarnate of the living Majesty.
His Love of God and country and that of family
Led him to serve, and live each day with unquestionable Integrity.
His kind and gentle presence was a teacher and a friend
Yet Powerful and confident in one you could depend.
Perhaps this glimpse can help you see, there’s none so well deservant
Of hearing at the end of life, “Well done, they faithful servant.”
