My Nephew's Glory Poems

March 2017

Allan was actually my nephew-in-law five years younger than me,

but he was my spiritual brother in Christ and closer than my natural

brothers. He was my closest friend - we were in daily converse with

each-other over the phone.

He did not have an easy life and he had a physical health challenge

but his heart was always towards people, using what giftings and talents

he had from Jesus to help anyone who needed help in some way.

He was a remarkably gifted man who could do anything he set his mind to.

He absolutely loved Jesus and was known for this - he was liked

and loved by everyone.

A Man Called Allan

There was a man called Allan

he was gentle and wise.

He was so thoughtful

and touched so my lives.

He had a heart for others

and a helping hand

He employ his skills in a way

that could make you dance.

For he was so gifted

he could do many things

in your house or garden

such cheer he would bring.

The message of Jesus

embedded in his steps

If you were upset

he would help you not to fret.

His counsel was wise

it came from his heart.

He befriended strangers

and a new life they would start.

He set a perfect example of

the Love of God.

With a message of Peace

his feet were shod.

He will be missed. this friend of ours

If I told you everything

it would take hours!

My Friend and Brother

There is nothing like a faithful friend

to them your heart and trust you lend.

Their compassion lasts more then a while

to walk with you those extra miles.

Allan was the best of brothers

he knew how to be like no other.

Now he's run the race and won

he's there beyond the moon and sun.

Endless days of pure sweet Heaven

in that Land where there's no leaven.

No sadness but gladness

no strife but Life.

Yes, life Eternal with his King

now he laughs and shouts and sings.

All these Victories Jesus won

freely given, now Allan has fun.

If you wish for such a brother

Jesus is the closest I know!

A Gentle Man

He did not walk an easy walk

but he knew what it was to walk the talk

He had a handful of leases on life

he spent them on others

and took things in his stride.

He spoke words of kindness

to each one's heart

he would teach you to make

a fresh new start.

His body was week but his spirit was strong

he was patient and caring the whole day long.

He was the best of confidants

so understanding, he would give you a chance.

He kept people's secrets many times

he had a heart to encourage

and make you flourish.

Such a precious man, this Allan of ours

reflections of him can take hours.

True Brother and Friend

He was my brother and forever-friend

the memories of him shall never end.

He would steer you away

from heartache and strife

If he saw any possibility of them

he would guard you for life.

He had different challenges in family

and in health

but your needs he could not put on a shelf.

He would guide you safely to the haven of prayer

a sure place of refuge, he declared.

"Some bring you gladness and then bring you pain"

his wisdom astounded time and again.

He would lift many up when they were down

and be the best friend they could find around.

He was my true brother and friend for life.

Such a Gifted Man

Let me tell you about Allan

an endearing friend

a precious acquaintance

time well spent.

He was a craftsman of cabinets and hearts

his works were always sure to last.

He put timber together in a way you treasure

he put hearts together in his leisure.

His heart was always for others

yes, such a brother

if you needed a friend, his ear he would lend.

His words were wise and often surprised.

He had forgiveness rare

now he lives beyond those stairs.

His heart was always in one accord

now he Rejoices with Jesus

his Risen Lord

and ALL the Blessings Heaven affords!

A Man of Prayer

Allan was a man of prayer

he talked to his Friend and Savior upstairs.

He lived only always for his King

yet this was expressed towards others

such help and cheer he would bring.

Seldom has there been someone so wise

who could fill your face with a big surprise.

He had the right answer many times

he would let you know and things would be fine.

He had not family to hug and feel close

the ways of Jesus is what he chose.

He poured affection on others, his sisters and brothers

in the household of God on this earthly sod.

He went to a Home Church and new Hope was birthed

and when they praised Jesus it felt like mirth.

Short of breath, he would join in

each time his spirit was filled to the brim.

Allan we love you!

A True Example

Allan was always happy for his sisters and brothers

he would always rejoice with them like no other.

Often he could not make it to the next room

you would not want to be in his shoes.

But the very first breath he would spend on Jesus

and show others He came to free us.

Often he managed to be up and about

when a new lease on life

the devil would clout.

He had inner strength very rare

and a train of thought fine and fair.

He said "anytime, we can choose how we feel"

He was quietly spoken but he had zeal.

He knew the art of quietness to bring brightness

lost in prayer with his Maker Upstairs.

Allan, you're example of Hope

even on our mountain slopes.

We think of you

Blessings for Allan

Allan walked with the Friend of Friends

Praise gatherings he would often attend.

Rain or shine, he loved to be there

with his intimate friends, such blessings they shared.

We loved him so much, he was a delight

he was so precious in God's sight.

If you were in need, he would be around

with his giftings that did often astound.

It wouldn't matter what the task

you only had to call and ask.

Now he's Home in Heaven with his Lord

Jesus has for him a Sure Reward.

He can laugh and dance and shout and sing

in the Land of his Savior Friend and King.

He was also color-blind. Can you imagine his JOY when he saw

everything in true COLOR? Brothers and sisters Jesus has sent

back to us say that in Heaven, Colors are gloriously Vivid.

And Allan's rewards are many I'm sure!
