This Is Why We Stand

Some thoughts from us about the current flag issue set to music.

This Is Why We Stand
For every little boy who wants to be
Just like his soldier dad he will never see again
This is why we stand
For every little girl who will marry someday
Without her soldier dad to give away  her hand
This is why we stand
For every brokenhearted dad and mom
Waiting for a soldier child to come home
On that Angel Flight, and they watch it land
This is why we stand for the red white and blue
As they sing those words written down for me and you
To remember, freedom has a price
To say our thanks for their sacrifice
This is why…this is why we stand 
For every tear that falls through the night
From the face of soldier’s lonely wife…she’s missing him
This is why we stand
For every family table with an empty chair
Cause a son or a daughter won’t be there to hear “Amen.”
This is why we stand
For every wound and every scar
That can be found on a soldier’s heart…
and in their mind and on their skin
Cho…
We stand…Cause every reason we can
Has a name, and a face, and they fight to keep us safe
Cho…

Still a Lot of Love

“So to those who are saying this country’s filled with hate, what you see and what I’m seeing ain’t the same…”


Still A Lot of Love

 

I see people helping strangers

Who are on the highway broken down

I see neighbors helping neighbors

After a storm comes through their town

I see firemen carrying babies as if they were their own

Running out of the flames on the TV news

Then I hear somebody saying

This country’s filled with hate

But from what I see…it ain’t true

There’s still a lot of love,

There’s still a lot of love…here in America

 

I hear applause in the airports

For the soldiers coming home

I hear nurses cry for the feeble

Who feel lost and all alone

I see hands reaching deep, way down in the pockets

To feed the poor…and ease the pain

So to those who are saying

This country’s filled with hate

What you see and what I’m seeing ain’t the same

There’s still a lot of love

Still a lot of love…here in America

 

There’s still a lot of good hearts giving out sweet smiles

Still a lot of willing souls going those extra miles

Still a lot of kind words, still a lot of good deeds

It’s no wonder people want to come here but nobody wants to leave.

 

I still see cars coming to a stop

When the hearse comes down the road

I still see the young ones helping out the old

I still see friends of missing children giving up their time

To search the fields…side by side

 

So when we hear somebody saying

This country’s filled with hate

We all know that ain’t so

There’s still a lot of love

Still a lot of love…here in America

“The Tales Hunters Tell”

 

Tales Hunters Tell cover

 

The Tales Hunters Tell is just what the subtitle implies, “stories of adventure and inspiration!”  The tales are based on stories I’ve lived as well as some I’ve heard along the trail of life. I suspect you’ll smile a lot while reading because you’ll see yourself in the scenes, and because hunters can be an emotional lot, your eyes might even get a little misty with one of the stories.

In addition to the ten new tales in the book, Harvest House Publishers has graciously included the entire text of the original book titled, “Full Draw.” This suspenseful story is about a hunter named Joe Tanner who, while in the woods pursuing the elusive whitetail, finds himself being pursued by a couple of dangerous fugitives. His only hope for survival is to use his hunting skills. You’ll also be intrigued by the way his wife, son and a few friends get involved in the fray.

My thanks to all of you have read my previous books for hunters and I hope you’ll enjoy this new offering. With deer season not too far away you’ll need some reading material while you wait for the big one to walk under your stand. Just don’t forget to look up every once in a while as you read!

“A Look At Life from the Riverbank” Steve’s Book for Anglers

Riverbank vert

With springtime arriving a lot of folks are heading to the lakes, streams and ponds to enjoy fishing. We wanted to remind you of Steve’s very well received book for fishermen and women titled, “A Look at Life from the Riverbank.” The subtitle of this newly expanded version of “Reel Time with God” explains the contents of this unique book…Stories About Fishing and the Meaning of Life!

In these well-written devotions about fishing you’ll discover how doing things like casting, steering a boat, watching the ripples on the water, cleaning your catch, or crossing a creek can help you live a victorious life. 

Filled with stories lived while at the water, this book will be a great addition to every angler’s tackle box.

Here’s what one fisherman said about this book…

“Thank you for sharing your fishing stories and tying them to scripture and making it applicable to our lives. My name is John Verdi and I am a husband, father, pastor, musician and a serious angler. I really enjoyed reading a story from your devotional right before bed. Thanks again and Blessings to You” Romans 11:33-36
