Milton Joseph Batson turns to poetry to more fully understand God’s Word and its possibilities for humankind. His poems and reflections chronicle his life story, describing inner thoughts about faith, human emotion, and the indescribable fulfilling joy of experiencing God’s miraculous love.
The author’s expressive words are grouped in sections that cover God’s beauty and bounty; God’s promises; God’s gifts; God’s wisdom, guidance, lessons learned; gratitude; and questions, searching and answers. Dates on each poem help chronicle Milton’s experiences, and increasing comprehension, which work hand-in-hand as someone grows in faith and spiritual exploration. He included sketches above a few of his pomes, intended as pictorial puzzles paraphrasing portions of the poem.
Milton’s heartwarming poems chronicle his journey as he works to share God’s truths, his struggles along the way, and adventures with indescribable joy. His elegant words provide a truly enjoyable read for those who seek God’s wisdom and appreciate poetry’s ability to translate human feelings and emotions. But above all, Milton wants to help others experience God’s grace filled love and enlightenment in their own lives: “My most ardent hope is that as I travel down life’s numerous pathways, the positive lessons experienced and chronicled might provide some illumination in an otherwise darkening world.”
