To God be the Glory is La Shea's second published book of poetry. The poems represent La Shea's acknowledgement that God is Supreme. He has control over the earth and universe. The Bible states that the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.-- Psalm 24:1 The poems also represent people that have had an impact on La Shea's life either through example, support, or guidance. The examplifying lives of Jesus Christ and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; two men who knew that their lives were on borrowed time and yet were not diswayed from accomplishing their unselfish contribution to mankind. These two great men and some family and friends are personified through La Shea's poems. May the book be a blessing to the reader and that he or she must also say, "To God be the Glory!"
LISTEN TO ME Who makes the sun to shine The moon to glow Who speaks so soft, so slow Through the springtime windy blow Who do you hear in the twinkling, Dripping drops of the morning rain Or the wrinkling and rustling Walking through fallen foliage So subtle, so sweet Who cracks the sky with boisterous Bangs of thunder and quick snapping, Flashing bolts of lightening Quiet! This time you must listen He is speaking We know Who speaks For we and all nature glorify He.
