God’s Home, My Heart
and Tribute to Our Vietnam Veterans
About the Book
In my heart, I feel Jesus He never leaves me alone. I awaken each morning Listening to the birds and the bees I love hearing Him whisper Through the flowers and trees. Walter Wheat, a decorated Vietnam veteran who has both felt and witnessed the love of God throughout his lifetime, shares a new collection of heartfelt, inspirational poems that touches on the emotions and tribulations we often feel while in God’s presence. Wheat reflects on the hope that Jesus provides, the blessings he brings to us in our daily endeavors, a soldier’s life under the duress of gun and mortar fire, and the hardships that families must endure when a loved one is lost in combat. Throughout his poems, Wheat explores the strength that can be found when one embraces a relationship with God, the loneliness that accompanies an empty mailbox, a prayer that asks for forgiveness of sins, the comfort that comes with knowing that God is beside us through all the storms in life, and much more. God’s Home, My Heart is a volume of inspirational poetry shared by a decorated Vietnam veteran to provide a gentle reminder to believers that our Savior is everywhere and in everything.
