The poems in this collection represent a lifetime of experiences-the roads traveled and the mercy and favor the author received from God. Ora Watson's childhood had been immersed in worship, but as she became an adult, her outlook began to change. At one point she even vowed never to attend another church service. But day by day, year by year, she grew closer to God. The poems in Poetry from the Heart acknowledge the many mistakes she made and show how the grace from a loving and kind God saved her. Readers will relate to her pain-and her joy-because God's children are more similar than not.
