A new original poem by Delores Butler:

Welcome to another week, and another edition of Words of Wisdom with Delores Banks-Butler. Delores’ original poetry is inspired by her love of her family and community in Louisville’s West End, as well as her strong Christian faith.


Title:  Great Blessings

By: Delores Banks-Butler


Great blessings are coming my way 

As I seek your face

Great Blessings are coming my way

Amazing blessings everyday

Great blessings are coming my way 

As I seek your face

I woke up this morning

With my mind on Jesus

I knelt down on my knees in earnest prayer


I thanked God for all his many blessings

Food clothes and shelter

Life,health and strength

Are all mine today


I thank God for all his many blessings

Eyes to see, Ears to hear, Legs to walk

I thank him for all his many blessings 

What he has already have done

For all the blessings yet to come
