It serves as an apt title for this collection of twenty poems and songs because some of them were written before the Lord came into his life and some afterwards.

Together, these writings depict the first 25 years of one man’s odyssey. Readers will be able to identify with his experiences of growing up, hope, failure, and joy, to name a few. While some selections may make you smile, laugh, or cause you to reminisce about your childhood and teen years, others will challenge you to think and reflect on your own spiritual journey.The book opens with several poems about growing up.

“City Kid” is about the years spent growing up in New York City. “Old Friends” is on how some of the poet’s friends changed as they became teenagers. “New Beginnings” was published in his high school yearbook and is about hopes and dreams.Although some may take it as a political statement, “No Snow will Melt Today” is simply a fun piece of writing.The next set of poems is about the universal experience of failure.

“The Phenom” is about a high school baseball player who got a big head. “failure” is about how, despite our best efforts, we sometimes wind up failing anyway. Anyone who’s ever gone through the pain of unrequited love will be able to identify with “The Dreamer’s Dreams.”The turning point of the book comes when the author tries to express the inexpressible joy of salvation in the subsequent group of poems and songs.

“The Wanderer” expresses his transformation from being lost to being found by Christ. He then shows his amazement for his newfound life in “And Could it be.” “The Road” is another poem about his search for meaning in life and how he found it in his Savior.The following four songs and poems are about how the Lord, through His people, reaches out to the world He loves. They are “The Road,” “Streetdreaming,” “Johnny’s Tale,” and “Growing Old.”“Vanity,” “To be Free,” and “After the Show” are poems meant to inspire people who haven’t yet found real freedom and meaning in life to consider Christ.They’re followed by “Mother and Daughter” and “Stuck,” two poems that depict every believer’s struggle between continuing to follow the Lord and going back to their old way of life.The book triumphantly closes with “It’s a Wonder to Me,” San Pascual’s way of signaling to his readers that, by the grace of God, the writer chooses the new life in Christ over the old way of sin.
