About the Book

Earth Light is a collection of original poems that highlight the boundless peace, hope, forgiveness, and everlasting love that God provides. Based on scripture, the purpose of this book is to fill the reader's heart with God's awesome promises and glorious grace.

They hung our Lord upon a cross,
A deed that lives in infamy.
Now, we hang one 'round our necks,
Forgetting not His agony.
A symbol known throughout the world,
Whatever land we live in,
A sign that shows such mercy
That the nailer was forgiven.
Donald Terranella

About the Author

Together, the Terranella family has lived through sorrow and joy, failure and success, chaos and calm, and sin and redemption.

Throughout all of life's seasons, they've learned that God holds them firmly in His loving, powerful hands. He offers strength, guidance, and compassion for all who listen to His voice.

They’ve learned that the key to happiness is giving gratitude and appreciation to God for His awesome works.

They’ve learned that loving God provides hope, joy, and peace in life; however, failure and heartache also happen in life. God offers a remedy for failure and heartache. His gifts of grace and redemption can heal a broken heart.

God’s powerful hands, His awesome works, and His glorious grace have given the Terranella siblings a reason to honor Him through their poetry:


My God’s hands are full of wonders. They guide me ‘round life’s foolish blunders.
They catch my arm if I should stumble, then break my fall the times I tumble.
They dust me off and mark the trail that I should follow without fail;
Then His hands hold me, though undeserving. They shape and mold me ‘till I am serving.
They lift me up and make me whole, then smooth the wrinkles from my soul.
––Ronald Terranella


“Awesome” is a vibrant word that’s overused by far
For a woman’s hair color, or for a brand-new car.
But stand beside a turbulent sea beneath a harvest moon,
Or watch a cheetah running, or see a flying loon.
Technology is something else, and all that will ensue,
But I’m reserving “awesome”, Lord, for all that’s done by You.
––Donald Terranella


How can I explain the grace You offer me? As the sand is comforted by the cooling sea,
As the earth is cleansed by the gentle rain, My Faithful Friend, You take me back again.
––Naomi Terranella

Many of the poems in EARTH LIGHT are also song lyrics, which are available on two musical CDs: DECISIONS OF SUBMISSION and LOST SHEEP ARE LOVED. For more information, or to leave comments, the authors would welcome an email from you.
