The Ultimate Awards Ceremony_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why Academy recognition pales in comparisonGrammys and Oscars,
Emmys and such
are little gold trophies that say
“It’s glitz and it’s glamour
that matter the most.
That’s the currency Hollywood pays.

But standing on stage
or recording a song
or landing a sought-after part
Means little in life
when it’s all said and done.
What’s important is what’s in your heart.

The bucks may be big
and the fame may be fast.
But what fun is playing a role?
Your purpose on earth
is to be who YOU are
and with Christ to live life to the full.

While “the envelope please”
will one day be heard
when God reads aloud who has won,
it will not require
that you be a star,
just that you have accepted His Son.

All your poetry is really great, and like the others this one really says it! You really expressed the shallowness of the whole Hollywood situation and what is really important in life.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
