Next of Kin

About discipline
it’s not next of kin.
It has to dwell within.
It deals with oneself
shouldn’t be stored on a shelf.
It’s not like an elf,
which is not real.
It’s not how you feel.
Heed this appeal.
~
Discipline is the way to go
this we should know,
because it does show
such good juicy fruit.
This is our loot,
which makes me want to hoot.

Sound

Joy is my sound
which I resound.
We all have a different note
but we shouldn’t gloat
because it takes more than one
to get the job done.
Together we sing
together we bring
a beautiful tune
that will soon
fill the air above
to the One we love.
We’re instruments in His hand
together we will stand.
How can we go wrong
singing His wonderful song.

Friendships

When one does complain
it is such a drain
it sure does strain
those who hear
and those who are near
because it does tear
and abuse
making everyone lose
while ugliness does cruise.
Friendships are effected
truth is rejected
and none suspected.
~
It sure does complicate
those who hesitate
and want to meditate
on what life is truly about
where joy and peace sprout
kicking all complaining out.
So come and see
just how free
you can truly be
if you watch over your word
which is always heard
it will help and gird
you from going astray
each and every day
This is the right way.
You will be on the right path
now you’ve avoided God’s wrath
and peace will be hath
There won’t be any aftermath.

My Plea

To You I did plea
You came and strengthened me
It’s always the same
Doesn’t matter from where I came
He comes to me
Completely
My word
He has heard
He’s leading me a new way
I’ll be okay
My feet He does steady
Enabling me to be ready
I will not get struck
In all the muck
Nor will I be stuck in the snow
For I know the way in which to go.
I will walk on dry ground
This is where I’ll be found
His Word I have read
This is my bread
Each and every day
It sets me on my way
