Bitter or Better


the choice is up to you my friend
it really does matter in the end
as you think - so you are
with a positive attitude you'll be richer by far
you may or may not control the circumstances
mistakes will be made so God allows second chances
in your problems, rejoice
remember, it's your choice
God can use a situation when others are mean
to your advantage when wisdom you glean
put your life in God's hands
He doesn't take kindly to demands
humble yourself before the LORD
within His heart strikes a tender chord
His desire is to make you more godly
He wants you praisin' not cursin'
will you be a bitter or better person
the choice is up to you my friend
it really does matter in the end

Romans 3:3-5
...but, we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perserverance, perserverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
