The What and Why of Life

           The What and Why of Life

If I love and I live for the Lord first,
All my family will be blessed.
When before children His Word is rehearsed,
Teachings for life may not be missed.

Don’t want a balanced life, but alignment
Of my life with God’s perfect Word.
Be sure of His will is my assignment-
That, in family, this be heard.

May the Cross speak the passion of my heart
Whether someone gives back or not.
Let retribution never be a part
Of my life – not tittle or jot!
