The Grass Isn't Always Greener!

The Grass Isn’t Always Greener!


I knew a man who thought

 "things would get better."

He had children and a wife.

  But left her.


Someone who "captivated his eyes."

He was allured by her "beauty" and lies.


His wife loved God and the

 kids with all her heart.

"How could this happen?" 

This question "ripped her heart."


 They went to church...

 and did their "Sunday best."

How could this "happy" family

 turn into such a mess?


Temptation can happen to anyone.

 Rich or poor.

Be careful what  you allow to

 enter your mind's door.


Regardless of whether you've been

 a "Christian" for "20 years..."

One shameful act can cause

 heartache and tears.


What God has given you...

  Let no one take way.

No matter what others think...

 Or what they might say.


Stay true to God.  You'll be

glad you did!

His love and joy will bless you

 each day that you live!


Jesus is HERE NOW! 

And won’t leave you alone!

Allow HIM to bring peace and

 love to your home!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
