Have A Little Faith


once saw an old movie
a particular line quite groovy

twas Donald Sutherland who said
this line stuck in my head

when one needs a swift kick (figuratively)(with a smile)
I'm reminded of this old flick

say this line with a slow drawl
now remember this y'all

he didn't say don't and he didn't say maybe
he said "Have a little faith, baby."

now that wasn't so tough
short, sweet without a lot of fluff

but it carries a strong punch
'cause God loves you a whole bunch!

Mark 11:22
"Have faith in God," Jesus answered.

Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

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.
