The Things In Life That Really Matter…


Beyond the daily business

and all of it’s “chatter.”

Have you thought about the

things that really matter?


Would your answer be the family, money, or fame?

Or would it be something that you can’t name?


I often hear talk of living “the American dream.”

But there’s many people that don’t have anything!


There are those who do well.  Others do not.

Many live for today without a second thought.


Those things we hold as important can disappear.

We can quickly lose what we hold so dear.


The most important thing

 that needs to be known.

You need to make Christ the Lord of your home!


Jesus Christ and his love is a treasure to hold!

What he gives is more valuable than the purest gold!


Christ and his word is what we need to build on!

He alone is the only one you can truly depend on!


As you “prioritize” things...  Please take a moment.

Think about Christ love!  And his atonement!


Think about what Christ offers to you instead.

Think about where you’ll be after you’re dead!


Jesus Christ always will be there

 for me and you!

All that matters is Jesus!  That’s true!

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!
