Ripple Effect

The actions of today can have long-term, far-reaching implications in your living for the future. A disciplined life with attitudes or actions that honor and praise God leads to a bright future. These are some of the thoughts that inspired this poem. Have a great weekend my friends!

Step Ahead

The actions of our now
Will help to allow
A chance to make an impact
And keep us on track.

Those that realize the need
To correct any misdeeds
Proceed with activities
With great possibilities.

Bitterness and Jealousy
Can wreck a great destiny
Destroy a family
And make all unhappy.

Living each day
The disciplined way
Honors God with praise
Leading to bright future days.
