Tis true

Life is made of choices

So think before acting

For what we choose determines

Our fate

Proverbs 23:7 scripture image

Floating in the air

My thoughts can soon

Manifest actions

Be careful with your thoughts.

“brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things.”

Right On Target

Bullseye with arrow in the middle

I gave life to a word today

I released it in haste

It formed like an arrow

Piercing its target deep

In regret I tried

To take it back

But it still

Left a

Mark

I gave life to a word today

Releasing it with tenderness

It formed like an a heart

Hugging its target tight

Awaking lost dreams

To hope again

Happily it

Left a

Mark

The words

You speak

Charm me

But then

Your loud

Them all

Book of Life

Book of Life
Let’s write a good book.

I’m not a writer you say,

Yet daily you unfold,

The living story of your life.

For the world to see

It’s told by your words and actions,

Recorded in minds

Of those you interact with.

Are you proud to be its Author?
