Brittany Wilson 1988 (Milwaukee, WI)
Working 9-5 & go broke every pay period,
Car consistently breaks down & I go broke to get it fixed,
Repairs need to be done on my house out of my pocket,
The Five Senses of Life
Do you see the Navy Jets flying in the air? Do you see the clouds move as the breeze blows through the trees? Do you see the rainbow disco lights blink as the colors change?
This is the first of the five senses.
Bottom Line: God’s In Control Now
Relatives in & out of hospitals,
Posers take love & kindness for granted,
Families torn apart to confetti-like shreds,
Bottom line: God’s in control now.
Christmas wreaths with silver bells on every door, ringing & jingling & blowing in the wind, & hung on every door of every house on every block
Snow covering the streets & highways
Garland & ornaments on Christmas trees & banisters galore
Fireplaces with roasted logs & tacks hanging socks full of candy & toys.
