Tongue of Flair

Ronald Bunch 1982 (Grand Rapids)

Sparks flying through the air.
I see the electricity in my hair.
I see the shock of love today and everywhere.

It is more blessed to give
Then to receive should we live.
I gave little so I suffered while in my chair.

I have all the promises of God.
I have eternal life with Jesus I nod,
But giving tiny amounts isn’t enough while I’m still fair.

But love shocks the broken hearted,
And love takes time to heal the newly charted,
But we must do more than at the wall stare.

Love breathes on you when you’re born.
Love proposes to you when you’re adorn.
So give more than you receive, a love worth to share.

Sparks fly when you’re in love.
Love flirts and gives a little shove,
But cover your mate with love don’t just care.

The mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
An evil man speaks evil, a good man speaks love.
The treasure of your heart is what you wear.

So ask God to change your heart
And from evil you will depart.
A heart of gold you have and a tongue of flair.

    For whoever gives a cup of water in My name shall be be blessed
    13 million died last year in India and Africa of starvation.
    How many cups did you give ?
    Just because you can't do everything doesn't mean you can't do something !
