Time Past






Since the time

of our wondrous beginning

I cannot but contemplate

the changes that have been molded



This fellow

who was committed

to a cause beyond sight

Now holds his family with all his might



Raising them each

as high as he can

in hopes that their success

will be close at hand



That success is not measured

by the wealth they gain

Yet by the size of their heart

when to the needs of others they do impart



For this fellow this to accomplish

he's had to replace

the habits conditioned

at a remarkable pace



For the wife

whom the impetus did provide

he gives the credit

for making him strive



To God

Who provided that through Him

all things are new

he is a live testament

that these words are true.

Communication is what makes this planet better, we have to learn to communicate better. Communication is not only content, but also delivery. talking to or with someone is totally different than talking at them. more…
