These Are The Things

A joyous smile

A long embrace

Piggy back rides

As we run the race

Of life.

 

Off key voices

Hiking a cliff

Staying up late

As we talk and laugh 

For hours.

 

Memories are

What build a life,

And through the years

I see what makes my

World shine.

 

Sharing love and

Teaching the truth,

This is what I’m 

Created to do

For life.

 

Saving a soul

Eternally. 

Leading a class

Of students ready

To learn.

 

Keeping a cat, 

Meeting with friends,

Living abroad, and 

Giving my all to

Jesus.

 

Reading God’s word,

Praying each day,

Loving the Lord 

Is the only way

I thrive.

 

These are the things

That use my time

These are the things 

That make my life worth

Living.
