“Eventually you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is.” -Gary Zukav
What makes you smile?
What takes it all away awhile?
Kids are obsessed with it and they cry if deprived,
The stuff that makes you feel you’re alive.
Is it in a wrapper? Is it in a box?
Can you buy it or if too much of it requires detox?
Is it in the frozen food isle or at the end of the street?
Does the rush we feel in our lives come from the stuff we eat?!
O.C.E.A.N Personality TestFaith is not frozen, hope is never sold,
God did not intend the sweetness we crave to expire when it’s old.
Think of the way chocolate makes your worst mood lighten.
The way candy makes your declining energy heighten.
These things we associate with the words rich and savory.
What about the ocean, a good friend, or an aviary?
If you limit God’s given pleasures to what you can taste or feel,
You will miss out on exactly the things He intended to be real.
Somethings can temporarily serve you as a tasty treat, but
Salvation, Forgiveness, for an Eternity???
NOW THAT IS SOMETHING SWEET!!
“…pleasure, of course, is a slippery word…. Our pleasures ultimately belong to us, not to the pleasure’s source.” -Billy Collins
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10 NKJV)
