Hello Linda
How I wish I had 6stars to give you for your illustration and your words about Love is so true
Delicious, are pleasing when you speak soft words of Love --
they open cold and hardened hearts.

Hello L. Raven,
Lovely piece of poetry scattering lovely fragrance all around!
"...if you don't act on His words
they're meaningless"
It's is like trying to make one's life meaningful.
Great Indeed!
Late, but in fact, nothing so good is too late.

    L. Raven, Most Welcome!
    "always look for you...and not for your stars" It's 100% true. I know this.
    I'm almost quite well now. Just slight circumstantial fluctuations. Nothing to worry!

    Thanks a lot for the concern!!
    With best wishes,

Hi Linda. This is a lovely poem. I am with you on this. He is there for me through thick and thin and I'm grateful for that. All we have to do is ask. Marilyn

Your poem is right on and true. Do we have the right to come boldly up to Jesus and say "I love you". Obviously because He took the first step, we can.

    Hi Gail, thank you so much for your review...but can you tell me what was wrong with my poem...when you give someone less than 5 stars you take away their exceptional stars...if you read the Fanstory rules and laws you will see what each rating is on the stars...so by giving me four stars...it says you are not happy with all of my poem...and then you tell what you don't like...if you are doing this to others...you are taking their stars away as well...this can be corrected...I don't care if you do mine...but might want to correct others...thank you...love Linda xxoo

Linda,

I ALWAYS enjoy your posts.

Back in the day, we had commercials about 'EF Hutton' -- a truly important and wise man. As I understand it, he didn't speak often... but when he did-- WOWEE ZOWEE -- folks sat up and PAID ATTENTION.

That's how I think of your writing. You don't post every day and you don't speak out on every topic.

But by now, you've trained all of us to know that when you DO bring out your pen and paper (orrr... screen and keyboard??) we will be in for a treat. Ha!

You are a smart gal and I really enjoy getting to peek inside that big ole brain. *smile*

I agree that, in pretty much all things, what we do is much more important than what we say. (My mom used to tell me: "Do as I SAY, NOT as I DO." Which I remember thinking, even at the time, was utterly ridiculous. )

Anyway, this was very perceptive and really original.

Thanks so much!! Have a magical day!

Cheers, J (*<*)

Very well said, six stars for the message alone in this. For years I claimed I believed in God, and lived shamefully. Did I believe? Yes, but no body else believed it, lol! That defeats the purpose of being a witness to others. As it goes " faiths without works is dead" it's better to show your faith with your actions rather than with your words. Thank you for sharing this.

Hello Raven... I really like your poem. It's true, some things are just lip service and lies. When you say you're going to do something, you should do it. Not saying you will over and over and over again and continue to come up with excuse after excuse why you can't. You can't profess to live by the word of God and fill your house with statues and pictures of Jesus and hold on to every little wrong ever done to you with an iron grip. I haven't read very far into the Bible yet but I do recall the part about NO false idols and forgiveness. Well, I always knew about the forgiveness... lol But you're right, you need to do what you can for those you can, while you can. Lip service is just that... nothing more.
