Sometimes We Drink...



 Will we be water-carriers today or is it our turn to drink?
Which ever it is, whether we are receiving or waiting-working and believing,
I wish you a wonder-and-joy-full last day of the first month of 2017!



Sometimes we drink
Sometimes we carry
The water so others
May quench their thirst
Sometimes we think
We would like the honor
Our brother or sister
Is granted first

Sometimes we work
Neighbor helping neighbor
While waiting to harvest
What we hunger for
Sometimes we wonder
As we watch another
Receive while we labor,
If we could have done more

Sometimes we pause
Learning kindness because
Someone in front of us
Reached out first
Sometimes we drink
Sometimes we carry
The water so others
May quench their thirst

  A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. 
Prov.14:30


For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  
Gal.5:14

Matt, our son, asked me recently if Elvis sang any gospel songs! He sure did!!

  1. Very, very clever. Ending with a thiist, which leads back to the drink
