Creed For Life's Highway Cred




Don’t count your chickens before they hatch
Plan but with this thought in mind
Often our plans and God’s plans don’t match
Still, always be gentle and kind

Don’t push the person ahead of you, dear
To get to the front of the line
Soon today’s trouble is yesterday’s tear
So always be gentle and kind

Testing and trial are life’s Certainty
Proving the measure behind
Smiles big and bright when the day is sunny
And we all seem gentle and kind

Don’t heap up more than you need; be content
Lest we become people-blind
Don’t let greed gobble up gifts God has lent
Always be gentle and kind

Always leave room at your table, my friend
For an ‘angel unaware
We never know what waits ‘round the next bend
Or what will shape our next prayer

Don’t borrow care from tomorrow, my love
Life’s strife is present-designed
Granting grand chance for example to prove
Who truly is gentle and kind

So, don’t count your chickens before they hatch
Plan but be humble of mind
Often our plans and God’s plans don’t match
Still, always be gentle and kind

 Continue in brotherly love. 2Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. 3Remember those in prison as if you were bound with them, and those who are mistreated as if you were suffering with them.…
Heb.13:1-3
