No Leap of Serendipity...

It is not by some leap of fortune or fate
That we become who we will be
But moment by moment our conduct creates
Character, personality

Think well, my dear child on the words that you speak
Habits are formed unaware
A person is born neither mighty nor weak
Life turns us to faith or despair

Think well, father, mother, as we live, laugh, love
It is in brief moments we teach
A small child is watching, the fruit of our thought
And action is stronger than speech

Life is not a leap of serendipity
We become who we are when we’re old
Thus we ought to consider more earnestly
The worth of each moment we hold

© Janet Martin

A needful reminder this morning prompted these thoughts...
We are becoming who we will be carefully.
