Daughters and $ense – T.Gilbert

Mr. Gilbert is a Kansas City native

Let me begin

With this Daughter$ relationship

For one, there$ no type of passion to begin with

Not that it matters, but truly at time$

It doesn’t make sense

It’s only a make believe

Is what the experts will tell you

I’ve never had a daughter

But If I did

I would go out of my way

To be there when she swings off the tree

And from there

And perhaps she would start

Her very first sentence

I would be afraid to ask,

“How was your day?”

Knowing she’s been reading my mind

For almost the whole entire day

As she would never let go

Of the handlebars

As she’s watching me

As I’m building

This new looking fence

Next on my list

I’m start thinking about

Putting up drywall

But in the meantime

I’m making the most

With what I have

With Daughter and $ense!

But Your Heart

You are a wonder to watch day after day and night after night. How I long to hold you in my arms. You are so beautiful. You are so handsome. Your daily routine, impressive. Your goals are attainable. You demonstrate consistent willpower and keep your focus on the rainbows in your view. I marvel at your strength and tenacity in these times of ever-changing roles and lifestyles.

You are a feast for the eyes. You are always well-dressed. You model thrift store purchases as one endowed with riches. Your poise is full of humble confidence. Stylish by all standards. No one would deny you have earned it. Your climb up the corporate ladder is inspiring. Turning your business into a household name noteworthy. Every promotion deserved.

We find you remarkable. We know what you sacrifice to do what you do to give what you give. No one can attest to the time you obligate to others. Many miss how you extend your hand to serve others. Watching you willingly add to your already full plate exhausts me. You lend all of your talents to those around you. Your service in ministry is well-pleasing. You are faithful and so blessed.

I have spent lots of time and words expressing the debt of my love and appreciation for you. I know at the end of the day you returned my love the best way you knew how. It makes me love you even more. I know you have given me everything you feel you possess.

Everything … but your heart!

In the Shadow of Forewarning

Some things are right before our eyes …

Copyright © Wanda Murry, August 31, 2018

Forewarn (Webster):

To admonish beforehand; To inform previously; To give previous notice; To caution beforehand

Forewarn (Strong’s Concordance):

To exhibit under the eyes; To exemplify (instruct, admonish); To show by making known future things

This I know because it has been foretold,

That in these last days, perilous times would come,

Where me, myself & I would be lovers of their selves;

Where the heart would covet, boast, and proudly ignore.

Where blasphemers rail against knowledge to disobey parents,

Unthankful for their welfare, and unholy in their cares.

Without natural affection, trucebreakers who falsify pacts.

These false accusers fill jails; incontinent slackers they are.

Under fierce attacks, they are despisers of those that are good.

Traitors who prey relentlessly, always heady in mischief.

Highminded, they are lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.

Delusional in their form of godliness, they deny the power of the source.

Beware my sisters, for they creep into houses to lead silly women captive;

Catering to those laden with sins and willingly led away with divers lusts.

Beware brethren of ever learning, when acts and deeds uncover

The inability to come to the knowledge of the truth,

Under the shadow of what is still yet to materialize …

4And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.  5But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.  Luke 12:4-5
