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!

The Way of Circumspection

Gaining the right view from the perfect source

Lord, I am grateful for your mercy in teaching me the same lessons over & over until I got it right…

You’ve taught me not to complain or point fingers for the choices were mine alone—willful, purposeful, determined…

You’ve taught me not to judge because I am as others are … wretched, sinful, unrighteous … deserving of death …

You’ve taught me to be merciful to all because you never wrote me off … nor made me a footstool … nor relegated me to the land of forgetfulness …

You’ve taught me to pray without ceasing … even when those prayers took 5-10-15-20 year to be fulfilled … because you are not slack …

You’ve taught me to never give up, no matter how hard, painful, unfair, or devastating a circumstance was/is … because you use it all to shape & mold me …

You’ve taught me to believe in myself no matter how others treated me or reacted to me because your thoughts toward me count the most …

You’ve taught me not to love this world … its designs, designers, celebrities, trends, or its prosperity because they are enmity that will all fade away …

You’ve taught me that your love for me is sure, secure, and always faithful … You are a Father who demonstrates His care for His children 100% …

LORD, I’m not always sure of some things, but I’m 1000 times sold out to this truth:  You are for me … You Love Me … You’ll NEVER Leave me … and, without you I’d be lost forever without any hope.

Thank You, FATHER, for your commitment to me as a continual, patient, loving parent who shines His light to show me the way on the right and narrow road.

Your Parental Guidance is my covering and the map for my life!
