First Birth Quandary

Even at the edge of highest cliff, He'll never let you down, You'll have the confidence of Job, and even forget how to frown. So cinch up your saddle, and with Jesus faithful ride, Eternally He'll bless you, and from God you'll never have to hide. AMEN
First Birth Quandary

By Arley Steinhour 053111

Every body must be born

Into life as a mortal being

Naked as a lamb full shorn

With eyes not quite yet seeing.

Moments after breathing air

The mind is filled with life

Offers up a trumpet blare

Used in protest most of life.

On occasion Doctors query

'How long can this child last'

Years all filled with memory

Or will it even have a Past.

Longevity does vary

With each that's given life

Unknown, for most it's scary

This world so filled with strife.

Each day of life fulfilling

Each night a dream-land flight

A life of memories thrilling

Or starvation, enduring Blight.

Every person has a life-road

Some short, long, or twisting

Be it Prince or bearing heavy load

Sadness filled or brightly lifting.

Little signs along the way

Three words, 'Are you Ready'

Price is Free, nothing to pay

You'll be strong and steady.

'Of course,' you say one day

Life changes week by week

Strengthening, and better

Faith in Jesus be to what I speak

He don't promise mortal happiness

Nor health and riches in your life

Only that you'll be with Him

Eternally, His Cherished Wife.

He promises, in metaphor

We be a part of Him

With Eternal blessings

Never more to Sin.

The little games that we can't play

Comes mostly from Satan's spawn

Eternal Blessing in the Longest Day

Beats Hell-bent, Satan-Drawn.

AMEN

Hey Billy!

Remember me? Mary Kay Styskal. Just wanted to say HI! Injoyed your thoughts although I don't remember you being so serious!

Weren't we the lucky ones to grow up in McCook in the golden '50's? I remember almost everyone and keep up with a lot of them.

All the best, Mary Kay
