EVERLASTING

Success not attained by making more!

Wealth can satisfy for but a day,

And when that day is ended it is all over!

Vanished!  That bird flew away!

.

.

Eternity that is where the soul is heading!

Body but a room, no permanence.

Sure, that house that God supplies creditable!

Not to deny its continence.

.

.

For “we are fearfully and wonderfully made!” (*)

Just for a season then we perish!

Though Spirit, Soul, lives on forever!

Farewell to that friend long cherished!

.

.

Eternity will smile in recollection of

That brief 90 years we spent,

So then we wonder, did we spend it wisely?

Time that God so kindly lent.

.

.

Or did we fritter it away foolishly

Like, some foolish folk at play?

Did we not have fun but later are sorry?

Wasted moments for but a day!

.

.

Tomorrow’s day extends forever!

Our loving God, the punishment,

Shows joy at times, cherished memories

Through sorrows as it was meant.

.

.

Forgetting God unwisely, our Creator,

He smiled with us, did we forget?

His love continues though we oft forfeit

Sustaining love He loves us yet!

.

.

We make mistakes we sin, oh so often!

And do not deny a sin in itself!

“All have sinned…” and yes, we repeat daily!

Nor does pride stay on the shelf!

.

.

“She made me do it…”  Forgot how to say no

Adam and Eve clear forgotten?

“That woman You gave me, made me do it…”

Both in sin all begotten!

.

.

A soul lifted up in self-esteem

May protest, “I am not heathen!”

“All have sinned and come short…”

.

.

(*) Psalm 139:14
