ALL THIS STUFF

Perhaps I am overbearing with

My poetry and stuff,

But I have got to keep it flowing

Until the Master says “Enough!”

.

.

This is His will for me, you know.

It is something I must do!

A simple gift from Him to me

I must pass on to you!

.

.

“Neglect not your gift…” He said.

These words to Timothy (1)

Neglect it not!  Despise it not,

And this applies to me.

.

.

What is more, I am to stir it up!

Encourage it and then (2)

I just cannot let it lay around

Must share it with my friend! (3)

.

.

“What is in all this for you?” you ask.

“You will soon be dead and gone.” (4)

Exactly!  Now you know my task

If Jesus tarries long!

.

.

(1) I Timothy 4:14

(2) II Timothy 1:6

(3) Friends, relatives, enemies…

(4) In heaven then my kids, grandkids and great grands

just may get a blessing (or laugh) out of my gift.
