These Are The Things

A joyous smile

A long embrace

Piggy back rides

As we run the race

Of life.


Off key voices

Hiking a cliff

Staying up late

As we talk and laugh 

For hours.


Memories are

What build a life,

And through the years

I see what makes my

World shine.


Sharing love and

Teaching the truth,

This is what I’m 

Created to do

For life.


Saving a soul


Leading a class

Of students ready

To learn.


Keeping a cat, 

Meeting with friends,

Living abroad, and 

Giving my all to



Reading God’s word,

Praying each day,

Loving the Lord 

Is the only way

I thrive.


These are the things

That use my time

These are the things 

That make my life worth
