The Servant

Romans 12:10-13
"Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer; contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality." 

Another great book to read!    Improving Your Serve  by Chasrles R. Swindoll

Poem from 2009

Sometimes taken for grated,
Often spoken without thought,
Rarely ever meaningful,
Likely to be up-building they are not.

How great a damage a thoughtless word can do,
Even those with a meaning I  never meant them to.

I wish that they had not been spoken,
Oh how those words I  regret,
Though they seemed fine at the time,
I  now desire to forget. 
Lord teach me how to tame my tongue,
And how to say what’s right,
So that all of those I meet each day,
Will see your reflected light.
