NOT THE BEST PLACE!!!

NOT THE BEST PLACE

 

Adventure follows me

Around, don’t you see…

The car had a flat

On the highway that

Drove me up a tree!

Having gone to the mountains and back,

Without incident or impact…

The confidence gained

Was quickly drained

With the force of an iceberg crack.

A highway service truck came ’round,

Helping me to safer ground…

I changed to the spare

While he went elsewhere,

Only ten minutes late…I found!

THE GOOD LORD PROVIDES

THE GOOD LORD PROVIDES

 

Our coffers emptied by month’s end

With no relief in sight…

We were discouraged by our needs,

Nothing to make them right.

I’d had a flat, put on the spare,

A “donut” with limited time…

No finances left in reserve

While bills continued to climb.

We received hope from a friend

Who sent us a nice check…

Ostensively to reconnect our phone,

It was used when the spare tire wrecked.

Allowing us some breathing time

Until the next payday…

Also cashed out some vacation time,

We could use it right away!!!!

I’m learning to eat less

And save more for bills…

We cannot give the way we’d like,

Unless we change our will.

Provision in survival

With God’s special time…

Learning to manage better,

In His eyes will be fine.
