If I might be so bold
Try to remember what youíve been told
Be the good fertile ground
For the seeds sown that are sound

Thereís no need to be full of fear
Thereís one who will dry all your tears
Leaving confusion and the confused behind
Itís time to enjoy your renewed mind

Let go of being angry and sad
Time for the good, goodbye to the bad
Letting go of those things in the past
Lay hold of those things that will last

Itís embarrassing the way we forget
The ultimate payment of our debt
Instead of living like our example
His grace we often trample

Always looking for the happy pill
Needing more and more frills
To achieve the place we call joy
Mostly traps placed to be decoys

Forgetting the power of the blood
When the evil one comes like flood
Being confident of that one thing
His love for you, you can cling

In that you should not be surprised
His love for you is easily surmised
For God so loved the world, He gave,
He went all the way to the grave.

LOL, this is a little journey through all of the emotions that we've done this quarter! What fun!

Quite clever! Very good poem which included the many topics we wrote about this quarter. Unique.
