A missing piece of Life

What happen with going to church to 
praise & pray?

stay for afternoon services to seek what 
the pastor have to say. 

Have dinner as a family, like please pass 
the tray. 

We always respected what the elders had 
to say.

When adults was talking kids had to go 
away and play   

Didn't have much but, we  made a way. 
laughing and playing having a wonderful 

When life seemed rough & the going got 
tough we came together with love for one 

Mom-ma & daddy worked so  hard to keep 
their family together.

Your friends would never cross each other 
because we all was like sisters & brothers. 

We didn't have cell phones or internet 
service so we always made away to check 
in on each other.

These are the days we truly had love for 
one another.........................

Laying the Bible down have led us to 
destruction. We have become 
conceited and not praying for one another.
