HOW to live

Honest
Truth with self
Truth with God
For nothing can be concealed from Him

Open
Be open to His Will
And open to the changes
He calls you to make in yourself

Willing
To be a better you
For love of God
To be a light in His world

    Hard to fathom Ellen, that one's concept mind would omit, "Truth with self" Much more "Truth with God For nothing can be concealed from Him" But folks do lie to themselves and take the lower road concept to death every day! Congratulations, Ellen, on your second place, a great rendition of my contest theme. Agape, Moses
