DREAMERS AND DOERS

DREAMERS AND DOERS

A father, two sons and one request
“would you in my vineyards time and energy invest?”

the first said no, but later thought better and went
the second said yes, but later lost his intent
which of these sons did right – what was meant?

 DREAMER OR DOER—OUR GAME PLAN IN LIFE

Dreams are wonders that have been put in our hearts
wide-spread visions, fanaticizing art off the charts
sadly fantasies no matter how worthy
are futile if no action springs off ambitious journey

DREAMER OR DOER—OUR GAME PLAN IN LIFE

God gives us our visions but requires we further advance
write steps down – take that chance-- your life to enhance
discern and encourage His dreams for your life
His timing—His wisdom… then act without strife

DREAMER OR DOER—OUR GAME PLAN IN LIFE

(Based on Jesus’ parable in Matthew 21:28-32)

    I believe I'm familiar with the story... interesting question in the beginning. The second son seemed eager than doubtful... I think I liked the first sons response better. Thinking about it... then finally deciding to go along with it. Very cool piece!

    i love this kim!! the father & the two sons story hit home w/ me...i've been in those very both spots..intentional and unintentional without realizing..but always end up seeing Gods love and lessons in it all..and to take the time w/ God to see our own intentions to know where we go wrong..to change our hearts and move forward ..thank you for this inspirational write its beautiful!! :)

    I was thinking before I saw the ending that this reminded me of one of Jesus's parables. Its excellent, Kim. And yep...I can see your long hair...NICE.

    Kim, this is amazing. In my opinion, this expresses the exact purpose in life and the use of the parable to compare to God's plan is exceptional creativity. I love this for the inspiration. I am both a doer and a dreamer...need to focus more on being a doer!

    I am A doer, maybe a bad one. I don't like dreaming of life and all it has to offer. I think I suppressed that feeling long ago, so i became a doer, with goals long ago. This is a very good poem and message. Kim,, thank you for all the nice and lovely visits in the past. After seeing and hearing the things that go on in this world, gives me reason to pray and never take my true poet friends for granted. Enjoy the greatest people and things in life. Have yourself a wonderful and lovely Mother's Day. Lots of Luv & Hugs *LINDA
