Just Friends 
(friendly advances…gone wrong.)

Happy is a great way to be. 
Being saved is so true. 
It lifts the heart, 
and makes one want to sing, 
and makes others think
you are crazy. 

When saying things, 
“Hello”, 
“Goodbye”, 
“How are you today…?”
“May the Lord Bless you always!”

It is not an invitation to a life, 
a misrepresentation of advancement. 
It is a recognition that life, 
is short, and should be cherished, 
shared and celebrated. 
In His name, 
the words on our lips, 
ever a fine whisper, 
always a song of hope. 
Listen closely, 
to make sure you, me, we,
are ever clear in their meaning. 

It is not deeper
than a personal concern
by an expressed individual, 
serving…
as the Lord is always  moving, 
among his children. 
He is unfathomable…
It is not intimate,
by a single person, 
in a way separate from 
His mighty sanctuary. 
He is the reason we gather. 
He is the reason we attend.
Do not read, 
more than is written or expressed, 
by cheerful intent, 
or pleasant smile.
 
Leading a life led by Him, 
nothing short of the greatest, 
blessing… 
found here…
on this dying Earth. 

Happy is a great way to be. 
Pray with your whole heart. 
Be clear, 
as He already knows,
the request…
and,
the answer!

The whole purpose of life is to deepen our connection with the Lord, God-- and to pass that on to our children and/or others. Beautifully expressed, Ann..
