Tying Strings

Relationships we have on earth
are very important things,
that must be nurtured, nourished
and tied with many strings.

First and foremost must be
our relationship with God,
that must be tied securely
while through this life we trod.

Spending daily time in prayer
and reading God’s Word helps assure
the line to our Creator
grows more and more secure.

Next would come our family
the ones we hold so dear.
May we engage in thoughts and deeds
to ever draw them near.

Having quality time, selfless acts of service
affirming words that we impart,
these are just a few things
that aid in bonding each heart.

Then we have our friends
that may prosper or be in need.
May our presence in their lives be a cord
that helps them to succeed.

Finally, our neighbors, associates,
in essence, the rest of the world,
are looking for a line of hope
from some caring soul to be hurled.

If we allow God to use us
to meet the needs we see,
more strings of love could be tied
Through our generosity.

Wow! Now, this is my kind of poem--meaningful, touching, smoothly flowing, and rhymed and metered! I'll add this one to my favorites, Carol! Janice
