Retirement

Teaching
Class
English
Teenagers
Doors slams shut
Bells ring for the last time.
Directions?
Time?
Questions?
Decisions?
Uncertainty?
The term
Retirement
Looms in the shadows
Its face no definition.
Boundaries?
Guidelines?
I hear God's soft small whisper
Brushing past my ear,
It's Ok, we'll figure this out
Together.

Lemonade Please

                                                                                                                                         
The purchase of our first home was a charm
No money down and very affordable payments
We learned well, and were never alarmed or harmed
But we were disappointed by delays in street pavements

Our second home purchase required a co-investor
Their family and mine were happy and well pleased
Our prayers were heard and answered by our creator
Credit was good; loan was approved; and no one was deceived

The purchase of our third home was the result of very hard work
We had a family business; and my wife and I also had regular jobs
Fifteen years rushed by, and then the national economy began to hurt
We were forced to sale our home at a loss; our 401-K's were simply robbed

By God's Grace, we remained faithful to Him, to our family, and to our church
By God's Wisdom, we paid down the debt, retired early, and avoided the worse
