    The Art Of Living

    Love is such a big part
    In learning the art of living
    It's more than just receiving
    It also involves the giving

    The willingness to listen
    Would go a long long way
    If we were more attentive to what was spoken
    Than knowing what to say

    I like the fact that I can worship
    In any way I choose
    It's a gift we sometimes take for granted
    And often times abuse

    Not every country in this world
    Has our prosperity
    So take the time to thank the Lord
    For all our liberties

    Always stand up for your values
    Not to many people do
    We would rather be a follower
    Than share our point of view

    Right choices are not always easy
    You may find yourself alone
    But true friends will never leave you
    When their actions you condone

    Remember to appreciate your children
    And the rest of those you love
    They were given to you as a gift
    From your heavenly father above

    Teach them all your wisdom
    Give them all your praise
    The most important  lesson you can teach
    Is to teach them how to pray

    This is the art of living
    It's possible if we try
    Just put our trust in God above
    And by his laws abide

    To live our lives in harmony
    Is what we should pursue
    The world would be a better place
    If only this we choose

    Lonewolf, another beautiful poem that touched my heart. I feel the same. I wish more did.

    I love the thought behind this poem and you are truly a great poet/lyricist ( I say that because it seems a lot of your work posted is a song or could be a song)

    Glad I came to visit. I'm no artist and I live as best as I know God gives me the wisdom to. I have this time on Op to minister to those who are hurting, as evidenced by the words in their poetry. This poem is a goldmine of wisdom and exhortation! very glad you wrote it!



    thanks for the kind words and encouragement.

    So much sound advice and wonderful bits of wisdom are presented here.This poem like so many of your others is very inspiring and uplifting and reveals to me that you are a kind hearted soul with a beautiful philosophy on life.I really love reading your poems.



    Hopefully I "got it right", and can inspire others to take action

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
