Day # 23 in my A – Z series on “What Makes Me Happy?”
This election week
Winning isn’t everything
Though it may seem so
What “W” word makes me happy?
You may be thinking winning
Is a natural choice, but it’s not.
Not if winning means isolation and sinning.
Not if building a fortress
To keep others out
Is the winning ticket
To show what we’re about.
I want to wash the deceit and greed
Out of this world of mine.
We need some soap and water
To help our spirits shine.
I need to share clear and pure water
With friends both near and far.
Fresh water makes me happy.
Come, fill your empty jar.

Just love one another!!
And how can we tell who’s telling the truth? How can we know who’s being honest? Each talks from his/her own understanding, right? Each tells his/her own truth. Are there any absolutes these days?
So, lie detector test results aren’t allowed in court, huh? So that means you don’t have to take one?
So, the FBI doesn’t draw conclusions, huh? So that means you should not ask them to investigate?
So, one side points fingers at the other side. And nobody believes anybody else any more.
What is Truth anyway?
You’ve been told many times
That you have to love yourself
Before you can freely give
Love to someone else.
Well, toss that idea away.
It’s a lie – it’s pure deceit.
If that’s an idea you cling to,
You’re headed for defeat!
The love you have to give
Did not come from yourself.
It came from your divine Maker.
He gifted you with this wealth.
You were made in His image.
You were loved from the very start.
You have love that’s overflowing
From your Heavenly Father’s heart.
Accept with joy the unconditional gift.
Then pass it on to all you meet.
You’ll find by giving back that love,
Love is a two-way street.
I love you, dear and precious reader.
I love that you came to visit.
I freely give my love to you…
Pass it on!
Self-love’s not a prerequisite.
