Body then Spirit!



From the moment,
Of birth.
From our first breath,
On this earth.

We begin a journey
Of development and growth,
Body, then spirit,
An evolution of both.

We never stay,
What we were.
For growth demands change,
In who we are.

Age brings change,
To our physical man.
But for our spirit to grow,
Maturity...

must be our plan.

Not sitting pat,
And resting on grace.
But going on with God,
And finding our place.

Not giving up,
When the winds get rough.
But being willing to go higher,

that my brethren...
births the growth in all us!

Hi John, just had a look at your latest poem and it is so true, He changes us despite ourselves. This and Precious Time are so true to the Christian walk. God Bless, Mike.
