The busyness of life is like a merry-go-round. If we're not careful, it can rob us of health and strength. What we need to do is...ah, shucks, if I tell you, you won't read the, have a little read. Then tell us what you think about this busyness.




h. lena jones



Day in day out

Like a merry-go-round

Hear the roar of engines

See headlights and tail-lights

Travers highways and byways

Rushing madly to destinations near and far

Overhead planes flit across sometimes cloudy sky

Like birds migrating from country to country

Seaports, train, and bus stations

Exhibit the same busyness

Throngs of serious people

Charging to and fro

Like foot soldiers

On parade!


This busyness

If we’re not careful

Can ruin precious family time

And rob us

Of our day of rest

Where praise and worship

Is bound to replenish

Our weary soul!


So, take time off to

Rest and replenish; enjoy

The wonders of God’s creation

While there’s still strength

And breath to do so!


“…for in six days the Lord

made heaven and earth…

and on the seventh day He rested,

and was refreshed.”

(Exodus 31:17)

Right you are! A couple of years ago we too realized that precious time we could spend with our children was stolen by careers, now no one but the ones we care about gets too much of it anymore.

Amen, Sister! Excellent poetry! Busy-ness is often confused with service, too........and they are lightyears apart!

A fine cup you give to us this evening, Miss Lena...I love your choice of topics, and Scriptures, and your particular style of presentation...but more than all of this, I love you!...

Dearly! God bless, Rhonda

You are so right! I got caught up in that BUSYness! It did cost me my health. But the Lord spared my life. This gives me an opportunity to answer your comments about my poem, "Isn't Hate Awful. This is a part of the busyness thing, too. Anything that makes me change my plans becomes an enemy to me.
God Bless,
