My Apologies… this started out to be a short poem, but the haunting look in the eyes of those little girls from the 1930s drove me into a political rant. I have seen too many people of today lose what they have worked a lifetime for…we are not talking people with addiction problems and chose to live that lifestyle, but people who have worked hard all of their lives.

My rant is only an expression of hope in mankind…for we are to love everyone like there is no tomorrow…again, My apologies…Allen



Give To Those In Need

 

They came in droves seeking a new land; a new start.

Wearing only the clothes on their back, they dared to dream.

Yet to look upon those faces, to see those eyes robbed of hope,

Makes me wonder…WHY...

 

That was 75 years ago!

 

Where was the love; where was the compassion for these souls?

Were we more self serving then than we are today…I think not.

For today there are millions who have been forced from their homes.

The poor are growing at an alarming rate and we look the other way.

 

Are we to just look the other way; or we to pretend that they do not exist?

NO…we are to give, and not just of our money, but of our time as well.

Some may say, “I’M just getting by myself, how can I give”?

YOU JUST DO IT…I do, and if I can, so can you.

 

It does not have to be much…and I promise; you will get it back many times over.

If you can’t give money; then give of your time, show your heart, and show your love.

Give without expecting anything in return…give as giving unto the Lord.

 

Too many hard working families stand on the threshold of disaster…and some of us check or worry about or stock portfolios.

Take time to LOVE TRUE…for true love is the perfect gift that will always survive.

We are not promised tomorrow, and there are not any banks or stock markets in Heaven, or Hell.

 

Someone once said, “Give until it hurts”, that still stands true today.

For we as creations of GOD are to give, and to give without thought for self.

And self is the hardest thing that we have to face in this temporal journey.

Life is short…VERY short…and “but by the grace of God, there go I”

 

James: 5-9

5Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

7Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. 9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

People need to be helping ALL who struggle, not just the children; there are plenty of adults or Veterans who could use a helping hand, not to mention, those who live with disabilities every day, like I do! GREAT rant; I hear you....Sad!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

YOU ARE OF COURSE RIGHT BUT GIVING IS A WAY OF LIFE THAT HAS TO BE 'LEARNED' AND IT HAS COME FROM THE HEART...ONE CANNOT BE FORCED INTO IT. THANK GOD FOR POEPLE LIKE YOU WHO DO GIVE AND IT TAKES 'APPEALS' SUCH AS THIS TO 'AWAKEN' THE UNDERSTANDING OF THOSE WHO DON'T FEEL THEY CAN. THE REWARDS OF GIVING IS GREAT...THE FEELING OF KNOWING THAT YOU ARE SOMEHOW MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN SOME SMALL WAY CANNOT BE COMPARED TO ANYTHING BUT, AS I SAID, EACH ONE HAS TO REACH THE PLACE OF GIVING ON THEIR OWN. THIS IS A GREAT WRITE...DONE WELL, WITH A STRONG, TIMELY MESSAGE. THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS YOU. JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Sadness in these lines - the dreams of many squelched because man says they can't - God says they can - in different ways, perhaps, but who are we to judge? Just give them a chance, a nudge, and just watch what can be accomplished.

Beautifully penned compassion, (((Allen))). Would that the rest of mankind learn the lessons written within these lines - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

everyone can do their part and i think that for the most part, people do-the giving just looks different for some than just $
