"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God...." (Romans 8:28)


Once there lived a woman whose name was Esther

She was one who had certainly loved lots of chatting

The best of her many friends was her cousin Lester

There was time she would visit Lester just for a chat


Only she wouldn’t missed out visiting him at Easter

Mostly that’s the time they’d share a drop more wine

However Lester holds great confidence in the Divine

And he was always ready to lecture on the Scriptures


Then he’d preach to anyone who’d listen to a lecture

And with a drink Esther will listens to the Scriptures

Therefore to avoid lots of foolish chatting from Esther

And seeing as Lester is a cultivator of the grapevines


He was never short of having a little wine in the house

Yet there were certain times when he’d let alone drinking

Not so for Esther, she wasn’t keen on learning Scriptures

Although she’d visit regularly, it was mainly for the wine


What’s good, the wine makes Esther more easily incline

To listens to the inspired words by Christ Jesus the Divine

And so whenever Lester is going to teach her Scriptures

He would’ve used a little wine from his own grapevines


Sadly drinking had left Esther a thing to remember

As once when she was at Lester’s home, drinking

It seemed on that special day she wasn’t quite herself

For she had bumped her arm on a wall in the hall


Then a picture’s frame having tacks into it fell….

She had accidentally stepped upon one of the tacks

The very one by which old picture’s frame was fixed

Stepping on the tack gave Esther's foot quite a fester

It made her more careful when she went visiting Lester

As it reminded her that she shouldn’t just drink and chat

Instead she should be prepared to absorb the Scriptures

Which Lester is trying to teach her, God is more than wine


Everyone needs to listen to God’s word mostly at Esther time

Given that, for many people, it’s the Holiest time of the year

When more than ever everyone should be giving God a praise

Take advice, seek Him in faith, there are blessings for the meek


He is the helper of the humble; He is the strength of the weak

Indeed both Esther and Lester are departed a long time ago

Yet God’s Holy Easter seasons still come about year after year

Therefore you need to make this coming Easter your best ever


Remember Esther and Lester how they had shared the Scriptures

Then how about you finding a friend to share few of God’s words

Try it at this Holy Easter’s seasons there is reason for blessing

Take a little advice, give God thanks and praise, Happy Easter.
