What Matters Most

    Isn’t the weather outside, its what you put on
    Isn’t the past, its what you do with the future
    Isn’t the people who hurt you, its what you do with yourself
    Isn’t the he-said she-said of now, its the i-will of tomorrow
    Isn’t the sins you’ve committed, it’s the forgiveness you’re given
    Isn’t the tears you may cry, it’s the ones who dry them
    Isn’t the sickness you can endure, it’s the prayer you held to when you were
    Isn’t the next few steps, it’s the next four thousand days
    Isn’t the worries or doubts, it’s the release of going for it anyway
    Isn’t the ones who took you for granted, it’s the ones who saw you through
    Isn’t the strength you have, it’s the strength God can give you
    Isn’t the lowering your standards, it’s God showing you even higher
    Jordan Thomas/2008

    Romans 5:5 (NIV)
    And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us

I just wanted to share this great poem that was written by my 15 year old.

  2. Thank you…actually it is written by my 15 year old daughter.

    She is an incredible writer.

    I will probably post more of her stuff in the future.
