Favorite Quote:
Isaiah 40:31
Those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength, they will run and not be faint, walk and not be weary.


Not yet is what my Daddy said
Those years long ago,
When I asked him about college
And the places I would go.
Not yet is what my momma said
In times of recent past,
When my body like a twig
Was growing very fast.
Not yet is what my friend said
When I said I’d run away.
Stay here and live among us
For just another day.
Not yet is what my teacher said
When I said I’d be like him.
Take it easy, take it slow
Examine every passing whim.
Not yet is what my brother said
The day he left my side.
Where I was left alone
And bitterly I cried.
Not yet is what my heart says
As I stand here all alone.
The fear of growing up
will haunt me till I’m grown.
