The Fifty Cent Tour

like a prophet

when you speak
let it be your tongue that is on fire
and not your pants
may your words
ignite positive action
positively
may your actions
show deep love and concern for your brother
always
starting right here
after services
in the parking lot

Peace ~ Rene

  2. In the winter, i like to think that when I don't wear a coat my body is burning calories. Our school secretary and I tease each other that "if anyone wants me, I'll be out in the parking lot-losing weight."

    i like how you
    whisper a lesson,
    and how it hits squarely.

    yea, Rene!

  8. Ditto! It's important to pracice what you preach (or heard preached) because all too many folks go to church and as soon as they're out the door, the gossip starts!

    Have a great weekend, Renee :-)
