"My Roots Run Deep"

I was a sharecropper's kid and quite proud, of life shared for some not soon allowed.

We had no bathrooms or water inside, but a tiny home with love applied.

Summers were hot and the winters cold, for we were three with riches untold.

We were poor but did not know, for love in our hearts did warmly glow.

With life most full but not through yet, we left that place and went in debt.

Life is everchanging up and down each life's hill, but sharecropping days I remember still.

Through all this life my roots run deep, yet that part of life my heart will keep.

Written by Bob Wood

Ecclesiastes 1: 5..The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose...6..the wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about to the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits...7..All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

Some today say they do not attend church as adults because their parents made them go as a child..I am glad to inform them that story will not hold up under investigation.. If their parents made them wear clothes will they go naked as adults, or better yet; were they made to take a bath?. Did they order them to not play in the road?. Will they play in the road as adults?. The devil and the world wants to convince you, that someone else is responsible for your sins.. They say if you were sexually abused as a child then you most likely will do the same.. The truth is, if you've been abused, you most certainly can turn that horrible event in your life into being the most caring, loving parent the world ever knew.. Today remember where you came from.. Glean the most good you can from every situation you've been through.. You will surely get the privilege to help another with the knowledge and love you've gained..Also remember if you are a Christian, you are going to heaven.. You are on a journey.. As you travel, drink in as much love and God's grace as you can.. Jesus Christ turned the most negative cross into the positive resurection.. According to the world's theory of mankind, when Christ arose, He would have gone about crucifying all along the way, but He didn't.. Have a Great Day and May God Really Bless You!
