Good morning, everyone. BYDWP.

Did you ever stop to really think about the lovingkindness of God? If you did, you would discover that it knows no bounds. You would discover that it is strong in that it chastises, protects, trains (prepares), and cares. You would discover that it employs tough love to rid us of some undesirable habits while molding us and instilling lacking habits and attributes within us. You would discover that, just like the sloop shown in the acrostic poem in today's  poetry heading, it can be the boat that keeps us from drowning in a sea of hurt and sin. You would rejoice like the Psalmist in the 23rd, in that you would find untold peace, joy, and consolation within. You would learn to say and sing with rejoicing, "Yes Lord, Your will and Your way!" You would find that you could sail past the island of pain and never hear its Sirens call again. And lastly, you would find yourself singing and humming that old song that says, "If anybody has a reason to sing, I do!"


 Poetry Pondering/Musing
What is the significance of the various colors displayed in the poem?

God's lovingkindness for some folk, is like a diamond in the rough because they never bother to look for it.
