    Was listening intently to what has been said.
    Have my own interpretations rolling around
    in my head.
    Of what is relevant and important and valid.
    And most of us running around chasing money
    like we rabid.
    Don't get mad , I know we got to have it.
    But don't forget , that it's not everything.
    So listen to this "Sum of Purpose that this
    poetess would like to sing!

    Getting up every morning with a prayer in your
    heart.
    Thanking a creator is a powerful start.
    Recognizing that the struggle rages on.
    As you put on your Gucci and Versace and
    brush that hair that's not your own.
    Plan to do something for someone just because.
    Don't get mad at me, it was apart of God's laws.
    Going to work with a good attitude, taking time
    to thank the Janitor , the food service people
    and trying not to be rude.

    Coming home with the knowledge that your job
    is not done. Have you sought anyone out who
    is lonely, or a soul have you won? Pick up the
    phone or visit a neighbor, sit on the porch and
    the sunshine you savor. Count each blessing
    and each loss, realize, the "Sum of your Purpose"
    and tally up the cost. It didn't cost you anything
    when you waved hello to that child, it's doesn't
    cost you anything to give away a smile.

    Premise and Purpose, and Strategize all you want
    they mean nothing if you don't move to action
    and leave no stone unturned, til you have learned
    that forgiveness, is not for the other person, it is
    for you. That lifes purpose is not about the job that
    you do. But, about the love that you give and the
    life that you live. And when burdened with regret
    makes you bitter and cold, then reach out to some
    one and you will find a comforting soul. God never
    leaves us alone , to battle this war until we go
    home. But chastise his children he must, when we
    live our lives in total disgust. No trust, just us, no
    peace, just strife, no gain, just vain, no sharing
    just blaming, no giving just taking, no sowing
    just harvest...
    WHAT IS THE SUM OF YOUR PURPOSE?

    Wow, this is so thought provoking, and RIGHT ON in purpose!!! Very much needed and very well said. With the right purpose in mind and heart none of us should have much strife, but we do get side tracked so easily. This is a necessary read and re-read.
