Bent metal in free flow and form

With an internal combustion “mill,”

Has interested many a man or boy

With its style or squeal-tire storm

Watching, hearing it, gave a thrill.


Cars whether customized or fast,

May not have or hold your attraction.

What worldly thing has brought you equal joy?

Riveted you in present or past,

Grabbed your time and attention?

Man and his fine female, life’s mate,

Travel, scrimp, even have small strife,

Fascinated by small or larger toy,

And sadly find out when its too late,

Tinsel and fluff stole their whole life.

Stop! Eternity calls us soon –

Heaven’s hope or hell’s dread await,

Don’t be fooled by any devilish decoy,

Do far more than hunt or be a loon,

Think honestly – it’s a good trait.

Full salvation – yours and others

Can be real, if you repent now.

True, holy living you can now enjoy.

Your present act may save your brothers,

Bible reading will tell you how.

God does not hate fast or neat cars;

Many a hobby is not sin.

But metals or man-made alloy,

Can’t compare with life beyond the stars,

The heaven – God would like you in.

Holiness Family?

There are three outward measurements of a holiness family

(NOT referring to new converts):

1) What they look like on vacation, 2) How the daughters dress as they enter puberty,

3) The wedding – daughter’s appearance, as Dad walks her down the aisle.
