(998) Live-Love-Laugh (3 Acrostics)


Live (Acrostic)

Love this world and appreciate all the gifts of the Lord.
Interest yourself with HIs children at home and in far away places.
Violence is never the answer to any situation.
Empty any dark thoughts from your heart and sleep well.


Love (Acrostic)

Living a life with love is a life worth living.
Opening your heart to another is a sign of giving.
Vengeance has no place in a loving heart.
Enter a relationship with a fresh start.


Laugh (Acrostic)

Laughing is a good remedy for any illness.
Always try to find the time to laugh and feel good.
Under no circumstances allow yourself to become depressed.
Gallop away from those who want to bring you down.
Have fun and enjoy each and every day.

    Mel, I wish I could give you a 10 for each of these 3 Acrostics, but sadly I can't. Each one stands out with a truth we should all try to live by. Great work my friend and thanks for sharing them.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
