Its alright to have fun but don't let fun have you. Fun can seize, overwhelm, and embarrass you. Seldom is a fool the same after fun fingers a score of lasting sour notes for those you entertained. Have fun and have a limit for such.
Raise your right hand and upon me place the other hand. Do recognize what I am beneath your hand. I am the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Never mind me though?
Outside Christ, I'd have none left. Even on the nine hundred and ninety-nine before this one, yet there is still one left. Thinner becomes the air as I prepare to transition from life to there. I have to put off this flesh.
They gather like puddles, hoping to make a splash. Attention seekers chattering to disturb those who dash on intently on their course. They travel in packs together making sure they move together like fish in schools. Now in the lifecycle there is a complainer who is the chief consumer of complainers. Hurry whale open wipe to relieve us of this vicious circle of life that embellishes trash, mess and trife.
Without being profane, what are you saying? No problem when you split a few or butcher a verb or two. But to hear profanity laced dialogue all the time, works on my yes my nerves. I'm not concerned about what I used to do because I know that you learned the same thing that I learned too.

Which one prevails
Heads or tails
Mine or His
Fail to obey,

Closer now to your last breath
Disobey, pay today.

Which will will rule your day?
