THE POET'S CORNER #8
BEAUTIFUL OR SEX?
Beauty brings out who you are;
sexy hides everything great about you.
Beauty draws people to your heart; sexy draws them to your body.
Beauty leaves someone awestruck; sexy leaves him lustful.
Beauty makes people mystified; sexy makes them imagine.
Beauty takes their breath away;
sexy takes away their good judgment.
Beauty is both inside and outside; sexy only goes skin deep.
Beauty makes them think about the person; sexy makes them think
only of the body.
Beauty makes people think about your hear dreams, your goals;
sexy makes them think about you without clothes.
Beauty is innocent and pure; sexy screams "experience."
Beauty makes them think about who you'll be someday; sexy makes
them think about what you can give them right now.
Beauty makes people notice God's hand; sexy makes them forget why
He created us.
Beauty gives glory to our Creator; sexy takes away from who He
Beauty reflects the love of Jesus;
sexy hides what His amazing love and salvation can do.
Which do you choose to pursue?

Future's glass is dark and dim, shadowing my each attempt.
In wondering what lies ahead the glass is lifeless,
The mirror of the past I've trod, is bright and clear, a perfect
map, of every sin, mistake and fall, to every worldly trap.
Blind me to the road that lies behind me,
Lead me down the path that lies ahead,
So when I reach the end of all my journeys,
Your Word will be the only map I've read.
