I liked the old paths when Moms were at home. Dads were at work. Brothers went into the army. And sisters got married BEFORE having children!
Crime did not pay; Hard work did, And people knew the difference.
Moms could cook; Dads would work; Children would behave.
Husbands were loving; Wives were supportive, And children were polite.
Women wore the jewelry, And Men wore the pants.
Women looked like ladies; Men looked like gentlemen, And children looked decent.
People loved the truth And hated a lie.
They came to church to get IN, Not to get OUT!
Hymns sounded Godly; Sermons sounded helpful; Rejoicing sounded normal, And crying sounded sincere.
Cursing was wicked; Drugs were for illness.
The flag was honored; America was beautiful, And God was welcome!
We read the Bible in public; Prayed in school; And preached from house to house.
To be called an American was worth dying for; To be called an American was worth living for; To be called a traitor was a shame!
I still like the old paths the best!
Meditation: Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. – Revelation 2:4
You will succeed because Jesus loves You!
