THE OLD PATHS

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

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;
And divorce was unthinkable.

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!

Hi Donna,

That is so true! Life was so much simplier back then too!
How are you? I haven't heard from you in ages!
How do you like KS? Are you all adjusting?
I don't have too much time for the coupons right now. Are you still using them?
God has called me to get behind a ministry called Tears To Treasures. You can check it out: http://www.tearstotreasures.com
That was me at the age of 16. I was not saved, had an abortion, and didn't get healed from that for over 30 yrs! Even though I got saved in my mid twenties, I still was not healed. Well, I am now, Praise the Lord! Now, He has called me to tell others about what He can do in their lives too!
I just thought I would share that with you!
Love You!
Jeanie
