When You Are Young, The Winds Blow
Rev. Lainie Dowell (c) 2006.
When you are young, the winds blow--
and you don't mind walking down the
rugged, winding paths where winds go.
When you are young, leaves hang low
upon high branches on trees --
and you laugh, as you pass by to
watch them blow in the breeze.
When you are young, the winds in season
are your dear friends --
and you believe every breath you take
When you are young, you reach every
itch on your back to be scratched --
and you don't even mind your jeans
must be patched.
When you are young, summer vacations
come and seem to stay so long --
and, when they end, you feel real strong.
When you are young, Ma and Pa seem
to be oh so slow --
and they just don't understand how much
you think you know.
When you are young, Church is just one
more place to go --
and you vow to stay away from there,
when to adulthood you grow.
Ah, someone once said that ~
"Youth is wasted on the young."
But then how could they have known
their life had only just begun?
Follow the Wind, children.
He alone knows what is to come.
"Train up a child in the way he
or she should go and when
(that one) is old, he or she
shall not depart from it."
God bless and save the little
children, is my heartfelt
prayer in Jesus's name.
I Am Silent Thunder!

P.S. At 7:00 P.M., after I wrote the above piece, I just saw a news report about a mother and father who were arrested in Mexico trying to sell their six children. And their mother is pregnant right now.
The police found five children who were recovered along with their evil parents, but their little girl (18 mos.) is still being searched for in Mexico; and she was possibly sold. I pray that is not the case.
Pray for the safe return of the little baby (18 mos.) and for all her siblings and for all the children who are being brutalized all over this wicked world, with
impunity. This is a continuing outrage.
