Pass the Test

These days of summer seem so long
The sun just seems to linger on
And when the final rays are gone
I lay my head to rest

When I awake to skies so hazy
I think the day will turn out lazy
To try and work outside is crazy
So I sit in my house

But in those times when body rests
My mind will try to pass the test
Being turned to God is best
To grow in Him each day

So even when my body rests
My Spirit will rejoice
For this is time that I can spend
In praise with lifted voice

In response to the daily prompt

Summer Favorite

There’s nothing much that I like more than root beer floats in summer
The ice cream and the drink go hand in hand
I must be careful every time
I make one of these drinks sublime
That froth does not too drastically expand

For there’s no substance in the froth that builds up rather quickly
Then slowly shrinks back down into place
I may enjoy the frothy taste
But soon it all will dissipate
My root beer float will fill its rightful space

This world is full or froth in all the various ideas
Of how eternal life can be attained
One thing I know is true
Jesus must be Lord of you
If hell you will avoid and heaven gain
