The Winner

© Ann Lively
our family isn't perfect,
although some people say we are.
we have our share of ups and downs,
but I think we are by far
the luckiest family for health,
not wealth, or even a new car,
but putting it in golfing terms,
I think we're hitting par.
as the Lord is our model for our living,
the most important thing we can do,
is go through life just giving.
our love, our kindness, our support
to everyone around us,
so when we get to heaven's door,
there will be no fuss.
the Lord will say come in,
and at last we win!
