' The Family Life'


Family is a basic unit in society
created through love and integrity
nowadays families are breaking apart
one can predicts the demise such part.

Family today is loaded with adversities
frustrations emanate from social difficulties
lack of job security, or single-parent dilemmas
imminent divorce breaks troubled families in mass.

The origin of marriage had exalted family union
the Creator of humanity declared such dominion
'What God has put together let no man put asunder'
humans were created to glorify the Creator yonder.

God had brought Adam and Eve in harmony
'husband and wife should stick in matrimony
the pursuit of life-styles violate the accord
violates the standard set by the Almighty Lord!

Greed for material things are the worse single threat
to family life because it gets in destroys relationships
drains most family of quality time, and innate camaraderie
if only God is made the center in the family there shall glory!

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
