VEGAS

They call this ďSin City", with many blinding lights,
And everywhere you turn, there's something for your eyes.
As I drove down the street, that's so open and wide
The blue sky welcomed me, Oh, this is paradise!

The towering hotels, the casinos and malls,
So many shows to watch with discounted coupons
Most people spend their time in front of slot machines
Others are having fun playing the poker games.

But as for me, Iíll rather look around,
Or eat sumptuous buffet with coupons 2 for one;
I would rather watch shows that impersonates Elvis,
And sit side by side with "Elvis clone" himself.

I am not for gambling, youíll say Iím such a bore
Iíll rather watch gamblers as they win, as they lose
I compare it to life with many twists and turns,
Whatever future brings, itís hard for us to know.

Like Vegas our own life is full of distractions
Whatís pleasing to our eyes may not be good at all,
The world will entice us, itís up for us to choose
Weíre given a free will, whether to win or lose.

In this big game called Life, Iím old enough to know,
That the fear of the Lord is the greatest of all
When I do it my way, Iíll surely apt to fail,
But I am a winner, when I follow Godís will.

Gloria, Great observations and great writing. I know that I've tried it my way and God's way is best. You can go to New Orleans or Vegas and walk as Christ would. It is totally up to choices. I am glad to have you as my sister and friend. You are a blessing.

Gloria... This says it all: "Weíre given a free will, whether to win or lose." Keep inspiring others to 'win' through Jesus Christ! You live your life for Him, Gloria, and others see it every time they connect with you, either in person or through your writing. You are a great blessing to all of us! With love, SiS Peggy
