To be slow to speak what's on my mind,
to trust in God's perfect time.
I've learned to love not hate and to be so kind,
and to endure the tough times.
I've learned that Love is the perfect gift,
that Jesus truly did die for our sins.
I've learned that the pain I've had to endure truly helped me to mature,
that kids are a true blessing from up above, so we must not forget to show them love.
I've learned that people come into our lives for a reason and a season,
so we must open up our eyes and receive what they have to teach us.
Yet, the most important thing I've learned is to put God first and to receive his word, for that is the true key to enter into the gates of eternity.
