A Treasured Line

Truth, fact and reality are found by filtering what we read and hear through the sieve of research, reasoning, and finding reality. It is then we have the treasured line to share.

Filtered Facts

Is what we have been told and read
And what we heard someone said
Considered fact, a reality, and true
And was it said unto whom?

The Address

To whom is the message addressed to?
Was it a bill on an amount due?
Did someone share instructions with you?
It may have been for you to do.

Ages Old Or Now

What we read and what we hear
We must be sure to filter here.
Was it addressed to me and you?
Is it for this age, and for us to do?

Era Of Another Time

Read the address on the envelope.
If it says to me or you, there is hope.
Is it instruction for our time?
Was it for another age, or time, or line?

The Quality Test

Weigh thoughts on the scale of reality.
Do they hold a worthy quality?
Will they stand the test of ages to come
Or lapse from memory and be gone?

Find Another Mind

To Preserve, we share with care.
Send the treasured lines everywhere.
Let wisdom be a precious find.
Let it enrich and nourish another mind.


Facr, Filter, Reality, Share, True, Weigh

I kindly thank you.. It was written thinking of what we were told about the Bible,
Must read it ourselves.
