Values--By Lanette Kissel--United States


We can have the blessings of living
in a land of milk and honey,
that have nothing to do with
the accumulation of money.

There are values that cannot
be measured in a dollar amount.
Love of God and country, home and family,
are the values that count.

If we find that heavenly values
with our earthly ones collide…
Remember that what we really need
our Father in Heaven will provide.

  1. Wonderful poem Lanette. There are things you cannot put a price on that are more valuable in life. Thanks for a great reminder. Yes, money is necessary but the LOVE of money can consume a person. Our Heavenly Father always provides for those who trust Him. God bless, Chris~

  2. Lanette, I loved your beautiful poem. It is so true that Heavenly values can bring us to a land flowing with milk and honey. I know that what we focus on comes back to us twice fold. Thank you for once again sharing your wonderful talent.
