Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Proverbs 1:7 NLT

Wisdom and the First Day of School

Some students have already started their first day back after the summer. Today is our first day for the new school year. I offer this poem for thought. Actually, I waited to complete the first bus run to finish my writing for the day.

Just back from the first run.

First Day of School

I’m waiting, holding my mom’s hand
It’s my first day of school
This is all part of the plan
Riding the bus will be cool

My shoes are bright and clean
My clothes make me look good
I think I’m bigger than I seem
I stand straight like I should

The Bus is yellow and big
Around the corner, I see it
My inside is doing a jig
Mom tells me I have to sit

That first step is a big one
The driver says “good morning” to me
Which seat do I sit in?
By the window, so I can see

The bus driver tells me to have a good day
I see my teacher waving at the bus
For me, It will be as good as they say
Why was mom worried about us?

Please don’t be so busy to miss the importance of first experiences. Your words of encouragement frame the focus for the impact of the day. Pause to reflect on the wisest choice of your words. They have the power of life and death.

Blessings Love y’all
