The Old Path's ~ Anchored In Him

I liked the old paths, when 
Moms were at home. 
Dads were at work. 
Brothers went into the army. 
And sisters got married BEFORE having children ! 

Crime did not pay; 
Hard work did; 
And people knew the difference. 

Moms could cook; 
Dads would work; 
Children would behave. 

Husbands were loving; 
Wives were supportive; 
And children were polite. 

Women wore the jewelry; 
And Men wore the pants. 
Women looked like ladies; 
Men looked like gentlemen; 
And children looked decent. 

People loved the truth, 
And hated a lie; 
They came to church to get IN, 
Not to get OUT! 

Hymns sounded Godly; 
Sermons sounded helpful; 
Rejoicing sounded normal; 
And crying sounded sincere. 

Cursing was wicked; 
Drugs were for illness; 
And divorce was unthinkable. 

The flag was honored; 
America was beautiful; 
And God was welcome! 

We read the Bible in public; 
Prayed in school; 
And preached from house to house 
To be called an American was worth dying for; 
To be called a Christian was worth living for; 
To be called a traitor was a shame! 

Preachers preached because they had a message; 
And Christians rejoiced because they had the VICTORY! 
Preachers preached from the Bible; 
Singers sang from the heart; 
And sinners turned to the Lord to be SAVED! 

A new birth meant a new life; 
Salvation meant a changed life; 
Following Christ led to eternal life. 

Being a preacher meant you proclaimed the word of God; 
Being a deacon meant you would serve the Lord; 
Being a Christian meant you would live for Jesus; 
And being a sinner meant someone was praying for you! 

Laws were based on the Bible; 
Homes read the Bible; 
And churches taught the Bible. 

God was worshiped; 
Christ was extitleed; 
And the Holy Spirit was respected . . .

Church was where you found Christians 
on the Lord's day, rather than in the garden, 
on the creek bank, on the golf course, 
or being entertained somewhere else. 

I still like the old paths the best!

Take your direction from those who follow God's word ! ! !
