What Have I Learned?

What have I learned by being in jail?
By doing my time, not leaving on bail?
I've learned that no matter how far we may roam,
Our Father makes sure that His children come home.

You see, He hadn't heard from me in a while.
And to neglect Him in prayer just wasn't my style.
So when He checked up on the places I'd been,
He figured it's time now to wash away sin.

(1) Harmonic Wealth Enthusiast says:

Great! Though I haven’t been writing poetry, I have been introspecting a fair bit these days, too. I have been a huge fan of James Rayís material since I first heard him speak a few years ago. Heís the author of The Science of Success, which helped me get my second business started two years ago, but I am even more excited about his newest book, Harmonic Wealth. Iíve attended the Harmonic Wealth Weekend twice now and I am so grateful that James wrote a book about the ideas that he teaches in the weekend.

Harmonic Wealth is about being wealthy in all areas of your life and not just working to be rich or successful. Iíve done pretty well in business all of my life, but until learning about the idea of Harmonic Wealth, I never paid much attention to my spirituality. I canít even tell you what a difference meditation has made for my life. Iím healthier, happier, and I just hired five new employees. I swear that I never realized how successful I could be until I starting paying some attention to the other areas of my life. Now Iím making even more money and stressing less. Harmony in ALL AREAS.
