Handwriting on Life's Wall

Describe the purpose and completion of the activities of living ways, their purpose and results of the demands of life's requirements.

Complete Eonnections

A gift must be received to make it a gift.
A book must be read to know its message.
A tool must be used to appreciate its value.
A seed must be planted for it to grow.

Preparations

The crop must be harvested for it to be used.
It is the pruned fruit tree that bears.
It is the berry bush that got tipped to make it branch.
It is through difficulty that prepares us for tomorrow.

Legacy Used

The tree that bears today was planted by another.
The words recorded are not lost beneath the sod.
Is wisdom of those gone before us used in days of yours?
Is the legacy left behind, wise and worthy find?

Evaluate

There are many things to consider in it all.
There is much labor for the hands,
Many things this life demands,
To sail life's ship into tomorrow.
