Examples


An ode to the late great Janet Lillian Armstrong entitled, “Examples.”




I’m in love with a man named Jesus,
Because a woman named Janet loved me
He loved me first through her care
A root that sprung into my now deep belief
Surely not perfection, but walked in the right direction
She led me to the One who could lead me to perfection


I’m in love with the One called Christ
Because one woman loved Him too
She allowed Him to transform her life
Now I know I will make it through
Surely not perfection, but walked in the right direction
Proverbs everyday give me wisdom and discretion


I can’t stop chasing after my Father
Because my mother desired Him like no one else
She showed me that there is none like Him
And now I want that joy for myself!
Surely not perfection, but walked in the right direction
She showed me that mistakes are just ways to learn a lesson


I’m in love with a man named Jesus
Because a woman named Janet loved me
She taught me sometimes you have to stand by yourself
And trust that in Christ you have been set free!
Surely not perfection, but walked in the right direction
So just stop stressing and just walk into your blessing!
