Visits from old friends for tea

Companions of a childish me

But now, I can new friends invite

Resist evil not, or enemies fight

Four Rs in sequence can be tried

With diligence used and applied

React, review, revalue, reframe

Is how to play with life as game

First impression, “please do come

Let me review where you rose from”

See it from the Lord’s throne view

Revalued makes reactions new.

Rehearsing this for habits changed

Shaped best reactions rearranged

Old friends are asked to go away

New lingering ones allowed to stay


Lord – forgive me Thy foolish child who wastes the use of the gifts of precious moments. Grant that I may, in the now, play this loving game with Thee of replacing the old playmates with the new.
