I'm living on Easy Street. I should be reading the bible more. I know things just seem to go better when I do. I should be praying more too. Seems when I'm praying God is guiding my steps, and I end up in the right place. But nah, I'm living on Easy Street.
I'm living on Easy Street. I should be doing regular devotions with my kids. They seem to be more obedient and get along better when I do. But it's summer time! We're on vacation. And I'm living on Easy Street.
I'm living on Easy Street. I should be more guarded in my speech. I should honor and esteem my husband with my words, not tear him down. But gosh, that requires so much work. I have to watch what I say, think before I speak. Nah, I'm living on Easy Street.
You know, things are getting pretty hard on Easy Street. It's not as Easy as it looks. It ends up being more work on Easy Street (in the long run) than it was living on Easy Street in the first place.
So neighbor, have you been living on Easy Street? As for me, I guess I better get moving...off of Easy Street.
