"It Could've Been You"

We buried  a wonderful lady today and it all seemed so lonely and gray.

It seems so little in this moment to say; so many too often feel this way.

There's a young lady so destitute to prostitute, to throw her life away.

 There's a little boy left alone, to cry without reason but to wonder why.

There's a young girl heavy with child, becoming more confused all the while.

There's a young family that met a gravel truck head on, on  such a cheery day.

If only they had only known, how quickly each curtain our life does play.

You've missed many a good break in this life you're living through.

But, you've missed so many bad ones too, giving another day brand new.

A family sits laughing at the table with a special love they share.

They burst out in joy with a love that should never be rare.

Who is that man nailed and bleeding on that ruggedcross a tree?

Why would he die in such agony and give his life and love for me?

It could have been you and yes, it could've been me.

It could've been you; so seek the love of God in all that you do.

Written by Bob Wood

 Matthew 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  34  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

I've been given a special gift today  It was just yesterday I sat and talked for a while with one I so admired and loved  In a short moment of time it seemed we were placing her in a grave  I know so much it seems in this life goes wrong and it feels right to spend our time to understand and fix it all but I've learned to avoid as much as possible within me, to become too burdened with this  When you see a heart that is broken; love it  There will always be folks that do not even like themselves and for sure will not like you  Find a friend and love them  Find an enemy and pray for them  Live today as it is your first and could be you last  We live in a world so often misunderstood but we have God Who always understands  May God Really Bless You  Keep shining and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance; you pray for me
