"The Sun Goes Down"
The sky does squint and the sun goes down but with the day ahead, it does not frown.
The day melts in colorful hue as another day has come due.
The eyes of nature begin to drowse, as peace begins gently to arouse.
The sun did rise and this day had stormy skies and it had sorrow with many sighs.
This day had pain and it had rain but with these tears we have gain.
The sun goes down so now close your eyes, as tomorrow will bring different skies.
Whether it be blue or it be gray; you will have yet another day.
You may be alone or there may be crowds but the blue of sky is bigger than its clouds.
Walk today with a smile and not this frown, as your footprints in time's sand, can't be made by sitting down.
Once again the world will rise but today you'll find smiling in God's eyes.
Now today as God shines His light on you, whether it be gray or it be blue; remember He reflects His light in you.
Shine little light do not frown and spread His colors all around.
Shine little light and do not frown for very soon the sun goes down.
Written by Bob Wood
Psalms 50: 1 .. The mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. 2 .. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
It takes a lifetime before we finally figure out that you go through lfe and not around it. Troubles are a part of life as is dicouragement, failures and pain. Some even claim to lead a life void of stress when what they mean is they are being stressful to someone else. We have all heard those say, "I can drive anywhere." I am sure they can because the rest of us are stressed from having to avoid their carelessness. I have also discovered that it takes good times as well as the bad to make life have meaning. Music without highs and lows is just noise and today I can truly say that my life is a symphony. I have also learned to laugh at my mistakes, which means that I can now always have something to smile about. I have learned that there is a big difference in a living and a life. I have also learned that my view of success or failure, can be seen in whether I look more on what I lost or on what I have gained. The ending of one day could be spent dwelling on what I've not accomplished this day, or I can anticipate a time of refreshing to enjoy the challenges of tomorrow. May you find rest tonight and joy in tommorow. When you do and you can; give praise to the one who made the first night and the first day. Give praise to the one who saw it necessary to give us sunshine and rain, joys and trials and sunrises and sunsets. 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.
