"Today I'm Doing Time"

While casually driving along today, I suddenly met another, going the wrong way.

I turned quickly with none to pay but we both were again given another day.

I looked across God's beautiful sky and though a man is said to never cry;

Without reason or wonder why, a shiny tear ran from my eye.

Today I'm doing time and not just going along;

For today I've been given music to go with life's song.

My body has been broken and cluttered with disease

But today I'm doing time just as I please.

Though many days have been wasted and moments passed today,

I now find my life a precious gift that I must give away.

Today I'm doing time and not just going along;

For I hope to help another find life's music, to make our life a song.

Today I'm doing time, not just passing through the day

And I strive to live life to the fullest, by giving my life away.

Written by Bob Wood

John 6:33 ... For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 ... Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 ... And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

On a recent trip to the Middle East I received a special gift. After being fed a steady diet of untruth of the war and what the people were like; I saw the truth with my own eyes. We found a people beaten and abused, hurt and tired. They were distrusting and very watchful. They were awed to find someone coming to help them and request none in return. Some would glaringly gaze at me, studying very deeply your every move, until I would smile and wave. They usually in return would smile and wave. I went expecting a desert void of life but found a place green and growing. Some grew where most would say green could never grow. I found people with weather ravaged faces but a smile often still shown through. I found a people that laughed, cried, hurt, loved, hated and played with life going on. I found how spoiled I am to complain of a life that they dream to live. I found that I am not here to be loved but I am here to love God and His people. They are everywhere and all around us, here and around the world. Today let us not just do time but live it to God's fullest. Let's give it away! Keep shining and be as good as you can be and when you have a chance; you pray for me. May God Really Bless You!
