"What I Like About Me"

Once the music heard I but not the tune, and almost always the clouds covered the moon.

Once sunsets were shades of darkest grey and blue, but that all changed when I met you.

Once in darkness saw I but shadows on the wall, and I had none to catch if I were to fall.

Once I had not a care if tomorrow came anew, but that all changed when I met you.

Once happiness was in site but not in reach, though many tried of joy my heart to teach.

Once my life not whole but part, until God sent you into my heart.

Now my life is not just one but of one life made two, and this change came when I met you.

Now the moon for us does shine through, and the stars sparkle not few.

Now are two shadows on the wall, and I hear your voice when I call.

Now one are we two, and I now am sure, what I like about me is you.

Written By Bob Wood

Send this to someone you believe God has blessed you with.  It might be a special friend, a teacher, your pastor, your parents, or your children, but be sure to tell them how much they mean to you.  Give your wife or husband a big hug.  If this person has gone on to heaven, stop and pray right now, and give thanks to God for the blessings of love you've shared and still share today.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4...Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,..5...Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;..6...Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;..7...Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

No where does God's Word say our life will not have pain.  On the contrary it assures always our life will have pain, sadness and disappointments.  We are told as Adam had God and all his eyes could see, there was yet a need in his life.  Gen. 2:18..And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him...In life we will have trouble but if we are whole Spiritually,(Born Again, saved), with God we can accept each day as it comes.  God also gives us our husband, wife, family and friends as a heavenly gift, that we may walk through all of life together. One little boy about to go out in the dark, assured his dad he knew God was there but he needed someone with skin.  Stop now and Thank God for His complete love, and give thanks for those all around you with skin, that have been a part of your life..
