I love this song...

Forever
If every word I said
Could make you laugh
I'd talk forever
(together my love)
I asked the sky
Just what we had
It shone forever
(together my love)
If the song I sing to you
Would fill your heart with joy
I'd sing forever
Forever, forever
I've been so happy loving you
If every word I said
Could make you laugh
I'd talk forever
Forever, forever
I'll be so happy loving you

An Inspiration

I was agonizing yesterday over a way to share what I've felt lately with other people. I have this peace in my heart that, while it is not nearly as strong as the peace of the person in the following writing, is there nonetheless. And I have a huge desire to share this with other people, and not just to share it with others, but to help them to feel it to, except I didn't know how. Normally a poem would suffice, but I couldn't put it into poetry, unfortunately. So this little piece of writing, I have no idea what to call it, so it's just an inspiration, is what I ended up with today. Ironically, today, when I found out I'm even more in debt then I thought that I was, and that I've spent way too much money in less than a month, is when I was able to describe this peace, sort of. Enough rambling, here it is...

Walls crumble, cities fall, love is lost, money runs out, families leave, friends betray.
But I stand here, Happy In Spite Of, because I know that while the things of this world will crumble and fall, and the things of this world will all come to an end, I am not of this world. I am a new creation, a child of the Living God. What I lose here on earth was never mine to have; everything here belongs to my Lord. What He sees fit for me to have, I will have, and what He sees fit to take away, I will lose. Whatever trials I go through are lessons to teach me and strengthen me. This world will pass away, but I will not. I belong to the Risen Lord, the Giver of Life. He will provide for me, and when this life is over, He will draw me to Him and I will live forever.


That's all for now, I suspect more is to come.
