To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

The Preacher Says

Ecclesiastes says there's a time for all things.
3:2 says a time to be born and to die.
Chapter 12 tells what will happen as onward we age.
Can't stop it no matter how hard we may try.

Personally, I'm not sick, but I'm falling apart,
just as wise Solomon said,
but I still plug along and do what I can,
until ''this ol' house'' of mine is dead.

My ''windows'' became bad in 2003,
but I still have some usable sight.
And I need aids for my ears, but I still can hear some,
But I often enjoy the quiet.

A congenital problem I have with my feet
has become worse, but I can still walk.
And a real old grinder recently had to come out,
but I can still eat and can talk.

So what that I'm slower, don't see or hear well,
and my speech is no longer real clear.
I'm still above ground and I'm mostly OK.
I guess God's got things for me yet to do here.

God gave His Son and I know I am saved.
I'm waiting for my Heavenly rest!
So even though I have problems - and don't we all! -
here on earth, O how richly I'm blest.
