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!

WHAT WILL IT MATTER?



If someone passes me by, and doesn't speak,
in a few years, what will it matter?
If I sometimes cry because I had a bad week,
in a few years, what will it matter?

If I trip and hurt myself, because I missed the door ...
Of a vase falls off a shelf, and becomes a mosaic on the floor ...
If I lose everything because my house burned down ...
If I sing and pray, or if I smile or frown ...
In a few years (or less), what will it matter?

If things go well for days, no matter what I do ...
If I am daily blessed, and feel I'm born anew ...

So what befalls me, physically, for good or bad while here on earth,
It's how I've acted, what I've done, that's the thing that has some worth.
That's what matters ...

God's gift for me is salvation. I know I'm saved by grace,
but I still have to reach and take it - I have to run the race.
How I've treated others, the road that I have trod ...
And if I've studied the Bible, and if I've obeyed God ...
That's all that will matter ...
