This is one of those posts I read with one eye closed. When I say that, I mean that I could not fully take in the content…and still cannot. One of these days, I will go back and allow myself a day or 2 to laugh and cry and experience this post. I’ll allow myself to fully feel the parallel pain as well as the profound life lived, but for now, I will read with one eye closed. (click on link above to take you to the post on Beth’s blog)
Dear friend, guard clear thinking and common sense with your life;
don’t for a minute lose sight of them.
They’ll keep your soul alive and well,
they’ll keep you fit and attractive.
You’ll travel safely,
you’ll neither tire nor trip.
You’ll take afternoon naps without a worry,
you’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep.
No need to panic over alarms or surprises,
or predictions that doomsday’s just around the corner,
Because God will be right there with you;
He’ll keep you safe and sound.
