A Moment . . .

Uncategorized

. . . Forever

A moment is all it took
Just a moment to make the decision
To chose that path
A moment – but now forever.

A moment is all it took
Just a moment to pull the trigger
A moment for the bullet to pierce
A moment – and forever began.

A moment is all it took
Just a moment for the soul to leave earth
A moment that can’t be undone
A moment – and now forever.

 

When will people realize the seriousness of pulling the trigger? When will people realize that eternity is real? When? When? When will people start taking life & God more seriously?

A moment is all it takes
Just a moment to make the decision
To choose God’s path
A moment – can be forever

A moment is all it takes
Just a moment to release the arrow
To defeat the devil with truth
A moment – can affect forever.

A moment is all it takes
Just a moment for a soul to leave earth
A moment that can’t be undone
But a moment – and then forever w/Christ.

And that is why we keep going to Philly and that is why we keep proclaiming the truth. It’s not my job to make them listen – to change them. It’s my job to tell them the truth.

Family Time

Uncategorized

Spent a lovely weekend  in Huntington County with my family.  It was Easter weekend so it meant we had an extra day.  We all headed up, at random times, Thursday evening and stayed until Sunday afternoon.  That meant there was plenty of time to relax and have a good time.

We did some damage hiking the one day.  And by “damage” I mean serious, serious hiking.  Almost impossible to do in a skirt, but I did it, so not entirely impossible.  There is something exhilerating about hiking like that.  I love defying my limitations and scaling a mountain.  It just feels good.

The upward climb.  This was approximately two thirds of the way up the mountain.  We scaled rocks like this pretty much the rest of the way.

Taking a break.  Yes, Conrad hauled the gun along.  Our protection against any wild animals.  I think he was regretting it, though, because it added extra weight, plus caught on every-other branch.

We made it to the top.  Gorgeous view of two valeys on either side of the mountain range.

On the home stretch.  It’s almost just as hard walking down-hill as evidenced by my brother walking backwards.  By this time our legs are started to feel the strain and the down-hill slant want to propel your body faster then your legs can keep up with.

Mom, me and the little guy on a walk.  The point of the walk was two-fold – exercise for mom and I, and sleep for Marlin.  It worked. :)

I thought it was so cute how she sat there and watched him play.
