Bible

The Neighbor

~

I prayed to have a neighbor,
A neighbor such as thee.
And if I had some extra time,
I’d come and visit thee.

These times find me so busy,
I’m sure you must be too.
Where is the time to visit,
The way neighbors used to do.

I find myself a running,
Each and every day.
I wish I had a moment,
To hear what you have to say.

If only we could visit,
I wish we had the time.
It would be nice to visit you,
And hear what’s on your mind.

Today’s the day I have the time,
To come and visit thee.
But in the paper I just read,
Your funeral is at three.

Footnote:

Now is the time to visit…now is the time to say.

Now is the time to be there…before their gone away.

Down An Old Dusty Road

Down an old and dusty road,
From many years ago.
Memories are stirring,
Stories to be told.

Home fires would be glowing,
In the farm house on the right.
Faces watching at the window,
For their Dad to come in sight.

Supper on the table,
Fireplace burning bright.
Together for the evening,
Before we say goodnight.

A tear reflects the memories,
From many years ago.
I often think about them,
Down an old and dusty road.

Coming Home

~~~

There was a time when you knew everyone, the car they drove and the house they lived in. You went to school with their kids, it was a small town and you were like extended family. Then, one day, you grew up; you graduated and eventually moved away from the town and those you knew.

After years pass and you are away from the hometown setting, so much becomes like a stranger to you. You remember what used to be, you see it as it was. People change; faces change. You walk right by those you knew…they do not recognize you…you do not recognize them.

Then, one day, you pick up the paper and read the obituary of someone you went to school with…of someone you knew when they were a small child. You find out one lived across the street from you, another lived in the next apartment building. Your paths never crossed. If you waved, it was to a stranger. Coming home after many years away is a bittersweet experience.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. (Phil 4:8)
