Life On Earth
Life here on earth is a challenge each day
We really donít know how long we can stay
We donít know what each day will bring
If we ask, the Lord will help us to do the right thing
We spend our youth wondering how each day will be spent
In our senior years we wonder where those days went.
We can put off until tomorrow, weíve plenty of time
Never realizing the many tomorrows we left behind.
Life is a blessing if you let it be
Itís a gift from God to you and me
Open your ears to hear the sounds around you
Open your eyes to the beauty that surrounds you
I think now of the tragic event
On 9/11 when many to Heaven were sent.
They left their families that day
Never to return, for them I pray.
They never knew this was their last day
Iím sure the Lord was with them as they prayed.
So, each day when you retire or rise
Thank God that this day youíre alive
