Wow, you know I have been in a rather heavy mood lately. Probably thinking too much about the real world…not that we should ignore it, but it does bear down on you.

I have a hard time blogging while I am in this mood so I am going to post the lyrics to a great song by Blue Highway.

Some Day

Some day when my last line is written
Some day when I’ve drawn my last breath
When my last words on earth have been spoken
And my lips are sealed in death
Don’t look on my cold form in pity
Don’t think of me as one dead
It’ll just be the house I once lived in
My spirit, by then, will have fled.

I’ll have finished my time here alotted
But I won’t be in darkness alone
I will have heard from heaven
The summons to come on home
And when my body is in the grave
Don’t think that I’ll be there
I won’t be dead, but living
In the place Jesus went to prepare.

And after all is said and done
Know that my last earnest prayer
Is that my loved ones be ready
Someday to meet me there.

One of my mother’s favorites, I suppose that I have now deprived her of putting it on her blog. But I am sure she won’t mind.

Thought For The Week

I want to clarify that there is no political problem that is not really a heart problem with hearts not connected to Christ. Only one Kingdom is really important, and this isn't it.

But just as it's sad to see poorly coded software, a badly built building, or an ugly city, it's even more sad to see a nation being thrown away. As custodians of this earth, we should do better.

-Mark Ritchie
