A Beautiful Poem

Wow this is a poem I recieved in a FWD email that a man had wrote while in a nursing home and it was found after he died. It had me teary eyed. We all were once young and had lives and lived,just because people get older don't stop loving them or start treating them different. Inside they are still that same person!!

What do you see nurses? . . . . . What do you see?
What are you thinking . . . . . when you're looking at me?
A crabby old man . . . . . not very wise,
Uncertain of habit . . . . . with faraway eyes?

Who dribbles his food . . . . . and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice . . . . . 'I do wish you'd try!'
Who seems not to notice . . . . . the things that you do.
And forever is losing . . . . . A sock or shoe?

Who, resisting or not . . . . . lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding . . . . . The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking? . . . . . Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse . . . . . you're not looking at me.

I'll tell you who I am. . . . . . As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, . . . . . as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten . . . . . with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters . . . . . who love one another.

A young boy of Sixteen . . . . with wings on his feet.
Dreaming that soon now . . . . . a lover he'll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty . . . . . my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows . . . . . that I promised to keep.

At Twenty-Five, now . . . . . I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide . . . . . And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty . . . . . My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . . . . With ties that should last.

At Forty, my young sons . . . . . have grown and are gone,
But my woman's beside me . . . . . to see I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children . . . . . My loved one and me.

Dark days are upon me . . . . . my wife is now dead.
I look at the future . . . . . shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing . . . . . young of their own.
And I think of the years . . . . . and the love that I've known.

I'm now an old man . . . . . and nature is cruel.
Tis jest to make old age . . . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles . . . . . grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone . . . . where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass . . . . . a young guy still dwells,
And now and again . . . . . my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys . . . . . I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . . . life over again.

I think of the years, all too few . . . . . gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . . that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people . . . . . open and see.
Not a crabby old man . . . Look closer . . . see ME!!

Heaven Is for Real Book Review

I recently had the chance to read and review Heaven is for Real!! I really enjoyed this book! It is the story of a young boy who never actually died on the operating table and he comes back later at various times afterwards and tells stuff nobody has told him or he even knew about. He even tells what Heaven and Jesus look like in wonderful details. It's an amazing account of Jesus and Heaven after death. The book also includes pictures as well so you can get an idea of how cute the little boy is and what is family looks like! It is a wonderful account of the life after this earth!! I love this book I can't put it down!!! Amazing!!

The Path taken with God

I'm at a Crossroads in life and not sure which way to turn. I was thinking about this poem today. I don't know what the outcome is going to be. I do though know I don't want to travel on the road the world travels on that leads to no good. I want to follow on the path less taken,the path that God has laid out and planned for me. I just want to serve and follow his path where he will lead. I don't know what the plan is as I walk the path less taken but I know I walk it with the Lord and he directs my steps each step of the way! Please pray for me.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Encouragement for the Single Woman

The other week,I was feeling kinda of down. I know several who have entered into courtships,relationships,marriage and had children. I got to wondering just when or if I will get the chance to be a bride and have children. When will I get the chance to be a keeper at home and raise a family to serve God? I received a Christian magazine in the mail one day and I kept forgetting to read it. So finally I got to reading it one day and one article in it felt like it was speaking directly to me. It was from a woman who had gone through the same extact feelings I was feeling. The article really blessed my heart and gave me such encouragement. She too wondered if and when all these things would come to pass. Then as she was reading her bible one day it hit her she was married to the Lord!! She could be of so much help and encouragement to people and go about the Lord's work while being single. It really brought me up. To think the Lord is letting me stay single to minister and be of service for him. There are so many things I can do now for the Lord!! If I stay single for the rest of my days,I have accepted it because I am not alone,I am married to the Lord!! What an honor that is!! If the Lord sees fit to send me a spouse and family down the road that is great,but if not I will be content because I will be married to the Lord and serving him. What a grand thing and how delightful that is!
Here is a link to the article I read! I just get the magazine for the wonderful devotion and encouraging stories they have!!
