We find our lives are in a spin.
The markets crashed, housing is down,
So many left with just a frown.
We find ourselves in midlife time,
Summarizing life into this rhyme.
We can’t complain, we have each other,
And know the One, closer than a brother.
We made it through the “raising” years,
With mostly joys and seldom tears.
With both professional in their trade,
They’ve planned for life with choices made.
I’d like to say, “Retirement come”,
But years in dairy, left us lacking some.
The following ten, gave heart and soul,
That time of life will take its toll.
With economy bad and owners poor,
With a steel toed boot, kicked out the door.
But God still has us in His care,
Working now, no hours to spare.
It’s been a year, and half since then,
The futures changing, “oh, but when?”
Now interviews twelve hundred miles away,
Seem to be what God has brought our way.
No where does the Bible say,
That we should retire, on a certain day.
To hang it up, to call it quits,
From God’s prospective, that would be the pits.
If you follow, what the Bible tells,
You’re sure to notice the coming bells.
It has warned us of, from the beginning,
What I will call, “The Final Inning.”
