TITLE: THIS ONE LIFE I GIVE

Lost time without backward glances
Lost opportunities taken so lightly,
Life rushing by thought of so slightly.
Chasing dreams that have gone astray
Running after rainbows that fade away
Nothing accomplished, nothing gained
Satan steals time, I see it so plain.
Life is lived and time has passed
Then reality awakens at last.
God restores and God redeems
And shows me time is to be esteemed.
It’s not always what’s said or done
It’s not how it ends or how it's begun
It’s our attitude in life and how we live it
It’s our gratitude for life and how we give it.
Life in increments of time given away
So precious a gift, words cannot say.
Lived for others as a precious token,
In humility, with words unspoken.
Thank You Lord for this precious day
Twenty four hours of my life to give away
Lived for others that they may be blessed,
Given to God as a loving caress.
