    for any of you who don't know how it feels to feel truly good inside...and for those who're unable to say: MY FATHER HAS BEEN GOOD TO ME

    ~~~~~~

    Give me a Moment...Part 1

    excuse me, my HEAVENLY FATHER
    i'm sorry for disturbing you
    as you look out over your creation
    but there's something i wanna say

    no...
    i didn't come asking to make my bank fat
    and "to have and to hold" i've already had
    although, i wouldn't mind returning to the fold
    i know i'm not ready

    no...
    i'm not seeking an extention on this lifetime
    ONE DAY AT A TIME is all i look forward to
    by your love and grace, i give praise to YOU

    no...
    it's not material possessions i'm longing for
    no mansion on the hill
    to let my brothers and sisters know
    what my status is
    i'm not asking for a lex
    though, that would be good
    just a moment of quiet time
    to reflect
    ...if YOU would

    one quiet moment
    without the hurry-up bustle
    or
    how am i gonna make it
    gotta go out and hustle

    just a moment of quiet time
    so i can give thanks to YOU
    for waking me up
    even if it's not your will that i do
    for giving me taste
    and touch
    and sight
    the sun during the day
    and the moon at night

    ...for giving me all the things i need
    like water and food
    and the ability to breathe

    {did i say breathe}

    most of all
    i just want to thank YOU
    for showing compassion
    in all that you do

    especially when we're unworthy of
    that wonderful gift that is your love
