    There is someone that you say you know
    That I really would like to meet
    You claim that they are wonderful and sweet
    This friend of yours
    Are they much like you
    Do they talk and walk
    Just the way you do
    Do they do the things that you do
    Do they go where you go and say
    The things that you say
    Is your friend the kind of guy that
    Would leave a friend in a fight
    Or would they champion a cause
    Just because they know it’s right
    This friend of yours are all there friends
    Black or White
    Do they win all there arguments
    With the show of might
    Or do they leave it up to you
    To decide the way that is true
    Curious thing
    But from what you have told me
    He doesn’t sound anything like you
    Do you think that since you know him so well
    You could show him to me every once in a while
    Cause I would love to meet this friend of yours
    Before my day’s on earth are threw
    But from what I have heard
    if you really knew him
    I would have seen him by now

    ...point taken!! :)

    this one brings to mind the "fanatics"...
    simp-ly because i've always thought
    that... it's not necessary to run around
    screamin' & proclaimin'... if you livin'
    right... someone else will see His light
    shining from/in you & will want to be
    introduced without you sayin' a word...

    (that's just my 2 cents. :D )

    thank you for sharing, my dear!

    itsallLove, chile!

    I am so glad that you are physic and have read my mind completely. This was just my way of saying if you really want others to meet this wonderful God you say you serve stop confusing others by vehemently proclaiming the one thing and living another.

    it's all in the way we walk
    not in how we talk
