Balance

30 Jan 2011  8:15 am

Is time really the enemy of us all
Stand today for tomorrow we fall

Live for the moment enjoy life like a sport
It won't be long till your boat leaves the port

Hurry now hurry get what you can
You don't know when you'll be called by the Man

Search and discover all of life's thrills
Before they put you away for the big chill

Is this life that we savour each taste?
Or is just a thrill seeking race?

I tend to beleive that it is both
Sometimes it is fast and sometimes slow

It has been hard for me to balance these two
It seems there is always to much to do

I don't find happiness in sorrow and strife
And I don't find it in the good things of life

The times of balance are the best of times
It is then when my mind is clear and tuned fine

I'm not giddy with glee
Nor sad or angry

Just balanced in Christ the way life really should be
