Y..... Row


Sitting at the river bed
I prayed to God, I said
Please help me, show the way
Show me the light of day

Then in front of me
a small boat passed
a man was rowing

I suddenly realised
God gave already the water
God gave already the boat
But I had to row

    Yes dear, sometimes we didnt see what is in front of us is a guide, a hint, a clue and an assistant...We born as specialist to complete each others.. We pray to Him and He not make all suddenly happen, the mind that we have is the gift that we should use in any reason for good because there is always love we will find if we think....how you will understand what i am saying without thinking, and how much love is coming when you understanding....and yes we should see what we have now..llife...could be died if we ignorant but with His love life to alive again_Soul (Report) Reply

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
