|My thoughts on the people who come into our lives|
FOOTPRINTS ON THE HEART People come into our lives we know not what the reason An hour, a day, a week, a month, or even for a season They touch our lives in many ways and open many doors And sometimes we never know what the reasons for. Some bring joy and some bring pain and some even love And from some we even feel the touch of God above Some get us asking for the reasons we are here Some just open our eyes and expose us to our fears. Some open our eyes to who we really are Some make us look at ourselves standing from afar Some make us happy and some even cry Some just make us ask ourselves for reasons why. Some touches are so brief we forget that they were there But the ones that stay the longest are the ones who really care And some of them you need more then they need you And others are the ones to help to see you through. And sometimes we get lucky and find that special one The one who'll always be there until our days are done Those are the one we cherish most and show we really care The ones who know we love them and know we're always there. These are the ones we nourish and slowly bring along The ones that make us happy and fill our hearts with song The ones that will listen to what we have to say The ones whose presence we need each andevery day. The ones who mean the most to us with each passing day The ones we try to please the most in each and every way The ones that we will give whatever we have to give The ones who will always give us the reasons that we need to live. And so I know when our days are done and our lives are through And we stand before our God I know what he will do He'll look at the people we have touched and touched us in turn To see the lessons we have given and the lessons we have learned. He'll look at the love we've given and the love we have recieved At the people we have trusted and the people we decieved At everthing we have done for people on our way At all the things we didn't hear or didn't try to say. So when we stand in His judgement and he looks into our soul And puts our lives in prespective and sees it at it's whole And i know the first place that He is going to start Is to look at the footprints etched upon our heart. For each person that we touch and touches us in turn For each lesson given and each lesson learned Leaves a little footprint etched upon our heart And it's these little footprints that sets us all apart. So as you go through your life and with each passing day Be loving to those people that you pass along the way And where you left footprints hope that God will see That we turned out to be the person He intened us to be.
