For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

DON'T BLINK!

Artist: Chesney Kenny
Song: Don't Blink
Album: Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates

I turned on the evening news
Saw a old man being interviewed
Turning a hundred and two today
Asked him what's the secret to life
He looked up from his old pipe
Laughed and said "All I can say is.
"Don't blink
Just like that you're six years old
and you're taking naps and you
Wake up and you're twenty-five
and your high school sweetheart
becomes your wife
Don't blink
You just might miss your babies
growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
next thing you know your better half
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years
goes faster than you think
So don't blink
I was glued to my tv
and it looked like he looked at me and said
"Best start putting first things first."
Cause when your hourglass
runs out of sand
You can't flip over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you
for what it's worth
Don't Blink
Just like that you're six years old
and you're taking naps and you
Wake up and you're twenty-five
and your high school sweetheart
becomes your wife
Don't blink
You just might miss your babies
growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
next thing you know your better half
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years
goes faster than you think
So don't blink
I've been tryna slow it down
I've been tryna take it in
In this here today gone tomorrow
world we're livin' in
Don't blink
Just like that you're six years old
and you're taking naps and you
Wake up and you're twenty-five
and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don't blink
You just might miss your babies
growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
next thing you know your better half
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster you think
Don't blink
Naw, don't blink
Life goes by so fast sometimes and so slow at other times!
Don't Blink. :)
Love,
Chatty
