I Won't Last A Day Without You...

Hey! Good morning! I'll bet you never thought you'd see me write an entry this early in the day!

Hopefully, you slept well. I haven't even gone to bed, yet. Well, to be honest, I did go to bed, but couldn't sleep, so after 3:00 am I got up. I read my early morning paper (it arrives early!) and watched a movie: Moonstruck.

Isn't it amazing how there seems to be happy endings in most movies. Unlike life. At least for me. Hopefully, your life is better; truly, I pray it is.

If I sound 'down', I apologize; I don't mean to. I think I've said it before: I feel like a walking, talking, oxymoron. I have joy, for I have joy in my Lord. But, I am truly not happy. I know; I know. I'm grieving and I'm depressed. Yes, it's true. But, deep down, I have trouble believing I could ever have a happy ending. God just didn't make my life that way. It was a tragedy from the beginning. There's no reason to think it will end, differently.

No, I think God's plan for my life, is to just be an overcomer. I know I'll get through this, with His help. There's no way I could make it through on my own.

Let me ask you: How on earth do people make it through this huge trial called, 'life'...without Jesus? I truly cannot imagine, for I couldn't last a day, without Him.

Saying this, brings to mind a song by the Carpenters: I Won't Last A Day Without You:

Day after day, I must face a world of strangers
Where I don't belong, I'm not that strong
It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to
Who will always care, you're always there

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness that the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

So many times when the city seems to be
Without a friendly face, a lonely place
It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you
And you'll always smile, it's all worthwhile

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness that the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

Touch me and I end up singing
Trouble seems to up and disappear
You touch me with the love you're bringing
I can't really lose when you're near
When you're near, my love

If all my friends have forgotten half their promises
They're not unkind, just hard to find
One look at you and I know
That I could learn to live without the rest
I've found the best

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

It's a great song; check it out for yourself. Every time I think of this song, I think of Jesus.

I know that this world is not my home. Gordon used to say this. I agree. It wasn't his home. It's not mine, either.

Sometime this morning I will have to go and try to sleep for a while, or else I won't be able to function and do the work I need to, today. Since it's close to 5:30 am (the printed time on this entry won't say this, because the time is wrong on the blog), I suppose now is as good a time as ever to wish you a blessed day!


Until next time...
