Today, August 29, 2020, the song I am dedicating to you is:
My Hit Parade: Drop Kick Me Jesus Through the Goal Post of Life By Bobby Bare.
“I wake up one day and it’s twenty-plus years later, and here I am still. That’s getting left behind. And even then, you can have a decent life. You know why I’m still here? It’s because I’m content. Maybe even happy. I found my path. My life is simple.
I wake up in the morning. I eat my Cheerios, drink my coffee, think my thoughts. I go home after work and sit on my back patio and pet my dog and listen to music and myself breathing.
It feels good to be alive and exist. Most things haven’t worked out for me – especially love – but that’s all right. I’m not as pretty as I used to be. More of my life’s behind me than in front of me. Who knows how many years I took off it while I was partying. But I’m a lot healthier now, if you can believe it.
“I get lonely sometimes, but so does everyone else. We’re all looking for some sort of salvation in something sometimes we try to find it in people. We find out salvation, and it slips through our fingers. We find it again. We get left behind. Living is hurting, but I’ll take living over the alternative any day. Consciousness is a marvelous gift. It took almost dying to make me realize that.
Hell, I’m just rambling now. Anyway, having said all this, you did not get left behind.”
Have you ever had that feeling of “being left behind,” a lot of people do. If you are one of those lucky ones and know someone who is lonely and feels left behind, bring them into your fold – because the tent always has room for one more in your own life.
Don’t forget you are never alone – Jesus and your guardian angel is always by your side.
