THE TRAIN by John MacDonald

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel by our side.

As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life.

However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.

Others will step down over time and leave a permanent vacuum.

Some, however, will go so unnoticed that we don’t realize they vacated their seats.

This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.

Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down.

So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.

It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you all a joyful journey.

This section is new to our blog.  I love Christian music.  A friend of mine, Nancy Duvic, began sharing a graphic each Sunday of the title or words from a Christian song.  Sometimes it’s a hymn and sometimes a contemporary song.  I love that she does this because it starts my mind early on a Sunday singing the song, helping my human self concentrate on God.  I hope you all will enjoy these each week on whatever day I publish the blog!

This song is by Terry Butler and appears on the compilation 25 Top Vineyard Worship Songs: The River Is Here (2002).

LYRICS

May the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be pleasing to You, pleasing to You
May the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be pleasing to You my God

May the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be pleasing to You, pleasing to You
May the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be pleasing to You my God

You’re my rock and my Redeemer
You’re the reason that I sing
I desire to be a blessing
In your eyes
Every hour, every moment
Lord I want to be Your servant
I desire to be a blessing
In Your eyes
In Your eyes

May the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be pleasing to You, pleasing to You
May the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be pleasing to You my God

You’re my rock and my Redeemer
You’re the reason that I sing
I desire to be a blessing
In Your eyes
Every hour, every moment
Lord I want to be Your servant
I desire to be a blessing
In Your eyes
In Your eyes

You’re my rock and my Redeemer
You’re the reason that I sing
I desire to be a blessing
In your eyes
In Your eyes
Every hour, every moment
Lord I want to be Your servant
I desire to be a blessing
In Your eyes
In Your eyes

May the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be pleasing to You my God

The words of the music that goes along with this are in a foreign language.  If it turns out they are saying something offensive, I am most sorry!  The doggies were just too cute to pass up!
