In honor of the wounded, lost and families of Littleton Colorado
April 20, 1999
Then the hand of Jesus touched me, and now I am no longer the same.
He touched me, oh, he touched me, and oh the joy that floods my soul.
Something happened and now I know, he touched me and made me whole.
Please take a Teddy Bear for Claire
A little Girl, who never got one....
When some friend has proved untrue - betrayed your simple trust;
Used you for his selfish ends and trampled in the dust
The past, with all its memories and all its sacred ties,
The light is blotted from the sky - for something in you dies.
Bless your false and faithless friend, just smile and pass along.
GOD must be the judge of it; He knows the right from wrong.
Life is short, don't waste the hours by brooding on the past;
His great laws are good and just; truth conquers at the last.
Red and deep our wounds may be - but after all the pain
GOD'S own finger touches us and we are healed again.
With faith restored, and trust renewed - we look towards the stars.
The world will see the smiles we have - but GOD will see the scars.
It's not about how many friends you have,
Or how accepted you are.
Not about if you have plans this weekend
Or if you're alone.
It isn't about who you're dating,
Who you used to date,
How many people you've dated,
Or if you haven't been with anyone at all.
It isn't about who you have kissed,
It's not about sex.
It isn't about who your family is,
Or how much money they have
Or what kind of car you drive.
Or where you are sent to school.
It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are.
Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on,
or what kind of music you listen to.
It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown
Or if your skin is too light or too dark.
Not about what grades you get,
How smart you are,
How smart everybody else thinks you are,
Or how smart standardized tests say you are.
It's not about what clubs you're in
Or how good you are at "your" sport.
It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper
And seeing who will "accept the written you".
LIFE JUST ISN'T.
But, life is about who you love and who you hurt.
It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully.
It's about keeping or betraying trust.
It's about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon.
It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.
About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.
It's about what judgments you pass and why.
And who your judgments are spread to.
It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention.
It's about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.
It's about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow, and spreading it.
But most of all,
it's about using your life to touch or poison other people's hearts
in such a way that could have never occurred alone.
Only you choose the way those hearts are affected,
and those choices are what life's about.
