If I could give you any advice
On how to live a content, purposeful life—
Have I? Well, yes. I would say that
Why am I content now, at this end of the story?
‘Cause there was nothing I wanted more
Than just to follow my God, and
Prayer was important — talking to him.
I asked myself, “What is the point,
If I don’t talk to, and hear from, my Maker?”
Often I had to wait for his leading, and blessing
Sometimes in negative circumstances
During these times I wrote songs and prayers.
I know you are good at this too:
Music is inside of you, creativity overflowing.
You have a lot you want to say and sing—
You will be happy and blessed because of
Your willingness to wait on your Maker
To count what you have now as sufficient.
Have people that care about you a lot.
You have us right now and we love you, so much.
Happiness is something you have chosen.
Be great and do great things many times over.
Your strength is in being the child of God
Just stay in that spot. . . now and always.
