Where Do I Look?
By Larry Chadwick


If I look deep into the mirror,
Is it still a shallow soul?
If I raise my eyes towards heaven,
Wouldn’t that be a better goal?

Can I face life by myself,
When I always seem to stumble?
Shouldn’t I confess my need of God,
And begin to act more humble?

Do I take the time to read,
Of the Words He has provided?
Or do I ignore them on my desk,
Because in others I’ve confided?

Have I offered up some prayers,
And confessed my utter need?
Or do I think that I can rely,
Upon doing special deeds?

If I look into that mirror,
Isn’t it only me that I will see?
Shouldn’t I just lift my head,
And focus on God instead of me?


September 13, 2002

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

I'm sure we all know the answer Larry, but it is good to stop and remind ourselves.  Thanks.  Joyce

I often thought the same myself, and stumbled a few times as well but always seem to have found my feet. Thank you for your lovely read.

(big hugggssssssss) Oh Larry, these are such powerful and contemplative words, always be true and believe in yourself but also know He is here for us all and whenever you need that second wind all you have to do is ask for He will always love to help! (sigh) God Bless You, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Larry, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton
