TSMSS ~ Plenty of Time

Last Sunday we had 2 families come and bless us with their musical talent.  One of the men sang this song.  I never heard it before but I loved it.  James 4:14 ~ Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.

I got up on Sunday morning went to the church at ten
I listened to the words I'd heard time and time again
The preacher spoke of simple lives it seems he spoke of mine
But I was young I have plenty of time

I walked on down life's pathway living as I wished to live
How to beat the other fellow how to get what life could give
Making money isn't sinful having fun is not a crime
So I'll just wait I've got plenty of time

Plenty of time to decide where I'm bound to eternal darkness or to heaven's grounds
I'm just a young girl not yet in my prime so I'll just wait I've got plenty of time.

Before I knew what happened life seems had passed away
And millions stood before God's throne for it was judgement day
Now eternal darkness beckons and the name it calls is mine
But I thought that I had plenty of time

Eternity waits I've got plenty of time
To think of all the days that Christ could have been mine
Now my chance is over earth's days have left behind
You and I have plenty of time now I've got nothing but plenty of time

I've heard this song before, but it's good to be reminded. For me it is a reminder that all those things that I want to do for the Lord may not get done if I keep putting it off. So glad you are going ahead with this missionary trip. I'll be praying for you, and looking forward to your reports. I love you.
