_picture it & write/ Ermilia

The people are being called

And all I have done is sit down and bawled

You see they are being called by God

To follow the sheep and carry the rod

I know that we are here on loan

This isn’t really our permanent home

I know that God has been calling our home

But I refuse to answer the phone

I beg for just a little more time

Please don’t be mad and cut our line

You have to understand that I

Am building a memory box six feet high

If you can let me do this first

I will wipe your feet and quench your thirst

I know dear Lord I call out to you

There are so many things I want from you

I have tried to do things on my own

But I guess I have to give up my stubborn bone

So I come to you just one more time

And ask you to put Al at the end of the line.

Written by,

Terry Shepherd

  3. You did a great job at emphasising the need and want to ‘call out’ and to be listened. Thanks for contributing this week to Picture it & write, Terry. 🙂

  4. Heartfelt and expressive, Terry — it is so difficult to watch someone you love dearly suffer, but at the same time it is so hard to let them go. You included a great video — i have always loved Ann Murray’s beautiful voice, and pairing it with the slide presentation of Jesus welcoming us home was wonderful!
