God gives eternal life to those whose lives have no sin. But not one person can ever meet this requirement. God knows this, and he loves us so much that he sent his son Jesus to erase our sins
forever. The funny thing is that God will not force eternal life upon you if you do not want it. You must first repent the things you know you've done wrong, and ask Jesus to forgive you for them.
Jesus is faithful and true; He will forgive you when you ask him to. Jesus will never leave you or forsake you. friend, eternal life is yours, just ask for it !



The Coffee Table



we built a coffee table, you and me thirty plus years in construction, we built with care We made the foundation sure and strong. Nothing's wrong Forever molding it to our needs, its respect We
used it well: pumpkin pie, soda and life changing stories The years go by fast, we etched in our marks of spots, stains and scrathes. Regardless, who sees a defect ?



Why we threw that coffee table down the river that day, who can say ? The river had its way, the remains busted and broken Comfort ruined now, needs great repair coziness gone, no longer fits us
Awkward and useless you thought we should hide it away Ever again, can it see the light of day ?



How I miss our coffeee table Nothing else around, nothing compares, our design was priceless foundation, is it strong ? Repairs will be costly: time, commitment and sacrifices let's bring it out,
you and me; we'll fix her

The Coffee Table

?

we built a coffee table, you and me

thirty plus years in construction, we built with care

We made the foundation sure and strong. Nothing's wrong

Forever molding it to our needs, its respect

We used it well: pumpkin pie, soda and life changing stories

The years go by fast, we etched in our marks

of spots, stains and scrathes. Regardless, who sees a defect ?

?

Why we threw that coffee table down the river that day, who can say ?

The river had its way, the remains busted and broken

Comfort ruined now, needs great repair

coziness gone, no longer fits us

Awkward and useless you thought we should hide it away

Ever again, can it see the light of day ?

?

How I miss our coffeee table

Nothing else around, nothing compares, our design was priceless

foundation, is it strong ?

Repairs will be costly: time, commitment and sacrifices

let's bring it out, you and me; we'll fix her
