He Ain't Finished With Me Yet!

Life is too short, don't waste a minute.
Enjoy each day & everyone in it.

Tomorrow will come & it could be your last.
Make the most of today for life passes too fast.

Life is hard, life is tough.
You need to be positive & stay strong & never give up.

There may be days that never seem to end.
And you feel like you don't have a understanding friend.

But keep on walking down life's road.
Your true friends will follow & help to bare your load.

But remember to face each day & what it brings.
And you'll be ready to face life's anything.

I MzGloria am a Renaissance Black Woman Warrior who knows that God ain't threw with me yet! Nor is He finished with you either. I've been sittin' here tryin' to find myself. As I get behind myself I need to rewind myself to figure out where my life is heading. I am a survivor warrior and I'll keep moving on and only God knows why. I have weathered some storms, as God has draws me daily closer to Him and He is still working some things out in me.

Seeing God through the eyes of pain fills me with something unbelievable and capable determined joy. There are still so many messages in the unfinished portrait of my life. I am so blessed in this moment, I am so embraced by God that I surrender only to love.

Each and everyone of us is capable of great things, things that confirm our divine heritage, things of beauty, things of wonder, things of great power, things that allow us to claim eternity for the few moments we are able to live our lives to the fullest, for it is all in GOD'S GRAND DESIGN of our lives. My demon is Sarcoidosis but my
Sarcoidosis is so limited that:
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit

Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Ever told your child,
We'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say "Hi"?
You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

That's why I know God's Not Finished With Me Yet!
