Rivers

 Life is like rivers. Its beginnings come from different backgrounds and histories.  Sometimes we meet others and the rivers collide. When relations seem to part their ways, the rivers split and go the other way.  The river then may dry up as it flows into the desert.  Sometimes the current gets rough as it rolls passed the rocks and jagged river bed much as our lives often do.  You may not know where the current takes you, but it’s the traveling there that makes life meaningful.

A young river,
So strong
Nothing could stop it
Nothing went wrong

Big rocks in its way
No problem at all
It went over them
Around them if tall

But then it met the desert
Water sank deep into sand
Huge problem for the river
It looked like its life was to end

Desperately
It turned to our God
‘Please, God help me
To get away from or over this spot’

A voice from above said
‘Look at the wind in the sky
It crosses the desert so easily
So just stop to cry! ‘

‘But I am not wind, I am water
How can I cross
Please help me
I am at a loss’

‘Did you forget dear river, ‘
Said the voice from above
‘Long time before you were a river
The wind carried you with love’

The river let its water evaporate
Allowed the wind to carry it once more
In its loving arms,
wind held the river as before

Across the desert they went
A lot of water in a big large cloud
And at the other side
The wind let it rain out

There the river again became strong
Even better and stronger than before
With much vigor it ran
For everyone to adore

Dear young men and women alike
If you meet with the desert or anything wrong
Remember who carried you
Before you became a river so strong. (Aifoe Zophy)

And hopefully we all will then be able to sing the chorus along with the angels above this special song

Gold and silver blind the eye
Temporary riches light

Come and eat from Heavens store
Come and drink, and thirst no more

So weep not for me my friend
When my time below does end

For my life belongs to Him
Who will raise the dead again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnwQ51Q3pWc
