Things That Make Me
by Marvin Busby, 2-25-17
Things That Make Me Happy - Loving God, Loving all but evil. - My Father, my Mother, my Brother and Sisters. - My wonderful Wife and our beautiful Children. - Building things, almost anything. - Teaching others to build things. - Machines that go fast. - Playing pool and having a beer with a friend. - Children playing. - Seeing people smile. - The Loving support and prayers of family and friends. - Serving God, receiving his blessings.
Things That Make Me Cry - Loss of a Loved one. - Killing, stealing, destruction. - Building something and realizing that it looks like socks on a chicken (makes me laugh also). - While receiving cancer treatment at Immunity Therapy Center in Tijuana, Mexico, I tried for three weeks to read this calligraphy on the wall without getting misty eyed. Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes it’s that quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.” Never happened. Still can’t. - While leaving the cemetery after my Mother’s funeral we were rushing to get out of the encroaching blizzard. For an instant I thought, “What about Mom, we can’t leave her in this storm.” Quickly, I realized she wasn’t there anymore. That was the loneliest feeling I have ever felt. - Vengeance, hate.
Things That Make Me Wish I Had Known Sooner - My wonderful wife. - Prayer’s. - God’s Grace and Mercy. - Not to worry, God will provide. - Serving the Lord doesn’t make life easier but much better. - If you are not crossing paths with evil, you are probably on the same path. - Love is the most powerful force in God’s creation
