Hey, hey

Like Eminem,guess who’s back?

Back at the front and still back to front

With a head full of ideas and a heart full of hope.

So, I’m ambling along, looking for the right signs,

Bright signs, signs that jump out at me, saying,

“This way!”

So, I’m ambling along, looking for the right signs,

With ears open, listening for the voice that says

“Over here!”

But it’s got to be the right way and the right voice;

There’s so much out here, in the big wide world

That tries to confuse me, disillusion me, making me feet

Stumble, stumble and trip, trip, stumble.

And then I fall over.

The voice that called “Over here!” just laughs at me and says

“You idiot! (or words to that effect) Just look where you’re going!

The voice is derisive, offending me, calling me all the names under the sun.

Getting up, I dust myself down, making sure there’s no eye contact,

Feeling utterly stupid

Hold on. Why should feel stupid?

Yes, I fell over and yes, I may have looked completely ridiculous,

But I’m no idiot.

Listen, I say to myself, everyone trips over, everyone stumbles

But it doesn’t make you an idiot!

Falling over doesn’t make you an idiot.

You’re not an idiot. The millions of people out there who stumble and trip-

They’re not idiots, they just didn’t see what was in their way,

Or maybe they did, and thought they could step over it,

Thought they could do it all themselves.

We all get like that, think we’re up to the task and it doesn’t matter if you slip up;

Try and figure out what made you fall and get it sorted.

It might happen straight away, or it might take some time,

Whatever way it happens, it’ll get sorted and you’ll be on your way again,

Looking and listening for the right signs,

The signs that lead you true and steady, the voice that speaks words of love and hope.

And you’ll be back again, just like Eminem…

There's always stuff in life we're not sure of. I'm thankful , and eternally grateful, to have a love for God. Yes, I've put my life, my family, my everyday existence, into God's more than capable hands. Some would say I'm mad, some would pooh pooh the idea... As General Melchett once remarked in Blackadder Goes Forth.."You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!" So, have a read, have a think. I don't have all the answers, but I know a man who has ;-)
