When I

When I was born and left the comfort of my mother’s womb,
It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.

When I was learning to walk and stumbling with every step,
It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.

When I went to school and tried to learn English, math and science,
It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.

When my family moved away and I had to start all over alone,
It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.

When my heart was broken and it had to mend,
It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.

When my best friends died and I missed them so very much,
It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.

When my children where grown and I had to let them go,
It was the hardest thing I ever had to do.

But when I loved the Lord and trusted Him,
It was the easiest thing I ever did.

    Thank you for the comment on my blog. It is encouraging to hear that your son still likes to play Timez Attack even though he knows his facts.
