Be Thankful For What You've Got
Be thankful for what you’ve got Don’t worry about what you don’t have Sometimes it’s what you’re not. Be thankful for what you’ve got
Sometimes I start to wonder what might have been If I had crossed the line been more like him
I might have missed the sunrise creations hymn
I might have never walked on water Just learned to swim. CHORUS
I went up to the mountains to try to pray Gazed upon the hillside words cannot say Then I saw the sunset at the end of the day Looking through the clouds trying to find my way. CHORUS
You start off with your dreams you don't want to defer
You’ve waited for the voice you sometimes think you heard
Look up at the stars none of them the same When all is said and done only love remains
In My Memoir Welcome To My World
As I was about to finish my my memoir I wrote this
As I look back at this manuscript, a couple of things strike me: if you don’t believe in God, you may see so much of my life as a series of coincidences, but as I look at it, I see the loving hand of God the Father directing my path, and that I should have been thankful my entire life for all the good things God has given to me.because of that feeling I wrote Be Thankful for What You’ve Got.
It strikes me as I look back upon these pages, how my life’s script is atypical of a rock and roller or a Christian for that matter. The typical story of a rocker would be: I had bad management, toured, got burned out and had a bad record deal – not, I published my own music, played locally, and taught guitar.
Og Mandino in his great book, The Greatest Miracle in the World, urges us to proclaim our rarity. That's what a memoir is, telling your unique story. I guess what Andy Warhol said was true, “Thank you for my fifteen minutes of fame.”
