Life Happens to You
LIFE happens to you!
This is a story of not so long ago
When I wasn’t so smart, but thought I was so
One day I sat down with paper and pen
To chart out my future from now to then
I listed out all the things I wanted to do
Smiled as I imagined myself doing s few
Charted out my future in great detail
Smugly thinking to myself “Now I can’t fail”
Prepared I was, for life on paper
Unprepared I was, for life’s capers
Because I honestly didn’t have a clue
That while you are busy making plans, LIFE happens to you!
All my plans went for a toss
For I had forgotten God was the boss
Life happened to me while I wasn’t looking
I never realized what God had for me cooking
So many surprises he had for me in store
Much more than I wanted, and then some more!
So this, is my story, Ladies and Gentlemen
This is me now, very different from how I was then
I do my work down here; leave the rest to the Big Man
