So, I was listening to some old George Jones tunes the other night…reminiscing about my mom. She loved the Possum…and even a die-hard rock-n-roller like me can respect the genius of some of his lyrics. Though the song has nothing to do with the way I’m about to use his lyrics…I think he was on to something…but just wasn’t aware at the time. For example…
“I’m still around…’cause I’m not ready yet.” – George Jones / I’m Not Ready Yet (1980)
But here’s what I think ‘Ole George forgot to add after the word “yet” — “…God still has me under construction”.
That’s how I feel right now. I’m still around…’cause I’m not ready yet…God still has me under construction. And when God has finally finish molding me, and used me for his purpose on this planet…I’ll get to go home.
Yes, you can now tell all of your friends, “Uh, I think Mr. Bill has lost his last marble.” But of course, folks have known that fact for a VERY long time.
God bless you all!
