The things that are truly important in life sometimes get swept aside in the busyness of life, the raw mechanics of survival or the appeal of a cheap sensation in the here and now.
Love blew the sand in their eyes, but they were too young to see the shadows
Don't let the rain rust your heart; it'll be too late
Don't let the petals fall from the flower; don't let the fire die
Love blew the sand in their eyes; don't let it blow the sand in yours
He was only sixteen, maths and high school English
She was a lawyer's daughter, rosy cheeks and freckles
They grew up on the same side of the river
Shifting winds and changing tides; new personalities
The year he graduated law school they got married
They bought a house a car, two children in the suburbs
It was a millstone round their necks; he became a partner
Their love flew out the window with their old fidelity
He got his secretary, she her alimony
He sees his torn up children weekly by that river
You have to love to live to love to live to love
The foolish man gathers grain – tomorrow he will die
Then someone called from the crowd, "Teacher, please tell my brother to divide our father's estate with me."
Jesus replied, "Friend, who made me a judge over you to decide such things as that?"15 Then he said, "Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own."
Then he told them a story: "A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops.17 He said to himself, 'What should I do? I don't have room for all my crops.'18 Then he said, 'I know! I'll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I'll have room enough to store all my wheat and other goods.19 And I'll sit back and say to myself, "My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!"'
"But God said to him, 'You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?'
"Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God."
