I Saw the Light
I saw the light a long time ago, but today I start Radiation therapy, so I reckon my headlight ‘ll burn a little brighter for a while. Don’t worry, I’m not a radiation to risk to friends and family and safe to be around.
Bless all of you. No matter what I’ve had a great life and a secure reservation in Eternity, but God says not to cash in my Railway to Heaven” pass yet; He still has plans for me.
So many cards and letters I can’t to ’em fast enough. It has been like Jimmy Stewart in “A Wonderful Life” but I didn’t have to jump off a bridge to get to see it.
However this plays out, I want to be a witness. I ain’t perfect but I did my best and asked forgiveness for the rest, and I think that’s all we are asked.
The docs have cleared me for one set of a gig to fill in on mandolin with The Leonard McSwain band at Bethel Baptist in Shelby, N.C. for a church supper and Mission fundraiser; just my kinda gig. It starts at 6:00 Saturday. For details call them 704 482 8922. If you live to far away and can’t make it, or want another cause consider a donation to MACC. (Musicians Against Childhood Cancer) www.bluegrassclassic.com All that money goes to St Jude. Go see it if you can. The docs won’t let me go that far this year.
This illness has slowed my steps, but not my spirit. I am determined it will not rob me of my of my dignity or my opportunity to serve my people in some way even if somewhere down the road it does me in.
If it lets the world know of the Grace of Jesus, the love of devoted family, the healing power of music and, of the wonderful talents of all my bluegrass friends, then the beast was defeated even if it takes my physical body in the end.
I saw the light a long time ago, and it has been a wonderful life for it, and I believe I still have some miles to go, though I may walk them a little slower from here on.
God bless every one of you. Luv u all. If you see a little light bobbing along in some old Southern doctor’s hypertrophied brain, know I just want to try and be a beacon and I’m not dangerous to hug.
