Nothing to Prove

Hey folks,
    I know it's been forever since I've been on and posted anything..I'm sorry!
          Life gets crazy. There's a lot to think about. Feeling like we're short on time...So I just want to share with you this song that I heard on SiriusRadio the other day, and it made me slow down for a second to think.

Nothing to Prove
by Phillips, Craig and Dean

You taught me how to ride a bike, 
tie my shoes and fly a kite,
how to swim and how to fish, 
to see a star and make a wish,
said it's ok to make mistakes
just don't get stuck in yesterday
forgive, forget and move ahead
because life is what you make of it.

Now you're gone, and all I have
 are memories I hold dear.
But if I'm quiet, I hear your voice
still ringing in my ears

Saying live with no excuses,
love with no regrets,
laugh a lot and leave this life with nothing left unsaid,
make this world a better place,
don't be afraid to cry.
And when it's finally time to say goodbye,
there's nothing to prove,
nothing to lose, 
nothing to hide.

You see life can not be measure by
the place you live, the car you drive, 
the thing that counts the day you die,
is who are, and what's inside.

So tell the truth, don't ever lie,
integrity at any price,
your words, your bond, your highest price.
So guard it close, and live your life.

So many things I learned from you,
'bout life and love and play.
But I learned more by how you lived, 
And why I heard you say,

Live with no excuses,
love with no regrets,
laugh a lot and leave this life with nothing left unsaid,
make this world a better place,
don't be afraid to cry.
And when it's finally time to say goodbye,
there's nothing to prove,
nothing to lose, 
nothing to hide.

I only want to live my life half as well as you,
to leave behind what I received, it's all I want to do.


"Do not worry worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Mathew 6:34.
