Looking Back


I just recently celebrated 15 years of ministry in my current church. I don't know about you, but anniversaries also lead me to look back on all that got me here. I think of so many people who were at one time good friends, but now distance, busyness or just negligence have created distance. I wish that wasn't the case, but, it seems, that's a part of life. It made me think of a song by one of my favorite artists - Wayne Watson. It's called "A Season In Your Path." I sang it as I transitioned from my last church. I think the words are very appropriate. I hope you like it.

A Season in Your Path
by Wayne Watson


Heard that friends are friends forever
But we don't talk much anymore
I guess that I’ve gone my way
And I guess that you've gone yours

Was kindness too neglected
On my list of deep regret?
In spite of distance unexpected
Can we forgive but not forget?

Sometimes I think about you
Some old memories make me cry
Remembering the good times makes me laugh
But all in all I'm richer
For the happy and the sad
And I’m thankful for a season in your path

I guess God alone deciphers
When people need each other most
Who will be the blessed receiver
And who will be the gracious host
And all a servant here can do
Is unto the Lord avail
Content at times to be the wind
And at times to be the sail

If another winter settles
On your shoulder down the road
Without a thought of what’s behind us
Let me help you pull your load

Sometimes I think about you
Some old memories make me cry
Remembering the good times makes me laugh
But all in all I’m richer
For the happy and the sad
And I'm thankful for a season in your path
