Better off in a pine box?


I thought of this song by Doug Stone, ‘Better off in a pine box.’

I don’t know how long it will be on Youtube, but it is here right now, Better off in a pine box.

I don’t know who has the rights, etc.

But, it is a beautiful song which you should download on your iPhone, or iPod.

The author takes us on a mental journey about the pain of a lost love. And he describes how it might be better to die (be in a pine box) and head back to Georgia than to live with her on his mind.

And, I thought of that song as I wrote “I love life.” I have been that heart-broken. I have been there.

And for that brief moment in time, I thought I might be better off in a pine box bound for Texas then to live with her on my mind. And I will write that story some time.

Because the Devil followed me around the world that time. Yes HE DID!!!

But, that is for later, I am still here. I enjoy life, thanks to the Grace of God Himself. And His Son, my Lord.

But, the oxygen still takes these inert elements and makes LIFE happen.

And that is a miracle.

Don’t you think?
