LET'S BACK-TRACK

1Cor. 12:20 "But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another."

Let's back-track…
Back to when things were simple;
So complicated we've become,
Back…to when all things were very special.

It didn't take much to please us,
Small things gave us a thrill;
Now, it seems to take a great deal,
This "emptiness" to fill.

Remember when a hand-made card,
Could start the tears to flowing;
And, when hands held in the park,
A great deal of love…was showing?

Now, a card is not enough,
Thought it be a large, store-bought one;
And, what was once a walk,
Hand-in-hand…no longer fun.

Oh, for the simple days,
When people showed acts of caring;
Now, all we seem able to do,
Spend money…no longer ourselves…sharing.

We pay for all we get,
Don't know how to receive;
So self-sufficient…we've become,
Not easy to trust in others…to believe.

Let's go back to "the good old days",
When we needed one another;
When we could ask for help,
From a friend, neighbor, sister, brother.
