Forever Young

On a grey stormy day driving to work my IPod played..... Forever Young sung by Rod Stewart. I'd listened to several other songs before that but this one caught me. I looked to the field on the right and there was a very young colt by it's mother. The colt would take one or two steps away, look back and then walk a little farther, run back. I stopped to watch it while the song played.
What a blessing these lyrics are. What a blessing we all seek and want and can have. But look at the whole of it. I can still see the video from many years back. He was riding in a truck with a little boy.
May this be a blessing to you as well as you read these lyrics.
May the good Lord be with you down every road you roam/and may sunshine and
happiness surround you/when you're far from home.
And may you grow to be proud/dignified and true/and do onto others as you'd
have done to you. /Be courageous and be brave/and in my heart you'll
always stay forever young forever young.

May good fortune be with you/may your guiding light be strong.
build a stairway to heaven with a prince or a vagabond.
An may you never love in vain an in my heart you will remain
forever young forever young forever young forever youn

And when you finally fly away I'l be hoping that I've served you well
for all the wisdom of a lifetime no one can ever tell.
But whatever road you choose I'm right behind you win or lose
forever young

I think it should be God

God abides
