I Sure Miss You


If life could only bring again,

the days I took for granted when

To hear your voice was just a call away


Oh what I'd give for just some time,

to say the things that slipped my mind

There's so much now I'd really like to say


But I can never go back when

we did the things we did back then

I'll store those precious memories in my mind


I'll take what you've instilled in me;

I'll try to be all I can be

And walk the path that you have left behind.


I sure miss you;

life will never be the same with you not here

Each passing day has brought much pain

But with God's grace my strength remains

I sure miss you,

but Heaven's sweeter with you there.


The little things that seemed so small

are now gold in a memory vault

I cherish every one I have of you


Now I can see and recognize

the part you played to shape my life

I often see you in the things I do


In God's design and master plan

He saw the hurting hearts of man

As we would say goodbye to those so dear


So with our family and friends

we'll be together once again

We'll view all Heaven's splendor hand in hand.


I sure miss you;

life will never be the same with you not here

Each passing day has brought much pain

But with God's grace my strength remains

I sure miss you,

but Heaven's sweeter with you there.

It's as if the words were taken from my heart and mind...again, beautiful and perfect.

Thank you Vickie...

Thank you, Gini . . . I knew you would appreciate this one . . . every day at 3 pm I spend an hour with a Gaither video on one of my satellite channels . . . I had never heard this song before today . . . it was performed by the Crabb Family . . .
