I had Pneumonia and Bronchitis last week it's getting better slowly. But it got me to thinking of how thankful I am for God in my life and of Family and Friends in my life. Any way this song came out of those thoughts. Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy.

Here are the Lyrics
1 I'm Captured By the Morning Light of the Rising Sun
Trying to Think of the Last Time I Felt this Way
And From Behind the Mountain Side, The Rays start to Shine
Giving New Light to What is Gonna Be a New Day
That God Has Made
So Let Us Rejoice and Be Glad in It
Let Us Count All Our Blessings
And Be Thankful for Them
Pull Aside the Ones You Love
And Those That You Hold Dear
Kiss Your Wife and Hug Onto Your Kids
Be Thankful for the Time with Family and Friends
Be Thankful to God for this Life We've All Been Given to Live
Just As a River of Light Flows from the Eastern Sky
To This Old Darkened Town
God's Love and God's Light Can Flood into Our Souls
And Turn Our Lives Around
He's the Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End
Creator of this World, That We Live In
He's Calling All of Us, to Come Unto Him
And Be Forgiven of Our Sins
...So That We Can
LIVE IN HEAVEN...
LIVE IN HEAVEN...
DON'T WAIT ANOTHER DAY
THIS MIGHT BE YOUR LAST CHANCE
JUST COME AS YOU ARE
I Was There at the Age of 23
Driving Down the Road to A Job
My Boss and Me
He Started Telling Me About His Testimony
Of How He Came to Believe
He Asked Me If I Wanted the Same Thing
I Said "No Man, I Make My Own Way"
"Thank You, But That's Just Not For Me"
So I Kept On Roaming Endlessly
Trying to Fill the Emptiness with All the Wrong Things
And at the End of My Rope, Hanging By a String
My Way Just Wasn't Working For Me
So I Took a Step of Faith
I said "Lord I Need to Change"
"Forgive Me, For All My Sinful Ways,
Come Into My Life, Be My Lord and King.
Cause I Believe That You Sent Your Son (Jesus) to Die For Me
