Praying for Time

My good friend Marty Omoto reminded me of a song by George Michael called “Praying for Time.”  

The words are so moving and so relevant as we watch the destruction of the California dream. Check it out.…

Here’s a portion of the lyrics:

These are the days of the empty hand

You hold on to what you can

And charity is a coat you wear twice a year

This is the year of the guilty man

Your television takes a stand

And you find out

That what was over there is over here

So you scream from behind your door

Say what’s mine is mine and not yours

I may have too much but I’ll take my chances

Because God’s stopped keeping score

And you cling to the things they sold you

Did you cover your eyes when they told you

That He can’t come back

Because he has no children to come back for
