"in the blink of an eye" as written by and Peter C./millard Kipley....
You put me here for a reason
You have a mission for me
You knew my name and You called it
Long before I learned to breathe

Sometimes I feel disappointed
By the way I spend my time
How can I further Your kingdom
When I'm so wrapped up in mine

In a Blink of an eye that is when
I'll be closer to You than I've ever been
Time will fly, but until then
I'll embrace every moment I'm given

There's a reason I'm alive for a blink of an eye
And though I'm living a good life
Can my life be something great?
I have to answer the question

Before it's too late
Cause in a Blink of an eye that is when
I'll be closer to You than I've ever been
Time will fly, but until then

I'll embrace every moment I'm given
There's a reason I'm alive for a blink of an eye
If I give the very best of me
That becomes my legacy

So tell me what am I waiting for?
What am I waiting for?
In a Blink of an eye that is when
I'll be closer to You than I've ever been

Time will fly, but until then
I'll embrace every moment I'm given
In a Blink of an eye that is when
I'll be closer to You than I've ever been

Time will fly, but until then
I'll embrace every moment I'm given
There's a reason I'm alive for a blink of an eye

    General CommentWhenever I hear this song, it is as if I can see scenes of my life flash before me. Good times, hard times, times of trials and tribulations, times of great perserverence and strength in who He was and still is in my life.

    When I go home to be with Jesus one day, I want this song to play. I want my loved ones to see my life here - and to remember, that in the blink of an eye - we are here and then gone. I will, one day, be in my forever home...just...like...that. In the "blink" of an eye.

    We need to treasure our moments here and now, because we do NOT know what tomorrow will bring.
