BEFORE THERE IS NO TIME

Description
This song is about saying the things we need to say - doing the things we need to do - and living life to it's fullest... We just never know when we will run out of time so make sure to do what is important "BEFORE THERE IS NO TIME."

There's a woman I know - a good friend of mine back in Clinton, Iowa - who was touched by this song while I was at a Revival singing. After I had finished she came up to me in tears and told me how much the song meant to her. She noted the first verse and how it just connected with the emotions she was going through at that very moment, unbeknownst to me. Her story touched me so that it is something I still remember each time I sing it.

A FATHER SAID,
I WISH I'D TOLD MY SON
HOW MUCH I LOVED HIM SO
BUT NOW HE'S DEAD AND GONE
HOW CAN I SAY GOODBYE
WHEN I NEVER SAID HELLO

Her son had died in a tragic way that left her relationship with her husband broken. He had blamed himself for the boy's death and regretted not having a better relationship with his son. Literally, he had given up on the living and was deeply bringing both himself and his wife down...crushing the love they had once had for each other. She was barely keeping herself afloat holding onto hope that things would get better. We took that moment, and I walked outside with her and prayed. In that moment there was a smile upon her face, which imprinted in my mind's eye. It was a thought that everything would be alright, even if it was just for that brief moment in time, she was able to let out the pain which she had been holding onto for so long.

Make sure you don't forget to let the ones you love know that they are truly loved...
