You Never Know Who’s Watching

On June 19, 2012 I was 79 years old, and starting to live my 80th year. I decided to write down Things I Have Learned So Far:

11. You Never Know Who’s Watching

Or who you’re influencing in some way. And sometimes you know. And sometimes you don’t. So I’ve learned to think about it.

In my writing groups one of our spontaneous writings was to make a list of ten persons who had influenced you. That wasn’t too hard. Then we would make a list of ten persons that you influenced. And that was harder. Partly because it seems like bragging and we’re taught not to brag. But partly also because you don’t always know.

I believe that I never know who is watching and when. And I also I believe that children are always watching.

I wrote a song to the tune of Fairest Lord Jesus, and the words are:

Someone Is Watching

Someone is watching

How I follow Jesus,

How all my actions reflect my faith.

Help me not falter;

Help me not stumble.

Let Jesus lead me every day.

Someone is learning

From the words I’m saying

What Jesus’ stories mean to my life.

Help me be faithful;

Help me be gentle.

Give wisdom to my heart each day.

Someone is knowing

How far I am going

To bring the peace Jesus said could be.

Help me be daring;

Help me be caring

So those who watch me join His way.
