Note about the audio clip:
This Windows Media Player will enable you to hear the writer read the words of the writing, making the writing come alive with the tone, tempo, inflection and style intended by the writer. We suggest that you read along while listening, with the combined senses working to add depth to your enjoyment of the writing.
How to operate the audio
In some cases the audio will start automatically. In other cases, you need to press the play arrow. (The other buttons such as Stop and Speaker can be turned on or off by clicking.) If the audio does not work on your computer, email us guidance. For many computers, the audio file takes many seconds to download, and thus you need to wait for the moving progress square to finish before pushing play if you want to hear a smooth continuous flow of words. Pull back the progress square to hear it again. Enjoy!

A Book About Life
By Antoinette Bender
Copyright 1991 Antoinette Bender
The chapters of life continue.

When you stop to think,
a number is just like age.
It's a book with each passing page
called "A Book About Life."
Some books are short,
some books are long.
It also teaches us
what's right from wrong.
A chapter unfolds,
with each passing day.
You're left in a mystery
from ever what come may.
When you turn to the very last page,
it's time when Almighty God calls.
Then you realize how fast life goes,
when "The Book About Life" draws to a close.
Then a new chapter begins,
starting life for all eternity
in glorious heaven,
with Our Father, God Almighty.
