I’ve been here thinking
Time is not so kind to me
I guess it’s sort of bittersweet
Maybe it’s not its fault it speeds
And though it’s not so hard to see
The two of us are frenemies
I keep track of its many steps
But can’t seem to predict the next
Just when I think that I know best
I find myself in quite a mess
Maybe if I’d fight it less
I’d feel like I can finally rest

I’ve tried to give it my command
I’m only a single grain of sand

Though some will not quite understand
The way I feel that I must stand

I’m not here to be a plan
I’m here to be a better man
I’m learning how to know my place
And put God in all the choices I make
Asking him to still my wake

Heaven knows why I need grace

Lord, be my faith ’till I see Your face
When thunder causes earth to shake

Know the steps I aim to take
Then give me rest…. for heavens sake

-Caleb Osvold
Caleb Osvold was born and raised in Minnesota, but never turns down an opportunity to travel. This has led him to experience almost all central and western states, as well as three countries in South and Central America. He thoroughly enjoys every minute of adventure, and refuses to ignore the undeniable evidence of Christ’s character in the nature around him. One particular and continual lesson in love is shown to him through his dog, Cronos. God saw fit to bless him with company in a time in life when it was most needed. And He thanks God for him every day.
Caleb has been writing since he was quite young, and has always had a deep passion for the written word. He firmly believes—that in his case at least—there are some expressions and emotions that can only be written. And for the past many years he has been doing just that. Expressing emotion in the only way he knows how— writing it down.
