Jesus Softer Than The Falling Rain

“Jesus love” “Softer than the falling rain”
The healing rains

Precious there, a broken heart
Ne’r a weakness to impart
Tis strength disguised, in humble gates
Artful waves of streaming tears
With healing wisdom, as it waits
Learns to lose, because of love
Softer than the falling rain
True love gains and lives again
Where new dreams doth emerge and call
Fills the hollows up with grace
The island stands not merely lone
When water all around it’s shores
Keeps it buffered for a time
Until the island meets it’s form
Where substance of our faith is born

Lord, You Are My Everything

I’m number one in God’s book.
Number one in His heart
To Jesus,
I’m everything

My heart was tired and hungry
But Jesus you fed me
By Your Stripes
Now I am healed

I need nothing but You, dear Lord
The Creator of all things, seen and unseen
You lived and died to give me new life
New peace for eternity

And all the pretty little things
of this world
They whither, they fade
and they break
They are just the icing …
The snowcap on the mountain
But Jesus, You are cake

Jesus … You are …
Jesus … You are
Jesus You are
My everything

Glory Hallelujah

Every cord that tried to bind you
Will fall away behind you
Every pain remind you
That a crown of jewels awaits …

You will ne’r be bitter
You’ll be sweeter for the finding
You thought you’d die, but then realized
How strong it grew your faith

To the One who’s worthy
We’ll lay them at His feet
Singing Glory Hallelujah
At the trump sound when we meet

To the One who’s worthy
We’ll lay them at His feet
Singing Glory Hallelujah
At the trump sound when we meet

Have a super God blessed day friends
You are so loved

Perception of The We

Perceptions of the we
Emotions tuned to Thee
Filtered through His Spirit
The cistern filled, a honey tree

Harmonious in living
On selfless buzzing wing
Alone, and yet together
in unison, we sing

True respect for others
Together hears the prong
All the parts are tuned together
In our chorale Springtime song

With the fragrance of the flowers
The air is filled with love
The wonder of the nectar
From our faith that’s from above

Kelly S Griswold

Humble dove

Begin the music
Strike the Timbral
Play the melodious harp
Hold your hands high
March humbly on,
In Heavenly Harmon love
His Holy word, proclaims the truth
Sharper than any two edged sword
Move with grace
Move with style
Harmless as a dove

When you fret
You rob yourself
Making friends with stress
Putting peace on the shelf

Let the thief
Steal no more
Bring your thoughts back home
Trust God and be secure

God has all things
In control
He never changes
He loves us all

Holdfast to His word
You will be strong
Hope without wavering
All the day long

Why do we have this hope deep within
Because of the cross at Calvary
Joy can’t be robbed
When you live in His grace
With His victory, faith and dignity

Your joy can’t be robbed
When you live in His grace
With his victory, faith and dignity

Who Remembers

Who remembers?

Pretty as a pic

I remember that night
When I was six
Curlers tightly set
My head hurt a bit

Sleepy and tired
I awoke with a fright
I cried “Mom my curlers
Are pinching me tonight ”

With a hop skip and a jump
She came to my aid
“We must suffer to be beautiful”
Her soothing voice said

She put some ponds cold cream
Into the palms of my hands
We rubbed our hands together
To help me forget

Never mind the mere pinches
That danced on my head
I thought about tomorrow
I’d be beautiful by then

Our Brook

He is Faithful
He is kind

Our brook beside the mossy hill
Calms my soul
Calms my soul
I see the bubbles bobbing still
Up and down
Up and down

A forever flowing faithful bide
You’ll never hear it say goodbye
Moving with each branch and pine
Rushing in with each springtide

I hear the steady water mill
O’er the rocks
O’er the rocks
Right ‘long side me when I’m ‘lone
Bending down
Bending round

Barely running on today
Showing me it’s time to rest
I’ve endured a long day’s quest
I’ll slumber deep with God’s caress

Trusting when the river winds
For even in it’s downward phase
It is kind
It is kind
It is kind
For He is kind

Tea Time

There’s a beauty that steeps on the inside
With teacups tipped and sipped
Table talks held til the break of dawn
As long as one teabag is dipped

And the water that boils; is endless
One cup tints another, for you
Whistling tunes that reach to the moon
At nights end; we’re drinking purely dew …

Olden autumn memories

The Freedom of Forgiveness

When we are betrayed; we are deeply wounded. We feel hurt. Oh what to do with the painful feelings. We can hold on to them and compound the pain; or we can let go and let God take on the pain. Oh what a freeing choice it is, to forgive someone who has hurt you; as He does. God can turn all that sadness into joy once again. We can live in freedom, peace and happiness, by not holding a grudge.
Jesus Himself, endured the most crushing of all betrayals; as he lay dying on the cross for all of our sins. By doing this He gave us new life; victory over sin and death. “Jesus loved us so much. He sent His only son that whosoever believeth in Him Shsll have everlasting life.” John 3-16
He sent us Holy Spirit to lead us in power. A new way of life and living. One free from the weight and bondage; that is much too heavy to bear. Living with Christ and His perfect love in our hearts, is a life God intended for you. A life filled with happiness and joy!

Philippians 3-13-14
“Brethren I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do; forgetting those things which are behind reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Have a grace filled, weightless day,
