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

Lord Shrink This Room

Lord shrink this room; until everyone feels wanted
Lord shrink this room; until everyone feels no pain
I’ve seen way too much sadness
In the people here tonight

Something ‘s just not right
Holy Spirit, Come
And flow through us tonight
Help us to show
The depths of Your love

This a family of love
A family from above
God lives here

This is a family of love
A family from above
God lives here
A family of love
A family from above
Holy Spirit, … You live here …

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,
