Two Songs of the Day

Children of the Heavenly Father

Children of the heavenly Father, safely in His bosom gather; nestling bird nor star in heaven such a refuge e'er was given,
God his own doth tend and nourish, in His holy courts they flourish; from all evil things He spares them, in His mighty arms He bears them,
Neither life nor death shall ever from the Lord His children sever; unto them His grace he showeth, and their sorrows all He knoweth,
Praise the Lord in joyful numbers, your protector never slumbers; at the will of your defender, every foeman must surrender,
Though He giveth or He taketh, God His children never forsaketh; His the loving purpose solely to preserve them pure and holy;
More secure is no one ever than the loved ones of the Savior; not yon star on high abiding nor the bird in home-nesting hiding.

Sounds Like Life To Me
(Note: We do not believe everything in this song!)

Got a call last night from an old friends wife, said, I hate to bother you
But Johnny Ray fell off the wagon, hed been gone all afternoon
Well, I know my buddy, so I drove to Scullys and found him at the bar
Said, Hey Man, whats goin on, He said, I dont know where to start
Sarah's old car is about to fall apart and the washer quit last week
We had to put Mama in the nursing home and the baby's cuttin teeth
I didn't get much work this week and I got bills to pay
I said, I know this aint what you wanna hear but its what I'm gonna say

Sounds like life to me, it aint no fantasy
It just a common case of everyday reality
Man, I know its tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you're caught up in some tragedy
It sounds like life to me

Well, his face turned red and he shook his head
He said, you don't understand, three kids and a wife depend on me
And I'm just one man, top it off we just found out Sarah is two months late
I said, Hey, bartender, set us up a round, we need celebrate

Sounds like life to me, aint no destiny
Yeah, the only thing for certain is uncertainty
You gotta hold on tight, just enjoy the ride
Get used to all this unpredictability, sounds like life
Man, I know its tough but you gotta suck it up
To hear you talk you're caught up in some tragedy
Sounds like life to me

 We thank the Lord everyday for His rich mercies and carrying us through our trials in life, and thankful for another day to live to worship and serve Him!  We certain do not deserve His forgiveness!

Everything Has Its Time

As I am sitting here pondering about my life, there is a certain scripture that the Lord brought to my heart.  Nothing I have not read before, but one that is there to remind over and over again that everything has its own season!

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones. and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.
